Dennis Wise becomes Leeds United's fifth manager in four years this morning. It is difficult to imagine a harder job in football. Exactly six years ago, the club drew with Barcelona in the Champions League. Last night they were humbled by Southend.
The fall from grace has been staggering and Wise had the good sense to offer only a low-key bow to a set of fans who have been decidedly underwhelmed by his appointment. The reality check came in the viewing. The new manager watched from an executive box in a stadium that was barely a quarter full. The temptation must have been to head back down the M1 with his No2 Gus Poyet and return to the safety of Swindon Town.
Even David Geddis, the Leeds manager for the evening - their third of the season - questioned the desire of a team in freefall. "Players have to start performing and taking responsibility," he said afterwards. "Anyone coming into this club with confidence this low faces a massive job."
