Ben White is a good player and may go on to be a great player. Did Leeds, Bielsa and our system make him the player he currently is? Will he be as good elsewhere? For me as unproven in premier league and without international recognition, he is not in the £40m bracket. He may become a player worth that amount but for me the jury is still out . He has benefitted greatly by coming to play for us under Bielsa and likewise we have had player who has been in many eyes our player of the season.

Sitting here reflecting on the season I never thought we would get to 93 pts. The figure I had in my mind at resumption we would need to be certain was 87pts. Looking at the final points tallies 82 pts would have seen us up and 84pts up as champions. We cannot underestimate how well Bielsa has done and I know he has a great CV but not many knew much about him when he was appointed.

One other thing Messi is calling for Bielsa to go to Barcelona and this is a true sign of how highly he is regarded yet in some quarters of the media in the UK, they still try to discredit him.

i think due to the virus it is impossible to say anyone's value at the moment as the market seems volitile and unpredictable

but i do agree on your comments on ben white. for me his value should be the same as Phillips, both played well in the same team under belisa have had a lot of praise, subject to interest and links to the england team. I would say both are valued at 20 million however some on here have said phillips is worth 40 million at least so i guess by what they have done white would have to be a similar vaule

as for belisa at Barcelona i think he will see the job out at leeds, he may be el loco but he is a noble and decent man and will see the job out, i don't think he is one to jump ship.

1970 You sound surprised that some of the UK media underappreciate Bielsa. Here are 3 reasons why you shouldn't be. 1. He's Argentinean. Um, the Falklands and hand of Mara. 2. Spygate will never be forgotten because it was against "FF's Derby". 3. Most importantly, he's the manager of Leeds United, the most beloved club of England.

Tell you what surprises me is the level of appreciation he has received in the unbiased 😆 UK media.

Oh and Mr Scottish Subtitles Fergie Time, we weren't in the Championship for 16 years. Only 13. The other 3 were in League One. Personally, I hope it's an omen and we see Bielsa manage our club for 16 or 13 years will be fine.

40 million, 20 million? No ones worth that amount. I don’t begrudge anyone making a living but life goes on after football so do like rugby league and play for the love of the game and then do what normal people do and get a job for the remaining 30 years of their life’s.

Oh yeah. Equally good at football and rugby league. Can play at a top level in both sports. The player is going to pick rugby! c'mon Tad.

huge difference between rugby leage and football. the fans and money in it. of course footballers are going to get paid more they bring in a lot of money and are worth it. Players bring in big prize money, big sponsorship and big gate recitpes. Bit like in my industry fringe theatre is min wage hollywood movies is millions because there is money in one and not the other.

Your missing my point cork. All I’m saying is they're all overpaid. Back in the revie days players used to go get ordinary jobs once retired. My old man reckons reaney started a painting a decorating firm up after. Too much money in the game today.

Taddy, lots of jobs are overpaid in relation to the jobs that make a difference to society. Think footballers earning lots of cash is sometimes frowned upon because they often come from working class backgrounds. There is tons of money in top flight football, lots going to agents, owners and others involved in the game. For one I’m glad that those actually producing the football and to a lesser extent coaching it are getting the rewards. In their own way they are heroes to millions and provide a lot of enjoyment and it’s a few market. It was scandalous that in the past, some of the greats made little from the game whilst others were profiting from it.

Players like anything else are worth what someone will pay. I agree it's not fair that some professions get so much more than others but acting is the same but what are you going to do. Boycott the product and its value goes down and wages will drop but until then sky's the limit.

Get paid well for having a skill then work like the rest after. It’s not like their not able bodied is it!
