Editor-in-chief Ryan Ingham takes a look at Steve Evans' latest comments to the press and how it bodes for his Leeds United career.
After the harrowing defeat at Brighton it seemed all but certain that Steve Evans would be the next in a long line of managers to be sacked by enigmatic owner Massimo Cellino.
The situation got worse when Evans was informed that under no circumstances was he allowed to speak to the press after the defeat at the Amex, instructing him to get on the bus and f*** off home.
As much as I despise the corrupt Italian who controls our club, this move I am fully behind. Shutting Evans' pie-guzzling apparatus will no doubt stop him from yammering on about new contracts and unsettling the squad with his lapse judgement of their talent.
The club is in crisis right now, we're only 9 points adrift from the relegation and have only picked up one solitary win in 11 league matches. If we carry on with this form, Cellino will get his wish of owning a Leeds side that wins promotion, but it'll be from League One and God knows when.
Today Evans' leash was taken off and his pre-match press conference shows everything but the fact that he's no longer in a love stricken relationship with Cellino.
Speaking to the press, Evans said; "I am no longer going to be a PR advert for people above me, they have to do that for themselves."
This clearly shows that the days of Evans being Cellino's puppet and propaganda machine are fully over. Maybe the stitching has come lose where Massimo's hand used to be.
Another revelation came after Evans openly admitted that the contract talks that he had claimed were happening between Leeds youngsters Lewis Cook, Alex Mowatt and Charlie Taylor were false. Evans stated that the claims were because it's what he wishes were happening and that he will not be included in any negotiations that take place.
This comes after Cellino spoke out to Sky Sports on why the manager was not allowed to speak after the Brighton game, claiming he speaks too much on new contracts and players, not focussing on what's important.
It seems that Mummy and Daddy aren't on speaking terms right now and if anyone will be keeping the house, I'm sure it won't be Evans.
In consolation, Evans may be able to keep his long time dog and companion Paul Raynor should a split happen. Mans best friend as they say.
As for Cellino, I think it's time he finds a new Ferrari and lets this one go. He's give it to many scratches and his midlife crisis is taking a toll on all of us.
