So the integrity and class of Barcelona comes to the fore again. Allegedly, they are planning to withdraw their contract offer to Dembele, to get him off their books, which may see them come back for Rapha with something a tad more realistic. Hoping Chelsea make an offer soon to get the undoubted auction underway. That said, I agree with OP that we should be going all out to keep him with a new, vastly improved contract.

Read that Tyro is off to Cardiff. Don't quote me on it. Wants to secure his place at possibly his only shot at a World Cup tournament, and knows staying at Leeds could kaibosh that!

$2 a litre over here. How much there?
I will give him a piggy back.

Pinch of salt with this I reckon, but I heard last night that Raph is considering staying! Not keen on Arsenal or Spuds as he thinks he would be playing rotationally which may damage his WC ambitions! He knows he would play most games here, and be able to showcase his talent against exactly the same teams. i. e. not CL level.

I think the first thing Raphinha needs to do is sack Deco as his agent!
He rejected Liverpool on his behalf.
Only has eyes on Barcelona or Chelsea? I wonder why that may be.
I mean Rapha good but he’s not a guarantee starter at any of the clubs reportedly after him/.

Vids look like Bogusz is in the mix next season, which is good news. Add Kun Temenuzhkov, and we have a midfield with The rest of the talent!

There was a time when he looked like he would be the best thing since Gazza, talent wise. Obvs he just wazzed it on the porcelain too. Sad.

I see Barcelona are taking the piddle again, offering £34m for Lewandowski. They literally do not have a pot to pee in, and with Dembele saying he wants to stay, will have no relief to their wage structure or a cash cow to milk. As one of their ex directors said, they are merely blowing hot air up their own fans arses!

Stolen, and pasted, but to me, it explains everything. Sorry it's so long. (Said the vicar) .

This is a very good article by Graham Smyth on Bielsa. 👇🏽👇🏽

Marcelo Bielsa receives fitting Leeds United farewell with lingering anxiety consigned to the past
With Premier League safety secured, Leeds United can finally reflect on Marcelo Bielsa's tenure with a glint in their eye
By Graham Smyth
Saturday, 28th May 2022, 6:00 am

It seemed beyond the comprehension of certain pundits and journalists why Marcelo Bielsa wasn't 'under pressure' at Leeds United until the very end.

They didn't get why he spoke in Spanish and used a member of his staff as a translator. They didn't get why, in his first season in the Premier League, there was no outrage from Whites fans after heavy defeats and why there was no 'plan B' to speak of. They didn't get him. But Leeds fans did.

It is a hard thing to understand and articulate, especially if you don't share the love that he and the supporters had for Leeds United and each other.

He was the man who gave them something to be proud of, football to salivate over and a promotion to write in big, bold lettering in the history books.

He was the man who took mid-table Championship players and transformed them to such an extent that they held down a top 10 position in the Premier League. Bielsa made them running machines who could find each other with a pass without thinking or even, at times, without looking. He made them better, he made them fitter and he made them richer.

For Bielsa, Leeds fans were the ones who gave him and the team a love that was unconditional. Of course it helped that he won so many games in his first season and masterminded so many sparkling performances, but his hope was that people would value performances and play a patient, supportive role like in his romantic notion of English football's days gone by. So when, with the team sinking to a low ebb, the fans stayed with the team, they gave him his wish.
It made no sense, to the neutral observer - if such a thing exists when Leeds United play football - that those in the grounds sang through the disappointment of defeats. But Bielsa and Leeds made complete sense - defiant outsiders against all comers, against it all.

In football everything good comes to an end eventually and the way this love affair reached its conclusion will forever be debated. The team looked lost in their final games under Bielsa and answers to problems he had previously solved suddenly escaped him. Things that had made Leeds so different and so good took on the appearance of millstones dragging them down.
But the collective cry of anguish that greeted his sacking said it all about the Argentine and his West Yorkshire family.
There is no doubt that it wounded Bielsa greatly, as it did the fans, but both were left with memories of a time that didn't have to be understood by outsiders, because it was being lived by Leeds.

The smile on his face when he lifted the Championship trophy was the same smile that greeted well wishers at his Wetherby flat when promotion was secured, young supporters welcoming him to Elland Road on a match day or devotees asking for a selfie in Morrisons.

With them, Bielsa was normal and that made him abnormal in the modern game so the nostalgia for his era will not be restricted to goals and points. For Leeds, for a time, he was perfect. In Leeds he was understood.

I didn’t bother.
Abridged please.

Brilliant article Brighty,

And without Bielsa none of it would of happened, even people not a fan of the great man needed the tables to turn before criticism was merited, I’ll always maintain without our injuries……well that’s the past.

Hope they invite him back or do something to recognise his achievements.

But I do now recognise Radz incredibly risky, brave decision was proven to be correct. (After all it was HIS business)

Different strategy required now under JM either he finds his own magic formula otherwise we need significant investment, without making Everton’s mistake of spending huge amounts on a number of highly rated ‘individual self centred’ players.

Without a cohesive team genuinely fighting for each other you’re back to fighting for survival.


3.) 31 May 2022 08:20:40
Mr Bielsa was so unlucky with injuries to vital players of his squad like you say even in big defeats nobody got is back he was and is leeds united legend anyone say anything elsa about Mr bielsa didn't see him as proper football fans but there enthusiasm remains the same where all fans . ot wigan whites my hope is jesse brings Bielsa ball with 2 at back at all times we had to many ofenceif players.

It galls me, but I will be rooting for the dog botherers today, purely for Carlos, and the Bielsa effect. He has worked a miracle there, and it's a testament to his mentor what he has achieved. Cooper is a very good manager too by the way.

Me too Brighty, mainly because I dislike Forest even more, and would be keen to sign Brennan Johnson.


2.) 28 May 2022 13:17:40
What Class said.


3.) 28 May 2022 19:05:12
For Leeds Forest would probably be a bigger threat in the Premier League than Huddersfield you'd like to think with the right recruitment of players we'll be head and shoulders above the teams coming up plus 3-4 teams already established.

Negativity and bone chewing needs to be done with now. Let's just see what happens in the window . Be positive, be hopeful. Come august, then start slagging the board. It's only just started, and we have signed a 21 yr old international. It's only going to get better. "Send that list to Orta". sheite!

CdK would be a great signing, and arguably a long term upgrade on BamBam.
Foster is a no brainier for me as he would’ve push Meslier as well as being the experienced mentor that he not had for two years. All good signs imo. ??????.

Corky bud. My initial reaction was based on reports of £42m! Which seemed shocking. Should come out at more like £55m.

Chris mate, those prices, for those people, make it all the more shocking. I have however read now that the price is likely to be more like £55m, which is closer to the mark. I hope Kal continues to flourish, and enjoys a fantastic World Cup.

Very true Alf. I just get the impression, that with everything that has happened, he will just want regular football, and stability for his family, who are reportedly happy and settled in London.

Let’s face it, at 26, when else / what better time, to be playing CL, and competing seriously for all of the domestic trophies. If we had kicked on last season, and finished top 10, he might have stayed, but we didn’t thanks to the board. It was clear he was going after the last game at ER.

Imagine him walking into Everton on New Year’s Day as their new manager, and them immediately getting deducted 15 points for breach of FFP. De Ja Poo, anyone!? I’d wet mi’sen.
