Bookies have Leeds to currently finish around 15th or 16th in EPL

For me from here on in with our small squad LUCK ( or bad luck) with injuries to key players will be THE DECISIVE FACTOR in determining much of where we finish in the league this season

We simply cannot rely on extensive squad strength because thanks to MB it doesn't really exist

I now predict Leeds finish 16th or 17th, if we start to have good luck and no more injuries to key players for most of the remainder of the season its feasible we might still finish as high as 12th or 13th.

Agree0 Disagree0

Luck is a factor to a certain extent. Eg double deflection for West Ham equaliser. Another factor is decisions. Doubt us getting a penalty or opponent red all season.

yep Whitesee indeed.

I'd take 15th or 16th right now for sure.

I’m on the same page Baz. But like you say, ish, we should not be relying luck, and the squad really does need greater depth.

Indeed Brighty
Had been hoping for a successful, enjoyable, ( relatively) stress free season.

This is exactly what myself and other posters were saying in summer and were lambasted for it and told we were 100% wrong. We needed to strengthen and the board made bad and hopelessly naive decisions.

Baz ii think what you really must allow for is that although the club spent 50 Mil in the summer, two of those being Firpo and James, there was probably no more money to spend. I think O’Brian would have been reasonable cover in midfield and a at 11 Mil perhaps not so expensive, but it looks like the money was simply not available. I know everyone goes on about strengthening the squad and I do agree but we are an evolving club and the money I’m sure will come. When buying players you need to acquire ones that are at least the same or better than what you’ve got. That costs a lot of money which I believe Radz doesn’t have just yet.
I believe you and others are stressing out too soon, luck does play a very big part in football and we have had a large slice of misfortune with injuries over the last two seasons.
Our fortunes will change.

Op if the lolly ain't there, why are we hearing about a 50k stadium? What's he going to build that with Jenga blocks?
Majority of clubs in the league in far worse states yet the money always come through . I would bet that come January if we are in the bottom 5 watch him " find " a few pound then .

Baz Start of season I had us finishing 13th. Can see us strengthening in January.
