Shame on Leeds. New era begins disgracefully.

Well, welcome to the new Cellino era! Even before he has his foot officially through the door, he's sacked his first manager - the affable, thoroughly decent, honest, dedicated, hard working Brian McDermott; and replaced him, for the time being, with Uncle Festa.

And on what basis? Because McDermott is not a lap dog and refused to fetch the stick when Cellino threw it! Leeds fans hated the overbearing style of Bates, well believe you me, they haven't seen anything yet!

Remember, Cellino hasn't even been ratified and sanctioned as the new owner but the only reason he has given for McDermott's dismissal is that he refused to follow unacceptable orders and had the audacity to speak to the press. Well, he probably breached his contract when he did that but look at the level of provocation. He knew he was on the way out as soon as the sale of Reg Varney was cancelled. How could he manage a player he so obviously wanted to sell?

And on what basis has Festa been appointed? He's a mate of Cellino's! Has he guided a team to promotion from the Championship? No.  So what are his qualifications exactly? Assistant manager at Cagliari for two seasons and head coach at Lumezzani - and in case you have never heard of them, Lumezzani are the Italian equivalent of Port Vale! Just perfect.

So the man who has sacked 36 managers has started as he means to go on. McDermott has gone already and Festa will follow within the next 9 months - because he's a consiglieri not a son of the Sicilian Godfather.

It's going to be a rocky ride on the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Sleeper Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond from here on in.

And poor Brian? Not so long ago he could walk on water, now he sleeps with the fishes!

    1. No shame at all on Leeds...Leeds have been shamed by this shoddy ownership . GFH, claiming to want to do whats best for the club?? What a disgrace.....So next season when we travel to Upton Park it will be the embezzlers v the pornographers!

  17. Its fair to say Cellino has not handled the McDermott situation well, to say the least! I thought under him given time and backing he was the right man for the job. But let's just take a deep breath. GFH have found a buyer who in his own words has "lots of money". This doesn't guarantee success but certainly makes it easier. Lets see what this bloke can do, he has owned a moderately successful football club in the top flight in Europe, so is he really a mug? Have we ever done anything the easy way or straight forward at Leeds!!!! MOT Festa will not be the manager long term, lets see who this bloke puts his money on and then judge him
