Leeds United Suffering Yet Another Painful Season: What Should They Do To Change Their Mean Fortune?

When Garry Monk shocked Leeds United at the end of last season by resigning from his job, it brought into picture a certain Danish star Thomas Christiansen. Christiansen had guided Apoel Nicosia of Cyprus to the last 16 of the Europa League and to Cypriot first division title last season before taking over at Leeds.

Appointed by Italian owner Andrea Radrizzani himself, Christiansen took the hot seat in Leeds United with the board hoping to see the positive effect of having a foreign manager, in a manner somewhat similar to what David Wagner or Marco Silva has had at Huddersfield and Hull.

Leeds got off to a flying start to their new season. Fast flowing football that was easy on the eye and a defence that since the opening game at Bolton had conceded three goals in eight games meant that Leeds could not have hoped for a better start. The Leeds machine however began to show signs of crack as the league progressed and they now are completely out of order.

Doubts are clouding over the club and the atmosphere at Elland Road right now is grave. Several post-mortem reports of the club’s defeats have speculated about various aspects that the club needs to get right. Here are some of the existing problems the club needs to solve:

Shaky Defence: Leeds United star player Pontus Jansson has not been playing his best game recently. The Swedish centre-back is Leeds’s best player in terms of quality and naturally the team depends a lot in his ability to marshal the backline effectively. Jansson has been in a poor run off form and unless he recovers his game quickly, the entire Leeds defence looks like a ship without a rudder.

Bright Start Is A History Now: Leeds United had a fiery start and talks of them challenging for the Championship began to spread. Things are looking more and more like last season and talks of a promotion back to the Premier League is have long faded. The fast start however did show that they are capable of challenging for the title and they need to buckle up and live up to their potential soon.

Leeds United’s long, proud history makes them a club known universally. It would be great for not only them but for English football should they return to the Premier League next season. No matter who comes in next season, hopefully he tweaks in the little problems that are occurring leading to such unnecessary defeats.
