Marcelo Bielsa named Head Coach

New head coach confirmed.

Leeds United are delighted to announce the appointment of Argentine Marcelo Bielsa in the role of head coach.

Bielsa has previously enjoyed success as head coach of the Argentina and Chile national teams, as well as at club level with Newell’s Old Boys, Athletic Bilbao and Marseille.

The 62-year-old has won top flight league titles in Argentina with Newell's Old Boys and Vélez Sársfield, whilst also guided Bilbao to the UEFA Europa League final and the Copa del Rey final, during his time in charge of the Spanish club.

On his appointment, Bielsa said: “I am delighted to accept the role of head coach at Leeds United.

“It has always been my ambition to work in England and I have had several opportunities to do so during my career, however I have always felt it was important to wait for the right project to come along and so when a club with Leeds United’s history made me an offer, it was impossible to turn down.

“I am excited for the challenge ahead and I look forward to collaborating with Victor, Andrea and Angus, as we work hard to achieve great things at this football club.”

Chairman Andrea Radrizzani said: “I am thrilled to welcome Marcelo and his staff to Leeds United.

“He is a coach that I have admired for many years and when the opportunity arose to bring him to Elland Road, we made it our top priority for the summer.

“Marcelo has a wealth of experience and he will use that to create a new culture and a winning mentality at our football club.

“I would like to thank Victor Orta and Angus Kinnear for all of the hard work that has gone into this appointment and I look forward to progressing together.”

Bielsa has signed a two year deal at Elland Road with the club holding an option for a further year.

Leeds United have been in talks with Bielsa for a week now about taking over at Elland Road.

The club have been thrashing out a deal while waiting for a work permit for the Argentine to come to the UK.

And Argentine outlet Varsky Sports claim the work permit has been granted.

According to the report, Bielsa “has got the work permit and will soon be announced as the new coach of Leeds.


“He had already agreed his contract with the club that plays in the Championship.”

En analyse:


The Importance of Being Bielsa

In the play The Importance of Being Earnest, Lady Bracknell exclaims “A HANDBAG?” when confronted with conflicting news. Until that point in the play, she had formed one opinion of the character Jack and had just been made aware of another side to his past.

In much the same way I exclaimed “BIELSA?” when it was confirmed we were in serious talks with him.

I’ve interviewed many people for jobs over my life and never found any one person who is exactly right for the role I was searching for: However, after analysing many pros and cons, I’ve selected very suitable candidates who have worked well in their roles.

The rumblings about Leeds United’s search for a manager reminds me of those processes.

Starting Point
I must confess that my starting point with Bielsa comes from the negative side.

I’m not a great follower of players and managers away from Leeds United and rarely remember names. There are certain events I read about that stick in my mind though and Lazio having a manager who had a row and left before he started is one. Another story that caught my eye, due to its financial nature, was the guy who was sacked by Lille and then sued them for 19 million euros, risking Lille going bust.

At the time both events were merely interesting stories and I soon forgot the names.

Then Ranieri was linked with Leeds United and I did a quick Google search to see what he’d done recently. Up pops Lille again. This time it is in relation to the first match of the season between two giants from management, Ranieri verses Bielsa. Nantes verses Lille. In the event, Ranieri lost to Bielsa but he went on to better success as the season continued, whereas Bielsa’s season fell apart until his acrimonious sacking.

Maverick Coach
Having done some research on Ranieri I was in two minds – his age is against him, is he only a short-term coach, did he take over a ready-made team at Leicester etc. – but I’d pushed Bielsa to the back of my mind.

Then Phil Hay said he’d heard another name in the fray, Alan Nixon hinted at a maverick coach from Europe. Who they were referring to I didn’t know but I dismissed Bielsa.

So when it became clear Bielsa was in the running my reaction was to exclaim “BIELSA?”.

Hysteria
What I wasn’t expecting was the frenzied, almost maniacal, acceptance of Bielsa by so many vocal Leeds Fans on Twitter and Facebook. Yes, some dissenting voices but an overwhelming caucus just wanting him signed up and in office.

At one point over the weekend I suggested a dispassionate debate but the overall feeling was “sod it, he could be trouble but he’s exciting, let’s give it a whirl”.

Fortunately, the management at Leeds United is taking a more measured view and are taking their time to look at the pros and cons.

Cons
As I’ve started to hint at earlier, Bielsa comes with a lot of cons.

Salary
Bielsa doesn’t come cheaply! When he was sacked by Lille he sued them for the remainder of his contract to be paid. There was around a year and a half left in his contract and it was valued at £12m.

Yes, that’s an annual salary of £8 million!

Transfers
He also has firm views on player signings and spent, or encouraged Lille to spend, 60 million euros on new players. The resulting financial mess Lille found themselves in got them a transfer embargo last January after his sacking.

Obviously, Lille management was heavily to blame for putting their trust in Bielsa and their money in the transfer market in the belief that “really going for it” would get them into Champions League football and the rewards associated.

However, given that Lille took on Bielsa knowing he’d walked out on Lazio for failing to bring in his transfer targets, this does also perhaps demonstrate the man is “heavy maintenance” in the transfer department.

Director of Football
The revitalisation of Lille, under new owner Lopez, brought Luis Campos to work with Bielsa as director of football. It seems that Bielsa wanted much more control within the club than Campos would allow him and the relationship broke down, well before Bielsa was sacked.

Of course, a failing out between colleagues often happens and Bielsa is not necessarily to blame.

Looking a little further back in time we find that he left Marseille of his own accord but did so because his control over transfers was eroded and he had a reportedly belligerent relationship with club officials.

Sacking
In some ways, it is to his credit that he has walked out of clubs previously rather than being sacked. Only Lille have got to the end of their tether and sacked him.

After this sacking Bielsa sued Lille for his remaining contracted salary and £4m in damages. He claimed he was sacked due to him making an unauthorised visit to see a dying friend. Lille denied that claim and said he was sacked for the poor performances on and off the pitch.

The judge rejected Bielsa’s claim of unfair dismissal, choosing to believe the club. Bielsa lost his claim for £16m and was ordered to pay 300k euros to Lille for bringing such an “unreasonable” case.

Results
Bielsa arrived at Lille to a fanfare of hope and expectation. They are a club that has fallen on lean times in recent years and Bielsa was seen as a new hope of glory.

As mentioned above, the reality was far different. Bielsa started well with a 3 nil defeat of Ranieri’s Nantes but then won only TWO more of his next 12 games.

Pros
Of course Leeds United would not be considering him at all if there were nothing good about him.

Playing Style
Bielsa is famous for playing a controversial 3-3-1-3 formation but does, in fact, vary this to suit the occasion.

There are reports of players being confused by the system but often this comes from players being fielded out of their normal position.

Training
Bielsa is apparently fanatical about training and preparation. This is manifest in high-intensity work in training which he expects his players to continue during matches.

His methods draw praise from players who recognise that they are meticulously prepared for each match both physically and tactically, though some players can suffer burn-out as the season progresses.

Fans
Bielsa demands a fast-moving attacking team with close ball control that is exciting to watch.

Bielsa’s willingness to discuss football at length is welcomed by fans and has gone a long way to creating the cult status he has within the game.

References
There has been much written about the high esteem Bielsa is held in by other successful coaches and I’ll not repeat them here.

Suffice it to say, he’s viewed as an innovator bringing attractive football to fruition that, with the right players, brings success.

Conclusion
I’m not going to come down with a hire or reject conclusion.

The above essay hopefully brings out some of the many pros and cons that the club management team must discuss with Bielsa.

I can’t know what answers he will give, what compromises each side will make, what promises will be given and so forth.

My essay might seem biased against Bielsa but it is not intended to be. When reading up on his recent history it is mainly cons that come to light, whereas you have to go back many more years to find true success on the football pitch, which is what forms his biggest pros.

My conclusion really is that employing a Head Coach is not easy and I’m glad that the club is taking time to do it.

Whatever the outcome, I’ll be supporting the Coach and the Team next season with my normal expectation of some wins, some losses and lots of enjoyment.

Ryan from from Football Whispers writes in about Marcelo Bielsa and his philosophy tactically.

Marcelo Bielsa may not be a household name among casual football fans, but the Argentinian coach, nicknamed El Loco for his idiosyncratic and unorthodox methods, has inspired a degree of fanaticism among a legion of the game’s idealists.

bielsa-2016

A favourite of football hipsters around the world, Bielsa has also spawned a generation of tacticians who have sprinkled his philosophy with a pinch more pragmatism, and used it achieve greater success than the former Athletic Club and Marseille boss was ever able to.

Having pursued a career as a professional footballer, Bielsa turned out for his boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys. But, having mustered only two appearances for the Rosario side, he realised that he would not cut it as a top-level player, and quit the game at 25 to take up a coaching position in Buenos Aires with the city’s university team.

Hailing from an academic background – the majority of his immediate family were either lawyers or politicians – Bielsa sought to apply his intellect to seek alternative solutions to football’s age-old tactical quandaries. “I am a student of football,” he once said. “I watch videos, read, analyse, but beneath all my technical talk the great principle is not to concede too much space.”

The up-start coach got his big break in 1990, when appointed manager of Newell’s after being promoted from his position as coach of the youth team.

“Tactically it was a radical change,” midfielder Juan Manuel Llop said of the new manager’s approach. “He altered the fitness preparation enormously, he worked set-pieces very thoroughly and paid close attention to all the details.

“The style was very practical. It was a very aggressive style, looking for every man to win his personal duel … along with controlling possession and always looking to go forward and attack.”

As self-confessed subscriber to the paradoxical philosophies of legendary Argentinian coaches César Luis Menotti and Carlos Bilardo, Bielsa built his blueprint by blending aspects of the two men’s styles. He took Menotti’s desire for aesthetically pleasing play and added a dash of Bilardo’s rigid organisation.

The style of Bielsa’s Newell’s was thrilling to watch. He demanded unwavering commitment from his players and set up his side with the instruction to harry their opponents into submission; they would press high and press hard.

Pressing was nothing new, the great Dutch side of 1974 were diligent and tireless in their closing-down duties. But Bielsa used pressing as on offensive weapon. By denying the opposition space in their own third of the pitch and systematically cutting off passing lanes, Newell’s would regain possession in areas from which a swift attacking movement would see them in on goal.

Bielsa describes this tenet of his system thusly: “While the opponent has the ball, the whole team presses, always trying to cut off the play as close as possible to the opponent’s goal; when we get it we look to play with dynamism and create spaces for improvisation.”

In this regard, similarities can be seen in the way Jürgen Klopp built his wonderfully successful Borussia Dortmund team, and how his Liverpool side are currently going about their business in the Premier League. Indeed, the gegenpressing mould is one that will be eminently familiar to Bielsa.

It is also a well-known facet of Pep Guardiola’s philosophy that he instructs his players to press aggressively for six seconds immediately after losing possession, before falling back into their defensive structure.

Before Guardiola took his first managerial role with Barcelona, he flew to Argentina to meet and exchange ideas with Bielsa. The older coach’s theories on passing the ball, pressing and positional fluidity clearly rubbed off on the Catalan.

Bielsa, much like the great AC Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi, believed in “occupying the pitch well”, as he once put it. To do this, he posited that the entire XI should move around the pitch as a unit, with no more than 25 metres between the deepest defender and the foremost attacker; each player’s position was dictated by the position of his team mate. This kind of spatial limitation is also a trademark of Guardiola’s sides, who aim to hold an almost abnormally high defensive line.

With what would become his trademark 3-3-1-3 formation, Bielsa led Newell’s to the 1991 Apetura title, but the coach’s rigorous demands took their toll on the side who suffered a slump for the following two campaigns – a tale similar to that of his final months in Bilbao.

After a rethink brought about by some soul searching following a humbling 6-0 defeat to San Lorenzo, Bielsa shuffled his deck, switched some of his key players around positionally, and galvanised his side to win the Clausura title in 1992. To mark his success and influence with the club, Newell’s named their stadium after their former coach in 2009.

The fluid back three system that brought Newell’s their success is not wholly dissimilar to that being used by Antonio Conte at Chelsea, and is getting them great odds on the title at www.bettingoffers.org, or the 3-4-3 or Guardiola’s final season in Barcelona. It was, after all, an adaptable form of 3-4-3 with a diamond midfield; “the scheme always depended on the characteristics of our opponents,” Bielsa explained.

Another innovation of the Argentinian tactician was to set homework for his players, encouraging them to study tape of upcoming opponents, find solutions and present their findings back to the team. This was seen as a way to foster a degree of independent problem solving from his players, engaging them mentally as well as physically.

Of his former charges, Gerardo “Tata” Martino would go on to have success managerially when in charge of Newell’s and the Paraguayan national team. He has also recently spent time at the helm of Barcelona and Argentina.

The most prominent coach spawned by Bielsa’s La Lepras, however, is Tottenham Hotspurs’ Mauricio Pochettino.

Pochettino was a central defender at Newell’s and also played under Bielsa for Argentina. The former Espanyol and Southampton coach espouses many of the philosophical principles he would have learned under his former boss, though perhaps in a slightly more conventional, pragmatic manner. Nevertheless, the high-pressing, the physical demands of his players and the systematic tenacity are all hallmarks of a fully paid-up Bielsista.

Atlético Madrid manager Diego Simeone also worked under Bielsa for Argentina. Although El Cholo’s Atléti often lack the sense of adventure prominent Bielsa teams, work ethic and organisation are traits that have rubbed off on the former Internazionale and Lazio player.

In the more recent part of his career, Bielsa bent his system slightly to conform to the demands of the modern game. At Athletic and Marseille, a version of 4-2-3-1 was much more commonly used than anything akin to the 3-3-1-3 of Newell’s, or any of the back three-based formations he used with Argentina.

But while in charge of Chile from 2007-2011, Bielsa’s trademark system produced a thrillingly cavalier side which brought the best out of key players such as Arturo Vidal, Mauricio Isla and Alexis Sanchez.

His successor in the role as Chile coach, Jorge Sampaoli, was an avid disciple of Bielsa and used many of his ideas to win two domestic titles and a Copa Sudamericana with Universidad de Chile, before guiding La Roja to their first ever Copa América in 2015. He is currently flying high in Spain with Sevilla, using a Bielsa-esque, high-energy 3-4-3.

Though Bielsa’s trophy haul is modest – just three Argentinian titles in total and an Olympic gold medal with Argentina in 2004 – the influence he has had on the modern game is undeniable.

Bielsa described his philosophy as being composed of four basic tenets: focus, mobility, rotation and repenitización — a musical term meaning something akin to improvisation – all of which have formed the basis of seemingly any aspiring coach to have come into contact with him.

Though winning was always the aim, style was of almost equal importance. With a nod to pragmatism and a commitment to aesthetics, Bielsa inspired a unique following within the football world; the method behind El Loco’s madness proved beguiling.

A Marcelo Bielsa pre-season and how he creates a band of brothers

Leeds are hoping to confirm the appointment of the Argentine in the coming days
BY JOE MEWIS

Bielsa leaves no stone unturned
Leeds United are reportedly nearing a deal with Marcelo Bielsa which will the Argentinian become the clubs new manager.

The widely-respected 62-year-old would replace Paul Heckingbottom in the Elland Road dugout, after the former Barnsley boss was relived off his duties on June 1.


With the likes of Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino both hailing the former Argentina and Chile boss as huge influences on their respective careers, the appointment would be a huge statement of intent from the Championship side, who have also drawn up an ambitious list of transfer targets.

Leeds United will likely step up these transfers negotiations once the new manager is on board, but should Bielsa indeed get the nod then there will be big changes at the club.


Bielsa is legendary for his meticulous preparation and the Leeds United squad will undergo a very different pre-season under the Argentine.

We've had a look back at how Bielsa has previously approached his pre-season campaigns to see what Leeds could be in store for later this month.

An early return
GettyImages-823238852.jpg
Bielsa reportedly wants his side back a week early
Leeds United's pre-season was scheduled to begin on Monday, June 25 with the playing squad returning to Thorp Arch for 'three weeks of intense training', according to the club's official website. And that was before the Bielsa speculation began.

But reports suggest that should Bielsa land the job then he will expect his players back this Monday - a week earlier than scheduled in order to get going early under the new manager, with a steep learning curve awaiting the Leeds squad.


"The first two days were tests and after that it was hardcore," said Lille winger Anwar El Ghazi told the BBC about Bielsa's time at at the French side. "We trained at 10am and second training was 6:30pm."

The 62-year-old demands extremely high levels of fitness from his players, so the extra week could be vital.

No going home
During his tenure at Lille, Bielsa demanded that the club built 20 stripped-down, back-to-basics bungalows at their Domaine de Luchin training complex for the players to stay in.

"We eat here, we sleep here and we do everything here," El Ghazi continued.

"They're small bungalows, just a bedroom, air conditioning and electricity, that's all. If you want to take a shower you go to the changing room and we have a room with Playstation and table tennis.

"The coach said we had to be a family together and when you're eating together, sleeping next door to each other, you become a family. We are like brothers now."

Given the infrastructure at Thorp Arch, where every piece of spare land has been sold off to housing developers over the past decade and the club's desire to leave in the future, this is not a realistic proposition this summer, but who knows what his plans for next summer are?


Intense video study
The tales of Bielsa's fondness for video analysis are part of the Argentine's folklore.

One Christmas he was asked how he would spend the break, answering that he would do two hours of exercise and then spend 14 hours watching videos. He can apparently watch two games at a time, so that's a lot of information.

GettyImages-465671948.jpg
Bielsa puts in countless hours of preparation
And he expects his players to also go the extra yard, so the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Kemar Roofe and Liam Cooper will have to set aside plenty of time to spend in front of the telly, where the conclusion to this year's Love Island will have to wait.

Manchester City's Benjamin Mendy played under Bielsa at Marseille and gave an insight in Bielsa's demands of him - and some of the mind games he plays in order to get the most out of his squad.

"He made me devour videos like never before," the left-back told Onze Mondial.

"To begin with he put me in front of the videos and I'd fall asleep. But he was happy! I was shocked.

GettyImages-950007256.jpg
Benjamin Mendy says Bielsa is 'too good'
"After a while I stopped sleeping and told myself 'go on, I'll watch two minutes of this thing after all.'

"After that he talked to me, I talked to him and we'd go over moves together. He told me, 'see, that's why I let you sleep. You slept, you slept, you slept but the day you decided to watch you got interested on your own. If I'd pushed you to watch you wouldn't have been interested'... Marcelo is just too good."

The under-23s won't be ignored
Bielsa was appointed by Lille shortly after the 2016-17 season finished and called a special post-season training for the club's younger players, watching the action with his notebook and pen.

GettyImages-467283692.jpg
The youngsters will not be ignored at Thorp Arch
From the moment his appointment was confirmed the French side's various youth teams all switched to a back-three to ready themselves for the tactical switch was about to be introduced.

Bielsa will want his side up for pre-season friendlies
Forest Green's The New Lawn will be the venue for Bielsa's first game, should he land the job. A far cry from some of the stadiums in which the veteran has previously managed, but if you go by Lille's pre-season results from last season, the team should be up for the challenge.


French side Reims and Rennes plus Italian outfit Atalanta were some of Lille's opponents, with Bielsa's side winning three, drawing one and losing one of their five pre-season friendlies.

Bielsa set up his side in either a 3-3-3-1 or 4-2-3-1, with one style of play dominating all five matches: pressing. Get ready to hear that word a lot.

Bielsa's dealings with the media

Before this busy summer gets underway Bielsa will meet the media for the first-time.

As in France, it is likely he will need a translator, at least in these first few months. But the challenge facing him at Lille, where he took over at an under-performing mid-table side, does offer some similarities with the job at Leeds.

Amazing appointment by #lufc  Hope it works out. Bielsa was a visionary at his peak. Meticulous preparation, teams with relentless work-rate and attacking. If the old magic is there, and the players respond, Leeds could be box office.

EN DOKTRINE ER DET VI FÃ…R:


The cult of Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds United - a romantic match made in heaven?

“Paris is worth a mass.” It was those apocryphal words, used on Monday by somebody close to Marcelo Bielsa, which erased all doubt about Bielsa’s intentions. For Paris, read Leeds United; different empires, different men but the same romantic appeal.

Updated: 09:37 Friday 15 June 2018
Published: 07:57

The quote harks back to the 1500s and the reign of Henry IV of France, who converted to Catholicism in the hope of ending a bloody, religious civil war. Conversion, he supposedly said, was a small price to pay if it allowed him to govern the country and run it as he pleased. Paris is worth a mass.

Marcelo Bielsa.
Marcelo Bielsa.
Bielsa, from the point of his first conversation with Leeds, knew what he wanted and expressed himself frankly. Conversations about contracts and work permits were torturously painstaking and often aloof but on training methods, recruitment and his own levels of authority, Bielsa made ears burn. He knew in advance about the set-up at Thorp Arch and had analysed the club’s squad minutely. He watched every one of this season’s games and other key matches involving rival clubs in the Championship. It will go like this, Bielsa said, as football dominated finance.

Leeds were coming for him, not the other way round, and his reputation, his value and his aura gave him all the cards to play. As discussions and paperwork went back and forward, Bielsa kept himself in South America and embarked on a series of lectures at football conferences in Mexico and Uruguay. There was no rush to leap into United’s arms but all the while he was privately open to compromise and minded to do what was necessary to make the job at Elland Road his. Paris is worth a mass.

Bielsa accepts offer to become Leeds United head coach

It surprised Leeds to find him so receptive when contact was first made. The initial conversation took place before the club dismissed Paul Heckingbottom on June 1 and left Heckingbottom hanging by a thread. His position as head coach was already precarious but Bielsa’s willingness to talk and talk at length was another nail in the incumbent’s coffin; proof that another way could be found and that Heckingbottom’s quintessential Championship management could be replaced with a more flamboyant, sexy blueprint; a coach depicted as the godfather of modern, intellectual football.

Victor Orta, Leeds’ director of football, knew Bielsa of old and did the early spadework to establish a meeting with Andrea Radrizzani, the first leg of an exhausting relay in which paperwork and phone calls bounced back and forward. Angus Kinnear, the club’s managing director, travelled with Orta to Argentina late last month and, after four days of discussions, established that Bielsa’s demands were financially viable. He will earn between £2m and £3m, nothing like the £8m-a-year he was paid by Lille in his last job, but Leeds in all their 99 years have never committed to a higher wage for a head coach.

So what drew Bielsa to England and murderball in the Championship? A 62-year-old who speaks no English and has lived his long managerial life in more salubrious environments than the EFL? For the past few weeks those involved in the process of hiring him, on both sides, have spoken of one thing: romanticism. This, in a sense, is a veteran coach returning to his roots; retreating from Lille, Marseille, Athletic Bilbao and the bright lights of international football to rediscover his first love, Newell’s Old Boys.

Bielsa walks on water at Newell’s, the club in Rosario, Argentina where he was born and where he began coaching in earnest in the 1990s. His siblings are politicians and architects but football caught his imagination and he fashioned a short playing career at Newell’s. As manager, Bielsa took them in hand, delivered trophies and gave the club a lease of life. The job inspired his ferocious work ethic and tactical mind, bringing about the birth of 3-3-1-3 and engendering the innovative, daring ideas which coaches would flock to emulate. “It’s impossible for me to love another shirt more than that of Newell’s,” Bielsa once said. In 2009 the club reciprocated by naming their stadium after him.

Leeds, 7,000 miles away, pull at the same string: a proud but downtrodden club who have wasted years looking for enlightenment. They will not name Elland Road after Bielsa but there is infinite esteem to be found here for whoever drags Leeds off the Championship roundabout. The club appealed and England appealed and there was never any disagreement about money. Bielsa only wanted to satisfy his fanaticism for employing his principles of coaching and to make sure that Leeds would give him the freedom.

David Prutton: Bielsa’s an exciting choice for head coach at Leeds United

This appointment will still cost the club, as the appointment of Bielsa has cost other clubs in the past. It became apparent to Leeds that Bielsa was seriously interested when the demands about players and methods of working began coming their way. He wanted an earlier start date for pre-season, giving him time to drum his philosophy into their squad, and asked for modifications at Thorp Arch. Bielsa has done this before. At Lille he persuaded the club to build 20 apartments at their training ground to allow players to work there, recover there and sleep there. “Hardcore,” was how winger Anwar El Ghazi described Lille’s pre-season. Even before Bielsa’s appointment was finalised, United’s squad were told to prepare themselves for three weeks of double sessions. They can expect to spend the next month living in each other’s pockets and to find Bielsa fully versed in the mess which this season became.

Lille, though, is a cautionary tale for anyone assuming that Bielsa is a golden ticket to the Premier League. The most unique appointment Leeds have ever made is laced with risk, embracing a maverick and volatile man who has burned out spectacularly in the past. Bielsa, who quit Lazio in 2016 after two days in charge having accused the club of failing to keep up their end of the bargain on transfers, was the pick of new Lille owner Gerard Lopez last summer, at a cost of £8m a year. Lille threw more than £50m at their squad and invested in infrastructure at Bielsa’s request but were strangely lifeless under Bielsa. Results turned against him quickly and devotion to his philosophy allowed no room for pragmatism. As one journalist put it: “There was no prospect of their coach altering his principles just to have square pegs fit in square holes.”

Bielsa was suspended in November and later sacked after flying to Chile to visit an ill friend in hospital. Lille classed it an unauthorised trip away. The Argentinian took action against the club and claimed an eye-watering sum in compensation, well in excess of £10m after six months in charge. That legal case is ongoing and according to reports in France he lost the last round of it in March.

Volatility and an unpredictable streak come as part of the package. He has nurtured certain players, upset others and seen squads wilt over time from the high-octane demands of his football. He rarely sticks in one place for long. In 2015 he resigned from Marseille without any warning, one game into the new season. “I’ve finished my work here,” he told a room of incredulous journalists. “I will return to my country.” An interpreter was then told to read out sections of his resignation letter, received by Marseille’s hierarchy minutes earlier. ‘El Loco’, the crazy one, lived up to his nickname. Leeds cannot say there weren’t warned.

But there is brilliance in Bielsa’s methods, an imagination which showed itself in his two years with Athletic Bilbao and their run to the Europa League final. Manchester United were picked off in the process, made to look pedestrian as Bilbao raised their flag over Old Trafford in 2012. Though largely undecorated, he spawned what Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino called “a generation of coaches who were his disciples”, the most prominent being Pep Guardiola; coaches who believed in Bielsa’s free, attacking football, his devotion to style and, most importantly, his own mind. He might open doors to players at Tottenham and Manchester City, and potentially Arsenal where he has separate connections, as his devotees welcome him into the English game and make him at home. He will find some of his disciples here. Leeds are not investing in a coach. They are investing in a doctrine and a culture; the cult of Marcelo Bielsa.

MARCELO BIELSA: THE FACTS BEHIND THE MAN

MARCELO BIELSA: THE FACTS BEHIND THE MAN
1. On the 21st July 1955, Marcelo Alberto Bielsa Caldera was born in Rosario, Argentina. At the time, Raich Carter’s Leeds United had just finished 4th in Division Two with new £600 signing Harold Brooks named top scorer for the season with 16 goals.

2. Coming through as a defender at his childhood club Newell’s Old Boys, Marcelo made the step up to the first team which boasted future Argentine World Cup winners, Américo Gallego and Ricardo Giusti. He played 25 times over the course of the 1977/78 season, before going on to feature for Instituto and Argentino.



3. In 1990, Marcelo replaced José Yudica as first team coach of Newell’s Old Boys. Making an instant impact with a side including Mauricio Pochettino, Gerardo Martino, and Eduardo Berizzo, he led the club to two league championships in two years, whilst also guiding Newell’s to the 1992 Copa Libertadores Final, where they narrowly missed out on penalties.

4. Marcelo’s success at Newell’s led the Argentinian club to rename the ‘El Coloso del Parque’ to the ‘Estadio Marcelo Bielsa’ in 2009. Club secretary Pablo Morosano remarked “This is a gesture towards a person who did a lot for the club and today carries its name with pride around the world”



5. After winning a third championship in Argentina with Valez Sarsfield, and managerial stints in Mexico and Spain, Marcelo was named Argentina’s national manager in 1998.

6. Bringing together a team featuring Gabriel Batistuta, Diego Simeone, Juan Veron, Javier Zanetti, and Hernan Crespo, Bielsa’s Argentina sailed through qualification for the 2002 World Cup, with 13 wins and one loss. The side’s dominance across South America led to Marcelo being named the 2001 IFFHS World's Best National Coach.



7. 2004 saw Marcelo lead Argentina to a Copa America Final against Brazil, before The Albicelestes won their first ever Olympic Gold a month later, with Carlos Tevez’s 18th minute strike securing a 1-0 win over Paraguay in Athens.

8. August 2007 saw Marcelo take up his second national post, as he set about transforming the Chile national team. Historic wins against Argentina, Paraguay, and Peru, were followed by Bielsa’s Chile qualifying for the 2010 World Cup after missing the previous two tournaments.



9. The 2010 World Cup in South Africa saw Marcelo cement his legacy in Chile, as he led La Rojas featuring Claudio Bravo, Arturo Vidal, and Alexis Sanchez to the knockout stages before being stopped by Brazil.

10. Following up his successful spell with Chile, Marcelo set about becoming a hit in Spain, as he took over from Joaquín Caparrós as Athletic Bilbao coach. His first season at the club saw the club reach the 2011/12 Europa League Final, beating Paris St Germain, Manchester United and Sporting CP en-route.



11. In addition to reaching the Europa League Final, Marcelo also navigated his Athletic Bilbao side to the Copa Del Rey Final, where they faced Barcelona in front of over 54,000 at the Vicente Calderon.

12. After a second season at Bilbao, Marcelo took his popular brand of football to Ligue 1 after being appointed Head Coach of Olympique de Marseille, where he’d develop a team around the likes of Imbula, Mendy, Lemina, Ayew, Batshuayi, Payet, and Gignac, leading them to a 4th place finish.



13. Following a short stint at Ligue 1 side Lille OSC, Marcelo Bielsa today became Leeds United’s first manager born outside of Europe.

Eller så liker han å jobbe med potensialet i spillere.. Nå har jeg ikke lest meg opp på hva han har gjort før på den fronten, men tenker at filosofien hans også kan fungere på eksisterende spillere. Om han er så god som det sies, så bør han klare å få ut mer av dagens stall, med litt justeringer såklart.

Min favoritt trener gjennom tidene har tatt over mitt kjære Leeds United. Om det er et ekteskap laget for å gå til himmels eller om det er det motsatte er selv jeg usikker på, men en ting er sikkert, dette er den største mannen som noensinne har trent Leeds United.

Han spiller akkurat enn sånn type fotball jeg elsker. Høyt press og knallhard jobbing. Det var jo sånn jeg mener det var under O`leary i den første tiden når Leeds ble et lag som kjempet om tittelen i Premier League hver sesong. Om han kan klare å få igang dette maskineriet så går det til himmels.

Om spillerne derimot ikke forstår budskapet hans og ikke klarer å gjennomføre hans type fotball kan det fort gå motsatte veien.
Er ikke sikker på at dagens mannskap kan klare det. Noen untak har vi som jeg er sikker på kommer til å nyte godt av Bielsa. En som kommer til å skinne neste år pga Bielsa er Alioski. Alioski og Bielsa tror jeg passer vanvittig godt sammen. Det sammen tror jeg om Ronaldo Vieira. Han også kommer til å skinne neste sesong. Det samme tror jeg om Ekuban. Og så har vi noen bankers som Ayling(men han hadde vært god uansett kem som kom inn).

Når det gjelder de andre spillerne vet jeg ikke om de har det som skal til for å spille under Bielsa. Føler at her er det mange som må motbevise meg. Det blir ekstremt spennende.

Tror at vi må signere 6-7 førstelags spillere som går rett inn å forsterker laget. Dette må være Bielsa spillere som tåler hans type fotball. Ekstremt viktig blir denne sommeren. Nå har vi fått mannen på plass, nå MÃ… vi få resten på plass!

Who is Marcelo Bielsa?

Pitch perfect

Bielsa is known to check pitch measurements before matches. He waits upon deciding on a particular formation until he paces out the pitch. Bielsa's unorthodox approach also stretches to almost obsessive use of videos - editing and analysing for each player - and allocating separate training times for different parts of his squad, with the defenders, midfielders and strikers working alone.

Pep talk

Bielsa has no shortage of football disciples but perhaps his greatest supporter is Pep Guardiola. The Manchester City manager travelled to Argentina for a meeting with Bielsa in 2006 prior to taking charge of Barcelona. "My admiration for Bielsa is immense," Guardiola reportedly said. "I have never met a player who has worked with Bielsa and has spoken badly of him. For me he is the best coach in the world."

Trademark tactics

If Bielsa follows his principles expect Leeds to line up in his trademark 3-3-1-3 formation. It is a system which has flummoxed many an opponent and is based on aggressive pressing of the ball and intelligent positioning both in defence and attack. Bielsa also likes to employ a 4-2-3-1 system and demands a huge work rate, which can sometimes put him at odds with his players.

Det kommer helt sikkert noen enormt spennende signeringer. Mascherano? Vant OL-gull under Bielsa :D

Men, det viktigste, som Guardiola påpeker, er at han gjør spillere bedre. Han gjør gull ut av gråstein, og gråstein har jo vi mye av. Kan O`Kane plutselig bli en stjerne? Phillips blir det uansett. Blir Vieira en av 3 midtstoppere? Bielsa er ikkje så opptatt av at dei som spiller bak er høye, kanskje Jansson passer dårlig inn i spillemåten? Herre min gud, dette skal bli gøy. Eg kunne stilt 1000 spørsmål til.

Marcelo Bielsa: Tactics and philosophy of a cult manager

Leeds hope Bielsa is the man to revive their glory days
Leeds hope Bielsa is the man to revive their glory days

Written by Jed Davies — June 15, 2018

JED DAVIES spent three and a half years researching the philosophy and ideas of Marcelo Bielsa for his book The Philosophy of Football.

Davies, who runs the Futuro Soccer Academy in Ottawa, has been fascinated by the Argentine coach for many years. He shared his findings about the new Leeds United manager with TGG.

1. THE MAN

“A man with new ideas is mad until he succeeds” - Marcelo Bielsa

Marcelo Bielsa is a cult figure who attracts not just admirers, but disciples.

Mauricio Pochettino, Gerardo Martino, Jorge Sampaoli, Eduardo Berizzo, Pep Guardiola and Roberto Martinez are among the top coaches who call themselves ‘Bielsistas’.

The 62-year-old manager hails from Rosario, Argentina - the same home city as Lionel Messi, Cesar Luis Menotti, Che Guevara and Jorge Sampaoli - and has left long-term legacies in his homeland, the corridor country of Chile and much further afield.

As a mark of gratitude for his achievements, Newell's Old Boys - whom Bielsa led to two Argentine titles and (remarkably) the final of the Copa Libertadores in 1992 - renamed their stadium the ‘Estadio Marcelo Bielsa’ in December 2009.

When you consider the fact that this renowned coach is yet to win much in his long career - other than those titles at Newell's and the 2004 Olympic title with Argentina - this fervour may seem strange. But Guardiola, who sought Bielsa’s counsel before taking the Barcelona job in 2008, dismissed this theory last year.

“It doesn't matter how many titles he had in his career," the Spaniard said. "We are judged by that – by how much success we have, how many titles we have won.

"But that is much less influential than how he has influenced football and his football players. That is why, for me, he is the best coach in the world.”

If I were to use three words to describe Bielsa, who is often referred to as El Loco (The Madman), they would be bold, daring and revolutionary.

While working in his native country, the Newell's coach used to hire local youth footballers to climb the fences or trees adjoining rival training grounds to spy on the opposition and report back on their potential starting XIs ahead of matches.

In 2014, Marseille fans photographed him sitting in his club tracksuit in a local McDonald’s poring over videos on a laptop after a win over Toulouse. As usual, the Argentine was completely consumed by his work and seemed unaware of the commotion going on around him. He also famously quit as manager of Lazio in July 2016 without even taking a game, due to what he perceived as the broken promises of the club’s board.

Lazio's directors had assured him that his shortlist of transfer targets was being chased up, only for El Loco to carry out his own research and discover that players and agents had not been contacted after all. There are too many other examples of Bielsa's intense, fanatical personality to list here. Instead, this piece will explore some of his key tactical beliefs.

2. ROTATION

“I always tell my guys that our playing style is about movement” - Marcelo Bielsa.

Former England Under-16 coach Dan Micciche remembers watching Bielsa’s Athletic Bilbao beat Manchester United 3-2 at Old Trafford in 2012 to knock them out of the Europa League. Micciche was in turn intrigued and enthralled.

“It was the first time I'd ever watched a team and been unable to tell who was playing in which position,” he told me.

This will be one of the early challenges for Leeds’ players, as they are unlikely to have encountered anything like this before. Players in Bielsa’s teams rotate and move freely, defying the traditional use of conventional positions.

Fans who attended Bilbao’s 3-3 draw against Pochettino’s Espanyol on September 16th 2012 witnessed Inigo Perez (a natural central midfielder) defending in the left full-back slot in his own half when the team were out of possession. However, when Bilbao had the ball, Perez played as a central holding midfielder behind the more attack-minded Oscar de Marcos.

At Marseilles, Dimitri Payet, who had always been a traditional wide midfielder, played as a ‘central winger’, drifting wide and linking play with the wingers and wing-backs. André-Pierre Gignac played as a wide centre forward and drifted into wide positions to link and build play down the flanks.


Gignac later said of Bielsa: “He taught us a vibrant, real type of football. He knows even the smallest detail.”

Bielsa has said “movement, rotation, concentration and improvisation” are the four cornerstones of his footballing philosophy. And if he has one core philosophy, it is movement - in order to create opportunities for penetration.

Guardiola has used full-backs in the ‘half spaces’ to devastating effect during his time at Bayern Munich and Manchester City - as TGG explored in this piece. This move was borrowed from the pages of Bielsa’s tactical playbook.

There are two key purposes for Bielsa's rotations:

To increase the likelihood of playing forward between the lines or isolating a beneficial 1 v 1
To enable counter-pressing by placing numbers in key areas and shortening the distance of passes
<i>How a holding midfielder pulling out to the side of central defenders adds a player between lines. The ball moves from LCB to RCB. The CDM then pulls out to dictate a forward pass. The LB/ LW rotate to get into position to take advantage of this situation. This rotation adds to the numbers ahead of the ball between the lines and gets a playmaker on the ball to find the key pass.&nbsp;</i>

The LB/ LW rotate to get into position to take advantage of this situation. This rotation adds to the numbers ahead of the ball between the lines and gets a playmaker on the ball to find the key pass.

3. MIDFIELDERS MOVING BACK

In order to achieve the playing style and philosophy outlined above, Bielsa started doing something simple, yet counter-intuitive: using midfielders in the defensive line.

For Chile, Gary Medel, who had played as a midfielder for most of his career and gained the nickname ‘Pitbull’, moved back into the centre of defence.

Celtic assistant Chris Davies explained: “A player like Gary Medel sees the 2 v 1 when playing out from the back in a way that the more natural central defenders don’t. That for me is why Bielsa saw value in playing him deeper in the build-up play as a central defender instead of in his more natural position in centre midfield.”


This move was key as Chile becoming one of the teams of the tournament at the 2014 World Cup, beating defending champions Spain in the group stages, before being eliminated by Brazil on penalties in the last 16.

Former Leeds assistant Pep Clotet, another 'Bielsista', said: “Marcelo Bielsa tended to play the attacking players in deeper positions because a player with attacking mentality gives you consistency in the attack and improves the output of the ball.”

Perhaps the finest example of this of all is Javi Martinez, who had played as a goalscoring midfielder before Bielsa took over at Bilbao. The Argentine turned him into a magnificent central defender who inspired the Spanish side to the final of the Copa del Rey and Europa League in 2009. In fact he was so good that Bayern Munich paid his €40m buy-out clause in 2012.

This principle of moving ball players back helped Bielsa to achieve his objective of verticality (forward passes to break the lines) and high-octane pressing football, which we could in fact dedicate entire sections to.

4. STRUCTURE ALLIED WITH FREEDOM

Bielsa once said: “If football was played by robots, I’d win everything.” This is misleading though, because he also allows players the freedom in which to express themselves.

Yes, he breaks down the technical and tactical components and theorises them (“there are 36 forms of communicating through a pass") but within that there is a flexibility.

"Totally mechanised teams are useless, because they get lost when they lose their script,” he has said.
“I also don’t like ones that only rely on the inspiration of their soloists, because when God doesn’t turn them on, they are left totally at the mercy of their opponents.”

So there's a balance. At each team the Argentine has coached, the artistic soul of the team is felt within the context of insane hard work and courage.

For example, Payet was given the artistic freedom to find his place within the structured 4-2-3-1 and 3-3-1-3 organisations at Marseille. The forward, who had been an also-ran before, suddenly forced his way into the French national team.

It is also worth noting the number of Bielsa’s former players who have made their own move into management: Pochettino, Eduardo Berizzo, Dario Franco and Juan Manuel Llop played under him at Newell’s Old Boys alone. This suggests that Bielsa sparks a lifelong curiosity about football in his players.

5. AFFINITY WITH THE FANS

If you take the long-riddled road from Buenos Aires to Rosario (four hours by bus), then you will see the football landscape change. For 'Rosarinos', football takes on an ideological, philosophical and romantic form that you won't see in the capital; one in which players are seen as interpreters of the fans’ fear, joy and sorrow.

Did Bielsa create or continue this philosophy? That's a moot point and the answer is probably somewhere in between. However, this is something he has taken with him throughout his managerial career.

