Leeds United - The El Loco Year(s) (2018 -)

Somehow Leeds managed to get El Loco to come manage this garbage fire of a club. I suppose after the Lille debacle, Bielsa needed a makeover too and agreed to do this.

How will this workout? Will Bielsa change English football at this level for good? Or will he flame out like he has at most of his recent jobs clashing with everyone in sight when things start going wrong. More likely a supernova level garbage fire is in the works.

Or will Bielsa win back to back divisions and lead Leeds to a PL vic.. . Fine it's too ridiculous to even type out.

But IMO it's the most watchable football story in Europe right now, where most of the big leagues are puke now.

PS: Don't move this to the Leeds forum where threads go to die.

They're seriously looking good so far. I think they will be back in the EPL.

His interviews are really something, though.

Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.

Bielsa is not necessarily the guy I'd managing my team (at least these days) but he makes all kinds of teams worth watching. Really a guy that adds something to football.

The interviews were already awkward enough in his native language as he sort of avoids eye contact, then with the translator, and now with the trying to speak just repeating the translator it's just hilarious. Can't fault him in terms of effort.

I will always call him Bie-POLAR. Somehow he walks aways from problems without facing them and or resolving them..And watch out , he only wants young players that can learn how to kiss his culo..He loves that.

If I was a father and my lad was under him, I'd ask my Son to tape all converations with him. Another weird arggie out there loose in the world..

Come on, dude. What about Keane and Dacourt?

Cantona too if you go back.

it's amazing that they got him

I used to be a LUFC fan

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Yeah, I was just going to post about AC's Leeds fandom. And that nutter we had called lafaidabelo or something? I think he changed his name to Est1975.

I thought he's Milan more than any other club though?

Dacourt was pretty good for us for a season then got an ACL injury. Solid signing - Especially as we got him after his contract with Roma ran out so paid no transfer fee.

He'd have walked into any Valencia team. Albelda would have been out on his ass. Baraja too.

Brechet didn't play much at Inter. Honestly I barely remember him. Not a good thing for a player... Cuper getting fired probably didn't help him.

Any Inter fan will tell you that Dacourt was solid for us though.
