Second bottom

Our only win being against the bottom form team.......

Re: Form table

3rd bottom 10 games, rock bottom 10 aways, 17th 10 homes.
Think this fella would have taken us down given a season and with that thought you have to work dear if he's worth a gamble next year.

Everyone assumes he was doing great with Barnsley before they sold a couple of lads but they were heading down with him, and I bet they prefer having £500k and him gone.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Re: Form table

Barnsley seem to be doing better without him!

Thank God for 'Fortress Elland Road'

F*ck off with your trending and line-of-best-fit

RAG analysis is where it's at smile

Either way.  we're like a pre-pubescent schoolboy - man fat in our undies instead of spraying the fizzy stuff everywhere

Re: Form table

I still can't make my mind up about him to be honest.........the optimist in me wants to thunk he;s just using this season to sort the wheat from the chaff and then kick on next season;  the realist thinks he's a bit of a chancer who can't believe he's been offered the job

Paul Heckingbottom confident he will remain Leeds boss

Paul Heckingbottom says he has "got no reason" to believe his position as Leeds manager is at risk.

Heckingbottom left Barnsley to take over at Leeds in February and, despite winning just two games, said he was "surprised" by speculation linking him with an exit.

The 40-year-old's contract at Elland Road expires at the end of next season.

"Everything has carried on as normal," Heckingbottom said. "In terms of meetings, planning, and discussions for next season, nothing has changed.

"The speculation yesterday surprised everyone at the club, not just me. As far as we're concerned, it's business as usual."

Speaking in a news conference ahead of the trip to Villa Park on Friday, live on Sky Sports Football, Heckingbottom admitted he was concerned about the club's recent form.

Leeds have slipped to 14th in the Sky Bet Championship and are currently 14 points from the play-offs. Heckingbottom described recent results as "frustrating".

"At the minute we're just putting halves of football together," Heckingbottom added. "That's a problem. We've seen big moments in games become catalysts for us losing games, which is another problem.

"We need to put poor decisions by officials or injuries we might sustain to the back of our minds. We can't let those kinds of situations affect us."

Heckingbottom admitted he was not happy with the current squad and plans to make changes in the summer.

"We're not where we want to be, so things have to change," Heckingbottom added. "We have to do a lot of good work to improve the squad. We want it slimmer, less in numbers and higher in quality."

Heckingbottom confirmed Pontus Jansson will miss Friday's game with Aston Villa due to a head injury sustained against Preston on Tuesday.

Heckingbottom said Jansson is likely to recover in time for the game with Barnsley on April 21.

Re: Form table

If he loses two or more of the last three games, he is surely toast?

Also, a squad of about 20 or 21 should be enough? Why do you need a specialist in every position? You may be a specialist left back, for example, but if you aren't playing regularly, how well will you fill in anyway?

Re: Form table

I filed this afore the Villa game. I'm more sure now after the fact.

"Villa home record too good. Another defeat. The Heck knows he’s toast but he won’t get fired till season over. Not great this, is it?"

I can't see how he can stay if the chairman has ambition. Heck's record is truly awful. But there are no obvious messiahs out there either. Very dark days.
