The 2016 Championship table is very grim reading for Leeds United fans

Only one team has performed worse than Leeds since the turn of the year.

Since the turn of the year, Leeds United have done as badly as Brentford, worse than Rotherham and worse than Bolton Wanderers.

In fact, they've done worse than every other Championship team except for Charlton Athletic. In nine league games, United have won just once, taking seven points from a possible 27 thanks to four other draws and four defeats.

Leeds just don't score goals and their 4-0 defeat at Brighton on Monday night shows all is not right in defence at Elland Road, either.

Based on recent form, Leeds are second bottom in the Championship and a dead cert for relegation if those sort of performances were replicated all campaign long.

No matter how much Leeds struggled last season - or even under Uwe Rosler - things were never this bad. United brought in Toumani Diagouraga and Mustapha Carayol in January (and Liam Bridcutt a few weeks prior) but only seem to have regressed.

So who's going to come in and sort out Leeds' latest mess?
