COP GUARD FOR WILKO.
Graham's one-year ban for taking a bung ends in June and the man who led Arsenal to six trophies in eight years is in demand.
Leeds see him as the man to stop the rot that has set in under Wilkinson.
Wilko took savage stick yesterday - police had to move in to throw out supporters giving him hell after the 4-1 defeat at Chelsea.
Angry fans surrounded the Leeds dugout, hurling abuse which stunned rival boss Glenn Hoddle.
"No-one should have to put up with that and I told our security men to make sure Howard was okay," said Hoddle.
The hostile reception left Wilko white-faced with shock. But he recovered his composure to face the press later on - and managed a smile.
And he gave the clearest indication yet he's had enough of the aggro and is set to walk away.
"I'm going to leave here now and spend tomorrow looking back on this game," he said.
"After that I will turn my attention to the future and decide what the next few weeks hold."
If the players are concerned about Wilko's welfare they made a good job of hiding it - turning in the sort of inept performance that gets managers the sack.
