Thanks mate appreciate you guys good wishes and thanks very much. One of those days that seemed to be a long and then even a bit longer but that's the waiting around of course. But I'm a hospital worker so pretty much what we've all come to expect. Cheers guys.

So, do we think Jansson had got a bit complacent? Thought he was a cert to start every game and wasn't showing the right level of commitment? Certainly seems to me like what Monk was delivering was a kick up the proverbial

Probably a misdemeanor, late to training/team meeting. Monk was just on talksport (9.25am) and it didn't come up.

Can't accuse Jansson's performances on the pitch, he & his defenders around him worked their socks off under constant pressure in the Birmingham/Fulham aways in between the two home games where we kept two clean sheets

I read it was an altercation with a couple of players + two staff involved on the training pitch which led to the disciplinary action taken by Monk. Anyway Pontus has apologised so hopefully all is rosy at ER now

Not pointing a finger at this performances, Leon, just wondered if he maybe wasn't putting it in during training. Anyway, if what you've heard is true, it would appear Monk has nipped it in the bud.

Sounds like a well run camp. Step out of line and Monk reminds them no one is too big to drop. Sounds healthy to me.

Thank god he has :-D he certainly doesn't suffer fools gladly

I hope Monk is given the time to develope into one of the great Leeds managers of all-time, he's made an impressive start in his short managerial time at ER

He has a bit to go, Leon, but I've been very impressed with how he goes about things. If the board back him, and he's left alone to get on with things, there's no reason why he can't do great things at our club

I assume you are thinking from :

Revie
Armfield
Wilko
Graham
O'Leary
or
Grayson :|

Clough & Stein achieve great things but not with Leeds

Monk would need to achieve considerable success to match Revie & Wilko or even Jimmy who got us to a European Cup Final. Can't see anyone coming close to Don's achievements !

Would need to get us in the Champions League to match O'Leary

Either way a tough ask for Monk
