Well that's it then. Even if Leeds throw Friar Brian off the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Sleeper Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond, they have missed out on the man who they should have appointed, because Gorgeous Gus has moved to Blunderland.
However, all is not lost. Should McDermott be sacked, or choose to walk, Leeds could always appoint the man that Poyet has replaced - Il Duce Di Canio!
The Italian fascist may prefer black shirts to white, but I'm sure he would approve of the club's Ultras - albeit, he would probably frown upon LUST's recent girly response to the nasty singing of the Millwall mongrels.
All in all, Di Canio could be the perfect antidote for the Nice Guy Brian era, offering a straight arm salute instead of the consoling hug. And you never know, Il Duce might even be able to get the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Sleeper Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond to run on time!
