Of course I said Jesse would get his first W this week, but I still bet against him (and lost)

Leeds down 2 @ Wolves at the half.
Edit: must have been some halftime team talk!

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Tied 2-2 in 2nd up a man

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Nonstop excitement from Marsch teams.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Leeds spanked Watford on the road, 3:0, and is now 9 points above relegation... but teams below have multiple games in hand.

Leeds have to stay ahead of either Burnley or Everton, not both.  They've done pretty well so far under Marsch, if they can keep picking up points they should be fine.

 

Burnley is 9 points back of Leeds with 3 games in hand.  They've only won 4 out of 29 games this season, so it might be tough for them to win all 3 of their games in hand.  But their schedule isn't that tough, I don't think they play any of the Big 6.

 

Everton is 5 points back with 2 games in hand.

Burnley played one of their games in hand this weekend and could only get a tie against West Ham.  They're 8 points back of Leeds, with one game in hand.  They play that game in hand this Thursday, home to Southampton.  That's a winnable game for them, although as bad as they have been, you can't count on them winning any game, against any opponent.  

 

Burnley canned their manager just before the WHU game, it remains to be seen if they'll get some boost in performance from the sacking or if they'll just totally tank and sink into relegation.

 

Even if Burnley beats Southampton, they will still be 5 points back of Leeds with 6 to play.  Burnley's schedule is favorable, but they would need to win 2 or 3 of their last 6 to overtake Leeds, and that's assuming Leeds loses most of their remaining games.  Burnley's only won 4 out of 31 so far, so things are looking grim for them.

 

On the flip side, Marsch seems to be in good shape in terms of keeping Leeds up.  That was his immediate and most pressing goal, and he's likely to achieve it.  Leeds were two points above 18th place when he took over; they are now 8 points ahead of 18th place, which might be 5 points if Burnley beats SH.  Assuming they stay up, Marsch will get the summer to sit back and really analyze what he needs and what he can do to move Leeds forward.  I don't know how rich the owner is, but Leeds are a big club with a devoted fanbase and a history of league and European success.  It's not unreasonable to see them as at least a mid-table Premier League team which is vying for Europa League spots within a couple of  years.  Hopefully, Marsch is the guy to take them there.

If they stay up i wonder if he'd push for Tyler Adams this summer. From a usmnt perspective it would be better for him to push for a starting role under a manager that knows him well rather than languishing on the bench at Leipzig
