Football season upon us once more...

And it seems that Leeds Utd continue to struggle to put in good performances, they won the first game (on Saturday) 1-0 although from the report, it seems that Norwich were much the better.

And tonight, despite leading twice against what is suposedly a weak QPR team - and dominating possession for long spells, QPR stormed back to equalise in the 2nd minute of stoppage time.

Whilst it's not a bad start (4pts out of a possible 6) Leeds won't get anywhere near automatic qualification until they start tonking these kind of teams on a regular basis - I'm not sure what the problem is, but the team never seems really up for it or confident and that might be down to the manager, whom perhaps unfairly gets a lot of flack due to the level of expectation of the fans.

Still, the club has come a long way in a short time since it's fall from grace a few years back and I for one am glad we failed to get promotion in May, since we'd have struggled in the premier league and a season of hammerings would have done us more harm than good.
