You said as far as you can tell he's had a good reception off the terraces . I was saying yes he has but social media is another story.

A shocking manager, seemed a bit of a prick too

To change the topic slightly, pass of the day, Dallas in the build up to the third goal, sublime

Some of the play in the second half was outrageous, just goes to show what this team can do when there’s not a ten man wall 18 yards out from goal

Which is why we see so many 10-man walls 18 yards out.

After Tyler Robrts scored the second goal I clearly heard
Du du du du Tyler Robert's so the fans seemed to have swapped allegiances.

And once again the Leeds fans were doing that horrible chant "Leeds are falling apart again" The sooner that gets consigned to the rubbish bin the better.

Never lost once we’ve gone ahead away from home under Bielsa according to sky. Frustrate Leeds a nick a goal is the best way and only way for most teams in this league to beat us

The first time I heard that, Bolton under TC I believe it was, I hated it. Left us wide open for ridicule when it went wrong.

I always find it amusing how teams chant that if they score against us, rather than sing about their own team. It's obviously not saying much if they can only score if we "fell apart".

It's a tinpot Huddersfield chant btw.

Phillips - 7 - Quiet and not sure he was fully fit, good game though and he'll get the coach vote so that's something
No chance of that

I wasn't on the coach today

Took over a Barnsley team that were flying and well on their way to promotion. They got promoted but the longer he stayed the more it appeared his influence dragged them down. Were sinking fast when he left.

At Leeds took over a stuttering team and had nothing about him to change that. If Klich had been recalled he may as well have changed his name to Crick as he would have suffered a crick in the neck watching all the long balls. Usual trick of a new manager with no tactical nous is to come in and slag the fitness levels of and make the players work hard in training. The fans gobble it up saying I told you they weren't giving it 100% etc.

At Hibs it was the same as with Barnsley. He took over a team doing well and they carried on doing well for a while. As with Barnsley though once his ideas and tactics started taking over the team plummeted.

Thankfully because of how poor he was the board here were looking to replace him and got Bielsa. If the board had kept faith in him then I dread to think where we would be now and how dire the football would have been.

We have made a stick for our own backs with that chant. It does more harm than good, when teams score a goal against us and the opposition fans start chanting that. It must be very demoralising for the players.

But some fans defend it because it is ironic and paradoxical since it seems to suggest that were are falling apart but still we are beating you 4-0... wait till you see us when we hit top form.

A simple shift in semantics and it would be both more powerful acceptable.

LEEDS ARE RIPPING YOU APART AGAIN

This would silence the opposition fans and also encourage our own players
