Fascinating interview. He was a cocky bastard, right enough, but brutally straightforward, much too much so for the tight-knit group he inherited at Leeds. Much of what he was saying to Frost made sense and he seemed wise beyond his years. I liked his remarks about unemployment casting a shadow of fear on anyone who suffers it, about balance between stick and praise in dealing with players, about getting things out in the open, about not letting your job take over your life.
Given that he and the Don both came out of the wrong end of 'Boro, it's always surprised me that they weren't more matey. I suppose shared background only has part to do with who you become.
