Marching On Together - The Leeds Thread

Leeds sack their manager , surprise surprise.


#243

Joke of club seriously. Will never get back up if they keep on sacking managers


#244

Not exactly a surprise, is it. He was appointed in February to improve their chances of making the play-offs and they only won 4 games since his arrival… that was regulation form.

Who knows what hair brain scheme Radrizzani has in mind to replace him? Media chat is hinting at former Argentina boss Marcelo Bielsa. His nickname is ‘El Loco’ , … sounds perfect for Leeds :cry: :cry:


#245

Fifth consecutive season coming up where we have started with a new manager, and the next man will be the tenth since 2014. :persevere:


#246

Bielsa, the guy who inspired Guardiola? Or another Bielsa?


#247

The Bielsa. Some coup.


#248

He was shortlisted for the Real job. These yanks must be pumping serious money in


#249

He won’t last there - he’ll either run or be ran.


#250

Jaysus you lot are as pessimistic as…four Yorkshiremen. Aye, in them days we were lucky to 'ave the price of a cup of tea.


#251

New money men on board. Id expect a different outlook from here on in. The intention the sign one of the best football coaches in the world suggests that. This certainly isn’t a cheap option and id imagine it would break the bank to try and sack him assuming his contract is in line with his previous work


#252

Bielsa as suited to Leeds as the Russian guy was at hulk city. Mad idea really. These guys that own football clubs these days really have no sense at all.


#253

Getting one of the best coaches in the world shows no sense?


#254

Do you really think he s suited to English championship football ? Bielsa flits in and out of clubs and hangs around no more than a season usually. Leeds needs stability and a manager who understands the championship. Bielsa promises more than what he delivers and his cv bears this out. For one of the worlds best coaches allegedly his successes are thin enough. He seems a bit of a headcase imo.


#255

It 's a totally mad idea.

Leeds need somebody along the lines of Mick McCarthy, who knows the Division and has a record for providing long term stability at a club.

Not that I’m recommending him but they could do worse.


#256

But would he put his arse in the bacon slicer?!


#257

Dave Hockaday
Darko Milanic
Uwe Rosler
Steve Evans
Paul Heckingbottom

Are Leeds fans seriously not over the moon at this news looking at that list?


#258

Well he s certainly a step up in the exotic stakes for sure but his record is very patchy for someone so lauded. Does he speak English (does anyone in Yorkshire?), leaves clubs at the drop of a hat , left Lille in a desperate state on and off the pitch , his teams pick up a long injury list due to his style of play. Why compound all the other poor choices with another poor one.


#259

I don’t see it as a poor choice at all. He was shortlisted for the Real Madrid job. He’s a cut above anyone else in the championship. Potchetino had no English at Spurs yet he worked out well enough. Looks like Abel Hernandez is on his way to Leeds too. This could be the start of something special.


#260

So are guti and Raul shortlisted for real job and no management experience there. Think Pochettino s English was far better than he let on. Slavisa jokanovic would have been my choice but now Fulham are in the prem no chance of that.


#261

Been saying that for a while now. McCarthy would be a great choice for them but doubt he’d take it as they probably wouldn’t give him the time.
