IS TIME RUNNING OUT FOR BOSS ROSLER?
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.
