Well, at least one former Leeds legend is impressed with Christiansen.

Eddie Gray told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he likes TC and wants him to stay, saying,

The season started well but I think they are suffering from a lack of confidence just now.

They have had a few defeats and you can see when they go a goal down that they get a little bit frustrated and I think a little bit of frustration is creeping in as well with things not going right for them

I think the players are capable of hanging in there but whether they are capable of hanging in there with the top teams remains to be seen.

As jumpy as everyone is right now with the loss of form in the team, sacking TC now would be a bit premature, and honestly, Cellino did that all the time, and where exactly did that get Leeds?

Also, with the international break, seriously, go out and support a local Non-League side if you can. Can’t beat the prices, and you’ll be helping to support community football in West Yorkshire.
