After an inconsistent 2014-15 domestic campaign, Leeds United will target a significant improvement this season. The Whites recently appointed former Wigan Athletic boss Uwe Rosler as head coach and he will look to invest astutely in the transfer window to improve the squad. Leeds finished 15th in the Championship last season – a disappointing position considering the talent that The Peacocks possess in their ranks.

We take a look at the upcoming season and give our thoughts on Leeds’ chances of finishing in the division’s top six and therefore, earning a spot in the playoffs at the end of the campaign. For more odds and news regarding Leeds United, or the Championship in general, check out website.

Uwe-RoslerOne of the main reasons for Leeds United’s struggles in the past few years has been the lack of continuity at the club – both on and off the field. Since Simon Grayson left the club, Leeds have chopped and changed managers on a regular basis, and Rosler is the fifth head coach in the last year. They have talented footballers, but their managers have struggled to get the best out of them in recent times – which have contributed significantly to their fall down the Championship table.

Uwe Rosler will be looking for his side to show an immediate improvement at the start of the season and will hope that the Whites can get off to a good start and build some confidence. With the likes of Billy Sharp, Steve Morrison and Charlie Taylor in their ranks, Leeds obtain a mixture of experience, talent and passion – all of which are traits needed to succeed in the Championship. Their veteran players can help the younger professionals to advance and improve, as well as offering friendly advice on the training ground.

Ultimately, their schedule will play a huge role in their chances this year. The Championship is one of the hardest leagues in Europe and, at the start of the season, all 24 teams are in with a chance of winning the title – such is the competitive nature of England’s second division. Leeds are certainly in with a chance of reaching the playoffs next season and, with a bit of luck, Rosler can steer the Peacocks into the top six.
