Well three weeks ago Father Brian was walking on water, now he is sinking like the proverbial Steve Stone! Much more of this, and Leeds fans will be reminiscing about the good old days of Master Bates and Old Big Gob Warnock!
And talking of Warnock, some will note that McDermott's Leeds now occupy fifteenth place in the table, and that is as low as Leeds sank under his predecessor. If this is the "steady progress" that Leeds fans were predicting as the season kicked off, then that progress is as Irish as McDermott's parentage!
The play off places are now a frightening seven points away and a break away group seems to be forming, with the table having a much more clear cut look about it this season than last. The teams at the bottom look likely to stay at the bottom, and with Leeds equidistant, points wise, from seventh place and third from bottom, that is a small mercy to be savoured.
McCormack's Mcgoals have Mcdried up since he got his extended Mccontract and two shots on target all game, despite enjoying, ironically, the Lion's share of the possession, says everything that needs to be said about the potency of this Leeds team. Collectively, they couldn't score in a brothel!
Of course, as a West Ham fan, I am none too pleased to see Millwall win, but it's good to see a West Ham old boy, in the shape of Steve Lomas, enjoying a victory. Not so long ago, it was Lomas under pressure as McDermott collected the accolades, but now the Leeds manager might start seeing the attraction of managing Ireland!
The Feel Good Factor Sleeper Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond seems to have derailed dramatically. And Leeds fans had better pray that the takeover rumours harden up, because for as long as the Arab Bank Built on Sand retain control of the club, the Premiership will remain a distant dream.
