Good Morning. It's Friday 16th September, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Marsch receives £10,000 fine and one-match touchline ban
Jesse Marsch has been handed a £10,000 fine and a one-match touchline ban after admitting to using improper language during the 5-2 defeat by Brentford almost a fortnight ago. The Leeds gaffer was incensed when referee Rob Jones failed to acknowledge a blatant push on Summerville in the host's penalty area.
Having already awarded a dubious penalty to Brentford in the first half (which broke the deadlock), Marsch snapped, and made a beeline for Keith Stroud (the fourth official). Moments later, he received his marching orders. He will be suspended for the visit of Aston Villa on the 2nd October. The Football Association said in a statement...
Leeds United FC’s Jesse Marsch has been fined £10,000 and suspended from the touchline for their next fixture following a breach of FA Rule E3 that happened at their match against Brentford FC in the Premier League on Saturday 3 September 2022.
The manager admitted that his language and behaviour during the 64th minute of that game was improper. “An independent Regulatory Commission subsequently imposed his sanctions.
U21's to field strong line up against Southampton
A bumper Elland Road crowd is expected this evening as Leeds U21's take on Southampton. With ten points out of a possible twelve, Michael Skubala will be delighted with the start his fledging stars have made. They are boosted by the news that Jesse Marsch has made four senior players available, as they regain their fitness following injury.
With no top flight games until the 2nd October, Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Junior Firpo and Patrick Bamford all have the opportunity to get much needed minutes under their belts, although most eyes will be on new signing Wilfried Gnonto. The 18 year old has impressed during training, and is expected to play some part this evening. Bamford and Gnonto have their work cut out displacing Mateo Joseph and Sonny Perkins, who have four goals apiece from as many games.
Roberts struggling at QPR
Missing a guilt edged opportunity, 89% of his duels lost, and giving away possession away on ten occasions, you won't be surprised we're talking about Tyler Roberts. He endured a torrid trip down to Millwall midweek, yet his teammates did the business, and returned to West London with three valuable points.
Roberts joined QPR on a season long loan during the Summer, with the view of a permanent move if all goes well. Unfortunately, with only one goal in 399 minutes of game time, he has yet to make an impact with the Hoops, slipping down to 15th place in the WhoScored register, with a rating of 6.37. Although still only 23, the former Baggie needs to drastically improve or risk slipping down the divisions.
