Noel Whelan (the former Leeds United player) says we’re not safe (from relegation) then he turns around and says we’re playing for pride.

So which is it?

Are we playing to stay up or are we playing for pride?

The fact is we’re safe; everyone knows we’re safe.

But it’s not good enough to be safe.

The point Noel should be making is why do we have the bloke (Steve Evans) who was sacked by Rotherham here getting poor results when Rotherham have the guy (Neil Warnock) we got rid of when he was doing a good job for us?

Cue all the bizarre fans trying to pretend Evans is doing a good job and Warnock did a terrible job and would have taken us down.

‘Scot’ Harvey born in Leeds

(In response to former Leeds United and Scotland centre-half Gordon McQueen’s comments in the YEP regarding qualification through grandparentage for the Scottish national side) I don’t recall Gordon McQueen moaning when David Harvey of Kentmere Avenue, Seacroft, Leeds, was his colleague in the Scottish team.

Milner ‘average’ for England

On the subject of ex-Leeds United players, James Milner was really average at best on Tuesday, (for England against the Netherlands) and, before anybody says anything, that’s been pretty much his season with Liverpool as well.

Still, he has an outside chance of going to France (for the Euros) given his abilty to play a few different positions and being a Roy Hodgson (England manager) favourite.

To balance things out, Ross Barkley showed the limitations of his game as well.

McQueen’s view is a valid one

Gordon McQueen and Joe Jordan left Leeds United 40 years ago; some forget they both contributed massively to our great history and achieved more than most of the dross we’ve seen since.

So what if they moved to the dark side of the Pennines – Johnny Giles and Gordon Strachan did the reverse, but are rightly lauded as all-time greats.

McQueen (commenting on Scottish player eligibility through grandparentage in the YEP) is entitled to his opinion same as other ex-Leeds players which, I for one, think is spot on.
