Boss on Leeds Utd Future

For a man who has amassed 17 points out of a possible 33, Leeds fans can probably understand why manager Gary McAllister was delighted with the news that he had earned a 12-month rolling contract.

As a Leeds fan, I remain sceptical that McAllister was the right man for the job, and may have been part of the Ken Bates propaganda warfare to get supporters disillusioned with the later aspects of the Dennis Wise era, back on-side.

Nevertheless McAllister is with us for the time being, and told leedsunited.com of his joy:

'It's exciting. The support is there and I feel Leeds are on the way back.'

Whoops, sorry Macca!

'Since I came in I've been focused on trying to get the right number of points to get us out of this division.

'We're right on the edges now. There's six games left we can win, and the aim is to push on into play-off spots.

'I have a real belief in the players here and what they are doing. There is a real determination.

'The bigger goal is to get this club back in the Premiership.'


McAllister went on to talk about how there is already one eye on the future, rather than the uncertainty that his short-term deal had initially brought about, and that he hopes to secure the long term futures of assistant manager Steve Staunton and first team coach Neil McDonald beyond May.

'This also gives us the opportunity to work towards pre-season and to impress what we're looking for, and how we want to structure the team.'

'I've recommended that they [Staunton/McDonald]stay as part of my team. They have done a fantastic job and I'm sure the three of us will be here together next season.'

I'm unconvinced, now it's time for you to have your say.
