Ask any Leeds fan how they feel right now, and the likely response will be negative. This is a city that is, in the words of Daniel Taylor in The Athletic, living on its nerves. Everyone worries that the two-year return to the Premier League is set to end. The sacking of Marcelo Bielsa and the hiring of Jesse Marsch has done little to appease the support. If anything, anger is more palpable than ever before.

It is not often that a coach makes any kind of meaningful commitment to a club amid relegation worries. For one, if you are in a relegation fight most fans probably want a new coach in the first place. Also, most top-flight coaches aren’t really keen on going down a division. In the case of Jesse Marsch, though, the American seems keen to stick around at Leeds United regardless of what happens. With the club seemingly committed to him regardless, the former RB Leipzig coach has been speaking about his plans.

Despite being rivals, it would be fair to say that Leeds and Manchester United have done a lot of business together over the years. Some have benefitted one club more than the other – Gordon Strachan one way, Eric Cantona the other – but it is usually a pretty decent way to go for a player looking to rebuild their career. And while some Whites fans have no real love for doing business with ‘them’, the sheer enormity of Man Utd’s budget means that it is hard to reject some of the players they have put up for sale.

For Leeds United fans, much of the positivity of the 2020-21 season evaporated on opening night of the 21-22 season. After a thumping at the hands of Manchester United, things have rarely improved for the Whites. A flurry of deals that look poor in retrospect were carried out, giving the squad a lack of balance and a lack of confidence in many key areas. This has led to many fans who were dreaming of seeing a young and invigorating Leeds side developed begin to worry about exits in the summer.

If you were to look back on the last four years of Leeds United activity, you would notice a spree of successful signings. Given the club spent what felt like two decades making a meal of just about every signing, that is a rare thing indeed for Whites fans. However, one name that definitely goes down in the bust category is that of Jean-Kevin Augustin. The young France striker arrived at Leeds in a bid to turn his career around after a failure of a time at RB Leipzig.

It is safe to say that the 2021-22 season has not played out the way any Leeds United fan would have expected. The Whites have seen a top-half finish last season turn into an injury-plagued relegation scrap this year. The success enjoyed last year under Marcelo Bielsa was replaced by a painful march to resignation. After many months of questioning, Bielsa finally left after the 4-0 loss at home to Tottenham Hotspur. His replacement, Jesse Marsch, arrives at Elland Road having to win a lot of people over.

In what has been one of the most trying periods of time for Leeds United in the last two or three years, more drama looks set to be building. The club recently announced the sacking of Marcelo Bielsa, the legendary Argentine who brought the club back to the Premier League. In his place came Jesse Marsch, the smooth-talking American who was recently sacked by RB Leipzig for overseeing a disastrous half-season.

Though it would be hard to say that Leeds United fans like Steven Gerrard, there is a grudging respect for his talent as a player and a coach. The Liverpool legend might not have had too many games at Elland Road to be treated to the useful atmosphere, but he knows all about it. Growing up watching the Reds, Gerrard would have seen some truly great Leeds teams – including those housing his current number two in Gary McAllister.

Having endured a rather horrible winter so far, Leeds United fans are pretty much crying out for some change. Though the vast, vast majority of fans want to see Marcelo Bielsa stick around, some fans have admitted they want to see some big changes in the playing squad. Though Bielsa is known for having a smaller squad, investment is expected in the January window as Leeds look to arrest a worrisome 2021-22 season.
