Leeds: Fans discuss Marcelo Bielsa after he takes responsibility for Forest defeat

Leeds: Fans discuss Marcelo Bielsa after he takes responsibility for Forest defeat - Leeds United

Leeds’ promotion hopes took another hit after a trip to the City Ground to face promotion rivals Nottingham Forest ended in defeat.

It wasn’t just the result that should hit Leeds hard, however, as the manner of the performance was the biggest concern – though the Whites have now won just once in seven games.

Kalvin Phillips was missed in midfield as Ben White put in a WhoScored rating of 6.4, but there were numerous examples of possession being lost too easily and one shot on target tells a story of how few openings the visitors created.

Forest are now just one point off the Yorkshire side but Fulham’s win over Blackburn takes them level on points, and therefore Bielsa’s side are in danger of dropping out of the top two.

The Argentine has admitted responsibility for the defeat on Saturday and defended his players, even though Kiko Casilla arguably could have done better to keep out Sammy Ameobi’s opener.

Fans have been reacting to and discussing their manager’s comments, with a variety of opinions being expressed.

Leeds fans, let us know your thoughts on the current run and your view of Bielsa. Is he losing his touch or are the players simply not good enough?
