Sometime in every manager's season they know that they will board the bus home knowing that three points should be onboard with them, but alas Burnley after near misses last year finally claimed three points against Leeds with a late Charlie Austin goal. Even though the performance merited a share of the spoils.
The defeat dropped Leeds into the bottom half of the Championship and the hopes fans had are starting to fade. Maybe I'm overreacting but I believe he problems with the financial side has seriously hampered the manager in his duties. I believe that Neil Warnock should confront his paymasters and give them a deadline of no more than two weeks or else he will indeed go and drive around on his tractor. He would in my opinion have the fans support if his actions were as severe as I'm saying.
This season is becoming so disappointing with only the cup run giving some comfort to the fans and as the attendances are showing the fans are voting with their feet. I don't expect anywhere near 20k on
Next up is Watford, with Gianfranco Zola and his Italian imports who come to Leeds 11 with twenty points and sit a place below us in the league but have had some good results previously and their latest fixture a 1-0 victory v lowly Peterborough. Without doubt we need a win to restore some confidence in the team and the supporters and also need to attack from the first minute but I'd be happy with a scrappy 1-0 at the moment.
Neil Warnock hinted at changes at his press conference, so the likes of Ryan Hall (who scored 4 goals in a development game midweek), Paul Green and David Norris could come in.
But without doubt the message is clear from all, sort out the business side now before it's too late.
Leeds 1 Watford 0 Becchio
