Marcelo Bielsa might finally be our manager tomorrow – though I know that we’ve heard that all before in recent weeks.
The Argentine has been linked heavily with us for some time now after Paul Heckingbottom was sacked and I certainly hope we can get this one over the line.
Indeed, it looks as though we’re getting closer with Luke Ewards from the Telegraph reporting this on Twitter earlier today:
Leeds hoping to confirm appointment of Marcelo Biesla as their new manager in the next 24 hours #lufc

This, of course, is something we have heard before but I think we are edging nearer to finally getting our man.
Let’s take a look at how our other fans have reacted to the news on Twitter, then, ahead of what could potentially be a big day tomorrow:
Bruce would still make a good assistant

I can understand the cautious nature of many of these tweets.
We’ve seen a number of false dawns – not just with Bielsa – and so it makes sense that we’re perhaps not counting our chickens just yet.
