Leeds United

‘Massive month of games’ – Plenty of Leeds fans highlight crucial period for Bielsa’s side



Leeds United’s hunt for a Premier League place looks set to go to the wire, with journalist Phil Hay describing it as ‘width-of-a-cigarette-paper’ stuff at the top in a recent article.

Any one of four teams look likely to be in the top two, with Sheffield United, Norwich City and West Brom all challenging the Whites for a place amongst the county’s elite.

Leeds have been around the top two all season, only dropping out last weekend by virtue of not having a fixture, but it’s left them playing catch up for the first time this season. In a division where any of the top four could still be champions, even the slightest slip up could end up costing Marcelo Bielsa’s side dearly.

With news that he might quit if they’re not promoted, pressure has increased ten-fold on the current side to make the grade. That’s also set fans on edge, with plenty responding to Hay’s article with thoughts of their own.

The one benefit they can see is a final day clash with Ipswich who could be relegated by then and maybe wouldn’t want to be the team to hand the title to Norwich City.

Here’s the best of the responses from Hay’s tweet.
