Okay, so, I lied, the majority of the game on Saturday was dull. I decided dead against writing a full on report about it, mainly because I have said it all before and I feel like I’m repeating myself.
We painted it white and played like shite. That’s kind of what happened in a nutshell. (If by any chance you do want to read the match report, you can view it here: http://www.leedsunited.com/news/20130316/united-beaten-at-home_2247585_3110062 )
I guess you can say the Play Offs are a lot more un-realistic now, we’d pretty much have to win every game and hope those above us, all made a habit of losing. Though I feel if we were to bring a new manager in….Maybe we could turn it round, maybe it could still be done but we’d have to look at doing it before Ipswich.
There is nothing more Neil Warnock can do with this team, its not working and things will never change while he is in charge but if by any chance we did manage to bring someone in, I think I would still cling to the hope that we could potentially make the play offs, stranger things have happened!!
Overnight odds on Nigel Adkins becoming the new manager plummeted and he became 4/11 favourite to replace Neil Warnock. As it stands right now, Adkins is 11/8.
Adkins is in high demand though, and we’d have to fight off competition from Reading and Leicester if we were to employ Southampton’s former gaffer.
Adkins is my preferred choice, but he isn’t everyone’s and I have been reading on Twitter, people would rather have Brian McDermott who was sacked from Reading not long ago. Leave a comment below and let us know who you would like to see manage Leeds United and why.
Both Ross McCormack and Steve Morison were sidelined due to injuries at the weekend, those injuries mean they can’t play for either of their international teams this weekend either. Hopefully the break does them good.
Good luck to Tom Lees, Aiden White, Paul Green and Rodolph Austin who are all away on international duty this week too.
