Sports letter: Front-running Ron
Wednesday 07 October 1998
Amid all the speculation over who should replace George Graham as Leeds United manager, I find it peculiar that one name has not been mentioned. Already a winner of one of this season's "manager of the month" awards, he has made an excellent start to his career in management and his team have quickly established themselves as promotion favourites.
So why don't Leeds make their move for the manager of Brentford? Could it be that they fear the chairman and owner of Brentford (Mr Ron Noades) might refuse them permission to speak to their manager (Mr Ron Noades)? Or maybe Mr Noades (owner) might refuse to inform Mr Noades (manager) of the approach. Even worse, he might insist that Leeds pay him compensation before he allows them to speak to himself, if you see what I mean.
