To be honest I lost a lot of respect for him with the way he reported and kept referring to 'Spygate' as Spygate. Writing for Leeds fans he should have not referred to it as Spygate.

He also then showed his ignorance for understanding football by still blaming Casillas for the first Derby goal.

Most of his 'in the know' links about transfers are about as reliable as many of the 'journalist's with less credence.

As such good riddance and hopefully the YEP will hire someone who knows about football - although no doubt they will promote one of the other 2 muppets that work for them.

Don't think I ever really paid any notice tbh. I thought he was just another poor pundit.

Only downside of this is that it will take a few years for whoever replaces him to build close relationships inside the club.

So in the short term a few less stories for YEP to post and for us to read.

But the accuracy of his stories and transfer deals were no better than the chancers on news now, who also know bugger all about the club and football.....

Just been reading some of his twitter feed, it seems there are many, many Leeds fans who will miss him.

Seems like he has landed a decent gig elsewhere.

The big love in on Twitter made me want to puke. Leeds fans behaving and reacting like teenagers losing their first love. Yak
