It's normal for a new manager to cause some unrest, particularly if they are replacing a long serving, extremely popular, incumbent.
No one likes change and no one likes insecurity. Our players are used to Mick, who they trusted and who trusted them, who very rarely criticised them and with whom they knew exactly where they stood.
PH has a far more abrasive style, is happy to call out players who he feels aren't performing and is much quicker to drop those players, regardless of their status in the squad.
The senior pros are bound to be a little disconcerted, they are well out of their comfort zone. I'm sure, with hindsight, PH would have handled things slightly differently too.
However, these players are paid extremely well to represent our club and, now more than ever, we need them to step up and show some minerals. Second half last night was a good start.

Putting lots of pressure on the ref at every opportunity too.
I fear the worst there.

Slightly bizarre and extremely tinpot.
I wouldn't have been happy if I was one of them lot, they were in the ascendancy too.

I defended our fans to anyone who would listen. Every club has idiots after all, and ours are no worse than anyone else's.
However, the blubbing on here this week has me starting to doubt.
As a fanbase we wanted change, it had gone stale, we knew it was a bit of a risk but we were willing to sacrifice grinding safety for something a bt more edgy. Now we've got what we asked for. We have a young manager, attempting to introduce a completely new style with a completely new team.
But because we've lost 2 games (2 games ffs!) the knives are out again.
Of course performances and results have been disappointing but nowhere near as disappointing as seeing the bedwetting on here.
Maybe Mick had it right all along.

Bit of an odd one, thought he was one of the best players in the league last year, amazed Wolves have let him go, unless I'm missing something?
Big statement of intent from Leeds.

I'll be quite happy to finish lower midtable.
Young players that want the ball trying to play passing football and, most importantly of all, taking the game to the opposition is all I really want. The passive nature of our play over the last 2 seasons is what has frustrated me most and this was the polar opposite of that. GET INTO THEM!
We won't win every game, sometimes we'll be caught out, but if we play on the front foot like that I'll be happy to go every week.

But that was really, really encouraging.
So refreshing to see us aggressively pressing the opposition and then looking comfortable in possession when we won the ball.
Great tempo and great to watch.
Bring on Blackburn!

At the impudence of an American President telling us how to run our country?
Either that or he's a hypocritical, mealy-mouthed, self-serving, slimy, dog whistling c0ckwomble.
