A lot of Leeds United fans have replied to a post from Phil Hay that claims that Leeds United are ‘nine games away from the holy grail’.

To kick things off what season is this from?

Included in his post was a link to a piece he wrote in April about how Marcelo Bielsa’s teams do from a standing start.

Hay revealed that from the first nine games of the season, Bielsa’s teams average around 15 points, based upon his time in Argentina, Mexico, France, and Spain.

In fact, in his two years at Elland Road, he has done better than his average.

This is good news for the Whites, who have a seven-point gap to third-placed Fulham in the Championship – so if the season does restart, you would think they would be confident in doing enough to get promoted.

Certainly, these Whites fans are feeling confident, with one claiming that once the season gets going again, Leeds will have ‘unstoppable momentum’.

It is clear from these statistics that if the Whites continue the way Bielsa’s teams have in the past, they should be able to do enough to secure promotion.

Are you confident Leeds can do enough to win promotion, if the season restarts?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, some Whites supporters are unsure and don’t want Hay to jinx anything.

The Premier League intend to restart their season on 17th June and Hay claimed that this could see the Championship begin contact training.

Leeds and the other Championship clubs returned to training at the beginning of this week, and the Whites have been posting a lot of photos and videos of the players in training.

If the league does get the go-ahead and is allowed to restart, it seems that many Leeds fans are confident that their team will get the job done, but others are worried.

They feel that the lack of a crowd might have an impact on the Whites and are seemingly nervous.

Before the break, Leeds had won five Championship matches in a row, and if they can follow how Bielsa’s teams have performed in the past, then they could be in a good position to win promotion to the Premier League.
