Dear God, how many times is Nice Guy Brian going to recycle the same old clichés? If we have heard the line, "go in the same direction", we've heard it a hundred times already. It's all a question of pulling in the same direction, being honest, removing barriers, putting right what is wrong and pulling in the same direction, being honest, removing barriers, putting right what is wrong and pulling in the same direction...
OK Brian we get it!
In fact, if you add up everything Nice Guy Brian has said so far, it could all be summed up by Maggie's statement on the steps of 10 Downing Street after her first election as Prime Minister: "Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is doubt, may we bring faith. And where there is despair, may we bring hope."
That's very fitting, of course, following on as it does from Sunny Warnock's "Crisis? What crisis?" winter of discontent at Elland Road.
Here's a few more classics that Nice Guy Brian could polish up and claim as his own:
We shall have to learn again to be one club, or one day we shall be no club.
My job is to stop Leeds going into the red.
Points don't fall from heaven, they have to be earned here on the pitch.
Defeat—I do not recognise the meaning of the word!
We have become a manager of Leeds.
Or after the result on Saturday:
We've beaten Birmingham twice and now they're back!
