The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 15 June)

Post by Ellandback1 » Fri Jun 15, 2018 7:02 am

Good Morning Everyone

At 00.15 this morning, the news that we have all been waiting for finally arrived!

Marcelo Bielsa has agreed to become Leeds Utd next Manager.

He has accepted the ER hotseat, and will be earning 2m per year plus bonuses!

He will fly to England a week today, ready to take charge of training on the players first day back.





At this stage there are more questions than answers:-

i) We assume its a one years contact, in case things go horribly wrong!

ii) We don't know who the backroom staff are going to be, or how long it will take to get their visa's

iii) What becomes of Orta?

iv) How much control will Bielsa have?

v) What will the budget be?

Plenty of questions, very few answers, but one thing for sure, put your seatbelts on folks, its going to be a rocky ride!!!!





Who is Leeds top priority in the transfer window?

Hernandez

Vrdra

Bartley

Gunn

Messi (just kidding?





Pick a Manager

Grayson or McAllister?

and

O'Leary or George Graham?

Good morning Matt

Bielsa is without doubt a massive upgrade on the previous coaches we've employed.
Now he requires the tools to work with to allow him to make Leeds great again.

I do think we could be looking in a different direction for players now so none of those may not end up at ER

Hi EB

There's nothing on the Leeds' site about Bielsa signing
We're going up like there is no gravity!

Good Morning Leon, are you more optimistic about Radrizzani now?

Evening Harry, it should be now.

Bielsa has agreed a 2 year deal with an option for a third.

All done and dusted pal.

All a waiting game, fingers crossed he gets the time and he delivers, anything else is just guess work at the moment.

Great on the face of it, but it kicks up question after question to do with staff and players to sign and ones to go
I just hope the season doesnt start Frank De Boer style with players not being able to play the style he wants and the results going south fast

Oh! Good morning all

Morning Dalton, Bielsa has set out his demands very clearly, hence the negotiations took so long, its going to be a VERY busy fortnight at ER...

Fascinating stuff even if you think it is a bad or strange appointment. Wonder if season ticket sales will be up?

Yes because he is thinking big with this appointment, now Radz needs to back Biesla & allow him to get on with the job

Even Radz will know last season was a total disaster, maybe he has realised you can't run a big club like Leeds United with tinpot appointments & average signings & expect to be successful. The writing was on the wall from day one !

This should be a massive boost for season ticket sales. It's a statement of intent and whatever my personal thought are regarding the likelihood of success, it's the first statement of intent for many many years

I suspect he was horrified if he watched clips of our players last season

Time for the big girl blouses to make way for some powerhouses, hopefully losing 50/50 balls, strolling around the park & players generally stealing their salaries will be a thing of the past
