Leeds fans react on Twitter to rumours Martin Allen could be appointed

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds United supporters are less than impressed by suggestions that Martin Allen could take over at Elland Road.

Leeds United supporters are less than impressed by the suggestion in the Daily Mail that the club are interested in appointing Barnet boss Martin Allen at the end of the season.

Allen has guided Barnet to the Conference title this season, but Leeds fans do not feel that he is qualified to take over at Elland Road.

The experienced boss has spent the entirety of his career in charge of clubs in the lower leagues and Whites fans feel that he is under-qualified to take charge at Leeds. 

At the moment Neil Redfearn is in the Elland Road hot-seat, but the 49-year-old's contract expires at the end of the season and it is reported that he will not be offered the chance to stay on.

Seeing Redfearn depart would be disappointing enough for many Leeds supporters, but if Allen does turn out to be his replacement then there is set to be uproar, judging by the reaction on social media site Twitter.

Leeds supporters are almost unanimous in thinking that Allen would be a poor choice of boss and they are fearful of what could happen if he is placed in charge. 

Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans to the rumours that Allen could be being lined up to take over from Redfearn.
