MOT View: Shock result in big fan survey on Leeds under Bielsa is utterly baffling

The Athletic have revealed the results of a big fan survey and Leeds United generally came through it with flying colours – as you might expect. 

As relayed by Phil Hay, 98.13% of fans would be happy if Marcelo Bielsa was in charge of the club next season.

That was only good enough for third though, after Everton and Liverpool, and we can only assume the near-2% of fans who want him out are Man United supporters in disguise.

Leeds came top in the “entertaining football’ category and second in the “Is your club well run?” question.

However, the shock result was in “Happiness with club’s performance this season.”

Incredibly, despite being in a lofty 11th place in the league and with safety almost guaranteed with nine games left, only 54.83% of fans are happy.

That’s just over half! What in God’s green earth are the other 45% thinking?

It means 12 clubs are happier with how their club is performing than Leeds – including Arsenal!

We’re absolutely baffled by this.

What were fans expecting?

17th place in our first season back in the Premier League was the aim, anything above that was a bonus.

As it is, we’ve got a real chance of ending in the top half of the table and don’t have to worry about relegation in the final nine games.

If Leeds fans aren’t happy with that then we suggest they take a quick reality check.

Ambition is important and we, along with Andrea Radrizzani and Marcelo Bielsa, want to see Leeds back at the top table.

But, these things don’t happen overnight and running before we walk is not a part of a well-run football club.

Put simply, that result is a real shocker in among a great set of results from Leeds fans.
