SPANISH ;) Thomas Christiansen sacked after one season in Belgian club. He seems like a nice guy, I just don’t think, he has “it” to coach a team?

Think you could be right.
My thoughts are that he could be a good number two but he's not a natural No1. Teams under him here looked to play decent football but without any real spark that a good motivator would give.

I agree, He is and was a really nice chap. For me he was a bit too soft spoken for a first team coach/manager, that's not to say players dislike or even disrespect him, I just feel that he doesn't command that extra bit that a top coach needs to motivate his players during a game. There has to be that bit of a rough diamond about a head coach especially with all the footballing ego's in a team. He doesn't have that unfortunately.

Shame really isn't it?, he has it but needs that nasty side to him. Maybe a run as a number 2 might give the confidence to do a top job in the future.

No where near the worst we have ever had just needed some more hardened experience before he came.
Owners come and go but Leeds United will be there forever, for the fans - keep Marching on Together.

I used to think that. And then along came Sven Goran Eriksson and tipped my world upside down. Although i guess the ladies certainly thought Sven had that bit of rough about him. ;)
