It must be a late April's Fool! The Mirror, in a masterpiece of lazy journalism, has linked Allardyce to Leeds on the basis that he is out of contract in the summer, and Leeds need a new manager. There is, of course, no evidence to support the story - not even a tapped phone call! - and, if you can be bothered to read a little further down, you will find the rag refuting its own story.
As the article admits, Leeds would struggle to match the wages West Ham are able to offer Allardyce, and, after being sacked following two take overs, Doctor Evil is hardly likely to climb aboard the White Pig when the Arab bank built on sand are hawking the club like a Bedouin in a bazaar.
The uncomfortable truth for Leeds fans is that whilst Allardyce is ideally qualified to take on the Warnock's rag bag collection of cloggers, Leeds United can no longer compete on a level playing field, financially, with West Ham. Yes a clapped out former England left back may fancy a long term contract to ease him into retirement rather than a four month extension to his Prem career, but Allardyce isn't desperate and knows when he is on to a good thing.
So tell me, why would anybody swap a Premiership club about to move into the Olympic Stadium and owned by lifelong fans for a team struggling to survive in the Championship, owned as a short term investment, without a stadium and accept lower wages into the bargain?
The Mirror article was a cheap way of generating hits if you ask me!
