Leeds' interest in CB Ben White at Brighton is notable for one reason . It's that MB has finally accepted he boobed big time not listening to us fans and indeed, the board who implored him to sign an extra CB last Summer . Not only did he refuse to, he failed to correct this error by neglecting to do so again in Jan . So better late than never, but I can't help wondering if had we done so we would now be planning for prem football, instead of the assault course of another promotion campaign. I know we failed to convert too many chances but had we kept it a little tighter at the back, that may not have mattered . It's good he's finally fessed up to this inexcusable error, but please fellow posters let's not see next season anymore moronic in " Bielsa I trust " hashtags or sarcastic criticisms of posters that have the temerity to question " God's " judgement, with comments like : " so you think you can do a better job than MB " . Please leave that to the fools on twitter and elsewhere . This site is too good for that! I love the guy, but he's human and makes mistakes like the rest of us which need to be highlighted and discussed .

Well put for a bloke red hot, hindsight is wonderful. Too many fifa players on here think they know better than lord bielsa. All joking aside it was a great post and makes total sense.

10 Jun 2019 14:46:56
I think it's bold to use the word "Moronic" in the context of your fellow posters, your fellow Leeds fans. Some might take that as you calling your fellow Leeds fans Morons. Those people won't take kindly to it. But what would I know? I'm just a moron 😉.

10 Jun 2019 15:02:40
So you think you can do a better job than MB? I don't think we should be questioning god's judgement.


10 Jun 2019 15:42:38
So we criticize him when he doesn’t change his mind and we criticize him when he does! What I think is funny is that after we appoint someone who is famed for being self confident, self opinionated or stubborn depending on your take, we seem surprised when he is all or one of those things! He is what he is and that is definitely very human, but I like him for all of that! Let’s just remember that all of us are human as well and we all make mistakes!

Let’s see how he responds to having a year in the championship!

10 Jun 2019 15:50:46
We've been called morons before Southern.

10 Jun 2019 16:03:50
Spanish may be re - read my post . No criticism of MB for changing his mind “ better late than never “, just criticism of the original error and delay in correcting it . As for the hashtag “ in Bielsa we trust “, I love it in its general sense of trusting the man to take us forward . But when it’s used as a stick to beat any fan who questions his decisions, then in that context, I have an issue . Southern all Leeds fans are my “ brothers “ . But I have been known to call out my own brothers for doing something “ moronic “ . Doesn’t mean I don’t love them .

{Ed001's Note - I think people need to understand the distinction between doing something moronic and being a moron. We all do stupid things, but it does not mean we are stupid.}

RHC It's like looking into my own mind.

Not popular but if I was running the place I'd look to spread and distribute the strength evenly across the back 4 especially central defenders. I'd sell Pontus for £11m probably to Benfica and wish Bera bye then get Barbet and Elphick on frees. If I could I'd also try land Michael Hector on loan or permanent.
Coyle would back up Ayling at right back and Douglas would back up Alioski at left back with Davis. Cooper, Barbet, Elphick, Halme, Struick and Diaz sufficient strength in depth centrally and at that point we've not really spent too mucb having profited from the Swede. Simples.

10 Jun 2019 17:51:42
Alf! LOL! 👍🏻🍻.

10 Jun 2019 18:36:47
It's funny how God isn't able to address the problem of his teams fading in later stages of the season. Look a run of 6 or 7 losses and these worshipers will be the first to turn.

10 Jun 2019 18:56:08
The only words that grate George are " Alioski at left back"

10 Jun 2019 20:37:45
RHC you are making the assumption we are actually looking at White and it’s not just paper talk.


10 Jun 2019 20:56:24
leodis, I have to agree 👏.

10 Jun 2019 21:37:05
Red hot, just lots of criticism for how long he took to change his mind when he should have changed it as soon as you decided! The first three sentences are all critical, “ finally accepted” “boobed” “ he refused to” “ he failed to correct this error” “ neglected to correct the error” “ better late than never”! People always want to appoint a manager and tell him how to manage, of course he makes mistakes like all of us but he took the team to 3rd in the table and yet we all on here could have done better with the same resources! If it was that easy and Radz was that tight don’t you think he’d pay you 250 k a year to manage the team and save 2.25 million.

