It looks like the long wait for the next Leeds manager is over, with David Hockaday set to be announced as soon as tomorrow. The Yorkshire Post is reporting that the former Forest Green boss is set to travel up tomorrow to tie up the deal.
It seems incredible that the first thing we had to do when he was linked was not rush to social media to express our joy, but instead flick through Wikipedia to find out who the hell he was!
To be honest, once Cellino stated he was looking at a British manager, it was always going to be a little known coach. A 'big name' would shy away from the coaching model that Cellino seems to want, where he manages the club, and buys and sells the players, with the coach - coaching.
I can't be angry about the appointment-it might be a stroke of genius, but is it likely to keep the likes of McCormack interested in staying? Is it likely to be a lure for potential transfer targets?
I'm at a loss what to think to be honest as the Circus freak show that is Leeds continues to rumble on-never a dull moment eh???
