Oh goody a poll :D
Closer to the play offs this year but we need some more signings to have any chance of getting higher.
Owners come and go but Leeds United will be there forever, for the fans - keep Marching on Together.

As the squad stands l'd say about 10th, but if 2 new decent players were added I think a play off push could be squeezed out of them

Difficult to answer can't really comment on the new signings however my gut is that murphey will add to the squad hunt and smith may not. Versus Last years full seasons team we swapped McDermott for warnock ( like for like in terms of track record?)& we have added warnock and lost bechio. Sadly without bechios goals we would have been relegated! I thought we were unlucky post Xmas and lucky prior to Xmas as bechio got us out of jail with a goal or two. With the squad as it is mid table at best. We need the same 3 signings we have needed for a year to be in contention, without them we could be closer to relegation - it's that tight.

Ever the optimist, I'm going for play-offs. Not the way I want us to get to the Premiership but as long as we're there. Fear is, we have a crap record when it comes to play-offs. Not this team you could argue I suppose but just in general. The expectation is always so great.... :think:

With the addittions we currently have, I cant see us finishing above 12th place. Our back four is no better than last season, our forward line is arguably worse(minus Becchio) but we have a better manager. Lets hope for some pace down the flanks and a commanding CB prior to kick off.

As it stands today, i think Leeds will finish closer to going down than up.

The choice I wanted wasn't there. I think better than last season but not play-offs. I'd love us to go up this year or even make the play-offs but we haven't made wholesale changes in the team. However a better manager and hopefully larger crowd will mean a step-up in performances.

The transfer window has, so far, been underwhelming. At best, it has improved the squad by 5%. I think that BMcD can get more out of the squad, say 10%. I hope that a 15% improvement can squeeze us into the play-offs but I am not having a bet.
