Leeds United yet again left their fans bitterly disappointed yesterday after a 1-1 draw against Brighton at Elland Road.

Leeds were by far the better team in the first half which is when they scored, however a poor performance in the second half and inability to finish chances cost them dear.

While a lot of the blame can be pointed at certain players, personally I am starting to get a little fed up with manager Kevin Blackwell.


Pack your bags Blackwell and call yourself a taxi out of Leeds!

He puts many players out of position, for example our top striker David Healy is on the wing. He doesn’t seem to make any tactical changes or substitutions until it’s too late (when Brighton equalised) and as Leeds often seem to have poor second halves, I can’t see him motivating the players very well at half time.

I’m full of praise for Blackwell in the way he has built a mid-table Championship team from absolutely nothing. Nearly all the players in the team are either freebies or from the academy and he few players that did cost a fee were all £500k or less initially.

Blackwell also seems a good coach for the players, but he is not, I repeat NOT a decent manager! It is time for him to go and hopefully the new chairman Ken Bates will release this. 1 scrappy win, 1 draw and 1 defeat against “average at best” opposition is NOT good enough and the problems mentioned above are not being addressed.

Step down as manager Blackie, return as head coach or leave to manager another club, but please don’t continue this farce at my football club.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.
