Alleged interference in team selection and tactics have been dominating debate among the Leeds United faithful.

It seems that all the media stories are now about Massimo Cellino interfering in team selection and tactcis.

The first three (Leeds United) articles in the paper (YEP) refer to this.

I fear that Steve Evans (the Leeds United head coach) is now on dodgy ground and his position is becoming untenable.

If we lose at Wolves I think he has one more game and if that’s a loss he will be out.

I think Wolves’ pacy wingers will run riot against Scott Wootton tonight and I can’t see us getting anything from the game.

Tuesday’s results went against us and when you look at the table it is not good.

If we lose the next two games we could be in the cart by Christmas.

Statement set for an early test

That statement (head coach Steve Evans insisting he picks the Leeds United team, not president Massimo Cellino) will be tested (against Wolves) when he selects the right-back.

Will it be Scott Wootton or Sam Byram?

If he is doing his job properly and selecting the best team available to him, it will be Byram.

But if he plays the commitment card it will be Wootton.

Byram is contracted to the club until June 2016; his commitment should not be questioned.

It remains for the club to offer the lad a contract that demonstrates their commitment to him. I personally think Evans was appointed on the basis that the president could influence team selection. There is nothing in his CV that would support or endorse his appointment as a manager of a so-called big club.

I realised how deluded he is when he claimed that Leeds annihilated Charlton on Saturday. Apart from gilt-edged chances that were missed, the Charlton keeper didn’t have a save to make, whereas Marco Silvestri kept Leeds in the game with some great saves.

Our ‘bad press’ is just sickening

I’m sick and tired of this stupid scenario being rammed in our faces day in day out (who picks the Leeds United side: Steve Evans or Massimo Cellino?).

Evans is no fool and I do not beleive he would tolerate this for one minute. Put it to bed and start being positive for crying out loud. All we get is bad press and it’s sickening.
