Leeds fans are wondering who will be replacing Garry Monk and now have been confronted by the possibility of Alan Pardew.
Out of work for six months now, the former Palace and Newcastle boss has seen his odds tumble for the job at Elland Road.
Prepared to work at a crazy club under a Director of Football, Alan Pardew is seen by many neutrals as an ideal candidate.
Though not too sure how many Leeds fans will agree with that…
Out of work and with no compensation to be paid, Pardew has that going for him as well.
The dramatic shortening of adds sees Alan Pardew competing with Claudio Ranieri as the bookies favourite for the job, both around the 3/1 mark.
To go from just missing out on the play-offs and the new sense of optimism Garry Monk brought…to Alan Pardew, would be a tough one to take for our friends from Leeds.
Comments from Leeds fans via various message boards:
‘Hate to ruin everyone’s day but Alan Pardew’s odds have tumbled.’
‘Please no, not him…crazy:
Christ, he’s such a……I’d prefer anyone to him.’
‘I concur. As I’ve said many times, I’m seriously concerned about the managerial situation. It needs to be sorted sooner rather than later. I still feel we’ll end up appointing a manager with a rubbish record and a poor CV – and if that happens then we’re back to square one.’
‘Rather have Pardew then Pearson, Rather have Pep or Karanka than both.’
‘As long as its not Steve McClaren.’
‘It just can’t be McLaren or Moyes for that matter.’
‘Oh no not them either, how do these guys keep getting jobs.’
‘I don’t want any of the usual blaggers who’ve been on the circuit for yonks, either. There’s a reason they keep getting fired.’
‘Pardew just overtaken Clotet as favourite on Oddschecker….please NO!!!!’
‘Pardew…Lets really mess it up and get graham souness as his assistant.’
‘No no no not Pardew.’
