Leeds ruin good work by hiring Bassett?

Posted by

Leeds have done some good work with public relations this season, going months without being associated with their usual evil-doing. No Revie-esque cheating, no Lee Bowyer, no expensive fishtanks. Come on guys, a whole season of glorious news, almost there… oh no. Here we go again:

“Leeds manager Dennis Wise has gone back to his Crazy Gang days at Wimbledon to recruit his former boss Dave Bassett as his new assistant at Elland Road. Bassett has agreed to take on the role until the end of the season and will join up with the team tomorrow ahead of Saturday’s trip to leaders Carlisle.”

This comes from the Daily Mail, the only publication that are more horrible than Bassett’s football. Get ready to crane those necks Leeds fans because those clearances are going to be high and hopeful from now on.

Leeds are still one of the stores of the season so hopefully the Poyet-Bassett switch won’t cost them.