In 2012, Athletic Club Bilbao lost two cup finals, just sixteen days apart: a 3-0 loss in the Europa League to Atlético Madrid followed by a 3-0 loss to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey.

After that second crushing defeat, Bielsa overheard a conversation between his players. Their laughter shocked him.

The following day, he spoke mournfully to his team, highlighting the disconnect between modern-day players and the fans they represent.

“We couldn't match the expectation we created,” he said. “It's a scar, a wound. I heard conversations, people laughing yesterday.

“I think it's unforgivable, lads, to get people's hopes up and let them down, not being able to match the expectations you create. Because I'm truly ashamed to have let down the Athletic Bilbao fans.

“Don't lose sight of that fact, lads: we let them down. You can’t let people down, especially loyal people, so loyal that you can be losing 3-0 with an open wound and give them the smallest thing to cheer about and they applaud you in the 80th minute.

"They are extraordinary fans, boys, so extraordinary. And you are an extension of those people. You are those people.
"You are the same type of people we’re talking about. Extraordinary people. But regrettably lads, we weren’t up to the task.”

During his time at Marseille, The Stade Velodrome was often decorated with banners, flags and tifos (murals) directed towards Bielsa, highlighting the way in which The Madman had captured their imagination.

“Loco, haznos soñar”: Madman, make us dream.

I wouldn’t like to make any predictions about Bielsa’s tenure at Leeds United. It may be brief, as it was at Lille and especially at Lazio.

But I will say one thing, with some confidence: Bielsa will attempt to create a vision for the club’s future. And, who knows, he may take Leeds United to places they wouldn’t have otherwise reached.

Det kommer helt sikkert noen enormt spennende signeringer. Mascherano? Vant OL-gull under Bielsa :D

Men, det viktigste, som Guardiola påpeker, er at han gjør spillere bedre. Han gjør gull ut av gråstein, og gråstein har jo vi mye av. Kan O`Kane plutselig bli en stjerne? Phillips blir det uansett. Blir Vieira en av 3 midtstoppere? Bielsa er ikkje så opptatt av at dei som spiller bak er høye, kanskje Jansson passer dårlig inn i spillemåten? Herre min gud, dette skal bli gøy. Eg kunne stilt 1000 spørsmål til.

Vi skal være fornøyd om han klarer å lage gråstein av O’Kane.

Bytter mer enn gjerne ut PH mot Bielsa. Gledelig og overraskende. Jeg trodde ikke Leeds hadde penger (lov) til å satse denne sommeren. Nå kommer det trolig noen Bielsa-favoritter rett etter 01.07, for dette må jo følges opp med kvalitet spillere.

Jeg er spent på hvordan han fikser ch.ship.
Vi kan ikke forlange mer enn dette så langt i sommer. Ny giv i klubben og en skuffende PH-periode er nå glemt.

Det er snakk om en warchest på 20 mill pund. 10 av disse får de vel inn fra investoren fra USA. Bielsa har en høy lønn, men i året er det jo "kun" 3,5 mill pund. Så det er ikke så veldig store summer som nå brukes. Men selvsagt mye mer enn hva vi er vant til. Også når man tar i betraktning at lønnsbudsjettet skal økes.

Marcelo Bielsa interviewed for the West Ham job before it was given to Bilic. Bielsa told the board he would keep just eight players and that the rest were not good enough. He also said that with the budget offered they’d do no better than under Big Sam. It didn’t go down well.

Jeg håper virkelig at dette også medfører at Bielsa setter krav til at vi gjør noen spiller kjøp som det lukter svidd av. Han har jo tidligere sagt opp trenerjobben etter 2 dager pga av manglende spiller kjøp!
Hva tror dere, har han stilt krav om spiller kjøp?

GUILLEM BALAGUÉ ON MARCELO BIELSA

Highly respected Spanish journalist Guillem Balagué has thrown his support behind Leeds United’s appointment of Marcelo Bielsa.

On Friday it was confirmed Bielsa had agreed to become new head coach at Elland Road, replacing Paul Heckingbottom.

Bielsa has signed an initial two-year deal with the Whites and the club has the option to extend this by a further year.

On the former Argentina manager’s appointment, Balagué said: “Life is better lived with a bit of a gamble.

“Bringing Bielsa to England not only confirms this part of the world in terms of elite coaching (what a priviledge fro young coaches) but also makes me think that finally decision makers feel brave, take choices based on risk, intelligence and long term vision.

“Bravo for Leeds.

“Nobody can guarantee victories or promotion but football, a games after all, is better when the journey to victories is entertaining, challenging and makes you think.

“Also if people are patient, you are going to enjoy Leeds playing in a way you have not seen before.

“Keep a seat at Elland Road for me.”

Marcelo Bielsa: Leeds United's new boss a complete 'one off'
By Tim Vickery
BBC Sport
 
Marcelo Bielsa looks on from the sidelines as Argentina take on Sweden in the 2002 World Cup
I well recall my first face-to-face experience with new Leeds United coach Marcelo Bielsa.
It was the 1999 Copa America and he was in charge of Argentina. His team had just been beaten 3-0 by Colombia, his centre forward Martin Palermo had missed three penalties and Bielsa had been sent off.
In the press conference he sat staring into space, refusing to make eye contact with anyone - his usual stance. He was asked what he had made of the referee's performance.
If the question was predictable, the answer was anything but.

"One doesn't usually have the habit of commenting on referees, but…" he said, leaving everyone to believe he would continue with a rant about a joker running amok with a whistle. Instead he proceeded with, "but in respect of my expulsion, the referee was absolutely correct because I protested in an ill mannered form."
It was a wonderful welcome to the gloriously eccentric world of Marcelo Bielsa, a complete one off who has spent his career dancing to his own drum.

From a family of illustrious lawyers in the city of Rosario, Bielsa instead followed his love for football and, when he realised he would not be a world class centre back, he switched his ambitions to coaching.
So revered is Bielsa at his local club, Newell's Old Boys, that the stadium is named after him. He is also revered in Chile. He was no longer in charge when the Chilean national team finally got their hands on some silverware, winning the Copa America in 2015 and 2016. But he had built the team, enthused the players with his spirit and then resigned and handed them over to his successors.

A Chile fan shows his appreciation to national coach Bielsa during a Copa America semi-final against Peru
When he took the Argentina job, at the end of his first training session Bielsa handed the players a pencil and a little slip of paper. He wanted them to write down whether they wanted to line up with a back three or a four. He went through all the replies.

"Back four, back four, back four... This clearly shows your preference for a line of four. But I'm telling you that from now on we're going to be playing with a back three. See you tomorrow," he said as he turned and walked off. And he won them over, bringing them round to his way of thinking.
Very few of his former players ever speak badly about him. If they show him they are prepared to run, then he showers them with support - and he usually lets the players elect their own captain on the grounds that he should be a representative of the dressing room rather than the coaching staff.

This is typical Bielsa. His esteem and importance, which has earned him admiration and glowing praise from Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino, comes far more from the influence he has exerted than for the trophies he has won.

That influence comes from the determination to do things his way.
Bielsa is the high priest of the high press. One of the his principal concepts is that in a team that wants to attack - and his teams always want to attack - the conventional full-back is a waste of a player.
He wants his width higher up the field. He wants both full-backs pushing up, linking with the wingers to create two-against-one situations down the flanks and squeezing the opposition back, smothering them in their own half.

Marcelo Bielsa signs two-year contract to become new Leeds United manager
It is a style of play that comes with risks - there is plenty of space behind the defensive line in which the opposition can launch their counter attacks. And it is a style that demands constant movement, relentless physical effort.
When it works it is exhilarating, the team launching wave after wave of attacks, leaving the opponent reeling on the ropes.

One of his most impressive sides was the Argentina team who qualified in fine style for the 2002 World Cup. Come the competition, though, they bombed out in the group phase. At the end of the European season the players were simply not fresh enough to carry out the gameplan.

Marcelo Bielsa screams at his players from the sidelines during Argentina's 1-1 draw with Sweden at the 2002 World Cup
This has to be a concern with Leeds. In his spells with Athletic Bilbao and Marseille it was noticeable that the team fell away towards the end of the campaign, drained by the tiring requirements of doing things the Bielsa way.

Had the season lasted six months, then the teams might have won some silverware. Nine months was asking too much. Over the gruelling course of a campaign in the Championship, this may be a problem.
It is also possible that the appointment has come too late. Bielsa is now approaching 63, and his last job - a spell in charge of Lille - was not a success.

What Bielsa proposed once came across as revolutionary. It may be the case that football has now largely incorporated his concepts of intense pressing, and that Bielsa no longer has novelty value.
But he will surely be energised by the atmosphere in English stadiums. While he was in charge of Argentina he had no place for the foot-on-the-ball elegance of playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme.
He went along to a testimonial match as the stadium of Boca Juniors, where Riquelme was an idol. Bielsa was jeered by a packed crowd - and he loved it. "It is the essence of football," he said of the fans' response.

He will now experience another type of essence in the Championship, and will doubtless be fascinated by the way that English crowds live and breathe football.
His appointment is excellent news for Leeds.

Providing he is given what he wants and terms of the contract are respected, Bielsa will launch himself into the project with a maniacal frenzy, barely sleeping as he ploughs through videos of future opponents.
Leeds players and fans now have a dream to be part of, and the Championship can boast the presence of one the most fascinating coaches in the global game.

Vel. Det som selges , gir penger inn, som bør investeres i samme pott som Loco allerede har fått. Så selger vi for 15mp ( kun et tall ), og Loco har fått 20mp i potten, ja da bør potten økes til 35mp

Vi må vel legge på store beløp til lønninger også, ikke bare kjøpesummen. Hvis det kjøpes kvalitet.

Noen som vet hva slags type spillere Bielsa pleier å hente inn? Løpssterke? Tenikere? Fysiske?
Kan han få mye ut av spillere med sin taktikk /spille stil uten at de er kjempedyre?

Blir kalt verdens beste coach som får det beste ut av spillerene. Men vi må glemme at vi skal ha billigst mulige spillere. Kvalitet koster penger. Bedre med en god, enn to halvgode

Dem har inntil 20 mill pund å bruke, men målet var å få mest ut av pengene og de blir ikke brukt hvis dem ikke må. Kommer den rette spilleren så var dem klare til å bruke penger. Sunn tilnærming.

Tror nok flere kan få en ny vår med Bielsa. Han liker å bruke de han har og utvikle dem. Flere som vi ønsker ut har kvaliteter, det har dem vist før dem kom til Leeds og enkelte ganger i Leeds drakten. Men det har vist seg at å komme til Leeds kan være potensielt karriere drepende for mange spillere. Dette tror jeg blir annerledes under Bielsa. Innsats og hardt arbeid gir resultater. Ingenting hadde vært morsommere enn ann Phillips tar steget og spiller stabilt bra, Rey gjør anker plassen til sin egen, Sakho får ut sitt potensiale, Cooper solid hver gang han får sjansen, Dallas får av seg både noen kilo og piggsko sånn at han kan løpe osv. O'Kane var veldig god i starten forrige sesong og stort sett elending resten. Så potensialet er der. Har jo tross alt levert toppklasse i CC før og vært stabil i PL. Klarer han å få Anita til å skinne igjen, han var jo et rivjern på defensiv midtbane bare for noen år siden.

Forventer ny førstekeeper (Gunn) Et par stoppere (Bartley og han Argentineren på lån fra Spurs), ny midtbanespiller, en ving og ihvertfall en spiss, og det er nok Abel H.  Om det blir flere spisser avhenger vel av om Ekuban forsvinner (Noe som har blitt antydet) Roberts sitt nivå og om Roofe selges (Et klart JA for 7 mill pund)

Vi vil helt sikkert se enkelte som hentes er på et annet nivå enn tidligere, men tror også vi får se Bielsa signeringer som enkelte her inne vil bli skuffet over. Men sånn jeg har forstått angående Bielsa så er potensiale og at dem passer hans stil viktigere enn navn, pris og status.

Summasumarum, likevel håper jeg spillere som Dallas, O'Kane, Cibicki, De Bock,Antonsson, Anita, Wiedwald, Lonergan, Murphy og sikkert et par til selges/gis bort da stallen er stor og vi frigjør penger. Håper dem heller prioriterer de største talentene fra u-23 som back up.

Har ikke trua på å bruke masse penger og bytte ut halve stallen. Hvorfor bruke 20-35 mill pund når vi kanskje allerede har flere av dem hos oss allerede? Pengene som ikke brukes blir jo ikke borte. Greit å ha mulighet til å forsterke i januar, da er jo gode spillere ekstra dyre også.

Nevnt det før og slenger det ut igjen nå. Saiz, Alioski, Rey og Phillips blir STORE neste sesong. Samtidig så er det noe med Sakho jeg føler Bielsa kan klare å utnytte :)

Har ikke trua på å bruke masse penger og bytte ut halve stallen. Hvorfor bruke 20-35 mill pund når vi kanskje allerede har flere av dem hos oss allerede? Pengene som ikke brukes blir jo ikke borte. Greit å ha mulighet til å forsterke i januar, da er jo gode spillere ekstra dyre også.

Nevnt det før og slenger det ut igjen nå. Saiz, Alioski, Rey og Phillips blir STORE neste sesong. Samtidig så er det noe med Sakho jeg føler Bielsa kan klare å utnytte :)

Phillips er ikke god nok. Sacko er der hvor vi har vært med Kebe. Muligens topp ti av de verste signeringene i klubbens historie.

Vi får svaret på det etterhvert. Sakho har jeg egentlig gitt opp, men at han har noe uforløst er det ingen tvil om.

Phillips var vel toppscorer etter 10 kamper, spilte fantastisk. Falt sammen som et dårlig stablet korthus som resten av laget. En Phillips som blir pisket til å løpe box to box mener jeg har alle forutsettninger for å lykkes. Time will show :)

Alt ser uansett mye bedre ut i dag enn på samme tid i fjor, og da hadde vi hatt en ganske ok sesong. Blir spennende fremover. :)

Under 18 coach Mark Jackson

Extremely excited. Be fantastic for us as coaches to have such a manager at the club  #mot

Hmm.. dette er noko som endå ikkje har vore omdiskutert, så vidt eg kan sjå.

Trur de Bielsas' trenareigenskapar vil "smitte nedover" i systemet? Ein skal jo ikkje sjå vekk ifrå at resterande trenara i klubben kan dra nytte av den enorme kunnskapsbasen / databasen kalla Bielsa?

Skal berre sjå at Leeds om 5 år er full av sjølvtenkande, innovative trenarar  ;D

EDIT: Håpar berre språkbarrieren ikkje vert for stor / langvarig.. Han får ha engelsktimar på øyra medan han ser fotballkampar på TV'en  ;) ;)

Stor sjanse for at phillips kan blomstre under Bielsa. Undervurdert, stort potensiale. Kraft og pondus offensivt i banen. Han er ikke ballfordeler. Men gode løp og kraft skal man aldri undervurdere i et godt balansert lag

...slik jeg ser det har han et stort potensiale innen Bielsa-fotballen (løpskapasitet, god i press og gjenvinning pluss et godt skudd) men har èn ting han må jobbe kraftig med, pasningskvaliteten...

Nei men er jo mer sammensatt.tror bielsas spillestil er til hans fordel. Tror han vil tjene på å få en definert rolle. De siste 3 trenerene har jo ikke funnet ut hvor han er best.
At han har potensial til å spille PL er det lite tvil om. Men han er avhengig av en god sesong i CC.

Vi har jo drevet å brukt han som dyptliggende ballfordeler. Nytter ikke. Høyt i banen og han leverer mål og målsjanser.

På silt ja, men vi er fortsatt et middels CC lag med en ikke utømmelig lommebok.
Vi må handle inn kvalitet først og fremst der det skriker. Tviler på st vi kommer til å kjøpe inn 11 nye spillere.
Men for all del. Rad og orta overrasker og vil overraske mer i juli måned  8)

Det kan godt hende dine analyser er riktige mht Phillips. I min verden har han ikke gode nok basisferdigheter til å være i startellveren til Leeds eller i et PL lag. Ikke spesielt rask, takler ofte klønete, ikke spesielt god i lufta, dårlig i pasningsspill. Han har bra løpskapasitet, det skal han ha. Blir overrasket hvis Bielsa satser på ham. Men for alt hva jeg vet, så må jeg kanskje ete i meg ordene :)

Klart han har begrensninger. Det er det ingen tvil om.
Men under Bielsa kommer vi til å opptre mer tro mot sterke prinsipper og formasjon.
Øyvind Leonardsen var ikke noe Zidane, men enormt viktig i Drillos suksess.
Han hadde en nøkkelrolle i et bra kollektiv. Spissferdigheter som gagnet laget. Viktig at balansen vår blir bedre neste sesong. Vi manglet ulikheter og spisskompetanse. Var like ille som under warnock spør du meg

Bielsa-analyse fra 2015 - ganske god:

Who is Marcelo Bielsa, fabled manager and cult hero?
El Loco has won league titles in Argentina and an Olympic gold medal with the national team but his personality, vision and tacticals have made him a cult hero

By Matt Gault for These Football Times, part of the Guardian Sport Network

Matt Gault
Thu 17 Dec 2015 06.05 EST Last modified on Wed 21 Feb 2018 08.21 EST

With one brief, shocking press conference, he was gone. Following Olympique Marseille’s 1-0 defeat to Caen in August, Marcelo Bielsa announced that he was stepping down as head coach. “I took my decision on Wednesday,” the coach told perplexed cluster of journalists. “I’ve finished my work here. I’m going back to Argentina.”

After a characteristically headline-grabbing, exhilaratingly chaotic 12 months in charge, Bielsa’s rising tide in Ligue 1 was suddenly no more. He had drafted a resignation letter but left it in his office as he took charge of the club for the last time. Patrolling the technical area with the usual maniacal paroxysm, nobody inside the packed Stade Vélodrome would have suspected that, buried beneath a flurry of thoughts in Bielsa’s restless mind, he was planning to announce his departure.


Unsurprisingly, the news hit the fans and players hard. After arriving in the summer of 2014, the notorious, fanatical doctrine of “Bielsista’ had captured the imagination of the club’s voracious supporters. He had swept into the south of France in a wave of excitement and wasted no time in endearing himself to the raucous MTP (Marseille Trop Puissant – the club’s most hardened faction of supporters).

He started with a bang, too. Marseille, as documented by Philippe Auclair, is one of France’s “crazier” clubs. A Marseillas is undoubtedly a fan of unrelenting passion, but the club’s support have experienced a whirlwind of emotions over the past number of years, with everything from winning the Champions League in 1993 to suffering a decade of decline prompted by the financial irregularities and match-fixing scandal surrounding then president Bernard Tapie, which plunged them into enforced relegation while being stripped of the Ligue 1 title they had won in 1993. The never-ending carousel of managers further added to the sense of volatility at the club.

Bielsa was the club’s 36th head coach in 28 years. Known affectionately as “El Loco”, he came with a sparkling reputation for being one of the most revered tactical thinkers in the game. By Christmas, the south of France was already gripped with Bielsista fever. His remarkably intense persona seemed to align well with the club’s fans and the marriage was serene in its first few months.


After an initial stumble in his first two matches, a breathlessly frustrating 3-3 draw with Bastia and a 2-0 home defeat to Montpellier, the Bielsa effect began to take hold – and the former Chile and Athletic Bilbao boss oversaw a glorious run of eight consecutive victories. Thanks in no small part to the prodigious goalscoring talents of André-Pierre Gignac up front, Bielsa’s well-documented hard-pressing philosophy had been embraced by the players and, as a result, they were operating with optimum efficiency and fluidity.

They alternated between his trademark 3-3-1-3 and a more conservative – but equally effective – 4-2-3-1. Although it differed slightly in shape from some of the Bielsa teams down the years, the philosophy was very much the same. Through a combination of tireless workrate and intelligent positioning, Marseille bamboozled a number of teams as they rode the crest of a wave in September and October, recording resounding victories over Nice, Rennes and Reims.

By the start of December, Marseille were top of the table and plenty of column inches in the French press had been dedicated to portraying Bielsa as a mastermind coach. Marseille’s talented squad was tested to the extreme by their coach’s intensive, militaristic methods in training, but they were responding to his charisma – and his vision.


“The workouts are intense but enlightening, technically and tactically,” said Gignac. “He knows everything to the smallest detail. I glanced at his training schedules; there are hundreds of them and every one featured games he analysed. He taught us a vibrant, real type of football.” This snapshot of glowing praise from one of Bielsa’s prized assets illustrated exactly how he can enrapture footballing minds. Marseille’s young and technically gifted players were desperate for a leader and, with Bielsa’s level of meticulousness now available to them, they bagged themselves a pretty good one.

Plenty of footage from Bielsa’s training sessions at La Commanderie, Marseille’s resplendent training facility, is available on YouTube – and it makes for compelling viewing. We see him totally engaged with his side, barking orders and remonstrating wildly while they play the football of his making. At the end of the sessions, Bielsa claps and lauds the efforts of his players, patting them on the back while they attempt to get their breath back.

Bielsa demands a lot from players, but they respond to his philosophy and, like him, have confidence in the benefits of playing such chaotic, aggressive football. Bielsa has always issued instructions, team talks, lectures and video analysis sessions with the utmost self-confidence. At Marseille, certainly during the first half of the season, there was an overriding sense that the fans and first-team squad had bought it into what he was preaching.


Bielsa has always adhered to the “running is everything” motto and his players didn’t shy away from this taxing physical demand. From the outside looking in, Bielsa may have cut a ghastly figure, stalking the pitch on the touchline and displaying an explosive temperament. But to Marseille, he had quickly grown to become their leader.

However, not long after Bielsa’s honeymoon period at the Vélodrome, the romance petered out and made way for a spell of drama and discord. After the turn of the year, defeats became regular as performances became erratic. Having been perched at Ligue 1’s summit in December, they lumbered through a period in April that included four straight defeats, including a particularly bruising 3-2 home defeat to PSG.

Wildly unpredictable by this stage, Bielsa guided his side through a strong finish in winning their last four league games, including an enthralling 4-0 victory away at Lille in the penultimate game. But the mood had changed and matters behind the scenes had become less than sanguine. Club president Vincent Labrune had initially hailed the appointment of Bielsa as a wonderful moment for Marseille and compared it to “signing Lionel Messi for 12 months”. Labrune was hoping to retain Bielsa’s services for a far greater length of time but it didn’t work out as either party had hoped.


Bielsa’s departure seemed to come out of nowhere. Just 48 hours before addressing the media for the final time, the coach had talked positively about his contract but differences with Labrune had prompted his decision to depart. And like that, Marseille were plunged into darkness as Bielsa closed another eventful chapter in his storied career.

Why, then, do we celebrate a manager who overworked his side to the point of physical collapse and resigned after just a year in charge? Because his ideas are bold, daring and revolutionary. He may not be held in the same regard as more trophy-laden managers of the modern game, but he still stands among a select few as an innovator, a thinker, a mentor and a symbol of footballing intellect.

His acumen and grasp of tactical intricacies is borne out of his upbringing in a successful, career-driven family. His brother Rafael is a former minister of foreign relations in Argentina and his sister, Maria Eugenia, is a renowned architect. But Bielsa was not interested in such a career. He was driven from a very young age to be a footballer, and left home at 15 to live at the club accommodation at Newell’s Old Boys. It was here, at one of Argentina’s most illustrious clubs, that the seeds of Bielsa’s undying football obsession were sown.

Bielsa’s grandfather amassed a colossal collection of books and his grandson cultivated an unusual obsession with video footage. Bielsa has spent months of his managerial career consuming reams and reams of videos, constantly perpetuating his education as a student of football. He impressed the Vélez Sarsfield board when he was interviewed for the manager’s position in 1997 when he brought several tapes as proof of how he could improve the team. It quickly became apparent that he had an astonishing work ethic.

Bielsa is an exhausting coach to work with, something that has been attributed to his demanding mother who was tough to impress. However, in spite of this, he couldn’t quite make it playing football. He was a technical defender but lacked pace and spent the bulk of his career floating anonymously around Argentina’s lower leagues before deciding to quit the game and study physical education.

His first major coaching role was with the Buenos Aires university football team and he spent two years there before returning to Newell’s and establishing himself as a protégé with the reserves. He eventually replaced José Yudica as first-team coach and facilitated a dramatic change. Bielsa introduced a flexible, fluid 4-3-3 with pacey wingers who were able to adapt to a 3-4-3 seamlessly. The system began to work after Bielsa organised structured, regimented and wholly intense training schedules that mixed tactical sessions, ball work and video analysis. Bielsa demanded a lot – even from the youngest members of the squad.


The players were required to prepare detailed dossiers on the opposition and have the capacity to highlight key moments in play during a video session. Bielsa would ask a player to demonstrate a tactical trend or mishap from screenshots and footage. This particular method has grown in popularity over the years, but back then it was fresh and innovative, with Old Boys claiming the league title after a playoff victory over Boca Juniors.

Of course, there were heartaches as well as ecstasies at Newell’s and, at times, football threatened to swallow him up. His reactions to losing were sometimes extreme and difficult to comprehend. After the acute ignominy of being hammered 6-0 by Santa Fe, Bielsa locked himself away and reflected deeply on the game. “I shut myself in my room,” he said. “I turned off the light, closed the curtains, and I realised the true meaning of an expression we sometimes use lightly: ‘I want to die.’ I burst into tears. I could not understand what was happening around me. I suffered as a professional and I suffered as a fan.

“For three months our daughter was held between life and death,” he later said. “Now she is fine. Does it make any sense that I want the earth to swallow me over the result of a football match? The reasoning was brilliant, but nonetheless, my suffering from what had happened demanded immediate vindication.”


Extraordinary. We can see how Bielsa views football. It is not just a game for him, but a way of life, an ideal. Like many, Bielsa became fascinated with the Total Football philosophy pioneered by Rinus Michels with the Dutch side in the 1970s. Bielsa believed, like Michels and later Arrigo Sacchi, that it was important to embrace and encourage the versatility within a player.

He formulated the 4-3-3/3-4-3 system and has abided by four core principles: concentración, permanente movilidad, rotación y repenitización (concentration, permanent focus, rotation and improvisation). His school of thought occupied somewhere between the two prevailing ideologies in Argentinian football – menottista (romantic idealist) and bilardista (territorial and tactically driven), from César Luis Menotti and Carlos Bilardo, who guided their country to World Cup success in 1978 and 1986 respectively.

Bielsa was also influenced by Uruguayan legend Óscar Tabárez and, solidifying his doctrine, he guided Newell’s to the Copa Libertadores final in 1992, where they lost to São Paulo. Following that Bielsa resigned, much to the dismay of his players. However, his managerial model and tactical approach had been cemented – and he was ready for new challenges.

Bielsa spent six years as the head coach of the national team, winning an Olympic gold medal in 2004. Although he didn’t succeed in the World Cup in 2002, Bielsa’s reputation as an accomplished tactical brain was burgeoning and he was high in demand after leaving Argentina. His next journey was with Chile, and it was under him that La Roja became one of the most electrifying teams in world football.

Innovative and thrilling in the 3-3-1-3 system, Bielsa’s Chile were inherently attacking and pressed high up the pitch aggressively. They progressed to the last-16 in the 2010 World Cup but were ultimately undone by an on-song Brazil. Although they were humbled by their South American counterparts, Bielsa’s popularity soared in Chile and there was, once again, a great deal of sorrow when he resigned, citing differences with the country’s football federation.

For many, it was Bielsa’s emergence as manager of Athletic Bilbao that made them sit up and take notice. He took over from Joaquín Caparrós in the summer of 2011 and once again enacted dramatic changes to the set-up and style of football. Bilbao had finished sixth under Caparrós but there were growing concerns over his particularly bland style and when Josu Urrutia – a former midfielder and club legend – became Bilbao’s president, Bielsa was instated.

Typically, Bielsa had no qualms in abandoning the tactics of his predecessor to mould his own side. Javi Martínez, Bielsa thought, was suited more to being deployed deeper into the defensive line, while he introduced genuine width in the play with Markel Susaeta, Iker Muniain and Ibai Gómez. Ander Herrera was signed from Real Zaragoza in 2011 and immediately became instrumental to Bielsa’s attacking vision at San Mamés.

Bielsa’s off-field eccentricities manifested themselves full throttle at Bilbao. Months after he had arrived, the players were still amused and baffled by him. His preparation for taking over as head coach was immense – and it amazed them. Before Bielsa took his first training session, he had watched all 38 of Bilbao’s league games from the previous season, writing a mountain of notes and collating them together into coherent lectures. But, as it had done with the Chile national team, Bielsa’s madness was infectious and charming. In training, Bielsa demanded the absolute maximum from everyone, overseeing gruelling sprint sessions before playing out potential match situations, with Bielsa always preaching high pressure and joining in as much as he observed.

He taught the Basque players how to synchronise their movement and, most noticeably, how to out-run the opposition. Bielsa’s teachings came full circle in their fascinating two-legged display against Manchester United in the Europa League last-16 in March 2012. Bielsa’s hard-running, relentless outfit completely outplayed Sir Alex Ferguson’s side. Beleaguered, yes, from their group stage exit from the Champions League, but there wouldn’t have been much a high-flying United team could have done about Bilbao.

United may have taken the lead but Bilbao were never perturbed. They didn’t veer from Bielsa’s tactics and, come the end of the night, it was the men in green that were huddled in joy on the Old Trafford turf, as the home supporters applauded in appreciation at the sheer quality of the visitors. Bielsa was a bundle of restless energy on the touchline – as usual – but his incessant pacing wasn’t done in vain and, by the time Muniain had scored his side’s third goal, all of Europe were talking about Bielsa’s Bilbao.

That season, he guided Los Leones to the final of both the Europa League and the Copa del Rey. They fell short on both occasions, but Bielsa had constructed an exciting Bilbao team and drew glowing praise from onlookers. Pep Guardiola, who felt a strong affinity with Bielsa after seeking his advice at the start of his own managerial career, described Bilbao as “fascinating” and labelled the players as “beasts”. Ferguson complimented Bielsa’s organisation and determination, accepting that his United side had been well and truly beaten.

His project at Bilbao started to unravel before his eventual departure but he left a great legacy and impression in that part of Spain, like he did with all of his teams. Shortly after he resigned from Marseille, there were reports that he was in talks to succeed another towering personality in Miguel Herrera as Mexico coach. In a way, I’m glad that didn’t happen. When Sam Allardyce left West Ham, some fans dreamed of Bielsa. He is yet to grace the Premier League and, although some have argued that his chaotic style is more suited to international football, moving to Swansea City would represent another intriguing prospect in his career.

Some managers should not be judged on their haul of trophies and titles. Bielsa is one of them. Three Argentinian league titles and an Olympic gold is maybe not a spectacular return but that should not be the barometer with which we measure Bielsa’s genius and his impact on the way modern football is played.

Perhaps his theoretical preachings should be tempered to win trophies, without Bielsa we may well never have had the glory of watching Guardiola’s Barcelona, such was his impact on the Spaniard and his work as manager. His interminable quest for the ideal is what keeps drawing people to Bielsa. While he never may win a Champions League or World Cup, Bielsa’s profound effect on tactical trends and coaching philosophies is what makes him a mastermind. He is one that has always prioritised the execution of the process over the eventual outcome and football should love him for it, even if he exhausts as much as he invigorates. Savour it while it lasts.

Dette er en oppsummering av historikken siste 4 åra. Kilde: Wikipedia

Marseille
2. mai 2014 ble Bielsa presentert som ny trener i Marseille hvor han skrev under på en 2-årskontrakt[12]. Laget ledet tabellen i ved nyttår, men etter bare fire seire på 14 kamper i perioden januar - april, lå laget på femteplass på tabellen. De avsluttet sesongen sterkt med fire seire på rad og kom på fjerdeplass i Ligue 1. Etter første seriekamp 8. august 2015 sjokkerte han klubben ved å si opp. På en pressekonferanse to dager tidligere, sa han at han ble i klubben ut sesongen og at han var fornøyd med spillertroppen[13].

Lazio   
6. juli 2016 ble han ansatt som trener for den italienske toppklubben SS Lazio, men trakk seg to dager senere.[14] Han begrunnet avgjørelsen med at klubben ikke hadde signert nok nye spillere som det var avtalt etter 18 spillere forsvant etter sesongslutt.[15]

Lille   
19. februar ble det klart at Bielsa skal overta den franske klubben Lille OSC 30. juni etter sesongen er over.[16] Lille fikk en dårlig start på sesongen og laget lå på nest siste plass da Bielsa den 22. november 2017 ble suspendert av klubben etter han foretok en uautorisert tur til Chile for å besøke en venn som hadde kreft.[17] 15. desember fikk han sparken.[18]

Vi trenger faktisk litt edruelighet mtp forventninger, det er sant. Allikevel er dette et signal om satsing uten sidestykke. Men selvsagt ingen garanti om å lykkes.

Omtrent på dagen for fire år siden bestemte Cellino seg for å ansette Dave Hockaday som ny trener for Leeds United. Man skulle ikke tro at dette er samme klubb ;)
Herregud så mye rart vi Leedssupportere opplever ;D
Bielsa har satt Leeds i ekstase før han har ankommet. Dette er stort og uvirkelig :)
Men Bielsa er sikkert ikke like hendig med saltbøssene som The Hock?

Det mest spennende er om han passer til ch.ship fotball. TC startet bra i fjor med sin taktikk fra kontinentet . Med motgang klappet han litt sammen og kom ikke på offensiven. Noe dårlige spillere også. Bielsa er en annen personlighet, men vil garantert møte sportslig motgang en gang neste sesong. Da får vi vite hva som bor i ham.  Nøkkelen blir å snu dårlige perioder og gjøre dem kortest mulig.  Og vinne kjedelige kamper på dårlige dager.

French viewpoint of Marcelo Bielsa arrival at Leeds United
By Charlie Sopp on Jun 18, 2018 

I’ve made some good connections since I started writing and this is certainly one of them. A French football fan who knows his stuff and he is extremely interested and intrigued by the appointment of Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United. Having spent time at both Marseille and Lille it’s a great perspective of Bielsa from France.

Fan view from Jean-Felix
1. What is the French perspective of Marcelo Bielsa?
1- “Marcelo Bielsa is a controversial trainer. Not only in France, but everywhere in the world. He has his ideas, and pushes his work always very far in the details. It works like nobody else. Either we admire the character, or his methods do not like. It’s all one or the other. He is a fascinating coach because he only lives and works for football, day and night. A true lover of the ball, the game and training methods, to build the best team possible.”

2. He managed both OM and Lille, what was the situation with both?
2- “Marcelo Bielsa arrived on the side of Marseille to give color to a historic club, which is close, we can say, Argentine clubs, by his fervor and passion. He will have left an indelible mark, most fans love him. He will have transmitted his rigor of work to Marseille players, and it was seen on the ground, it is undeniable. Moreover, the players still praise his work and his daily involvement, in order to make everyone progress. The story ended badly because Bielsa is someone who has only one word and who has not been turned upside down. He is very picky about contracts, and does not hesitate to slam the door in case of deep disagreement. In Lille, he arrived with Gerard Lopez, but it was not a success. many arrivals and departures, a upheaval that will not work. Many disagreements again, and a story that will not last.”

3. What are your initial reactions that Bielsa has taken over at Leeds United in the Championship?
3- “I think it’s great. I can not wait to see what his work can bring to a club like Leeds United. It’s a big challenge for him, and I think he likes it.”

4. Should Leeds fans be excited about the new manager?
4- “Yes, without a doubt. But that does not mean that it will work immediately. We will have to give him time and expect big changes in the athlete’s functioning. It’s exciting, and not just for Leeds fans (haha).”

5. What should the fans expect, football wise?
5- “The fans will be able to discover a real passionate, who loves football deeply. He asks a lot of his players, high pressing, racing rehearsals, great intensity with and without ball. It’s spectacular and beautiful to see. But you have to be able to support that for the players. Either you join, or it’s complicated. Players can only progress alongside Bielsa, in my opinion.”

6. We’ve heard a lot about his 3-3-1-3 formation, is it as exciting as we hear?
6- “Yes it’s exciting because unusual. He likes this system but can allow to change regularly, depending on the opponent. He adapts to his players and the different teams he meets. Always find the best way to overthrow the opponent according to his strengths and weaknesses.”
A huge thank you to Jean-Felix (again) for taking the time to answer these questions. It’s fair to say Marcelo Bielsa left his mark on French football.

Marcelo Bielsa: Leeds United's new boss a complete 'one off'

Marcelo Bielsa looks on from the sidelines as Argentina take on Sweden in the 2002 World Cup

I well recall my first face-to-face experience with new Leeds United coach Marcelo Bielsa.

It was the 1999 Copa America and he was in charge of Argentina. His team had just been beaten 3-0 by Colombia, his centre forward Martin Palermo had missed three penalties and Bielsa had been sent off.

In the press conference he sat staring into space, refusing to make eye contact with anyone - his usual stance. He was asked what he had made of the referee's performance.

If the question was predictable, the answer was anything but.

"One doesn't usually have the habit of commenting on referees, but…" he said, leaving everyone to believe he would continue with a rant about a joker running amok with a whistle. Instead he proceeded with, "but in respect of my expulsion, the referee was absolutely correct because I protested in an ill mannered form."

It was a wonderful welcome to the gloriously eccentric world of Marcelo Bielsa, a complete one off who has spent his career dancing to his own drum.

From a family of illustrious lawyers in the city of Rosario, Bielsa instead followed his love for football and, when he realised he would not be a world class centre back, he switched his ambitions to coaching.

So revered is Bielsa at his local club, Newell's Old Boys, that the stadium is named after him. He is also revered in Chile. He was no longer in charge when the Chilean national team finally got their hands on some silverware, winning the Copa America in 2015 and 2016. But he had built the team, enthused the players with his spirit and then resigned and handed them over to his successors.

Getty Images Bielsa

When he took the Argentina job, at the end of his first training session Bielsa handed the players a pencil and a little slip of paper. He wanted them to write down whether they wanted to line up with a back three or a four. He went through all the replies.

"Back four, back four, back four... This clearly shows your preference for a line of four. But I'm telling you that from now on we're going to be playing with a back three. See you tomorrow," he said as he turned and walked off. And he won them over, bringing them round to his way of thinking.

Very few of his former players ever speak badly about him. If they show him they are prepared to run, then he showers them with support - and he usually lets the players elect their own captain on the grounds that he should be a representative of the dressing room rather than the coaching staff.

This is typical Bielsa. His esteem and importance, which has earned him admiration and glowing praise from Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino, comes far more from the influence he has exerted than for the trophies he has won.

That influence comes from the determination to do things his way.

Bielsa is the high priest of the high press. One of his principal concepts is that in a team that wants to attack - and his teams always want to attack - the conventional full-back is a waste of a player.

He wants his width higher up the field. He wants both full-backs pushing up, linking with the wingers to create two-against-one situations down the flanks and squeezing the opposition back, smothering them in their own half.

Marcelo Bielsa signs two-year contract to become new Leeds United manager
It is a style of play that comes with risks - there is plenty of space behind the defensive line in which the opposition can launch their counter attacks. And it is a style that demands constant movement, relentless physical effort.

When it works it is exhilarating, the team launching wave after wave of attacks, leaving the opponent reeling on the ropes.

One of his most impressive sides was the Argentina team who qualified in fine style for the 2002 World Cup. Come the competition, though, they bombed out in the group phase. At the end of the European season the players were simply not fresh enough to carry out the gameplan.

Getty Images
Marcelo Bielsa screams at his players from the sidelines during Argentina's 1-1 draw with Sweden at the 2002 World Cup
This has to be a concern with Leeds. In his spells with Athletic Bilbao and Marseille it was noticeable that the team fell away towards the end of the campaign, drained by the tiring requirements of doing things the Bielsa way.

Had the season lasted six months, then the teams might have won some silverware. Nine months was asking too much. Over the gruelling course of a campaign in the Championship, this may be a problem.

It is also possible that the appointment has come too late. Bielsa is now approaching 63, and his last job - a spell in charge of Lille - was not a success.

What Bielsa proposed once came across as revolutionary. It may be the case that football has now largely incorporated his concepts of intense pressing, and that Bielsa no longer has novelty value.

But he will surely be energised by the atmosphere in English stadiums. While he was in charge of Argentina he had no place for the foot-on-the-ball elegance of playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme.

He went along to a testimonial match as the stadium of Boca Juniors, where Riquelme was an idol. Bielsa was jeered by a packed crowd - and he loved it. "It is the essence of football," he said of the fans' response.

He will now experience another type of essence in the Championship, and will doubtless be fascinated by the way that English crowds live and breathe football.

His appointment is excellent news for Leeds.

Providing he is given what he wants and terms of the contract are respected, Bielsa will launch himself into the project with a maniacal frenzy, barely sleeping as he ploughs through videos of future opponents.

Leeds players and fans now have a dream to be part of, and the Championship can boast the presence of one the most fascinating coaches in the global game.

Jeg ser to momenter som spesielt viktig for suksess med Bielsa:

1. Bielsa får jobbe i fred
2. Bielsa klarer å håndtere en lang sesong med masse kamper. Krav til spillerne blir store, håper de klarer å levere også når vi er i mars.

Her er ønskelisten Bielsa hadde i Marseille: Kanskje vi plukker noen herfra??
Jara, Medel, Manquillo, isla, Montoya, Coke, Ocampos, Rekik, Aurier,
Tello og Stambouli.
Usikker på hvor de spiller og hvor realistisk disse kan være for oss.

Den første brøkdelen: DETTE BLIR LANGT!!!



