Gary McAllister is fans’ choice
Gary McAllister is the fans' choice to takeover the Leeds United, it would appear.
In a poll conducted by the Yorkshire Evening Post the Scot has garnered almost twice as many votes as any other listed candidate to be given the Leeds job.
At the moment Steve Clarke, the former West Bromwich Albion boss, is the bookies’ favourite, and he received 16% of the vote, but Massimo Cellino may be wise to choose a man whose appointment would certainly appease the fan-base.
Hudson wants time
Huddersfield Town’s latest recruit Mark Hudson says that the team need to be given time under Chris Powell.
Powell, who was only appointed this week, will be looking to turn the club’s fortunes around, after a poor start to the season and Hudson says that they need to be given time.
The former Cardiff City centre-back says that the time to judge Huddersfield will be at Christmas, rather than in the short-term.
“There are good players at this club and my message to the fans is judge us after Christmas,” he said.
“That’s when you get to the real nitty gritty of the season, and we plan to be in a much better position by then.”
Gray not thinking about Drenthe’s past
Stuart Gray insists that Royston Drenthe’s past will not be taken into consideration at Sheffield Wednesday.
Drenthe has a reputation for being a player who is hard to manage, after his career has gone downhill since moving to Real Madrid as a youngster, but his new boss says that his move to Hillsborough can provide him with a fresh start.
“Obviously there’s been a few issues he’s had at Reading but he has a fresh chance with us now he is here,” he said.
“This move shows he’s willing to get off his backside.
“Maybe Reading’s loss can be our gain.”
Wallace completes full game
James Wallace has completed a full game for Sheffield United for the first time since completing a summer move from Tranmere Rovers.
The central-midfielder has struggled with injury since his move to Bramall Lane, but it seems that he could be ending closer to full fitness now.
The new recruit completed 90 minutes for the development side yesterday and Wallace will be hoping to use this as a platform to build upon.
Joe Skarz enjoying Championship life
Rotherham United full-back Joe Skarz says that he has enjoyed playing Championship football.
The Millers have had an inconsistent start to life in the second-division, but Skarz says they are relishing the challenge.
“It’s been a tough first month and we’ve played some good teams,” he said.
“But all the lads can say they’ve really enjoyed it and we can’t wait for more.”
