Brian McDermott: Felt Leeds should have got something from game

Hayden Mullins netted the only goal 19 minutes from time and the new Elland Road manager said: "I thought we should have got something out of the game.

"When it was 0-0 we were on top and then they scored from nothing.

"When I arrived at the club I put my reputation on the line and to make sure Leeds remained in this division. So far, as I am concerned, it is job done.

"Everyone must be going in the same direction. If that occurs at this club you have a major chance.

"I think we have to talk about who needs to come in. If we can add to the squad with good quality players we should progress.

"Leeds were in trouble when I came in. I am delighted with the boys. They played two games at home and we won them both. They were pressure games."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
