Leeds United: Patience wearing thin with Jesse Marsch as no improvement made
Patience is wearing thin with Jesse Marsch at Leeds United with no meaningful improvements made, according to Leeds Live journalist Beren Cross.
It was another chaotic performance from the Whites in their third-round FA Cup clash against Cardiff City, one which should have been won easily.
Cross shared that patience is “wearing thin” with Marsch now after 32 games at the helm, in which no meaningful improvements have been made.
“If the deflating double-header defeats to Leicester City and Fulham pushed Marsch to the precipice for the first time in his Leeds tenure, when does he next look over the edge?
“The boos at half-time in Wales would suggest patience is wearing thin once more,” said Cross as quoted by Leeds Live (9 January).
When you look at the stone-cold facts of this matter, the record Marsch has provided Leeds United with screams a potential sacking, especially in the cut-throat nature of the modern game.
Yes, it takes time to imprint your ideas on a set of players but Marsch should have surely been able to do this by now, even more so with an added FIFA World Cup break.
So it begs the question, are the players listening to what Marsch is telling them to do? It’s either that or Marsch is unable to get his ideas across to the squad.
Something certainly isn’t right within with Whites squad at the moment and for all the flashes of brilliance, there are also chaotic, frantic spells of misery.
Marsch looks like he’s got the backing of the board to try and get things right in the meantime if the Leeds United January transfer business is anything to go by and upcoming fixtures are in the must-win category for the American.
Aston Villa, Brentford, Nottingham Forest, Everton and Southampton await Marsch before the month of February and a failure to gain a fair amount of points here could spell the end.
