On Tuesday evening I was a third of the way through my usual 'no pain, no gain' session at the gym and my Twitter time line exploded. The news of Steve Evans' sacking had broke.
An official statement from the club was released thanking the Scotsman for his efforts. However, we were informed that his contract wouldn't be renewed for the 2016/17 season.
Everybody knows Steve wasn't everybody's first choice to replace Uwe Rosler, he probably wasn't their last one either. But through the hard miles he eventually won over most of the fans that follow this once mighty football team.
His tenure wasn't without critics, myself included. Mainly due to some poor post match comments and some line ups he regularly 'tinkered' with.
One thing he definitely got right was the fact he 'conjured' something more out of the squad he'd inherited from Rosler.
An arm around the shoulder may have just been what Luke Murphy needed to improve his performances on both the training field and playing field. I mention Murphy, but plenty of others benefited from the change of Head Coach.
We eventually climbed out of the bottom end of the Championship table with three wins, including; Preston, Cardiff and Blackburn Rovers away. This virtually guaranteed that we were safe although none of the wins weren't without a scare along the way.
Around this time there was a feeling that just maybe the top ten was achievable, but a few defeats put paid to that idea.
In the end, the picture of him doing the Leeds salute with tears in his eyes showed everybody that he wanted to continue the job into next season.
Alas, Mr Cellino had other ideas. Robinson of MK Dons didn't fancy it, Clarke at Bristol Rovers stayed put with an increase in wages and ex-Leeds player John Sheridan chose to leave Oldham Athletic and join Notts County.
Where does that leave Leeds United and it's long suffering fans? Not surprisingly, the announcement was made after the first deadline for season tickets had passed.
There seems to be a front runner at this current time; step forward out of work Gary Monk. He was released by Swansea City last year after a poor run of results, but in his overall time at the club many pundits believed he had the chips to cut it in the Premier League.
He certainly has good credentials for the role and was an impressive centre back in his playing days, one area of our team that certainly needs improving.
If Monk does decide to indeed take the job it may be an area where he starts the recruitment. Bringing in a new model for the defence has to happen otherwise a new season of underachieving is going to happen in 16/17.
For the first time in nearly seventeen years I've purchased a season ticket, albeit it with another fan Bob Turnbull, it's still a leap of faith on my part.
There needs to be a period of stability and whoever the next HC is, he needs to be given time to build a team that eventually can challenge for the top six. The target our enigmatic owner keeps staring he is aiming for.
We wait to see what happens next.
