Ive been wanting to post on this thread but just havent known what to say really. I feel rather let down by the players and coach because I now feel exactly as I have felt as a Leeds United supporter for the last 10 years or more. The season started with such hope, very good quality football a joy to watch. I felt proud to be a Leeds united supporter once again...and then... what? Where has it all gone wrong to give me this same old let down feeling once again.
You guys who have been banging on all season and before about our need to strengthen at the back have been proved so right, so how did the management and board get it so wrong?
We appear to have a goalkeeper who certainly can't catch the ball, can't even punch it cleanly away, and can't kick it the length of the pitch, but can 'pass' it to defenders who then can't or dont know how to play out of defence. So why does TC keep sticking with him.
I was disappointed with the Millwall result, extremely disppointed with the Cardiff result but to loose like this to Sheffield Wednesday with no passion, no drive and no ideas it seems, it now just feels like the same old same old.....(and now so do I!)
Just one thing I did wonder, have the players, coaching staff etc been guilty of beieving their own hype. The week before the Millwall game, all the aports pundits, sports news channels, local TV were bigging Leeds United up something ridiculous. Returning to the premier league blah, biggest club in the Championship blah, one of the stations even went live to Eddie Gray to ask him about this wonderful resurgent Leeds United. I did think at the time that it may not go down well with other clubs or indeed, knock our players off track if they decided to believe all that clap trap. Rant over....sorry, not a happy bunny!
