Leeds United fans have been hitting out at manager Marcelo Bielsa after his comments following the disappointing home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday. Following the game, it seemed as though the Argentine was lauding his side’s ability to create chances as he claimed his side create an average of ‘ten chances per match’ (via LUFC Data). Now, it seems Bielsa’s comments are making this one fan fall asleep as he lashed out at the 64-year-old.
Yawn, I love Bielsa but this is getting boring.

Finishing was once again on the agenda as the Whites struggled to take their chances against Garry Monk’s side. Despite having 14 shots on goal, the Yorkshire outfit managed to get just five of them on target with Patrick Bamford missing a ‘fine chance’ at the start of the second half (via BBC).
It’s a worrying aspect of the side’s play which carries on from their FA Cup tie away to Arsenal, where the side missed numerous first-half chances on their way to a 1-0 defeat. As a result, fans took to Twitter as they hit out at Bielsa for his comments on the side’s finishing. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
No, we need to take our chances!

But the attack isn’t good if we’re not scoring .. he’s making the same mistake with bamford as he did with crespo and batistuta and it’s all stubbornness.

What about the avoidable misses Marcelo, what about the avoidable misses? We shouldn’t be missing those. We get ten chances to score and don’t score. Oppo get two and take two. It’s not quantum physics!
