Jesse Marsch reveals talks with Leeds United board after defeat v Fulham

Jesse Marsch has revealed that he and the Leeds board held talks immediately after the loss to Fulham on Sunday (23 October).

The Whites suffered a sixth defeat in eight games and a second consecutive loss at Elland Road as goals from Aleksandar Mitrovic, Bobby Decordova-Reid and Willian were enough to see off Rodrigo and Crysencio Summerville’s strikes in a 3-2 result.

The fans chanted to “sack the board” and told Marsch he was “getting sacked in the morning” during the game, but Marsch shared after the game, as quoted by the BBC, that he has spoken with them and they are still behind them.

The last time Leeds were in form as bad as they currently are was last season when they made the decision to sack Marcelo Bielsa and bring Marsch in, as they battled relegation.

Now they have fallen back into the drop zone in the Premier League and are winless since August, meaning a decision is needed quickly.


Once you lose the fans it’s almost impossible to turn the tide back in your favour, and it seems inevitable now that Marsch will leave Leeds soon.

But with the board seemingly continuing to back him despite the poor form, this seems like it will drag on for a little while longer and that means this is likely to get worse before it gets better.

The poor form needs to be addressed and Marsch tried to do that with six changes to his starting lineup for Sunday’s game, yet they still lost even after taking the lead.

That’s a sign that it’s more than just the players on the pitch and is more about the approach, style and management behind the scenes.

Fans have turned and want Marsch gone, but the board continue to support him despite him taking us into another relegation battle. Same results from the same mistakes. It simply isn’t good enough.
