Yes - those above them will cobble enough wins together.

Im so disappointed about this pandemic......now that we Leeds are back in the big time after so long.....I was hoping to take my daughter to every home game this season!

I named my daughter Ella-Rose .......obviously after Elland Road!

I feel so sorry for all the football clubs in League 1 and League 2........they make 90% of their revenue through season tickets etc!

Llorente has looked accomplished today, although Leeds have looked flat against Villa. Klich quite poor and not sure what Tyler Roberts brings. Hernandez surely better option to start.

Leeds able to 0-0 chelsea at home shows they have some defensive chops. looks like 2nd seasonitis could be a thing unless they recruit better than sheff utd.

They need some upgrades e.g. more players of Raphinha's quality but in other positions so that Alioski, Klich etc become reliable back up players.

Leeds, like Sheff U this season, will find season 2 a lot more difficult. Sheff U did as leeds are this year last season. But next ? I'm sure your manager who seems reluctant to learn English knows he has to strengthen.
By the way - applause applause to Leeds for their t shirt thing v Liverpool. You speak for us all, as did Everton

I think Leeds will kick on next season. Hopefully, with fans in next season they will be much better at home. I think there are also plans to upgrade the stadium. They do seem to have a great backroom team as well and yes I would like to see Bielsa learn English.

Leeds strengthened better than Sheff Utd did in their respective first seasons in my opinion. Sheff Utd brought in no-one comparable to Raphinha's quality, for example. If Robin Koch is comparable in ability to Llorente, and Bielsa and his backroom team continue to identify players of last summer's quality then I can only see Leeds getting better.

Surprised that no-one has posted on this thread for over a year.

Leeds needing a miracle.

Even more so as Everton will beat us !

They’ll probably say the last manager who was much loved would have kept them up.

I would have stuck with the manager. Despite all the goals they were conceding I think they made a mistake getting rid.

He had a soft start playing us and Norwich but now the same old issues are coming home to roost.

Doesn’t look good for Leeds. Although Burnley have spurs away and arsenal have Everton at home so they might get a favour or two there.

Brighton (h) and Brentford (a).

I think the Brighton game is a must-win and that is a massive ask.

Getting thrashed 0-3 at home at this stage of the season is a bad omen for relegation. I'd say yes.

Will Eddie Howe want to send his old team down and help Leeds too?

Won't matter because Leeds will beat Brentford thanks to Pontus jansson mysteriously slipping on dry ground next Sunday

Whether or not Leeds stay up I'd be replacing Marsch this summer. Get Sean Dyche or Carlos Corberan in.

It's not a cheap option if they go down! Not sure he's done anything to show he'd be the man to get them back up. Lasted about 5 minutes at Leipzig. How long is his contract?

Surely if you sack Bielsa when they did you should be getting someone proven in the Premier League in.

Haven’t Leeds got some sort of American investment which might have had a say?

We tried that PL experience approach twice but failed miserably.

Maybe that was because our squad was basically pretty rubbish !

I personally think you should have stuck with the PL experience approach, third time lucky and all that ;)

Marsch was appointed on the basis our new American owners due to finalise in the next 2 seasons who own the sanfrancisco 49ers wanted an American coach

That's the rumour anyway but it's massively backfired potentially

Not sure, but 3 years rings a bell.
