Some Leeds United fans have lashed out at Marcelo Bielsa for comments he made comparing the displays against Nottingham Forest and Brentford.
In his post-match press conference following the draw with the Bees, the former Marseille coach claimed that the performance against the Reds was better than the one against Thomas Frank’s side (via Adam Pope). However, statistics from both games seem to show that Bielsa is wrong in his assessment of the two performances.
One fan was very clear in her assessment of the comment.

In the fixture against Sabri Lamouchi’s team, the Whites were woeful as they managed to conjure up just one shot on target despite having 70% possession (via BBC). However, it was a different story against the west London outfit as the Leeds were dominant in many parts of the game, having more shots overall, more shots on target and possessing more of the ball.
You can understand the show of anger from some fans as they reacted to his comments over two games. Here are some of the replies:
He’s lost plot then

Not sure about that..

The first time I’ve questioned him. That’s just ridiculous. Forest was arguably our worst performance of the season. We were quality tonight. If Harrison or Costa had finished their decent chances then we would have won that. Easy to blame Casilla (bad mistake) finishing bad too

How? 😂😂 we were 8 out of 10 tonight and no more than 3 on Saturday.
