Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson has suggested his old side aren't ready to move on and progress.

Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson told talkSPORT that he doesn’t feel his old club are in a position to progress and move forward at the moment.

However, he did suggest that Leeds are unique in the respect of the support they enjoy, as arguably the biggest club outside of the Premier League.

The club’s immense support base is very significant, especially considering the young and developing team that Leeds have.

“Not with the way things are at the moment – First game of the season, they had 27,000 there – Everyone talks about big football clubs, but they really are a big football club, not just here but worldwide – Those supporters deserve more,” he told talkSPORT.

Can Leeds get into the top six?

We’re only two games into the Championship season and Leeds are still searching for their first win under Rosler.

However, it’s far too early to be able to judge Leeds and there is still every reason to believe that they can do well this season.

Leeds have the extra youth players, which increases the size of the squad and the infrastructure to be able to maintain a top six challenge.

The issue for Rosler is going to be how the side copes when they lose an extremely valuable player in a key position, which forces someone else to come in and fill the void.

If the team can make it through those periods where players are unavailable and be consistent in terms of performances and results, they have every chance of being able to prove Robinson wrong.
