Beware of negative Elland Road supporters

Before a spectacular comeback, Marsch spoke to the Leeds players at halftime about the “negative” Elland Road supporters. After hearing jeers from the crowd during the first half of Saturday’s 4-3 victory over Bournemouth at Elland Road, Leeds manager Jesse Marsch had a message for his team. After Bournemouth took a 2-1 lead at halftime at Elland Road, Leeds fans booed their team off the field.

The hosts then fell behind 3-1 early in the second half but rallied to win the game 4-3. After the final whistle, roaring cheers took the place of the jeers as Leeds climbed up to the 12th spot in the standings. Marsch stated following the game that he had instructed his players to ignore the jeers and concentrate on the task at hand during the interval.

The right to opinion and feel belongs to the supporters. All of us do. The activity calls for that. He told BBC Sport, My entire attention is on making sure the group is strong. At halftime, I advised them to remain unaffected by the unfavorable atmosphere in the stadium and concentrate on the tactical elements of our approach; if they continued to play aggressively, we would win. So we did.

Leeds may consider themselves fortunate that they were only down one goal after a terrible first-half performance. The club did succeed in turning things around in the second half to add another crucial three points to last week’s shocking victory over Liverpool. Leeds overcame a two-goal deficit at Elland Road to win 4-3 against Liverpool in November 2000 and avoid losing in the Premier League since. On Wednesday, the Whites play at Wolves in the Carabao Cup, and on Saturday, they play at Tottenham in the Premier League.
