Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa was again facing the media as we built up to tonight’s Yorkshire derby clash with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough and the gaffer struck exactly the right chord for fans in his choice of words as he answered the magnitude of questions.

With defeat to Birmingham City fresh in the memory that obviously was a well-trodden subject by the journalists in attendance and Bielsa certainly curried himself more favour as he again shouldered the blame for the loss based on the decisions he made, instead of blaming players, the referee, or even bemoaning luck as many others often do.

One comment, in particular, went over well with fans following on social media.

To be honest, you can check out Phil Hay’s Twitter feed, almost everything the gaffer said was well received by fans as were the comments he made about asking for structural changes at the training ground as he encourages the club to step up and be even more professional in their treatment of players to ensure we get the very best from them in matches.

Individual sleeping areas may seem like overkill and pampering but a number of clubs now go to those efforts to ensure peak conditioning.
