FOOTBALL: BRASSED OFF LEEDS FANS CHANT FOR O'LEARY.
It was Venables' fifth loss in ten Premiership games and his side have scored just four times in seven matches.
Jeering at the end of the game - settled by Salif Diao's second half strike - followed calls for O'Leary and for David Batty, who has been left languishing in the reserves by Venables. "It's a nice name to chant," smiled El Tel, trying to shrug off the latest unrest.
"There will always be discontent among the fans when we are not getting results. But we deserved better today and I cannot really fault the performance.
"I'll do what I think is right - if that is good enough, only time will tell." While Leeds languish in mid-table, this time last year they were flying high and remained unbeaten until early November. They were even top of the table at the start of 2002.
Ironically, O'Leary will meet Leeds directors tomorrow ... in the first round of what promises to be a bitter dispute over compensation payment for his dismissal.#
