Has Bielsa gained his reputation for the free flowing quality of his football. For the delight to the eye. For the pleasure to watch, for it certainly isn't for the trophies won or the titles gained. For all his advances at Leeds, and we should be forever grateful, his flaws may each year ultimately doom us to abject, but glorious, failure.

Why can't he; work with a larger squad, give U23s a chance instead of flogging a small squad to death in what is a demanding system, see the failings of some of his "pets", for once have a Plan B. In essence stop being so intransigent. I maybe being greedy and I know we are second and I know we have a 6 point gap but I know what happened last year and I know first hand the taste of failure many times before I just want the great man to loosen up and learn this year.

The "small squad" statement was spin by Rads and Co to cover up for a lack of investment in players.
They twisted MB's words around, a statement about working intensely with players to get the best out of them and not undertaking this work with players who had no chance of playing.
His view was it was better to work with smaller numbers to get the most out of players who can reach the levels required and this then became, he likes working with a small squad.
MB says the players fitness levels are good on all the test but that doesn't cover players being stale and loosing form.

Was it only a few weeks ago it was 11 point gap, or am I going mad after what I saw yesterday? 6 point gap is fine if we keep winning, but we seem to have forgotten how to win.

small sqaud is his style

everything great about leeds is due to bleisa. everything bad about leeds is also due to belisa. like all leaders he is stubborn. and like all leaders it is what makes them good and bad and often is the start of thier own downfall.

Yes Bermo He was stubborn when Radz hired him so its really not Bielsas fault. He was also a non winner. He does play exciting, entertaining, free flowing football and that's what makes you fall in love with him but don't marry him thinking you can change him. He is sadly too old a dog for any new tricks.
