Leeds United news as ex-Whites man bemoans 'shocking lack of discipline'

By Danny Bloomer

Here are the latest Leeds United morning headlines on Friday, May 13.

Kenny criticises discipline

Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has criticised the side’s lack of discipline in recent matches. The Whites have received first-half red cards in each of their last two matches, with both coming at a time they were trailing.

First, Luke Ayling was given his marching orders with Leeds 2-0 down at Arsenal, before Daniel James was sent off with Chelsea 1-0 in front at Elland Road. Speaking to Football Insider, Kenny says Leeds should be keeping their heads at such a crucial time of the season.

He said: “It’s a shocking lack of discipline. The one thing you need in a relegation scrap is a cool head and clearly there aren’t many of them at Leeds.

“It’s so disappointing. With Ayling, it’s a split-second decision and he’s got it wrong. You can’t judge him off one mistake and he has been an amazing servant to Leeds. He will be devastated by that but it was such a bad time to do it.”

Woodgate on Bielsa

Jonathan Woodgate believes Leeds United were wrong to sack Marcelo Bielsa. The former Elland Road favourite felt that the popular Argentinian would have reversed the club's fortunes despite the end of his reign in February witnessing three heavy losses against Manchester United (4-2), Liverpool (6-0) and Tottenham (4-0) - the culmination of a six-game win-less run that included five defeats.

On Bielsa's dismissal, Woodgate told BritishGambler.co.uk : "I would have kept Bielsa on, as I think he would have turned it round. I know they’d been on a bad run, particularly at home losing a few, but he would have turned it around.

"I was a big fan of Marcelo Bielsa, and what he did to the Leeds team and the players. He improved the club and the players, but I just think Leeds wanted something fresh."

Pressure takes its toll

Relegation pressure is playing its part in the aggression seen from Leeds United players which has delivered two red cards in two matches. Jesse Marsch is without Luke Ayling and Daniel James for 21/22’s endgame after reckless tackles.

Add those suspensions to the injuries or doubts around Adam Forshaw, Patrick Bamford, Raphinha, Tyler Roberts, Stuart Dallas, Jack Harrison, Crysencio Summerville and Leeds are lacking options. Ayling and James each flew into tackles without control at a time when their side was against the ropes.
