Steven Gerrard may have had the best start after taking over a mid-table club without significant investment in my Premier League memory. While Marcelo Bielsa’s sacking has already hardened many Leeds fans’ stance on Jesse Marsch. They’ve already got the knives out for the American, for fear he isn’t a working class legend from Argentina, and instead simply a corporate shell of a man hailing from the capitalism capital of the world.

Double Chance: Leeds and the Draw

I normally always put my match result first because it makes sense to explain how I believe the game will go, but this felt like it was out of place.

The reason for that is because I have a sense of how the game will go, but with the margins being so tight and the chances being so limited, I’d nearly rather explain that element before getting into why a Birmingham City fan doesn’t think Aston Villa will win a game of football.

See my dilemma?

Under 2.5 Goals

So, Marsch’s opening press conference was basically a public dressing-down of Marcelo Bielsa’s reign in charge of Leeds United.He spoke ad nauseum about how he needed to focus his rebuilding efforts on their defensive structure rather than anything else – and that almost came to pass in his first game in charge against Leicester.

They look structured now, which is a far cry away from the man-marking, everyone-run-everywhere-and-hope-for-the-best approach they previously deployed.

Half-Time: The Draw

I think he’ll take a lot of joy in his first half performance last week and while Villa are revitalized in their own right, it’s hard to make a case for them being better than Leicester. The message to produce the same display as last week will be crystal clear.

Raphinha to Score Anytime

I sometimes found the people trying to criticize Raphinha hilarious. It’s because he plays for Leeds deep down, but the core of their argument was based around the fact that Leeds were so open that they frequently had more chances.

That’s not quite how football works, and it definitely doesn’t aid a player like Raphinha who would prefer to cleverly pick pockets in between defensive lines that are being slowly lulled into a false sense of security.
