Birmingham City continue build-up to Leeds United clash as Blues fan tackles Mastermind quiz
Leeds fans react to Gerrard link
Bielsa, 64, agreed to stay on as head coach in the summer after Leeds failed to win promotion last season and his current deal expires in June.
If the Whites come up short again in their bid to reach the Premier League – they’re currently fifth ahead of the meeting with Blues – then the Argentine is expected to leave.
But supporters aren’t happy after it was claimed Steven Gerrard is being eyed as Bielsa’s successor by the Elland Road hierarchy.
How Leeds could use break ahead of Blues clash
On the upcoming Leeds v Birmingham game at Elland Road, Sky Sports pundit David Prutton has had his say on why the current international break may be a timely one for Bielsa’s men.
Pep Clotet’s Blues return to Championship action at Elland Road on October 19 following the two-week interval for international fixtures.
While Birmingham’s last outing saw them claim a dramatic 2-1 win over Middlesbrough, courtesy of Odin Bailey’s late strike, promotion hopefuls Leeds were beaten by the same scoreline at Millwall, following a first-half red card to Gaetano Berardi.
Prutton – a former Whites and Sheffield Wednesday midfielder – says it will have been a long break for Leeds to reflect on.
But the 38-year-old adds that extra recovery time could prove crucial as Marcelo Bielsa’s side prepare to host Birmingham next weekend.
How would you fare?
A Birmingham City boffin appeared on Mastermind on Friday night – and scored a total of 13 points.
Bluenose Tom Niblett chose Blues as his specialist subject and fired home seven correct answers out of 12 questions posed by legendary host John Humphrey.
The senior media officer was, though, left kicking himself, jokingly admitting after getting one wrong: “I’ve heard of him, yeah!”
We’ve taken a look at all the free agents still available to Championship clubs, to assess whether the Blues should be looking at any.
