Am I about to scale the peak of bitterness?

What a SHITTY SHITTY Saturday night. Awful. Bitter and awful. Anger and despair.


Yes, its Leeds I'm talking about again.


A highly controversial sending off for Alan Thompson on 38 minutes stuffed up any chance we had of winning. Wise then sacrificed Blake for the defensive Foxe - and defending became the order of the day. We defended magnificently until the bitter 84th minute and Bradley Wright Phillips broke thousands of collective hearts across the globe.
.
.
It wouldn't have been quite so bad had all the other results not been so goddamn shitty and awful for Leeds. A 90th minute equaliser from Hull against Stoke, and a last minute winner for Leicester against Preston made it a dark, dark day for Leeds Utd.
.
.
Yet again with 10 minutes to go, results were going our way only for the true agony of last minute goals to come our way again. Following those last few minutes live on the Internet truly made me want to smash every computer and tv across the country.
.
.
2 games left, and it is still possible to survive. I rate it at about 15%. We need the marriage of Harry Houdini and Lazarus to achieve that goal. We could conceivably get relegated this weekend. If Hull beat Cardiff and we fail to beat Ipswich - then we are gone. If we win, and Hull don't then we grab back the initiative. Unfortunately now Barnsley and Leicester are 5 points ahead of us. The only chance we have of overtaking one of them is to win this weekend and put us two or three points behind one of these teams (given the fact they will be playing each other) going into the last game.
.
.
If this weekend sees wins for Leeds, Leicester and Cardiff, then, and only then, will I get some belief back.
.
.
This weeks home match is the biggest in our 87 year history. And should we not be relegated in this game then the last match against Derby will take over this position.
.
.
Bitterness, depths of despair...surely someone somewhere can shine a light at the end of the tunnel???

Micky Gray's loan deal is confirmed till the end of the season!!

Unfortunately Micky Gray was injured for the Southampton game. When fit he's probably the best left back in the division. He's possibly our (and I use that word in the loose sense) best left back since Tony Dorigo. Ian Harte may have had the free kick panache, but in terms of the marauding defensive power - Micky Gray is great.

Plus he's a crowd favourite at Leeds for the passion he shows for the cause despite only being on loan. He's been here on a loan contract once before. He gets right into it, and runs up to the crowd madly excited whenever Leeds score.

If the whole team had the passion of Micky Gray perhaps we wouldn't be in this frickin mess.
