IS TIME RUN­NING OUT FOR BOSS ROSLER?

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

UWE Rosler said this week that his side have no pro­mo­tion am­bi­tions. With luck like this, it’s just as well.

The Whites didn’t play like a side on the cusp of un­wanted his­tory. In the first half, es­pe­cially, Rosler’s men took the game to Brighton, at­tack­ing with pace, threat­en­ing from set pieces and pin­ning the vis­i­tors back.

But against a welldrilled side mas­ter­ful on the counter, Leeds could not af­ford the in­jury that re­duced them to ten men.

Yes, Rosler could have kept a sub in re­serve. Many at El­land Road felt he’d blun­dered.

But no man­ager should be blamed for chas­ing vic­tory.

And let’s face it – the home side were un­done by a class fin­ish from a class act – step for­ward former Ful­ham man Bobby Zamora.

Will Mas­simo Cellino see it that way?

You wouldn’t want to bet any money on the out­come.

The Ital­ian has wielded the axe for far less. Rosler must surely be fear­ing the worst.
