    A friend suggested it may have been Olympic rules, where you can have two over players over 23. Maybe McCarthy was getting back to fitness and needed game time or something

    An excellent choice were it to happen. He has pretty much had a magic wand wherever he has gone.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    You probably need a fistful of magic wands at Leeds. Its been a basket case of a club for quite a while now.........but it has potential....... maybe baby.

    Do well for three months.

    Lose two games.

    Get sacked.

    Back at square one.

    Probably a better option out there - a shame he's never managed at a higher level than the third tier (I think?) though. Maybe there's a reason for that, but he seems to have done reasonably well at his various clubs in the past.

    He was born 20 years too early. He'd have made a packet in today's game and wouldn't have to go from town to town all over the UK to earn a crust.

    His managerial statistics are excellent when you consider that by and large he took over teams when struggling at the wrong end of the lower reaches of the English leagues Total G490 W189 D132 L169

    I don't think it'd work out well. I've huge admiration for Sheridan and am a Leeds supporter I should clarify.

    Leeds don't deserve a manager of his calibre. Better put - a manager of his calibre deserves better than what's on offer at Leeds which is essentially no more than the opportunity to attempt CV rehabilitation (which Sheridan scarcely needs incidently) while his coaching badges are being used to validate the actions of a lunatic owner who's attempting to proxy manage a football team from the shadows.

    Steve Evans needed that opportunity at career rehab and I've gone from considering him a bumbling idiot to believing him to be an honourable man working under impossible conditions. I don't think he's good enough to manage Leeds and the I believe the main reason he wasn't sacked was Cellino can't afford to have any more ex-managers on gardening leave (as Milanic recently revealed he still is). But under the current regime Leeds deserve no better. I wish Evans well wherever he ends up.

    John Sheridan would do well to avoid Elland Road til Cellino jogs on.

    That's pretty underwhelming isn't it? He's actually dropped a division. Must be some reason he took it, financial?

    I remember reading something a few years ago about Notts County being statistically the most frustrating team to support in the football league!

    I'd say that must be the other Magpies, Newcastle. They even won an FA Cup in 1894 (don't really recall it - was only a young lad at the time).

    Probably too strong a phrase "sleeping giant" but potentially a Championship club. Graham Burke is there but not a great conversion rate for a striker (looking at his Wikipedia stats).https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Burke

    It's actually from a lot further back than I realised but here it is.

    The stress-inducing factors the surveyors took into account included: narrowly missing out on promotion and relegation; regular failure to win at home; losing matches from a winning position; losing in play-offs; financial problems leading to uncertainty over a club's future; changes in ownership; and frequent changes of manager.

    Two posts in succession stating that he has been sacked from different jobs The official line was that he left "by mutual consent".That statement always reminds me of a conversation between my mother and one of my brothers. "Why aren't you going to work?". Response: "I don't have a job any more." Mother: "You were sacked !!??" Brother (indignantly) "I wasn't sacked. I was asked to leave".

    Sheridan was at the Sheffield derby yesterday (with Chris Waddle). He's had in ups and downs (literally) as a manager in the lower leagues but never managed to make that leap to a higher level. Shame.

    What a weird move. Carlisle in the play-offs in League Two in their fifth year in that division. Looks like he was doing alright there?
