Brentford vs Leeds United live stream Saturday 27/9/2014
If new Leeds United manager Darko Milanic was searching for a bit of encouragement when he checked in at Thorp Arch this week, then it certainly wasn’t forthcoming from owner Massimo Cellino.
When asked why he’d appointed the former Slovenia international to the helm of one of England’s most illustrious clubs, Cellino replied ‘I don’t know’ and proceeded to make a bizarre analogy about watermelons.

‘The coaches are like watermelons,’ he continued. ‘You find out about them when you open them.’ Probably why he’s got so through many over the years.
Mind you, the Italian did think Milanic was ‘good-looking’ and ‘a very cool guy’ so there is some hope he might last a little longer than the six matches afforded to David Hockaday.
The rest of the picture will become a little clearer on Saturday when Leeds travel to Brentford, who are two places and two points beneath them.
The decision to appoint Milanic, whose Sturm Graz side finished an underwhelming fifth in last season’s Austrian Bundesliga and were eliminated from the Europa League by Iceland’s finest, Kopavogur, seems a little harsh on caretaker boss Neil Redfearn.
Redfearn had emerged as a genuine contender for the post after overseeing an upturn in the team’s fortunes with three wins from their last four matches. 
Milanic will keep Redfearn in the dug-out and his insider knowledge will likely be crucial in keeping the capricious Cellino happy.
Brentford need to find answers to their present defensive woes and come into the Griffin Park encounter off the back of a 4-0 loss at Middlesbrough and a 3-0 home defeat to Norwich.
Jonathan Douglas, who left Leeds under a bit of a cloud in 2009 after four years there, could face his old club.
