You can achieve great things with Leeds United, but rarely the way you want to. Here is what people get for giving everything to Leeds.
In a season of surprises, Leeds United are now both on holiday and the best team in the Premier League, another feat for the record books.
Bielsa’s Leeds have not adapted to the Premier League this season, they’ve just got better at being themselves, and now the Premier League has to adapt its understanding of what Bielsa’s Leeds are all about.
When Leeds woke up on Saturday morning, they’d achieved nothing so far. Apart from gaining the ability to do anything they want.
Leeds United can put Brighton on the list, then, with Wigan, QPR and any team managed by Garry Monk, of clubs confronting Marcelo Bielsa with an inexplicable hex.
Marcelo Bielsa might be loco, but he’s not tonto.
I wonder what part Leeds United plays in the minds of the people behind the European Super League. Our last sixteen years is the exact scenario the Super League is designed to avoid.
Nobody should be surprised now if Marcelo Bielsa wins the Premier League with Leeds United one day. Leeds is where it all comes true. A man is a madman until his ideas triumph, Bielsa once said, or until he moves to West Yorkshire.
Paul Heckingbottom sees problems and Marcelo Bielsa enacts solutions and it’s that simple.
