Leeds United made substantial progress to climb from the relegation zone
Leeds United made substantial progress to climb from the relegation zone in the last few weeks. This was thanks to an unbeaten run of eight matches. Since suffering the 1-0 loss against QPR back towards the end of November, the club achieved some great results over the last two months.
However, it has just come to an end with a crushing 2-1 loss against Ipswich Town while playing away from home. This led to manager Steve Evans claiming that the team needs more quality in order to start pushing for promotion. This has been the ambition for the club over the last decade. (more…)

Leeds United made yet another managerial change
Leeds United made yet another managerial change after appointing former Wigan Athletic manager Uwe Rosler, as the replacement for Neil Redfearn.
The latter was sacked only a few weeks ago after a disappointing end to the campaign. Leeds United failed to get even in the top 10 of the table. They had managed only one win underRedfearn in the last few weeks of the campaign.Redfearn paid the price for this poor form by losing his job. The club owner, Massimo Cellino, has always shown a passion for doing away with managers rather quickly and he appears to have changed little even after taking over at Leeds.
Rosler is widely known for his failed spell with Wigan. He almost got them back into the Premier League in a marathon campaign. However, after failing in the play-offs, Wigan were subsequently relegated to League One at the end of the season. After he had signed a two-year contract with Leeds,Rosler had been looking to bring in assistant manager Rob Kelly. The contract negotiations have finalised and Kelly has been brought in place as the number two at the club.Rosler has failed the influence of Kelly at organising the team. The duo could be working very closely in order to get Leeds back into the Premier League. (more…)
