We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Jesse Marsch should have a hushed word with the PGMOL due to the number of teams time-wasting against Leeds United, according to Paul Robinson.
Marsch has regularly complained about opposition players killing time in recent matches, leading to Jeff Stelling accusing the American of hypocrisy on Sky Sports News on 8 October (01:20pm).
Stelling said “it was a bit rich to criticise Villa for wasting time” when Leeds did the same once they went down to 10 men in the 0-0 draw earlier this month.
Robinson believes Marsch should give up with his public complaints as teams are cottoning onto ways to wind up the American boss and his players.
“The more he complains, the more people know it upsets him and it upsets Leeds,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News.
“He may as well put out a blueprint on how to upset them, it’s what every team is going to do.
“I can understand the manager’s point and you can see what he’s saying.
“But there’s no point in highlighting it because every team does it if you can get away with it.
“If he feels there’s an issue then he needs to have a quiet word with PGMOL.
“But he’s running the risk of telling everybody how to upset his team, how to play against his team and how to get a result.
“It’s every week and it’s no coincidence that every week, teams are doing it to Leeds because they know they don’t like it.”
In other Leeds United news, Adam Forshaw has shared how Marsch tore into one player in front of everyone at traning.
