|I never get tired of this picture, I admit it wouldn't be funny if he'd broken his legs, but he didn't so it is.|
|Along with the lateral balls, definitely felt like the long out ball was used more often than recently|
|Leon's passing (left), simple but effective. Leon also had the most ball recoveries as he has the knack of being in the right place at the right time|

Ultimately results drive attitudes, I doubt Laudrup's approach changed much over his tenure, but what's considered calm and relaxed when you're winning is considered lazy when results aren't great (and it doesn't help when your closest associate calls the chairman a liar and you say it's nothing to do with you).
Huw Jenkins obviously felt it had gone far enough and felt a clean start was best rather than dragging it out over the next few months, but that shouldn't overshadow the good times. Laudrup had a chequered CV before he joined us but everyone was doing cartwheels when he joined. He's still got a chequered CV but also a trophy and will probably make another club very happy for 12-18 months or so.
