I read posts on this site since the end of last season until I finaly had time and guts join it. I was staggered half way through this season how many people turned on our manager and chairman (you all know who you are πŸ‘‰) some saying sack bielsa he never does better the second season, one person even said we would be lucky to finish top ten and Philips would be found out as a fraud and bielsa needed sacking and radz Was useless. Can't remember names but wondered what your views are now as most see him as a savour type figure, me included I love the man and want him here for as long he's willing to manage our great team in this fantastic city.

Always been a big fan of Bielsa this season and previous season. The only time I wavered slightly was when Bub continued to pick Kiko this season despite Kiko making lots of mistakes and costing us points against Cardiff, Forest, Brentford etc
But Bielsa for me in our top 3 best managers ever.

I have been a fairly fierce critic at times of Radz and to a lesser extent Orta ; particularly over ther failure of the Jan transfer window in 2019 which I have no doubt cost us promotion with Sheff United also in the same window signing 2 strikers and Oliver Norwood.

However, my criticism is tempered by Radz and Orta excellently arranging the amazing coup of bringing in Bielsa and they have also been excellent
in some matters such as improving considerably the Leeds United brand and a building a stronger passionate even prouder mutual bond with the citizens/ fans of the city of Leeds and beyond with Leeds United football club. So kudos to Radz and Orta on that, my feelings towards them have improved.

Nice post Taddy, you forgot to mention about somebody saying Sam Allardyce would be a good replacement! Nearly chocked on that! πŸ€ͺ.

well i have been by a mile one of the biggest critics on this site

i said sack belisa, i said phillips is over rated and think rads is a bit tto tight with money

I have said eaerlier today on the site at the moment i am wrong and long may it continue, love being proven wrong

as for my views. well i do think belisa is stubborn to a fault. i do think we are useless at defending set plays and high balls which has cost us goals and points.

I stil do not rate phillips

having watched all our game over and over agian during the virus i think my views are all vaild and true. Phillips can't defend and often at fault for our goals and the ratio of set plays conceeded to goals conceeded is very high

this all said we are top and that is all that matters so fair play to the manager, to phillips and everyone else at the club. long may they continue to prove me wrong.

Err BW you say in your post ' I have said earlier today I am wrong' about sacking Bielsa and 'fair play to the manager, Phillips and everyone else at the club for proving you wrong '

(I seem to. recall you also regularly in your posts called for either Warnock or Allardyce to replace Bielsa mid season πŸ₯΄) .

You then go onto say BW in your post ' . I think ALL. my views are valid and true'

Err lol somewhat confused BW have you been right or wrong? . I would say looking at the league table you have been mostly wrong πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘.

this arguement is hypotechtical.

last season we had a huge crash. the worst of any club ever at this level. so maybe if last season we brought in warnock he would of got us over the line and we would be in prem now. we will never know

now when i say my points are vailid. to a degree they are. we are useless at defending set plays and high balls (sunday league standard) and it has cost us points. however that said we are top despite this flaw.

so is my point right. yes that is a huge weakness however they are proving me wrong as they look like going up and i didn't think we would so fair play to them

So yes you are right despite my points being vaild i am mostly and hugely wrong and long may that continue.

Thanks for clarifying BW

I would add that Radz not Bielsa was the reason for not going up last season re failed Jan window.

02 Jun 2020 16:54:15
i agree BV rads inactivity in the transfer window was awful however Belisa is the gaffer. now he must get praise for how well we are doing but by the same rules he must get some blame for our record breaking explosion and fall from grace last season

is stubborness is his streanght and his strenght is his weakness.

02 Jun 2020 17:40:52
And also
We may have done worse if we had brought warnock in! Who knows.

02 Jun 2020 19:41:44
exactly Taddy we culd of done a lot worse and if belisa gets us up this season I can have no arguement and he will of made me look proper stupid and I will love that.