Bielsa on language barrier

"I'm conscious of the importance of getting the written or spoken word across. The biggest factor that gets players going is emotion. But there are other ways of getting things across."



Bielsa on negotiations

"I am very meticulous and careful in these processes. Having spoken with Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzanni I found two people very keen to reassess the club. I am very conscious they didn't want to promise something they couldn't fulfil."


Bielsa on budget


"I have spoken long with the club president about what we need and what our aims are. We all agreed that these needs and objectives weren't to be highly exaggerated. In terms of putting them into practice is above my job spec, I am confident these issues will be solved."

   


Bielsa on being called 'best in the world'
 

"I don't want to be accused of false modesty. Guardiola is the best manager in the world, his ideas have been created by himself. I have never seen any traits of my teams in his. As for Pochettino, he's built his own career and has adapted his style which is quite unique to him. Those two can be considered references for other people than I have been a reference to them. I know myself very well and I have studied there styles in depth and I am not just saying it, I am convinced of what I say."





Bielsa on squad
 

"The players I want to keep are the players I can guarantee game time too. I think the club has about 15 players too many and there are four or five positions we need to strengthen."
 


Bielsa on players...
 

"I have seen all 51 games Leeds United played last season and the two friendlies in Myanmar but I have not had the day to day contact with them yet. In the same way I may have recommendations about players coming in we have to make an assessment too."



Bielsa on what players need...

"Mental strength, ability on the ball and skill, being intelligent enough with different styles of play, strong and brave, competitive spirit - in an ideal word, there is no player anywhere who fits that bill."


Bielsa on what would be a success this season
 

"There are many ways to ask questions that we find impossible to answer. With the history of this club everyone knows what success and failure is at the end of the season. If you are trying to predict the future it is much better to be reasonable and measured.
 


Bielsa on Argentina's World Cup struggles
 

"I believe in the players and Messi's leadership which I believe will come across tomorrow. The staff are good and they will learn from those two games moving forward."

 


Bielsa on Premier League ambition...
 

"It's imprudent to promise something when you cannot be certain over things. At the same time it would be impossible not to be dreaming about it."



Bielsa on transfers...


"For the moment we are not intending to bring too many new faces in. From my point of view the club have plenty of players on the books who we should keep. I get names from Victor Orta and I then give my opinion on those players and if we are on the same page then the process begins."

 


Bielsa on tactics...
 

"We have an obligation as a managers to put into place what we believe is right. We can't expect people to follow us if we don't believe it ourselves."



Bielsa on why he has come to Leeds United



"It was a case of convincing myself. No-one had to convince me to come to Leeds United. I was convinced by the strength by Leeds both on and off the field. I looked at things from a sport and football point of view."


Radrizzani


"He has chosen us. He had many options but he has come here to help and change Leeds United."
   


Radrizzani...
 

"It's a very excited day for the club. We are very happy he has chosen us."




Marcelo Bielsa has arrived...
 

Here we go...

Er sånn overalt nå.
Skal være en rimelig liten klubb hvis manageren gjør alt av oppgaver.
Bielsa er en sterk personlighet som er ufattelig flink til å få det beste ut av spillerne og skape en god samla tropp.

Klubben vet jo at hvis det skjærer seg med Bielsa og spillerlogestikk er han på flyet hjem til Argentina med en gang.

Synes han virket reflektert, ydmyk i forhold til seg selv og hva han har oppnådd.
Er det en som kan få inn trygghet og selvtilitt i spillerne våre er det han.

I tillegg ber han pent om å ikke svare på ting som ut av respekt for lag og spillere ville vært kontroversielt å svare på. Han svarer klokt på spørsmål som er rettet mot å få frem hva han tror fremtiden blir.

Spennende å se hvem de evt nye spillerne blir og hvor langt de evt har kommet i den prosessen.

Bielsa on his English

English lessons will play an important part in Marcelo Bielsa’s first months at Leeds United with the hope he will be fluent by the end of the season.

The Argentinian has already been devoting several hours every day for the past three weeks to learning the language, but it will be some time before he tries to speak English in public.

It is understood he will use the example shown by Mauricio Pochettino, a close friend and acolyte, when he first came to the UK.

Bielsa's key points

We’ll have plenty more reaction to Bielsa’s press conference for you shortly, but here’s a summery of some of the main lines:

His squad needs to be strengthened in ‘four or five areas’
He is willing to let as many as 15 players leave
His team will attack
He watched every one of Leeds’ 51 matches last season - plus their post-season friendlies in Myanmar
Video analysis is hugely important
He knows ‘everything a foreigner could know about Leeds United’
16:37

Our take on Bielsa's presser

We’ve been live on Facebook to discuss what we made of this afternoon’s press conference.

Have a watch here...


15:36

Photo ops...

And now onto some snaps that will be appearing on tomorrow’s back pages..


15:22

That's all for now...

Stick around though, plenty more to come...

15:21

Is he a Clough and Revie man?

Who did he prefer? Don’t get this one wrong Marcelo...

In terms of winning the right way, I prefer to lose than cheat or play tricks.

I prefer beautiful football rather than over -pragmatic football. You’re not allowed to play outside the rules, it doesn’t bring you trophies.

Playing well brings you closer to winning things.

I don’t think we can claim playing badly is a means to an end to win.

15:19

Can he get Leeds playing in his no-nonsense style?

Yes, when you come to an environment like this everything is done in a very professional manner.

Is Leeds known for being hard working? I thought the industrial north was higher up the country.

15:17

On pre-season friendlies

Is he happy with them?

I know the level at which our future opponents compete at. And I cant comment on the exact standard as I’ve not seen a lot. But I trust the people who set them u

15:16

Which players is he most looking forward to working with?

We can’t single out players, even in a good sense because we never get forgiven. I’ve got opinions but I’m not going to speak about them.

For a start this press conference is all too much about me, and this isn’t a good thing for manager-player relations. Speaking as much as I have been just now is not good for the job I’ve got ahead of me.

15:15

What has he said so far?

It’s trying to communicate a style, a way of playing. That’s the key, conveying that style.

15:14

What about your contact with the players?

We said hello, greeted each other this morning.

15:14

How does he interpret the 'El Loco' nickname?

I’ve got a prepared answer I’ve had a while for this one.

I was first given it because maybe my style of giving replies in press conferences was different to most managers. I don’t know if you believe that?

15:12

What does he think about the Championship?

I’ve heard it’s the 6th or 7th best league in the world. Talking about the stadia - I’ve seen stadia that only hold 10,000 but they’re great. They add a bit more sauce to the occasion. They’re all good.

I guess in my experience, it’s been the classic stadium like Fulham, now you see the massive futuristic stadia.

What is key for me is I’ve got a real flavour for it and can’t wait to get started.

15:10

How is his English coming on?

I’ve got lots to thank my mother for, but she sent me to English classes for 15 years.

I will try. But I said the same in France and didn’t manage it.

15:09

On Messi

There’s nobody better placed than Messi to tell you how he feels. He has to pass an exam every time. He is where he is because he demonstates his quality at every point. I hope with all my strength he demonstates what he can do tomorrow.

All of us who love him are sending us his best wishes for tomorrow,

15:08

Bielsa brings the bants

This is the first time I have been in charge of a club for six months, are you worn out?

Bielsa asks the translator if he’s tiring him out yet. We’re almost 70 minutes in here.

15:07

On Argentina again

We can answer your question with this reply: Doing the rounds in the Argentina media is a start from Tata Martino about how hard it is to do the job because of the demands placed on them by the national media. I have 100% confidence in them and that’s not me hoping it will happen, that’s based on fact. I think the players will find a way out of this situation.

The management team have more than enough experience and knowledge to get them out of this situation so the players themselves and the coach need to feel the support of us and the fans. I think they need to feel the love and support of everyone. We support them and are right behind them.

I’m on board with what Martino has said but I’m probably not the best qualified person to be asking about this currently because back in 2002 I was in charge and we were knocked out in the group stages, which gives me doubts about whatever is said. To turn things around, I think the words of Martino sum up perfectly what Argentina need. Love and support.

15:02

On getting the Thorp Arch blueprints

My daughter told me not to talk about it. I’ve been told not to speak about building work. It’s a top class training centre that doesn’t need any tinkering with or alterations.

It might be a slight alteration here or there but nothing major.

Will the players be sleeping there?

Not thought of that yet - I might be taking that as a suggestion.

15:00

Bielsa on the Champions League days

Next up is a question about what he knows about the Champions League days and subsequent decline:

I think you always imagine being part of some success and that motivates you makes you emotional.

14:59

What influence did Ivan Bravo have?

A question about Bielsa’s coaching at the Inspire Academy and if that came into play here:

We all know, anyone involved in football knows the prestige Bravo has in the game, but I didn’t get in contract with him about coming here. I don’t want create any problem in the future for him but the president and Orta believed in me. And if it goes well it will be down to me and if it goes badly it will be down to them.

14:57

How important is the video analysis?

And what research have you done into the club and city?

Watching games with your analysing head on, the more matches you watch, it reduces the chance you might be wrong about an idea you had. It doesn’t mean you’re less likely to make a mistake, but it makes you think you haven’t made a mistake.

It’s invaluable in the game. It can tell you the No2 might play various positions across the back, right, left, middle or has filled in at centre half and midfield also.

The way the team is structure - for example, the length that a player runs, I could give you loads and loads more conclusions from watching this footage but it would be vain of me to do so.

What I can tell you is what happens when you do watch these 51 games - and I enjoyed it - certainly I see it as a professional obligation to look into thing which such detail. I have’t done it for the sake of it.

Whether I’m right or not, they have generated hundreds of certainties, I’ve got a lot of conclusions from it.

14:53

What needs to change from last year?

I don’t really like to evaluate or give opinions on games or seasons I didn;t take part in. Not fair to make comments on fellow managers, players, teams you’re not involved in.

14:52

What about the Elland Road atmosphere?

I know everything I could possibly know as a foreigner and what it means to supporters of this country.

I was given a list of instructions here of how I should speak and I think I’ve lost it.

It mentioned that Leeds United had the biggest attendances in the league last season, although VIlla had bigger crowds but I think it tipped over the figure because they were in the play-offs. I know because people have told me at the club, but I know for myself Leeds take huge amounts of support away and I know the team means an awful lot for the city.

In Bilbao, a place that has left a huge mark on my life, not the biggest mark on my life, because the team who leaves the biggest mark is your first club, Newell’s Old Boys in my case, but the phrase you head most walking around Bilbao is ‘I’m a season ticket holder’. It’s like a statement of what you are. A way of identifying yourself. There are lots of people of British descent living in the Bilbao area.

I’m really excited that’s it’s going to be the same here.

The fans support their home town in the same way. Working in football gives you a chance to see just how a city and group of fans can identify with each other. The fans become part of the club - that’s what I’ve been told here.

14:47

How important is Leeds' start to the season?

Next up is a question on Leeds’ start:

There are no easy games in football. We are naturally optimistic most of the time. For me, having my first game at home and to have the kind of belief and excitement in what’s going to be a sell-out crowd and make it like a ‘Premier League’ game, which makes me really excited.

14:45

MB on Lille

A question on Lille and his time in France:

Marseille was an unforgettable memory for me. Experiencing the Stade Velodrome on matchday was one of the most enjoyable experiences football can give you. ON a football front Lille was the saddest moments of my career. Not because of the place, the city is lovely and very welcoming and certainly not because of the footballers who I had huge amounts of time for. Fans would always get behind the side. And also the staff, you can’t split them out of the institution, they fit part of the texture of the club. But apart from all that, my self esteem as a manager more than any time during my career really suffered.

And not in the main because of the results on the field which if you were to look and take them seperately would be enough to damage my self esteem because I was removed from my position with the team in 19th place but I only played 20% of the games for the period which I was under contract.

14:41

And now a question in Spanish from a Bilbao journalist - which fortunately for your humble blogger who only has a French GCSE is being translated.

I’m not aware of any manager who expresses himself in such perfect and detailed language. Is this a major worry for you or a small worry?

And here’s Bielsa’s answer

The person who will be more interested in this reply is myself or the man who asked it. But I’m sorry, I can’t be brief.

I’m very conscious of the spoken or written word in getting your point across.

Basically, an artist of the written word, a Basque journalist called Balligara [no way I’ve spelt that right - sorry folks], I recommend you have a read.

Getting players to play and appealing to their emotions, getting your message across to players in management is all about that.

I think the biggest factor which gets players playing is emotion and if you speak sincerely, words and how you express yourself goes hand in hand with activating those football emotions.

So if you do struggle in a particular language, it’s unmistakable that you have a difficulty.

But there are other ways to show how you feel apart from the written word. Although I was working in Bilbao which shares a language but has a different culture to Spain, France is a different language and culture but I think I managed to get my point across in both those countries and found the essence which motivates players.

I think the tradition present in English football is a value which is guaranteed. Here, values and tradition in football are very consistent with each other. I think I’m confident enough to believe that messages will be conveyed and reach the players.

14:35

Was the delay in signing a contract due to budget issues or something else?

I’m very meticulous and careful on these processes. And having spoken with Victor Orta and the president I’ve found people who are very keen on taking a different direction in a sporting sense. I was very conscious that they weren’t going to promise something they couldn’t fulfil so I just wanted to describe everything carefully from the start so I wouldn’t surprise them down the line.

I’ve already tired the translate out.

14:33

What sort of budget do you have?

I’ve spoke long with the director of football and club president about what we need and what our aims are and we all agreed the three of us that these needs and objectives were to be highly exaggerated and we could find solutions.

But in terms of putting these decisions into practice, this is beyond my job spec and I’m extremely confident that these issues will be sorted out in a very positive way.

14:31

What do you make of Pep and Poch's praise for your methods?

And will these methods benefit the England team?

I don’t want to be accused of false modesty.

So false modesty is when you say something to make the listener draw something else from the conversation. I don’t like false modesty.

Guardiola is the best coach in the world and his ideas have been created by he himself.

In any of his teams, any traits, all I’ve ever seen are his own ideas.

As for Pochettino, he’s built his own career and he’s built up his own style which really is quite unique to him when you see his teams play.

I think these two guys might be references. I think the fact they are references to other people is more than that fact I’ve been references to them.

I’ve studied their style in depth. I’m not just been humble or modest.

14:28

Have you told any players they aren't needed?

I’ve seen all 51 games played last season, plus the friendlies in Asia. I’ve got opinions and made my mind up about all the players.

But I’ve not had that day to day contact with them that the club has already enjoyed.

In the same way I might get recommendations about new players, I’ve also been informed about the club’s position on how you evaluate the existing playing staff.

If the club have certain players they do not want to keep, they wouldn’t be players I’m trying to keep.

In terms of any player who might be leaving the club, I wouldn’t want to confuse the issue by giving an negative evaluation and description of the player, even though it might seem like that, so I’l go back to what I was saying before, the players I want to keep are the ones I want to give lots of playing time to.

The club have 15 players more than they need. And we still need 4 or 5 different positions on the field where we need to strengthen. I think moving forward in a football sense, the squad shouldn’t be too numerous, too many players who aren’t getting game time.

So there might be some departures so the amount of players isn’t too excessive.

Anybody leaving it will be more due to the fact I like a trimmed down, lean squad and the numbers in the squad so everyone is getting regular game time.

I can’t ignore the fact there are 46 games in this competition and the potential that 18-20 weeks where you play two games per week if we’ve made progress in the cup completions.

But we have one or two youngsters who could be available in this situation so that we can add those to the squad as a whole but we might need to add one or two more players.

These long replies, we go around the houses in our answers in order not to name any names.

14:21

Which players have you told are not good enough?

That is the ideal skillset. No player anywhere fits that bill.

What I will say is we’re trying to keep players who will get plenty of playing time. They will feature. They will get plenty of game time.

The question that you just asked me I’m convinced will be the prologue to another more complicated question.

14:20

What sort of players do you need to be successful?

I think a team is made up about of all the qualities that you see from a myriad of players.

Maybe I cold just give you a short summary of what an ‘ideal player’ is like:

Mental strength

Sufficient ability on the ball

Being bright enough to interpret different styles of play

Strong physically and brave

A competitive spirit

14:18

What will be your measure of success this season?

There are many ways to ask questions, but we find it impossible to answer. We cannot answer. I’ve kind of already answered that question in a similar way.

I think setting parameters and objectives in advance, I don’t think it’s the ideal message of support for the people who are the end users of the message, which are of course, our fans.

The club with the history of this club, they know how to measure success and failure at the end of the season.

I think that if you try to predict the future you’re becoming a demagogue rather than a football coach, so it’s not great to make statements of intent at this stage.

I much prefer to try and demonstrate and give examples rather than predict.

What about Argentina at the World Cup?

Onto the World Cup next. What does he make of Argentina’s struggles?

I think we’re going to see the best of Argentina from tomorrow onwards. I firmly believe in the quality of the players.

And in particular Messi’s leadership which I believe will come to the fore and be evident.

I’m convinced also by the knowledge of the backroom staff and the management team. Their wisdom and knowledge will show itself.

I think the two matches we’ve seen so far will be used as a grounding to put in a style of play that the national team wants to see.

They will move on in a positive way.

I’ve got a huge amount of faith in both the coach and the staff and also the players. From tomorrow you will see a different style of performance.

14:13

Do you believe you will get Leeds promoted?

The next question is about promotion.

It’s imprudent to promise something you cannot be certain about.

But at the same time it would be impossible not to dream about it.

To give sense to any project like this in a football sense, what drives you is having that desire, hope, belief that you carry out everything that everyone wants.

14:12

Any advice from Pep or Poch?

Have you spoken to Pep or Poch?

I’ve not had a physical conversation but I’m aware of what they say in the media all the time.

As you’re aware, those two guys are in love with everything about the English game.

So everything I’ve gleaned from the comments they have made has always been absolutely positive.

14:10Key Event

How many new signings do you need?

Transfers next - have you identified any players and how many do you want to bring in?

For the moment we’re not intending to bring too many new faces in.

From my point of view the club currently have many players on the books who should remain.

In terms of the transfer process I get names from Victor Orta, I then give my opinion on them. If we arrive at an agreement and are on the same page moving forward, that’s when the process starts.

14:08

What can the players and fans expect?

He’s asked how he can implement his style of football and what the players and fans can expect.

I think we almost have an obligation of managers to do what we think is right. If we don’t believe then we can’t do it ourselves.

I believe that the players have enough ability about them to take on board what I tell them and can put this into practice on the field.

As regards what the fans can expect, I think they want the protagonists out there on the field, rather than talking about what might happen.

I want people to take the game by the scruff of the neck, want to win the game.

The fans will see the kind of football where the ball is on the floor. As we work the ball forward we will keep it on the ground.

They will see loyalty, faithfulness from the players in trying to do what we tell them out on the field.

This is the aim at this stage.

It’s all about learning how to deal with situations where you aren’t on top.

14:04

Why did he decide to join Leeds?

He’s first asked why Leeds and what they did to convince him to join.

It was a case of me convincing myself, no one had to convince me.

I was convinced by the strength of Leeds United as a club and institution and the possibilities of Leeds in a sporting sense.

I looked from a sporting point of view. Those things came about together to help me make my choice.

14:02

Here he is...

Andrea Radrizzani leads Marcelo Bielsa out.

The chairman wishes everyone well - dropping in a joke about the Costa del Yorkshire.

‘Marcelo had other options, but he has chased the dream of bringing Leeds United back to the Premier League.’


13:57

Plenty of people here...

This press conference could last a while.


13:54

Five minutes to go...

You get the impression that Bielsa is a punctual man, so get comfy chaps and chapesses, as we’ll be kicking off shortly.

Marcelo Bielsa used his unveiling as Leeds United manager to give supporters an insight into the extreme lengths to which he has gone to try to get the club back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Bielsa, once described by Pep Guardiola as “the best coach in the world”, said on his first public appearance as Leeds head coach that he had watched all 51 of their matches from last season – and two post-season friendlies – since Andrea Radrizzani, the club’s owner, approached him in the hope that he would take up the position vacated by Paul Heckingbottom on June 1.

Like Guardiola, Bielsa is a big believer in video analysis and research. He turned up to his press conference… ( innlogging )

Leeds United too big a job to turn down for meticulous Marcelo Bielsa

New Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa said he had been drawn to the job by the “strength of the club and the institution” and promised to keep faith with his philosophy in the Championship after being formally unveiled at Elland Road.


Speaking for the first time since agreeing a two-year contract with Leeds, Bielsa vowed to build a team who would take games “by the scuff of the neck” and said he had taken his first managerial post in England with the dream of ending United’s 14-year Premier League exile.


Bielsa, the former Argentina and Chile boss, was appointed by United more than a week ago but flew in from South America on Saturday and met the club’s players at Thorp Arch for the first time this morning.


The legendary 62-year-old was United’s ambitious choice to replace Paul Heckingbottom and accepted the position after more than two weeks of intense negotiations over his contract.

“It was a case of me convincing myself,” said Bielsa, speaking through a translator at a press conference this afternoon. “No-one had to convince me. I was convinced by the strength of Leeds United as a club and an institution, and on the field in a sporting sense. I looked at things from a football point of view.


“I’m very meticulous and careful in these processes. Having spoken with Victor Orta and the president (Andrea Radrizzani) I found two people very keen to look at the direction of the club in a sporting sense. I was very conscious they weren’t going to promise something that they couldn’t fulfil so I wanted to describe every detail about me from the word go so that they would not be surprised by anything.”

It’s imprudent to promise something when there are so many uncertainties, but at the same time not to be impossible dreaming about that happening.

Marcelo Bielsa
Bielsa’s is renowned as one of the world’s most innovative coaches and Leeds made him the highest-paid coach in their history by offering him a salary in excess of £2m.

The appointment was a response to the club’s 13th-placed finish in the Championship last season, Radrizzani’s first as club owner, and Bielsa vowed to tackle the division with his traditional brand of expansive, attacking football.


“We almost have an obligation as managers to put into place what we believe in,” he said. “We cannot have obligations in other people to believe it if we don’t believe in it ourselves.

“I believe that the players have enough ability to take on board what I’m saying and to take on board my beliefs and actions on the field

“As regards what the fans can expect, I think they want protagonists on the field rather than just talking about what might happen I want people to take the game by the scruff of the neck - time with possession on the ball rather than fighting to win it back.”

Asked about his expectation of promotion next season, Bielsa said: “I think if you are trying to predict the future you are almost becoming a demagogue rather than a football coach. It’s better to be reasonable and measured and not give sweeping predictions.


“It’s imprudent to promise something you cannot be totally certain of. But at the same time, it would be impossible not to be dreaming about that. What drives you is having the desire, hope and belief that you can carry out what everyone wants.”

Bielsa indicated that as many as 15 players could leave Leeds this season and said he wanted to see the squad strengthened in “four or five positions”.

The Argentinian, however, gave the current squad a vote of confidence, saying: “For the moment we’re not intending to bring too many new faces in. From my point of view the club have got plenty of players I feel should remain here, who we should keep.”

«His five-strong backroom team at Elland Road is set to include a number of long-time allies, including Argentinian coaches Pablo Quiroga and Diego Flores and Chilian Diego Reyes, all of whom have worked with Bielsa at other clubs. Salim Lamrani, who acted as Bielsa’s translator at Lille, is also expected to join United.

Sitat
Salim Lamrani - translator
Descirbed by Le Monde as 'the most overqualified man in Ligue 1' during Bielsa's time at Lille, Lamrani is as fascinating a character as you'd expect Marcelo Bielsa to associate himself with.
Lamrani has no background in either football or translation, but is instead an academic, specialising in relations between Cuba and the USA. A prolific author with a number of published books to his name, Lamrani has also spoken in Cuba, England, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Boliva, and the USA alongside the likes of Noam Chomsky, Kev Livingstone and Howard Zinn.
 
A multilingual Marseille fan, Lamrani had written extensively about Bielsa and his admiration for the coach during his time at the Velodrome and would chose to leave his position as a lecturer at the University of Reunion to work with Bielsa at Lille after the pair had previous met in South America and clicked.

Bielsa is extremely guarded in his relationship with the media, refusing to do one-on-one interviews, with this quote from Romain Laplanche's 2017 biography on Bielsa, The Mystery Bielsa, explain the importance of having a trusted translator: "It is no wonder that he is appealing to him. Bielsa's language is very precise and precise, it is cultivated and has a particular rhetoric.

 
"I think he wants this rhetoric to be respected. When Bielsa speaks to the press, he considers that he speaks to supporters through the media, so he wants to be clear that his speech is not distorted."
As well as being at Bielsa's side for every press conference during his spell at Lille, Lamraini also acts as a translator for Bielsa and non-Spanish speaking players.

YEP

His appearance at Elland Road drew journalists from Lille and Bilbao, and the gathering might have been bigger had the World Cup not taken much of the English press corps to Russia. Bielsa is a constant source of fascination, a man who was photographed at his desk at Thorp Arch surrounded by a pencil, Tippex, a set square, a pile of dog-eared books and a cup of mate tea. Not an iPhone or a tablet in sight, as befits a coach who has never owned a mobile phone. At the end of his opening round of comments, all one hour and 20 minutes of them, only a little light had been shed on the fun to come. It is how Bielsa prefers to work: away from the legend and in the shade.

Leste egentlig ikke så mye ut av pressekonferansen når det gjelder forsterkninger. Synes han nevnte at vi må forsterke fem posisjoner, samtidig som stallen er altfor stor. Innbiller meg de uansett er svært forsiktig med å love for mye spillere inn, det er i seg selv prisdrivende. Ellers er det vel liten tvil om grundigheten (sett 51 kamper), selv kampene fra Myanmar hadde han sett.

Liker det jeg leser om Bielsas maniske forhold til analyse. Det kommer i alle fall ikke til å skorte på «game plan». Jeg er mer bekymret for språket - det skal være litt av en tolk som formidler det fotballfaglige til spillerne.

Kombinasjonen «for stor stall» og «forsterke i fem posisjoner» høres ut som en storrengjøring. Vi kan kanskje regne med en spansk- og engelsktalende kaptein som blir en av Bielsas faglige talerør i gruppa? Hernandez er et alternativ, men blir ikke overrasket om det kommer inn noen nye som skal fylle denne rollen. Drømmer om en Mascherano som ser muligheten for å spille fast et par år til og starte overgangen til en trenerkarriere med å lære av en mester.

Liker budskapet til Bielsa.

Her skal stallen strammes opp, og unødvendig stallfyll og kostnadsdrivere skal bort.
Det er betryggende.
Har vært altfor mye kvantitet på bekostning av kvalitet de siste årene.

Aner at pisken svinges ganske kraftig i tiden som kommer, ift hvem som er "in" og "out".

At han allerede har sett samtlige kamper fra sist sesong, lover meget godt.

Gleder meg til fortsettelsen.

Kanskje til og med noen spillere kan selges og generere noen ekstra pund i transferkassa. Berardi, Anita, Phillips, Ekuban, O’Kane - det kan tenkes at disse og evt. andre kan generere et par-tre mill. pund til sammen, i tillegg til å frigjøre en del lønnsmidler. Med maks uttelling på spillerlogistikk har Bielsa en av divisjonens fem beste transferkasser.

Lufc selv har plukket ut disse høydepunktene fra pressekonferansen:

MARCELO BIELSA PRESS CONFERENCE FIVE KEY POINTS

On Monday new Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa was unveiled to the media, here we look at five key points:

On style of play

“The fans want the protagonists out there on the field.

“I want people to take the game by the scruff of the neck, not being afraid of the ball, and spending time in possession.

“They will see a kind of football where the ball is kept on the floor and as we work the ball forward, we will keep it on the ground.

“They will see loyalty and faithfulness from the players as they try to implement what we do in training out on the field.”

On the squad

“The players I want to keep are the players I can guarantee game time to.

“We think the club, generally, have got 15 players- you might consider to be an excessive amount, more than we need and there are probably four or five positions on the field where we need to strengthen.

“Moving forward in a football sense, the squad shouldn’t be too numerous, we shouldn’t have too many players in the squad who aren’t getting game time.

“There might be some departures so the number of players in the squad isn’t too excessive, I like to have a trimmed down, lean squad so everyone is getting game time.”

On getting his messages across

“I am very conscious of the importance of the spoken and written word in getting your message across.

“Getting players to play and appealing to players’ emotions and inspiring them to play - I think getting your message across as a manager is all about that.

“The biggest factor that gets players playing is emotion and if you speak sincerely, words and how you express yourself goes hand-in-hand in activating those football emotions.”

On the Championship start

“There are no easy games in football, we never think about an easy game as a manager and we are naturally optimistic most of the time.

“For me, having my first game at home and to have the kind of belief and excitement that it’s going to be a sell-out crowd will make it almost like a Premier League game, that for me is something to be really excited about and something that really stimulates me.”

On sleeping at Thorp Arch

“I have not been thinking about that, we’ve not made our mind up to do but I’ll take that as a suggestion.”

Jeg skal ihvertfall ikke være negativ utover. Bielsa er så langt unna hva jeg hadde turt å håpe på. Dette er et skup av dimensjoner! Endelig har vi fått en respektert og fryktet trener. Jeg håper for Guds skyld at alle rundt ham gjør hva han sier, og at han får arbeidsro. Det kommer til å bli mediatrykk på Leeds fra første spark på ballen.

WELCOME BACK: Leeds United's players take part in pre-season training at Thorp Arch..' Picture: Jonathan Gawthorpe.

 Leeds United’s players have not been asked to sleep at their training ground, as Lille’s were invited to by Marcelo Bielsa 12 months ago, but they are rapidly clocking up the hours in the first week of pre-season at Thorp Arch. The clutch of senior professionals put to work by Bielsa were on the grass for long laps around 10am yesterday morning and drove home after 7pm, at the end of a third session of training. Bielsa’s programme will keep them in each other’s pockets until the summer gives way to competitive football.

The Argentinian, who was appointed as head coach almost a fortnight ago and began the job in earnest on Monday, has divided United’s first-team and development-squad players into three specific groups:
1. a central core he is intent on working with,
2. a blend of Under-23s and senior names who might yet feature next season
3. and a collection of others who are surplus to requirements.


A total of 12 players were in the main group yesterday, led by last season’s club captain, Liam Cooper. Some of the absences spoke for themselves: Pontus Jansson is away at the World Cup with Sweden and Ronaldo Vieira was given additional time off after England Under-20 duty, though the midfielder has reported back regardless and watched the early running session yesterday.

Tyler Roberts, having failed to play once due a cracked shin bone suffered after his £2m move from West Brom in January, was elsewhere in the gym having done extensive fitness work before pre-season began. Vurnon Anita is still recovering from ankle surgery carried out on him in April.

Alongside Cooper were Adam Forshaw, Kemar Roofe, Kalvin Phillips, Tom Pearce, Luke Ayling, Samuel Saiz, Pablo Hernandez, Stuart Dallas, Gjanni Alioski and Gaetano Berardi. Bailey Peacock-Farrell was the only goalkeeper involved with Leeds still in the midst of talks about the potential signing of Angus Gunn from Manchester City and David Stockdale from Birmingham.

Other absentees were on the brink of moving elsewhere. Lewie Coyle joined Fleetwood Town on a half-season loan yesterday and Pawel Cibicki is close to quitting Leeds on a temporary basis.Serie B club Brescia want Marcus Antonsson and the Swede has no future at Elland Road despite an effective spell with Blackburn Rovers in League One last term.

More notable by their omission were Republic of Ireland international Eunan O’Kane, strikers Caleb Ekuban and Jay-Roy Grot and winger Hadi Sacko. Andy Lonergan, United’s most experienced keeper, was also missing along with Luke Murphy, the largely forgotten midfielder who still has 12 months left on the long contract he signed in 2015.

Three others – Laurens De Bock, Yosuke Ideguchi and Mateusz Klich – had been photographed on Monday training with Leeds’ Under-23s and appear to fall into the clutch of ‘maybes’ who Bielsa is assessing. United have not confirmed publicly which players are available for transfer but Bielsa asked the club to make the surplus crowd aware of their fate before he flew to England last weekend. Some, like Cibicki, are well on the way to finding other clubs. The forward, who United signed from Malmo 10 months ago, enjoyed a brief purple patch around Christmas but finished last season training with the club’s youngsters.

Bielsa is well on the way to establishing what he called a “trimmed-down squad” but United’s senior training group as yet shows no new faces.

Picture: Bruce Rollinson Negotiations which, in some cases, have run from the earliest days of the transfer window are still to bring about the club’s first signing and tomorrow marks six weeks before the EFL’s deadline for permanent moves passes. Loan deals, however, are permitted until the traditional August 31 cut-off under new rules agreed by EFL clubs.

What Leeds fans can expect from Pep Guardiola’s idol, Marcelo Bielsa: the crazy one

He’s influenced some of the best managers in football, yet his revolutionary methods have divided opinion. Thore Haugstad on the highs and lows of a maverick manager

One thing that might have made Marcelo Bielsa think twice about joining Leeds is the Christmas fixtures. If some Latin players dislike spending their festive holiday chasing a ball through snow and gale, something similar might be true of Latin coaches, accustomed as they are to winter breaks. Yet Bielsa might have to adapt for a different reason.

When once asked how he would spend his Christmas, the Argentine outlined a daily routine of two hours' exercise and 14 hours of video analysis. That’s tough to keep up when you have games to play. Presumably, he will now reduce his hours in the video room to approximately 10.

Not that he’ll like it; compromise has never been a trait of his. Part of what has made the 62-year-old a cult hero is his commitment to doing things his way. At Marseille, he’d jump into a blue tracksuit to either patrol the touchline or sit on a cool box; once, he sat down on a cup of burning hot coffee.


At Athletic Bilbao, he’d take exactly 13 steps every time he crossed the technical area; he refused to explain why. He drew chalk marks on his shoes to show the players how to kick the ball, then walked around with the marks for days. They call him El Loco, ‘The Crazy One’, although Athletic forward Iker Muniain was once asked if Bielsa really is as mad as people say. “No,” said Muniain. “He’s madder.”

Yet Bielsa is no joke figure. Fans tend to love him and illustrious tacticians have copied him, including Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino. When studying to become a coach, Guardiola took an 11-hour flight to Buenos Aires and then drove 185 miles to Rosario just to talk to Bielsa. Guardiola calls him the best coach in the world, which may seem odd to those who don't know El Loco well. In 30 years, he has hardly won anything.

Revolution

Bielsa comes from Rosario, the hometown of Che Guevara, Lionel Messi and Cesar Luis Menotti, the coach who led Argentina to the 1978 World Cup title. Born into a family of politicians and lawyers, Bielsa immediately dedicated his capacity for hard work to football. He’d collect videos and subscribe to magazines whenever he wasn't playing himself. He never made it as a player and, retiring at 25, took charge of the Buenos Aires university team instead, scouting 3,000 players before picking a squad of 20.


Two years later, Bielsa joined the youth academy of Newell’s Old Boys: one of the two big teams in Rosario, and the one for which Messi would later play as a kid. Bielsa felt the club was missing out on talents in the dusty corners of Argentine football, but he was afraid of flying. Resolving to discover them anyway, he embarked on a national scouting tour, clocking up five thousand miles in a Fiat 147.

He took over the senior team in 1990, and that’s when the revolution began. Bielsa had fallen in love with the Ajax school of the 1970s, in which the players press relentlessly and push up their defence to minimise the space available to the opponent. Yet Bielsa didn’t want the tempo to drop once the ball had been won, so as soon as Newell’s had it, they’d play it forward as fast as possible. The play went at full speed, all the time. How would the players possibly have the energy to keep it up?

The Bielsa school

Bielsa tried to solve that question by training the players hard. He drilled in an ambitious 4-3-3 system that would transform into a 3-4-3. On the training ground, he practised synchronised movements that the players were supposed to repeat in games. He locked himself away for days studying the opposition, then handed out dossiers to his players. The end product was unlike anything Argentine football had seen.

Newell’s stormed to national league titles in 1991 and 1992. At their best they were spectacular, attacking without stop and running their rivals into the ground. Theorists applauded too, because Bielsa had managed to combine the work of the two schools of Argentine football: those of Menotti and Carlos Bilardo.


Menotti, the chain-smoking hero of the 1978 triumph, was the romantic who loved to attack and left the creativity to the inspiration of his players. Bilardo, who delivered the 1986 World Cup title, favoured a defensive set-up and based his work on meticulous planning and video analysis. Bielsa adopted the adventurous ways of Menotti and the analytical eye of Bilardo. His ideas were so innovative that the players could hardly avoid learning a great deal.

Part of what turned so many of his players into coaches was Bielsa’s insistence that they’d think for themselves. He’d ask them to read newspapers and to write up dossiers on their own. Among the players were Tata Martino, who went on to coach both Barcelona and Argentina; Eduardo Berizzo, who has led Celta Vigo and Sevilla; and Pochettino. The focus was always the process, not the result. In one game, Pochettino scored a header, only to receive an earful from Bielsa for having been in the wrong position.

In that way, Bielsa didn't only become a tactical pioneer, but an influential educator as well. Yet the intensity of his work proved taxing. In 1992, Newell’s reached the final of the Copa Libertadores, the South American version of the Champions League, but lost to Sao Paulo on penalties. The players were exhausted and so was Bielsa, who resigned.

Chilean hero

Six years later, Bielsa won another Argentine league title with Velez Sarsfield. That propelled him to take charge of a superb Argentina side. They went to the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea as favourites, Bielsa filling his suitcase with 2,000 videos – yet they crashed out in the group stage. Their manager stayed on to lead the under-23s to Olympic gold in Athens in 2004, before bowing out.


His next gig was the Chilean national team. Having not reached the World Cup in 12 years, La Roja made it to South Africa in 2010, where they lost in the last 16 to Brazil. Bielsa won the hearts of a nation, not just for reaching the tournament but for his exciting style of play. Though he resigned a year later over a clash with the incoming FA president, the groundwork for success had been laid. When Chile won the Copa America in 2015 and 2016, many credited Bielsa.

That spell was his hitherto last with national teams. In 2011, Bielsa took charge of Athletic Bilbao and immediately led them to the finals in the Copa del Rey and the Europa League. For a while they were the most exciting team in Spain, playing Manchester United off the park en route to the Europa League final. Yet the style of play again proved draining. They lost both finals, then suffered their worst league start in 32 years to hamper a second campaign that would prove to be Bielsa’s last.

Suspended and sacked

A year later, Bielsa moved on to Marseille, where he again started well. At the halfway stage, they topped Ligue 1. “The workouts are intense but enlightening, technically and tactically,” said striker Andre-Pierre Gignac. “He knows everything to the smallest detail. I glanced at his training schedules; there are hundreds of them and every one featured games he analysed. He taught us a vibrant, real type of football.”

But Marseille also crumbled and ended up 14 points off top spot. When they lost the first game of the next season, Bielsa resigned, citing a dispute over his contract. Such fallouts with directors and presidents are another Bielsa trend: he also confronted senior figures at Athletic over a delay to construction work at the training ground. When he joined Lazio in 2016, he accused the club of not having signed the players they'd promised him and resigned after two days.

When Bielsa tried to take Lille into the Champions League last summer, he didn't even start well. They were second from bottom after 13 league games, at which point the club suspended him. They duly dismissed him in December.

So it is against this backdrop that Bielsa now joins Leeds. At his first press conference, he said he had watched all of their 51 games from last season, plus two post-season friendlies in Myanmar. What the players might have made of him is anyone’s guess, though a hint may be taken from Benjamin Mendy, who played for Bielsa at Marseille.

“When he addressed the players the first time, he didn’t smile once,” Mendy recalled in a recent piece for The Players’ Tribune. “But when he talked about strategy, you could see the madness coming out. You could see his passion. You could see that he lived for football, for every detail. After the meeting, a team-mate looked at me and said: ‘He is not normal, this one.’ He was right. Bielsa is not normal. Who wants normal?”

Ved denne ansettelsen ble det, så vidt jeg oppfattet, ikke satt noe mål for tabellplassering for kommende sesong. Det ble vel spurt om det på pressekonferansen.  Det ble sagt at langsiktig mål er å rykke opp til PL.

Om Bielsa eller Rad står bak dette vet jeg ikke, men det virker litt rart å ikke ha et klart mål for kommende sesong. Er målet play off eller er det ikke?

De har vært tydelig på at de har et klart definert mål internt og at de ikke vil ut med det eksternt.

Med alle godordene Bielsa har fått fra de beste managerne i Premier League står vi nok langt oppe på ønskelisten til talentene i skorpa hos storklubbene.

The club does need the money. We are lossmaking and although P&L losses are within limits we need to replace cash lost every year. Our funding model includes some player sales.

Agree Bielsa decides who goes unless player wants out. Some surprises coming!

Når skal vi slutte å selge våre beste spillere?

Tidligere har økonomien vært skral og tvunget klubben til å selge. Nå har vi ikke den unnskyldningen lenger.

Gode spillere har evnen til å tilpasse seg nye/ andre systemer. Det tror jeg Vieira også har.

Han kommer til å bli en hit i hvilken som helst klubb i England. Potensialet er så definitivt tilstede.

Det var ingen spillere som irriterte meg mer i fjor enn Vieira. Han var bedritent dårlig. Riktignok en liten oppsving mot slutten. Klarer ikke jelt å se hvorfor det skal være en så stor tabbe å selge han. Hva er Vieira sine største styrker? Sliter litt med å finne ut av det.

Hvis han ikke passer inn i spillestilen, hvorfor beholde han?  Hvis Bielsa spiller sitt vante system, er det vel en plass Vieira kan brukes, og der TROR JEG han er godt bak i køa. Baker, Forshaw og Phillips. I tilegg har vi Rey, som Bielsa har sagt han liker. Hvis han også rangeres foran Vieirs, så begynner å bli en del foran..

