Leeds have always been viewed as something of a car crash, but even by our remarkable recent history, the last few months have continued to astound and amaze. Last season seems barely over, yet we go into Saturdays opener at Millwall having had a massive overhaul.
Our 'president' Massimo Cellino has overseen changes not seen since we dropped out of the Premiership, when we sold our Crown Jewels for the price of some Elizabeth Duke trinkets.
First out of the door was boss Brian McDermott-no surprise with that one, Cellino made his thoughts clear when he sacked him on day one, before a quick climb down and reappointment.
Next was a huge cost cutting exercise, Thorpe arch closed for a while, redundancies and the removal of plenty of the coaching staff.
The next change sent shock waves through the club-the appointment of little known (or never known) David Hockaday as manager-a man with no experience of anything of this magnitude.
The sale of our one star play, Ross McCormack would normally have seen fans go into meltdown, but a ridiculous fee of £11 million more than cushioned the blow-the money to be spent on buying back Elland Road....apparently..
Pre season started with a 16-0 farcical win, a no show from the opposition, and players leaping in and out of freezing streams.
There were then a couple of shocking performances against Mansfield and Chesterfield as a huge influx of players continued to come through the Elland Road revolving door. Almost every one had us frantically searching Wikipedia and YouTube to find out who they were.
Out final pre season game was against Dundee on Saturday-a much improved performance, especially first half-although by all accounts President Cellino was far from happy with how we played!
So here we are, three days before the opener. More transfers are expected, starting with Juventus' centre back Sorenson today. It's anyone's guess what the starting line up will be, but Bianchii and Doukara impressed last time out and seem certain to start, along with Silverstri in goal.
Expectations this season? Honestly have no idea which way it is going to go, although bookies have us at 40/1 to win the championship so it's clear what they expect.
One thing is for sure, it won't be dull with Cellino in charge, but whether that's a good thing or not, I'm not so sure yet..
Millwall match preview to come later on the week.
