Oh boy, Pablo is gone, isn’t he?

Paul Heckingbottom said in his press conference today that Pablo Hernandez “could have had his head turned” when asked about the status of the Spaniard’s new contract.

If Hernandez goes back to Spain, I don’t think anyone will blame him. If Hernandez goes to a Championship high-flier or a Premier League team that offers him a big contract, I think that the fans will be upset with the ownership for not matching the wages. If Hernandez goes to Birmingham City to join up with Garry Monk, then I think that Leeds fans will likely go into open revolt.

Stock up on pitchforks and torches and be ready to sell them outside Elland Road is all I’m saying.

On to the links.
