What a balloon you are,I get it’s probably time for a change but to make a comment like that after the success he brought to the club is pathetic. I’m a Wire fan btw
Balloon is being polite. Too many feckwits happy to enjoy the glory then refuse to give any credit to the man who made it possible.
It's probably right for McDermott to leave but the gratitude and respect for his huge achievements should be universal amongst any Leeds fans with more than two brain cells.

Dennis Betts perhaps....


Don`t shoot the messenger but I was told that Betts was to come in in the interim whilst you employed your new coach. Would be a terrible decision in my eyes.

Can't say i'm surprised by this, we look a bit of a shambles at the minute. Brian had two great chances to go on his own terms end of 2015 and then end of last year but decided against it so it was inevitably going to end something like this. I wish him all the best, his record cannot be argued with and his place in history cemented.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

There is a very real chance of being involved in the M8s this year and a couple of the Championship clubs look likely candidates to win promotion. We do not want to be one of a couple of Super League teams playing in the £1m game. Therefore action needed to be taken now.

True. It's a hard life as a professional sports coach, if you are winning it's hard to walk away into another job (especially if you are happy where you are) that may or may not exist unless you are at retirement age - which Mac obviously isn't. So, the only remaining option is to wait for things to go south. It's rare you get a Sir Alex, even Wenger couldn't pull that one off.
Mac may have inherited an extraordinary bunch of big game players and winners but he obviously created the right environment to get the best out of them as they aged. I have always been a massive fan of how he has represented the club and the game.
Team effort to succeed, team effort to fail.

That statement from Hetherington that the players are actually off until Wednesday, tells all quite clearly that this is an element of player power. Getting the job done before the players return, I think the players have made their feelings clear to Hetherington, and this is why he has acted now. Doesn't say though whether Eaton has gone aswell, and yet places blame on the whole coaching set up.

GH says “Everybody else at this moment in time is in place, the only departure at this moment in time is Brian McDermott.”

I read this to say more will follow !

It does seem theres more to this as the timing is strange.


Suggests to me that the preferred candidate is currently employed elsewhere. Gives them time to wrap up the season with whoever they're with. At the same time their employer is more likely to negotiate as they're able to make their own preparations in decent time.

As for McDermott there have been plenty of brilliant moments. It's a near cert that his replacement falls short of what he achieved.
