Leeds United's promotion push derailed after points failure

Hang on, that wasn't meant to happen. Father Brian called for the players to "move on quickly" from the defeat at Reading but the home defeat against Burnley showed that he is caught in the ultimate Catch 22. A more progressive team was selected today, in an effort to "work the opposition keeper" more, but as a result, the previously watertight back four suddenly sprung a leak or two.

So Leeds have now settled back into an all too familiar twelfth place in the table and are already more than three points shy of the team in sixth place - Nottingham Forest. Even the most pessimistic of Leeds fans were predicting "steady progress" this season, but a climb of one place, after what has been hailed an impressive start to the season, hardly constitutes the adjective "steady" albeit there is no denying that it is progress of a kind.

Along with Blackpool, Burnley are the surprise package of the season so far, but what this result shows is that, when up against the better teams in this division, Leeds don't have what it takes to force a result. Defeats against QPR, Reading and now Burnley show that Father Brian has still got a long way to go before he can feel confident that the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond is truly on track and pointed in the right direction.

Old Big Gob Warnock will be smiling tonight. Despite all the accolades for McDermott, Leeds are exactly where they were when he was shown the door - shunted up a Championship siding!

  1. What promotion push? You expected Leeds to go up with next to no investment? Just so you know, the season is 46 games long. By the way, Leighton Baines you legend. Good to see a proper club like Everton get one over on the east London minnows with a Chelsea lad getting the winner. Brilliant.

  2. You know what? I tempted to set up a blog site, supposedly about my team, but then spend my whole time obsessing about a bigger club, just so I keep popping on their NewsNow feed.

    Then again, perhaps not. It's a fucking stupid idea. What sort of onanist would do that?

  6. Not worried about West Ham's ever increasing slide towards the Championship I see Troll? 13th place and a point separates you from a potential place in the bottom three, after tomorrow's games your lot could be in an even more dire predicament!

  11. Erm... you predicted we will finish 8th this season, and due to all your predictions always being spot on, that's what we "fickle" leeds fans expect. How is the "fat controller" doing at your club "built on rubber dildos?" with "ian Bradys" love child at the helm? ( or is she too busy like you writing a shit article about her sad life in the Sun every week to be really bothered about her shite club who will be in a relegation battle this season?)What next for the fat controller and Ian Bradys love child? "dancing on ice" after all, they are skating on it with their dismal start to the season, and if fat Sam gets any bigger? its only a matter of time before he falls through it and takes the whole joke of a club with him to the championship or lower. the "fat controller" used to manage Notts county I believe? maybe his limp and dirty West ham will be playing them soon?

  14. 2 shots on goal for West Ham today. I wager the Hammers will be playing their football in the same league as Orient next season. Poor today.

    Leeds will be fine. Play offs? Maybe, relegation, no.

    Worry about your own team HF. Big Sam and you have at lest one thing in common - you both watched the game on your laptops.
