Why have we heard so little from KS and GH over the shocking state our club is in? GH was writing letters to fans before now in previous terrible seasons.

Perhaps they don’t know how to stop the rot?
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Sinfield said something a week or so ago. I'm sort of glad we're not hearing too many interviews with players about hurting, dark places and the like.

He did, but that was one isolated article in 10 rounds so far. I don’t want to hear about how bad the players feel either. I want to hear what we are doing about gristly recognising the problems we have and then what we are going to do about fixing them.

The lack of communication with what is effectively a customer base isn’t good news.

What do you want him to say

"look, we know we've got a load of average players but were stuck with them until the end of the season" - I would suggest that's not the best way to motivate the team to keep us from going down.

I don't give a monkeys about some PR from the club I want them to get on with the job of getting us further up the table.

GH&KS have to take some blame for this mess.
The players are supposed to be professional for gods sake but over half of the first team squad are substandard.What are the new back room staff doing?,they should have lard a**e Lolohia working on a farm with a fridge strapped to his back..Seriously it's very sad,the club in debt,poor players with a bad attitude and a empty new stadium(maybe) next season

I don’t see PR and better results as mutually exclusive. For example, if he were to say something along the lines of “we know the current squad lacks some of the quality that we would like to see at Leeds such that we can regularly challenge for honours, and the rest of this season is an opportunity for all the current playing squad to show the management and fans that they should be part of our future. Additionally we continue to search for the right quality people and players to join our journey and enhance the playing squad for next season and beyond. We hope to make some exciting announcements about high quality additions in the next month or two.”

That gives people some comfort that we’re not just staring into the bottom of our whisky glasses wondering what to do about it on the cheap, and tells the players if they pull their fingers out of their butts they can be part of the future.

Your panicking to early, there’s nowt won in March/April. Myler your organiser who gets a lot of unnecessary flack, was missing last night, consequently you were rudderless, half a dozen old boys waiting to exact revenge, a perfect storm, with Garbut and Mulhearn waiting for you, why not try Golding full back, and Walker at six. Loads of average teams this year us included.

I wouldn’t describe you as average, if you can keep McGuire and Garbut fit ,along with hall you might surprise a few people this year.
