    Wrexham if they're playing Nuneaton this weekend. I have a real soft spot for Wrexham.

    Wrexham, I'm not sure what it is about the Conference but teams can do bagly (or well) one year and do very well (or badly) the next. Like Newport came 19th in the 2011-12 season and then got promoted the next. Mad.
    At one point I was genuinely considering the prospect of derbies with Nuneaton in League 2 next season. Shame that Andy Morrell didn't work out as manager at Wrexham, always worked hard in a City shirt.

    Yeah I know, it's just one of those things where it's better to part ways but in all fairness to him, he did very well in the last season, FA Trophy winners and final of the play offs.

    Is there any appetite at Wrexham to go into the Welsh league system?

    Not particularly, it's a lot more competitive and there's more opportunities in the English leagues. I mean I'm all for supporting the Welsh league system but I don't think it would benefit Wrexham to go into it.

    8 points from relegation zone. Still have Blackpool, Barnsley, Forest, Birmingham & Derby to play.

    Need to get 2 wins, confirm safety. Write this season off, get rid of the deadweight uncommitted players in the Summer, Give McDermott some cash, rebuild. Fight for promotion.

    Cellino supposedly overheard at VR last night calling McDermott a clown, then turned to Watford fans and said how jealous he is of Watford having Sannino. Was posted on a Watford forum so not sure how true it is, but sounds like BMD's a dead man walking.

    Seems to be mixed reactions about Cellino's attitude to McDermott. In an interview with BBC Look North, he said he likes Brian & would like to see him fulfill his contract.

    Leeds have debts of £30mil, the Board of Directors decided to award themselves a 140% pay rise. Yes, 140%. I didn't accidentally leave out a decimal point. They now get over £800,000 a year each. That is complete robbery of the fans. We keep getting our lowest attendance for the season every week. It was only 17,500 against Charlton.

    We're all fed up & just want the season to end.

    Apologies if this has already been discussed and I missed it, but what does everyone make about the 7 players arrested / questioned for spot fixing? http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-lancashire-26887860
    From a York point of view, it's a real beep that Ben Davies is involved. Class player with a great future - I'd hope it's a case of mistaken identity / just trying to eliminate him from their suspects - to get involved with something like that at his age with a good career ahead of him is just utterly stupid

    How much surgery would it take to turn Leeds into promotion contenders?

    I can only think of about 4 first team players worth keeping. We need a complete overhaul.

    That being the case it looks like it'll take a bit more than a magic wand from Cellino to get things going well in the long term. He will at least have the ability to release expensive players from their contracts early although wouldn't bank on an immediate turnaround.

    He said that if Leeds aren't in the Premier League in 2 years then he'll deem himself a failure. He had 32 managers in 20 years at Calgari.

    Really crap European football. I'm pretty sure I'd rather be in the English league system and watch us play relatively good teams every week than watch us play village teams and pub teams from across Wales. The quality must be abysmal. The reward is just a trip to Latvia to watch a turgid 0-0 draw with Metalurgs Riga... maybe you get through in the home leg and then get battered by the giants that are Olimpija Ljubliana of Slovenia. Sounds dreadful to me!

    Well you've pretty much got a guaranteed win against us as we have forgotten how to play football so I wouldn't worry too much.

    Blackpool seem to be sinking so you've definitely got a good chance there. Barnsley are if anything possibly even worse than us.

    So I wouldn't say you had anything to worry about at all.

    Paul Fletcher became Coventry chairman some time in early 2006. Boldly announcing 'Operation Premiership', he vowed that if we hadn't been promoted after 3 years, he would resign.

    He resigned after 2.

    His record at Cagliari can probably say enough about McDermotts future... My only disappointment from last night's game is no one broke that ******** Poleon's legs.
