Many fans will have woke. up this morning and looked in their brew this morning searching for answers on why the wheels have fallen off the bus on Leeds' run to what looked like a certain place in the top six.
I know it's not over until the large lady sings, but she's warming up her throat already. A lot of things need to happen for this season to deliver what it had promised since November.
If I may I will put my case on why it seems to have gone Pete Tong;
1. Strength in depth
The most important reason is that if you look at most of the teams challenging, Leeds' squad is small compared to most and the reluctance of the co-owners to invest in January has in my opinion come back to bite the team in the arse.
I'd like to put a little 'meat' into my argument too, around the time the window opened we'd just beaten Preston North End away, without Chris Wood who was out injured but still a few negative murmurs were coming out of the club. In one Massimo Cellino said the squad was too big and advised his co-owner Andrea Radrizzani to keep his euros or pounds in his wallet.
Big mistake boys, as we have found in April the squad is 'treading water' and a few, in some games look to be honest, knackered.
I don't like to single out player's but can anybody tell me one contribution that Mo Barrow has done since his arrival from Swansea on loan?
At least Alfonso Pedraza on occasions has shown he has the ability to score a goal and go past a player or two, signing Barrow came out of desperation from the owners not the Head Coach.
2. Sutton United FA Cup
There are times in a Head Coaches tenure at clubs when with the best possible intentions you get it totally wrong.
I'm sure Garry Monk thought he'd pick a decent team to beat their Non League opponents but the one's left out may not have been so impressed, a live TV game with a chance to show football what they could do.
The performances straight after that showed a 'chink' in the armour and maybe morale was affected. I'm not privy to the inner workings of the club but that's how it seemed to me as a supporter.
3. Constant Changes
A can count on my fingers the time Garry Monk keep the same team, even if we'd played well and won the week before, look at most teams that do well and you'll see that their supporters could name their team week-on-week, at Leeds this didn't happen and I'm still not sure Garry Monk knows his best eleven even now.
There is no doubting the ability of the Swedish marauder but two incidents remain within the confines of the Theatre of Everlasting Hope.
On both occasions whatever happened was serious enough to drop the centre half and the way it was kept quiet still needs a little explanation and his agent hasn't helped with constant hawking of the talents of said player around the Premier League. Rumours they may be but it doesn't sit well with fans or colleagues if you might be 'talking the talk, but not walking the walk'.
I hope he stays; maverick or not alongside Bartley he has been immense, but I feel he may always have a little 'baggage' with him.
Barnsley A, Cardiff City H, Brentford A, Wolves H and Burton A. All games that you'd expect at least to get a point from each. We didn't seem to come out of international breaks in the same way as we went into them.
I may be a bit premature, because if Ipswich, Brentford and Sheffield Wednesday do Leeds a favour I may be writing a completely different article, my head made me write this article not my heart.
As it stands I don't see anybody doing that and we've still to beat Norwich City and Wigan Athletic to give us a chance again.
I'm not saying it's been a poor season, because it hasn't. The links developed between team and supporters has been superb and the belief is that this is the start of better times at Leeds United.
We've waited so long for a team that we could aline ourselves with. I'm immensely proud to be a supporter of this team, I just feel that like the team that got so close in 2011, a little bit of money spent on the squad would have been the difference between a good season and a really great season.
