Typical, I turn my back for a second, courtesy of a private engagement, only to return to the fold and discover that Leeds United and yet another manager have parted company.
This time around though, I’m not too surprised that the axe has fallen on Paul Heckingbottom who took on the role back in February.
Heckingbottom’s far from impressive record of just 4 wins in 16 games was never going to convince the Leeds United hierarchy that his tenure was going to be a long one and that the 40-year-old was destined to bring the glory days back to Elland Road.
But, whilst I wasn’t surprised that the axe has fallen, what was the reaction on the ever-evolving world of social media?
Taking time out to flick through numerous tweets, I’ve selected a couple that caught my eye.
It’s now only 6 Leeds Managers to Christmas

Now I have to admit, that one made me chuckle.
Does that mean we’re getting Zidane? Bit of a coincidence that he quit RM and Leeds sack Heckingbottom a couple of days later?!

Now that would be some appointment, but, unfortunately, very unlikely.
But, flicking through the numerous tweets, it’s hard to find one that doesn’t support the axing with the one below being typical of those doing the rounds:
I could not be happier about it mate he was a terrible manager!

But, given the choice, who would you like to be given the opportunity to lead our famous club out of the Championship wilderness and into the promised land that is the Premier League?
Please feel free to drop your choice into the comments facility beneath this article, it’d be appreciated.
