    Despite Coyle and Rosler we made it to an FA Cup semi-final and the play-offs. Just reinforces my belief that the squad we had was more than capable of returning the club to the Premier League.

    Cellino certainly likes to sack a manager!! Can’t see much changing at Leeds until he decides to give a manager time.

    Rosler had his moments.

    He took us to a fabulous away win at Manchester City – when City were out for revenge for their Cup Final defeat. He went on to a fantastic semi-final at Wembley, where we more than matched Arsenal.

    And we did reach the play-offs – though that was something of an anticlimax.

    I think his discipline with the players may have caused some problems.

    I think his discipline with the players may have caused some problems.

    Rosler had his good points (he knew how to get the best out of the players he inherited & was the best thing to happen to Gomez) but these were outnumbered by his faults the longer his reign went on & for me they were:
    Squad rotation – made too many changes apparently for changes sake. Only my opinion but as well as he did rescuing the Coyle season we could & should have got more points than we did as I think sometimes it cost us games that were there for the taking. I also think that players not knowing whether they were likely to be playing from week to week no matter how well they performed was a bigger factor in turning some of them against him than his discipline. I read a few of them in his first season saying that it took some getting used to or was difficult but he was getting the results. He continued it into his second season & when he wasn’t getting the results players & supporters turned on him
    His signings – I remember saying to a mate at the QPR play off game that one of my biggest worries with him was the quality of his signings coz I hadn’t been impressed by any that he’d brought in up till that point & judging by the fact that he didn’t play most of them, neither did he. He was backed with significant money in the summer & he bought mostly players that he didn’t play & which the 2 managers after him didn’t play either &/or shipped out (though admittedly one of the drivers behind their departure was money Or lack of it)
    His tactics – seemed more obsessed with what the other team might do than he was with the strengths of his own team. That seemed to work in “big games” like the City & Arsenal cup ties but not so well in the league especially when he had his squad as opposed to Bobby’s or Coyle’s. On top of that he never, ever came close to getting his team to adopt the style of play that he said he championed. In fact I never even saw evidence that he was trying to implement it & towards the end of his time he seemed to have changed tack & that he wanted his teams to play possession football

    By the time he was binned off the playing side of the club just seemed a complete & total shambles

    And some have a moan about our owner and his elected chairman. The last sacking of Redfearn was a disgrace after the way he turned Leeds around last season. This one well beggars belief again after such a short time in charge. How long will Evans get????

    Just reinforces my view that he lost the plot around the time of the Arsenal semi and hasn’t got it back. Didn’t know how to pick a team after that, got a big too big for his boots.

    As for the short time in charge comment, I wanted Malky out after 5 games. It isn’t too soon if it’s wrong.

    Malky shouldn’t have been appointed in the first place.
