Neil Warnock: Issues rallying call to Leeds players and fans

Ahead of Saturday's home clash with Championship leaders Crystal Palace, Warnock's side are 18th in the table, on a three-match losing streak and without a victory in seven league games.

The manager has stressed the slump must be halted and that his players need to "roll their sleeves up".

But he is optimistic about what lies ahead for Leeds, expressing his hope the news on Wednesday that Bahrain-based investment bank GFH Capital will complete a 100% takeover of the club in December has an immediate and positive impact.

"We can't slip further away and we have to roll our sleeves up," said Warnock - who may hand debuts to loan recruits Alan Tate and Jerome Thomas.

"It's been a good 48 hours for the club, and hopefully everyone will come together on Saturday.

"It has been a frustrating time, but this season can't be written off. We have to hang in there and give it our best shot. As I said on Thursday, we have to move forwards. Together.

"Let's forget everything that's gone on and give it our best shot. I'm hoping it'll be a good atmosphere."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
