ibex posted a post in a topic,Every year at this time , the manager/coach along with the M.D and owner tell us it will be better next year with better recruitment. We all buy season tickets in hope ( because we want it to be true) then summer arrives we shop in the bargain basement again due to not paying decent wages. The following season is done by feb and we get told the same again regardless of owner. Only last year did we keep a season alive past February and still managed to screw it up at the death.
11/12 - 14th place finish ,but warnock told us he would give us a promotion campaign and a side to be proud of !!
12/13 warnock side to be proud of finished 13th after he was sacked and McDermott won 3 of last 5 games. Gfh told us Bates was gone and they would back their man.
13/14 - big bri had to beg / steal and borrow to get some funds and gfh gave us Noel hunt , Luke Murphy and Scott wootton!! Finishing 15th. Cellino tells us to have faith now he is driving the bus and it will be promotion within 2 years.
14/15- cellino’s cheap European recruitment means we never climb above 12th all season finishing in 15th. However in may adam Pearson tells us things will improve and we are going quality over quantity and with 4/5 top signings we can have a good season.
15-16- the big signings were Stuart Dallas and Chris Wood , slow start means big fat Steve is given the reins and Pearson fucks off in September. We finish 13th!! However massimo promises money back next year if we don’t make top 6!! This time we must be going for it.
16-17 - massimo does seem to take a back seat we seem to recruit wisely even though most are on loan and we buck the recent trend , only to fall apart in April to finish 7th. This time no incentive needed , new owner ( not a crook) buys back ground and tells us top 6 minimum target. Tickets fly out.
17-18. - wood, Taylor , green , bridcutt and Bartley have been replaced by people from the Albanian league etc. After a bright start we sit 13th in April on a run of 2 wins in 17 games. But the jungle drums from Angus as told us to expect an exciting summer as lessons have been learned.
No lessons are ever learned, apart from a brief flicker last year it’s been one massive shit storm since Grayson went close in 10/11 season. Fuck me this cycle is boring Leeds , just stop spouting shit and deliver or at least be honest and say we hope to do ok each year but as we can’t spend big we are going to lower the prices you have to pay to watch the fucking shit we serve up!! Ha ha
Jacko45 posted a post in a topic,Felix Wieldwald - Simply has to go and clearly is going. Think he will quickly end up back in DIV2 in Germany no doubt, doubt any top level German clubs will touch him.
Andy Lonergan contract 2019 - BPF been superb for me, done his best to push for number, unless we bring in someone like Westwood, McCarthy etc he's number 1, so Lonergan can be backup.
Vuron Anita contract 2020 - Unless they are going to play him at CM and just see he is useless to us, has absolutely no pace, so badly exposed at RB or LB. Imagine he's on decent wages too, bet he goes to Turkey or somewhere this summer.
Laurens De Bock contract - Fuck knows about this lad, he looks totally garbage can't see anyone taking him, imagine were stuck with him.
Ezgjan Alioski contract 2021 - Constantly fucking diving about, we were sold that he had pace but he never actually goes passed his man. Wouldn't care if he goes, imagine if he does he will end up in Italy or somewhere.
Kalvin Phillips contract 2021 - Have him as back-up but literally just that, nowhere near good enough to be near starting 11.
Hadi Sacko contract 2020 - Brain dead, completely brain dead, we have to get rid of him somehow but another I struggle to see us shifting.
Jay Roy Grot contract 2021 - Sick of this he's young shite, had decent opportunities and showed he isn't a footballer, not one iota of skill or footballing mind, total dud.
Pawel Cibicki contract 2021 - Too lightweight, not good enough for Championship, imagine he will get taken by a Swedish team this summer.
Caleb Ekuban contract 2021- 24 years old, just isn't a natural finisher or at least not quick enough to take slim chances offered in Championship. Imagine he stays here as back up.

Dark Oasis posted a topic in General Discussion,Leeds United remain without the suspended Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips, Eunan O'Kane and Samu Saiz.
Conor Shaughnessy (ankle) is set to be out for several weeks and new signing Tyler Roberts will not make his debut as he has a knock.
Cardiff could give debuts to new signings Gary Madine and Jamie Ward.
Full-back Joe Bennett serves a one-match ban for his red card in the FA Cup defeat by Manchester City on Sunday.
SAM's prediction Home win 38% Draw 28%
Away win 34%
SAM, the Sports Analytics Machine, is a super-computer built by @ProfIanMcHale of the University of Liverpool.
Leeds have won one of their last 10 home league games against Cardiff (D3 L6), winning 1-0 courtesy of an Alex Mowatt strike in November 2015.
Cardiff have not conceded more than once in any of their last 12 league trips to Elland Road (seven conceded in total) since a 3-0 defeat in April 1963.
Since a run of four successive league wins, Leeds United have picked up just two points in their last five games (D2 L3), failing to score on four occasions in this run.
Cardiff have conceded 56% of their league goals in the last 30 minutes this season; only opponents Leeds (58%) have recorded a higher percentage.
Leeds have lost 11 of the 12 games they have fallen behind in this season in the Championship (92%); the worst such percentage in the competition.
Since leaving Leeds in April 2013, Neil Warnock has faced his former club four times and won all four matches, two of which have been with Cardiff.
Grim reaper Neil Warnock comes to town. Gulp. Can't say I'm at all confident. What is our identity at the minute ? Keeping 11 men on the pitch at Hull was an achievement which says it all. Feel we'll get bullied all over the pitch. Fairies likes Alioski & Roofe really need to be in for a physical battle, which I don't see happening. Shithouse Gary Madine to get the winner.
Leeds 0-1 Cardiff
