On-field investment, confidence and Hull City have been dominating debate among Leeds United fans this week.

IT’s much too soon to forecast where Leeds United might finish up at the end of the season.
Howard Wilkinson’s old adage was always that if we can average two points a game that should get us promotion. But at the moment we are well short of that target.
Steve Evans has an almighty task on his hands but he has indicated that his present crop of players don’t have the quality to take us to better times!
We can only hope that he is allowed a large cash injection to get us out of the mire.
We all know Leeds have the best fans in the land and they will continue to support Leeds to the hilt.
Gloomy outlook for the Whites

I can’t see United’s home form improving this week, the confidence of the players is shot to bits and Steve Evans seems very down beat.
If we let an early goal in on Saturday, the floodgates will open and we could get a real spanking.
I can’t see this nightmare ending any time soon and fear we have not got the stomach to fight relegation as our best players are the youngsters and the senior players don’t seem to care enough.
I can see Cellino firing Evans this Saturday if we lose big time against Hull City, but who else would want the job now anyway?
It’s all very sad but I fear it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better, if it ever does. I suppose Paul Hart could take over like Neil Redfearn did last season and we could hope for the same outcome, but I am not holding my breath.
Tigers will pose big challenge

We will need to be at our very best to beat Hull on Saturday – they are solid in defence, aggressive and creative in midfield and deadly in front of goal.
Through my rose tinted specs I am sure we can do it, but we will need to have the right team in the right formation with the right tactics to do it.
This is a real opportunity for Steve Evans to show what he can do.
Charlie Taylor was awesome at QPR and, assuming no adverse reaction, he should be the first name on the teamsheet. Byram should be the second.
We have been crying out for width for a few years and now we have it, we should use it. The formation at QPR was, in my opinion, part of our undoing.
Whilst both Dallas and Botaka were on the pitch in the second half, we still didn’t have any width, because when playing 4-1-3-2 with Bridcutt as the deep midfielder, Dallas and Botaka were far too narrow in the midfield three.
Hull are a much better team than QPR and we will need to be right on it to get something from this game. Come on Steve – show us what you can do!
