A lot of talk that McLaren is being considered for the vacancy. Apparently he was at the match on Saturday in the Directors Box. Would not be my choice. I note that Leeds are now looking for their seventh manager since 2014. Surely whoever comes in must be given some time to try and impose their own style of play / ideas on the team? This constant chopping and changing must surely in itself be linked to the problems it is designed to address.

Maybe O Neill regrets signing the contract now unless he has a get out clause?

Looks like Paul Heckingbottom is the man. Hardly pulling up trees at Barnsley with 1 win in 16, 6 wins all season. Currently 21st place. Hardly the inspirational character needed.
That was never a square ball!!

Rufus, Stumpy and young Geraghty should be co managers with Big Beasel as the assistant, they might not win many games but by God they will fight like fack for the jersey. )
Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

Neil Lennon for me, I think he is an excellent manager.

Tactical acumen might be in short supply Stew! 😀

Paul Heckingbottom is finding out quickly how frustrating a club Leeds can be. He has definitely steadied the ship since coming in and could easily have nine points from his first three games. However, a dodgy penalty when Leeds were in full control against Sheffield United was followed by a 2-2 draw at home to Sheffield United when three clear cut chances were missed late on. Then Leeds led twice away to Derby only to concede in the third minute of injury time for another draw. Effectively dropping seven points which were there for the taking has left Leeds with only the most remote prospect of a run towards the play-offs and a 15th consecutive seasons outside the Premiership beckons. Hopefully he will be given the time and the resources to have a proper crack at the job.