Men tar dette som et løst rykte inntil han evt selges. Ingenting hadde vært bedre enn om Ronaldo Vieira virkelig hadde blomstret under Bielsa og storspilt! Men selges han, stoler jeg på klubben.

Etter alle årene dine her inne og så har du ikke fåttmed deg Thornton??? :o

Han har i årevis 'tolket' halvårsregnskapene til klubben og analysert/nyansert den økonomiske situasjonen. Nå som han er pensjonist er han enda mer aktiv med økonomisk blikk på klubben. Til og med Radrizzani svarte ham (positivt) på en tweet for noen uker siden der han egentlig var positiv til klubbens drift for tiden...

The club does need the money. We are lossmaking and although P&L losses are within limits we need to replace cash lost every year. Our funding model includes some player sales.

Agree Bielsa decides who goes unless player wants out. Some surprises coming!

Så vi må selge noe dyrt? Jeg forsto lite av begge disse.
Trykk på linken og les alle tweetene. :)  Bakgrunnen er nok Vieirasalg-ryktene...

Et salg av Vieira er i så fall Bielsas første feil.
Ikke hvis han absolutt ikke passer inn i nytt system, stoler på Bielsa enn så lenge.

Det var ingen spillere som irriterte meg mer i fjor enn Vieira. Han var bedritent dårlig. Riktignok en liten oppsving mot slutten. Klarer ikke jelt å se hvorfor det skal være en så stor tabbe å selge han. Hva er Vieira sine største styrker? Sliter litt med å finne ut av det.

Hvis han ikke passer inn i spillestilen, hvorfor beholde han?  Hvis Bielsa spiller sitt vante system, er det vel en plass Vieira kan brukes, og der TROR JEG han er godt bak i køa. Baker, Forshaw og Phillips. I tilegg har vi Rey, som Bielsa har sagt han liker. Hvis han også rangeres foran Vieirs, så begynner å bli en del foran..

Men tar dette som et løst rykte inntil han evt selges. Ingenting hadde vært bedre enn om Ronaldo Vieira virkelig hadde blomstret under Bielsa og storspilt! Men selges han, stoler jeg på klubben.

Han hadde ingen stor sesong nå sist, men vi har da vel ikke så kort minne at vi ikke husker hvordan han spilte sesongen 2016/2017?

Absolutt ikke, og jeg ønsker absolutt at han lykkes. Lukter litt som med Byram, knallgod debutsesong og sliter med å følge opp. Om han tar steget og blir en god CC ++ spiller vil tiden vise. Jeg er usikker.

Makan til tullprat. Rey, Phillips og Baker foran Vieira. Nå har jeg hørt det å.

Ikke vet jeg. Men selges han så er det jo tydeligvis flere som mener det.

Med en sentral midtbanespiller så tror jeg det blir tøft for Ronaldo å få spilletid. Hvilke andre roller kan han evt spille?
 Får vi en positiv seseong så spiller det ingen rolle for meg om det er med eller uten Ronaldo.  :)

https://jonmackenzie.com/2018/06/30/marcelo-bielsas-inaugural-press-conference-transcribed/

Om vurderingen av spillere:

I don’t really like to evaluate or give opinions on situations when they refer to games and season that I didn’t personally take part in. I don’t think it’s fair to judge fellow managers, footballers, clubs from a distance when you haven’t been involved in those situations yourself. I’d rather excuse myself from that reply rather than give you an empty answer.

Her hører jeg at spillerne får en sjanse til å bevise at de passer inn i Bielsas filosofi. Når det gjelder Vieira håper jeg at dette betyr at han ikke feller dom over en unggutt basert på en dårlig sesong på et lag som slet tungt. Unggutter dømmes på potensial, og Vieiras potensial bedømmes best med å se helt andre kamper enn de han spilte i fjor.

Hvis det er en stjerne som tilbys andre klubber, har jeg mer tro på at det er Saiz enn Vieira. Hvis han ser kampene til Saiz i fjor ser han en individualist som skaper mye på egen hånd, men som sliter med å passe inn i et kollektiv. Nå var det ikke allverdens til kollektiv å passe inn i i fjor, men Saiz har hatt en tendens til å senke det offensive spillet, i tillegg til at han ikke har imponert defensivt.

Selv håper jeg at ingen av disse er på vei ut...

Leeds news: Marcelo Bielsa salary revealed and it's more than Gareth Southgate - EXCLUSIVE

Leeds United news: Marcelo Bielsa is being paid more than Gareth Southgate
NEW Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa is being paid more in the Championship than England boss Gareth Southgate.

Starsport can reveal Bielsa signed a staggering £6m-a-year contract at the Yorkshire club.

Bielsa penned a two-year deal worth £12m that is more than double what any of his Championship rivals are getting paid.

The deal works out at £3m-a-season after tax and is £500k more than what Southgate earns from the FA.

Details of the lucrative deal will stun fans, not least because Bielsa is 62 and had been out of work for six months before Leeds came calling.

He lost his job in December when Lille axed him following a run of just three wins in 13 games.

Matej Vydra (Derby)
Abel Hernandez (Free agent - previously Hull)
Angus Gunn (Manchester City)
Felipe Caicedo (Lazio)
Baghdad Bounedjah (Al Saad)

“Leeds news: Marcelo Bielsa salary revealed and it's more than Gareth Southgate - EXCLUSIVE”
Bielsa took charge of the fallen giants in June when owner Andrea Radrizzani sacked Paul Heckingbottom.

Heckingbottom, who earned just £250,000 at Leeds, lasted just four months at the helm.

Bielsa became Leeds' primary target even before Heckingbottom’s dismissal, with managing director Angus Kinnear saying the club wanted a more experienced boss.

Bielsa has previously managed clubs in his native Argentina, Spain and France.

It will be the fifth successive season that Leeds have started a campaign with a new manager.

Marcelo Bielsa was fired from Lille after a run of just three wins in 13 games
He said the Leeds job was ‘impossible to turn down’ - and now it is not difficult to see why.

Leeds have not been in the top flight of English football since 2004 and have had an incredible 12 different managers since 2012.

News that Italian businessman Radrizzani is willing to invest so much in Bielsa will pile even more pressure on the Argentinean to win promotion this season.

Long suffering supporters are no strangers to such financial largesse taking place at Elland Road.

Under the regime of former chairman Peter Ridsdale Leeds went bankrupt after running up debts of more than £120m.

Mye fokus på lønna til en av øyrikets mest profilerte trenere. Kan skape et feilaktig inntrykk at det er veldig mye penger tilgjengelig i klubben vår. Frykter at det i sin tur skaper urealistiske forventninger hos agenter og selgende klubber. Kan være en delårsak til at det synes å «lægge» i forhandlingene med Vydra og Hernandez m fl.

Tror ikke med hånda på hjerte at VI har råd til og cashe ut spillere til 10 mill £ +....pluss lønn.
Det er nok en del regnestykker som blir lagt i disse dager, låneopsjoner og Bielsas bekjentskaper
benyttes for d det er verdt... :o

Tar gjerne 2-3 freske ungguter fra Shitty som kan forsterke 11veren vår/troppen - men det er klart at
"egne" spillere er og foretrekke, må ikke gå på bekostning av unggutta vi har...som kan utvikles videre.

Jobbes på spreng...det koker ned til ££££ i de fleste avtaler...MEN når man ser at Forest`allerede har signert
8-åtte- spillere, så må det være muligheter....og man blir jo litt rastløs... ;)

Leeds United: Bielsa’s methods are creating a real buzz at Thorp Arch – Kinnear

Phil Hay
Published: 20:00 Thursday 05 July 2018
 Marcelo Bielsa.
Marcelo Bielsa.
There have been, and will continue to be, casualties of Marcelo Bielsa’s marriage with Leeds United but his on-going cull of players is nothing like a bloodbath. Bielsa was frank with the club about who should depart and several of those have already gone but there were, in his words, “plenty of players on the books I believe we should keep.”


Leeds made the Argentinian – famously particular and demanding with his expectations – assurances about the transfer market but Bielsa promised in turn that he would bring more out of the squad he was inheriting, irrespective of so many damning verdicts on their performance in the Championship last season. Bielsa does not use the term ‘marginal gains’ but Leeds, who to date have made just one new signing, expect to see steep improvement amongst a group who failed to finish in the top half of the division.


Pre-season is almost two weeks old and as they have been doing from the first day, the players on Bielsa’s to-keep list are arriving at Thorp Arch at 9am and leaving after 7pm. On certain nights they have roomed in a nearby hotel, cutting out the drive to and from Wetherby.


Angus Kinnear, United’s managing director and a former employee at Arsenal, said he saw shades of Arsene Wenger in Bielsa’s insistence on managing so much of his squad’s preparation.

“All of the physical training appears to be in context,” Kinnear told the YEP. “Rather than running for the sake of running, everything’s with the ball, everything’s done in game scenarios. The players are receiving a lot more individual coaching than they have previously.


“Anybody who followed Leeds last season will have seen that the players didn’t play to 100 per cent of their potential. I know there’s a massive interest about who we’ll bring in but I also think we’ve got players with fantastic potential if they’re playing at 100 per cent, rather than 70 per cent. That could be the difference between last season and doing something significant.

Leeds United managing director Angus Kinnear.

“I know people get frustrated about the speed of the progress we make (in the transfer market) but the key for us is that we make the right decisions and that they’re fully considered. Marcelo had clear areas that he wanted to strengthen and where he saw weaknesses but also, it makes sense for him to spend some time with the squad as he fine-tunes his requirements.”

Leeds began pre-season training with three distinct groups: a main collection of players who Bielsa had earmarked to retain, another group of Under-23s and senior footballers he was undecided on and a final collection of professionals who he asked United’s board to move on. Those deemed surplus to requirements were given an extra week away and time to find new clubs. Several, including Pawel Cibicki, Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan, moved to cut their ties quickly.


In the interim, the other two training groups have been fluid. Kinnear revealed that a handful of academy players, including Jamie Shackleton, Ryan Edmondson and Jack Clarke, were already training with Bielsa’s main crop and Yosuke Ideguchi – the Japan international who finished last season on loan at Cultural Leonesa, a spell which cost him his World Cup spot – has also made the step up in the past week.

“We have some hugely talented young players and one of the other differences is an immediate integration of the young players into working with the first team,” said Kinnear, talking at the launch of United’s new club store at the Trinity shopping centre in Leeds yesterday. “The philosophy clearly is if you’re good enough, you’re old enough.

Marcelo’s very diligent, with huge attention to detail. He’s an expert in getting players to quickly adapt to his philosophy. There’s a buzz about the place.

Angus Kinnear
“Marcelo’s very diligent, with huge attention to detail and very demanding in terms of his requirements, not only for the players but the rest of the staff and the training ground set-up. The last week has been a big learning curve in terms of how he feels Thorp Arch is going to work. What you can see is that he’s an expert in getting players to quickly adapt to his philosophy. There’s a buzz about the place.

“We’re really satisfied. He has a clear philosophy and a clear gravitas. He’s not learning on the job.


“He’s been there and done it and there’s very much an Arsene Wenger approach in the breadth of his influence: how does the canteen operate, how does the gym operate, how do the leisure areas work, where are the players parking, precisely what happens on a matchday.

“He hasn’t talked about the theory of marginal gains but he’s looking at every area of the club and how we can get better. We’re a week in but there’s clearly a huge impact and a big difference.”

Dette viser vel at Orta gjorde en elendig jobb på transfer markedet sist sesong. Virker som om rollene er snudd nå og at det er el loco som styrer det neste av sjåvet på hvem som kommer inn til a-laget ihvertfall.

Håper alle suger til seg det de kan av lærdom nå av bielsa. Virker som han har litt peiling på det han driver med foreløpig.

Nei, hvorfor det. Det er ingen som vet hva som er planene til Bielsa og klubben. Det eneste som er klart er at det er for stor stall (15 stk) Det er vel det som skal slankes.
Jeg gir en lang fan i hva som skrives i tabloidpresse om hvor mange spillere og hvilke som skal inn.
Jeg ser at noen er veldig opphengt i enkelte spillere som Leeds ikke klarte å signere. Ingen vet om Leeds var ute etter disse spillerene i utgangspunktet.
Noen henger seg veldig opp i tabloidpressen uten å sjekke fakta. Og det er disse som roper høyest....

Klubben har en plan, dette er jeg ikke bekymret over. Det jobbes med å fjerne daukjøtt og det jobbes med nye spillere. Det er mange klubber som ikke er i nærheten av å være ferdig. Dette er ikke enestående for Leeds.

Vydra og Maddison er sterkt linket nå, + en keeper. Da mangler vi en spiss og stopper. Er dem fra samme hylle som de to førstnevnte så blir dette bra. Ja, jeg mener at Maddison er en kanonsignering om vi få han  :)

Vi blir ikke bedre bare av å få ut daukjøttet. Bielsa skal klare å sette en 11-er til seriestart, og jeg tviler på at plan A er å vente så lenge som mulig med å få inn de spillerne man ønsker. Håper (og tror) det kommer en del avklaringer denne uken.

Jo, vi blir bedre av det. I fjor var det for mange spillere på trening og alt for mange som ikke var i nærheten av å ta en plass på laget. Det gikk ut over kvaliteten på treninger, som igjen forplanter seg til kamp. Dette var jo hovedgrunnen til at Bielsa sa at 15 mann må ut.

Hvis vi forsterker med nye gode spillere som hever den restrerende troppen så vil vi bli enda bedre  :)

Selvfølgelig er ikke plan A å vente til seriestart, men det er ikke uvanlig at signeringer skjer et godt stykke ut i august. Gode spillere tilpasser seg raskt. Samtidig har jeg lest at Bielsa vanligvis ikke trenger all verdens av tid på å selge inn sine ideer. Dem er på treningsfeltet fra ni om morgnen til syv halv åtte på kvelden, så tipper det jobbes greit med å drille roller og formasjon.

Håper også at det skjer mye denne uka. Veldig spent på hva vi signerer.

Håper han evner det via tolk også.

Det som er nytt i år er at vinduet stenger ved seriestart. Derfor haster det mer enn normalt og således er det mer bekymringsfullt enn vanlig at vi kun har gjort én a-lagssignering til nå. Når det er sagt så har jeg fortsatt trua og jeg regner med de har kontroll. Det blir en sesong til i ingenmannsland om vi ikke får dreis på overgangsvinduet denne sommeren.

Det utgjør vel ikke store forskjellen om han bruker tolk tror jeg.

Spørs hvordan man ser det.. I og med at siste signering må være i boks ved seriestart, så får vi spilt inn et lag raskere enn tidligere da vi har signert spillere helt frem til 31 august ;D

Ikke veldig mange klubber stiller til seriestart med inndrillet start 11er. Stort sett alle klubber signerer spillere godt ut i august. I år er det VM, det påvirker transfermarkedet. De store klubbene er ikke ferdig, knapt startet handlingen. Mange spillere vil bli tilgjenglige den siste måneden av vinduet.

Virker som flere tror at dette er så typisk Leeds, men hadde vært mer unormalt hvis vi hadde vært ferdig handlet på denne tiden.

3-4 spillere kan singeres på 2-3 dager. Det kjenner vi til. Riktige spillere inn teller aller mest når daukjøtt er ryddet bort. Mye avhenger når spillere blir tilgjengelig.  Spillere kanskje selges til Leeds når andre dealer er i boks. Timing.

Bielsa har en tydelig filosofi og som gammel landslagssjef trenger han neppe veldig lang tid på å selge inn systemet. Men det må da være en fordel å få øvd skikkelig på spillestil og relasjoner og da begynner det å haste. Det er under en måned til seriestart.

Ã… ville betale 11 millioner pund og ukeslønn på 30 000 pund i måneden for en enkelt spiller, vil jeg si er en drastisk endring sammenlignet med foregående år. Vi har absolutt penger, men Vydra har enten blitt for grådig, eller så har andre klubber kommet på banen. Sikkert agenten som pusher på.

Tenker Bielsa har kontroll, jeg.

Han har ikke hatt denne prosessen med Leeds, for så å se at eventuelle targets ryker en etter en. Konkrete navn som "glipper" ser jeg på som typisk silly season og medieskapte spekulasjoner, eventuelt agenter som prøver å snakke opp sine spillere.

Hvor sterkt vi/han ønsket/ønsker Vydra, vil historien vise.
Men, jeg synes også det er meeeeget friskt av oss å eventuelt handle på 11 mill/30k ukelønn-nivå. Ikke akkurat "der" vi har vært de siste årene...
Vi skal uansett ikke overse det faktum at tynning av stallen frigjør en betydelig mengde pund som også gjør det mulig å putte noen ekstra slanter i lønnsposen til noen få, istedetfor policyen de siste årene med å handle inn store volum squadplayers som trekker penger og stort sett bare har vært unødig stallfyll som har belastet lønnsbudsjettet unødig.

Jeg tror Bielsa er meget grundig i sine analyser, og beholder troen på at han bringer inn de spillerne laget trenger for å forsterkes på de riktige plasser.

Det kommer garantert inn spillere som vil sørge for at vi får et slagkraftig lag. Tipper at flere av de vi har også kan heve seg til å bli vesentlig bedre enn i fjor. Ikke sikkert Bielsa føler han trenger så mange likevel?

Tre uker til første seriekamp. Gode spillere tilpasser seg raskt, og nye signeringer kommer.  Alle lag kommer litt rustne til seriestart uten å ha spilt inn en fast 11er. Hovedkjernen av spillergruppa får nok løpsmønster, presshøyde og all taktikk tredd inn med teskje hver eneste dag nå i sommer. At det skal være så mye bekymring for at 3-4 spillere, Pontus og en keeper ikke er med på det skjønner jeg ikke  :)

Tror du virkelig at dem henter Bielsa uten en videre plan?

Noen blir sikkert skuffet da dem har litt urealistiske forventninger til hvilke spillere vi kan hente. Ender vi opp med Blackman, Maddison, Hugill f.eks så mener jeg det er bra. I tilegg bør vel enda en spiss og en stopper inn. Men alt avhenger nok av hva Bielsa ser i de som er der fra før.

Jeg personlig tror Phillips vil heve seg betraktelig og bli mye mer stabil. Det er mange i dagens lag som har potensiale, det har dem vist tidligere. Det handler om å få det ut hver eneste gang. Det er her Bielsa visstnok skal være bra!

Hvorfor gå rundt å bekymre seg for ting man ikke får gjort noe med? Stoler du på Bielsa, så skal det ikke være noe å bekymre seg for. Han som avgjør hva vi trenger inn og hvem som skal ut.

Tenker Bielsa har kontroll, jeg.

Han har ikke hatt denne prosessen med Leeds, for så å se at eventuelle targets ryker en etter en. Konkrete navn som "glipper" ser jeg på som typisk silly season og medieskapte spekulasjoner, eventuelt agenter som prøver å snakke opp sine spillere.

Hvor sterkt vi/han ønsket/ønsker Vydra, vil historien vise.
Men, jeg synes også det er meeeeget friskt av oss å eventuelt handle på 11 mill/30k ukelønn-nivå. Ikke akkurat "der" vi har vært de siste årene...
Vi skal uansett ikke overse det faktum at tynning av stallen frigjør en betydelig mengde pund som også gjør det mulig å putte noen ekstra slanter i lønnsposen til noen få, istedetfor policyen de siste årene med å handle inn store volum squadplayers som trekker penger og stort sett bare har vært unødig stallfyll som har belastet lønnsbudsjettet unødig.

Jeg tror Bielsa er meget grundig i sine analyser, og beholder troen på at han bringer inn de spillerne laget trenger for å forsterkes på de riktige plasser.
Jeg er helt sikker på at Bielsa har kontroll på det faglige, men er bekymret for at det ikke kommer inn 2 spisser, midtbanesjef,stopper og keeper. Regner med at Bielsa ser etter slike spillere, og som er vesentlig bedre enn de vi har. Håper dog hans navn og rykte og kontakter fremskaffer gode spillere fra andre ligaer. Håper ikke Orta har for mye i utvelgelsen av spillere....

Dem har vel uttalt at det fungerer på samme måte som med TC og PH. Orta og teamet setter opp en prioritert liste sammen med Bielsa og teamet. Dette er ikke noe solo løp av noen.

Det kommer garantert inn spillere som vil sørge for at vi får et slagkraftig lag. Tipper at flere av de vi har også kan heve seg til å bli vesentlig bedre enn i fjor. Ikke sikkert Bielsa føler han trenger så mange likevel?

Relativt lenge til sereistart. Skjønner ikke det stresset med at vi MÃ… bli ferdig handlet ASAP Pronte.
Jeg skjønner ikke at det går an å være så ubekymret....

Tre uker til første seriekamp. Gode spillere tilpasser seg raskt, og nye signeringer kommer.  Alle lag kommer litt rustne til seriestart uten å ha spilt inn en fast 11er. Hovedkjernen av spillergruppa får nok løpsmønster, presshøyde og all taktikk tredd inn med teskje hver eneste dag nå i sommer. At det skal være så mye bekymring for at 3-4 spillere, Pontus og en keeper ikke er med på det skjønner jeg ikke  :)

Tror du virkelig at dem henter Bielsa uten en videre plan?

Noen blir sikkert skuffet da dem har litt urealistiske forventninger til hvilke spillere vi kan hente. Ender vi opp med Blackman, Maddison, Hugill f.eks så mener jeg det er bra. I tilegg bør vel enda en spiss og en stopper inn. Men alt avhenger nok av hva Bielsa ser i de som er der fra før.

Jeg personlig tror Phillips vil heve seg betraktelig og bli mye mer stabil. Det er mange i dagens lag som har potensiale, det har dem vist tidligere. Det handler om å få det ut hver eneste gang. Det er her Bielsa visstnok skal være bra!

Absolutt. Men det som har skjedd under Ridsdale, Bates og Cellino kan ikke brukes mot Radrizani & co. Han har i det minste vært ærlig på at han har en femårsplan. Så selv om man er misfornøyd med tidsaspektet, så er det uansett for tidlig å konkludere om han lykkes. Jeg er bare glad det er noen som evner å tenke langsiktig, da jeg tror mangelen på det er en av grunnene til alle nedturene. Det gjelder ikke bare det sportslige, men alt annet rundt klubben,

Med bakgrunn i nettopp det at det er en plan og at det blir ansatt en såpass kapasitet som Bielsa, da sliter jeg med å lage meg bekymreringer basert på alle nedturene vi har opplevd tidligere.

....og vi er sikre på at han blir til seriestart?

Tror det er større sjans for at Bale signerer enn at Bielsa reiser.

Hvilke indikasjoner tyder på at han er misfornøyd?

Sånn jeg forstod det som skjedde i Lazio, så var det at han ble lovet en transferpott. Det som ikke ble fortalt var at han måtte selge de beste spillerne for å få den potten med penger.

Ut i fra det som ble sagt når han ble presentert hos oss så var det full åpenhet om rammer og økonomi mellom Leeds og Bielsa. Rads er nok ikke så dum at han ansetter en så anerkjent leder basert på løgner, ihvertfall ikke etter episoden i Lazio.

Jeg har ikke klokketro uansett. Jeg håper og ønsker. Hvorfor gidde å svartmale før det virkelig er behov?

Tabellplassering? Jeg vil ha fremgang og langsiktighet. Kontinuitet på ledersiden og i sentrallinja og kjernetroppen. Blir vi topp 6 er jeg strålende fornøyd.

Om signeringene kommer i kveld eller 3 august tror jeg har veldig lite å si. Sikkert litt bedre med jo før jo bedre, ihvertfall om man medregner støyen rundt på supporterne som venter.Men om de kommer 3 august så påvirker ikke det utfallet av sesongen på noen måte heller.

Tror nok hovedgrunnen til utålmodigheten rundt omkring dreier seg mest om egen nysgjerrighet på hvem vi signerer enn at det dreier seg om fiasko eller suksess neste sesong fordi nye spillere kommer for sent!

Fulham rykket opp mef 5-6 lånesigneringer. Flere av den kom i januar. Dem lå laangt nede etter 15 kamper. Så at laget ikke er samspilt til serieåpningen (noe ingen lag er) skal påvirke hvordan det ender etter 46 kamper klarer jeg ikke å skjønne.

Jeg har trua på Bielsa og jeg har trua på at han kan heve nivået til flere av dagens spillere.Jeg har trua på at han ser hva vi trenger. Jeg har trua på at kommunikasjonen er så god at de spilletypene Bielsa trenger blir hentet.

Mulig det går til helvete også, men det får jeg ta når det eventuelt skjer.

Syns heller det er sunn skepsis, siden vi bare sender spillere på dør for tiden. Det tynnes i rekkene. Det er vel heller slik at midlene ikke helt strekker til mht. de det satses på.

Enig. Det bør komme 3-5 reelle forsterkninger før sesongstart. Hvis ikke, er vi i beste fall utfordrer til en PO-plass den kommende sesongen.

Hehe. Du er absolutt ikke av de som svartmaler. Men de finnes  :)

Jeg er også spent og nysgjerrig på hva og hvordan dem tenker. Men jeg vet at Bielsa ikke er hentet uten en troverdig gjennomførbar plan. Bielsa hadde ikke takket ja uten at han var tilfreds med Leeds og Rads sine planer. Det holder for meg  :)

Det tynnes jo fordi vi hadde latterlig mange spillere. Teller vi etter nå så er det ikke voldsomt tynt, i antall hvertfall. Vi trenger nok fortsatt mer kvalitet for å kjempe der oppe.

Syntes det er helt greit å si nei når det blir fantasi lønninger og spillere, les agenter prøver seg. Jeg tror det er viktig og holde seg innenfor det budsjettet og grensene man har satt. Står respekt av det. Jo mer vi tjener, jo mer lønn gir vi. Lønnstaket er jo hevet en del siden i fjor.

Jeg har tro på en meget god sesong. Så god at jeg har satset 3000kr på at Leeds faktisk vinner divisjonen (12 i odds på Betsson, sikker investering). Dette er basert på 1) at vi går inn i sesongen med en glimrende head coach som har mer makt over det sportslige enn sine forgjengere, 2) vi har penger å handle gode spillere for, og 3) klubben evner å få transferlogistikken på plass.

Som alle andre er jeg bekymret for det som ser ut som stillstand på transferfronten. Lykkes vi ikke her blir det nok en grå sesong. Men jeg velger, som alltid, å gå inn i sesongen med full tro på at «dette er året». Heller å glede seg med positive forventninger så lenge det varer enn å forvente dritt og få dritt bekreftet.

Det virker som klubben ikke lar seg lokke inn i raske, dyre kjøp med eventyrlige lønninger. Noe som i seg selv knuser den klart moderate lønnsstrukturen vår. Strategien er jeg helt enig i. En Hernandez ute nesten hele forrige sesong, og en Vydra som ikke er verdt i nærheten av det han krever, bør vi holde oss langt unna. Vi har forhåpentligvis lært av Lucky-Luke tendensene i fjor sommer.  Sitt i ro i båten til de riktige spillerne er tilgjengelige. Av og til er pris og kvalitet ikke i nærheten av å samsvare. Bare se på Cardiff.

Synes dette blir litt selvmotsigende. Du skriver at Fulham lå laangt nede etter 15 kamper og det beviser vel at et samspilt lag fra starten av ER viktig? For Fulhams del gikk det bra i år fordi de hadde en fantastisk sluttspurt og et fantastisk godt lag. Synes uansett ikke man skal "budsjettere" med å ligge langt nede etter 15 kamper fordi man KAN redde seg inn med en sinnsyk sluttspurt. Poengene man tar i de første kampene eller like mye verdt som de man tar på slutten:)

Jeg er av den oppfatning at jo raskere ting faller på plass, jo bedre kommer sesongen til å gå. Synes Leeds i alt for stor grad har hentet inn spillere i siste liten og også etter at sesongen har startet i de senere år. Men på søndag er VM over og da regner jeg med Radrizzani tar på seg arbeidshanskene og signerer 3-4 spillere i neste uke. Da er vi i rute igjen!

Jeg er enig med begge. Det aller beste er å ha alle spillere på plass to uker før seriestart. Men vi vet at det handles i andre klubber tett opp mot seriestart. Slike handler frigjør spillere som kan ende i Leeds til en riktig pris. Det er en lang sesong og jeg vil si at det er verdt å vente på riktig spillere til riktig pris selv om de kommer tett opp mot seriestart.

Alle poeng er selvfølgelig like mye verdt. 

CC er 46 kamper, uhyre jevnt og alle slår alle. Mye handler om å vinne de "riktige" kampene på "riktig" tidspunkt. Det sammen med å unngå lange formdupper, som garantert kommer ila en sesong. Noe man ser hvert år er når lag klarer 7-8 kamper på rad med seiere mot slutten, så kan det løfte lag fra 14-15 plass til PO med god margin.

Hvis jeg får velge så tar jeg heller Wolves metoden og ligger på topp hele sesongen :)

En bra start med tabelltopp etter 10 kamper spiller ingen rolle hvis man kollapser i slutten av November og ender som nummer 13 i mai..

Fulham hentet to spillere av betydning forrige sommer, så dem var vel så samspilte det er mulig å være til en serieåpning. Fra Januar og ut når dem lånte inn en bønsj så ble det sving på sakene og til slutt rykket dem opp. Gikk dem samspilte inn i februar? Neppe, men gode spillere tilpasser seg  :)

Hadde vi hatt full tropp og alle nye vært på plass 1 juli så hadde det sikkert vært fint. Men at det automatisk skal gi oss en bedre poengfangst i starten enn om spillerne ankommer 3 august? Jeg tror ikke det. Etter 46 kamper. Absolutt ikke.

Poenget er at det ikke er noen fasit. Ã… sitte å svartmale situasjonen nå blir håpløst. Man kan finne eksempler på alle scenarioer hvis man vil.

Svartmalt er kanskje ikke ordet. Men som jeg skrev. Stallen pr. 13.07.2018 er ikke avgjørende for hvordan sesongen starter og ihvertfall ikke ender :)

Jeg stoler på at Bielsa er hentet med en plan. Kan vel ikke være så dumme at dem ikke har en plan?

Som sagt, tar jeg feil så tar jeg smellen det medfører der og da  :)

Tenk hvis klubben henter Hugill, Maddison, Foyth og Blackman på mandag, og Vydra og Abel H kommer krypende dagen før seriestart. I mellomtiden har vi lånt Wilson og signert en stopper. Tenk så mye frustrasjon man kunne spart seg for  ;)

Agenter vil ha de beste avtalene for spillerne og seg selv.
Da må man ofte ha tålmodighet når man handler under et strikt budsjett.
Man må jo forholde seg til markedet.
Løsner dette her. Kommer blackmann inn idag også faller flere brikker på plass fra neste tirsdag/onsdag.
Bielsa har fått jobbet i ro og mak på feltet så vi får se noen overraskelser når første pre seson kamp spilles

Kanskje 14-16 års frustrasjon ikke legges død pga ansettelsen av et hittil ubeskrevet blad på trenersiden i engelsk sammenheng?

Slik eg ser på det;
Dersom ein skal handle, så er det ein fordel at det skjer - gitt at det skjer på riktig måte (riktig sum, spiller etc) - uansett korleis ein snur og vendar på det ein fordel at det skjer heller før ein seinare. Kall ein spade for ein spade.

Eg har vel heller komt til å håpe at Bielsa har funne potensiale i U23-troppen samt A-laget som me ikkje har sett til no. Etter det eg har lest har Bielsa sterke meiningar kring pre-season, og meinar denne perioden er særs viktig for resten av sesongen.

Så, dersom det er meininga å handle, må Orta sjå til å få fingeren ut. Handling eller ikkje handling kan fort utvikle seg til ein god eller ond sirkel i neste steg i overgangsvinduet.

English football is on the rise – we owe a debt of gratitude to Marcelo Bielsa | Liam Rosenior

Liam Rosenior
 
With players like Harry Winks, Dele Alli, John Stones, Raheem Sterling and 17-year-old Phil Foden (centre), Tottenham and Manchester City are leading an English revival of technical, dynamic football.

The philosophies of ‘El Loco’ have influenced Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino, and English football is reaping the benefit of their coaching

I’m so excited for English football right now. Whether it’s watching Tottenham dismantle Real Madrid inspired by a group of young fearless Englishmen, or Manchester City playing a brand of football never witnessed before in the Premier League with Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker and John Stones at the forefront of their play, we are on the verge of seeing our young players being able to compete at the highest level – and in a World Cup year.

In addition, we are the world title holders at under-20 and under-17 level, something we should all be proud of, and we have a rising star in Phil Foden, who not only won player of the Under-17 World Cup but is close to breaking into a star-studded Manchester City squad at an extremely young age.

Watching Tottenham and City – as well as the England Under-17s winning the World Cup with technical, intense, dynamic football – got me thinking about the debt of gratitude we owe to a man whose Lille team are in the relegation zone in Ligue 1 and who has never coached or managed a team in England.


You see, the likes of Harry Kane, Kieran Trippier, Harry Winks, Eric Dier and the outstanding Dele Alli playing creative, high-tempo, successful football under Mauricio Pochettino to beat the European champions took me back to a carbon copy performance in March 2012 when an Athletic Bilbao team full of young players displayed near-perfect football while defeating Manchester United at Old Trafford. For anyone who hasn’t seen that game, it was as close to footballing perfection as you can get and the man in charge of Bilbao was Marcelo Bielsa.

I believe the style of football Pep Guardiola and Pochettino are playing and getting results with, utilising high speed, technical quality and footballing beauty, is the stuff of dreams for fans of their respective clubs and for everyone who loves the game. Not only are they winning and playing outstanding football, we’re seeing the development of young (English) players increase week on week because their footballing philosophies are conducive to the individual tactical, mental and technical improvement of the players they are working with.

When these managers – along with Diego Simeone and many other successful coaches – are asked about the biggest influence on their footballing principles, that same man pops up every time: Marcelo Bielsa.


Known as “El Loco” in his native Argentina, he is obsessed with football, not only with winning but developing a playing style that enables teams to be successful while improving and pushing players to reach levels even they didn’t think they were capable of. If we relate this to Pochettino at Spurs, I honestly believe Kane or Alli wouldn’t be reaching the heights they are now if it wasn’t for the learning environment and philosophy of play Pochettino has devised at their club, with many of the ideas taken from Bielsa.

Furthermore, if we look at the performances of Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne and Luke Shaw at Southampton under him, Pochettino has already had a positive influence on English football. His playing style is of high physical intensity, involving expressive, offensive football with extreme detail based on positional play – deploying his players in optimal positions to firstly hurt teams in possession but also to win possession back as quickly and as close to the opposition’s goal as possible for fast counterattacks. Guardiola’s methodology is very similar and when you hear them speak about their playing identities they are adamant their ideas must be “learned” by players and “taught” by coaches – something that should be obvious but is sadly lacking in football coaching when the process is often overlooked because results are the be-all and end-all.

There’s no better place for Foden to learn his trade than under Guardiola. He is a young player with all of the tools to succeed at the very highest level and has a coach who is well placed to coax the best out of him. Just look at the improvement of Sterling this season in terms of timings of runs, body position when receiving possession and decision making in front of goal. There’s no doubt the improvements have been the result of Guardiola’s coaching.


This modus operandi has stemmed from Bielsa and I’m sure Guardiola and Pochettino would agree he was a key part of their football education and if these young English players keep performing and improving under these principles – thus elevating our national team to new heights – then I for one will be raising a glass in appreciation to “El Loco”.

Adam Clarke

So put Blackman, Pontus, Viera, Baker, Pearce in that team and it starts to look a lot better. Clearly need more up front though and out wide.



Mike

The #lufc squad, in its current state, won’t go up or down. So it seems mental to pay a manager £40k a week to do this when a far cheaper option would achieve the same result. It’s for this reason that I still think we’ll make a flurry of signings at some point & have a proper go

Interessant. Bielsa er tydeligvis på jakt etter en midtstopper med pasningsfot til å starte angrep og gå gjennom pressledd. Usikker på om Phillips er det riktige valget, men Bielsa vet vel hva han gjør.

Enig med HB.

Leeds har selv satt seg i en situasjon er der optimismen ikke er helt på topp før sesongen pga manglende transfer aktivitet. Men så var det vel mange optimister i fjor da vi hentet flere spillere i uken...

Men Leeds savner både en signering som skaper litt entusiasme før sesongen, Bartley ville kunne skapt det, en spiss folk kjenner til som dem vi har vært linket med i sommer ville gjort det samme. Så er det en utfordring at vi ikke er overbevist om at vi har fått den keeperen vi kan stole på i 46 kamper, samt en Baker som ikke lykkes i Boro i fjor....

At klubben IKKE tror at de trenger en eller helst to stoppere kan jeg ikke skjønne i det hele tatt. Det og ny keeper var det aller viktigste fra forrige sesong.

Gleder meg til dagens kamp, spent på hvem som er med

50 000 i uka er ikke «markedslønn»! Det er Road to ruin hvis man ikke rykker opp. Håper ingen CC klubber er dumme nok til å gå inn på slike avtaler.

Nå kan det da også se ut til at 50 høvdinger i uka  så langt  IKKE er markedslønn dvs at agenten til Vydra har lagt lista for høyt! Ihvertfall når det gjelder salg til CC klubber...

Håpar ikkje klubben går til dei steg å tilby 50k i veka for ein som har hatt éin god sesong i Championship.. eg er óg so langt skuffa over overgangsvindauget. Kanskje me tjener på edruelegheit over tid - sette eit eksempel ovanfor agentane og deira lønnskrav.. håpar berre andre klubbar óg følgjer ein liknande tankegang. Heller tvilsomt, dog.

Hva vi tjener på er vanskelig å spå. Om en god nok spiller, produserer gode nok resultater så er 50k helt innafor. Men så er det ingen garantier, derfor er det logisk at en er påpasselig.

Men nå har voi jo en tropp som er veldig ubalansert, der det mangler spillere på viktige posisjoner. Når vi ansatte Bielsa så må det være lov å ha høyere forventinger til hva vi har oppnådd hittil i vinduet, selv om vi vet at det fortsatt kan skje mye på kort tid.

Jeg er i foreløpig både skuffet over hva som har kommet inn og hva som har gått ut. Satser på at Okane og Anita kan flytte på seg kjapt så fom kan fri gi 10-20 tusen av lønnsforpliktelsene våre.

Enig med Josefzoon. Men Hugill har vi bare vært linket til på ryktebørsen. Uansett: det er en spiller vi absolutt burde vært og luktet på!

Frykter noen panikkjøp den kommende uka eller to. Og da gjerne fra utlandet.

Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe impressed by Marcelo Bielsa’s all-round influence

LEEDS UNITED’S Kemar Roofe has hailed the influence of Marcelo Bielsa, revealing the new Whites head coach is conducting lessons in life as well as football.


Bielsa is six weeks into his new role with the former Argentina boss set to oversee his final pre-season friendly tomorrow afternoon when the Whites take on Spanish Segunda Division outfit Las Palmas at Elland Road.


United will then begin their new Championship campaign with a home clash against title favourites Stoke City the following Sunday and Roofe has given a glowing assessment of Bielsa’s six weeks in charge.


The forward readily admits that the Argentinian has lived up to his billing of providing a hard pre-season, but the Whites player has also revealed there has been more to Bielsa than just football.

“It’s been very tough,” admitted Roofe, assessing this summer’s pre-season. “But good at the same time. He hasn’t just run us into the ground with people complaining, it’s the total opposite.


“It’s well thought out and there’s a reason behind everything and we are learning every day.”

He hasn’t just run us into the ground with people complaining, it’s the total opposite. It’s well thought out and there’s a reason behind everything and we are learning every day.

Kemar Roofe
Asked to provide an idea of the issues Bielsa had been working on, Roofe revealed: “Everything, on and off the pitch. You would be surprised at what we have been doing.

“We’d think we’d be going into a meeting about football and it could be about something nothing to do with football, just as a life lesson. He obviously wants good players but he wants us to be good people as well.


“Obviously he wants us to reflect him and he has come across as that kind of person as well. And it just breeds a better team as well.”

Roofe again filled various positions during what his second full season at Leeds last term with the former Oxford United player used as a lone striker, a winger and a no 10.

The 25-year-old eventually proved United’s leading scorer last season with 14 goals – four more than Pierre-Michel Lasogga who has now returned to parent club Hamburg.

Leeds remain on the hunt for a new no 9 with the squad number left vacant with the Whites having been pursuing Derby County striker Matej Vydra as their main target this summer.


Roofe, though, says it does not matter to him whether or not he is first choice striker.

“It’s just like any other season,” said Roofe. “I am going to play for Leeds United and give 100 per cent to help the team to win.

“I am always excited. Even if I start elsewhere I’d still be excited – as long as I am playing and helping the team to win.”

Looking ahead to Sunday’s friendly against Las Palmas and the season opener against Stoke, Roofe said: “I’m very excited, especially to get back at Elland Road and in front of the fans as well.

“It will be a good test on Sunday and then it will lead us into the Stoke game as well especially on TV. I think everyone is excited.”

LEEDS UNITED’S Kemar Roofe has hailed the influence of Marcelo Bielsa, revealing the new Whites head coach is conducting lessons in life as well as football.


Bielsa is six weeks into his new role with the former Argentina boss set to oversee his final pre-season friendly tomorrow afternoon when the Whites take on Spanish Segunda Division outfit Las Palmas at Elland Road.


United will then begin their new Championship campaign with a home clash against title favourites Stoke City the following Sunday and Roofe has given a glowing assessment of Bielsa’s six weeks in charge.


The forward readily admits that the Argentinian has lived up to his billing of providing a hard pre-season, but the Whites player has also revealed there has been more to Bielsa than just football.

