Pearson would be my choice.
McDermott back would be interesting.

I truly believe our disciplinary record which ultimately has affected performances/results has cost Christiansen his job, he really had to address this problem. Berardi's dismissal & two consecutive bashings at ER probably sealed his fate

So the board and head of transfers don't give him an adequate squad but rather than fall on their own swords sack him. Same as how Bates didn't sign the players Grayson wanted and then waited until after the transfer window shut and then sacked Grayson so he wouldn't have to buy new players for the new manager.

First the crest fiasco and now this - once more we are a joke of a club. In any other industry nobody would touch the Leeds manager/coach job with a bargepole but cos this is football all the usual failed muppets will apply, do a sh*t job and then walk off with a big payday.

2 weeks in a row that the board bows to fan pressure - gutless inept cowards.

Again I ask What did TC ever do to earn this job and keep it ? The first manager we've had since Wise to go through a long spell of relegation form. No past experience at any decent level so basically his first job in proper football ..

Very little chance of many points on the horizon, tough games coming up we'll still probably lose but so would he have and then it would have been 25 points from around 25 games.

He was never going to last long

Can't argue with that

Unimpressed with Radz, Orta is a clown & Christiansen who is a nice man but was probably out of his depth so you have to ask questions of the whole managerial team.

I've said all along I think our fans have been hoodwinked.

I still believe we are no better on the pitch than when Cellino left our club

I think we are a lot worse on the pitch than when MC left. A lot of improvements off field and at U23 level but the first team first XI is significantly weaker and I wouldn't even say the first team squad is any stronger.

I don't think any of us really know if TC is a good manager as he has been sold short by the people responsible for first team transfers if their actual goal was to finish top6. TC's remit was to take a team that had finished the season in freefall and finish 7th and get them to do better despite having the key successes removed. The one significant improvement in the first team, Saiz, is not better than Green, Taylor, Bartley and Wood.

If TC is deemed to be not good enough (and they really think the squad they assembled is that great) then AR has made a huge balls up with his first managerial appointment. Whichever way it is looked at I don't think AR comes out of this with any credit. The next appointment will say a lot about whether or not he hasn't a clue about what he is doing as his decision tonight has raised huge question marks over the potential success of his so called 2 year and 5 year plans if he can't get such a huge decision right as being able to appoint a manager that can at least last a season.

If you hire someone then back then and give them the best chance to succeed and then if they fail well you know they weren't good enough and you have to be honest enough to admit you made a mistake in hiring them but you at least then get the credit for realising your mistake and sacking them. If you hire someone then don't give them the best chance to succeed then sack them it just looks to me like you are trying to deflect the blame from yourself.

No complaints from me. It wouldn't have bothered me if he'd stayed on till the end of the season.

However his replacement must be better qualified for the job.

It was well documented that TC presented a detailed summary in his interview for the post at ER on where Leeds went wrong under Monk

I wonder if he'll analyse his own short-comings ?

From the list of names n the betting I really don't fancy any of those linked. The McClaren one is a bit odd, surely if they were looking at him as an option they wouldn't have had him in the Director's box for the game that leads to TC getting sacked? This sort of thing should have been behind closed doors and out of the public eye surely, absolutely nothing to be gained by him being seen to be there unless the decision had already been made prior to the game and TC already knew otherwise his position is severely compromised whatever happens.

Well Leon It all started with the first loss at Millwall. We were outmuscled and found out.
and Well the next few games were disastrous for us cos other teams followed suit, and well
we got a drubbing.

Well then we made some sort of recovery cos, well to be honest we were
playing teams near the bottom of the league, but I was well pleased when
we beat Monk and Boro... I felt like well vindicated.

Well then came the Leeds Salute Crest debacle. The board thought the fans would be well
pleased but it turned out that the fans pissed on their own heritage... and well what with
the petition against the Crest, we had this rise in fan power... and the feeling in the board
room and the dressing room was well... we are not doing anything right and the fans
are not well pleased.

Well once the fans got a sniff of blood, they started baying for my head. Well you see
with great Power comes great Iresponsibility... I feel like the club is now well... being
pulled down in the vortex of a whirlpool, and things are spiralling out of control.

All things considered I think I am well out of it, and well I am happy and relieved to leave.
A bit Crestfallen but who isn't.

Well Leon I hope that answers your questions for you. Be well.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

Sad that this happened, but we all knew it was going to and it had to happen.

Thanks TC, wish you all the best.

Onwards and upwards (Or sideways as the case will more than like be).

Only name I'd consider out of the names mentioned is Slaven Bilic. Different, and did a decent job in a difficult position at the hammers.

No-one else interest me what so ever. However I can see Mclaren getting the nod tho. God help us.

Saw some suggestion on Twitter that the real beginning of the end was the debacle at Newport and I can see that 100% we never felt like we recovered from that as a squad and put it behind us. Be interesting to see TCs take on the impact even though we never will.
