Oh Captain! My Captain! Your fateful time has come, Our ship has weathered many storms, and this could be our last one. The drop is near, headlines I hear, our fans are all exhausted. With tired eyes and buckling knees, our vessel needs to be sorted.
You may realise the form of this poem which is taken from poet Walt Whitman. This tells the tale of a ship coming to the end of its journey, whilst their captain lays lifeless on the deck.
Unfortunately for our fans, our captain never gets to see the harbour, he's already set sail with another prosperous club wiping his brow from escaping from a sinking giant.
The simple repetition of Lufc flogging their captain every single time we get one is becoming absurd now. Why appoint a leader of men just to kick him out of the club within 6 months? It just doesn't make sense and it's making a mockery of our club.
Ross, Howson, Becchio, Snodgrass and now our most recent stand out player and captain Warnock, is leaving LS11 and can you blame him? No!
The poisoned chalice is in full effect at Leeds United and the rot on the table is just as clear. I hope Redfearn is nothing to do with this and is trying to point out to Cellino that he's making the single biggest mistake since he took over.
With over 50 interceptions in the Championship it shows he's saved our skin on plenty of occasions and is by far one of the top 5 players this season. But it's his off field attributes that help our young squad. Not only is he a perfect tutor for the inexperienced Charlie Taylor, but he is also our most experienced player and without him our squad looks very bleak on Championship appearances.
Overall, when this transfer does eventually go through, all Cellino will gain is some extra money from the wages we'd have paid him and a hell of a lot of grief and for me he deserves it!
Thanks for the contribution Stevo! You were a diamond in the rough but you were the only diamond that worked for our side!
We March On, but to where?
