Morning Leeds-in for 18 September: Marcelo Bielsa refused to take Millwall manager’s bait

Marcelo Bielsa isn’t about to take the bait from Millwall manager Neil Harris.

Even though the two managers spoke after the match and Neil Harris seemed content at the post-match press conference, Harris felt the need to call Leeds & the celebration by the players as a “disgrace to English football” which would be hilarious if it wasn’t uttered by the manager of a team that really is a disgrace to English football.

Bielsa didn’t take the bait, and honestly, who does Harris think he is? Then again, if I was the manager of Millwall (eww) and my team just surrendered a late equalizer, I’d probably be finding things other than my team’s performance to call attention to from the press in London.

And seriously, Turkish flags, throat-slitting gestures, and general f*ckery from Millwall fans? There is one team that is a disgrace, and they aren’t based in Yorkshire.
