    OK guys and girls

    What the hell is going on at our club?!?!?!?!

    We've at least gotten rid of our 1st weak link this season in former manager Kevin Blackwell, but why have we not replaced the likes of Stephen Crainey, Ian Westlake, Rui Marques, and Ian Moore, with better players?, its a disgrace that those 4 are still on our books, or even came onto our books in the 1st place!

    On the plus side, Matt Kilgallon has been excellent this season, and I think that Frazer Richardson, Seb Carole, and Jermaine Beckford also have very good futures at Leeds United aswell, and which of the managers being mentioned would you like to see come and take us into the premiership? Alan Curbishley is my top vote, with Claudio Ranieri a distant 2nd, very good coach, but tinkers too much like blackwell did!

    I would be after Curbishley or my personal favourite and less obvious choice.....Paul Jewell.

    Heard all this before, but bring on the abuse if you think you have something new ...?!?

    Poor state of affairs at Leeds. They have not got a bad set of players but there's no quality leadership or off the field. I get the feeling that if they could get the right man in charge, there is a enormous potential.

    Ticket costs are a huge issue - some fans would have paid £35 to watch us lose 4-0 to Stoke on Saturday. Common sense has kicked in with much of the fan base, 16000 there last night. I have a mortgage, fuel costs, council tax, insurances to depress me financially without paying more to watch a poor football team, who look as if they could not care less

    Sadly I can hear the moans for free, as I live close enough to the once mighty Elland road to get live Reaction to the goals (or lack there of). The fan base has always been a bit of an issue wen we've been in lower divisions, but with the ridiculous ticket prices at the moment I can only see it getting worse!!

    So who's the man for the job? I'd like to see Mr. Bates use his contacts and get us Ranieri, He'd done a slow but competent job at Chelsea until the cash rich era arrived, and I think he could could be the man to build us a long term rise.

    Still When i'm down in the dumps and sad about how my team has gone to the dogs, I can always console myself with two things - 1. We don't play in Blue and White 2. we're not nicknamed after the most annoying little dogs in the world!

    They're only annoying because they never give up, unlike your pityful football team (I use that term very loosely) who seem to have pitched the towel in already.

    I've listended for far to long about how much more superior to those other clubs in Yorkshire Leeds are...these truly are wonderful times. :biggrin: ;)

    Ranieri is too good for Leeds IMO.

    Latest news from Sky Sports website is Denis Wise and Gus Poyet could be taking over!!! Why?!?!?!?!?! Any other rumours about who could be in the running, or is this the most likely?
    Only live a couple of hours away but wouldn't want to be wasting my money on those recent displays!!

    Has Alan Curbishly been approached? If not, why not? I think he'd be just what Leeds need.

    Whilst I'll always love Dennis Wise (as an ex-crazy gang member) I'm not sure he'll be able to stop the rot

    That'll be Mr. Bates providing jobs for his ex-Chelsea mates then!

    Swindon seem to be putting a block on things at the mo, somethingto do with leeds not wanting to pay the right amount of compensation

    Congrats Wisey, you just enjoyed the shortest managerial honeymoon period...EVER! :biggrin:

    Can't remember who it was that thumped your wimps in white 4-1 last night but I gather once they'd taken the lead they just "pressed on". :rolleyes:

    IT's all a big dream, and i'll wake up soon finding out that we haven't really done the "jobs for the boys trick" and emlployed someone with no proven track record of managing any team well!

    He didn't get a honeymoon period, last week at the Cup game (when we were losing again) Wise was in with Bates just watching, and all the crowd were singing anti Chelsea songs - just bout sums it up really - As big a cock up, as G. Graham to Spurs!

    The only manager in the last ten years to have won a trophy at Spurs?
