Jabba's Comments

David O'Leary was a giant of a player for Arsenal and Ireland. With over 700 games for the Highbury side, he holds their appearance record, and despite a falling out with Jack Charlton for a time, he played a central role in the Republic's rise in international football, and nobody could not have been impressed when the centre half stepped up to convert a vital penalty in the World Cup Finals that took Ireland through to the next phase. His time at Leeds as a player was short: just 10 appearances in a 9 month stint, but it's clear that Leeds fans will remember O'Leary the manager much better than O'Leary the player.

Rituraj Chakrabarti says: I am a Leeds fan from Kolkata,India and have desperately tried to write to O'Leary or to anyone in the Leeds team but without success. I want to wish David O'Leary the very best for his great job with the club. I hope Leeds wins the Premier League this year. I would love any fan of the club to write to me. I feel it was unfortunate to draw on Sunday with Leicester but with Liverpool losing to Chelsea I think Leeds will soon go to the top spot. All the best.

Shaun says: I like to add that David is the one that got leeds back agmonst the big clubs. The club made a huge mistke on getting rid of him. But am sure they will learn from it. They must have,with out laughing. Thats why were 4 points above the drop zone. Clever Mr Risdale very clever

Alan Bruce says: o'leary is an adequate manager, but was never likely to take leeds to the a player he was average and it seems this mediocrity has spilled over into managment!!lets try eddy gray ??

Emily says: I think David O'leary is so good looking and cute.

Shaqer Rasheed says: David O'Leary is the best manager in English football. I fell in love with the Leeds United side he built, with Bowyer driving the midfield and Kewell and Viduka upfront. The manager cut an almost napoleonic figure from the touchline. Good luck David. Aston Villa is so lucky to have a manager like you. You have shown that you can do without the money. You should manage a continental club some day.

Nayil Kalla says: That's Nayil Kalla (from Mauritius) : My dad's absolutely fanatical about Leeds United since 1969. So much so that he got litterally exaperated to see DOL on the Mauritian TV a few monts ago when the latter visited the country. Leeds was dommed for second division then.
