In these days of coronavirus crisis, Marcelo Bielsa is a reassuring figure. Maybe that's not a good thing.
These players, many of whom have been at Leeds a long time, have remembered what fifteen years of patience have done to the fans, and decided their fate is not to wait anymore.
I can't imagine a black Leeds fan wanting to come to Elland Road if they feel like the players are allowed to call someone 'you fucking n----r' and receive a round of applause afterwards. And I can't imagine a Leeds fan wanting another Leeds fan to feel that way.
There was a low groaning from beneath the pitch at Elland Road on Saturday, as there always is when Reading visit, treading on the grass and disturbing the cursed ghouls beneath.
