Spanish I can’t even remember our coach’s Name he’s that nondescript!

----------

thing is, a club like Leeds IMO needs big personalities in the management, not people who have to report to somebody, and they report to somebody.... we need to get a manager in who manage's the club, for me, its that simple.

or is 'allowed' to manage....

give the right manager a decent budget, and we'll go up

you really have to wonder how PH's name came up as a replacement for TC in the first place.

Doesn’t need a big personality, just needs a manager who knows what to do to get promoted and is allowed to get the players in he needs.

Wilko for example wasn’t that big a personality, but he knew what to do, was given full backing and time.

The players we need will come here if they see that in place, our history is no longer really a big pull.

Good thread this Gelderd - just making sure it joins the 100 club!

Maybe, but think of the volume of abuse Gelderd will suffer if PH is in post for the first game of next season.

Sgt Wilko prevailed in an era that was different to the one in which Revie was successful and today's football world is different again.

We are more media-led than ever before, kick-offs being dictated by TV scheduling etc..

I agree with Jonty that whoever leads the footballing side of things doesn't necessarily have to be a big personality but, in the modern era, not having one is often seen as a weakness.

I still believe that we need a British manager, a manager that has Championship experience and one that has had some recent success.

I say manager because I also believe that's what we require. Not a head coach. This Director of Football nonsense doesn't work here.

Let's get back to basics. Bring in players with experience of this league too.

Understanding the league and some sense of what being at a club like Leeds United is half the battle. I've seen lots of players unable to play to the best of their ability here, almost frozen, frightened by the weight of expectation and the stage on which they perform.

One can wish.....

You say we need a british manager, yet two of three promoted were foreign

I don’t believe we need foreign or British manager

We need a GOOD manager

Same with the players, I don’t buy into that players can’t play because they can’t handle the expectations.

It’s down to ability nothing else, that why we’ve struggled.

Agreed, LIW. This year, 2 foreign coaches got teams promoted. Last year, two foreign coaches got teams promoted. Question is, could any coach get our lot promoted?

Thing is with promotion is how many teams/clubs do it our way and how many do it the way we want it doing?..

Clubs that get promoted are clubs that are doing things right, that means they're leaving there manager to do it his way!..

Or they have coaches doing it our way but putting the right players in the right places!..

But to do that you have to have the right coach and the right players, which seems to be our downfall in most departments!..
