'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Blackwell Sacked

We'll it has been an eventful two years and a bit in charge, but this afternoon Kevin Blackwell's time at Leeds came to an end.

After a dissappointing end to last season followed by a horrible start to this, Ken Bates finally decided enough was enough and sacked the manager.

The name currently leading the race to replace him, in terms of the bookies is Denis Wise. Of course he has links with the Chairman. Ken Bates is actually godfather to one of Wise's children. He is doing well at Swindon and got Millwall to the F.A Cup Final, the only stumbling blocks appear to be that he isn't the most popular man at Elland Road and he has yet to manage a big club.

Other names include O'Leary, Raneari (why), Curbishley, and Byran Robson (no thanks).

Sky Sports didn't mention Strachan but I'd like to as I think he would be the ideal chioce. Perhaps they think he wouldn't leave Celtic but no harm in asking.

BRING BACK STRACH

don't give it to anyone currently at the club, I was shocked to see Mcallister one of the favourites to get the job, I don't think he would be a popular choice with the fans. Get your money on Ranieri at 10/1

McAllister would do a good job for you, but don't be surprised if the mighty Megson gets a look in. Then you know you're heading for the rocks.
