'Wow', 'Set me off again' – These Leeds fans react to 'phenomenal' image of Bielsa v Barnsley

When Leeds United scored the late winner in the 1-0 win against Swansea, there were mass celebrations from everyone one but Bielsa.

He “literally turned away, like he always does” said Athletic journalist Phil Hay.

However, even Bielsa found it impossible to keep his emotions in check after a massively important and very nervy 1-0 win against Barnsley on Thursday.

One Leeds fan posted the image of Bielsa roaring with clenched fists and said, “Phenomenal picture – rare show of pure emotion from Bielsa”.

He went on to say that if Leeds win promotion on the pitch on Sunday, that “we could be in for Newells-esque scenes”.

This was in reference to Bielsa’s first title win with Newell’s Old Boys when he was lifted onto the shoulders of fans and twirled a shirt over his head.

It’s been said that Bielsa is finding it hard to enjoy this season and will only permit himself to when promotion has been secured.

However, even if fans were there, we don’t think that we’d get a repeat of the infamous Newell’s celebration.

We do expect to see an outpouring of emotion from everyone involved, though. It’s been a long, hard journey and Bielsa has put so much work into the campaign.

If West Brom or Brentford drop points before Sunday’s game we’ll be robbed of seeing Bielsa’s reaction but we’d still rather it was done as soon as possible.

We think Leeds will be promoted one way or another by Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, here are the best reactions from Leeds fans…
