With a heap of players out of contract, a new owner, season tickets on sale (and prices frozen) and still the mild threat of further legal action coming out of Italy against Cellino, there is more than enough to keep the average fans imagination busy, but there are two issues that need resolving sooner rather than later, and they are arguably the two most important issues for our short term future.
The first is the role of Brian McDermott, and the question of whether he does, indeed, have a future role at the club. McDermott would be long gone had Cellino's first attempt to buy the club gone through unchallenged, but the fan reaction, followed the takeover delays gave Cellino the chance to reconsider his approach, and to be fair, he stuck with the manager for the final part of the season.
Results have not be great this year, but in the periods on either side of the Takeover sage, the team have performed and it would be ridiculous to dismiss the impact that events off the field impacted the team on it. McDermott came to Leeds as a good manager, but perhaps not so much when there are protracted issues off the field of play.
Cellino has hinted that he is prepared to give McDermott a chance, citing the fact that there are two years left on his contract and Leeds does not need additional costs. The soundbites from the Italian in recent weeks are that Leeds United financial position is far worse than first feared, with the wage bill being the primary concern.
As the Leagues and cups are completed, and teams know their fate for next season, together with a huge shop window of a World Cup and contracts ending all over the globe, it is a crucial time to have a manager in place and preparing his team for the challenge ahead.
Until McDermotts fate is clearly determined, Leeds will be unable to resolve their second major issue of the summer, the services of Ross McCormack. Captain McCormack is a known support of Brian McDermott and resolving the future of the Manager is the first obstacle is ensuring the leading scorer stays where he is. Ross is attracting the interest of a number of Premiership clubs and is already quoting that Leeds need to be looking for promotion next year, not the season after when he will be too old, indicating he might look for a move elsewhere. Ross McCormack has been critical to the team this season, and would be an essential part of any squad looking for promotion, so what happens to the forward is a pretty good indication of the ambition of the club for 2014/15.
McCormack may yet come to the rescue of McDermott as he has so often on the pitch.