10 Jun 2019 23:13:53
So Spanish you are basically saying football fans shouldn’t question or criticise a manager’s decisions because we could not do the job ourselves . Isn’t that a bit like saying we can’t criticise a prime minister or a Doctor who makes an error because we could not do their jobs?

10 Jun 2019 23:42:46
This is assuming that we keep Jansson or replace him if he is sold.

10 Jun 2019 23:44:53
Elphick and Coyle not good enough George. Sell Jansson and replace him with an inferior player not a good idea.

10 Jun 2019 23:45:24
Bloody hell Wex you used to be a positive geezer!
For a man that used to and I believe still does laud Cellino you do have me scratching my head. I’m an optimist fair enough but I amazed you are so negative towards our chairman and now manager it seems. Just enjoy imo all the good stuff happening at ER! MOT.

10 Jun 2019 23:46:01
Couldn’t have put it better myself Spaniard!

10 Jun 2019 23:47:31
Just like to add a point. What centre back should we have signed. Any ideas? Because January is a tough time to bring players in.

11 Jun 2019 00:01:49
Wex and I come back to the same point, do we really understand what happened in the run in and for me particularly Wigan and Derby. I’m really interested to see how Bielsa 2 develops, don’t think he’s God, the Messiah or a naughty boy, but I love the way he plays and the passion he brings to the job. First challenge for me is to get us to the New year in contention again and playing good football. Why I thought he might go, is I thought he might not think he was able to do it again and I feared a bad start and people calling for change and him walking. The fact he has stayed is a think there is a feeling it can be done, let’s see!

11 Jun 2019 01:21:58
Love you all, always as my LUFC brothers n sisters, but a bit shocked and disheartened at some of the anti Radz and Bielsa crap I have read on here tonight. Rhey have done cracking job. Credit where credit is due guys. Slating them whilst slating anyone who slates you for slating them? Perplexed. Utterly butterly perplexed. Haven't been in such a good spot for years, but let's wimper n wimper about how bad it all is and point fingers. Nah, I will back em. MOT.

11 Jun 2019 09:37:04
Red Hot, I was answering your statement that you weren’t being critical of Bielsa for changing his mind, I think you were, look at the words you used. Everyone has the right to be critical of everything, it’s massively important to have critical people around. Some errors are factual others are much more about subjective opinion, whether Harrison is good enough, whether you should pick Beradi etc. If you paid an architect a fortune, I guess you’d really hope you could trust his ideas rather than switching to what a financial advisor suggested on the back of a fag packet! Criticise away but then always be prepared to be criticised for your criticism!

11 Jun 2019 09:38:52
Great post Toryscum. Club going massively in the right direction, Radz, Orta, Bielsa and Carlos have to have played a big part in it!

11 Jun 2019 10:49:29
Good morning fellow posters

Wow, loving this particular thread.

And do you know what I can see all sides
RHC. I can understand your frustrations. We were so very very close and yes, a few tweeks during the latter end of the season may well have got us over the line and to the Promised Land (P. L. Premier League) . I know whenever I make a mistake I try to make sure I do it better next time. I think we all hope Biesla is similar. He will reflect on the past season and be more capable for the next one.

George. I think your being totally rational in speculating that Jansson may be sold. He is a bl00dy good player and deserves to be playing at the highest standard he can, and be rewarded properly. He is no spring chicken. And Barbet and Elphick are good shouts. Both have experience in thus division and possibly Elphick is a good leader too

Spanish, Alf, Brighty. as always love the positivity, and don't worry I don't think Radz or Biesla make decisions based on reading "leedsrumours. co. ". This is just us fans discussing all things Leeds

So, anybody want a cocktail and 10 minutes in the "hot tub of hope" now Mr Biesla has vacated?

11 Jun 2019 11:01:43
Here what your saying Spanish . But on the whole think you and others of your persuasion visa vis the club have been drinking just a little too much Kool Aid for my taste . Corkwhite re CB’s in Jan and their unavailability, a certain Mr Tyrone Mings happened to be pretty instrumental in Villa’s promotion.

11 Jun 2019 12:00:30
RHC, good call regarding Mings, but I believe that Villa disregarded the FFP in their quest to reach the Promised Land and possibly the signing of Mings was amongst that carefree attitude

It looks like LUFC are taking the said FFP a lot more seriously and so our budget is not going to be as high as those around. Its unfortunate, but I can live with a more prudent stance given the plummeting we did after Risdale.
