If Barcelona call think Bielsa will go. Can he sort out the situation there domestically yes definitely even with the current squad . In Europe it will be more difficult . Playing in Spain the squad has enough players of quality, with a few really world class. When they played against B Munich they had too many players who are just not up to that standard.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not so sure, I think Bielsa has learned that established top players already think they are special so won't adapt to a new way of playing.
Cant imagine too many of them picking up rubbish in the Nou Camp parking lot!

IMO, Barcelona and Bielsa is not a fit, too many ageing players, prima Donna's who wouldn't accept the Bielsa way, club will wantvto bring in superstar players, Bielsa wants his players, can't see Barcelona being happy signing players who aren't known but Bielsa wants because he sees something in them.

Can't see it, bielsa being offered Barcelona, regardless of what he said I feel pocchetino will jump at the offer to manage his teams rivals .

Surely the Barcelona board would have a younger man in mind, amazing to think that this current Munich side were in such a rapid decline before Hansi Flich arrived,

Imagine also if alphonso had managed to sort himself out at Swansea, would he have progressed as he has done at Munich . Incredible potential.

Let’s remember that Bielsa only goes anywhere and stays there on his terms, carefully and painfully negotiated. I don’t think Barcelona would be able to agree to what Bielsa would want to do and it is probably more than a one year job! But I think he would listen if offered the opportunity as would anyone. In some ways he does fit the job Barcelona need to do, establish a new culture, with players committed to it and with a focus on bringing youth through. But he would need a president prepared to support him through some intial carnage!

If Bielsa is tbe honourable man I believe he is

Then there is little chance to no chance he will mess Leeds United around and leave Leeds United in the lurch at the very last moment to go to any other club.

Bazooka, I don’t think Bielsa is messing us about, he had a one year contract that has expired and both the club and him are still negotiating the extension. Both sides free to explore other options.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Bielsa and what he has done for the club, but his track record ‘and age don’t suggest that he will be at the club long term. He has done the job he was brought in to do and helped change the culture of the club. For that we should be ever grateful. He is though very conscious about how things can change very quickly and the job this year is very different one.

Very early on in Bielsas reign I met two mad Marseille fans who loved Bielsa, they said, “ enjoy him and every moment you are lucky to have him as a coach, it’ll be crazy, it won’t last for long and you’ll really miss him when he’s gone”!

If he got the chance to go to Barcelona, I wouldn’t begrudge him that, in fact they’d become my spanish team! Here’s an idea, Bielsa and Pochettino working together with the plan for Pochettino to take over longer term and build a dynasty!

Well time will tell Spanish hopefully Bielsa remains the Leeds manager this season 20/ 21 I am confident he will.

Spanish, you’re right

Big difference between Marseille and Leeds is our chairman

I think he realises that MB Is the key

The best leaders pick the best people for positions and let them do their job without interference.
