New Jesse Marsch sack development emerges, matter of time before Leeds United board get rid

It’s only a matter of time before the Leeds United board sack Jesse Marsch despite his side winning 2-1 against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, according to the Sunday Mirror.

The newspaper reported via their print edition on 30 October (page 77) that the “majority of Leeds supporters” still want the 48-year-old to be sacked right away even though they moved out of the Premier League’s relegation zone with that shock win on Merseyside.

It is understood that even though Marsch has constantly said that he’s got the support of the hierarchy, “it is only a matter of time before the board pull the trigger”.

Stay of execution

Leeds’ season won’t be judged on these wins, unfortunately.

If we’d had a relatively comfortable start to the season and were sat in mid-table, that win over Liverpool would have been big in the sense that it would have actually meant something.

While we’re buzzing with the win, it may just be delaying the inevitable with Marsch.

Leeds fans turned on the American after the defeats to Leicester and Fulham last week – and understandably so.

His team selection against Leicester was farcical and his inability to get a team ticking on a tactical sense – conceding stupid goals at set-pieces – is something that’s cropping up time and time again.

We’ve beaten two-thirds of the big-six this season. But those wins also account for two-thirds of our overall Premier League victories.

We’ve lost against Brighton, Brentford, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Fulham – the teams that are more important to beat.

That game against Bournemouth next week is absolutely massive.
