The Game's Gone Crazier

Leeds United's McDermott is even sounding like Warnock now!

It didn't take long. Poor Father Brian is losing his sangfroid already and beginning to talk Old Big Gob gibberish. Listen to him as he mutters, " I said to the players, the worst thing that can happen has happened. They lost. That’s it. I give them the license to make things happen." If that's not Warnockesque bollocks, I don't know what is!

With the water already up beyond his ears, Brian is learning that he can't walk on water after all. Gone is the measured composure of a man who knows he was born to succeed, and in it's place are the ravings of a confused man trying to make sense of his exposed limitations.

Of course nobody is going to blame him yet. Unlike Allardyce at West Ham, a man reviled even as he led the club to promotion, McDermott has a reservoir of good will to draw upon, if only because he replaced the detested Warnock. Brian has said all the right things up until now, so it will take a few more defeats before the Leeds fans throw their toys out of the pram and turn on him, and GFH Capital will rightly be their first target for bile.

Three defeats in four games have illustrated perfectly the short sightedness or short change-edness of the Arab Bank Built on Sand. McDermott was desperate for three players before the window closed, a centre back, a winger and a striker, but his Arab employers would only invest a pittance - so McDermott snatched at Wootton and left himself desperately short of attacking options. The consequences are now, of course, painfully evident.

QPR are already pulling clear of Leeds and Watford look as if they are finding their form. Automatic promotion was always a long shot, but now only the optimistic would see the playoffs as a realistic prospect. "Steady progress" might see Leeds finish eighth, but what use is that exactly?

  8. No comments yet...but I'm guessing you are going to get a few less than complimentary ones fairly soon lol. All I would say is that you really need to be one way or the other you can't be all ' Leeds for the play offs' one week and then on the band wagon the next! Form a view then stick with it!

  11. Ive calmed down after yesterdays defeat,so i will try and not slag u off.i have one question,why do we start the first half of games,as if we are still in the dressing room.bolton aside,we have a shocking record of not scoring in the first half,then we have a mountain to climb in the second.this has to be addressed mcdermott.pissed off,and i think another shit season is upon us,unless we get another striker in...what fucking joy been a leeds fan.i suppose could be worse though,i could follow west fucking ham.

  13. It's hard to disagree with most of your ramblings. However your a bell end and your team could do with you focusing your attentions on supporting them cos they are quite clearly shite.

    1. It was. But Everton are a much better team than Burnley so I cannot understand the relevance.

    2. We beat Everton last year! So shows we can play well when it comes together!

    3. The relevance is that you are trying to make yourself feel better by gleefully pointing out Leeds misery. The fact is you support a Team thats not cutting it in the Premier League. We will not go up this season but will go up next season- and Leeds and West Ham will be Championship rivals next season.

    1. The "Ra soothsayer" is a man who is stuck in a time warp, he should (like Leeds) learn , then move on! and all he did was contribute free advertising for HF after instructing his loyal 8 followers not to comment on this blog. All very pathetic I read what I want and remain objective...

  21. your a premier league side and we are a championship side,you get beat by everton and we get beat by burnley,the relevance is we both got beat by good sides in our leagues,so just because we are a championship side you cant compare everton and burnley their both different leagues,and hey you didnt exactley walk the championship did you?yes you got up but not as you expected,wont be suprised to see you back in the championship in the next2 seasons tbh,the way fat sam plays you will never last,same as warnock never lasted at sheff utd or qpr in the premier league,long ball dont work in the premier league simple fact that you should tell sam mate,one way or another we will be playing you soon and when that day comes i bet you that there wont be an article about the game from your point of view,leeds is your guilty pleasureand we all know ut,just admit it pal

But tell u when ur team is playing ? Monday ? Tues? Wend? Thurs? Extra extra extra.
