    pathetic leeds

    David there’s nothing pathetic about LU you lack a bit of insight, understanding and empathy. Put yourself in SG’s position with the lack of support from Bates and Harvey. Bates with his deep pockets and Harvey with his pen that refuses to work when prospects are lined up for signing contracts etc. SG is a bloody martyr having to take that sort support from those two. If its anyone who is long a long suffering fan its SG. Count the players that have been lined up by SG over the summer and into August that we have lost because of Bates and Harvey. As for signing goalkeepers we lost two top draw keepers because the Monaco tight arse and his mate failed to offer reasonable contracts on the day to possible signings. We lost Bowyer because of a distance of travel clause that they wouldn’t alter to suit his young family and there’s more . As for O’Neil he turned us down twice because of finances when we were in a better position a few years back so what makes you think he would come now. Get real! So Dave what I am certain of is that as long as we are saddled with Bates we will continue to be a long way from returning to the heady heights of the top four in the Prem. So you have a lot more suffering to do lad. We remain as ever a massive club in transition bearing the burden that comes with Bates hoping that we can give as good account as possible in the Championship which after all is a very respectable league to be in. We strive in good company with the rest of the Fallen Giants in our league similarly hoping for success. In closing David I have watched Leeds since the late fifties patiently waiting for the good times to return with many a false dawn over the last couple of decades. Hopeful as ever MOT and taking my daily dose of Berroca.

    • Couldn't agree more with Bryan and Tom. All you can do is keep supporting the team you love and hope they can get it right on and off the pitch. Or in the case if my club Manchester City get a bucketful of cash thrown at you.
      Having been all over the country watching City in some run down back waters over the years I am pinching myself a little now. I've watched some crap but still enjoyed it because the away games were a great day out. When people sing "where were you when you were shit" you can say we were here all along actually. At least you haven't had to put up with the spoilt kid next door taunting you for 20 years!
      I've no doubt that Leeds will be back in the Premiership sooner rather than later. Having watched them a few times recently I must admit that they do flatter to deceive. It's a case of will the real Leeds United please stand up. They're either brilliant or awful from what I've seen. If they can get a decent run together and sort their defence out there appear to be plenty of goals in the side.
      Anyway keep the faith and good luck.

      • Thanks Dunster. Man C's climb back didn't happen over night and you deserve to be where you are, money or not. You are right we do need the three C's continuity and consistency to instil confidence. You don't always need a team of superstars to achieve success. Talking about stars could do with a couple more like Adam Clayton if can spare them as I feel sure you can with your galaxy. Would take Micah Richards on loan and maybe Vin Kompany or even James Milner should you tire of them, that should just about set us up for the big time. Hope you continue to keep the thumb on the head of the "spoiled brat" next door, you certainly have the man with the Red Beak twitching. Long may it last!

      • Nice to hear from you Dunster, and I am so pleased you are giving Fergie a lot of headaches.
        We have been crying out for a moneyed saviour for the last 2 years, but no one seems interested as Bates is too hard to deal with. Hopefully when we do get promotion he will have so much to hide that he will be pleased to sell to some money. Maybe Abramovich'e rival oligarch may do us a favour or even the Quatari sheikhs will appear. Well we can dream can't we.
        Nice to see Larry defending Howson as I agree he is getting too much stick.
        Maybe Larry should get us promo and then see what Bates does. He could hardly sack him could he. MOT

      • Most of us Leeds fans are hoping that someone comes in and buys the club to take us forward, like what has happened at Man City.
        I dont think it will happen on a scale like it has at Eastlands, but everything is there for a potential investor as we have the fan base and infrastructure to be a major force in the premiership, so you never know. I bet you City fans are still pinching yourselves sometimes when you see how far you have come since the dark old days.
        We just want someone to come in with a vision to take us back to our rightful place at the top table, without all this ownership bulls*it, over priced season tickets, and lack of investment in the team. While ever Papa Smurf is in charge, we will not reach our full potential as there are too many things that are causing the fans to disagree and stay away from games.
        Im praying for the day that i see 40,000 for every home game and a team that we can be proud of wearing the Leeds shirt in the EPL.
        Thats not too much to ask. Is it?
