That Was Not a Slip-Up!


Is a draw at Leeds a good result?

Some would say yes considering we were seconds away from defeat.

Others would say no pointing out we`ve slipped even further behind the top two of Southampton and Reading in the race for automatic promotion.

Big Sam though reckons it wasn`t a slip up remarking post match,

“This wasn`t a slip up as far as I`m concerned – we`ve had those at home by drawing too many games just lately.”

“That`s disappointing. And it`s true that too many draws have made us a bit edgy. But we are still confident we can take that final step and win promotion. It`s still in our hands.”

I`m glad you`re confident Sam, I`m starting to panic!

LUFC Warnock – It was like walking into a bullring

Leeds United boss likened the atmosphere of that of a bullring after seeing the biggest crowd of the season inside Elland Road for the game with West Ham.

Warnock has been asking for the fans to turn out in numbers since his arrival, wanting to see a crowd of 30,000 inside Elland Road.

33,366 attended the game with West Ham, the first club to sell out their allocation since away fans moved into the West stand.

Warnock thought it was a fantastic atmosphere and he likened it to walking out into a bullring. Speaking on LUTV, Warnock said, “I asked for 30,000 and we got more than that. West Ham played their part brining their quota.

“It was just a fantastic atmosphere. It was almost like walking into a bullring, it was an amphitheatre.”

Warnock was left disappointed after seeing Leeds drop two crucial points in the final minute as they try to make a late push for the play-offs and he was disappointed that the fans could not go home completely happy. “It was a fantastic atmosphere being on the bench and everyone should be going home really happy,” added Warnock.

Leeds are back in action at Elland Road on Tuesday night when they face Nottingham Forest.
