Brian McDermott has been taken in by the Leeds fans as one of their own, there’s no doubt about that. There is a mutual understanding between the fans and himself at what he is trying to achieve at Leeds; it may not happen overnight but a road is already being paved long ahead of where we actually are at the present.
Daniel Howard and Matthew McKeith had the privilege of meeting the boss in person for a chat last Thursday. We say chat as we wouldn’t really call it an interview; Brian was very relaxed and open in speaking about the club but never centered it on what ‘he’ was doing, he stressed that it is a team effort here, he wants everyone to be together (the fact he doesn’t like closed doors says it all).
Whilst on the pitch we are still striving for consistency, off it we seem to have found a nice place in-between. I’m sure most of you would have seen a McDermott press conference in which he speaks with total control and you seem to believe every word he’s saying, he just comes across as a very likeable guy, something we managed to witness face to face.
It was a fantastic day for us at the website, our only regret is that we didn’t have time to ask the 400+ questions we received from the Twitter world from you our followers! We thank you for the tweets (some were extremely amusing) but unfortunately Brian just didn’t have all day.
