It must be that time in the news cycle again, as once again the media seem awash with ‘reports and claims’ that Everton have shortlisted Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa as Marco Silva’s potential replacement – there’s even been talk of Arsenal.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen utter nonsense like this reported and it often comes from a pundit or such like making a tenuous link simply to fill some air time or a column, but it quickly spreads online and some outlet’s pick it up as if it’s a genuine story.

Talksport probably outdid themselves over the weekend, as we had former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan suggesting Everton would be the ideal destination for the Argentine, but it also seems fellow pundit Robbie Savage was talking him up for the vacant job at the Emirates Stadium.

Now, if Leeds fail to earn promotion this year and we have heartbreak like last summer, then Bielsa might move on, but there is absolutely no chance of him jumping ship midway through the season as we all know the bond he has with fans, he’s loyal and his vision at Elland Road is playing out nicely.

Although the pundits are absolutely right to talk him up as a Premier League manager, he’ll get there with us – but can we please not have another fortnight of ‘he’s off’ to distract us from a key festive run of fixtures.
