Bielsa's first season in probably the most demanding league he's managed in.
Poor summer transfer window
Lack of an inspired signing in January.
Dodgy defence.
No 25 a season goalscorer.
Fillers on the bench.
Lack of quality.
Lack of togetherness.
Fatigue.
Naivety.

All conspired against us !
Thank goodness we have Alioski eh?

During Leeds pre season tour in Australia, some Leeds players were expressing their concerns about burnout to Ex White Michael Bridges.

This is what Bridges said in the paper

“The other thing Leeds struggled with last year (as well as the injury to Kemar Roofe)… I was speaking to a few of players, (including) Liam Cooper the captain… they just felt after Christmas they’d almost run out of energy, the way they’d been playing football,” Bridges said.

Quote from Bamford

Patrick Bamford claimed earlier this season that the side are fitter than they were this time last season. However, the way Leeds play is so intense, that burnout is inevitable.

Roofe on Bielsa and he would disagree with Bamford

Roofe pointed to stats proving that Leeds didn't die off as people said, and Bielsa actually increased their workload and 'blew theories out of the water' about fitness, with Roofe learning more about his body than ever before.

“People thought we'd die off but our stats showed we didn't,” said Roofe. “Our training load didn't die off, either. If anything, he upped it through the season. You're told you'll get fatigue and you can only do a certain amount of kilometres during the week before a game, but he blew those theories out of the water.”

“His style was to play quick, attacking, aggressive, front-foot, positive football — perfect for me — and I learned the body can do so much more than you believe,” he added.

I think I would rather have a team that has the mentality of being invincible
rather that listen to Whealan or Mills who tell them they are going to burnout.

Whelan and Mills need to keep up their appearances to remain relevant so they jump on every little bit of hearsay to do so. I'm not saying everything they say is pure fabrication but it doesn't take much tweaking of a few key words to cloud the truth.

I don't treat 'I'm hearing whispers' or 'the word is' as fact and neither should anyone else. I've still seen no credible proven sources for the Nketiah recall talk.
