McLeish Set For Return

McLeish Set For Return

Former Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish is now the favourite to take over the Huddersfield Town job and join Blues in the Sky Bet Championship.

McLeish lead Birmingham to their highest league position in 50 years before going all the way to Wembley and winning the Carling Cup in 2011. Following relegation and some choice words from Mr Pannu, McLeish decided it was time to jump ship to Aston Villa.

Huddersfield are without a manager after he was sacked following an opening day defeat to Bournemouth, 4-0. Mark Robin`s successor should be in charge before the weekend.

In the meantime caretaker boss, Mark Lillis, has managed two wins and a defeat in his time in charge.

I'll always respect the guy, don't think he deserved the bad rap he got for leaving.

Totally agree, on the season we went down we was close to signing Odemwingie and Dembele, but Carson pulled out. Then at Villa he sold their two best players and he only got a budget of 13M. Then at Forest he got denied by the owner in singing Chris Burke and George Boyd.

He was the one who spotted Odemwingie and Dembele

He was a great manager for the blues. He wrongly prioritised the cup over the league in my opinion though!

Plus he went to Villa!! Can a man ever be forgiven for that?!

Don't think there was much prioritising really, we played full strength teams in both competitions. The cup run injured Johnson, Zigic etc. Fans would of killed him if he rested top players once we got to the quarter final and beyond.
