All this talk about playing different formations, about trying different set ups and changing the way we play.
Man City, Barcelona, Ath Madrid have all proved that this is the best brand of football to play.
You always have to play to your strengths and working hard to keep improving.

Spot on 70. Tried and tested.
We will get there, in fact we are still very close to being there, yet people call for heads to roll.
Bring back Hock and Heck as a duo.
Or warnock, who shipped out Luciano for Mozza.?

Exactly Leeds 1970

And its the critical lack of 3 to 4 key quality players last season especially post Christmas
With a better gk than BPF and Kiko . and Radz actually buying / recruitung last January transfer window another centre forward for the injured Roofe and a better wide player than Harrison abd a replacement for Saiz we would have been playing in the Premier League this year 100% no doubt.

George, BW, and others slate Bielsa who took over a team that had finished 13th the previous season but they continue to overlook the major reason for missing out on promotion. namely Radz.

Explain to me how Radz was the reason we missed out on promotion?
Nowt to do with injuries, the Villa shambles, the Swansea reneging on the James deal, the calamity keeping against the sheep, attitude of a previously revered player?

Bahypocrisy I have repeatedly acknowledged Radz has hardly been perfect. Even today his choice of pronoun in a tweet highly objectionable. My stance on Bielsa has been play 2 up front at home. That's all I want him to do. I was the first on here to call for that. Away from home his set up and tactics are fine. I have called for him to go unless he plays the style I want. He's a very good coach but needs to adapt.
1970 The sides you mention are in a different league and different country apart from Citeh who are able to pull off their brand due to owning world class players. Again, we are in the Championship playing Millwall and Luton Town. It's a vastly different animal.

Why do you keep berating Radz?

He bought the club when Cellino was hamstrung by GFH.

He paid off the leech-like affect of GFH.

He NEVER stated he was a billionaire with oodles of money to splash.
(Btw the Bristol City chairman is, and even he isn't stupid when it comes to spending (hence he us a billionaire and we are not) )

He was prepared to pay £7m for a player (Dan James) that no one had heard of before a Biesla PowerPoint presentation (Giggs wasnt busting his door down before that) .

He has bought Elland Road.
Sure 'HE' bought it and not Leeds United, but Leeds United are £2m/ year better off as he isn't asking us for rent. Further to that, Leeds United DO get the match day revenues, unlike with previous chairmen.

He is in the process of establishing a training centre that is more accessible for youth players to attend (hence we might get better youth players wanting to come to us)

He gave long contracts to players that he believes are necessary to a long term project (he has admitted that some of them were in error) .

Really not sure what more he can do to just be a normal chairman like 80% of those in the football league. I know we haven't got a moneybags Citeh chairman, but neither have we got a Bury chairman, or and Owen Oysten at Blackpool or even a Man Utd chairman (the world's richest club, employing a second rate manager and players, but only worried about revenue)

Sermon over.

I agree Barca, altlietico, Liverpool city all show that is the best way to play football. when you have the best players.

Burley have shown how you can punch above weight when you have smaller budget and lesser players. horses for courses. Mb at leeds is somtimes like trying to drive a corsa like it is an F1 car. sometimes a change is needed.

our faluire to beat lesser teams who must love playing the championship Barcelona and beating them every time. must lay at the managers door. our form since last Xmas must lay at the managers door. if we don't go up. which i am pretty sure we wont. it must lay at the managers door

please show some abition Belisa took us from 13th to 3rd and then this year 3rd to who knows where

wilde took sheff utd from league one to winning in the prem. warnock too cardiff from relegation to nearly staying in the prem. farke took norwhich from below us to prem. Smith took Villa from 14th to prem in half a season

MB has done alright. but he ain't done great. why can't we want better?
