‘Lord Jesus please don’t’: Some Leeds fans panicking over EFL’s Twitter update

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the news that Elland Road head coach Marcelo Bielsa is in the running for February’s Championship Manager of the Month award.

Bielsa is in the running after steering the Whites out of what was becoming a worrying slump and into a winning streak complete with clean sheets which has proven the basis for a return to the top of the table.

Although Leeds began the month badly, with defeats to Wigan and Nottingham Forest, Bielsa then steered the Elland Road side to a valuable point away at Brentford, before claiming a 1-0 home win over Bristol City.

The Whites then registered the same scoreline against Reading and Middlesbrough before finishing the month in style with a 4-0 hammering of Hull on their own patch.

Bielsa is up against West Bromwich Albion’s Slaven Bilic, Wigan’s Paul Cook and Fulham’s Scott Parker for the award, with the winner announced on Friday 13 March.

As good as it is to see the Argentine recognised for his efforts, some Leeds fans would rather any of the other three get handed the accolade, for superstitious reasons:

 

Up next for Leeds is Sunday’s Championship trip to Cardiff City.
