I'm afraid in my eyes having a small minded board like we have was possibly the swaying factor in their decision. Not only that Leeds area huge club - not that good a team at the moment but thats their problem not ours. I'm for the Wisey/Macari type of manager, no p***y footing around, if the players rubbish he's told so, likewise praised when good. Also in this league its not a 'pretty pretty ' type of football. There's quite a few names being banded about, hopefully the board can get the one the they what, as too be fair we have had some good ones here, that have gone on to other clubs.
