And replace him with who Cjay? I'm certainly not sticking up for him...but Radz & Co. would look very foolish for employing an 'out of his depth lower league manager' if they sacked him. Thing is, he should never have been given the job in the first place. I said at the beginning I was surprised at the appointment, but was prepared to give the bloke a chance, but the more I see of him and his 'team' the more despondent I get :(

We were better than most of them in Nice weather, on good pitches. I'm hoping we will get nice weather and go on another decent run late in the season.

Weather doesn't excuse the rubbish Paul has dished out.

We can but hope it improves, Barnsley have without him, unlucky to lose to Cardiff by all accounts.
With him the tykes drew 0-0 with Wolves in January, that blows that theory out of the window

The saddest bit is that when managers were being discussed, Simon Grayson, Steve McClaren, Jaap Stam. Nobody wanted them. . .but all of them have better Championship credentials then Paul Heckingbottom. . . As do Neil Harris, Kevin Blackwell, Gianfranco Zola, Nigel Clough the list goes on of managers who people dont rate or want near our club but whose records are better then the man we have. :(
Dean Smith is my choice, he'd probably say no which in itself as a very sad indictment of us these days

Phil Hay:

Liam Cooper has a dead leg. Needs a scan so he's unlikely to feature at Reading

Kemar Roofe still missing but Andy Lonergan is expected to train tomorrow

Heckingbottom on whether BPF will keep his place against Reading: "Possibly. I thought he was pretty calm in the game.

Heckingbottom: "I knew it was a big job here but you can never understand it properly until you get your feet under the table. That's why you need to come in and assess everything

Heckingbotto, thinks Reading are better than their league position. "They won so many games 1-0 last season and they've not had the rub of the green in the same way."

Heckingbottom says he's enjoyed his time here so far but that he's got plenty of work to do. Says he knew that when he first took over and when Leeds first spoke to him.

On set-pieces, Heckingbottom said it would be solely his call to move to man-marking, despite Gianni Vio setting up a zonal marking system. Says he's not sure he's got the players for man marking at present. #lufc

Asked Heckingbottom if he needs a set-piece specialist. Said they can be useful but equally, he wants to remove "shades of grey" and and complications from the defending

Heckingbottom admitted that his central midfield players have been inconsistent and that area hasn't worked well enough. Thinks they all have the capacity to play well but need to find a reliable level.

Heckingbottom on Hernandez's future: "He's been a real positive light. With his contract situation, it's something we want to make sure we get right and we want to give Pablo every opportunity to perform. The priority is keeping him fit, then we'll see what happens."

On Tom Pearce, United's young left-back, Heckingbottom said he was someone he enquired about when he was manager at Barnsley. "He's got attributes which are really good. He's got a chance."

Tom Pearce about to start then

Most of that seems reasonable apart for maybe the set piece question. Reading are better than their position it's probably just Stams negative football

Considering new managers usually have a honeymoon period this is even more poor than it looks. More importantly we look worse as a team with less bottle and no plan

Can't see it making any difference to be honest

Which decent or available manager is gonna come to Leeds ?

Then there is our questionable squad, probably the worst I've witnessed in a long time

The players need to take a long hard look at themselves as well. They're footballers. They should be able to tackle, dribble, shoot, cross etc etc. Last night it looked as though they had forgotten everything they'd ever learned in growing up. I know we talk about people in various positions, but they shouldn't have to be told how to do the basic stuff. Was it Matt Busby who used to tell his players to "just go oot and play fitbal" ( he was a Scot)

Apart from the waffling, I don't think I've ever seen an interviewee fidget as much as Heckingbottom in that interview. It's like he had fleas.

Bit of a fallacy that, you could ask Gianfranco Zola and the 2 other Birmingham managers since Rowatt about a honeymoon period.
