Beren Cross shares what Leeds United fans chanted in 2-1 loss v Aston Villa
Leeds United fans were heard chanting “Marsch out” during the 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa on Friday night, according to reliable journalist Beren Cross.
The Whites were by far the better team on the night but fell to defeat anyway, making it seven games without a win and leaving them just two points above the relegation zone.
This is the second time this season the team have been on such a run, and Cross reported for LeedsLive that fans are beginning to lose their patience once again with the American coach.
“At Villa Park, there were repeated, short, sharp stabs of “Marsch out, Marsch out”,” they wrote (14 January).
Anyone who watched the game on Friday night will know that Leeds did not deserve to lose that game in any way, but at the highest level that doesn’t matter.
The performance was great, and arguably one of the best of the season, but the only thing that matters when you’re in the position that we’re in is results.
As it stands Leeds have got just two wins in their last 17 games in all competitions, and they came in a freak result against Liverpool at Anfield and then a stunning comeback against Bournemouth in the next game.
Those results saved Marsch’s job at the time if reports are to be believed, and now he needs to do something similar in the next fixtures against Cardiff, Brentford and then Nottingham Forest.
Failure to win those games, or even losing just one of them could be the end of the road despite performances looking decent, because we need points on the board.
