Paul Heckingbottom wants Leeds to be higher up in the table.

Um, Hecky? We all want Leeds to be higher up in the table. All of us.

Not really sure that the results will get any better anytime soon, unless Heckingbottom can magically get the defence playing better and Felix Wiedwald from letting in sloppy goals. Oh, and if he could get the offence playing better as well, that’d be great.

It’s not fair to judge Heckingbottom after only a few weeks in charge, but if he a “youth team whisperer” then by god, let’s see what the kids can do, alright?
