COME ON LEEDS!!!
If anyone can Colin can, at least he won't take no nonsense or lame excuses from Bates, it will be back him or sack him or he may just walk. For me he is trying to get results with what he has been given this season, call it a honeymoon period if you want, the time to judge Colin imo is next season when he has assembled his own squad of players. We all harp on about the dross in the team and list those players we want to see leave the club because they are not good enough yet criticise the manager when he can't wave a magic wand and make those players into Championship contenders. But if you want Barcelona football I don't think that is ever going to happen under Colin, he has been brought in to do a job of getting us out of this division, the play off's if possible this season which is not going to happen now obviously, or the top two next season and I don't think playing pretty football is how he is expecting to achieve it, it's a bit like the West Ham situation they don't like the way the cunt Allardyce plays his football but they will take promotion no question, am sure we will all settle for the same with Colin next season.
These two things are not mutually exclusive, rather the opposite. Teams who keep possession, who use the full width of the pitch, who pass to each other, who have a bit of pace in the side .... are not prevented from getting a foot in when it matters.
Football, play a bit of football ffs!
One suspects, Musta, that you're too much of a purist to ever appreciate a Warnock team.
I, personally, enjoyed seeing a piss and vinegar Leeds team get a bit of blood on their boots. At the end of the day we're a very average team, in average form, away at a team that has swept all before them of late. We had to try something, especially once we went a man down. It almost worked. Had Snodgrass taken his chance some might have called it a strategic masterclass by Warnock.
I want to see Leeds play winning football above anything else, I don't care how it happens. I'm prepared to give Warnock this season for free, on the proviso that he gets a team in that does win games next season.
