Marcelo Bielsa pre-match press conference was, as expected, full of comments that only stirred the pot with many Leeds United fans.
Of course, with everything that has happened recently with Kiko Casilla, the Whites' premier goaltender has again been at the center of the discussion, as the Argentinian coach has been asked to say if he will play against Bristol City or not.
Is Casilla still a liability?
And as Bielsa confirmed that the Spaniard would keep his place on the side, many fans simply couldn't believe it because they saw him as someone who could cost them points and even their promotion to the top.
They quickly questioned their blundering stubbornness over the matter.
How much extra points is it going to cost us before something is done? 🤔🤔🥱

This goal of 🤡 will still cost us a promotion. An incredible stubbornness from Bielsa

The stubbornness becomes ever more intense when put under pressure. The care of Kiko is unconditional. For all of Bielsa’s talents, it’s her greatest weakness, faith in reason.

Some could not believe what they had heard from their boss.
In the midst of their frustration, two fans couldn't help but take this as a very bad joke and laughed because there is simply no justification for their faith in Casilla.
It seems that despite all his genius, Bielsa is slowly changing the opinions of fans…
You must laugh

One fan joked that the translator should be dismissed immediately because there is no way Bielsa can actually confirm that Casilla and Bamford will both play in the next match.
Bless him, BUT it is time that the translator is fired.

Finally, some fans regretted Illan Meslier, who is still waiting for his chance with the senior team.
If he doesn't have the chance now that Casilla has come out of the boil, when will it happen?
Bielsa needs to trust Meslier, because if he has to play

Meslier must be wondering what to do to get a game
