I think he wants it even more than the average Leeds United fan because he wants to say he got his eight promotions and bested every other manager in the league. He wants it so bad, he can't shut up about it for longer than a few minutes.
He obviously also hates any team he manages losing and takes it very personally, which is good because it's yet another incentive to bring in good players over the summer - that is assuming all of his public talk of the importance of a total overhaul has worked to the extent that Bates, Harvey & Williams can't help but to back him. Admittedly, that's a very large assumption but I think the fact that we've already brought in a decent player and trimmed out some of the deadwood (O'Dea, Varynen, Parker, Robinson and Bruce all gone, with more on the way on Wednesday) is a promising start.
I wish he'd just shut the fuck up tbh. I've had enough of his platitudes and cliches already.
His record with us is fuckin dire, but really, really bad. I know it's not "his" team and all that jizz, but... he's a football manager not a PR wallah, and since he took over we have gone from a team with a faint chance of the P/O places, to easily the worst team in a pretty poor division. Right now, on his record over a third of a season, he is probably the worst manager we have ever had, and I include the Poison Dwarf in that list. That can change of course, I hope and trust trust that it will.
So shut the fuck up Colin and do yer job, eh? When you've won a dozen matches you can start mouthing off, when we're solidly in the top 6 you say what the fuck you want to whoever you want. Til then, shut the fuck up and concentrate on yer day job.
