Cardiff's Campbell Leaves Leeds & Warnock In the Soup

Old Big Gob put his usual spin on things - the opposition got out of jail, the referee should have gone to Specsavers, school boy errors cost us - but he told us we should judge him after the window had closed, and the weekend after the window before, Leeds are in just about as bad a place as they have been all season. Or worse.

Look at the table and Leeds really are now chasing just one play off place, with only Miserableborough within reach. Worse still, Boro have a home game aginst Barnsley in the next round of fixtures, whilst Leeds travel to Wolves. Dean Saunders' side sit near the foot of the table but looked decent against Leicester and will fancy beating a Leeds side which travels as well as a three year that's eaten a box of Milk Tray and drunk a bottle of Tizer.

Worse still, Warnock's much vaunted Fortress Elland Road came tumbling down on Saturday, with the absence of a proven goal scorer a key factor. Leeds fans are trying their hardest to see the positives in the Morison Becchio swap, but surely the former leading scorer would have bagged one of the chances on offer against Cardiff? His departure has already cost Leeds a precious point.

The trouble is, should Leeds fall another three points behind the chasing pack next weekend, resignation will set in. The fire in the bellies will cool. The gates at Elland Road will shrink further. The players will start to listen to Warnock's rants on the training field and in the dressing room and think, "Blah, blah, blah, you're gone in the summer anyway". Why battle for a manager who will be shown the door, for fans who can't show up and for owners who were a no show when it came to financing both new players and salary increases in January? If Becchio couldn't get a raise, who can?

Campbell's goal brought in a real pea souper over Elland Road, and it is getting harder and harder to see any sun on the horizon. Another year in the Championship beckons, and then another, and another and...

  1. 'Leeds are in just about as bad a place as they have been all season. Or worse.'

    Stop telling lies Hammersfan. leeds are in exactly the same position as before the Cardiff game namely 6 points off the top six.
    There are 17 Games to go. They are still in with a great chance of making the playoffs and are still in the FA Cup.
    This is why you write the crap that you do,namely to try and make Leeds Fans feel as sad as you do. Sad because you support the SAD Hammers who only have 'avoid the drop' left to play for. Your season is effectively over. What a bitter man you are.

    1. You are wrong and display great ignorance in making this statement. Leeds are in a worse place because:

      1) All the teams at the top, but for Middlesbrough, have pulled further ahead.

      2) Other teams such as Blackburn have moved closer.

      3) The idea of Fortess Elland Road has been undermined.

      4) You have been going between 8th and 12th based on home or away games. You are now in 12th AFTER a home game.

      5) You failed to score at home for the first time in a long time and that coincided with the defection of leading scorer Becchio. You have now lost a man who contributed 19 goals and the guy replacing him comes with no guarantees.

      Can you dispute ANY of that?

    2. What about "Diarra drops west ham in the shit"?

      Delete
    3. no cant dispute much of that, however all but most teams around us also lost, other than Boro who got a spanking. we had a huge percentage of possession and couldnt find the net for one reason or another, but to put the lack of Becchio up as an excuse is crass. the points difference is not massive and we have a game in hand. its not ignorance its football,nothing is gauranteed in football. we failed to score, and we will fail to score again more than likely ..... so just carry on with your blah blah blah as per usual, we would have love to have beaten Cardiff who are top who are a form team, they nicked it. so what, get your thumb out of your arse, and get back to licking windows.

    4. 06:30 here and I will answer these points

      1) Its only 6th place that matters. This is a play off spot which Leeds lost no ground on, in fact made a 3 goal gain on goal advantage
      2)Irrelevant as Leeds have no control over other teams performances and Blackburn did'nt overtake Leeds.
      3)Who's idea was this? You say it as a shit stir. Leeds fans are well aware this has never been established this season
      4)Irrelevant as home and away form is so sketchy in this division
      5)The guy replacing Becchio didnt even start therefore you cant judge him. Becchio scored a number of goals but missed a hell of a lot. The new guy might get more.

      Finally you are displaying great ignorance in ignoring completely the point you can't deny. Your season is over as a West Ham fan. Nothing to shout for except hoping to avoid the drop. You are bitter because Leeds have an exciting 3 months ahead and you have nothing.

  3. 3 post on the same subject.

    You really do need to visit a psychiatrist and get your mental problems sorted out, as obsession to the level you obsess over Leeds isn't a good thing

    4. Don't you think it's possible to give an impression with your words? An impression is something which can be viewed so you work out the rest you uneducated pleb.

      With regard to me capitalising a word in my reply, make IRONY your word for the day. Stay classy leeds fans.

  15. Take it as a compliment lads and lasses,i've yet to see ONE west ham blog by a Leeds supporter. Compare the 2 clubs NewsNow pages also,on the Leeds pages you'll see stories"in the last hour"or "5 mins" on the west ham pages you'll see stories"in the last 7 days". Bugger all happens there,probably why Diarra got the runs and left for Paris.

  18. STOP PRESS- Uefa have move swiftly to shift any blame fro West Ham in the Champions League match fixing scandal. A Uefa source who did not want to be named due to reasons of mass hilarity stated-"i can confirm that west ham united are not in one of our avenues of investigation". This comes as a massive relief for bookmakers who stood to lose a fortune should west ham ever qualify for the champions league then fix a match. When approached at home co owner David Sullivan came to his letterbox and shouted through it "leave me alone you big bully". Apparently mistaking our man for a football agent.

  19. Another STOP PRESS- The archeoligical world was in turmoil this morning as experts theorized over a piece of jewellry found in London under an east end car park. Community payback worker convicted drug dealer Frank Mcavennie explained- "i was doing the last hour of my community work at upton park,sweeping the carpark when i noticed something shining through the clinker"."I immedietly told my gaffer who was retrieving balls from the roof of the stands and he informed the British Museum. Experts think they may have identified the bracelet and think it is possibly columbian. Ancient south american trading links were quickly dismissed as experts announced after carbon dating that the bracelet is circa 1970 around the time of the reign of Robert The Moore.

  21. After leading the exodus out of west ham during the transfer window,Loo Diarra explained that he couldn't wait to join up with new midfield partner Sena kot and hope that he'd be settled at Rennies and give the opposition the runaround. His new manager said that although some people have thiSKIDMARKed as a dirty player he can't wait to see him shooting out of the tunnel.
