Leeds are probably still recovering from some significant upheaval over the summer, and it will be much later in the season before Daniel Farke can be judged on how well suited he is to the role of manager at Elland Road.
His mandate would have been straightforward: get us back into the Premier League at the first attempt.
The all-whites have a stadium that is right at home in the English top flight, if not a squad that can compete right now, but the latter will come in time if Farke is allowed to build freely.
The whims of a new owner/consortium have a direct effect on the first-team squad so often these days, and if 49ers Enterprises want success at the club, they’d do well to listen to their manager, who’s been there and bought the t-shirt in terms of getting promoted with a club from the Championship to the Premier League.
Max Wober, who is on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, is one player he has had to deal without so far this season.
The 25-year-old appears to be settling in nicely in the Bundesliga, and Rheinische Post (h/t Sport Witness) appears to have persuaded the club to make the loan deal permanent.
Even if that happens, Farke is unlikely to be pleased, despite the fact that he was the manager who sent Wober to Germany in the first place.
