‘Mick McCarthy, come on down’ – Leeds United fans react on Twitter to manager comments

The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to comments from manager Paul Heckingbottom as he’s been talking about Leeds’ 12 game spell as “horrific and horrible” and that he expected to pick up more points from the 36 available. Leeds ten points from twelve games puts them alongside clubs like Sunderland and Burton Albion in the form table.

Paul Heckingbottom was appointed as Leeds manager after Thomas Christiansen was sacked following the club’s 4-1 loss to Cardiff, although things haven’t gone as planned for the former Barnsley manager in his time at Elland Road. The Whites came into the season with high hopes of finishing in a promotion playoff place, and going into the new year the club looked capable of it.

Results quickly turned for the Yorkshire club though and within a matter of months, the fans watched their side plummet from 6th to 14th. The Elland Road faithful are still dreaming of a long-awaited Premier League return as next season marks their ninth straight year in the Championship. If the club are to gain promotion at long last in the next few years they’ll need to stop selling key players like Chris Wood last summer and start to build around what they’ve got, although the fans can’t see that happening under current gaffer, Heckingbottom.
