So, is this really a big deal or not?

A lot of Leeds fans are getting excited about this streak, that Marcelo Bielsa could set a record at Leeds, that no manager has won their first four matches in charge of the club.

If it was an unproven manager like Thomas Christiansen, maybe, but this is Bielsa we’re talking about, a literal legend.

And while it’s nice to win a bunch of games at the start of a season, it’s the ones at the end that matter more in the long run.

On to the links.
