    Get a very small dog mate, and over it in tin foil and place it on top off your tree.

    Now I haven't bought a star yet so that could save me a few quid.

    Lost top spot after losing today, only 6 point gap now to 3rd. Will choke again, the Bielsa way

    They desperately need to bring in a goal scorer now the young lad has gone back to Arsenal.

    Bamford won’t score enough goals to get them up.

    Their owners are gimps imo.

    You can pretty much set a watch to a Bielsa team falling apart in the second half of a season. Maybe this year will break the trend but at virtually every club he's been at the team completely ****s up in the last 10-15 games

    Yup same old **** with them.

    One of my best mates is a Leeds fan and he is going ballistic.
    Bamford is so ****ing wasteful in front of goal, needs 10 attempts to put one away.
    They need to sign a goalscorer or I fear they will **** this up again.

    What's to fear??

    I hope they do **** it up, they're a bunch of utter morons. Would be hilarious.

    That's the politest description I can come up with.

    Wrong choice of words :p
    As Chelsea and Man Utd fans respectively, we are supposed to despise Leeds, of course
    My dad hated them more than any other club, and I cannot say that I haven't enjoyed seeing them struggle, this past 15 years. :D

    They are deluded ****s. How long have they been out the top division now let alone competing in it? There’s a growing conspiracy theory that the refs are against them as the FL want to keep them down for the revenue they generate. Nothing to do with Bielsa flogging a small squad to death in a 46 game season.

    haha conspiracies! Gotta love em.

    Still though, gotta make you wonder what would happen if he got Leeds to the PL, where there are less games!

    Anyway, I still think Leeds and West Brom are both going up in the automatic places.

    Not sure there mate, West Brom definitely are, despite last night, but Brentford are very, very good.

    Reckon they and Fulham will push Leeds for 2nd.

    Hope so!

    Leeds need to bring in at least one striker and probably 2, to ensure their promotion.

    Given the size of the fiscal prize this should be a no brainer, but I don’t think the owner has the cash to back up his ambition.

    If they don’t bring in the goalscorer they need, then they could well blow it again, and Bielsa will do one, which could leave them marooned for another extended period.

    I can’t see Leeds not getting caught. They have no one to come off the bench and are pretty much getting by with just the first choice eleven. Phillips now suspended for three games too and they still have to go to Brentford.

    There was talk of them signing Dwight Gayle, who is proven at Championship level, grabbed 20 odd goals for West Brom last season when he was on loan there.
    He would be a decent signing for them

    Personally I think they should bring in Billy Sharp and AN other, Gayle might be a decent shout. Sharp could do off the bench what Austin has done for WBA.

    Yeah, Apparently Che Adams is one of their targets too, maybe on a loan deal, he has been **** for Southampton this season, yet to score a single goal, after grabbing 22 goals last season for Birmingham in the championship.

    I would quite like to see Brentford in the PL, I want a club that has never been in the PL before to come up

    Brentford have been boss this season. Ollie Watkins looks a real quality striker to me. Fulham could also push them close in the run in. The pressure is all on Leeds.
