101 days of Cellino at Leeds

It is 101 days since controversial Italian Massimo Cellino took over at Leeds United - and it certainly hasn't been dull!

He has sacked manager Brian McDermott, appointed a little-known replacement, lost a star player and captain..and started raiding the Italian transfer market to build a new team; and he's promised to get rid of the club's Thorp Arch training base, and buy back Elland Road.
