Leeds fans unhappy with supporter as he names who should replace Bielsa on talkSPORT, and that man brought up was Sam Allardyce, who was on Tuesday’s show.
They currently sit second in the Championship table, three points behind West Brom following a 1-1 draw at Brentford last night, though the Baggies have the chance to extend their lead at the top when they face Reading tonight.
Now fans are fearing that if Marcelo Bielsa bottle promotion for a second consecutive year, then the Argentine would leaving, so fan ‘Danny’ called into the radio station to name his potential replacement.
“As much as I hate to say it, I think the problem is Bielsa, he’s sticking with under-performing players like Bamford and Casilla,” said Danny, the Leeds United supporter
“The problem this season is we haven’t got Roofe to put the ball in the net. Bamford, his workrate is good but he’s just not putting the ball in the net.”
Brazil asked: “So, are you losing faith with Bielsa? Do you think he is the problem?”
The fan replied: “Sam, I would take you in a heartbeat. Bielsa was great but look at his track record. Players seem to fall apart – look at what happened last season.
“It has happened with his other clubs.”
The former England manager lifting in the studio kept quiet aside from a slight chuckle.
Watch the exchange on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show:
"I think the problem is Bielsa."
"Sam, I would take you in a heartbeat."
"Bielsa was great, but look at his track record." ?♂️

But Allardyce, has previously been critical of Bielsa not having the silverware to match the philosophy he advocates.
“It sounds like to me everyone is talking about the style of play before results which is ludicrous,” Allardyce said on talkSPORT in January.
“The brainwashing going on in this country is bizarre. It’s results. Leeds haven’t won anything.
“I watched them in the cup against Arsenal and certainly in the first half, they were very, very good and playing very, very well and they are missing one vital thing and that’s a goalscorer. If they get that then they will be playing attractive football and winning promotion then you can say ‘oh what a great job he has done’. ”
As mentioned, Leeds fans were left unhappy with their own supporter as he names who should replace Bielsa on talkSPORT, whilst other Twitter users chose to mock the caller…
Danny the 'Leeds' fan needs to fcuk right off.
We are not in a relegation scrap willing to play crap football mate.
Go and support someone else.

Swapping Bielsa for Allardyce would be like chucking out prime porterhouse steak and a 75 year old bottle of Burgundy in favour of doner meat and chips and a bottle of tizer from a van at the end of a horrendous night that started out with so much promise.
