Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking for a number of changes to happen at the club this summer as they do not want a repeat of this season.
The locals in the bar have become frustrated with the way their side plays, having seen them start in solid form before struggling to find their feet and pick up three points on a regular occurrence. Manager Paul Heckingbottom was brought in to try and turn the ship around – however, he has found life difficult and a number of punters have been vocal about how they feel.
His role at Elland Road has already come into doubt, having joined from Barnsley in February, and he could be about to find out what his future at the club looks like with reports he will have meetings this week, as per reliable Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay.
all I know at this stage is that he’s at Elland Road for meetings etc all week. Then due to go on holiday.

And this update is likely to intrigue our resident Leeds supporters, many of whom are hoping their side can sustain a Championship promotion push next time round after the frustrations of the current campaign.
But whether Heckingbottom is the man to lead that charge very much remains to be seen.
Landlord’s Verdict: Having been a poor start to life with the Whites, there is no real surprise amongst the locals that Heckingbottom’s future is already up for debate.
It is believed that the meetings could be no more than talks about transfer targets and what their aims are for next season, and if that were true, the punters in the bar will be expecting movements to be made quickly.
Leeds fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
