If Nathan Jones does get sacked lets hope he's not gone too long.

Indeed. Bizarre run of poor results given the great job he did at Luton - smacks of a club with problems behind the scenes.

Either way it appears I have set off a chain reaction.

I asked a Stoke fan do you know where you’re going to and he said it’s really turned his world upside down

Gomes was asked if he's heard anything yet and said I'm still waiting.

I’d love to see Brian get another go as a manager. He’s been treated awfully in his short career so far with two muppets for a chairman (Leeds guy - forgot his name and Zingarevich)

BMcD got sacked twice from Leeds as well, iirc.

EDIT - yeah, but the full text is remarkable.

On 3 February, McDermott returned to the club and carried out first team training and a press conference announcing he had been reinstated after seemingly being sacked on 31 January by a lawyer. McDermott proclaimed his love for the club and said the fans support for him in the 5–1 win against Huddersfield Town meant that he wanted to return to the role despite the uncertainty. Speculation over his long-term future remained with the prospective takeover by Massimo Cellino still to be approved by the Football League.[51][52]

McDermott also revealed in his press conference that prospective new Head Coach Gianluca Festa had changed the starting line-up he had picked on 31 January for the fixture the following day against Huddersfield Town, only for the team to then be changed back again to the original starting line-up on Saturday by McDermott's assistant manager Nigel Gibbs. McDermott also revealed that on 3 February Festa was still present in training, however, this time acting as a translator for new signing Andrea Tabanelli. Tabanelli was signed in between the window of McDermott's 'sacking' and his reinstatement. McDermott revealed that the move was under scrutiny by the Football League as to see if the players signed would be sanctioned.[52]

...

After Leeds finished the season in a disappointing 15th place, On 14 May, in an interview with ITV, President Massimo Cellino questioned McDermott's decision to take a holiday, even proclaiming the club 'have no manager', and asked 'who's managing this club?' Brian, where's Brian?'.[56] On the same day it was revealed that the retain and release list of players would be handled by Massimo Cellino and Benito Carbone and not McDermott, the academy players decision would be made by Neil Redfearn.[57] On 15 May, Leeds confirmed Benito Carbone's position at the club in a statement on the club's official website on 15 May, they confirmed that Carbone 'will be involved with all football matters, including both the first team and the Academy'.[58]

On 30 May 2014, Brian McDermott and Leeds United parted company, with owner Massimo Cellino stating that he wanted a fresh approach, with a head coach rather than a manager.[6] On 16 June, McDermott was succeeded as Leeds Manager by Dave Hockaday who took up the role in a Head Coach capacity.[59]
