The last few months have been frustrating as we approached a new era, I admit that I had the hump at the end of the season, as yet another campaign fizzled out, but I feel kinda optimistic, and kind of hopeful. Looking back when Neil Warnock was appointed I thought yes, (never liked the man his teams always seemed to win against us) but I thought we had a chance of promotion. Brian McDermott did n’t come over as the most passionate of manager, but he grew on me, got Ross playing and with a bit of money I thought we would at least make the play-offs. The signings of Kebe and Stewart did n’t help!
Then nothing, no news, no players and no manager. We seemed to be a laughing-stock.
Now it has started.
We have signed 3 or 4, and more to come, the quality of which is to be decided, and looking at how our owner operates I guess if they don’t produce then there will be replacements. I don’t blame him for shopping where he knows best, and we got good money for McCormack. So positive start Mr President, would just like to see some proven quality, not lads passed their sell by date, or unproven possibles, as with most clubs we are going to need a 20 goal tally from one or more if we are to push upwards.
Dave Hockaday, still not sure how he got the job, but good luck to him, if he succeeds then we succeed. I’ve not seen many try to fail, and I think he’s going to need as much support as we can give him.
No, I’ve gone from doom and gloom, now is the time to be positive, I feel at least we have an owner with money and some knowledge, someone with passion, and the club at heart. I hope that we are competitive and if we can add a bit of quality who knows where we will be.
Yes optimism is returning, come on Leeds….
