I am a manchester united fan all my life and for some reason i have always enjoyed reading this thread.I think it is because you know that the contributiors are genuine leeds united fans all there lives and continue to support them thro thick and thin.It would be nice to see them back in the top flight where I think a team with this huge suppott should be.

Marching on together,

Good sum up - still can't help but feel disappointed at missing out on the play offs, having been top six for so long, and throwing it away so late in the season with defeats at Derby an Palace.

The only two times I felt Leeds got serious goings over were at home to Cardiff and away to Swansea, so I'd have been hopeful for the play offs. The need for investment is obvious, but Uncle Ken has shown no inclination to provide anything meaningful. Larry will therefore have to pull off a minor miracle next season.

Seeing as this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days I thought I'd bring it back to the top with a few goals for Billy, Rufus et al to view ;D  JJ Shelvey was helped by the fact that hos twin brother seemed to be the referee!

Good video compilation of Speed there - brought back some good memories (including the 'Flying Pig').

Neil Warnock your new manager.  It should be interesting to watch the Neil/Ken show.  At least he is from Yorkshire.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/feb/18/neil-warnock-leeds-manager?newsfeed=true

Leeds United have appointed Neil Warnock as manager until the end of the 2012-13 season.


The 63-year-old, sacked by QPR last month, replaces Simon Grayson, who left the club a fortnight ago, and faces the task of reigniting Leeds' play-off hopes the club are currently six points adrift of sixth-placed Birmingham having played a game more.

I have more respect for a man
that says what he means and
means what he says...

Warnock?
The thinking man's Allardyce!
Can only think McCarthy turned them down.
It'll be craic and it'll stay in the championship.

An appointment I'm very pleased with to be honest. Warnock has a great track record in getting promotions - I don't care what he does to get it this time. I think he is going to have to work with what he's got as Uncle Ken sees Leeds as a selling club and will not invest in any meaningful way, obviously save for renewing Maik Taylor's contract!!   >:(   Could a play off place be still in the offing?   :o

Colin's half-time bollicking seems to have done the trick on Staurday - well, on the scoreboard anyway.

Its been depressing lately following Leeds but last weekend was some respite, im happy enough with warnock but he has weaknesses too. Bates is a major problem at the min but at least he listened to fans with getting warnock. Ive been on waccoe alot lately and so much negativity hopefully will change around now. MOT.
