Don’t do it Leeds!

As per many media sources, Leeds United have ended their search for a new manager, as they have appointed former Watford manager Javier Gracia, subject to a work permit. The Spaniard, 52 took The Hornets to an FA Cup final in 2019 but also oversaw an 8-0 drubbing by Manchester City.

Gracia after his Watford dismissal had a spell as manager of Valencia, but they have a board who are arguably more impatient than Watford’s. Al Sadd in Qatar would be the Spaniard’s next job after that.

Javier Gracia does have Premier League experience, having had two attempts at the Watford job. The issue I have isn’t that I think Gracia is a terrible coach, but his appointment just really is showing The Lilywhites board being desperate for a manager.

Tottenham 2.0 I think of with how many brick walls they have hit in their search for a new manager, but also Watford 2.0. Why they remind me of Watford is due to them having three managers this season and two, two seasons prior.

You can’t get more Championship side Watford than that could you? I find this amazing, especially when former boss Marcelo Bielsa was in the Elland Road hot seat for four years.

A manager can be in a job for a medium to a long time. Think Diego Simeone, think Jurgen Klopp, all you have to do is look. Having said that, with Leeds being the subject of a reported takeover by the owners of the San Francisco 49ers, staying in the Premier League is crucial.

Leeds United are showing they will do anything they can to make sure this happens.
