At the start of the season, Leeds United made an early case for promotion contenders under Thomas Christiansen.
As the campaign progressed, the wheels began to fall off and in February, the Yorkshire outfit sacked the manager and replaced him with Paul Heckingbottom.
Since the new leader’s arrival, the Whites have picked up just one victory in eight Championship matches.
The problems began before Heckingbottom took charge, though, and it has now been revealed that Leeds are at the bottom of the form table taking into account the last 14 fixtures.

Leeds’ hopes of challenging for Premier League promotion have all but disappeared as they reside 14th in the standings, 12 points adrift of the playoff places.
Since Boxing Day, the Yorkshire outfit have suffered eight league defeats and during that spell they have conceded 26 goals.
On Saturday, the pain continued as the team were beaten 2-1 by Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road.
As expected, fans have been left dismayed by the form table.
i am not one to run down the club, but this is simply outrageous, whatever is wrong needs fixed.

The only people that need tagging are the players. Disgraceful

Lol, we are worst than Sunderland and our owner recently said we had a squad capable of being top 6. Just goes to show how deluded/incompetent he really must be. We’ve got to be early contenders for relegation in 18/19 season… surely…

League one beckons if we don’t have a Very productive summer, and that’s putting it mildly! 😬😳😱

The summer needs to be ruthless… sack PH, sack Orta. Bring in a top manager and give him the money to spend on his players. In hindsight Monk left because Orta was coming in and he was going to be 'GIVEN' players.. well, it just don't work does it Andre!!

Time for some stern questions to the ownership Phil – this is going to have lasting damage on the club into next season