“It’s been very tough,” admitted Roofe, assessing this summer’s pre-season. “But good at the same time. He hasn’t just run us into the ground with people complaining, it’s the total opposite.


“It’s well thought out and there’s a reason behind everything and we are learning every day.”

Kemar Roofe
Asked to provide an idea of the issues Bielsa had been working on, Roofe revealed: “Everything, on and off the pitch. You would be surprised at what we have been doing.

“We’d think we’d be going into a meeting about football and it could be about something nothing to do with football, just as a life lesson. He obviously wants good players but he wants us to be good people as well.


“Obviously he wants us to reflect him and he has come across as that kind of person as well. And it just breeds a better team as well.”

Roofe again filled various positions during what his second full season at Leeds last term with the former Oxford United player used as a lone striker, a winger and a no 10.

The 25-year-old eventually proved United’s leading scorer last season with 14 goals – four more than Pierre-Michel Lasogga who has now returned to parent club Hamburg.

Leeds remain on the hunt for a new no 9 with the squad number left vacant with the Whites having been pursuing Derby County striker Matej Vydra as their main target this summer.


Roofe, though, says it does not matter to him whether or not he is first choice striker.

“It’s just like any other season,” said Roofe. “I am going to play for Leeds United and give 100 per cent to help the team to win.

“I am always excited. Even if I start elsewhere I’d still be excited – as long as I am playing and helping the team to win.”

Looking ahead to Sunday’s friendly against Las Palmas and the season opener against Stoke, Roofe said: “I’m very excited, especially to get back at Elland Road and in front of the fans as well.

“It will be a good test on Sunday and then it will lead us into the Stoke game as well especially on TV. I think everyone is excited.”

"Nah, the manager's shite. Horrible lad, no experience, rubbish ideas. In total a f**king trainwreck" - Said no-one ever.

Klart spillerne er positive og prøver å si det riktige. Alt annet vil jo bety mannefall på tribunene, utfrysning fra laget med mer.  ;D

Ezgjan Alioski comments on Leeds United's Marcelo Bielsa

Ezgjan Alioski comments on Leeds United's Marcelo Bielsa and his methods.

Marseille's Argentinian head coach Marcelo Bielsa looks on during the French L1 football match between Girondins de Bordeaux (FCGB) and Marseille (OM) on April 12, 2015 at the Chaban-...

Ezgjan Alioski has revealed to BBC Radio Leeds that no Leeds United players have a verbal relationship with head coach Marcelo Bielsa as of yet.

Leeds made a major statement by hiring the 62-year-old as their new boss last month following Paul Heckingbottom's sacking.

Bielsa, who has coached Argentina's national team, Lazio and Athletic Bilbao to name but a few, is not fluent in English and therefore direction communication with his players is an issue.

Asked on BBC Radio Leeds what Bielsa expects of him, Alioski, who cost United £3.2 million last summer, laughed and said: "I don't speak too much with him. Not only me but it's all players.

"You don't speak individually with him, so you must do the stuff that [his staff] tell you and try to do the best that he expects from you."

Will 'El Loco' really be the man to end the crazy days at Leeds?

By Joe Bernstein for The Mail on Sunday 21:30 28 Jul 2018, updated 00:34 29 Jul 2018

(https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/28/19/4EA6B6F600000578-0-image-a-125_1532803790727.jpg)

An embarrassing mess first half, pinging the ball around like Billy Bremner and Johnny Giles in the second. Any Leeds United fan who watched their team trail 3-0 at Oxford last Tuesday and fight back before losing 4-3 is fully braced for the rollercoaster ride under Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds have gone through 15 managers - including two in caretaker charge — since losing their status in 2004 but none like Bielsa, the most colourful and renowned coach in the Championship, whose side kick off against on Sunday.

(https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/28/19/4EA6ADD100000578-6002687-image-a-107_1532802752911.jpg)

The 63-year-old Argentine is a visionary credited with pioneering pressing football and 3-4-3. He took Argentina and Chile to World Cups, beat Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford with Athletic Bilbao and has been a major influence on , Diego Simeone and Mauricio Pochettino.

Marcelo Bielsa is nicknamed 'El Loco' due to his unorthodox methods and coaching style
On the downside, he is known as El Loco (crazy person) because of his obsessive intensity, once threatened supporters with a hand grenade and has a recent history of career instability. His previous job at Lille lasted 13 matches; before that he left Lazio after two days.

Putting South America's most passionate coach in charge of English football's perennial sleeping giant is the brainchild of Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani. It is a potent mix and revived interest in a club tranquillised by previous incumbents Dave Hockaday, Neil Redfearn and Paul Heckingbottom.

'All eyes in the Championship are on Leeds again and that's the way it should be,' says Eddie Gray, who was part of the great Don Revie side of the Sixties and Seventies.

Ryan Edmondsen and his team-mates started pre-season with three training sessions a day
'There is a huge buzz in the city. When you hire a manager with Bielsa's reputation, expectation levels rise. It doesn't matter he's not worked in England. Football around the world is played with the same thing - a ball. It's knowledge that counts and getting the players to buy in.'

Leeds players already know what Bielsa is about. They started pre-season with three hard training sessions a day, from the gymnasium at nine in the morning until seven at night. Instead of sneaking off home in the afternoon, the whole squad have had to stay in a nearby hotel for two hours' rest before their final workout.

The demands will not surprise Spurs manager Pochettino, who was discovered by Bielsa at Newell's Old Boys in Argentina and later played for him at Espanyol, where he made the mistake of asking on a scorchingly hot day when a training session would finish.

Bielsa provides the discipline that clubs need to succeed, according to Mauricio Pochettino
'At the end, a furious Bielsa called me over. 'That's the last thing I expected from you. It confirmed to me just what you've become.'

'He laid into me and I cried. I went home in tears because I felt so embarrassed. Everything he said was right,' wrote Pochettino in a biography which was published last season.

Gray, who has seen Leeds slide from one financial, ownership or managerial disaster to another for more than a decade, welcomes a strong boss at his club.

'Every club needs discipline and Bielsa at his level will provide that,' he says. 'You won't have a more disciplined club than Manchester City and they won the league. Sir Alex Ferguson was disciplined. It comes from the manager.'

The manager's tactics and high-energy football means all eyes are on Leeds for next season

The biggest conundrum is whether a Leeds team who finished 13th last season are good enough to take on board Bielsa's tactics and high-energy football.

They have won only two games in pre-season, against Forest Green and another crazy 4-3 against non-League Guiseley, ahead of Sunday's final warm-up with Las Palmas.

After early setbacks in the transfer window, Bielsa on Saturday signed Wolves wing-back Barry Douglas so he can play a three-at-the-back formation. Leeds have also agreed a fee of £6.75million for Middlesbrough striker Patrick Bamford after talks with Derby over a move for Matej Vydra stalled.

Bielsa's reputation persuaded Chelsea to send two former FA Youth Cup winners to Elland Road on loan, goalkeeper Jamal Blackman and midfielder Lewis Baker.

Bielsa signed Wolves wing-back Barry Douglas so Leeds can play with three at the back
'I had great managers at Chelsea like Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho and everyone there talked about Bielsa and the amazing work he's done,' says Blackman, who will be urged to play out from the back.

'Jordan Pickford showed at the World Cup it's important for goalkeepers to have the confidence to use both feet. It helps having a manager that backs you, and allows you to make a mistake.'

Baker, who had an unhappy time under Bielsa's tactical opposite Tony Pulis at Middlesbrough last season, vows: 'By the time the first game comes against Stoke, we will be ready for it. What makes the top managers stand out is the way they approach games, down to the smallest details. I saw it at Chelsea, too.'

Bielsa has an interpreter but speaks better English than he will give away on camera. His style is to give players clear instructions like a teacher, rather than by ranting.

(https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/28/19/4EA6C33200000578-6002687-image-a-118_1532803681148.jpg)

Bielsa makes use of an interpreter but speaks better English than he gives away on camera

In his first game, at Forest Green, he asked midfielder Jamie Shackleton to try out as a wing-back. To help the 18-year-old, Bielsa dispatched a coach to the far side of the pitch to encourage and advise.

Insiders say Bielsa has been active alongside sporting director Victor Orta in assessing what Leeds need next in terms of ins and outs.

He is well known for being able to make quick judgments on whether players can fit in with his philosophy. He hired Pochettino as a schoolboy after watching him for only five minutes in a trial game.

'I never asked him what he saw but I think I understand now,' Pochettino said. 'It is a question of attitude and energy. A guy like Bielsa, who was ahead of his time, could see the lot in five minutes.'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has described Bielsa as 'the best coach in the world'
Guardiola has hailed Bielsa as 'the best coach in the world' because of his influence on the game. Top stars such as Alexis Sanchez and his 2002 World Cup player Simeone have learnt under him.

The major concern is whether it is too late in life for Bielsa to transfer his genius, as Guardiola has done, or whether he will end up like Fabio Capello, who came to England past his prime.

Listening to former Bilbao player Ander Herrera, it is also uncertain whether the physical demands Bielsa makes will be too much over a 46-game season.

Herrera, who helped Bilbao reach the 2012 Europa League final under Bielsa before eventually joining Manchester United, revealed on a recent podcast: 'In the last few months, we couldn't even move.

'We were physically finished and lost two cup finals. We used to always play with the same team and finally our legs said 'stop'.'

Leeds is a graveyard for managers. None has lasted more than a year since Brian McDermott in 2014. Bielsa is different, special. Whether he can buck the trend by bringing the glory days back to Elland Road is one of the stories of the season.

As Gray puts it: 'We are aware of Bielsa's record and credit to the owner for getting someone of such a high level.

'But ultimately only two statistics count in football: how many goals you score, and how many you concede. The proof of the pudding is results.'

ARGENTINIAN JOURNALIST ARIEL CUKIERKORN ON BIELSA

Since he quit Argentina national team in 2004, claiming 'to lack the necessary energy' for the job, Marcelo Bielsa has been a continuous reference from a parallel world in the ecosystem of Argentine football. His figure still triggers fascination or irritation with the same intensity, a difference of opinion that the knock out in the first round of 2002 World Cup turned only more extreme.

'Bielsa devours life', Eduardo Berizzo, a key player for Bielsa at Newell’s Old Boys and assistant coach with Chile, once said. And life equals football in Marcelo Bielsa’s mind.

His passion and obsession for concepts, tactics, methods and information, combined with his rigid ethics and his no-filter approach to the players, has seen him called El Loco. The charisma is nowadays as fresh as the first day, with some Twitter accounts that celebrate every quote as sacred words and with detractors that criticise his cryptic sentences and see every new job in the middle class European teams as the proof that Bielsa has always been an outsider of true football.

There’s an issue in which no one dares to argue regarding Bielsa - authenticity, no matter the consequences, and an impeccable reputation in the muddy universe of football business.

Bielsa may be remembered for driving Athletic Bilbao to thrash Manchester United in Old Trafford, predicting the sure success of this French generation in a press conference three years ago or either being caught watching a game in his iPad eating a hamburger in McDonald’s. He can be as distant as an obsessed scientist or either too human as he wears tracksuits bottoms and the hanging glasses on every single occasion.

It is almost impossible to imagine Bielsa working in Argentine football again, perhaps an emotional return to Newell’s Old Boys far in the future. Even out of the establishment, someway his influence remains in the discussion. He could be regarded as a strong inspiration in Pep Guardiola’s success as well as for Jorge Sampaoli’s recent failure in Russia with Argentina.

'Bielsa is a living legend, a man that unveils the miseries and contradictions in football, no wonder the only one in the game to have a stadium named on his behalf. Many may say that his normal behaviour is just smoke, but it’s no secret the biggest clubs cannot afford to cope with a person that is 24/7 genuine. To value his huge contribution to football in that context and in spite of the lack of titles or good results is precisely more challenging', says Román Iucht, who published a biography in 2011.

Leeds United, the tradition, the glory to recover, the familiar ingredients to follow Bielsa in a new cause. A man with a vision, a man that turns every job into a new mission.

Jeg så litt på kampen mot Las Palmas, som kun var trenings kamp, men likevel en generalprøve mot beste motstand hittil.

Konturene av godt forsvarsspill var det som slo meg. Agressivt press på ballfører og flere Leeds spillere i press kollektivt høyt i banen og rundt ballfører. Dekket rom og forflyttet lagdeler fint. Denne formasjonen er bra.

Mye foregikk langs bakken og det blir mer fysikk og engelske luftdueller nå serien begynner. Spent på akkurat det.

Men konturene til Bielsa var der. Med omtrent samme lag som PH idag. En klok trener. Nå har jeg litt håp.

Det er faktisk ikke uten videre riktig, det er mange som ikke tåler svært intensiv trening og kampprogram over tid, ihvertfall hvis den ikke tilpasses nøye den enkelte spillers fysiologiske forutsetninger (som vil variere mye fra individ til individ) med vekt på riktig balanse mellom trening og restitusjon. Viktig poeng det du skriver om rullering.

Googlet litt og fant blant annet dette fra en tidligere spiller under Bielsa. (Er vel gjengitt tidligere i denne tråden også)

Jeg kjenner at jeg ikke er så bekymret mtp rullering. Ok, så kan vi ikke erstatte 1til1 på alle posisjoner, men hvem kan egentlig det? Det er det de færreste forunt, men er det sunt å ha en så stor stall men innbyttere på hver plass av så høy kaliber? Skal godt gjøres å holde hele laget fornøyd da egentlig. Må være de som kan betale avskyelige summer for å la deg spille på B-laget eller sitte på benken i tilfelle du trengs.

Nei, tror med signeringene som virker å være på vei inn at vi må fokusere på det vi har.  I tillegg trene på U23 slik at de kan steppe inn når det trengs. Det skal godt gjøres at mange spillere er ute samtidig i samme posisjon. Dette er likt for alle lag egentlig.
Omrokkeringene som Bielsa har gjort med at spillere spiller litt ut av posisjon, beviser at spillerne kan lære seg å spille etter et system. Fortsetter man å prente på systemet tror jeg det er lettere å steppe inn når det skal rulleres.

En ting er det fysiske. En annen ting er mentalitet.
Har vi mentaliteten denne sesongen?
I fjor var vi jo ikke i nærheten. Enkeltspillere kollapset tidlig. Kollektivt kollapset vi totalt på nyåret.
Det er det som er vanskeligst å gjøre noe med. Så her, Bielsa, blir det spennende å se utfallet av "nye Leeds".

Er stammen i laget sterk nok? Er balansen  i forhold til unge og rutinerte riktig?
Tar de nye spillerene tak? Har vi nok ledere?

Både på sidelinjen og på banen manglet jo stort sett alt i fjor hva gjelder dette som er nevnt over.

Det er det som er vanskeligst å gjøre noe med. Så her, Bielsa, blir det spennende å se utfallet av "nye Leeds".

Er stammen i laget sterk nok? Er balansen  i forhold til unge og rutinerte riktig?
Tar de nye spillerene tak? Har vi nok ledere?

Både på sidelinjen og på banen manglet jo stort sett alt i fjor hva gjelder dette som er nevnt over.
Det er etter min mening en vesensforskjell denne sesongen i forhold til tidligere: spillernes griserespekt for treneren ;)

Jeg håper det.
Guardiola og Bielsa er ganske like i hvordan det mentale spiller inn hvis man skal være best.
Håper han får det ut til spillerne.
Et godt tegn på det er jo at okane, murphy, ekuban ganske tidlig med nedgradert.
Spillere med klare tegn på at oppgaven blir dor stor.

Men det KAN jo gå bra likevel da. :)

Dessuten sies det jo fra flere av klubbene han forlot at fundamentet han rakk å bygge nøt de godt av i etterkant. :)
Heldigvis har han ikke vært spesielt kostbar for oss (ennå) - tenker mest mht spillerkjøp her...

Ja, det er sant Asbjørn. Bielsa er hyret for å omstrukturere hele det sportslige apparatet og bygge en kultur. Jeg håper han lykkes men føler meg langtfra trygg på at han er rett mann til rett tid.

Jeg tror han er rett mann, og dermed også at det er rett tid. Jeg tror at Rad og resten av klubbledelsen egentlig misliker sterkt at de måtte fortsette manager-utskiftningene. Nå har de hentet en virkelig proven mann, og jeg tror de vil gi ham rikelig med tid til å bevise hva han kan. Det er slett ikke sikkert vi lykkes på første forsøk, men så lenge det vises fremgang tror jeg det er sannsynlig at Bielsa minst får to sesonger. Om vi ikke rykker opp innen våren 2020 begynner det nok å spøke, men jeg tror faktisk han vil lykkes med det. Litt mer erfaring med hvem som fungerer og hvem som ikke gjør det, samt ett eller to transfervindu til bør faktisk holde.

Sunn skepsis er sunn, men dette er vel et tur ut på viddene! Leeds har ikke hatt en retning sportslig siden O’Leary fortsatte det Graham startet.

Klubben hungrer i alle ledd etter en som tør å ta grep og stille krav til hver enkelt i systemet. Bielsa gjør dette! Hver dag!

I denne klubben har vi Radz som ønsker å skape en vinnerkultur! Vi har en eier som legger utrolig mye profesjonalitet og penger i prosjektet Leeds United!

Vi er i ferd med å få inn mange spillere som biter på agnet fra klubben og får tilbake troen på at vi er på vei oppover!

Det sportslige ansvaret ligger hos Bielsa og hans interaksjon med spillerne! På dette nivået hviler det trygt der!

Rolig nå. Du skriver jo omtrent det jeg skrev, bare med mange flere ord , minus skepsisen til om dette vil lykkes.

Jeg er naturligvis veldig glad for at Rad har tatt grep og at han har hentet inn en proven «manager» til å bygge en vinnerkultur. Skepsisen bunner først og fremst i Bielsas svært ambisiøse spillestil og det faktum at det begynner å bli noen år siden han lyktes på klubbnivå. Tiden vil vise om skepsisen var helt på viddene. Jeg håper selvfølgelig det.  ;)

HITTIL har Radrizzani vært på nivå med Cellino mht å være tålmodig med head coachen. Jeg håper han gir Bielsa mer tid men det gjenstår å se om han virkelig gjør det.


DESSUTEN har vi usikkerheten rundt Bielsa selv. Flere ganger har han kuttet tvert, som regel fordi han har blitt lovet bedre forutsetninger enn han har fått i sine europeiske klubber.

Her aner det meg likevel at engelsk fotball er en liga han virkelig ønsker å lykkes i.
Språk-utfordringer har han nok, oversetterne er med i all kontakt med spillerne. MEN Bielsa kan snakke morsmålet med ledelsen i klubben.

Det er utvilsomt en fordel.

Jeg tror også at det taler til vår fordel at Bielsa ser vi har mange lovende unge på gang. Bielsa har ved flere anledninger foretrukket å jobbe med disse. God arbeidskapasitet som regel, og lettere å forme i sin fotball...

Det skal bli spennende! :)

Engelsken kommer seg, ifølge Phillips. :)

Nearly seven weeks into his tenure, Bielsa’s messages are evidently being understood loud and clear through the help of his translator though Bielsa admitted upon being appointed by Leeds that he would try to get to grips with the country’s language.

Phillips has been able to provide a promising update.“It’s not bad to be fair!” laughed Phillips, asked how Bielsa’s English was.“Obviously he has still got a translator but he did a speech the other day and all the lads were quite impressed with his English.”Revealing the ways that Bielsa gets his messages across, Phillips smiled: “His interpreter tells us!“Obviously you get the gist of it but if we are not doing it right he won’t shout at us.“He will shout at his interpreter. Then his interpreter can tell us!”

Uansett hvem vi hadde ansatt så ville vi følt litt usikkerhet. Ny kultur og engelsk fotball er selvsagt usikkerhet her. Ingen kan garantere suksess noe sted. At noen engelske spaltister (Collymore) tviler på utenlandske trenere er ikke uvanlig. De mener selvsagt at britisk coach er det aller beste. Evans sa også det på BBC i juni. Klart vi må si ja til å bytte inn Bielsa mot PH.

Personlig tror jeg vi får et bedre organisert lag med MB. Få lysende stjerner men et lag som drar sammen er min spådom. Og sanker poeng.  Spillerkjøp er også opp ett hakk denne sommeren.

Selv om Bielsa ikke lykkes med play off så vil klubben stå enda sterkere neste sommer. Leeds står ikke og faller med denne sesongen.

Bielsas ankomst til klubben har gjort det lettere å anskaffe bedre spillere. Særlig PL-klubber anser talentene sine i trygge hender når de låner dem ut til Bielsas Leeds. Dette bør man merke seg i klubbledelsen. Når Bielsas engasjement en gang tar slutt, må vi aldri mer få flere tusseladdansettelser av typen Evans og Heckingbottom. Leeds må alltid ansette vel meritterte trenere, da spillere ønsker å spille under slike.

Victor Orta says Marcelo Bielsa's arrival at Leeds helps club in transfer market

Leeds United's director of football Victor Orta says the influence of head coach Marcelo Bielsa can only help the club in the transfer market.

By Tim Thornton
Last Updated: 01/08/18 10:03pm
New Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa during a press conference at Elland Road

Leeds made their fifth summer signing on Tuesday when they completed a deal for Middlesbrough striker Patrick Bamford.


Leading Leeds United
Is Marcelo Bielsa the man to return Leeds to the glory days? We go exclusively behind the scenes in the build up to the new season.

Leading Leeds United

They have already signed two players on loan from Chelsea in this window, Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman, and they also secured a loan deal for Manchester City winger Jack Harrison on Monday.

And Orta revealed: "It's true that when we discuss with big clubs about loans they feel more open.

"They trust players in the hands of Bielsa."

Leeds have adopted a different transfer strategy this summer, focusing on the English market for recruitment.

Patrick Bamford joined Leeds earlier this week

And Orta says Bielsa is fully on board with what they are trying to achieve.

"I feel a good synergy with the coach in the transfer market. Bielsa knows his philosophy and that is helpful for the director of football," he added.

Orta was speaking on a special programme, 'Leading Leeds United', which airs on Sky Sports Football on Thursday night at 2000.

En klubb som Leeds vil alltid tiltrekke seg spillere. En merittert manager vil naturligvis gjøre det enda mer attraktivt å komne hit,  men først og fremt er det penga som rår ref Vydra.

Merkelige greier dette, for bàre noen dager siden var det full panikk i leiren fordi «ingen» syntes å ville komme til Leeds. Orta var udugelig, Rad hadde «rømt» og fikk massiv kritikk fordi vi ikke ville betale «markedspris» og «markedslønn» for gode spillere.  ::)

Hadde Warnock kommet inn etter to år med Bielsa så hadde det jo vært helt på tryne, selv om Warnock er en "stor" manager. Da vil jeg heller ha en "ukjent" up and coming manager som ønsker samme fotball som Bielsa. Men aller helst en merittert trener som har de samme ideene.

Dette bør man merke seg i klubbledelsen. Når Bielsas engasjement en gang tar slutt, må vi aldri mer få flere tusseladdansettelser av typen Evans og Heckingbottom. Leeds må alltid ansette vel meritterte trenere, da spillere ønsker å spille under slike.

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa excited by the latest test in wide and varied career

ON THE BALL: Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa
Kes, the Ken Loach masterpiece, is high on the British Film Institute’s list of movies to watch before the age of 14.


Now 63, Marcelo Bielsa came late to that party but at the end of Leeds United’s pre-season friendly at Oxford last week a DVD of the film was spotted in the away dug-out, sat on top of his notebooks and bags.

Football and the lure of taking Leeds by the horns drove ‘El Loco’ to these shores but Bielsa came with a promise to immerse himself in his new surroundings: improve his English, embrace the locality and discover God’s Own Country.

Kes turns 50 next year and few productions are more Yorkshire at heart. What Bielsa thought of it and how the film fell into his hands is anyone’s guess.

At the Championship’s coalface, his faculties will be tested too. Bielsa’s career has taken him to six different countries and three different continents while creating a mass of devotees behind him but the kill-or-be-killed ethos of the Championship should prove an education.

When Leeds unveiled him at a media briefing on June 25, Bielsa had evidently done his homework.

To give sense to any project or any plans for the future in a football sense, what drives you is having that desire, that hope and that belief that you carry out everything everyone wants, and achieve what everyone wants.

Marcelo Bielsa
“It maybe exceeds what I’ve originally heard about the league here,” he said, “but I’ve heard it’s the sixth or seventh best league in the world.”

Bielsa seemed enthused by that, saying he had a “real flavour and a real desire to start participating in this league.” Stoke City at home on Sunday, Leeds’ first game of the new season, is as good a taste as he will get.

No club have spent more than Stoke and no club is more fancied to win the title. There are no looseners or gimmies to start with: just an immediate dive into the most difficult of examinations.

Leeds were brittle at home last season, devoid of the aura they created at Elland Road with Garry Monk during the 2016-17 season. Bielsa said he did not see why the ground should instill any tension in his players.

“Having my first game at home and to have the kind of belief and excitement in what’s going to be a sell-out crowd, making it like a Premier League game, that for me is something to be really excited about, rather than it be considered a problem,” Bielsa said. “It’s something which really stimulates me. It’s an incentive.

“There are no easy games in football. We never think about an easy game as a manager but we are naturally optimistic most of the time. To give sense to any project or any plans for the future in a football sense, what drives you is having that desire, that hope and that belief that you carry out everything everyone wants, and achieve what everyone wants.”

Most of the clubs who Bielsa has worked for wanted something specific from him. Newell’s Old Boys, the first side he managed, wanted the feel of silverware again. In Mexico, teams like Atlas wanted his expertise with youth development and scouting. Athletic Bilbao, Marseille and Lille thought Bielsa could elevate them in their domestic leagues. Bilbao had most to thank him for when his time was up. And at Leeds, he is trying to end 14 years of slumber in the EFL. In every job he has done it his way, for better or worse. His work at Elland Road is proving no different.

Bielsa winds up with a copy of Kes, Leeds wind up with Kalvin Phillips as a makeshift centre-back. Bielsa tries to enhance his English, the club’s players learn how to understand the urgings of a head coach who speaks in Spanish. He has sought no attention since he came to the fore and courted no publicity, maintaining a silence which adds to his mystique. There was quiet amusement when Bielsa was seen dropping into McDonalds on the A59 an hour or so after Leeds’ pre-season friendly at York City.

Bielsa’s personality will be part of the ride this season. His tactics are a non-negotiable part of the deal for any club appointing him. Leeds knew what to expect and at a cost of more than £2m a year, they are in for drama one way or another.

“We almost have an obligation as managers to put into place what we believe and what we think is right,” Bielsa said. “We can’t convince people to do what we say and follow us if we don’t believe ourselves. You always imagine being part of some success and that motivates you. It makes you emotional.”

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa ‘scary’ but is making all the right noises

Marcelo Bielsa was always destined to be a big noise in the Championship, and Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips says the volume has been high since the Argentine arrived at Elland Road.

Phillips says even the language barrier has not prevented former Chile manager Bielsa imposing his personality on Leeds.

The Bielsa era starts in earnest on Sunday with a home game against Stoke City, and Phillips believes the presence of the “scary” Bielsa will be felt, not least by his colleagues in the dugout.

“He shouts a lot,” said Phillips. “To be fair, he doesn’t really shout at the players. If we do something wrong, he’ll shout at his staff and they tell us. He’s quite emotional.

“He’s very highly motivated so if you aren’t doing something right, he goes out of his way to make sure you know about it. He does look scary but he is human. He does tell jokes and have a laugh, he’s just passionate about what he does.

“The language barrier is hard but there are translators who speak English so it’s all a bit easier now.”

Bielsa’s arrival has seen Leeds installed among the favourites to reach the Premier League and Phillips, 22, says the players are enjoying the change.

“He knows a lot about football and he wants to make sure we know exactly how we’re going to play,’’ added Phillips.

Leeds United’s clever additions boost core group that Marcelo Bielsa already has faith in

Phil HayPublished: 21:03
 BREAKING THE BANK: Leeds United's owner Andrea Radrizzani was so desperate to land Marcelo Bielsa that the club are paying him �2m a year.
BREAKING THE BANK: Leeds United's owner Andrea Radrizzani was so desperate to land Marcelo Bielsa that the club are paying him �2m a year.
THE seeds of Marcelo Bielsa’s demise at Marseille in 2015 were sown in the boardroom rather than the dressing room. Trust was lost and relationships broke down at the highest level of the club but Bielsa’s squad, almost to a man, were sorry to see him go.


Steve Mandanda, his goalkeeper and captain, credited the Argentinian with making “almost everyone in this group of players progress” and there are echoes in that remark of the trait which Bielsa will be most reliant on as head coach of Leeds United: the power to upgrade and alter the limitations of footballers left behind by other managers. Leeds’ answer to last season’s theatrics has been to change the director while retaining much of the cast.

 TIGHT-LIPPED: Marcelo Bielsa has not given much away since taking charge at Leeds United.
TIGHT-LIPPED: Marcelo Bielsa has not given much away since taking charge at Leeds United.
Before signing a two-year contract at Elland Road, Bielsa subjected himself to footage of every minute of last season – all on VHS – to see what he was getting himself into. When Leeds asked for his observations, he told them that he was happy to work with a large core of the existing squad.


Some players he rejected and United’s cull has run into double figures but Bielsa put no pressure on Andrea Radrizzani to rebuild the team from back to front.

It was, on the face of it, an unexpected vote of confidence from a fastidious coach. Leeds lost 20 games last season and conceded 64 goals. Discounting pre-season friendlies and their tour of Myanmar, they have not won away from home since Boxing Day. There were managers out there who would have torn up a unit so flaky without any sense of guilt but Bielsa saw scope for meaningful, marginal gains in many who he inherited. The needs and objectives in the transfer window, he said, “weren’t to be highly exaggerated”.


Leeds have not done much to alter that rhetoric. There is a definite juxtaposition between the recruitment of the highest-paid manager in almost a century of football at Elland Road, on more than £2m a year, and the considered treatment given to a squad defined as mid-table by the most recent Championship term.

He has said so little in public since his first press conference - nothing, in fact – that there is no way of guessing his mind without him articulating his thoughts.

Phil Hay
The slow rate of business at Elland Road was not intentional and much of this summer told a tale of a club who lost time to negotiations which failed when talks came down to brass tacks but there was never a plan to match Nottingham Forest in filling a bus with new signings. There was no desire either for a repeat of last summer, when Leeds spread their cash thinly across too many deals and discovered that in the European market an owner often gets what he pays for.

Radrizzani, United’s majority shareholder, wants promotion this season. Neither he nor Leeds will say that publicly and their delayed activity in the transfer market felt like a contradiction. But there have been changes to the business model in the past few months: the sale of a 12 per cent stake in the club to the investment arm of the San Francisco 49ers in return for hard cash, the employment of a head coach earning far in excess of the salaries of his two predecessors and the willingness to engage players as expensive as Matej Vydra or Abel Hernandez. If Radrizzani’s five-year plan of ownership is even intact, year two cannot afford to be the washout year one became.


The initial problem with Leeds’ recruitment strategy was money. They stretched to pay Bielsa what he wanted, well aware that the 63-year-old could name his price, but Hernandez’s package as a free agent was deemed too expensive and Vydra priced United out by asking for more than £50,000 a week.

The Championship would once have laughed at a demand like that but in a division where Stoke City are signing Tom Ince, James McClean and Benik Afobe without troubling the bank manager, salaries and fees are on the rise. Derby County gazumped Leeds with a considerably higher wage offer to Florian Jozefzoon and while Leeds believed they were targeting the right calibre of player, they found in certain instances that they lacked the financial might to tip the balance in their favour.

In an expensive seller’s market there is only so much Radrizzani is willing to risk but latterly United’s persistence came good. Barry Douglas is a five-star solution to the gaping hole at left-back, the best Championship player in that position last season and a defender with pace and assists in his game. Patrick Bamford has scored goals in this league and might find that a fresh start taps into his old potential. Both are clever additions in the weakest areas and both at the required standard, creating a starting line-up with more class and balance.

Bielsa might have been frustrated by parts of this window or he might have sympathised with the strain Leeds were under. He has said so little in public since his first press conference – nothing, in fact – that there is no way of guessing his mind without him articulating his thoughts. In the meantime, his coaching and ethos have taken hold; the high press, the use of advanced full-backs, the redeployment of Kalvin Phillips as a virtual centre-back and Adam Forshaw as a No 10. Bielsa wanted a lean squad in terms of numbers but United’s players, after weeks of double sessions, look healthy and conditioned. Bielsa is so fixated on players being in perfect shape that Jamal Blackman missed the first three of the club’s friendlies to work on his core fitness.


There are, in spite of that, variables Bielsa cannot control. The intensity of the Championship requires a certain size and quality of squad and he will learn about the reality of English scheduling in a relentless first month of the season. It would threaten to make him feel his age were Bielsa not the sort of man who watches 70-plus hours of football before accepting a job. There are coaches in the league with more expensive resources and it will be clear before long if his faith in Leeds’ existing players is well placed. Bielsa was, and is, the patron saint of ambitious, vibrant football but few opponents in all his years will have steamed in like Millwall when Leeds brave the perennial mayhem of Bermondsey in September.

In his first press conference Bielsa was careful not to presume too much of his own talent. “I think if you are trying to predict the future, you are almost becoming a demagogue rather than a football coach,” he said. “It’s better to be reasonable and measured and not give sweeping predictions.” The fact remains that at no point in 99 years have Leeds stacked more money or hope on the expertise of their head coach. And in all Bielsa’s 63 years, few achievements would exceed the marvel of promotion this season.

Kort oppsummering etter dagens pressekonferanse:

Bielsa has provided little in the way of transfer insight since taking the Leeds reins, other than to state he was happy for the squad to be pruned when he took over. That has certainly happened, with Ronaldo Vieira becoming the 12th player to leave the club this summer either on loan or permanently when he joined Sampdoria in a shock move earlier this week. The number of exits haven’t been matched by the arrivals, with only five secured, three of whom are on season-long loans. The capture of Patrick Bamford has been warmly welcomed as Leeds fulfilled their urgent need for a proven goalscorer, but the squad is crying out for reinforcements in key positions. Little wonder Bielsa, speaking today through a translator, would welcome more signings. The team needs a senior centre-back, a central midfielder of class and experience after the Vieira sale and Adam Forshaw injury blow, as well as another goalscorer to back up Bamford.

Emotion runs deep for Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa

Marcelo Bielsa has faced the media for only the second time since taking the Leeds job. He spoke about life at the club so far, the way he wants Leeds to play and how success is more important than money to him. Phil Hay reports.


In all their many weeks of contract talks, Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds United never once came to blows over money.

His salary – very high by Leeds’ standards if not by his own – was settled early on, an aspect of negotiations which required no haggling.

Emotion, Bielsa said yesterday, is worth more than hard cash, especially when you reach his age.

Now 63, Leeds are paying him well with a wage or more than £2m but in years to come he wants memories to go with it: the belonging he felt with Newell’s Old Boys, the public devotion he found at Athletic Bilbao and the maddening clamour of Marseille’s Stade Velodrome.

Tomorrow he will see how Elland Road compares to Marseille, when Leeds host Stoke City in his first competitive game as head coach.

Patrick Bamford

Over time he hopes that this job – one of England’s most notoriously difficult – creates the emotional attachment he discovered elsewhere. Seven weeks in Yorkshire have given him the taste of a starved, expectant city.

This weekend it all starts; Bielsa and Leeds, a marriage which looked hopelessly ambitious before Leeds pulled it off.

The club are heavily invested in the Argentinian but the Argentinian is no less invested in them, embarking on what he said was “a search for strong emotions”.

“I always measure challenges with the emotion that was produced,” Bielsa said. “When I was head coach at Newell’s Old Boys, it was the happiest moment of my career. I worked also in Bilbao, which is unique, and in Marseille where it is impossible not to be moved by the atmosphere of the stadium.

At the end of the day what you remember with football is the emotions. You feel a lot better when you remember emotions than when you count money. Sometimes we learn this reality late.

Marcelo Bielsa
“In a nutshell, even if people think we work for money, football is a search for strong emotions. At the end of the day what you remember with football is the emotions. You feel a lot better when you remember emotions than when you count money. Sometimes we learn this reality late.

“The condition to work for emotion is to have money. But after you have enough money, emotions are a lot more important. I will hope it will be a fact that my work in Leeds is full of emotions.”

His pre-season has been meticulous, as intense and full-on as Bielsa’s summers tend to be.

In amongst the many hours spent at Thorp Arch – regularly 12 a day for his players – he has tried to teach himself about life around him. He confessed to being “worried” about the expectancy he encountered, the natural anxiety of wondering whether he could live up to all that Leeds demand of him.

Bielsa hails from Rosario in Argentina and, in his homeland, lives away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The greener parts of Yorkshire have reminded him of his countryside dwelling.

Earlier this month he was taken to the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate, a quintessential White Rose event. “I visited a fair and gathered many impressions of Yorkshire,” he said. “It was a big fair, with 60,000 people. This allowed me to get to know the region where I am now. In Argentina, I live in the countryside and there are many similarities with Yorkshire.

“The result of our work (in football) impacts on the senses of the people, and especially working-class people.

“Of course I feel a deep responsibility. I am a little bit worried about this. It is very important for me to be at the level of the expectancy.”

To reach it, Bielsa plans to throw the kitchen sink at what he finds in the Championship, fighting fire with fire and attacking at will.

Stoke are highly fancied in the Championship but Bielsa, in paying them due respect, admitted he had thought little about the ins and outs of Gary Rowett’s side. “The rival is interesting for me,” he said, “but I don’t consider details a priority.”

Instead, he will ask Leeds to play as his teams traditionally try to play. “I want to be a protagonist and I don’t want to speculate,” he said. “I want to play in the opponent’s (half) rather than ours. I like my team to attack and not defend. I take the risk to attack in small, reduced spaces and defend in big spaces. If we have to defend the goal, the idea is to go back on the attack as soon as possible.

“I prefer players who have creativity and I accept the risks you take when you build from the back but for each of my affirmations there is an opposite possibility and each is completely valid.

“I wouldn’t criticise a team who play long balls. I wouldn’t criticise anyone waiting instead of attacking. I wouldn’t criticise any team that plays hard rather than create. But what I like is what I’ve said. It doesn’t mean my philosophy is the best one.”

Stoke, before a ball has been kicked, have been singled out at the litmus test in the Championship, the team which any club winning the title might have to outrun. Tomorrow’s game is the pick of the opening weekend. A flurry of expensive signings were topped up this week by the arrival on loan of defender Ashley Williams from Everton, in time to play at Elland Road.

“It’s a strong rival,” Bielsa said, “but it would be risky to say they’re the most important rival. Sometimes what we imagine before the season starts doesn’t happen. It’s very hard to predict. I’m glad with all of the work we’ve done so far. But of course, we will have a better idea of the quality of our work once we get into the competition.”

Around him is a crackle of anticipation, derived from the realisation that Bielsa and Leeds could be the dream ticket or a short-lived, tempestuous affair. A protagonist, he calls himself, and England’s biggest one-club city needs one. It is not only Bielsa looking for emotion round here.

The Guardian

Marcelo Bielsa takes charge of Leeds United for the first time against Stoke City on Sunday.

Marcelo Bielsa had a question. The new Leeds manager wanted to find out how hard the average supporter had to work to pay for a ticket to watch the team. How many hours did he or she have to put in? It was unclear what kind of calculations went into the answer but one was provided. It would be about three.

So the Argentinian called his players together and he told them that, for the next three hours, they would be picking up litter from around the club’s Thorp Arch training ground. He wanted them to learn a lesson; to appreciate how the fans laboured to fulfil their passion.

Leeds is a bigger club than I deserve, says manager Marcelo Bielsa. It was classic Bielsa on many levels, taking in his empathy for the worker, his fixation with discipline and team spirit and, above all, the quirkiness and unpredictability that has led to the “El Loco” nickname. The 63-year-old is not crazy. It is just that his obsessive nature, ferocious intensity, eccentricities and refusal to adhere to convention can make him seem that way.

When Bielsa strode into Leeds on 15 June to replace Paul Heckingbottom, it quickly became clear the club would never be the same again. The stories of Bielsa’s attention to detail are already legendary. He runs his forefinger across various surfaces at Thorp Arch to check for dust, invariably being appalled at what he finds, while he once inquired why there was a bootprint on a wall – about half a yard from the floor.

It was explained to him that, perhaps, it was the result of somebody leaning back against it, with his or her foot up. “That shows the person is not concentrated on their work! Unacceptable!” Bielsa exclaimed. Leeds have had and do have bigger problems than the odd dirty mark but this is Bielsa, the perfectionist, and this is how he intends to drag the club up by their bootlaces: little bit by little bit.

 Bielsa checks all the surfaces at the Leeds training ground for dust, invariably appalled by what he finds
Leeds are often described as the deepest sleeping of England’s giants and their travails since relegation from the Premier League in 2004 are well-documented. The club have tried many things and gone through many managers yet the roll of the dice on Bielsa is arguably the most intriguing and exciting.

This, after all, is a former Argentina manager; a man who became a hero in Chile for his work with the national team; and somebody so revered at Newell’s Old Boys, his local club in Rosario and the first one he managed, 28 years ago, that they have named the stadium after him.

Bielsa has also taken charge of clubs in Mexico, Spain, France and Italy – although only briefly in the last of these. He walked out on Lazio after two days in 2016 because, to his mind, things were not right and he could feel it straight away. The drama somehow added a further layer to his maverick legend. The year before, he quit Marseille after the first game of his second season.

