    3 key players including 1 youth could walk away from us next year.

    Snoddy, Clayts, Rosco and the youthful Zac Thompson

    Anybody else worried that we may have to sell these 4 in the summer? Our track record aint great!

    all will be sold. We'll be told it was "good business for the club" and then no one of any quality will be brought in.

    It follows that it's **** or bust this season as far as promotion is concerned. Win promotion and we won't miss those players even if they leave as well have the resources to attract premiership players. Fail to win promotion and the prospects are unthinkably bad

    None of it will be the old bearded twats fault though. It'll be cos the player or agent was too greedy and wanted championship wages. Then we'll have to build another half a team again, fail due to all the loans and crap freebies and the latest manager will be fired for failing to win promotion.

    Not that I'm a cynic or anything.......

    we won't be able to afford the wages or fee for anyone anywhere close to the quality of those players and will have to gamble with promising young prospects and trying to find "gems", as for some reason getting rid of those players will only free up **** all in wages.

    High probability (more of a certainty with Bates in charge) that White will be gone in summer. I for one will be devastated that yet another youth player leaves after hardly gaining any benefit from him (unless we go up? nah), another player with pace out of the squad and the dreaded LB issue will return. You can't build a team with Ken in charge which is why i feel incredibly sorry for Grayson.

    Exactly, players like Snodgrass, Clayton, Lees and White should be tied down into 4 year contracts already, Snodgrass should have been given one before the season started. A mystery how we give longer contracts to the likes of Ben Parker who is A useless and B spends more time on the physio couch.

    I dont understand how you can say stuff like that. Parker was a promising young defender who has been unfortunate with injuries. There is no people within leeds united that can read the future, if we gave snoddy or clayton a 4 year contract tommorrow and then the following day they get a year long injury and never return to there previous selves would that be bad management as well???? Make your mind up, either its good or not

    Because I disagree, he has been poor from day one, lacks pace constantly gets beaten and who has never in my eyes shown an ounce of promise.

    Parker hasn't been given a contract since he got injured as far as I'm aware. His last extension was signed slightly before he got injured. I was going to go into a long rant, thinking he'd signed another extension recently but I couldn't find it anywhere.

    It's also a 2 way street, not all players want to be tied down to a long contract (unless they are at a top club) its not just a case of heres a contract sign it.
