Another year older and, hopefully after a year in the Championship another year wiser.

Leeds United fans up and down the country put out their white, blue and yellow  bunting, put on their best dresses and partied the night away on Sunday as Marcelo Bielsa celebrated his 64th birthday.

OK, that may be an exaggeration, but if he takes them up this year would you really put it past them not to do that this time next year?

Whilst there were the usual standard messages from fans, doing what you’re meant to do on a day like yesterday and wish the man a Happy Birthday, it appears as though some people were more preoccupied with more important things. Like signing a new centre back and centre forward, which I think is bordering a little bit on the excessive side.

By all means do it during something irrelevant like when a fixture gets moved, but let the man enjoy his birthday. On top of fans demanding player movements, there were some fans who took the opportunity to take their love of Bielsa way beyond just the standard message and have a little bit of fun with the occasion.