Bielsa is a mentor to some of the game’s leading managers, chiefly Pep Guardiola, Diego Simeone and Mauricio Pochettino, whom he took to Newell’s as a promising 14‑year‑old defender and set on the path to an international career.

Bielsa’s attention to detail has been unrivalled since his arrival at Leeds.

It was the idea of Victor Orta, the Leeds director of football, to consider Bielsa, and Andrea Radrizzani, the club’s owner, saw the merit in it; the intrinsic sense of boldness. Bielsa’s CV spoke for itself, as did his commitment to attacking football. He was also available, his previous job at Lille having ended quickly and badly in December 2017.

Bielsa was the No 1 candidate. After what amounted to a job interview in Buenos Aires with the managing director, Angus Kinnear, and Orta, he became the only candidate. Kinnear and Orta had wanted to know how well he knew the Championship. Bielsa delved into his copious notes and began his response by detailing the respective teams in formation from last season’s Burton v Bolton game.

Leeds asked Bielsa how well he knew the Championship. He knew every formation each team had used last season
Then, he went through every formation Burton and Bolton had used throughout the season and, after that, he did likewise for every other club in the division. Bielsa could say, for example, how many times a team had played 4-3-3, 4-4-2 or 3-5-2. He had even calculated the probability for one formation to beat another. The story of how Kinnear and Orta reacted has gone around Elland Road. They are said to have looked at each other, shrugged and agreed it was a pretty good answer.

Leeds had a final obstacle to clear regarding a work permit because Bielsa had not worked often enough over the past few years. He needed to go down the FA’s exceptional talent route but he would receive exceptional backing, with Pochettino – following a request from Leeds to Tottenham – only too happy to write a letter of support.

Bielsa went before the FA’s expert panellists – the Portsmouth manager, Kenny Jackett, and the former Blackburn and England winger Stuart Ripley – and it is fair to say the outcome was not in doubt. Unlike Bielsa, neither Jackett nor Ripley has managed at a World Cup. Bielsa has brought eight members of staff with him to Elland Road and the club are paying them a collective £3m a year after tax.

Bielsa has made a typically radical impression. Previously, the first team and academy players shared the same areas at Thorp Arch but no more. Having studied the architectural drawings, Bielsa demanded the first team be granted their own private space and that a dormitory and games room be created for them.

Bielsa has led two different countries at World Cups: Argentina in 2002 and Chile in 2010.
He has stressed the training ground is a place of work and the players are there to work all day. They are in at 9am and stay until seven or eight in the evening – quite a departure from the lunchtime finishes of old. The training is gruelling, mentally and physically, with an emphasis on one-on-one coaching. They will break for lunch and a siesta at the new sleeping quarters.

Bielsa has had a bed installed in his office. The amount of time he spends within its four walls, poring over videos, is remarkable. His approach to match preparation – and everything else – pushes the boundaries of total immersion.

Leeds’s appointment of Bielsa has had the feel of a coup. The reality of the club’s situation, with recently relegated rivals still receiving parachute payments and the financial fair play rules hemming United in, means they have needed to seek a creative solution.

Bielsa is it. The hierarchy believe he offers a competitive advantage in terms of knowledge, experience and patented tactical approach, which is characterised by a three‑man defence, extreme width, aggressive pressing, risk-taking, constant movement and relentless physical effort. The statistics show the players ran more, on average, across their six pre-season games than they did in league matches last season.

The Bielsa factor, along with his contacts, was also intended to help with transfers and there has been evidence it has been the case. Guardiola suggested Bielsa take the England Under-21 winger Jack Harrison on loan from Manchester City, which he did, while the Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker, who was chased by several clubs, took a significant pay cut to join on loan because he wanted to play for Bielsa.

The anticipation has built around Sunday’s opener at home to Stoke but it is undercut by a number of concerns. Can the players cope with Bielsa’s demands over 46 games? Will he adapt to the Championship? Are his best and most innovative days behind him? Will there be conflict, which has been a theme of his career?

It feels as though this could go very well or very badly. Then again, Leeds is not a place for the middle ground.

He needed to go down the FA’s exceptional talent route but he would receive exceptional backing, with Pochettino – following a request from Leeds to Tottenham – only too happy to write a letter of support.

Bielsa went before the FA’s expert panellists – the Portsmouth manager, Kenny Jackett, and the former Blackburn and England winger Stuart Ripley – and it is fair to say the outcome was not in doubt. Unlike Bielsa, neither Jackett nor Ripley has managed at a World Cup. Bielsa has brought eight members of staff with him to Elland Road and the club are paying them a collective £3m a year after tax.

Enda et avsnitt:

The hierarchy believe he offers a competitive advantage in terms of knowledge, experience and patented tactical approach, which is characterised by a three‑man defence, extreme width, aggressive pressing, risk-taking, constant movement and relentless physical effort. The statistics show the players ran more, on average, across their six pre-season games than they did in league matches last season.

Helt klart. Jock Stein og Clough var større navn enn Wilkinson da de tre ble ansatt. Og Stein er et større navn enn Graham. Faktisk utrolig at Leeds fikk tak i Jock Stein. Han er legende og Fergusons mentor. Men han tok landslaget da tilbudet kom.

Vi holder oss til legende-status og da har vi bare Revie og Wilkinson! Graham var god i Arsenal og viktig for Leeds. Clough var en flau opplevelse. Han hatet Leeds og spillerne. Talentløs approach! Stein var kun i klubben 45 dager før han valgte å-dø-for-Skotland! Neppe Leedshelt han heller!

Marcelo Bielsa VET han kan bli en del Leeds-folkloren langt inn i historien - hvis han lykkes! Jeg tror dette driver ham! Gleder meg til å gi ham legendestatus i denne tråden om et par år!  ;)

Marcelo Bielsa makes his eagerly-awaited Leeds bow on Sunday with a home Sky Bet Championship game against Stoke, live on Sky Sports.

The Argentine is revered for his coaching philosophy that has brought about success and inspired several other managers. But he is also sometimes outspoken and did not last long in his previous two jobs with Lazio and Lille.

Ahead of his first game in charge of Leeds, we get insight from those who know Bielsa and those who are getting to know him at Elland Road...

'Leeds fans are in for a treat'

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague

"His teams have to attack, attack, attack. And when they lose the ball they have to recover it as soon as possible. This sounds quite familiar now, but he was one of the original ones doing this, which is why he is a little bit of guru. He applied a new way of thinking about the game.

WATCH: Leading Leeds United

"I think it's very unfair that he is called 'El Loco'. He is not crazy. He thinks of things in a different way and is eccentric in the way he relates to people and the game, and he is absolutely extraordinary in the way he approached the job at Leeds. He watched all Leeds games, but not just Leeds games, games from all the teams in the Championship to get to know players and teams and their ways of playing. He was then explaining how Leeds have been playing and how he could make them better.

Open the full version

"He does right in leaving early - as he did at Lazio and Lille - if he feels he is not going to be understood. I have the impression that there are enough people there who understand what he is trying to do.

"Leeds have taken a risk, there is no doubt after it. Leeds fans have to understand what is being done so they have to be pro-active in their approach to the game and enjoy the journey. It's not just seeing the result, try to understand why things happen, and he will explain. Leeds fans are in for a treat. It is the kind of approach that can take a while to settle."

'It was his way to test me'

Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani

"He didn't pick up the call so we left a voicemail. When we called the next day he had already watched seven Leeds games. That was a good sign. He asked to have the opportunity to meet me in Argentina, which I think was also a way to test me to see if I was really keen. I took the plane to Argentina for 24 hours. It was a good day, we spent about 10 hours in the meeting room, learning about his mentality and his philosophy of football."

'He had drawings of the training ground'

Leeds managing director Angus Kinnear

"He has made a massive impact in a very short time and it has been felt through all levels of the club in terms of the standards he has imposed. I don't think I've met a manager, aside from Arsene Wenger, who is so clear on their football philosophy and so definitive with what they want. He is very demanding, there is definitely a sense around the training ground that he is not a man to be messed with.

New Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa during a press conference at Elland Road
"One of the unusual things in the interview process was he had drawings of the whole training ground and he had updated them with how he thought the training ground had to work from a technical perspective to work with his football philosophy."

'The project is like Wolves'

Leeds winger Stuart Dallas: "He wants us to play quick, attacking football but also be aggressive when we are defending, on the front foot, first and second balls, and press high up the pitch. The boys have bought into it."

New signing Barry Douglas: "The project here is similar to what was happening at Wolves last season and that's very exciting. The way the manager is speaking about playing is going to suit me down to a T so hopefully we can complement each other and have success together.

Barry Douglas has joined Leeds from Wolves
New signing Patrick Bamford: "I could see the project. I knew Victor Orta [Leeds director of football] from his time at Middlesbrough and he explained the philosophy and the idea behind bringing the new manager in and the kind of football they wanted to achieve and that sold it to be straight away."

Jack Harrison, on loan at Leeds from Manchester City: "It seemed like a great opportunity to work with Marcelo. I have heard a bit about him and spoken with Pep about him and it's interesting to see the similarities between their ideas and philosophies.

'It will be a big challenge'

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino, who played under Bielsa at Newell's Old Boys, Espanyol and Argentina.

"Marcelo is a great coach. I wish all the best to him. It will be tough to adapt his methodology to Leeds because he needs time. It will be a big challenge for him and he deserves to be in one of the best leagues. Of course Leeds is a big club and I hope that he brings Leeds to the Premier League and will be a fantastic success.

"I can talk very well about Marcelo because I know him from the age of 13. No-one can talk about him better, and that is a privilege to share a lot of years together with him. He was my coach for many years at different clubs. He will bring his football and his character and personality and I wish him all the best."

Bielsa worked with Pochettino (2nd from left) as Argentina coach
'He discovered Poch while he was sleeping'

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague

"Marcelo Bielsa discovered Mauricio Pochettino when he was asleep. There's a famous story that Bielsa decided with the technical director of Newell's Old Boys that they wanted the best youth around and they would travel everywhere in Argentina looking for talent.

"They did trials in the area where Pochettino lived and he couldn't make it. Somebody said afterwards 'you've haven't seen the best player, this centre-back who is 14 or 15'. It was 1am but Bielsa said let's go and they got to his house very late and knocked at the door. Pochettino's mum answered and then his dad, and Bielsa said 'we just want to see your son.'

"'Where is he? Sleeping? Can we see him?' 'Yes, this is the bedroom'…Bielsa says can I see his legs, so the blanket was moved around, and he says 'yes, a footballer's legs, he will be an international'.

Marcelo Bielsa discovered Mauricio Pochettino when he was asleep.
Guillem Balague
"Pochettino had no idea about this but went to a trial because he realised Bielsa wanted him. After five minutes at the trial Bielsa said 'OK, you can go'. Bielsa said go to the offices of Newell's Old Boys and sign for us.

"In the period between when he retired as a player and became a coach, Pep Guardiola travelled to Argentina and sat in Bielsa's villa, talking non-stop for 11 hours. They went through football, to the cinema, to arts, back to football. From that they developed a respect for each other which you can see when they talk about each other."

Bielsas filosofi er ikke særlig revolusjonerende lenger. Det er utallige trenere som har kopiert og videreutviklet den. Det er nok først og fremst implementering av en Bielsakultur vi skal feste vår lit til, dvs at et langtidsperspektiv er veldig sentralt her. Jeg tror dessverre at alle de som forventer en revolusjon og opprykk denne sesongen blir skuffet. Kanskje neste esong, eller den som kommer etter.

Tja..det er jo lag med dårligere stall enn oss som har rykket opp til PL? Blackpool, Burnley og ikke minst Derby som satte negativ poengrekord i PL sesongen etter opprykk. Flyt, stang inn, og treneraura betyr litt... er positiv for første gang på mange år..

«Senere gikk ferden til Lazio. Der trakk han seg etter kun to dager i klubben ettersom han var misfornøyd med manglende signeringer. 18 spillere hadde nemlig forlatt klubben ved sesongslutt.»


Jeg tror de fleste hadde sagt opp på et slikt grunnlag om ikke fullgode erstattere ble satt inn!

Alt dette henger sammen ja. Man gjør seg fortjent til flaks. Innsats slår klasse!  Hardt arbeid er noe vi får med Bielsa. Vi får en gjeng som har trua på og er villige til å ofre alt for klubb og trener. Helt enig  :)

Leste en artikkel angående dette. Stallen skulle slankes, mye daukjøtt. Han ble lovet nye spillere, men ingen hadde sagt at det skulle finansieres med å selge de beste. Han ble løyet til. Han er ikke en som stikker uten grunn eller fordi han ikke får det som han vil.

Enig! Hvis nysigneringene slår til og laget kommer i flytsonen er alt mulig. Hvis Bielsastilen fungerer fra dag 1 kan det til og med hende at en notorisk målscorer trer frem fra stallen vi har per i dag (Bamford, Roofe, Roberts).

Det som bekymrer meg litt med Bielsas stil er det flere har vært inne på tidligere: det er en intens spillestil som er krevende å holde gående i 46 kamper med en stall som kanskje mangler litt bredde.

Tror du har rett i det. Det tar tid å bygge opp igjen en klubb. Jeg ser PL i det fjerne. Kanskje det er like greit å skynde seg sakte, at klubben er bedre rustet om to-tre år?

Jeg er fornøyd med solid fremgang og et lag som jobber knallhardt hver eneste kamp. Et lag som selv på dårlige dager fremstår samlet med bra innsats. Bare det er enorm fremgang...

Joda - Stoke, Derby, Swansea, Boro, Forest og kanskje Brentford blir alle vanskelige å hamle opp med. Ut fra signeringer og historikk blir det tøft for Leeds å rykke opp, men som DHY er inne på kan vi med maks flyt blande oss inn helt i toppen.

Hvis dette (som mot Stoke) fortsetter så har Rad truffet med headcoachen denne gangen. Hvis spillerene følger Bielsas taktikk så kommer vi meget høyt på tabellen . Vi banket faktisk Stoke, seriefavoritten. Husk at vi spilte med samme lag som PH hadde!! Plutselig var "alle" gode!! Uten Pontus og Bamford.

Med Bielsa som trener trenger vi ikke kjempedyre spillere. Vi trenger ok spillere som gjør som Bielsa sier. Kravet om kvalitet på spillerene er ikke så prekært lenger når taktikeren Bielsa er kommet til Leeds.

Jeg sa riktignok at PH ikke fikk nok ut av mannskapet (for dårlig coach) , men jeg hadde aldri trodd det bodde SÃ… mye i disse spillerne!!

Ja. jeg fikk bakoversveis av kampen. De i SKY studio også. Det er sånn vi skal dominere på hjemmebane. 4-5 store sjanser i 1. omgang. Håper bare andre lag ikke finner mottrekk mot dette. Det blir enda bedre når de nye spillerne pluss  Pontus glir inn i laget.  :) :)

ja. vi har nok vært for mange som ha sutret over kvaliteten på spillere, kanskje. Og lagt skylda på Orta. Det vi trenger er tydeligvis en coach som trykker på de rette knappene!! I dag virket det som om spillerne var villig til å dø for treneren sin. Spillerne glødet. Slik skal det være på hjemmebane i premieren.  :)

For å helle litt kaldt vann i blodet oppi gleden. Vi ble svake da Crouch endret banen. Enhver lang ball mot han laget kaos bak hos oss. Allen burde definitivt scoret på slutten der. Jeg mener Bielsa burde svart på den fra Rowett ganske umiddelbart ved å sende innpå Pontus for Berardi.

Enig. Skjønte lite av byttene til Bielsa på tampen. Klich var kanskje tom, men Berardi ble jo knust hver gang mot Crouch og lagde frispark i farlig posisjon. Merkelig at ikke Bielsa hev innpå Pontus.

Man skulle tro at Bielsa kjente til Crouch's styrker, så nøye som han er. Min teori er at Bielsa ville at Leeds skulle fortsette agressivt press og få tak i ballen ute på banen. Stoke hadde ballen mer i 2. omg.  Det var noe han var misfornøyd med,  sa han etter kampen. Det virker som forsvarsspillet forgår ute på midtbanen i Bielsas hode. Derav kanskje disse byttene med Baker, Harris og Dallas.

Likte byttene på slutten. Mest sannsynlig for å fortsette høyt press, og dermed få Stoke mindre på vår banehalvdal. Funka ikke helt, men tanken bak det er glimrende.  Vanligvis ville en manager her ha putta inn en forsvarer, og tatt ut en offansiv en. Dermed sørge for at vi blir baktunge på slutten av kampene

Tja, Berardi hadde hatt en god kamp og kollektivet i backlinja hadde fungert veldig bra. Også Pontus hadde nok blitt knust av Crouch i lufta. Det mest naturlige hadde vært å sette Cooper på Crouch. En rusten Pontus med innbytterpuls og høy tenning kunne nok gitt noen frispark i mot han også.

Jansson langt bedre forutsetninger til å løse det enn Berardi. Crouch fikk jo gjøre akkurat som han ville. Pontus ville gitt langt mer motstand i lufta. Synes ikke byttene ga nevneverdig effekt. De to siste kom jo veldig seint, men Dallas inn hjalp oss ingenting.

Klich sliten så Dallas inn sier seg selv for meg. Vi har vel ingen andre å sette inn der. Jansson inn for berra mener du? Eller i tilegg til de 2 andre stopperne? Vanskelig i ettertid å si hva som hadde vært en bedre løsning. Det får vi aldri svar på. Men enig i at jansson ville gitt crouch mer kamp i duellene.

Janssons styrke har aldri vært å vinne hodedueller mot fyrtårn. Det var også veldig tydelig den ene hele kampen han spilte i VM. Hans største styrke er først og fremst å rense unna baller i kritisk sone. . Tipper han hadde vært like hjelpesløs vs Crouch i luftduellene som Berardi var.

Store problemet var vel at Stoke kom i overtall i gode posisjoner der de kunne sette opp Crouch.
Vi var tomme for krefter på midten. Innbytte av Dallas gav liten effekt. Han er en kantspiller/back. God løpskraft erstatter ikke alltid posisjonering og kløkt.
Den corneren de nesten scorer på skaper vi selv med dårlig kommunikasjon mellom Bailey og Berardi. Der skal Bailey være offensiv og ut å rydde unna så slipper vi corner i mot.
Bortsett fra tabben hadde Berardi en bra kamp. Om Pontus hadde vunnet den duellen blir spekulativt. Mest sannsynlig ikke. Vanskelig for stopper å vinne en slik duell med den vinkelen på pasningen. I tillegg står jo fyren på stylter.

Synd vi ikke satt siste kontringen rett etter corneren.
Tror vi kan vinne mye poeng der på bortebane denne sesongen.
Mye bedre løpsmønster og trøkk enn i fjor. Da løp jo 3 spillere i samme retning.

Liker også at vi så det velkjente "triangel" spillet Bielsa er kjent for ved flere anledninger i går.
Mange fysisk sterke CC lag som skal få problemer med det.

Det kan selvsagt argumenteres med at Pontus burde tatt seg av Crouch og at Bielsa viste en slags svakhet her. Ved neste anledning er Pontus trolig i på plass mot store hodespillere uansett.

Men jeg tror ikke Bielsa er typen til å sette frimerke på enkelt spillere. Han er litt som Drillo: studerer hvordan motstander som  lag spiller fotball uten å vektlegge enkeltspillere. Og legger opp takktikk etter det. Mot Stoke valgte han løpskraft på midtbanen fremfor en god spiller mot Crouch.  Er det en blunder eller et taktisk bevisst valg? Jeg tror det siste.

Og hvis Berardi var drillet inn i Bielsas systen siste 6 uker så var det kanskje lurt å la han være på banen. Plasserings messig var han god i forsvar.

Jeg tenker at byttet av Klich var «politisk». Bielsa ville vise at klubben mangler en sentral midtbanespiller ALA Wood. Håper en til kommer inn.

At Pontus ble på benken var ikke så rart! Bielsa hadde sagt at Pontus neppe ville spille pga kort tid i klubben. Bielsa er sta, slik ble det.

Hvorfor Douglas spilte så vi greit. Han var stor på kanten.

Godt å ha kavaleriet i bakhånd så tidlig i sesongen.

Uten Pontus, Forshaw og Bamford (en hel sentrallinje i seg selv) slår vi en opprykksfavoritt!

Det tror jeg du kan ha rett i, det jeg reagerer på da er om det betyr at ikke Baker vurderes som en som kan ha den rollen som Klich har, om han kun vurderes som en konkurrent til Saiz? Og betyr det at Pablo primært vurderes som kantspiller? At det er Saiz og Baker som kjemper om den rollen sentralt?

Jeg tviler på at Bielsa ville risikert noe som helst ved å hive innpå en spiller han ikke ville ha innpå, så dette var neppe politisk. Han kommuniserer da daglig med ledelsen uten å måtte gamble med innbytterne sine. Forøvrig er Pablo Hernandez primært kantspiller og har hovedsaklig vært klassifisert som kantspiller gjennom karrieren sin

Baker burde kommet inn for Klich, Dallas er bare kant og knapt nok det... han ble avslørt med ball mot mål på siste kontring der han ble løpt opp og tatt fra ball også.
Berardi og Stuart er squadplayers fra no 14 med den troppen vi har nå... og med enda 2-3 mann inn så er d kun plass til 1 av de på benken :-X

Her må jeg korrigere deg litt...

Ja, Dallas ble løpt opp og fikk to spillere på seg. Dersom du sjekker highlighs, vil du faktisk se at han tross det fikk lagt inn foran mål.  :)

Han fikk til kontringen like bra som de to Cruyff vendingene han forsøkte seg på...mislykket!

Han ble i alle fall ikke fratatt ballen som det hevdes.  ;)

Fra fri bane mot mål endte han opp i en  1 mot 2 situasjon. Sistnevnte situasjon løste han bra  ;)

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa declares himself happy with transfer business

Phil Hay
Published: 18:03 Thursday 09 August 2018
Marcelo Bielsa declared himself happy with Leeds United’s transfer business as the EFL’s permanent deadline passed tonight without any new arrivals at Elland Road.


Leeds’ search for further additions to their squad will continue until the August 31 cut-off date set by the EFL for loan deals after the club stepped back from the scramble to complete full-time transfers before 5pm this evening.

 Marcelo Bielsa.
Marcelo Bielsa.
United sealed five signings in the permanent window, including the £3m purchase of Barry Douglas from Wolverhampton Wanderers and the £7m capture of striker Patrick Bamford from Middlesbrough, but the club are still assessing options at centre-back and in midfield with three weeks left before the EFL draws a line under all moves until January.

Bielsa has overseen major alterations to the wider squad at Thorp Arch with no fewer than 13 departures so far, among them the £7.7m sale of Ronaldo Vieira to Sampdoria. Eunan O’Kane and Caleb Ekuban, both of whom are surplus to requirements, remain on the books having failed to attract any permanent offers on deadline day but could now move out on a temporary basis.

Leeds have a loan offer on the table for Everton centre-back Matthew Pennington, the defender who spent last season at Elland Road, but Everton are weighing up other options amid rival interest and Pennington did not depart Goodison Park today.

Asked if the deals completed by Leeds would allow him to maintain the standard of performance seen in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Stoke, Bielsa said: “I am happy. To keep the intensity is the goal but we’ll have to show that we can do this every game.”

Why Leeds United can still sign players after the transfer window has closed

Vieira was the most high-profile exit from Elland Road, a transfer which owner Andrea Radrizzani approved for financial reasons, but Leeds emerged from the permanent window without encountering serious interest in Sweden international Pontus Jansson, despite links to Burnley and West Ham United.

Bielsa admitted he would be pleased to see the back of the transfer window, saying: “I like it when things are clear. I don’t like periods when we have uncertainty.”

Leeds made an impressive start to the Bielsa’s reign as head coach with a fluent defeat of Stoke City last weekend and will attempt to claim a second victory from two games away at Derby County on Saturday.

Bielsa voiced satisfaction with the performance against Stoke, saying: “The game had many ups and downs and we dominated most of it. We respected our philosophy of play during most of the game.

“The two aspects that characterised us more is that we got the ball back very fast and we made many passes building from the back before finishing the action. If we respect these two aspects then I can get the right level of the team.”

Leeds United & Marcelo Bielsa Documentary

Unique Approach

Is sixty three year old Marcelo Bielsa the man to bring the glory days back to Leeds United.  Bielsas coaching approach to sessions is very interesting, but for fans perhaps two other points will sit better with them as examples of the mans unique approach.

1. He cut short his holiday to spend a week watching every single minute of Leeds United's games last year before pre season had even been planned out. He had every member of the squad remaining at the clubs individual clips from every EPL game sent to him to build a player profile on each one.

2. As an physiological exercise he made players spend three hours cleaning up around the training centre to give them an insight into working three hours outside of football, Bielsa figured that three hours equated to the time and work it takes fans to afford a ticket to a home game, he wanted players to understand how hard these fans work to sit and watch them play of a Saturday.


Fascinating Doccumentary

Below is the fascinating documentary by Sky Sports Football giving a great insight into the approach of Marcelo Bielsa early on at Leeds United.

Bielsa expects them to get a decent amount of game time this season. "You always have players missing for injuries or because they were sent off. Then, the youngsters go to the group of 18 players. To be in that group means you can play."

It was also mentioned earlier in the summer that Bielsa was always open to players moving from one group to another if it seems fitting, so if players don't perform they'll drop out and the likes of Clarke, Nicell, Edmonson and Struijk could move up.  #lufc

Jeg har tenkt på det samme. Drillo forvandlet en gjeng ok spillere (og noen få stjerner) fra et lag uten mål og mening til et lag med VM status etter 1990. Takket være organisering og klokskap.

Kompetanse hos treneren er nøkkelord her. Jo mer Leeds vinner , jo sterkere vil troen på taktikken være.

Det eneste som kan spille Leeds et puss er svikt i fysisk form (utbrenthet) eller skader. Vi må regne med at spillerne har dårlige dager i blant .

Det fine er at vi spiller samme agressive spill selv om vi leder 4-1, slik Ian Halloway bemerket i kveld. Vi har ligaens beste coach.!!!

For å komme gjennom en hel sesong på nivået som Bielsa ønsker, blir som en maraton. Vi trenger å utnytte hele stallen og flere av  under-23-gjengen. Prosjektet ser lovende ut så langt.

Det er vanskelig for våre motstandere å finne mottrekk for taktikken og arbeidsmoralen til Bielsa. Dette fungerer faktisk! Og dersom spillerne stoler på at dette fungerer, kan vi nå langt.

Ja, faktisk, in Bielsa I trust.

Why El Loco is the football hipsters’ choice

The New European
PUBLISHED: 16:40 10 August 2018

As the new season kicks-off JAMES BROWN looks at an unexpectedly exotic managerial appointment which offers a ray of hope for his club.

Not since Kevin Keegan went to lower league Fulham or European Cup-winner Rafa Benitez dropped into the Championship to get Newcastle United promoted has the world of non-Premier League football been lit up by such an extraordinary appointment as the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa, the former Argentina and Chile coach, at fallen giants Leeds United. But even such an audacious appointment needs to be backed with signings.

There was a photo doing the rounds on Twitter recently that pretty much sums up the lot of the transfer-starved football fan desperate for new arrivals at their club. The picture was of Andrea Radrizzani, the Leeds chairman, asking a young fan with an autograph book, “what should I sign?” To which the kid replies “at this stage just about anyone will do”. Radrizzani took the hint and swiftly acquired last season’s leading left back in the division, Barry Douglas, from Wolves, and then striker Patrick Bamford from Middlesbrough and a young winger on loan from Manchester City, Jack Harrison.

All managers and fans who know anything about the game will tell you it’s easier to be promoted by having better players than the other team. It’s simple stuff. Hence the frustration when you don’t improve on the playing squad that under-achieved the year before. There is occasionally another route, though: the coach that inspires average players to success. Much-travelled Neil Warnock achieved this feat at Cardiff City last season.

His former club Leeds have given themselves a similar possibility of success and promotion out of the second tier into the promised land with the appointment of Bielsa, a man two of the leading managers in world football, Pep Guardiola of Premier League champions Manchester City and Mauricio Pochettino of pretenders to the throne Tottenham Hotspur, consider to be the one of the most influential coaches in the game. The Argentine Bielsa has built a reputation for advanced intellectual player analysis through, among other things, enormous player-video consumption. He takes the time to know everything about the players to hand, and then works out how he can improve them.

Not having cast my eyes much further than the away grounds of Brentford, Derby County and Bristol City in recent years, when Bielsa was appointed I held my hand up and said: “I’ve never heard of him.” When talkSPORT breakfast host Alan Brazil did pretty much the same, he was hung, drawn and quartered on Twitter, where Bielsa’s appointment received a positively volcanic reaction among the world of Mundial magazine-reading football hipsters. In terms of response, it was a little like when the original Star Wars stars reappeared as older versions of themselves in The Force Awakens.

The reaction ranged from utter disbelief and mockery at such an idea to simple awe. This is, after all, a club who the FT recently listed as one of the great fallen giants of European football; who have quietly slipped out of the chaotic reign of the previous owner Massimo Cellino who appointed a footballing nobody in David Hockaday – a likeable but virtually anonymous youth man, as his first coach. He later refused to allow any player to wear the number 17, and asked the father of a potential new recruit to remove his shirt during a meeting because it was purple, both for superstitious reasons.

The club is now on better footing but for the new owner, Radrizanni, this is still his third manager in a year. To me the appointment felt a little like Jock Stein’s little-known 44-day stay in the manager’s office at Elland Road in 1978. A managerial great who was possibly past his best. Despite being an eye-catching appointment, it’s a while since Bielsa has enjoyed sustained success and he left his most recent jobs at Lille and Lazio after 13 games and two days respectively.

His acclaim is not without foundation though. The highly-regarded Leeds United correspondent of the Yorkshire Evening Post, Phil Hay, has described Bielsa as “the godfather of modern, intellectual football” and no-one has gone into bat against this opinion, yet.

Bielsa established his reputation in South America, where his passionate desire for football at its finest, and the lengths he went to show that love, won him the nickname El Loco. Anyone who has ever seen a spaghetti western won’t need a translation here.

You don’t have to do too much to be considered an outsider in football, as Eric Cantona proved, but Bielsa has both genuine success and eccentricity to his name. He made his name with Newell’s Old Boys in Rosario, the city he grew up in among a family of academics, winning the Argentine league ahead of more fancied opponents. Rosario is also the birthplace of both Lionel Messi and Che Guevara, men whose status combined could almost reach the esteem Bielsa is held in locally for delivering them the league.

He managed the Argentine national side for six years between 1998 and 2004, coaching a generation of stars, including Diego Simeone, the manager of serial Europa Cup winners Atletico Madrid, former Real Madrid left back Gabriel Heinze and legendary centre forward Gabriel Batistuta, all of whom have been keen to praise his influence when asked. He went on to manage Chile, getting them to the World Cup, after two tournament absences. Bielsa established his credentials even further in Europe with a successful two-year period at Athletic Bilbao, playing remarkable football to knock Manchester United out of the Europa League in 2012. Bilbao were clapped from the pitch by United fans, who are unlikely to extend the same courtesy should Leeds ever reappear at Old Trafford.

If his tactics and vision have been put to more productive effect by his former pupils, his reputation for doing things differently lives on. He is an enigma who refuses one-on-one interviews, but is happy to host two hour-long press conferences after games. He is said to have responded to irate fans who came to his house by approaching them with a live hand grenade and has been known to discuss the fortunes of his teams in tears.

Since his arrival he had been taking a crash course in both English and Yorkshire. He’s been seen with a DVD of Ken Loach peak-Yorkshire epic Kes at an away friendly in Oxford, has sung the praises of the Yorkshire Dales and in an attempt to keep the county tidy and show his pampered players what real hard work is like he’s had them spending hours picking up litter at their training ground. His first game – a 3-1 victory over Championship favourites Stoke City – was so impressive one rival fan questioned whether it was actually Barcelona playing in white.

Passionate, professional, unpredictable and provocative, if Bielsa sticks around long enough to make a lasting impact he could just be what Leeds and the Championship needs.

Han swiper opp bak der på et nivå som ingen andre gjør. Skjønner godt at Bielsa liker han. Blir jo morsomt å følge om han klarer å holde konsentrasjonen oppe når det begynner å dra seg til.
På den andre side. Er jo helt hinsides at han ikke får frispark mot seg i noen av hode duellene med Waghorn.
Er det de driver med noen av de dommerene? Løper de for langt unna situasjonene eller skorter det bare på spilleforståelse?

Are Leeds United going up? 20 Questions about Marcelo Bielsa answered

Leeds United's 4-1 defeat of Derby has got the world of football Loco for El Loco.

Nestor WatachAug 13, 2018
Action Images/Alan Walter

After defeating Stoke 3-1 in the opening weekend of the Championship, there were murmurings that Marcelo Bielsa would be delivering something special at Leeds United.

The hype subsequently went into overdrive when they followed that up with an even better performance, going to Pride Park and thrashing Frank Lampard’s Derby 4-1.

Be it his idiosyncratic interviews, the emphatic performances matched by the scorelines or the clips of intricate passing football clipped and shared by tactics nerds, people are sitting up and taking notice of a sleeping giant, the second tier of English football, and one of the most fascinating figures in the game.

Here’s everything you need to know about Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United so far:

Bielsa’s barely won anything. Why does everyone rave about him?

Because his emphasis on Positional Play has paved the way for so much of what we see in top-level football. Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona. Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur. Jorge Sampaoli’s Chile team from a few years back.

In fact, Bielsa himself laid the foundations for the Chile team that captured hearts and minds at the 2014 World Cup and won two consecutive Copa America.

Elsewhere, his Athletic Club demolished Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in the Europa League and his Newell’s Old Boys are in the pantheon of great South American teams.

The end result might not be silverware but people fall in love with his football. 

Some pundits, including former Leeds manager Steve Evans, suggested Leeds would have been better getting a manager who “knows the league”, such as Mick McCarthy. Were they wrong?

Unequivocally, yes. Regardless of Bielsa, the likes of Rafael Benitez, David Wagner and Nuno Espirito Di Santo have disproven this idea in recent years. A quality coach with tactical nous is more important than experience of the league.

Leeds tried that with Neil Warnock, the most proven coach at this level and he parted company with a team miles from the play-offs, playing some of the most turgid football in living memory. He also left a rotten squad behind that took years to fumigate.

It's only been two games. Isn't it too early to make that judgement?

Fans have a right to get excited because a coach of international repute has produced arguably the best performances from Leeds since they were relegated from the Premier League in 2004.

It's a certainty Mick McCarthy or Steve Bruce or any other "steady hand" could not have produced this kind of football, because they haven't done so in their entire careers.

But Leeds started last season well too and then they finished 13th?

Yes, but with hindsight that was clearly a false dawn. Top after seven games, they only beat poor bottom-half teams; Bolton, Sunderland, Forest, Burton and Birmingham.

The performances, while functional then, were light-years away from this. So far, Bielsa has made easy work of Stoke (the bookies favourites for first place) and Derby (in the play-offs last season). It's a big difference.

The club has done plenty of business in the summer, could that not be the difference?

No. Bielsa has largely started the same players from last season, those that only won three games out of fifteen under Paul Heckingbottom.

Only Barry Douglas from Wolves, and Mateusz Klich, back from a loan at FC Utrecht, are any different.

But there are lots of new signings. When can we expect to see them?

Tomorrow, most likely. The League Cup fixture against Bolton presents Bielsa with an opportunity to rotate.

Expect to see him use Jamal Blackman and Lewis Baker, both on loan from Chelsea, Jack Harrison on loan from Manchester City, and Patrick Bamford, Leeds most expensive signing since Robbie Fowler in 2003.

Is Pontus Jansson still a standout at the back?

No, he's not played yet. After coming back late following Sweden's World Cup, Gaetano Berardi took his spot in the back four and played so well against Stoke that he retained his place against Derby.

Who have been the most outstanding players?

Almost everyone has done well.

Kemar Roofe has led the line brilliantly. His movement and work-rate were so good against Stoke that he was awarded Man of the Match. He followed that up with two well-taken goals against Derby. It will take a lot for Bamford to take his place.

 

To a man, the four behind him — Samuel Saiz, Ezgjan Alioski, Pablo Hernandez and Mateusz Klich — have been excellent, too. Barry Douglas and Luke Ayling are underlining their case as the best pair of full-backs in the league.

Have they really been that amazing?

Yes. It really is difficult to overstate quite how good Leeds have been. It wouldn't be exaggerating to say they've played with a level of sophistication seldom seen in the second tier.

The controlled aggression and intensity of the pressing is a Bielsa hallmark but there's so much to admire in possession too: playing it from front-to-back, attacking with versatility, and the precision of the passing.

Is he still using his famous patented 3-3-1-3 system?

Not yet. He's experimented with variants of it in pre-season and, when he named the line-up for the first game of the season, there was speculation it could work that way, especially as Kalvin Phillips had played as a ball-player in the middle of a back three in the final pre-season friendly against Las Palmas.

So far, though, it's been a 4-1-4-1 system with Phillips bridging the gap between the back four and midfield.

We may see it appear later in the season, especially once Adam Forshaw returns or another defensive midfielder arrives on loan.

Are there any doubts?

Not doubts per se but, after just two games, there will be other hurdles to jump.

With players like Mason Mount and Joe Allen, teams like Derby and Stoke have attempted to play football which has played into Leeds hands and allowed them space work in. There are plenty of agricultural teams in the Championship and last season Leeds fell apart when Neil Harris's robust Millwall bullied them.

 Action Images/Alan Walter

They will need to show that such methods won't phase them anymore. With hype and expectation comes a new challenge: will Leeds become frustrated if teams are defensive and look to play two deep banks of four in order to counteract Leeds technical quality?

When the Championship really gets going come the winter and there are regularly two games a week, that's another question to answer — can Leeds continue playing to this standard?

Any doubts with the players?

Bailey Peacock-Farrell in goal was poor to allow Derby to score. Tom Lawrence's free-kick was whipped in with pace but he allowed it to go straight through him. There were also a couple of unconvincing moments against Stoke.

Chelsea's Jamal Blackman was impressive on loan at Sheffield United last season and is waiting in the wings. It appears a matter of time before he takes over.

Don't Bielsa's teams always burn-out at the end of the season? Is that a worry?

There's no denying that. But that's something to face if and when it comes.

We're now in August and that's a long way away. If Leeds can keep this up, they should be promoted before a potential collapse.

There's also genuine depth to the squad and the two-week international breaks (without that many international players) should allow for rest and recuperation.

How has he managed to get them playing like this so quickly?

That's the big question. Outside of witchcraft, it could be changing the culture at the club.

For example, putting an emphasis on dedication and training, often with the players at the Thorp Arch training ground from 9am until 8pm, has clearly paid off. With an obsession with eliminating body fat and general fitness, the players will be equipped to carry out his gameplan.

Beyond this, insider Dave Hynter of the Guardian detailed how the players had to pick up litter for three hours to empathise with the work fans do in order to buy a match ticket.

I'd like to see Paul Heckingbottom try getting the Leeds players to litter pick.

There's a point in that. Marcelo Bielsa comes with a reputation and natural authority.

This isn't just another hopeful punt on a leftfield manager and expendable presence on the touchline. He comes backed by the board and the players don't have a choice but to buy into his methods. When they see the results they yield, it will only become easier.

 Action Images/John Clifton

Bielsa has earned that reputation: just as Zinedine Zidane earned his, in a different way, before becoming coach at Real Madrid. Players just listen to such figures.

If Bielsa’s so amazing, why hasn’t a Premier League club come in for him?

Because he’s very demanding of owners and potentially volatile.

If backed, there’s no telling what he could achieve at a club with the potential of a Newcastle, Everton or West Ham.

But owners don’t look at the ceiling, they look at the floor and, with Bielsa walking out of Lazio after two days or embroiling Lille in a relegation battle, they understandably fear the worst.

Those who run Premier League clubs want to avoid relegation above all else and the idea of Mike Ashley or David Gold giving him free reign to mould the clubs in his image is laughable.

Could it not blow up at Leeds?

With Bielsa, there's always a danger of things blowing up but the board and manager appear to be on the same wavelength at present.

He has been backed in the transfer market and, after extensive meetings, it's clear that chairman Andrea Radrizzani and director of football Victor Orta believe in his methods. It's only positive signs so far.

How did Leeds manage to get such a respected coach?

By showing they were serious. When Bielsa became aware of the club's interest, he tested their dedication by demanding the club's hierarchy fly out to meet with him in Argentina. After doing so and after hours of discussions on strategy and philosophy, he was convinced .

Bielsa has since spoken of his respect for Leeds as an institution with a certain amount of self-deprecation, saying “I think I’m at a club that’s bigger than I deserve.”

What's with the bucket?

Just a quirk of how he likes to view games from the sidelines and nothing new.

Many will remember the time he sat on a cup of coffee, placed on a cooler box, in his time at Marseille.

So, are Leeds finally going up then?

It's too early to say. Leeds fans are just enjoying the positivity. But it's hard not to notice the bookies making them favourites for promotion.

Even Fabio Capello is 'passionate' about the Marcelo Bielsa project at Leeds United - Leeds Live


Marcelo Bielsa’s start to life in English football would not have come as too much of a surprise to two of the Premier League coaches who studied his methods.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, a Premier League winner, and Tottenham Hostpur manager Mauricio Pochettino both dubbed the Argentine as ‘one of the best coaches in the world’ upon his appointment at Leeds this summer.


Therefore, it is no surprise to see another of the world’s most respected coaches singing his praises.


After seeing the emphatic way he’s made his mark on the Championship, former England boss Fabio Capello could not contain his excitement for how far he believes Bielsa could take the Whites this season, describing him as ‘a volcano of ideas.’

