I hope the speculation is only half wrong. Personally I would like MB to stay. He will have learned so much from this season and with the right additions we will be in strong position to storm season 19/ 20.
As for the other half, don't care so long as he is a Multi Billionaire with deep pockets.

Time's up!
Why would Bielsa stay? he has proven his point with a mediocre team. I see big things for him. but not at Leeds.

22 Apr 2019 21:03:47
Actually Metisse, if we don’t go up he hasn’t proved anything! Well apart from the adage that his teams perform in the first half of the season but not the second! Remember he was happy with these players, not overly concerned about recruiting in January and responsible for the strategy and team and sub choices. I’m not sure he will have the heart for a second season if we don’t go up.

22 Apr 2019 21:22:13
Agree Spanish we were in the driving seat 2 games ago we all believed that we were going to do it. Knuckle down now and concentrate on the rest of the season.

22 Apr 2019 21:35:32
I think he will, me Spaniard. He’s not one to be defeated, and if we don’t go up, god forbid, I think he will fight tooth and nail to do it next season.

22 Apr 2019 23:12:16
Yes Brighty. I hope he does the honourable thing and builds on what has been 95% of a brilliant season. His analytical mind will have taught him many a lesson for next season. I just hope that his stubborn, bloody mindedness does not get in the way. No, to go straight up in the first year would have been a minor miracle. To do it next year will give us greater strength to stay there when we get there.

22 Apr 2019 23:13:14
You’re right Bright, not something we need to talk about yet. I’d love to have the chance to sit down with him and talk about what he’s learnt this year and how he would try to do it differently. If it comes to that, he’ll really need to feel that he can do it. I’m sure it takes a lot out of him.

At the end of the day, our squad is not good enough. Saiz and Baker not replaced, Browne was a waste of a squad number. Too many journey men players, not enough quality. The stats show MB has done a great job. Rads tried to do it on the cheap. He has made a £5m net investment with other agreed transfer funds still to come in.3 or 4 decent loans in Jan would have cost a few million. Failed to spend and lost out on the £170 million payday jackpot. Everyone can see what was needed, what is lacking. We should have won this league by 10 points when you look back on all the points we have thrown away purely down to not bringing in the players needed in January.

I've been saying this actually from last August and many pushed the ludicrous MOT mantra of BELIEVE.
A bench full of kids and no experience means the teams like Brentford today laughing at us and I believe deservedly.
If we don't get the last place for promotion it's the wilderness if Bielsa leave despite all the abuse he's getting form "Leeds fans" on here now and he packs it in.
Then who are the real Leeds fans?!

22 Apr 2019 21:48:31
Don’t understand that post Metisse.

22 Apr 2019 21:43:06
Erm, who in this team is a journeyman? Paul Butler isn’t here anymore, and apart from king Pablo, this is a young team! Look at the accounts. If we’d spent heavy in Jan, we’d have fallen foul of FFP, even with our amazing crowds, utter nonsense.

22 Apr 2019 20:20:54
This is not the same team that brought me such joy, climbing the table. Amongst other things the missing element, that others have, is consistency and that, I believe, is due to the quality (or lack of it) running through the squad. Bielsa can raise them to outperform on occasions but unfortunately not enough times. There are times when they play to their very average level and this drags those around them down to a very average performance. IF, Bielsa stays (and I hope he does) the close season will be very interesting if he is backed by the owner (whoever that may be) New QUALITY blood is needed. Unfortunately there are too many journeymen filling spaces.

Not the time yet to have the debate, but if we don’t go up not sure Bielsa will want to stay. If he does he needs to be clear on what he has learnt this year and what needs to be changed. Then the club needs to decide if they can support that. I think Bielsa has kept the team with him this year because right until the very end we have been up there. If ultimately the experiment doesn’t come off then I think it will be a good time for a quick but focused rethink.

22 Apr 2019 20:43:30
A bit late with this now!

22 Apr 2019 21:49:32
Why? The season hasn’t finished yet and we still have a chance to go up!

22 Apr 2019 20:03:06
One thing for sure is that the press and the footballing world now will be labelling us as bottlers who choked when the going got tough. We either take that title and live with it or we go again and prove them wrong via the playoffs. One thing for sure it's going to take 3 performances like the home game against WBA.

I look forward to Phil Hays marks out of ten. Maybe he will give them all the same marks.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2019 19:41:57
Am I right in thinking that 3rd plays 6th and 4th plays 5th in the playoffs?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2019 20:13:59
Yes. probably Derby.

22 Apr 2019 19:36:50
Made a diary entry on my way home, simply says "bugger".

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2019 20:08:36
Well at least you got something out of the game!

22 Apr 2019 19:26:06
You have to give credit to Sheffield United. They had a superb Easter and ruthlessly kept the pressure on on and it was too much for us.

Norwich are showing that it's not easy in the final straight as well, only 4 points from 4 games but they had more in the bag.

If it is the playoffs then it may be that the pressure will come off us a bit. Everybody is assuming that Villa will coast through including many in here.

At the moment I think our third position is a fair reflection of the seasons work. Lots of good stuff, lots of pressure but not quite enough quality at the most important times.

We've still got that chance, we can either give up or try to make the most of it.

Agree3 Disagree0

22 Apr 2019 19:39:08
and the blunts could make top. Seems we need 2points to be sure of 3rd.

22 Apr 2019 19:40:07
Spanish i love your posts. But looking at the season as a whole doesn't add up at this stage 4 games to go 3 points up and end up 3 points behind with 2 games to go against the teams we've just played. You can put lipstick on a pig bit its still a pig.

22 Apr 2019 19:40:11
What;s the tv programme called?
Put you money where your mouth is?
Derby will be laughing!

22 Apr 2019 19:47:23
Unless we play it cute. rest Henernadz until playoffs and use the next game against villa and maximise hard tackles. we are in play offs but as stated reality is too light in forward line.

22 Apr 2019 20:13:43
No one can really write the story of this season until the end of the play off final. I agree it’s been a rather disappointing Easter! But unless we write to the EFL and pull out of the play offs, then I guess we’ve got to play them and so we might as well see what we can do! And at least we’re in them!

22 Apr 2019 20:24:40
Right now in the whole of History there is only one man that had a worse Easter.

22 Apr 2019 21:37:06
He had a happy ending though 😊.

22 Apr 2019 21:50:50
A good perspective Spanish. As always.
The best football doesn’t always get you out of this league.
We just seem unable to deliver right now, though I’ll stand up and say the PL would be more interesting with us there than the other two.
That said, I still can’t hear a fat lady singing!

22 Apr 2019 19:25:27
Bielsa should blame himself aswell as the players. No plan B, only one change from the wigan debacle. What a huge missed opportunity over last 2 games. The players and staff should hang their heads, well done to Sheffield United, kept their heads while we looked like a desperate sunday league team. More pressure to come and don't think we have the players to do it, hope i'm wrong.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Apr 2019 19:44:42
The best new thing you can be sure of is that Bielsa will take the blame!

22 Apr 2019 20:29:30
The one thing you can be sure of.

22 Apr 2019 20:34:15
Vinny to have a plan B you need the players, which I am sorry to say we have not got.
