When it all stacks up, the numbers show Leeds were heading backwards under TC

Another new Leeds manager has been announced today with Paul Heckingbottom arriving from Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.

The Whites have seen plenty of managers try their hand in recent years and none have really stayed too long with Massimo Cellino often getting trigger happy.

Andrea Radrizzani has seen off two managers so far, though, but he’ll surely be looking for ‘Hecky’ to be long term and to be fair, the numbers from Thomas Christiansen’s reign suggest the club was going backwards.

In our latest FLW Duels piece, we take a look at Garry Monk’s record at the club compared to TC’s, and it is clear that the former had the better time with the Whites:

Obviously comparing number of wins and things like that has limitations due to different numbers of games being played but TC was nearing the same amount of losses in far fewer fixtures.

Meanwhile, the two stats that really matter – win % and points per game – both fall in Monk’s favour with him taking the club so close to a top six finish to only fall by the way side late on.

TC, though taking Leeds to the top at points and on long unbeaten runs, leaves the club a good few points outside of the top six and Heckingbottom needs to sort that.

There was a reason many were disappointed Monk left when he did and though all have moved on now, it’s clear that they’ve not progressed much since the former Swans man was in charge.
