Editor-in-Chief Ryan Ingham takes a look at the recent rumours that David Moyes could be the next in line for the hotseat at Elland Road.
The Daily Mirror yesterday has claimed that Leeds could be set for ANOTHER new manager if Steve Parkin's buyout of the club is true and actually happens. Recent reports suggest that Parkin is said to be very interested in handing former toffees boss David Moyes the entrusted role of bringing the club back to the big time.
Known for his stints in the movie remake of J.R.R Tolkien's famous Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy, Moyes has struggled to keep a job down since Hollywood and now Gollum won't even be able to afford a ring, unless it's from Warren James.
The question isn't when, but why? Yes Moyes has seen somewhat success with clubs including Preston and Everton and then not including Scum or Sociedad. Granted that Moyes arriving at Elland Road is a coupe, but for who? Let's face it, Moyes currently possesses less silverware than Steve Evans.
My issue isn't with the man, it's with if it's the right fit for Leeds. Moyes is a very talented manager and did have a very successful stint at Preston with a win percentage of 48.29% and one promotion and one playoff final to boast. His time at Everton for me was a varied yoyo timeline where the club could be challenging for a champions league place one season and then the next just escape relegation, I fear he could do the same for Leeds United.
We've all seen that Moyes has struggled with the high pressure jobs like that sh*thole over the Pennines or his recent stint in Spain. The weight of expectation has weighed heavy on his shoulders for the past two jobs and the turbulent position at Leeds United is no easier. Moyes would have to win over the crowd while keeping up performances at Elland Road and that's not an easy task to handle.
I'm not saying I wouldn't have Moyes and I aren't even saying that Steve Evans is a godsend, but I will say after his recent results I'm not willing to let him go just yet.
