Former Leeds goalkeeper Paul Robinson believes his old club have hired the perfect man for the job in Sam Allardyce.
The wily 68-year-old has just four games to keep the Whites afloat in the Premier League, starting with a challenging trip to champions Manchester City on Saturday.
Yet Robinson, 43, has full faith in his former boss to make a quick impact in West Yorkshire.
He explained: "Allardyce is the best man-manager I have ever worked for — probably the best manager I have ever worked for.
"He gets a lot of disrespect because of the stigma around his style of play, but let's not forget this man was once thought of as good enough to be an England manager.
"His track record speaks for itself in keeping teams in this league. With this Leeds team, they need organisation, they need setting up right, they need pointing in the right direction.
"If Sam can bring everyone together, his leadership and man management qualities are what is needed at Leeds.
"In all honesty he should have had the job when Javi Gracia got the job."
Everton boss Sean Dyche was encouraged by Dominic Calvert-Lewin's performance in the Toffees' 2-2 draw at Leicester.
England international Calvert-Lewin, 26, has been plagued by injuries this term and was making just his 12th start of the Premier League campaign against the Foxes.
The No9 netted his first goal since last October from the penalty spot and Dyche, 51, was left feeling upbeat by the striker's overall contribution.
He said: "Players come back in different ways from injury. I thought Dom put in a real physical shift.
"His movement for the penalty and other movements were good. He looked freer, since I've been here it is the freest I've seen him."
The Merseysiders will still be without Amadou Onana and Ben Godfrey for their trip to high-flying Brighton on Monday evening.
Jose Mourinho wore a mirophone to "protect himself" from referee Daniele Chiffi during Roma's 1-1 draw with Monza last night.
The ex-Chelsea boss, 60, has been sent off three times in Serie A this season for disputes with match officials, the first of which was dished out by Chiffi last September.
And after Zeki Celic was sent off by the same official in yesterday's frustrating stalemate, Mourinho ensured every word between himself and Chiffi was on the record.
He told reporters: "I went to the game with a microphone. I recorded everything.
"From the moment I left the locker room to the moment I returned, I protected myself. He [Cheffi] is the worst. Technically he's horrible. Zero empathy. Zero communication. Zero awareness.
"A second yellow to a guy who slips in the 96th minute? I stopped working 20-30 minutes from the end because I knew he would give me a red card for anything.
"I didn't give him the opportunity, I decided no, that's enough."
The result leaves Mourinho's side seventh in the Italian top flight, outside of the European qualification spots on goal difference.
Laura Wienroither has become the FOURTH Arsenal player to rupture her ACL this season.
Austrian defender Wienroither, 24 joins team-mates Beth Mead, Vivianne Miedema and Leah Williamson on the sidelines having each suffered the same season-ending injury.
A statement by the club read: "We can confirm that Laura Wienroither suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in our match against Wolfsburg at Emirates Stadium on Monday evening.
"Laura was substituted in the 82nd minute of our UEFA Women's Champions League semi-final and has subsequently undergone testing to determine the extent of the injury.
"Laura will undergo surgery in due course and will be sidelined for an extended period.
"Everyone at the club will now be supporting Laura and working hard to support her recovery and return to action."
