Lewis Cook and Charlie Taylor will be gone (from Elland Road) in the summer, to be replaced by more promising Academy graduates, who, in turn, will be gone as soon as a decent offer comes in for them.

And who can blame them?

We’ve become a feeder club, devoid of any real ambition, treading water for the foreseeable future.

Doesn’t anyone see the potential of LUFC?

Tiring of all the embarrassment

I’ve just read that Bournemouth want to swap Lee Tomlin for Lewis Cook.

It sounds like a move that Leeds couldn’t refuse.

We get some ‘washed up’ midfielder that can’t get a game and they get probably one of our most talented players.

You could not make it up.

It would be funny if it was not so serious.

If there is any money on top of the swap coming Massimo Cellino’s way, he will probably snatch their arm off.

Leeds is now a feeder club for the likes of Bournemouth.

No disrespect to Bournemouth, but if this is true I hope the club goes bust because I am tired of the embarrassment.

Time for striker we can bank on

We are nearing the third week of January, and as soon as the money for Sam Byram lands in the LUFC bank account, we need to somehow get hold of a genuinely good striker.

He must know he his joining a team that needs around three more wins to at least get us to a point of safety.

That has to be the main priority now; no point having inquests into what’s gone on, we need to have our eyes wide open to the fact we have dropped to a position in the league which is worrying.

I am praying we can almost look at Bolton and Charlton as gone (being optimistic!). To me, Rotherham look the next most likely to go.

But teams like Huddersfield, who whilst losing in the cup when reduced to 10 men, do look like they are slowly turning the corner and have players who score goals, and Bristol City, who beat Boro on Saturday, may see themselves with a chance of getting something this Saturday. This game is now a ‘mustwin’ for us; a draw just pulls us into dangerous territory.

Also, Fulham are in there, and are more unpredicatable than Leeds.

Bt of a ramble, but the main point is, get us safe first. Win on Saturday, we move to a safer place, and put Bristol further into the relegation mix.
