First time poster on here, been a supporter since 1975. seen some good seasons, but many indifferent and bad seasons over the decades.

In Bielsa first season Leeds had their highest league position the past 15 years . the previous year with the same players they came 13th.

Bielsa has his faults, but he is far BETTER than all the previous managers we have
had to suffer for the past 15 years and I include Grayson in that list whose highest leagues position was 7th

The real issue is with Radz under investment year in year out - therein lies the real problem.

Perfect first post, Bazooka! 👍.

Bazooka Welcome. I disagree. Your view however will go down a treat with a poster named Wex. Radz has underinvested no question but not significantly and this is not the reason for our problems. The reason is our manager who concentrates more on overstudying opponents and playing formations and styles designed to make us look good, look very good in fact but ultimately we flatter to deceive due to a paucity in goals. Some of that problem is Paddy's flagging fortunes in front of goal but most of it is due to the style which underpins it. This is demonstrated further by the fact our midfield best in league so our possession stats great but leads to little goal threat except for the customary overload in the box which is why we see our full backs do well. More proof is available via Bielsa's intransigence regarding the cavalier attitude he has to solid central defenders. No depth, no physicality exacerbated by a refusal to introduce Struick. Yet this is the Championship. It's not the much slower Italian Serie A or an international game where it's more about passing and no-one wants to get injured. It's the hustle and bustle of the Championship brimming with energy, physicality and set pieces. Wrong system, wrong manager. Simples.

With better higher quality players in key positions Bielsa wouldn't be the perfect manager for us.

Radz under investment and lack of plater recruitment activity in January transfer window striker wide player is the real reason we are not in the EPL this season.

George without the injuries to Roofe and/ or if Radz had actually signed James we would have come 1st or 2bd and been promoted. all thev previous 15 years of systens from leeds managers not even close to achieving that Simples.

Not wrong system or manager George. just a few key positions lacking
quality players because of Radz lack of funding for top quality. Simples.

Bazooka Every poster on here knows I criticized Radz heavily for failing to acquire James. We've ended up with Coffee instead.

Bazooka Name the players who are lacking in quality who you'd replace. First teamers please.

06 Oct 2019 12:50:08
I know you did George . i read your posts since January.
But you prove my point Radz January transfer window is tbe reason we didn't get promoted not Bielsa.

The James signing was over the line until that plum from Swansea went against the instructions of the owners. Radz not to blame for the collapse of the transfer that would have seen us promoted!

07 Oct 2019 10:30:55
incorrect bright, it was not over the line till Jenkins done his thing.
You forgot. to mention the little fact that Radz only wanted a loan of Danny till may which he was rightly told yabba dabba do 1, radz is too blame for the james debacle, tried to do it on the cheapy yet AGAIN .
Radz is creaming it at leeds but the poor mouth that he constantly uses seems to work on a lot of people .
Uf there's no money at leeds then god help the likes of Brentford, Reading etc all those other smaller clubs.