He took to his column for Gazzetta dello Sport, reported by Sportwitness, with his comments on Bielsa and the Whites.

United have comfortably dispatched title and promotion favourites Stoke City and Derby County in the first two league games of Bielsa’s tenure and he extended it to three wins in three last night.


Capello admitted he was intrigued to see how the 63-year-old progresses with the club this season and was full of praise for his methods after an encounter with Bielsa in Brazil.


“I am passionate to see what Bielsa will do at Leeds, in the English Championship,” said Capello.

“I met him in Brazil and he’s really a special character. He has a beautiful brain and is a volcano of ideas. A real Loco, he intrigues me.”

Can we have a proper conversation about Bielsa’s bucket? I mean, what is it *really*? Some sort of cone or marker used in training? Or a purpose-built stool? And is it hard plastic or cushioned fabric? It’s great to be talking about football matters again. #LUFC

Dette er den sykeste ansettelsen på nivå to i hvilket som helst land i hele verden, ever!  :o

Nå venter jeg bare på klassesigneringene som skal følge opp denne ansettelsen.
Er rimelig sikker på at Bielsa ikke hadde signert uten sånne forsikringer.

Eller så liker han å jobbe med potensialet i spillere.. Nå har jeg ikke lest meg opp på hva han har gjort før på den fronten, men tenker at filosofien hans også kan fungere på eksisterende spillere. Om han er så god som det sies, så bør han klare å få ut mer av dagens stall, med litt justeringer såklart.

THE ARCHITECT
http://www.goal.com/story/bielsathearchitect/index.html
By Peter Staunton
 
The Juan Pinto Duran Sports Complex in Santiago is the headquarters for Chile’s national football team. In 2007 Marcelo Bielsa was appointed as head coach. This is a manager who’d been around the world, spent time around the best facilities the sport could offer. Pinto Duran could not be said to count among them.

The showers were often cold. Single beds and old television sets in the players’ quarters. The head of the Chilean FA at the time was Harold Mayne-Nicholls. He gave his word that the compound would be fixed up and brought into line with the standards Bielsa expected.

The new coach oversaw the renovations all the way down to the signage which would - from that point on - feature a font Bielsa liked when he first saw it at Santiago Zoo. The beds got bigger. The TVs had plasma screens. There would be better bathrooms with more reliable showers, air-conditioning and heating. There was a spa, and a modernised gym and dressing rooms.

And for Chile’s stars who travelled across the Atlantic for international duty, a magic machine that they could walk into fully clothed and walk out of just a few minutes later alleviated of the drowsiness brought on by jetlag.

It was paid for – in part – by Bielsa himself, through the fees he commanded for guest-speaking appearances.

Bielsa’s own quarters were not lavish. A simple six-metre squared living space with a crucifix hanging over the bed which later fell down after an earthquake. There was air-conditioning, a TV, a small cupboard and a toilet. Spartan, sufficient.

And Marcelo Bielsa lived there for 42 months.

In his three-and-a-half-year spell in charge of the Chile team, Bielsa transformed not only Pinto Duran but the collective psyche of a nation. Chile’s football team had been cowed for decades by an inferiority complex that meant they could never match regional powerhouses like Argentina or Brazil or, for that matter, those South American nations on the second rung like Uruguay or Colombia.

Chile only played one World Cup under Bielsa and lost to Brazil in the round of 16, but what he left behind you could not measure out only in victories or trophies. Chile won the 2015 Copa America on home soil for the first time ever. They won it again in 2016.

They won in 2015 under a coach in Jorge Sampaoli who was an avowed Bielsista and that victory would not have been possible without the players Bielsa blooded throughout his time in charge. Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and the rest of Chile’s golden generation took on the world thanks to the belief, discipline, courage and tactical blueprint that Bielsa gave them.

He’s already begun to make his mark at the Leeds United training facility at Thorp Arch with reports in the Guardian claiming that the players will soon have their own dormitories on site. Bielsa – typically for him – has a bed in his office and work days have been noticeably longer since he was installed as manager.


Work begins early and finishes late under Bielsa. His attention to detail is legendary – from his work out on the training field to his copious video analysis sessions.

“Every training session, he wants it to be perfect,” says Bill Tuiloma who played under Bielsa at Marseille.

“Every touch and every pass should be spot on. I think that helped me a lot to be focussed every day, to be prepared.”

Bielsa is renowned for repeating the same portion of a drill or exercise until the players get it right.

“It was intense,” says Tuiloma. “Really intense.”

(http://www.goal.com/story/bielsathearchitect/assets/pL3KvAWaDj/small1-750x1000.jpeg)

“Repeat after repeat of exercises, passing drills, then we’d go onto games and go into tactics and movements and everything like that.

“Movements off the ball, on the defensive side and then the attacking side. All the players were prepared and hungry to train.”

Tuiloma’s former Marseille team-mate Benjamin Mendy, who now plays under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, detailed recently for The Players’ Tribune Bielsa’s obsession with video preparation. The World Cup winner admitted having to be woken up to pay attention to his section of analysis before eventually being won over by its utility.

“He did like his videos,” says Tuiloma, who is now in MLS with the Portland Timbers.

“He liked everything perfect. He liked to make sure that we knew what we were going up against.

“[That] we’d know what movement they are doing, what players they have… we had to be spot on and be focussed and that helped us going into the game.

“His method of training and analysing other teams is spot on.”

(http://www.goal.com/story/bielsathearchitect/assets/MehpVEXZoP/small2-750x1000.jpeg)
 
Pep Guardiola agonised over becoming a coach in the first place. Before he signed on to coach Barcelona B he took a trip to Argentina to consult 11 or 12 faces in the game for advice on his next move. One of those was Bielsa.

Guardiola was known to be an admirer of the Argentine’s coaching methods, who, in turn, had been influenced by the kind of football Pep played when he was marshalling the midfield at Camp Nou.

A friend’s uncle in Europe would send him videos and magazines. He was particularly taken with the methods of Rinus Michels – and later Johan Cruyff – in Catalunya. He imported some of their techniques and is regarded as an offshoot of the high-press, greedy possession style that was perfected by the Dutch school in the 1970s.

Guardiola, Bielsa and a Spanish film director called David Trueba are known to have shared an 11-hour barbecue at Bielsa’s Rosario ranch, where the older man convinced the apprentice to take the plunge.

Pep, with two ex-Bielsa players in Mendy and Aymeric Laporte, has never been slow to acknowledge his respect. And this summer there was probably little chance of Leeds getting Jack Harrison on loan without Bielsa available at the other end to do the coaching.

“Leeds called me about Jack Harrison and we spoke with Jack,” Guardiola said. “He did so well in pre-season, I didn’t know him, and I was really impressed.

“Always I believe when you have space in the first team they have to stay. But if there is not enough space they have to play. And the best way is to play in the Premier League or the Championship.

“I know for the way Marcelo wants to play I think it’s perfect for his capacity. I’m really impressed for his quality.”

Leeds got off to a flyer on the opening weekend of the season by dismantling Stoke City at Elland Road where Bielsa’s style was very much in evidence. They followed that up with a 4-1 trouncing of promotion-chasing Derby County away from home.

“My admiration for Marcelo is incredible as a manager and as a person,” continued Pep.

“Hopefully, I am pretty sure in fact, he can do a good job here in England with Leeds. Football is open for different styles and different points of view.

“All the managers playing the same way would be really boring. To have Marcelo Bielsa in English football is so good.”

So many of Argentina’s football stars have had to fight their way out of abject poverty to reach the top against all odds. Bielsa’s upbringing could not be more different. His family were affluent, comfortable. His grandfather wrote much of Argentina’s Administrative Law. He has streets named after him in Buenos Aires and the family’s home town of Rosario.

The Bielsas were not - and still are not - a football family. Marcelo’s father was a lawyer. His brother Rafael is a former Minister of Foreign Affairs. His sister Maria served in government and she works as an architect. Not a football one, like Marcelo, but in a more traditional sense. The family had money and Marcelo didn’t need to become a football player. He wanted to.

He may not have had the skill or the technique, but he had the enthusiasm. Rosario’s big team, Newell’s Old Boys, featured Bielsa in its playing ranks for a while and his name would become synonymous with the club. Just not as a player.

Bielsa was always thinking ahead, making plans for a future when he was not going to be a professional player. He had some ideas on how the game should be played and was known as a serious man among his team-mates. He, along with a partner, ran a newspaper kiosk for 10 years and even delivered the papers himself.

But he was going to be a coach. Thanks to his brother’s connections at the University of Buenos Aires he got a job there coaching the men’s team. Among his most notable achievements was a draw against the Boca Juniors B team.

But Bielsa was destined to return to Rosario and put his theories into practice. He was given jurisdiction over various youth programmes and every one of his under-age teams ended up as champions at one level or another. He was put in charge of identifying players for the Newell’s youth sector.

Bielsa was afraid of flying and clocked up some 25,000 kilometres over three months in his Fiat 167 to try and get promising players to the club.

He divided Argentina up into 70 sectors and scoured them for talent. He turned up Gabriel Batistuta. Mauricio Pochettino was recruited after a tip from a local restaurateur.

 
Bielsa’s successes with these young players eventually yielded the top job in 1990. He transitioned seamlessly into the senior game taking his boys up with him. Newell’s won the Argentine title and qualified for the Copa Libertadores.

“Marcelo is like my father,” says Pochettino. “My second father. My relationship with him started when I was 12 or 13 years old. He's a great coach. I will always love him because he was a very important person in my career.”

Newell’s went all the way to the final of the Libertadores where they were beaten by Brazil’s Sao Paulo on penalties. But Bielsa’s reputation was off the ground and there was no going back.

During his time at Marseille – in 2014 – it was reported that Bielsa had donated some $2 million to Newell’s to renovate their player development facilities.

With his time at an end with the club it all began, Argentina coaching great Cesar Luis Menotti recommended Bielsa to Atlas of Guadalajara and off he went to Mexico.

One of his conditions for taking the job however was that he would be in charge only of the youth teams in his first year. Then he’d take over the seniors. Bielsa’s player identification and training programmes are still in use in some 92 Mexican cities.

At one stage in the 1990s it wouldn’t be unusual to look at the Mexico squad and see 10 or 11 of the 11,000 youngsters scouted by Bielsa for the Atlas talent factory. Rafael Marquez, Pavel Pardo and Oswaldo Sanchez are just some of the legendary names brought to fruition by Bielsa.

Results have sometimes been a mixed bag. He has won titles with Velez in his homeland for example but his time at Marseille, Lazio and Lille ended in farce. His tenure with the Argentina team was incredible for the kind of football he played and the sheer entertainment he provided. But they failed at World Cup 2002 and in the final of the Copa America in 2004. Olympic gold that same year was not enough for him to carry on.

 
Many fans in England will recall Bielsa for his intense spell in charge of Spanish side Athletic, where players like Ander Herrera and Javi Martinez developed an international reputation. Their beating of Manchester United at home in the 2012 Europa League will long be remembered.

His spell in the Basque country – like other places – burned out quickly. But there is no denying that when Bielsa’s enthusiasm and dedication to his work are matched with a club and a player’s receptiveness to take it all in then an uplift usually follows.

"All my words will be positive for him," says Pochettino. "My desire, my wish is that I hope he changes the reality of Leeds, brings them to the Premier League and does a fantastic job there."

Leeds fans have suffered so many twists and turns since suffering relegation from the Premier League in 2004 that they might not have the heart to get excited – yet – about promotion. But the raw material is there. Bielsa can design a plan to help them get back on top.

Det er mykje som peikar på at Leeds og Bielsa kan få eit gjensidig eventyr!

På toppen av pannen:
- Engasjement
- Ønske om å bevise
- Trur Bielsa likar tanken på å bli ei "legende" (noko han har veldig gode moglegheiter for i Leeds!)
- Potensiale for sportslig utvikling / potensiale for forming av eit lag og ein klubb

Jo jeg leste nøye og fikk med meg dette: Til tross for Bielsas geniale tilnærming til fotball har han ikke bare suksesshistorier i bagen, så langt der i fra. «Konklusjonen» var blant annet bygget på dette avsnittet: «His spell in the Basque country – like other places – burned out quickly. But there is no denying that when Bielsa’s enthusiasm and dedication to his work are matched with a club and a player’s receptiveness to take it all in then an uplift usually follows.«
Poenget med å nevne dette var å understreke at et geni kan ikke bygge klubb alene! Som alle andre er han avhengig av folka rundt seg og vi har ingen garanti for at dette vil ende som en suksesshistorie!

Nå etter litt over 2 mnd med Bielsa så blir grunnlaget for et nytt storlag lagt. Artikkelen jeg nettopp leste tyder på at uansett om Bielsa blir her 1,2 eller 3 år så legger han en ny kultur og et nytt opplegg som kommer oss til gode i mange mange år. Dette er herlig. Jeg kløyp meg i armen skikkelig hardt når Alioski skåret siste målet mot Derby å tenkte drømmer jeg?! Nei drømte ikke! Jeg bare begynte å gapskratte og tenkte så lykkelig har jeg ikke vært på mange mange år når det gjelder fotball og Leeds :-D

Vi kommer nok til å oppleve at ting ikke går på skinner, men uansett tror jeg at vi får oppleve langt flere dager med kamper som mot Derby enn slik vi hadde det siste halvdel av fjorårets sesong. Det er jeg 110 % sikker på.

At guden min er her er så fantastisk rått og deilig at det slår omtrent ALT. MOT back to premier league!!!!

Gordon Strachan lovpriser Bielsas start med Leeds.
https://news.paddypower.com/football/2018/08/17/gordon-strachan-leeds-united-marcelo-bielsa/ (https://news.paddypower.com/football/2018/08/17/gordon-strachan-leeds-united-marcelo-bielsa/)

The energy of Leeds United jumps out of the screen at you.

You’ve heard of 3D TV, well watching them is like 5D – the energy of that team screams out.

The energy, enjoyment and fun is obvious, you can tell that the Leeds players are playing with those just now.

It’s been a great start to the season and people say they might run out of steam, but who cares? If you’re 15-points ahead by April, you can afford to run out of it.

BIELSA IS AT EASE WITH HIMSELF
I like Marcelo Bielsa’s approach. He clearly backs himself and he’s a man completely at ease with himself, which not many managers have got.

Bielsa has clearly had this revolutionary idea of coaching his players and bringing some youth players in. He can improve the squad in January, if he needs, and spend the money then.

BUT, PERHAPS HIS BEST SIGNING IS THE BUCKET HE SITS ON. IT’S A GREAT BUCKET – HE REMINDS ME OF OOR WULLIE, A CARTOON CHARACTER IN SCOTLAND. I LOVE THAT!

We don’t see Bielsa’s coaching – and remember they started last year very well, too, with a high tempo, but he’s obviously a coach who tries things and I like that about him.

I always say to young coaches: try something and see if it works. If not, bin it, start again and blame the players.

DOUGLAS IS A GREAT SIGNING
Barry Douglas is the only one they’ve bought who’s started, really, which is a great signing.

He was a bit unfortunate, when he was in Poland and I was in Scotland manager, because I had four or five great left backs at the time.

I COULD’VE MADE A TEAM OUT OF LEFT BACKS!
He was fantastic at Wolves and he’ll be great at Leeds. He’s an intelligent signing.

Når Bielsa en eller annen gang slutter, må klubben ha en "arkitektur" som kan føre det han har oppnådd videre. At tankegangen og spillemåten ikke er avhengig av personen. Hvis ikke, risikerer vi bare å måtte starte på nytt igjen.

På lang sikt kan dette være lurt (å bytte på noen plasser). Men på kort sikt kan det få uheldige poengmessige konsekvenser (tenker da på Phillps).

Helt enig. Kampprogrammet er tøft, kombinert med en svært krevende spillestil. Etter tre kamper med samme mannskap, kan det være lurt å endre litt til tirsdag.

I og med at Alioski spilte hele i dag, så hviles han for Harrison. Baker kommer inn for Saiz. Kanskje Bamford fra start. Det er mine tips.Det blir nok to dager med restitusjon, før dem klinker til igjen på tirsdag.

BPF, Ayling, Berardi, Phillips, Klich og Pablo må nok starte. Pontus og Pearce kan jo ta over for Douglas og Cooper, men skummelt å bytte for mange også. Vi får håpe det kommer en midtbane og ving inn snart, så vi kan avlaste Phillips spesielt, men få litt mer bredde på midtbane og ving er viktig. Merker at Forshaw er ute!

Ble ihvertfall ikke beroliget av uttalelsene hans for noen dager siden der han ser for seg at enkelte spillere skal klare å spille alle kampene. Det er naturligvis helt urealistisk. Keeper og stoppere kan kanskje klare det men det er den mentale biten også. Bielsa har fantastiske meritter å vise til men han har aldri ledet er lag i en 46 kampers liga der det i tillegg er play-off og utladede lag har vært et issue med han tidligere.  Jeg syntes spesielt Philips virket direkte ufokusert i perioder i går.  Ikke rart det, etter 4 fulle kamper på 13 dager. Jeg er rett og slett litt bekymret.

Det som er bra med Bielsa er at han aldri er fornøyd. Han finner stadig feil laget har gjort selv om vi vinner. Slik har han vært etter alle kampene. Jubler ikke og tar aldri av. Stiller høye krav.

Jeg er rett og slett litt bekymret.

Sånn jeg tolket uttalelsene hans så mente han at en spiller som Phillips helst skulle spilt alle kampene fordi han pr.nå ikke har en direkte avlaster og fordi han til nå har vært veldig god. Jeg tolket det ihvertfall aldri som at han ser for seg eller ønsker å la noen spille alle kamper.

Det skal sies at Bamba, Sessegnon, R Nevez, S Johansen, Howson, Assombalonga, Chester og helt sikkert flere spilte alle 43-46 kamper i CC (Cup og PO i tilegg) forrige sesong. Spillestil har jo noe å si, men restitusjon mellom kampene er avgjørende. Er man god der, så bør det være innafor med 46 kamper.

Ca. 22 spillere + Shackleton, Edmundson, Clarke, Nicell, Stewens, Rey, Diaz, Strujik, Dalby må da klare å spille 49-55 kamper.. ihvertfall hvis det kommer inn en defensiv midtbane og en ving som Hay sa klubben prøver å få inn.

Det er jo strengt tatt bare 46 harde treninsøkter fordelt over 9 mnd. 5 hard økter i mnd ;)

Utholdenhet!

Legger vi til at gode spillere som Bamford og Forshaw ikke har kommet ordentlig i gang ennå, så holder de nok ut sesongen når de kommer igang! Forshaw er kanskje ikke igang før i oktober! I tillegg ventes det 2 spillere til inn. Disse må jo også trenes inn i systemet og vil ikke være kampklare før oktober...om de kommer!
Da har vi 4 spillere som kun vil være i full action i 8 av sesongens 10 måneder!


Bekymringen ligger nok mest i forhold til Baker og Harrison som ikke har gjennomført en hel sesong i Championship i det siste. Men de kommer bare til å bli «bit-part» spillere!


Ishockeyspillere i USA tåler 60-70 kamper med høyt fokus pr sesong!


I vår stall har vi minst 16 spillere som kan mentalt og fysisk gjennomføre 45 kamper + pr sesong!


Januarvinduet er en gylden mulighet til å korrigere stallen med tanke på innspurten!


Jeg er ikke bekymret!  ;)

Kan ikkje tenke meg at fotballspillere ikkje er fysisk trent til å holde 46+ kamper.
Det det dreier seg om er å holde seg skadefri og unngå mange suspensjoner.
Og kanskje det aller viktigste; psyken - beholde trua også i motbakke.

Ser ut som om Swansea spiller med litt offensiv formasjon, det tror jeg passer oss bra.

Liten korrigereng: 82 grunnspillkamper i NHL + et sluttspill med +/- 20 kamper annenhver dag. Ingen lette kamper og full trøkk i alle! Reising gjennom mange tidssoner og roadtrip på flere uker. Alle lag spiller flere back to back kamper ila sesongen, 2 matcher på 24 timer og ofte en flytur mellom kampene. Riktignok så slipper dem landskamp opphold under sesongen.

Der klages det ikke på antall kamper, og de aller fleste spiller alle kampene.

Men i hockey er det en litt annen kultur og holdning tror jeg. I fotball er dem veldig opptatt av å ikke risikere å bli slitne. Når alle rundt deg står og klager på dine vegner at man er sliten, så tror jeg det kan gi spillerne en liten hvilepute. I hockey hører du det aldri, det er ihvertfall ikke et problem og du får heller ikke mye sympati om man klager. Mye handler om innstilling og holdning tror jeg.

Rotherham-manager Warne om Bielsa:
 Warne saw that too. “No disrespect but his name doesn’t make him a great manager,” Warne said. “His team makes him a great manager. His team were excellent today and against lesser opposition we might have won. The way they play for him, respect to the manager.“He’s a bit quirky but he’s good for football and I’m all about different characters. There’s sheep and there’s shepherds. He’s definitely a shepherd.”

I fjor var disse spillerne involvert i flest ligkamper for Leeds United:

Jansson 42
Alioski 42
Hernandez 41
Phillips 41
Roofe 35
Saiz 34  (husk 6 kampers susp)
Berardi 31 (+ susp for 3 røde)
Cooper 29 (+ susp for 2 røde)
Ayling 26 kamper på en halv sesong

I tillegg var alle involvert i 2-4 cupkamper!

Disse 9 vil fint klare 40 kamper ++ i denne sesongen!

“If we just kick it anywhere, the gaffer’s not happy. He’s told us off before for not being brave.” Kemar Roofe explains the ethos behind the brilliant attacking move which served up his goal against Rotherham:

'I wanted to punch the air'

Robbie Fowler on the energy Marcelo Bielsa has brought to Leeds United
The former Whites striker likes what he sees from the new head coach

It's not just the fans and the media who are all over Leeds United's blistering start to the season.
A number of the club's former players have also been keeping an eye on their old side's fortunes, with Danny Mills comparing this season's side to the ones he played in , while another former White from the club's most recent Premier League days has also weighed in.

Writing in his Sunday Mirror column , former Leeds, Liverpool and England striker Robbie Fowler has spoken of his delight at seeing Leeds start the season so well.
"The club has been through such hard times and they have made a lot of mistakes - with financial decisions, appointing managers they shouldn't have - and it's been so tough for those supporters to go through all that," he says.
"But they have hope now with Marcelo Bielsa, and no set of fans deserves it more."

 
Fowler was back at Elland Road to watch the Stoke clash
Leeds maintained their one hundred per cent record on Saturday, when they defeated Rotherham 2-0 at Elland Road, as they made it three straight wins in the Championship, plus a Carabao Cup first round win against Bolton.
The wins over Stoke and Derby made the rest of the division sit up and take notice and Fowler is confident they if Bielsa's side can maintain this form, they will be back in the promised land of the Premier League.
"If they could keep that up all season, then they will go up. The way they ran about was frightening, the pressing and the energy comparable with managers like those two and Jurgen Klopp," he continues.



 
Bielsa is the first Leeds boss to win his first four games in charge
"I'm not sure Leeds will be able to keep it up, mind, but they have got a genuinely innovative coach doing brilliant things in his opening few games and he just seems like the right personality for what the club needs right now, after being so flat for so long."

Fowler also praised the club's decision to bring in Bielsa.
"I'm not trying to undermine the qualities of previous managers, but this guy is in a different league.
"Instead of taking any form of risk, they went the "safe" route of appointing some journeymen from the lower league treadmill - and it didn't work at all.
"Now they have got a different type of manager, one who is clearly admired by Guardiola and Pochettino. I saw his first interview after that first game and he was so bonkers it made me smile.

 
Fowler was a £12m signing for Leeds in November 2001
"He's mad, a bit loopy, but in the right way (if that's possible!)."
Fowler was at Leeds' first game of the campaign, when they were quickly out of the blocks to dispatch pre-season title favourites Stoke City 3-1.

"There was an energy about the place when I was there, a sense of positivity and hope that has been missing.
"And when you see a manager can have that impact at a club, you really hope he has success.

 
 
"Honestly, I could sense that, driving through the streets around Elland Road, and I wanted to punch the air, I was so relieved.
"Leeds should be in the Premier League - and I'm crossing my fingers Bielsa is the man to take them there."

Thru it all together

Mexican Federation reporedly refused to pay @LUFC’s $10 million release clause to pursue a deal with Marcelo Bielsa for the Mexico National Team opening, but won’t pay release clause & Bielsa also doesn’t want to leave Leeds anyway.

Mexican Federation reportedly refused to pay Leeds United $10 million to pursue a deal with Marcelo Bielsa

Manager has a release clause in his contract

Pete SchlenkerAugust 22, 2018 7:20 pm

It appears that Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani and Director of Football Victor Orta weren’t the only ones interested in taking a chance on Marcelo Bielsa.

Reports out of Mexico indicate that Marcelo Bielsa was approached to manage the Mexican National Team, but that between a $10 million dollar release clause from his Leeds contract, and a desire from Bielsa to stay at Leeds, that the Federación Mexicana de Fútbol Asociación (Femexfut or FMF for short) will not pursue Bielsa.

Marcelo Bielsa has experience coaching and living in Mexico, as he spent time at Atlas and Club América. He was infamously sacked from América, in part, because of his intolerance for doing media appearances and one-on-one interviews.

Leeds is flying high in the Championship, as they are top of the table on 10 points after four games, and is undefeated in all competitions.

From the Diario Récord the issue seemed to be that the FMF had decided to not pursue a deal with Marcelo Bielsa because of the large release clause put into the contract by Leeds, with the newspaper saying:

Siguen en la búsqueda del estratega para Selección Mexicana. Los nombres siguen llegando al escritorio de la FMF; sin embargo, el perfil del entrenador lo tienen bien definido: buscan un técnico que entrene excelente, que siembre la competitividad y que esté pegado a las últimas tecnologías y avances en técnicas, y demás, dentro del campo.

Y hay otros que por el nombre, abolengo e historia salen a flote, como el caso de Marcelo Bielsa, quien ya fue buscado por los dirigentes encargados e incluso entrevistado, pero debido a sus actitudes y decisiones recientes, como el abandonar al equipo o renunciar para tomar otro club o alguna selección, el técnico argentino fue blindado por su actual institución: Leeds United, con una cláusula de 10 millones de dólares de salida; por si alguien quiere sus servicios, como la Selección Mexicana, tendrá que pagar esa cantidad, luego arreglar sueldo y demás.

Which roughly translates to

The FMF is still searching for a manager for the Mexican National Team. The names keep coming to the FMF desk; however, the profile of the kind of coach they’re looking for is well defined: they want a technician who’s an excellent trainer, who instills competitiveness and is familiar with the latest technologies and advances in techniques, and so on, within the sport.

There are others who by name, pedigree, and history are obvious targets, like Marcelo Bielsa, who was certainly wanted by the FMF’s leaders and even interviewed. However, due to his recent bizarre decisions while coaching -- like leaving a team suddenly, or resigning to take another position out of nowhere -- the Argentine manager was saddled with a release clause of 10 million dollars by his current team, Leeds United. If the Mexican National Team wanted to hire him, they will have to pay that amount, then agree on a salary and so on.

Fox Sports MX also reports that Bielsa is not interested in leaving Leeds anyway, saying,

Por ello, en la actualidad está descartada la opción del técnico argentino con el Tri, donde el propio Bielsa informó que pretende mantener su puesto con el Leeds United y no quiere desprestigiar al equipo británico.
Which more or less says that Bielsa would not want to leave Leeds and leave them in the lurch and “discredit” or besmirch Leeds by leaving them to take up a role with the Mexican National Team.

Editor’s Note: Thanks to Rafael Noboa y Riveira for the translation.

He is four injuries down already – Adam Forshaw, Stuart Dallas, Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper – and has driven his players through a cycle of preparation which cut their body fat towards 11 per cent, the figure which Premier League players strive to stay below. For Leeds this is both a marathon and a sprint.

Marcelo Bielsa threatening to finally make Leeds good enough for everybody to hate again - Mirror Online

But, mostly, I thought of the ­revival at Leeds, a team so dominant under Don Revie that rival fans ­despised them with a passion reserved later for only ­Liverpool and Manchester United.

Leeds were the team to beat in the late 1960s and early 1970s — and few could(Image: Mirrorpix)
I thought how healthy it is for English football that a giant of a manager like Marcelo Bielsa is in charge of them, and is giving their fan base hope that a 14-year absence from the top flight may soon be over.

You ­almost have to pinch yourself to see them playing with such style under someone Pep Guardiola has called “the best coach in the world”.


Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani said, before his job interview, the Argentinian had studied 20 of their games and knew about every player — ­including the youth team.


In the brief time he’s been at ­Elland Road, he’s brought a new energy and ambition to the place, with fans loving the way he’s got the players pressing, rotating and winning. And how he orchestrates it all from his perch on an ­upturned bucket.

Bielsa and his bucket already have the Elland Road faithful eyeing a Premier League return(Image: PA Wire)
The victory over Rotherham on Saturday meant Bielsa is the first Leeds manager ever to win his first four games in charge. But, in many ways, the hard-earned draw at Swansea on Tuesday, which took them top of the Championship, was more impressive.

They lost ­captain Liam Cooper in the warm-up, and went ­behind twice, but carried on ­playing decent football and could have snatched a win at the death.

It’s very early days of course, and sceptics are already questioning if the Bielsa effect can last.

Leeds have won four of their first five games — but will the Bielsa way see them run out of steam?(Image: Action Images)
Some fear the ­disciplinarian pushed them too hard with double training sessions in pre-season, which may come back to haunt them when pitches get heavier and injuries kick in.

I hope the sceptics are proved wrong, because you only have to see Leeds in a cup tie at a Premier League ground, hear the following they bring and the atmosphere it creates, to know that is where this huge club belongs.

Two years ago, I was reminiscing with a Leeds-supporting mate about how I spent my ­formative terrace years chanting, “We all hate Leeds and Leeds and Leeds” etc.


Guardiola has won titles in three different countries but he calls Bielsa "the best coach in the world"(Image: Action Images via Reuters)
And he ­replied miserably, “I wish you still did.”

I knew what he meant — the one thing worse than being disliked is being ignored.

But you sense that, under Bielsa, the football cycle is about to turn again.

If they stick with each other, it may not be too long before the curse is lifted on The Damned United.

En fascinerende pressekonferanse - det skriver både Phil Hay og kilden vår her, Leeds Live...
Pre Norwich pressekonferansen.

13:00

Any minute now...
Bielsa doesn’t normally keep us waiting, so I’d imagine he’ll be here any moment now...


13:02

Five minutes
Five minutes, we’re told with an apology.
Keep on holding on there...

13:08

Here's here...
And starts with an apology for being late.

13:08

Latest team news
Cooper won’t be able to play, neither Dallas, neither Forshaw and we’re waiting for mores regarding Jansson.


13:10

Is the squad being stretched?
No, not at all.
Because if we make the maths, we have four players less. Dallas, Forshaw and Cooper won’t be able to play. If we had a fourth one Jansson, but we already knew that and we also work with the under-23s and we have some players playing in this position who could offer us some solutions

13:16

Has anything about the Championship surprised Marcelo?
Before starting the competition you can draw up an analysis, a table, with the rankings before the games are being played. You can establish a ranking before the start of the Championship, taking into account the budget, quality of players, strength of the institution.
But then, when you play, the differences you see at the beginning are not evident, you don’t see them. There’s a term which says that you can win before playing because of the history you have as a club. They games you’ve played before. And this doesn’t happen in the Championship.
For example in the Premier League, it’s hard to find which teams will finish in the top six. It’s the same in Germany, Spain, Italy, France and this competition which is among the ten most important in the world does not respond to this logic.
I’m sorry to give you such a long answer.
13:13

Defensive problems against Swansea - are they resolved?
When we have a problem our hope is obviously to find a solution.
When we make a mistake, it allows us to detect it and try to find a solution.
I can’t assure you that the problem won’t happen again.
But when I can tell you is that when we are aware of a problem, we are in a better position to resolve it.
The problems I saw in the last game, we didn’t have them before but I take into account that Shackleton played in the position of Ayling, that Ayling played in the position of Cooper and in the position of Phillips, Klich played.
Usually Shackleton plays as a number 8, Ayling is a full-back and Klich is a mixed midfielder.
The three players just mentioned could play in the positions they played in the last game, the profile of the team was more offensive with these changes, the lack of coordination was more probable to happen, so it’s my job to find solutions

13:18

At half-time you take your subs in, rather than have them warm up - why?
This happens sometimes, not always.
And there are some messages I wold like to transmit and I would like all the players to listen to these messages.
During half-time we have ten minutes to give information during the game. As each player can participate during the the game, it’s normal that I want them to listen to what I have to say.
13:28

How pleased were you that the players stuck to their style at Swansea, despite being behind?
You know it’s not easy to change the style.
To transmit a style to a team, you need time to do that. To integrate a style, to assimilate a style, you need time. Sometimes it happens in a short time, sometimes you need more time.
And when you win games it makes it easier to assimilate the style because human beings believe more fastly to things which allow them to win.
The idea to have alternative plans which is considered a virtue, I don’t really share this point of view.
I think we have to do what gives us more possibilities. The goal is to do better, not to stop doing it and change the style.
Because when you know how to do different things would mean that you have to share the time available to share ideas in different goals. So it’s natural that the same function that two players with different features can do the same function.
But this doesn’t change the style.
Harrison is a winger who does deep movement. He always tries to find the ball behind the opponents.
Pablo is a winger who strengthens his play getting the ball before the line of the rivals.
Our style makes us play on the sides, but you can do this play in different ways.
You can play deep or make combinations and do that with other players, so as a matter of fact, our ambiton is to find more solutions to one problem, but the style is the same.
This question separates the world of football. I don’t think I am the master of the truth. I try to explain why I act like that. I know in the world of football, all the people don’t share my point of view.
As a common fact, the substitute don’t go to the conversation we have at half-time. So when this matter is brought to the table, what I say is not always the sub comes to hear what i have to say. But what I think, they should always be here to listen to what I have to say at half-time. Because the way we think the game, they won’t listen to how we think about the game.
So an alternative answer would be that football is easy, you have nothing to say about it. But we have to analyse the game. We have to analyse during 10 minutes the first half, so what would be the argument? What would be the reason for the sub not to share this moment? Common sense says they have to be here to hear what I have to say. This is my point of view. But we also have to take into account the POV of the people who think opposite.
What is really important is that football offers you different POVs on one same reality.
If we don;t understand that you have different POVs regarding one topic, your question would have been meaningless, but your question is interesting because we have different POVs on one situation, because you linked result with the style. But I didn’t say this, I say no, we need the style to get the results.
I have a lot of work with such a complex explanation.

13:37

So you have a plan A and you always stick to it - no plan B?
I study and I try to learn those who propose an alternative plan. My point of view, I’ve just explained during ten minutes.
I always analysis and study the other point of view to see if I have to change mine. But the thing I cannot do, I cannot do this because my job is to try and convince people on what I think that to transmit what produces triumph, good results on a specific moment. In order to convince people I have to believe in what I’m saying. Because the footballer only believes something he truly believes in.
Because when the footballer finds out the head coach was trying to convince you and doesn’t share the POV they were trying to convince you, it just abandons you.
I’m going to tell you a serious mistake I made. The kind you don’t forgive yourselves.
I was the head coach of a great striker, Crespo.
He was a very generous player. I trained him in two different moments, a young player and then when he was an experienced player.
When he was a young player I told him once that I thought he was a player with maturity, but I was lying to him. I was trying to strengthen his self-esteem.
Giving him a skill that I didn’t think he had. After some time when he got the maturity I told him now you’re really a mature player, not the same player as before.
What did he think? How come you told me I wasn’t mature before? You lied to me?
Because before you told me I was a strong player but you didn’t believe it. I cannot forgive. I’m right not to forgive myself.
I tell you this not to just tell you a stroy.
My goal is to publically apologise to Crespo because I know I didn’t tell him the truth. It was election forever, I learned that lecture, but I already knew it, because if you lie to your son in order that your son gets something from this artificial moment of strength, the lie, you will just resolve the problem for that day, that moment. But you will have actually weakened him in the future. Because you will have convinced him he has a feature he will only have for a small ammount of time. You have resources that you assimilate forever and this is having maturity.
But when you are not mature you can have some resources you will have when you a mature player, but only for short amount of time.
THe mistake I made with Crespo, to get him involved was to tell him he was like this forever and actually that did not work. Because he went even further than I told him before.
It’s a nice example because it’s Hernan Crespo. A very good player.

13:41

On Norwich's pink dressing room - do these tricks work?
The pink colour is linked to women. For babies when they are born, if it’s a boy we given them something blue, a girl, pink.
We can’t say that men can’t say that women are not a source of stimulation.
But this relationship, he stimulation between men and women happens between a man and a woman. Before a game you don’t have any colours which has a capacity to weaken the desire for training or competition.
The pink colour is a meaningful colour between the relationship between a man and woman, but not for a game.
We told our equipment colleagues to put some papaers up in the dressing room before they come.

13:42

What are you expecting from Norwich?
Norwich is a team that plays better than the points they have. And they won their first game and I think we will play against them and they will have enthusaism very high, which is good for us.

13:42

Many changes off the back of the busy schedule?
This coming Saturday, I don’t think so. For next Tuesday I’m sure.

13:46

How pleased with Bamford off the bench?
I’m very happy with the performance of Bamford’s last game. He had am impact on the game. Harrison had an impact, not as important as Bamford, and Baker too. And these three players gave vigour to the team.


13:50

How did Kalvin Phillips react to being substituted so early on?
Normally, he trained as usual.
I value and I appreciate his professionalism, his behaviour, when I took this decisions, which is not a frequent decision
You know there is an unwritten rule that resolves the relationship between footballers and the head coach because we are colleague.
I always analysis the decisions and when I make wrong decisions I always hope that my players do not show that I made a mistake.
We have different jobs but the player makes mistakes and I make mistakes too and we have to be tolerant when we make mistakes.
Usually I say I made a mistake, thank you for not letting me down.


13:58

And that's all from Bielsa...
Wow, where to start?
That was fascinating. Plenty to dig out of that. Stay tuned.

Bielsa on the defending at Swansea: "When we have a problem, our hope is always to find a solution. When we make a mistake, it allows us to see it and find a solution. I can't assure you it won't happen again. But when we're aware of a problem, we're in a position to solve it."


Bielsa: "The problems I saw at Swansea, we didn't have them before. But Shackleton played in the position of Ayling, Ayling played in the position of Cooper and in the position of Phillips, Klich played. The profile was more offensive. A lack of co-ordination was more probable".

Adam Pope
MB says he takes his subs in at half time (not always) so he can put his message across. Analysis of the 1st half, tactics &  how they can affect the game needs explaining to subs. “It’s common sense” he says. #lufc

A friend of mine was sat in a cafe in Argentina when Bielsa’s pre-Norwich press conference appeared on the tv, in case you’re still unsure of how much of a big deal he is around there #lufc

I dagens Moscowhite-stykke forklarer han langt på veg hvorfor Bielsa ikke vl ha flere midtstoppere (syns jeg):

This was years ago, but it illustrated a point Bielsa was making about his methods; he has to believe in them sincerely, not only in words but in actions, for his players to believe in them too. So if he has told Conor Shaughnessy that he is understudy to the current central defenders, he can’t replace him with a new signing, or he’ll be apologising to him ten years from now the way he apologised to Crespo. “When I speak, I try not to please people,” Bielsa said in one of his first press conferences at Leeds. “When I speak I try not to lie, I try to tell the truth.” Read his lips: no new defenders.

Helt enig! Så lenge resultatene er bra, blir han geniforklart, men får vi 3-4 resultater under pari på rappen blir det nok et helvete.. Skulle gjerne sett vi hentet inn en klassestopper, og gjerne en ving som kunne utfordret Alioski/Hernadez/Harrison

Hvis Bielsa har tro på en skadefri Shaughnessy bør han i alle fall benytte alle muligheter til å la ham komme inn i de kommende kampene. Håper (men tviler) på at en matchfit Shaughnessy har det som skal til for å være den fjerde stopperen på A-laget.

Han gjorde det jo ganske godt i de kampene han spilte som midtstopper ifjor, tviler på at Bielsa skulle gjort fyren noe dårligere enn Christiansen klarte å få til. Har troen på Shaughnessy jeg!

Da denne historien dukket opp i begynnelsen av denne uken var det også snakk om at Leeds hadde satt et skyhøyt beløp for at noen i det hele skulle kunne snakke med ham, så Mexico så på beløpet og trakk seg stille og forsiktig tilbake. :)

Bielsa Mind Games

Psyching out your opponents by being cool

Marcelo Bielsa’s comments about Crespo this week (which I still do not understand) got me thinking about the psychology of motivation.

Bielsa’s comment of not celebrating goals, or wins, out of respect for the other team’s coach twanged a string or two about what I’d previously learnt about motivation and control.

This essay uses a Time Magazine article as a backbone for some thoughts about why he might act as he does and why he may have a different side to come. http://time.com/82905/how-to-be-cool-5-research-backed-tips/

1/ Be Cool – do Less

Being Cool means don’t try too hard. Trying hard is very effective in life and especially in relationships so why NOT try hard?

By not trying, Cool people signal, “I’m so smooth, I don’t have to try to get what I want”.

Can you imagine James Bond fidgeting? He doesn’t tug at his clothing, bob his head, or twitch his shoulders. He doesn’t hem or haw before he speaks. Bond is the quintessential cool, calm, and collected character.
This kind of high-status, high-confidence body language is characterized by how few movements are made. Composed people exhibit a level of stillness, which is sometimes described as poise. They avoid extraneous, superfluous gestures such as fidgeting with their clothes, their hair, or their faces, incessantly nodding their heads, or saying “um” before sentences.

