Do you understand the concept of form? Also that losing and adversity is a part of learning? A new manager means a new start with new problems to run into not nessicarily solve the current ones. All the good sides along the years have stuck together through adversity and you are chucking the towel in after a run of 6 games.

Can't disagree with that young lady

Stopped listening to his lies weeks ago

We're in our 2nd rut of the season where it is difficult t envisage where our next win is coming from but still some people on here rate him

Our fans have been hoodwinked by Radz & Christiansen's charm :oops:

Bit like me going from talking politics down the pub to becoming prime minister. Or someone "promising" in league two going to manage Scumchester United

Arrived home about 6.50pm mate just in time for one of Mrs 64's culinary delights :)

Are you really ?

No they didn't get any protection from the ref who wasn't good at all but as Riot & I agreed in conversation today Roofe & Alioski are far too lightweight.

I can't understand why Lassoga is jostled off the ball so easily for such a big man, still think our No.9 is our best option up top

We have our best player for the last 15 years in Saiz and we are building. Does anyone stop to think that other fans say the same s**t when we beat them. We arent anything special at the moment and form will come and go but we need to stop putting added pressure on the team asking for sackings and booing the players. Ive been ashamed of our fans at times this season

Jeez they have just returned from a jolly in Spain whilst us fans have worked our tits off & then our players deliver two shockers on the bounce reminiscence of more like a pub team & you don't expect our fans to react. Get off your high horse Radebe we are in a real mess !

for Thomas Christensen to even field a team that is competitive.
For the next four or five games every selection he makes will be another
nail in his coffin.

If you brought in the best manager in the world I fear that given the
circumstances he could not cobble together a team that could win.
That is the sad reality. I think everybody is CRESTfallen.
Against four of the top seven, Sheff Utd, Bristol C, Derby & Wolves :shock:

Wow. Some have been saying it for awhile, but no denying it now, we’re a mess. Another bloody red card?!! Shocking, absolutely ridiculous. We struggle with the physicality this league brings, our solution seems to be uncontrolled aggression and stupid mistakes. Do we have anyone in the coaching team who has played in the championship?! Someone to coach how to ride a challenge and pass? How to deal with the physical side of the game? All well and good having a forgein coach, with players used to this league but we don’t.
The players have talent, we have seen that, but what they need is a championship experienced coach to tweak their styles accordingly.

So we are middle to bottom of the table for season after season we then have 1 good season, finishing 7th, yet then lose 3 of the 4 players that were 99% of the reason that we were able to finish 7th and yet some seem to think it is all down to the manager. Just look at the poor job Monk did at a much better Middlesborough squad and you can see that his and the team's success last season was simply a fluke - if we'd have lost the games where we deserved to lose where would we have finished let alone the fact we ended it in complete freefall.

Now I don't know if TC will be a great manager but what I do know is that he is having to make the best out of the inadequate first team squad he has been given. How many players do we really have that would get into any other teams in the top half? Probably only PJ and Saiz. The rest of our players are at best inconsistent or hardworking but lacking in real quality. When everything clicks we look like a good team but all it takes if for 2 or 3 to have a bad game and we are really struggling. The time for me to judge TC is when he is given a proper defence and a striker. It seems we fixed the problems from last season (the lack of goal-threat from midfield) but replaced it with lack of goal threat from up front and inconsistent defence. Most Leeds fans would only have Cooper, for example, as backup yet he has had to start as the other options are the injury riddled and unproven at Championship level Pennington and the completely unproven at any level Shaugnessy. Alongside that for half a season we haven't had a left back. Then you can look upfront and instead of the 30 goal Chris Wood we have Roofe who was a bit part player last season and Lasogga who has been unable to get a match for the year before he came to us. Both have shown ability in flashes but both lack the sort of consistent performance we need yet the only other options have been Ekuban, a TC recommended signing, who has been unfortunate with injuries but looked like he could have been a good player, and Grot who has so far looked a poor signing but hopefully will come good. Hopefully Tyler Roberts is at least an improvement on Grot and christ what a difference it would make if we had someone capable of running at the opposition with purpose - the sort of thing we were expecting from Roofe but we are still waiting to see - I see Ollie Watkins at Brentford as being a similar type player and signing as Roofe yet such a difference now as Watkins runs at players with a real purpose.

Dropped a couple of thousand today, will be down to 26k attendances if our form doesn't pick up soon.

30,534 there today. I reckon only 10,000 remained in the ground with five minutes to go
Damn right. If the results aren`t as they should be (expected), fans will ask why they should spend their money to watch inept performances like the recent ones.

Having an opinion different to yours doesnt mean im on my high horse. The players dont owe you anything just because you have a 9 to 5 job as they are also only human. Saying things like that really does show a lack of understanding and that shows your ignorance to our current reality.

We most definatly have performed poorly in the last 6 or so games, but a kneejerk reaction isnt something I am comfortable about.

Our fans deserved much more than on offer right now

It's like a one way love affair where we give everything & they give us nothing

Hopefully I'll be at our final sixteen games supporting Leeds as ever hoping to see my team win

4 - Wiedwald - poor game but not protected
3 - Berardi - cult hero but too rash
6 - Pennington - quality just needs the same quality around him
4 - Jansson - was poor today
5 - De Bock - did ok but needs to try running at their back line not turning the ball back
5 - Alioski - tried but too easily knocked off the ball
4 - Vieira - poor
7 - Forshaw - best player on the pitch for Leeds next Captain
4 - Hernandez - poor day should have gone off instead of Lassie
5 - Roofe - works hard but too light weight needs play alongside a big CF not Lassie
5 - Lasogga - what can I say he’s 6’2 built like a brick outhouse can’t win a header, gets pushed off the ball by fly weights our Keeper would prefer to hoof the ball to the smallest man on the pitch rather than bother sending it near him :evil: but he was our only threat and TC took him off to take us down to 9, no sorry Sacko came on :shock:
Subs
6 - Dallas - should be starting
1 - Sacko - shouldn’t even be at Leeds
n/a - Grot - can’t do anything coming on with 5 to go

0 TC - needs to learn there is a plan B and it’s not take Lassie off and put Sacko on :evil: :evil:

PHONEGATE. Someone posts a photo of team all on their phones
the suggestion being that there is disarray and disinterest in the dressing room
AFTER the match. It appears the photo was taken hours before the match.

Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.
