Revealed: 60% of voters would rather have Barnsley man over Leeds United figure



Here at FLW we love a good debate, and with some intriguing fixtures in the Sky Bet Championship coming up this weekend, we want to learn more about the opinion of our followers on Twitter.

One crucial clash in the Championship this weekend comes at Oakwell, with Barnsley entertaining Leeds United in a Yorkshire derby.

We wanted to know who our followers would rather have in-charge of their club, Barnsley’s, Paul Heckingbottom, who has helped the Tykes establish themselves in the Championship over the last 18 months, or Thomas Christiansen, who has endured a mixed start to life with Leeds.

60% of our voters in our poll went for Heckingbottom, who has earned himself the reputation of one of the Championship’s finest young managers, after helping Barnsley to safety last season and overseeing a positive start this year.

Just 40% of votes went to Christiansen, who was appointed at Elland Road over the summer.

So far this season, Leeds have endured mixed form, starting the season magnificently, before a miserable run over the last two months has seen them slide down the Championship table.

Who would you prefer at your club? Heckingbottom or Christiansen? Let us know thoughts!
