What has happened to our club?

We have a chairman who treats the fans with distain and uses the official programme as his publicist, a team that either does not care or cannot be motivated by the current coaching staff. All this in a season that promised much more. A new broom needs to change attitudes and quick. If it was up to me I’d drop all but Snodgrass for the game v Doncaster. I’ve never been so distressed/annoyed at events in Leeds 11.

Score Prediction: Leeds 1 Doncaster 1

United have failed to beat a full opposing compliment since Millwall at home early December.

The display against Coventry was abject, commitment lacking and the substitution of McCormack baffling. The reliance on youth over experience has clearly failed and I suspect Redfearn’s last stand will see O’Brien, Bruce and Brown recalled for basement boys Doncaster.

This shouldn’t be a game viewed with trepidation, but I find it hard to make a case for Leeds winning.

Score Prediction: Leeds United 2 Doncaster Rovers 2

It’s now or never for Leeds as bottom club Doncaster visit. Tuesday’s crushing defeat to Coventry was too much for the Whites fans to bare and a vast improvement is needed asap if Leeds are to try and secure a play-off position, or even a place in the top half of the table. In my opinion, only a few that played Tuesday deserved to wear the famous Leeds shirt and it’s clear a fresh approach is needed following another embarassing week for the club.

Score Prediction: Leeds 1 Doncaster 1

United have the third of their “winnable” games on Saturday when they try to avoid a third successive defeat against Doncaster. A much-improved defensive show is required. Whilst the player “loan” policy has clearly not worked, the manager “loan” policy has not worked either. With McCarthy and Warnock currently unemployed, it is high time the managerial position was sorted to try and build some foundations for a promotion push next season.

Score Prediction: Leeds United 1 Doncaster Rovers 1

Saturday’s fixture against Doncaster should be the last in the caretaker reign of Neil Redfearn. It’s difficult to see what changes can be made to try to turn the tide following two massively disappointing results.The squad has quantity but a massive lack of quality and the team are drifting rudderless to mid-table mediocrity, with possibly worse to follow next season. I fear another dismal performance to darken the mood even further. BATES OUT.

Score Prediction: Leeds 1 Doncaster 3
