Leeds United are in free fall at present. Blackwell had clearly lost the dressing room and had to go. Good decision. Then John Carver is given a go. Fair Decision. It seems reasonable to let someone who knows the players and who was the assistant manager and who has worked at other big clubs have a go at turning the situation round.
In his first match we beat Birmingham 3-2 although given Birminghams recent slump in form it does not look so good with hindsight. Then we lost 4-2, 4-0, 2-1 finally yesterday 5-1 to Luton. A report can be found here. 15 goals shipped in four games!. His chance has gone and clearly some stability needs to be brought to the club in general and the dressing room in particular.
There is probably some dead wood in the dressing room but these are generally the same players that got to the playoff final last season so in theory with some organisation and determination a half decent manager should be able to turn things around. Come on Ken please sort out a decent appointment as the new manager a.s.a.p. If it is left much longer we will have to be working out how trim our budgets to life in Division 1!
Speaking of budgets and difficulties with managing them it did amuse me to see this article in the Guardian about Peter Ridsdale lining up a takeover for Cardiff. Good luck boys you will probably need it. How this guy is allowed to continue as a director of a football club let alone take one over is beyond me.
