I think any suggestion of sacking MB would be tantamount to football suicide for Leeds United, in my very humble opinion 🤔.

I would not favour sacking him as we are playing entertaining football towards the top end of the league but for the highest paid manager in the league I find his stubborn streak to be unpalatable. he has boxed himself into a corner with the Bamford situation which will result in us losing Nketiah and putting Bamford under ridiculous pressure. Likely that Nketiah will leave in January and we will not replace because Bielsa believes that a new player would require a pre-season to learn his methods, this will leave us with Roberts as back up. It is this type of rigidity that I would not expect from a highly experienced and well paid manager.

Agree with you Notts and with all the others. To even contemplate a sacking would be a mad suicide. More likely however is that the big man will walk at the end of the season.

Sacking El Loco would make him appear to be the sane one! Personally don’t want him to ever leave!

No point sacking till Xmas by which time both sides of the argument will have more info on if that is right thing to do or not

Personally I’d sack him after his record breaking fail last season I wanted a clear boost and improvement which ain’t there instead the same old problems exists also annoying bigger clubs with loan assets is sucide at this level and that could hurt Leeds in long run.

We have been in the top six since Bubs took over so can not see any logic in asking for his head. Think he needs to step off his high horse though and realise that its about results not just playing pretty football. Sure he has the know how to tweak things but will he. Think recruitment is key but if we are doing it on a shoestring it makes it harder to go the next step. Pretty sure if Radz said we are getting Gayle, Bowen and Dack in Jan sure Bubs would not knock him back.

Sacking will not be needed as the He will walk if things are not to his liking, he’s not the sort of person to take crap!

Notts, Bielsa wanted James to come last January window, so not sure your claim that he would not agree to new arrivals mid season has any validity.

Fans are all great managers when it suits us. Bielsa commands more respect than he is getting. Here is a manager who has drag us out of that endless spiraling pit of drab mid table football and now courting us with promotion to the Premiership.
Without doubt he is the best manager we’ve had since Wilko. He’s elevated very mediocre Leeds players onto another level, ie; Phillips, now rated as a 20Mil+ premiership player. Getting out of the Championship has now become a very difficult task for all teams and Marcelo Bielsa is our manager/ coach, God knows we don’t deserve him but he is ours.
For however long Bielsa believes Bamford is the man for the job, then Bamford is the man for the job.
On the surface everything always looks so obvious and I for one can not and will not believe that his methods are unworthy of us winning promotion.

He has said it himself Bazooka - Bielsa sees it difficult to integrate new players in Jan as they can take up to 6 weeks to understand his system.

Agree with all that except your last paragraph. You can not just say Bubs picks him so he is ok. Any manager in any league would be concerned if his No 9 is not scoring, Bubs included. If Bubs believes what he says about his work rate and he does not need to score then where will goals come from. Harrison, doubt it, Klich maybe a couple, Coasta Bubs already said his game will suffer, Roberts possible when he decides to play him. Shacks not his game, Dallas not even assists Alioski 4 or 5 at most. Eddie is the most likely to score when he is on the pitch, yes he may disrupt the pattern of play a little but if Bubs is saying he cannot compensate for this then he is not the genius a lot of you think he is.

he commands respect?

respect is earnt. he has the record for the worst second half of a season. he has the record for falling apart and P'''Ing away automatic promotion

he lost any points his previous good work built up with back end of last season

so this season is a clean slate. so i judge again. have we imporved from last christmas? a record breaking slump. i don't think so

some leeds fans need to aim higher. record breaking faiulre don't quite cut it for me, don't care how nice the passes are or how how much of the ball we waste. sorry have.

Bermondsey, you and I are on opposite poles mate, we both beg to differ. I respect but reject your stance on Bielsa. FYI i believe we have 1 point more than we did at this time last season, so improvement on last season?
We still won’t know at Xmas wether Bielsa will succeed, or not in your opinion.
End of season fella when we get promoted, I will make you eat your words :) as much as in your opinion you will make me eat mine.
I won’t say good luck for obvious reasons.

Not just a point better off, 3 places better off, as we were 5th this time last year.
