'Where you should be' – With Leeds set to sack Heck, fans want one man back at Elland Road
Paul Heckingbottom is set to face the sack in a shock move from Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani.
After being brought in to replace Thomas Christiansen, everyone assumed that Heckingbottom would get next season to prove himself at Elland Road.
However, as Football Insider revealed on Wednesday morning, Leeds have made the call to get rid of him, with the only decision remaining whether to do it immediately or at the end of the season.
That will come as a shock to Leeds fans but most will be happy with the decision after questioning his credentials at the time of his appointment, and watching him record just two wins since he’s been in charge across 12 Championship games.
The form has been wretched and it looks like Leeds have seen enough and Football Insider claims that the club is already drawing up a shortlist of names to replace Heckingbottom.
However, there’s one man that fans would love to see back at Elland Road – Simon Grayson.

Grayson has already enjoyed one spell at Elland Road, when he took the club up to the Championship from League One.
And Leeds fans would love to see him back.
Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans after liking what they heard Grayson say about his current side Bradford at the weekend:
Simon. Come back to ER, that where you should be.

I won’t be getting a season ticket next season. Neither will my brother. I’ve always thought of going to see us as a “treat”.. something to enjoy. I haven’t “enjoyed” a Leeds game since Grayson was in charge.

However, not all Leeds fans think the same way, with one saying Grayson would just dig a bigger hole for the club.
#lufc I've just seen on my Google timeline that Leeds fans are calling for the return of Simon Grayson. ???? Spade, hole, dig deeper
