'Please be true', 'Our equivalent of Lambert' - Leeds fans react to major Heckingbottom news
Leeds United are set to wield the axe by parting ways with Paul Heckingbottom and fans believe that it’s a decision that needs to be followed through.
Football Insider exclusively broke the news and revealed that a shortlist of replacements is being drawn up.
Heck only arrived at the club in February following the sacking of Paul Heckingbottom, but has managed only two wins since taking charge of affairs, against Brentford and Bolton Wanderers.
And it would seem that enough is enough for the Leeds United board with this latest news.
It’s perhaps not surprising that results haven’t gone the way of the Yorkshire club given that the former Barnsley manager was hardly pulling up any trees at the Tykes, despite a good season the year before.
Exactly how attractive a proposition Leeds are for a would-be manager is speculative.

With little stability at the club, shown by the lack of faith shown by Andrea Radrizzani, you’d have to say that the Whites are fast becoming a club which is more damaging to reputation than anything else.
Where is the incentive for a big-name to come in and take this dormant club to the heights of the Premier League?
Here is what Leeds fans had to say on social media about the news:
Please be true

Hecky feels like our equivalent of Lambert. Someone to hold the fort while the ducks are put in a row.

They aren’t TC’s players though are they, they’re all sighted out and signed by Victor Orta. Both PH and Orta should go in my opinion

TC should have been given the season

He shouldn’t be here anyway I don’t think TC should’ve been sacked
