Oh my bad.

Oh well I’ll bring something to the table. That idiot Bielsa. The moment he starts opening his mouth talking about how good he is, Leeds begin to bottle it. All this happened after that Arsenal game. They were going along smoothly then the Arsenal game happened and they capitulated. Spygate? Right after that, all the attention, he starting getting overconfident and bam they bottled it. He’s a right cocky b******.

When has Bielsa ever talked about how good he is :lol:

When he revealed everything in that spygate scandal. He was basically revealing why he was this world renowned manager and it brought a whole lot of unwanted pressure on him and the team. Feel like Leeds were under under pressure to play this intense style of football and it began affecting their results. Sometimes you gotta play ugly, man.

He did that to show that the spying didn't make much of a difference. You also just made up that he did it after the Arsenal game too :lol:

Did you see the production BBC did for the game? It was all about Bielsa ball. How this Lower division team full of unknown players with lesser ability could outclass a Premier League giant based on football philosophy alone. I just think it was too much pressure for the team to handle. And IIRC their form has dipped since that game. Maybe he’s better flying under the radar.

I think Leeds are expected to play this dynamic style of football and they can’t sustain that for a full season. I agree the media plays into it way too much. They want him to succeed so much that it’s got him doing strange things? Did you see him running full pitch to celebrate a players goal in training. That’s not normal for him. He’s cracking. I really really hope they don’t bottle it this time. It would be a great shame. I could give a f*** about Leeds but it’s undeniable the amount of effort he puts in and the football really is exquisite.

Also the fair play last year. See he really is a football perfectionist. I’m not sure how many other managers would do that. Wouldn’t you just take the goal and say we win some, we lose some? I think I’d just take the goal. I bet Arsene would have turned his back right there and say he didn’f see it and tell his players to continue.

Do you think he called the BBC up before the game or something :lol:

Bielsa has done a good job at Leeds and is obviously a class manager, but if he doesn’t take them up it will be a failure. I’d love him at a non Ashley Toon, he’s amazing like :thup:

Its worth bearing in mind they finished 13th the season before he arrived and haven't spent much on players

Aye, that and given his methods, he’s showed how good a coach he is to have them playing/performing as they do and in that division. For my admiration of him and his style, methods etc. I’d like to see Leeds go up. I think in the PL under him with better technical players, they’d more than hold their own.

He’s like Rafa in many ways, you either follow everything he’s doing or wanting to do to the letter as a player or not and as a club you have to give these kind of coaches 100% autonomy to benefit fully from such great minds. Rafa is quite unique though, in that I think he will always find a way around things to deliver if not his own objectives at least what is demanded. For Leeds it’s promotion, Rafa would achieve that. Staying up too. Both are capable of delivering a whole lot more than most managers or coaches, though.

Biesla teams are the most predictable in the world at this, you can set your clock each season for when they are going to tire out and they hit the wall.

Same thing happened in Marseille when they blew the French title and with Bilbao when they lost those finals at the end of the season.  Guy is an amazing brain, but also an absolute mad man who will run his players into the ground.  Klopp was similar, but has learnt how manage a team over a full season.

Klopp hasn’t suddenly learned how to manage a team from burning out, he’s just able to keep his players energised longer because mentally, he had a team who are stronger than they are physically and is managing in a league where physically the demands and constraints are the same for everyone whether it’s the bottom team or the top team.

That wasn’t the case in Germany.

Leed’s problems under Biesla are more about a deficiency in technical ability than physicality. These are professional athletes, they burn the candle quicker in the mind than in their body and unless you’re technically able to play his style every game and have the right energy levels mentally to energise yourself week in week out, fit or not, you’re going to struggle. That’s why the likes of Ward-Prowse can run around full of energy for 38 games, but wouldn't be able to keep up at Liverpool and would look burnt out. It’s why Milner at his age stays strong despite not being as technically good as others.

Klopp can keep his players energised even more longer if they are technically able to keep up with things and have a strong mentality buying into his methods. The fact Leeds have done as well as they have under Biesla since he arrived suggests his methods work and its players adapting to him rather than him having to adapt his ways that is working the most.

He’s one of the best because he can do what he does with a Leeds. Could Mourinho, could Pep. Now give Biesla Barcelona. Give Rafa Leeds, give him Man Utd or Arsenal. Eventually they find a way, but only if the players fully adapt to him.

That’s a great point about Ward Prowse. Didn’t think about it like that.

Never knew you could be offside from a corner even though you're behind the ball when it's played and it's gone backwards. I thought that was the exact advantage of having a corner tbh

Offside from a corner is bonkers man. That's obviously the rules so it's the correct decision but it seems crackers

The Wolves offside decision does not make much sense, tbh. I am sure it is correct by the law, not disputing that, but it never would have been called in any football match before the adaptation of VAR.
