Crystal Palace I reckon, Parish does like a British manager.

He might not have got everything right, but I've enjoyed watching us this season than at any time since the Grayson Glory Days. Judging by the attendances, so have many fans.

Back to Square 1.

Let's hope we avoid the Invasion of the Serie B Moneysnatchers this time.

Manage a club in the top flight who will probably be fighting relegation against managing a sleeping giant or more realistically one that died in its sleep

Nowt like loyalty is there

It's all so predictable with the Manager-go-round at the top of the championship/ bottom of the Premiership. Whoever gets the gig will do the "Leeds are a big club and I'm proud to be here" speech holding the new kit for the press pics, do a season and then fuck off with a pocket full of money and move on to some other hapless football club to repeat the process. Professional football these days is just a big load of knackers really isn't it.

Believe it or not, Dock, but im slowly starting to go along with your way of thinking. Its all boring as fuck, this LUFC circus. And the football thang in general. But its like ive said before about it all being about the buisness side of things rather than the game side of things. But thats the way that it has gone. So we either get on with it and carry on putting up with the shit that goes with every football club in the country or defect from the game as you have chosen to do. Im not quite on your side of the fence but i can see the gap in it as each season passes. But its a hard thing to push away from your life when its been a good part of it for such a long time.

The people that support teams deserve better with regard to acquiring success. It's just unfair to fans. That's how I view it. There's a lot of money made in football but it isn't represented in some owners efforts to push a club into success.

Only when we appoint his replacement will I be able to make sense of this. Right now I'm a tad miffed and feel a bit cheated by the club and Monk. Think it was obvious that Radrizzani wasn't fully committed to him. He's shown a bit of tactical lacking during our run in but the sneaky way AR then came up with a better three year contract says to me that he is a bit of a shyster.  Like Private Pyle he had best square his ass away and start shitting me Tiffany cuff links to get me on board now

Shouldn't worry H. Normal service should resume and you'll be back to rationality and common sense before you know it. Deep breaths and a Lemsip should do it.

Looking back though ... weren't Steve Evans and Dave Hockaday a right fucking hoot?

Hockaday is now head of football at a college in Gloucestershire.

I'm sure he could be tempted back.
