In Bielsa’s recent comments on clubs being penalized for breaking the FFP rules.

"For me, it’s the same if they don’t correct this. I am not demanding punishment for clubs that don't accept the rules, I am demanding you recognise people who do accept the rules and in line with the rules because it’s easy to say the club doesn’t invest, the director of football doesn't do his work or I am too demanding” Marcelo Bielsa.

So this underlines that Leeds United under Radz are not going to be over spending and ignoring the rules, like B’ham, Sheffield Wed, Derby Villa etc.
They will all be held to account eventually.

So we as fans should understand better and accept the way our club is run and financed. correctly!

Unhappily agree opti.

But you haven't mentioned the years of under investment, yes Radz has done lots right but we cannot forget what the lack of signings cost us last January.

Under investment? He bought the club, bought the ground back, we bought a player for 15 million the most in the last 14-15yrs he’s building a new training facility at a cost of 25mill. I know he’s making the club a better propersition to anyone looking to buy which he stands to gain from but when was the last time we were this secure financially and run like a proper business not a Risdale business.

Martyn my under investment quote is aimed at the squad side of things, I totally accept the white collar side of things are an awful lot healthier now, but ALL aspects of the business should see investment, we sold a lot to balance the amortized payments of Costa +Bamford, no one can deny/ defend that lack of said investment cost us a place in the premiership last season.

And by the way LUFC didn't buy the ground back, a separate company bought the ground back so there's where the ownership lies not with LUFC.

for me it is not about investment but success

if sheff utd, norwich, wigan, bouremouth, wigan, blackpool, swansea, huddlefield. the list goes on

these have all been promoted since FFP has come in. None of them have our fan base, none of them have our income, none of them have had our amazing youth and money from sales of that youth (which is why i don't include saints who have made more money through sales)

so why ain't we gone up? why can't this wonder manager do what lesser managers have done with lesser clubs?

there is no excuse for not going up this year. spend or not Belisa in two years should of done what wilde, wagner, warnock, faulke all did in one season. all of whom did so with 'weaker' playing sqauds and without spending money.

Stil his money Chris.

Using Wigan twice to lengthen your list! That's a bit sneaky Berm! 😂😂.

BW don't agree at al that teams that have gone up had 'weaker squads' than Leeds United
For instance Sheffield United had 4 forwards last season we had just 2 both of whom. were injured for lengthy periods .
Leeds found it more and more difficult as the season went on to score goals Sheffield United did not . that. was the key factor

This season we are now the only club in world football to have just striker in the first team squad

We will not go up up under Radz and Orta . Bielsa has been good but has his faults and will be gone in 4 months .

# just ONE striker.
