Barnsley or Leeds United. Oakwell or Elland Road. Surely there’s only 1 choice. #lufc #mot
I think Paul Heckingbottom is a smart appointment by #LUFC. Knows the division well and has proved he can survive in it on a small budget. Who know what he can achieve with a bit more funding?
Great appointment this I feel, young head coach who did wonders at a club who had little resource, now time to step up #lufc
Heckingbottom has an incredibly tough task with the fixture list and depleted squad at his disposal. He will need time to get feet under the table. On a positive he should know the championship very well. #lufc
New gaffer. We have what the majority wanted. Experienced at this level. Young, british, passionate. Lets get behind him from day 1 and see if we can chase the playoff pack that looked to be sliding out of reach #LUFC
Don’t agree with the appointment but hoping to be proved wrong. #mot #lufc #alaw
A warm welcome to THE Yorkshire club to the most Yorkshire-sounding manager in the game, Paul Heckingbottom. Next stop the @premierleague please, Mr H #lufc #MOT
Although it’s admittedly hard to get excited about... I’m quietly optimistic about this appointment. Play offs are gone for me this year regardless of who came in but solid foundations to be laid for next season. Hopefully a few u-23s emerge in latter half of the season. #lufc
