Leeds United’s form has been nothing short of dire lately.

Indeed, the Whites have won just once since the turn of the year, and even before 2020 rolled around they were faltering, as they’ve now won just two of their last 11 games.

It has to be said that Patrick Bamford and Kiko Casilla’s poor showings are two of the main reasons for Leeds’ ongoing demise.

Bamford has scored just twice in his last nine appearances, and Casilla has made errors leading to goals in each of his last three games, allowing a deflected corner to beat him directly against Wigan, being beaten far too easily at his near post against Forest, and pretty much assisting Said Benrahma against Brentford on Tuesday.

With Leeds playing so poorly as of late you’d think that Marcelo Bielsa would be looking at changing things up, particularly when it comes to Casilla and Bamford.

However, ahead of United’s game against Bristol City, the Argentine confirmed that both of the aforementioned players would be starting.

Understandably, this sparked a negative reaction from the fanbase.

While many were unhappy with this news, others pointed out the fact that it’s Bielsa’s stubbornness that has caused this issue.

Can you match the score to the picture?

The Argentine has been called stubborn a number of times before, and his refusal to drop either Casilla or Bamford at the moment certainly plays into that narrative.

In other news, Leeds would have benefitted massively if the FA did one thing.
