Well there's a kick in the teeth for Nice Guy Brian. Poyet has revealed that he wants to manage Leeds one day and it transpires that the Lesser Talented Non Biting Uruguayan was on the shortlist to replace the Warnock but the 2.5m compensation demanded by Brighton forced the Leeds board to look elsewhere.
How short sighted is that? If Poyet is the right man for the job, a paltry 2.5m should not have stood in the way of his recruitment.
What does this say to Nice Guy Brian? Firstly, the Arab bank built on sand are penny pinching and don't appear to have two camels to rub together - not great news when the squad needs extensive restructuring.
And secondly, poor Brian was not even second choice after Nigel Adkins, he was number three on the list, unless, of course Leeds would have preferred Il Duce Di Canio as well!
Still, if everybody in the club pulls in the same direction and the obstacles are removed...
