Lee Johnson has been officially unveiled as new boss of Barnsley, leaving Oldham Athletic and replacing Danny Wilson who was sacked earlier this month.
The news received a reasonably warm response from Reds fans on twitter, many of whom happy to see a new (and apparently better-looking) face, away from football’s managerial merry-go-round.
