Blackwell Discloses Pressure Of Leeds Hot Seat

Last updated : 07 August 2007 By Kevin Markey
Blackwell took Leeds to within 90 minutes of a return to the Barclays Premier League in May last year before being sacked by Ken Bates the following September.

Blackwell said: "I don't think I was too nice at Leeds, I think sometimes you just accept things people say to you at face value.

"Sometimes football has a habit of destroying your confidence in human beings at times because you take people at face value, and want to, and sometimes that doesn't come off."
