TalkSPORT pundit predicts Jesse Marsch to be sacked after Leeds United loss v Fulham
Perry Groves has told talkSPORT that Jesse Marsch’s time as Leeds manager is “coming to an end” after they were booed off at Elland Road against Fulham.
The Whites were beaten 3-2 on Sunday afternoon to fall into the relegation zone in the Premier League after six defeats in eight games and no wins since August.
And fans booed the team off the pitch while chanting for Marsch and the board to be sacked, something that Groves believes they won’t be able to come back for and it’s now inevitable that he will lose his job.
“No wins in eight and they had been pretty good at home to be fair, only one defeat,” he said [23 October]. “They look in total disarray.
“When you get, when your team gets booed off, then as a manager you know that your time is probably coming to an end.
“Elland Road, when it’s rocking and everybody is together, that is one of the best grounds to be at. It was not great today for the Leeds United fans.”
Fans have simply had enough of the constant excuses from Marsch that things haven’t gone the team’s way or things are getting better.
The team started the season well, but since beating Chelsea 3-0 back in August they haven’t won any of their last eight and by losing six of them they’re now in the worst form they’ve been in since sacking Marcelo Bielsa last season.
Whether it’s injuries, refereeing decisions or just individual errors there always seems to be something, but Leeds just simply haven’t been good enough to get wins.
Something needs to change and considering that Marsch made six changes to his lineup for this game and they still lost, it suggests it isn’t the players but more the setup and the manager.
He needs to go and the fans have turned now, so as Groves says, it’s just a matter of time before the board are forced to act.
Hopefully they don’t leave it too late though.
