 Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has been disqualified by the Football League and asked to resign from the club.

The Football League took the decision after obtaining documents from an Italian court, where Cellino was found guilty of tax evasion.

It believes Cellino has breached its "fit and proper" ownership test.

However, he will be entitled to return to the club from 18 March 2015 and can appeal against the League's ruling.

Uwe Rosler has been sacked after 12 games in charge.

His exit leaves Leeds looking for a sixth head coach since Massimo Cellino took over the club 18 months ago.

Italian Cellino sacked 36 head coaches in his 22 years in charge of Cagliari.

Number six looks like it will be Steve Evans.

Haha.

I was in the away end on Saturday, mental scenes Bobby scoring in front of us. Fell down a row and bruises all over.

Leeds need a reliable manager in the mould of hughton, got some decent players, cook, wood, new guy from Dutch league, Buckley will also be good when match fit.

Why would a "reliable" manager ever go there?

For a decent pay off on a 3 year contract knowing you are only going to have to work 6 months max.  Looks a dream job to me.  Total freeroll for the gaffer.  You have a shot to take leeds to the promised land (albeit unlikely) if you make it you are the hero of all heroes.  If you don't then you get a decent pay off and get back on the manager merry go round for another similar job.  Any manager that doesn't take this huge freeroll is bonkers imo.  There is no downside to your rep long term because of the owner no matter how bad you perform you can just blame the owner.

That assumes the Club will pay up, or have the means to.

For a decent pay off on a 3 year contract knowing you are only going to have to work 6 months max.  Looks a dream job to me.  Total freeroll for the gaffer.  You have a shot to take leeds to the promised land (albeit unlikely) if you make it you are the hero of all heroes.  If you don't then you get a decent pay off and get back on the manager merry go round for another similar job.  Any manager that doesn't take this huge freeroll is bonkers imo.  There is no downside to your rep long term because of the owner no matter how bad you perform you can just blame the owner.

Why wouldnt they ahve the means to?  Championship is one of the top leagues in the world nowadays wages wise.  Leeds are one of the 'lolbiggest' clubs in it crowd wise.  How would they be allowed in a court of law to not pay up if they signed a 3 year contract and choose to break it?

Aren't they employing managers on a rolling deal? In theory you're right it's a free roll think in practice they wouldn't attract anyone worthwhile whilst the current regime is in place

Why haven't Leeds got a shirt sponsor?  Kappa kit looks decent just surprised no sponsor.  Trying to think of a fatter gaffer in modern day top level english football than your new boss?  He was struggling to get into the tunnel from the dug out at .

I love the expression "lolbig", think that describes lots of the clubs in the championship.
