A Crisis Unfolding For McDermott & Leeds United

Another game, another defeat, this time at the hands of under-performing Newcastle United. Not so long ago, Father Brian was walking on water, now he is being fitted out for snorkel and flippers. Down to thirteenth in the Championship, out of the Capital One Fan Cup, four defeats in the last five games and just two goals scored in 450 minutes of football is not what the doctor ordered!

Excuses will be made of course. Last night, Leeds were playing away to a Premiership club! But a Premiership club that couldn't beat either West Ham nor Hull in front of their own fans, so hardly a team that is on top of its game. Dear me, Leeds even contrived to get Cisse off the mark and he scores with the regularity of, well for the want of a better simile, Noel Hunt!

This was supposed to be a season of steady progress but, thus far, steady progress has resulted in occupying exactly the same position in the table that Leeds occupied last season and exit from the League Cup earlier. Old Big Gob must have a grin stretching from ear to ear as he munches on his Cornflakes in Cornwall this morning!

And the trouble is, Leeds have a close to fully fit squad so there are no excuses to be made. This is the bed and Nice Guy Brian has to lie in it, until January at least. Unless, that is, somebody wakes up fast and signs Becchio on loan.

But Becchio on loan would cost money so...

Question. Is anybody still on board the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Sleeper Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond?

  6. What a ridiculous article, Newcastle are a way better side than Leeds and there is no denying that, a defeat was expected! We would never have won the cup so at least we can try and focus on the league! Oh and just for the record spam dangler, since your a betting man, why don't we have a wager on the fact Newcastle will Finnish above west ham this season!? I am game but the question is are you?

  7. As a Leeds fan can't disagree with you - can't win football matches if you don't score goals.....we don't spend money to recruit people who score goals. Mid table mediocrity beckons once again....

    'Does writing about Leeds help take your mind away from the fact that West Ham are likely to drop down to the same division as Leeds next season'?

  12. you are just a wind up merchant,why don't you concentrate on west ham,leeds supporters know the situation they are in and have known for years,atleast they carry on supporting their team in the thousands,so why don't you act like your supporting your under achieving club!

NO playoff's..??...OUTSIDE CHANCE WITH INFLUX IN JAN. the reverent Brian good man..Hunt ship him out on loan to Barnsley or Halifax Town now....

  19. I write as someone who saw Jackie Overfield make hs debut, so I cannot be a WHU fan in disguise; nor as the son of a lifelong LUFC nut, exiled in later life to London, who loved winding up Hammers' fans on the Upton Park terraces, do I mind a bit of retaliation in return, so I can bring myself to agree with the substance of the blog, yet also question the blogger's right to criticise the way we are run. If he really empathises with and suffers for our condition, why would he publicly delight in picking at our sores ? Or do we all take our football too seriously and so should treat the blog, as pointed but essentially good-natured banter ? Oh, by the way, I don't think Becchio would be the best man for the job - Shane Long is my pick: he scores goals and is athtletic.

  23. The only reason u write about Leeds all the time is because you know it will get a reaction from the fans and ur website hits. If that's wrong then ur obsessed with a small championship club you don't support and the other end of the country to the i wont say club more like a Sunday side aim for big man up top you support in the scabby part of London run by knife happy cockney tits. Or if that's also wrong then i guess ur mum wife and sister if its not the same person are shagging Leeds fans? If im wrong pls explain would love to know. 1 last thing fight me?
