BLAME MASSIMO FOR SAD LEEDS STALLING
FOR 45 minutes this was a wretched spectacle, filled with turgid, braindead football.
Defender trapped by the corner flag or running towards his own goal? May as well dive in with an idiotic shove, get him out of jail. Time and space in your own half? Why not lump an uncontrollable ball towards your centre-forwards?
The lack of quality was glaring, and explains exactly why these two are scrapping it out at the division’s dirty end.
In Rotherham’s case, that’s a financial inevitability. The Millers are fighting against clubs with ten times the funds. Just being in the division is a miracle.
Yet for Leeds, the blame can be laid squarely at the door of Massimo Cellino, who is reaping the results of the rank instability he has sown. As Redfearn said, the solution isn’t rocket science. But will Cellino listen? No. He’ll keep sacking managers, then degrade them with infantile taunts.
The sooner Leeds are shot of him the better.