However, and this is a very big however, this only works if you are actually getting what you want. I’ve been taught that you should try extremely hard, much harder than your opposition, in preparation but as soon as the whistle blows and you have no real input you can then act Cool and appear to not try hard.

2/ Confidence

Combine “doing less” with supreme confidence and you have the essence of Cool.

Researchers led by Ilan Dar-Nimrod gave people a course in charisma and one of the factors that produced results was acting confidently.

This research shows that exhibiting self-esteem and confidence is sexy but appearing stressed is not. For men, modesty can actually be a negative linked to weakness.

3/ Break the rules

People who are Cool are NOT oblivious to proper behaviour, in fact, they are socially savvy, but they deliberately break the rules when it benefits them.

Rebelliousness was found to be a key component of Cool – breaking the rules makes you appear powerful.

4/ Body Language needed to appear Cool

Don’t let your hands fidget. Don’t I bite your lip. Don’t nod too much. Keep your speech slow enough. You get the idea!

By feeling Cool on the inside, your body language will reflect Cool.

5/ Warning: Being Cool isn’t always the best

Being cool may be a positive but don’t assume it’s the best attitude for all situations. There is no single perfect way to be.

Being distant creates intrigue but the power of showing interest in others has been scientifically validated over and over again.

Sometimes being an outright prat pays big dividends. Stories of Alex Ferguson and his histrionics in the dressing room are plentiful.

Ironically, so does vulnerability. Bielsa’s apology to Crespo comes to mind.

Conclusion

While seeming to be detached and calm has its benefits for powerful men, so does being very enthusiastic or a domineering prat or even a vulnerable friend.

The situation determines which should be used.

I suspect, and hope, that Bielsa has a side to him that we don’t need to see on the touchline and hope none of our players do either!

Pontus om Bielsa på forbollskanalen.se

Jansson om viktfixeringen i Leeds - har slutat dricka alkohol: "Ligger man inte rätt får man knappt träna"


Inför säsongen tog Marcelo Bielsa över som tränare i Leeds. Den argentinske tränaren, som har lett landslag som Argentina och Chile och klubblag som Lazio och Marseille, har på kort tid satt sin prägel på det engelska laget som efter sex omgångar leder The Championship.

Nu berättar Pontus Jansson om sin nye tränares metoder och vad han hittills har lärt sig.

- Det är otroligt mycket nytt och det är väldigt lärorikt. Man lär sig något nytt varje dag. Otroligt krävande. Långa dagar, intensiva träningar. Men det har gett resultat. Om du tittar på elvan som har spelat nu i början så är det exakt samma spelare som från förra året utan alla nyförvärv har i princip suttit på bänken och väntat i och med att alla kom in så sent, och samma med mig. Så att göra det här med spelarna som var där förra året och som i princip var ett lag på nedre halvan till att nu leda serien och spela bra fotboll, han ska såklart ha kredd, säger Jansson.

Hur är det med så långa dagar som han vill ha?
- Ja första veckan jag kom tillbaka så fick jag nästan en chock. Då var man där nio på morgonen och var hemma vid fem-sex på kvällen, och det är man inte van vid som fotbollsspelare. Det var en chock. Men nu har det lugnat sig eftersom vi har så mycket matcher.

- Sedan för min egen del fysiskt så är det en otrolig skillnad. Jag har gått ner fyra kilo och tappat väldigt mycket i kroppsfett vilket för honom i princip är starten för att få börja spela. Ligger man inte rätt viktmässigt så får man knappt träna. Det är invägning varje morgon, ligger du inte rätt där så får du höra det.

Tyckte han att du låg över när du kom tillbaka?
- Nej, men jag fick ju tillsägelse på semestern när jag satt med öl hemma i trädgården, att jag ska väga si och så när jag kommer tillbaka. Så jag fick en liten chock då. Men jag satte igång direkt och började träna med Malmö och kom tillbaka i bra skick.

Känner du dig lättare och starkare?
- Ja, mycket. Det är en otrolig skillnad. För att vara så stor som jag är och tappa de här kilona, det gör skillnad. Man kanska har varit lite lat innan, men jag tycker ändå att jag har varit noga under min karriär med mat och kost, men det man har lärt sig här nu att man kan tappa med ännu mer noggrannhet så är det stor skillnad.

Styrs det mycket av klubben och av Bielsa?
- Ja det är han och hans staff som sköter detta. Det är invägning varje morgon och invägning innan match och efter match. Man tummar inte på någonting.

Finns det ingen risk att det blir en viktfixering?
- Jo lite har det faktiskt blivit. Man tänker på allt. Vad du än äter och vad du än dricker så tänker man på det. För mig tror jag att alkoholen är det som har gjort att jag har tappat nu. Man brukar ta en öl efter match och njuta, men det har jag tagit bort här nu, så jag tror att det är det som har hjälp mest om jag ska vara ärlig.

- Men det är allt man gör, allt man äter, maten vi har på anläggningen är otroligt bra och klubben är noga med det. Man tummar inte på något och det har gett resultat. Det är glädjande.

Förra säsongen var Pontus Jansson given i laget, men med Bielsa som tränare har han inte varit lika given hittills utan det har blivit en start och två inhopp.

- För egen del har det varit väldigt hektiskt. Kom in tre dagar innan säsongen började och blev tillsagd att inte göra något efter VM utan att jag skulle komma tillbaka och ta det därifrån och köra igång. Men mycket nytt, mycket nytt folk, det kändes nästan som att jag hade skrivit på för en ny klubb när jag kom tillbaka, säger han.

- Men laget har fått en bra start och det är jag såklart glad för. Nu är det bara för mig att steppa in och börja spela och så ska det nog bli ännu bättre.

Spelmässigt då, har det varit en stor omställning med Bielsa?
- Det har också varit otroligt lärorikt. Nya saker varje dag. Det är otroligt krävande även som mittback. Som mittback i Championship springer du väl i snitt nio kilometer per match, nu senaste matcher hade jag sprungit elva och en halv kilometer. Så det är en otrolig skillnad i hur han vill spela, i hur han vill ha sina försvarare.

- Men det är saker som jag kommer att ta med mig under resten av min karriär, förhoppningsvis som tränare sedan i framtiden också. Det är bara en månad ungefär men jag har lärt mig otroligt mycket. Men sedan kanske han inte är den personen som man pratar med mest av alla. Det finns både för- och nackdelar.

Hur är han som person?
- Väldigt sluten. Jag tror inte att jag har pratat med honom än om jag ska vara ärlig. Jag har fått några utskällningar bara, det är allt. Annars vill han ha en distans till sina spelare, det får man köpa. Hade jag varit tränare så hade inte jag haft det så, men alla tränare har sin stil och det är bara att köpa det. Sedan har han andra i sin staff som sköter det här vardagliga snacket och så. Sedan är det ju också förståligt eftersom han inte kan flytande engelska.

Är det mentalt tufft med det ledarskapet?
- Jag har ju alltid gillat att ha en nära relation med min tränare och bolla idéer och så. Så för mig har det också varit en omställning. Men man lär sig hela tiden nya saker. Jag hade föredragit att ha en nära relation med tränaren men nu är det så här. Det finns för- och nackdelar med allt. Men det har varit mentalt även för mig, nu har jag inte spelat heller och det har såklart också varit jobbigt när man inte har fått en motivering. Jag fattar det själv i och med att jag kom tillbaka så sent, men du har inte fått höra det och då blir det extra jobbigt att sitta bredvid.

- Men sedan är man ju mer och mer glad för att laget går bra ju äldre man blir, och tänker kanske inte lika mycket på sig själv. Men det har varit krävande för egen del. Man blir lätt frustrerad när man inte är i centrum och spelar och skiner varje match. Men sådan är fotbollen, det gäller bara att vara stark och det vet jag att jag är, så det är bara att kriga på.

Hur märker ni av att det är Bielsa-feber, det kollas ju till och med på Championship i Chile och Argentina nu?
- Ja det är en otrolig hysteri kring honom. Folk reser till matcherna bara för att kolla på honom. Det säger en del. Jag är glad att jag får jobba med honom på ett så här nära håll som jag får göra och att jag får lära mig så otroligt mycket. Det finns mycket influenser som man kan ta med sig.

Vad har varit största omställningen för dig i sättet han vill spela på?
- Det är väldigt mycket man-man-inriktat, anpassa sig väldigt mycket till motståndare. Analyserar allt in i minsta lilla detalj. Så för min egen del är det att det blir mycket man-man, men det gör inget eftersom jag är van vid det från Italien. Så för mig har det inte varit så stor omställning men det har det nog varit för de andra.

- Jag har sett den här Manchester City-dokumenteren om hur Pep Guardiola jobbar och det här är otroligt likt hur Bielsa gör. Sedan vet jag inte vem som har snott av vem, nädå, men det är otroligt likt i influenser.

Leeds United: The stats prove the effect Bielsa is having on United

Phil Hay
Published: 05:53 Wednesday 05 September 2018
Head coach Marcelo Bielsa is famed for his style of pressing and passing football and the figures from United’s first six games show how his transformation of Leeds is well underway. Phil Hay reports.


Expected goals is a fairly new addition to the ream of statistical data devoured by football clubs after every game.

 Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa.
Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa.
The algorithm, which rates the quality of chances created over the course of 90 minutes, is a measure of sustainability and a means of telling if a club’s results on paper match the standard of their performances.

Overall analysis goes deeper again and Marcelo Bielsa’s view of the first month of the season was never going to based on a Championship table showing Leeds United at the head of the field. The division after six games might make him the first Leeds boss in eight years, and only the second since the Football League was rebranded in 2004, to win the manager-of-the-month award but the numbers supporting United’s results are a better indicator of the impact his coaching has had.

After Friday’s goalless draw with Middlesbrough, a result which left Leeds unbeaten with 14 points and a goal difference of plus 10, Bielsa called the club’s start “satisfactory”. His players have come to learn quickly that he is hard to please – Pontus Jansson spoke last week of a one-and-a-half hour meeting on the back of a 2-2 draw at Swansea City in which the Argentinian “almost killed us” – but August played out as Bielsa intended: high on quality, low on errors and displaying all the traits associated with his fabled philosophy.

Over six matches Leeds have out-passed every club in the Championship, with a thousand more already than Middlesbrough. Their completion rate of 79 per cent is top of the pile and their dedication to short passing has been absolute: more accurate than all 23 rival teams and making up 83 per cent of the exchanges of possession between Bielsa’s players. Bielsa promised to produce a squad of “protagonists”, and squad who “take the game by the scruff of the neck and have time with possession on the ball rather than fighting to win it back”, and he has been as good as his word so far. At at average of 56 per cent, Leeds have dominated possession more thoroughly than anyone else in their division.

Pontus Jansson

Bielsa’s preferred tactics were wholly dependent on statistics like that. The open, ambitious football he visualised was at the mercy of his players’ ability to pass religiously and trust in that passing to cut the opposition apart. Twelve of United’s 14 league goals have come from open play, including all nine of those scored away from home. They have registered more goals from open play than 20 other Championship clubs have scored in total. An expected goals calculation of 1.2 per match vindicates Bielsa comment that Leeds have “things to improve” and they hit a wall against Middlesbrough, discovering that Tony Pulis’ defence were as disciplined as their record suggested. But the same idea was there: twice as many passes as Boro over the course of the fixture and an attitude contrasting with those of a team whose goalkeeper, Darren Randolph, sent all but one of his 28 clearances long. In what was a predictable clash of cultures, Pulis found a way of negating Leeds and keeping them at arm’s length.

There were moments, as Pulis said afterwards, when more precision or better decision-making – particularly from a tiring Mo Besic – would have caused Leeds trouble when pockets of space appeared but there is a balance to Bielsa’s strategy which contradicts his ‘El Loco’ nickname and the presumption of a carefree attitude. Bielsa’s side have been audacious without being reckless, piecing together attacks intelligently and avoiding the sort of wide-open displays that could cast Bielsa as Kevin Keegan. Only Pulis has a tighter defence than his and while Leeds tick so many boxes in an attacking sense – most assists in the league, fourth in the production of key passes – they are limiting opposition chances as well as any team bar Brentford and keeping the expected goals against tally to exactly one a game. To date, in the Championship, Bielsa’s side have conceded just twice from open play.

On a basic level there is little separating United’s league position from that held by Thomas Christiansen’s squad after six matches of last season. Both tables showed four wins, two draws, 14 points and a goal difference of 10. What resonates with Bielsa is the fact that his style – one he transmits openly and allows the watching world to dissect – has kicked in so impressively and in so little time. His in-depth analysis of United’s matches last season allowed him to make more than a standing start in June but even he must be quietly pleased with the way his team have developed: not merely recording wins and gathering points but doing so in the way he demanded.

It adds a strand to the debate over whether Leeds can sustain Bielsa’s tactics for 10 months; of whether August has teed up a fine year ahead or whether this time of year will be the flash in the pan it became under Christiansen. It is, as Bielsa said himself, a small window to draw conclusions in but the areas of performance where Leeds score highly, the aspects of their play that have yielded results and the way in which it all tallies with Bielsa’s long-held philosophy prove that the 63-year-old is not winging it. This is the football Bielsa sought, delivered by players he specifically chose to use. Some in the Championship are questioning if this heady start will last. Perhaps they should be asking how much better it could get.

Marcelo Bielsa becomes the first Leeds manager to win the @SkybetChamp Manager of the Month award since Simon Grayson in December 2010.

The fact the he declined to take a photo with the trophy speaks volumes about his humble nature. The end goal is all that matters to him.

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa delivering on all his promises, says Adam Forshaw

Phil Hay
Published: 06:00 Tuesday 11 September 2018
 Adam Forshaw.
Adam Forshaw.
THERE is an age-old routine to managerial appointments in which the new incumbent always promises improvement and change.


Thomas Christiansen used footage of performances under Garry Monk to highlight ways in which Leeds United were going wrong. Marcelo Bielsa sifted through the whole of last season before explaining how he would shake up the club and create a team of “protagonists”.


Adam Forshaw, like every footballer, knows the drill in these scenarios – the inevitable changes in direction which come with any new broom – but the scale of the shift under Bielsa’s management has taken him by surprise.


Even from a distance during a month out injured, Forshaw could see a squad undergoing a complete overhaul: F***er, fine-tuned and coached in a way which allowed the concept of ‘Bielsa-ball’ to work.

It worked to striking degree in August, taking Leeds to the top of the Championship and earning Bielsa the manager-of-the-month award at the first time of asking. That award could be classed as a case of the Argentinian adapting quickly to an unfamiliar league but Bielsa spent most of August forcing the league to adapt to him.


So it is this weekend that for the second time in two years, Leeds head to Millwall in mid-September with an unbeaten record to defend.

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa.

Forshaw has recovered from a broken foot bone and could feature in United’s squad for the first time this season on Saturday. His close-range observations of Bielsa are similar to those of people on the outside: that the 63-year-old is “the boss”, with an absolute commitment to one way of playing. Like most of the players, Forshaw lost weight over the summer through a hard training schedule which prepared Bielsa’s side for the intensity he expected them to play with.

“He’s been fantastic,” Forshaw said. “He’s the boss and that’s how it is. He’s got such an aura in terms of the way you respect him for the calibre of coach he is and what he’s done but at the same time, he’s a nice guy as well.


“A lot of managers can come into a club and say ‘you’re not fit enough and I want to play this way’. He’s actually put the work in and got us to a stage where we’re fit enough to play the way he wants us to. Other managers in the past have maybe wanted to do it but haven’t put foundations down like he has. The conditioning of the players is there now to perform and improve. Because I think we still can improve.”

The recent Amazon documentary charting the inner workings of Manchester City last season has shown Pep Guardiola, a confirmed disciple of Bielsa’s, at very close-quarters with his players. At Leeds, Bielsa has been more distant; in complete control of the coaching set-up but at arms’ length from the squad for much of the time and happy to delegate to his large clutch of assistants, Pablo Quiroga, Diego Reyes, Diego Flores and Carlos Corberan. His technical area operates in much the same way, dominated by his staff until Bielsa feels the need to animate himself.

Genuinely it’s been so professional. I’ve enjoyed it so much, even watching while I’ve not been fit. The intensity we play at, the professionalism of it all, I really can’t fault it.

Adam Forshaw
“If he wants to tell you something in a football sense, he’ll talk to you all day and explain things,” Forshaw said. “Apart from that, we spend a lot of time with the staff.

“Genuinely it’s been so professional. I’ve enjoyed it so much, even watching while I’ve not been fit. The intensity we play at, the professionalism of it all, I really can’t fault it. Ultimately, if you work with that intensity in training then it’s going to seep into the games.


“All the players bought into the whole idea from Marcelo and I can tell you this about everybody – they look like different players with the condition they’ve got themselves in.”

Bielsa, for his part, bought into Forshaw’s attributes and was ready to use the midfielder in the advanced role occupied to impressive effect by Mateusz Klich last month. Forshaw, however, suffered an injury in training and was ruled out before Leeds’ last pre-season friendly against Las Palmas on July 29. After a month out, he aimed to resume full training this week and give himself a chance of making the squad at Millwall.

It has been this way for Forshaw since his £3m move from Middlesbrough in January.

He had a minor calf strain when he signed and was diagnosed with a grade-two tear in the muscle in the latter stages of last season. In all he has started nine matches.

“I went away and worked so hard in the off season,” he said. “It was a bit stop-start last season after I signed in January. I only played 12 games so I worked really hard, lost some weight – which is massive for the manager – and felt really sharp.


“I felt ahead of where I wanted to be and I had a lot of fitness in the tank. This injury isn’t down to me not looking after myself. It was a freak, unfortunately.”

In the interim he has watched and learned, trying to be a “sponge” around Bielsa. Forshaw could have another 10 years ahead of him as a player but there is something about Bielsa which encourages him to take lessons from a breed of coach he might not play under again.

“For me, who knows? Potentially in the future I might want to be a coach or a manager or work in football,” he said. “We’d be stupid as players not to want to be a sponge to this guy. We know where he’s managed, at international level and in Spain and France. It’s key for us to want to learn.”

I Am The Resurrection: How Marcelo Bielsa Has Woken a Sleeping Giant.

THAT'S LIQUID FOOTBALL
That's Liquid Football

5 hours ago

“A man with new ideas is a madman, until his ideas triumph.”
Marcelo Bielsa

In a summer that was low on intrigue in the transfer market and devoid of any kind of meaningful drama in the top tier of English football, Marcelo Bielsa’s appointment as Leeds United manager came as a bolt from the blue. The union of a coach best known for his obsessive attention to detail and the tendancy to walk out of a job at the drop of the hat and a club that has been a basket case for the past fifteen years was as shocking as it was intriguing. The chemical equation was potentially explosive, with pundits wondering if the Argentinian would even outstay Brian Clough’s forty-four days in charge at Elland Road, given that he resigned just forty-eight hours after becoming Lazio boss in 2016. Heading into this weekend, Bielsa’s Leeds sat top of the Championship, unbeaten with fourteen points from six games, and playing the kind of football that Whites fans have been deprived of for too long. Finally, something is stirring in West Yorkshire.

It’s fair to say that the twenty-first century hasn’t been kind to Leeds United supporters. The first two seasons of the new millennium saw David O’Leary’s side fighting for the Premier League title and reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League, but hopes of a team regularly challenging for silverware were quickly squashed when it emerged that chairman Peter Ridsdale had taken out loans against the club’s future success, a decision that spectacularly backfired when, the following season, Leeds finished fifth. From then on things spiralled out of control, as two relegations in three years left the club languishing in League One, with sadistic grandfather figure Ken Bates as owner and Dennis Wise as manager. An upturn in form under Simon Grayson saw Leeds return to the Championship and reach the play-off final in successive seasons, but a 3-0 defeat to Watford at Wembley denied them the opportunity to return to the Premier League. In 2014, Italian entrepreneur Massimo Cellino purchased a controlling stake in the club, and the pantomime at Elland Road welcomed a new character. One of Cellino’s first decisions was to appoint Forest Green Rovers boss Dave Hockaday as manager, despite the former Hull City winger having no experience of league football. Needless to say, the experiment failed, and what followed was a two year managerial merry-go-round, as Darko Milanič, Neil Redfearn, Uwe Rosler, Steve Evans and Garry Monk all took their turn in the impossible job. Then, in 2017, businessman Andrea Radrizzani burst through the Yorkshire clouds to put an end to Cellino’s madness, taking ownership of Leeds United and re-purchasing the freehold to Elland Road. A disappointing season followed, as both Thomas Christensen and Paul Heckingbottom failed to live up to expectations in the dugout, and after relieving former Barnsley boss Heckingbottom of his duties, Radrizzani met with Sporting Director Victor Orta to discuss replacements.

“When I decided to change Paul, I didn’t have any doubt that I wanted to have a manager with charisma and leadership which everybody else in the organisation would follow,”
Andrea Radrizzani

The last few years of Bielsa’s career have been chaotic to say the least. Suspended by Lille after thirteen games following a poor start last season, the Rosario-born coach saw his contract terminated before Christmas. The Lille debacle had followed those infamous two days in charge at the Stadio Olimpico, which had seen Bielsa resign as Lazio manager over the club’s transfer policy. Disagreements with club hierachy have become a running theme in the 60-year old’s career as, after one game of the 2015/16 season, Bielsa stepped down as head coach of Marseille, reputedly due to conflict over player sales. But beyond the eccentricity and unpredictability that has earned the Argentine the nickname ‘El Loco’, there lies one of the great modern football coaches.

Brought up in an affluent family in the port city of Rosario in Argentina, Bielsa learned the value of hard work from an early age. While his father worked as a laywer, and his brother and sister both held roles in the government, it was his mother that provided him with inspiration, thanks to her strong work ethic and disciplinarian nature. He recalls, “For her, no effort was sufficient.” An indistinguished playing career saw Bielsa represent his boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys, though injury curtailed his career at the age of 25. After qualifying as a PE teacher, Bielsa took his first steps into management with the University of Buenos Aires men’s soccer team, before accepting an invite from Newell’s to return to the club as a youth coach and talent scout, where that dedication and obsession for the game first began to shine through. In a bid to ensure La Lepra recruited the brightest young players in Argentina, Bielsa traversed the country in his Fiat 147, clocking up over five thousand miles to uncover the likes of Gabriel Batitstuta and Mauricio Pochettino. A spell as manager followed and, after an appearance in the Copa Libertadores final, he took his hometown club to the Clausara championship playing a revolutionary high-press that opposition players described as ‘suffocating’.

That distinctive playing style and complete belief in the system has defined Bielsa’s career, with his time in Mexico epitomised by his walking out of Club Atlas after the players had complained of burnout after a season of playing high-intensity style of football, before a disagreement with club management over media duties at Club America saw his fiery nature earn him the sack. At Argentina, consistency gave way to absurdity, as La Albiceleste lurched from the sublime to the ridiculous, reaching the Copa America final and winning gold at the 2004 Olympics, while also exiting the 2002 World Cup at the group stage. His short, intense spell at Athletic Bilbao, too, brought success without silverware; defeats in the Europa League and Copa Del Rey finals saw Athletic Club finish the season with six defeats in a row, with players citing exhaustion.

“We were physically finished and lost two cup finals. We used to always play with the same team and finally our legs said ‘stop’.”
Ander Herrera

It was his work with the Chilean national team that earned Bielsa the worldwide acclaim he enjoys today, with the extent of his obsessive nature and his reputation as a stickler for perfection laid bare. Upon taking the job, Bielsa moved into a modest room at the national team’s training ground, all the while taking work as a guest speaker at events across the world in order to fund improvements to his team’s facilities. During his four years in charge, he took La Roja to their first World Cup for twelve years, earning plaudits from his hero Johan Cruyff for playing “the most attractive football” in South Africa. His dedication to developing youth continued too, giving Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and the rest of the Chilean ‘Golden Generation’ their first caps, and providing the groundwork for successor Jorge Sampaoli to win Chile’s first Copa America in 2015. It’s for these reasons Leeds United supporters were so excited when Bielsa’s appointment was first announced.

Radrizzani had originally wanted to appoint Antonio Conte, but when Orta suggested Bielsa might be the more obtainable option, the Leeds owner sanctioned a meeting. Within minutes the club’s representatives were spellbound as, having asked the Argentinian how much he knew about the Championship, Bielsa produced a dossier on Bolton Wanderers vs Burton Albion from last season. He’d also compiled notes on the formations of all twenty-four teams in the league, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each. Proving himself not so much a student of football as teacher’s pet, almost immediately he’d talked himself into the job. By the end of his first press conference, the new manager had won supporters over, declaring “I think I’m at a club that’s bigger than I deserve”. Not to be confused with false modesty, Bielsa’s humility is genuine, in spite of his achievements.

To prepare for this season, the football-addicted manager watched all fifty-one of Leeds’ fixtures from last season, as well as two post-season friendlies. He pored over the blueprints of the training complex and advised on changes – a dormitory and games room for players, and a bed for him, of course. Before the start of the season, the average work day at the training ground was lengthened considerably. Ten hour days became the norm, with double training, video sessions, and one-to-one briefings with each player. Every morning the whole squad would be weighed to check they were on track to meet Bielsa’s meticulous planning. Physical fitness is paramount to The System.

“I have gone down four kilos and lost a lot in body fat, which for him is basically the beginning to start playing”
Pontus Jansson

The Argentinian’s tactical blueprint relies on relentless pressing, constant movement, risk-taking, and extreme width. Full-backs are expected to contribute heavily to attacks, while centre-backs are encouraged to play the ball forwards whenever possible. With increased jeopardy at the back, the value of quick turnovers high up the pitch is drilled into his players.  Usually found switching between a 3-3-1-3 and 4-2-3-1 depending on the opposition’s formation, Bielsa began to mould his squad to play a flexible 4-3-3, able to switch to a 4-5-1 where necessary, a far cry from the rigid formation played under Heckingbottom last season. With transfer funds at a premium, the new manager was forced to rely on his contacts and reputation in the game to bring in Jack Harrison from Manchester City on loan, with Pep Guardiola only to happy to allow the youngster a season of learning under the coach that convinced him to go into management. Chelsea’s Lewis Baker also found the prospect of working under the fabled Bielsa too good an opportunity to turn down, taking a pay-cut to spend a season at Elland Road. What budget there was for recruitment went on Patrick Bamford – a useful striker at Championship level – and Barry Douglas, among the most creative players in the division last season, with fourteen assists for Wolves down the left-hand side. Beyond these few new additions, it was left to Bielsa to sculpt a side that won just four games in the second half of last season into a promotion-chasing team.

His first port of call was to make Kalvin Phillips the fulcrum of his midfield. Brought through the youth-ranks in the anchor role, Bielsa has encouraged the 22 year old to work on the technical side of the game, spraying passes out to the on-rushing full-backs, and slotting into defence as a sweeper when his team-mates bomb forward. Kemar Roofe, August’s Player of the Month, has been charged with defending from the front, playing a more direct role in the centre of an attacking trident and reaping the benefits with four goals from his first six games. Meanwhile Samuel Saiz, who often flattered to deceive in his first season in English football, is emerging as one of the most talented players in the second division. Not only a radical tactician, Bielsa is able to evaluate weakness and improve it. In the opening game of the season it was Saiz that teed up Mateusz Klich for the opening goal, as Leeds went for the throat of pre-season favourites Stoke City in a rousing 3-1 victory, with the new boss perched on his bucket on the sidelines, giving himself the best vantage point possible to scrutinise the action.

“With his help, I learned how to watch video for the details. I became very interested in video and tactics. That was his effect on me. I always tell people: Bielsa woke me up.”
Benjamin Mendy

It hasn’t all been plain sailing for the league leaders in the opening weeks of the season, having to come from behind twice at Swansea to snatch a draw in a performance that fell way below the manager’s expectations. Bielsa’s substitutions in the match – withdrawing Phillips after 28 minutes, Gjanni Alioski at half-time, and Roofe on the hour – typified a coach unafraid to make bold decisions. The post-mortem in South Wales lasted an hour, and the manager didn’t hold back. Four days later, Leeds went to Carrow Road and dismantled Norwich City with breathtaking football, before cleaning the away dressing room at the behest of their manager. The virtue of hard work is being hard-wired into Bielsa’s squad both on and off the pitch, with the players expected to carry out menial tasks at the training ground to encourage empathy with the average supporter. If it weren’t so dazzling to watch, you might confuse the whole operation for a cult.

The statistics, though, speak for themselves. Averaging 2.1 goals per game, Leeds are second top scorers behind West Brom, courtesy of The Baggies 7-1 debagging of Steve McClaren’s QPR. They sit top for possession (56.7%), pass success rate (78.6%), goals from open play (13), and short passes per game (410 – almost a hundred more than they were averaging last season). Despite Bielsa’s cavalier approach to attacking football, they’ve  conceded the sixth fewest shots per game, thanks largely to a defence that sits third for tackles (19). In almost all of those categories Leeds finished bottom half last season. It’s impossible to deny that The System is working.

Naturally, there are concerns. With the joint smallest squad in the league, the Whites are only ever two or three injuries away from a crisis, as witnessed at Swansea, where Bielsa was forced to field a back four containing three full-backs and an eighteen year old midfielder. Still, the madcap master found a way around it. The propensity for Bielsa’s teams to burnout is also a worry – five finals on his CV reaping just one medal points to an overstretching of resources. In his one full season at Marseille, Les Phocéens flew out of the traps, embarking on an eight-game winning streak and heading into the winter break at the top of Ligue 1, before faltering and fading in the second half of the season to finish fourth. Remove the two-week break and add a further eight games and you’ve got a recipe for total exhaustion. Whether the manager has the fortitude for the long slog of a promotion push is also up for debate – this is his first time outside the top flight after all.

Leeds fans, too, will be wary of false dawns. After a tricky start under Gary Monk, they watched their team spend the majority of the 2016/17 season in the playoff positions, before a late collapse saw them finish in seventh. Last year, Thomas Christensen won five and drew two of his first seven games, before a defeat at Millwall sparked the beginning of the end for the Spaniard. By the time he was sacked at the beginning of February, Leeds had fallen from the automatic places into midtable, never to return. This weekend’s visit to The Den was the litmus test for their new manager, particularly with an injury list that featured Roofe, Pablo Hernandez, Gaetano Berardi and Bamford. Though not always convincing, watching their team escape south London with a point for the first time since 2012, courtesy of Jack Harrison’s first goal for the club, will provide more evidence for Leeds fans that this is their year. There’s comfort to be found in the performances of their team as well as results, with four of their fellow promotion hunters already successfully side-stepped. Christensen’s run to the summit was always laden with caveats, whilst his successors’ suggests the best is yet to come.

“My desire, my wish is that I hope he changes the reality of Leeds, brings them to the Premier League and does a fantastic job there.”
Mauricio Pochettino

Forts.

There were suggestions pre-season that Bielsa would struggle adjusting to the Championship. In fact it appears the Championship is yet to adjust to Bielsa. Those of a less studious nature may struggle to understand what the fuss is all about, but the esteem with which El Loco is held at many of his former employers should tell the whole story. Newell’s Old Boys, one of the great teams in Argentina in the early 1900s before the rise of River Plate and Boca Juniors, named their stadium after their hometown hero in 2009. Athletic Bilbao, who went head to head with Barcelona and Real Madrid in the early 1980s, revelled in the spotlight during Bielsa’s brief spell in charge. Marseille supporters mourned the loss of a coach that brought back memories of their early 90s dominance. There were tears at the Estadio Nacional Julio Martínez Prádanos, as Chile’s fans laid on a display of appreciation during his last match in charge. Now, at Elland Road, the despair and disconsolance of the last fifteen years has been replaced with promise and pride. Marcelo Bielsa has awoken the sleeping giant of Leeds United; what happens next is anyone’s guess.

Måtte det vare........ leeenge. :)

@Murray__87

Such a huge influence on many, I like many ask why he really has never settled at any club?

 
Phil Hay
@PhilHayYEP

simple answer is politics. Fell out with Bilbao over their training ground. Fell out with Marseille over contract/players. Issue at Lille with his trip back to South America. And at Lazio, they weren't signing any of the players he asked them to. So he quit.

SAMUEL
He must of been happy with the sale of Ronaldo which surprises me.
I wouldn't say happy (his preference was to keep Vieira) but it wasn't a deal-breaker.

personally I think the El Loco nickname is a bit of a misnomer. He's not a loose cannon in the traditional sense. He's just very hard to please and very particular about what he wants and needs.

he did but over time people seem to have taken it to mean that he’s a lunatic/loose cannon. I don’t get that impression at all.

...tenker han på Redfearn & italienerne?

Phil Hay:
losing the dressing room is a real phenomenon. I can think of at least one coach at Leeds who was hung out to dry by members of his squad. But with Bielsa, he's bigger than any individual at the club (including the boardroom). King pin. That makes a difference.

Explaining Marcelo Bielsa: How the Argentine came to influence football's greatest managers

If you thought Brian Clough’s Leeds spell was fraught, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Bielsa has inspired a generation of top coaches to become winners – and a string of club owners to pull their hair out

Chuck Berry didn’t invent rock and roll music, but he probably came closer than anyone else, along with Elvis Presley and Little Richard, to putting all the necessary components in the right order.

Berry was radical, obsessive and utterly convinced he was always right about everything. He spent much of his teenage years in the early 1950s disassembling and reassembling transistor radios, so he understood the exact mechanics of how they produced sound and could adapt his rock and roll masterpieces accordingly.

It worked. Every time he implored Beethoven to roll over (and tell Tchaikovsky the news), he inspired wide-eyed teens everywhere to pick up their guitar and play. “It wasn’t until I heard Chuck Berry that I realised what you could do,” recalled The Who’s Pete Townshend.

“I lifted every lick he ever played,” said Rolling Stone Keith Richards. “Even if you’re a rock guitarist who wouldn’t name him as your main influence, your main influence is probably still influenced by Chuck.”

This summer, Berry’s football equivalent, whose coaching playbook is no less exhaustive or far-reaching, achieved a lifetime ambition of managing in England. Marcelo Bielsa became Leeds manager.


Almost every major league is permeated by his coaching acolytes, many of them former players such as Mauricio Pochettino or Diego Simeone, who’ve lived and breathed the unconventional methods of El Loco – The Madman. Pep Guardiola may not have played under the Argentine coach, but the Manchester City boss has long since viewed Bielsa with the sort of reverence that The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and more reserved for Berry.

The 63-year-old is the best-paid coach outside the top flight, his idiosyncratic, almost autocratic mannerisms bringing stardust to the Championship. There will be fireworks, homework, the potential amputation of fingers, and team talks from a coach who relaxes by going for 2am runs while listening to tapes about tactics.

Life is seldom dull when Marcelo Bielsa is around.

“He wanted to help this group of street kids become heroes”

Johnny B Goode is the semi-autobiographical story of a humble guitar-playing country boy, whose mother convinces her son that “someday your name will be in lights”.

While you could never describe Bielsa’s upbringing in a Rosario townhouse as humble – the family is one of Argentina’s great legal dynasties; Marcelo’s grandfather, father, brother and sister are all either lawyers or politicians – his mother Lidia did indeed instil her youngest son with the intrinsic belief that he would dominate his chosen discipline. From an early age, football became that calling.

“She was fundamental in my life,” Bielsa has said of his mother. “For her, no [amount of] effort was sufficient.” Lidia would be dispatched to the local newsagents most days to pick up the daily newspapers and Argentina’s weekly sporting bible El Grafico, which her son would study religiously.

Bielsa learned from his grandfather Rafael – a lawyer responsible for creating much of the country’s legislature – that knowledge was power; knowledge gleaned from his collection of more than 30,000 books at the family home. Even now, Bielsa subscribes to more than 40 different sports magazines the world over, FourFourTwo included.

Ever the contrarian, Bielsa supported Newell’s Old Boys because his father was a fan of bitter city rivals Rosario Central. Picked up by Newell’s in his teens, he was good on the ball, but slow and poor in the air. He realised after three first-team appearances that his talent lay more in an innate appreciation of how and why things happen on a pitch than what he could actually do with a ball himself. So at 25, he quit, enrolled to become a PE teacher and two years later, in 1982, took a job managing the University of Buenos Aires’ football team.

Bielsa was only three years older than most of his players, but his work ethic and obsessive professionalism won the squad over. He watched more than 3,000 players before deciding on his 20-man squad, then drilled them relentlessly. When UBA drew with Boca Juniors’ reserves in a friendly, Newell’s hired him as a youth coach.

Convinced that Argentina’s agrarian interior housed untapped talent, Bielsa and his assistant Jorge Griffa divided the country into 70 different regions and drove his battered Fiat 147 to every one.

Bielsa and Griffa turned up at a sleeping Mauricio Pochettino’s house at 2am, commenting how the 13-year-old future Spurs boss had “the legs of a footballer”. But Pochettino is just one of dozens of players they scouted. Gabriel Batistuta – the son of a slaughterhouse worker in small-town Avellanada – was another in 1987.

“When I arrived, I was fat – it’s that simple,” explained Batistuta. “I liked alfajores [a traditional biscuit]. The first thing Bielsa did was get rid of them and teach me to train in the rain. I hated him for it.


“We were a group of dreamers and the first dreamer was Bielsa. He dreamed about being Arrigo Sacchi, who he watched constantly winning European Cups. He wanted that to be us. A group of street kids to become heroes.”

Pochettino and midfielder Eduardo Berizzo followed Batistuta into the first team, Bielsa’s personally-scouted stream of young, hungry players with fire in their bellies turning Newell’s Old Boys into one of Argentina’s most promising sides. His El Loco epithet – earned after telling defender Fernando Gamboa that he’d cut off his own finger if it guaranteed victory – was long since earned.

In 1989, Bielsa was promoted to reserve team manager, and his methods were being noticed further up the club. “We shared the dressing room with the reserves,” said attacking midfielder Gerardo Martino. “You’d come in for training and there would be so many arrows on the whiteboard that you could barely make out where one ended and another began. You thought the Indians were coming! Within a year, that guy was our coach.”

“If my players weren’t human, I’d never lose”

Martino was vital to Bielsa’s acceptance in the first team in 1990. The side’s most talented and creative player, the indolent playmaker hated grafting – a trait Bielsa despised in a player.

“We had a chat before he started,” revealed Martino, “and he told me there was only one chance to play in his team: you had to run. He convinced everyone that his was the way. Every training session with him was different, he never repeated a single one. I would come back from international duty and go straight to one of Marcelo’s sessions because they were that good.”

Defend, attack and transition between the two at frightening speed: that was the mantra. Deny the opposition space anywhere, win the ball as high as possible and be dynamic to create chances.

Repeating those turnovers became second nature, even though they required independent thought – a curious contradiction Bielsa came to call repentizacion; essentially sight-reading for football. Even though each attacking situation was different, the squad worked so constantly on those transitions that the concept became ingrained, like playing a piece of music without practising it beforehand.

So determined was Bielsa to implement that strategy, he instructed keeper Norberto Scoponi to intentionally hit goal-kicks out of play for a throw-in, reasoning that the midfield could win the ball back quickly and create an artificial turnover. Newell’s became a pressing machine.

Inside a year, Bielsa’s side had won the 1990 Apertura; with the Argentine league season split into two parts followed by a play-off between the two champions, La Lepra (the Lepers) then triumphed in the championship decider on penalties against Boca Juniors.


“Newell’s, carajo!” became the club’s war cry – “Newell’s, you c***s!” Shouldered aloft by his charges at a baying Bombonera, Bielsa was taking on all-comers. El Loco had become the architect of chaos.

For six months, the club’s form dipped alarmingly: players were unable to live up to Bielsa’s physical and mental demands.

“They were very passionate team talks,” recalled midfielder Alfredo Berti, his manager’s on-field lieutenant to whom Bielsa addressed tactical instruction. “If you loved football, you got so much out of them. Every comment was discussed and Marcelo had the patience to explain it.”

For the first time, the workaholic Bielsa delegated. He began to set the squad’s younger players homework. They were to buy El Grafico, Solo Futbol and Clarin, and research how upcoming opposition played: usual formations, their last eight games, which substitutes they used, set-piece takers and threats. Their findings would then be presented to the squad and a training session built around them.

“It helped you find answers on the pitch,” Pochettino later recalled. “All that homework – I wish all my friends could have experienced at least one per cent of what I did.”

Out of the rut, Newell’s went on to secure the 1992 Clausura and reached the 1992 Copa Libertadores Final, losing on penalties to Sao Paulo with Cafu scoring the Brazilians’ decisive penalty.

Yet Bielsa could take no more. Like his future disciple Guardiola two decades later, the pressure of managing his boyhood club proved too much and he resigned as Newell’s boss, never to return. “If players weren’t human,” he said, “I’d never lose.”

“Don’t shoot! I’m Marcelo Bielsa!”

Bielsa taking a break could never be as easy as spending time with his wife Laura and two daughters. Over the following six years he became something of a coaching nomad, managing both Atlas and America in Mexico, before returning to Argentina with Velez Sarsfield – lifting the 1998 Clausura – and finally spending a nine-game spell with La Liga side Espanyol. Further idiosyncrasies followed.

Owned by a cabal of television executives, America insisted on Bielsa speaking only to their outlets. He so hated the imposition that by the time he became Argentina coach in the autumn of 1998, he refused to give any one-on-one interviews whatsoever.

“Why am I going to give an interview to a powerful guy, if that’s going to deny someone from the provinces?” he reasoned. “What’s your criteria to do that? My own interests? That’s just opportunism.”

Bielsa would talk to Argentina’s media only at press conferences, a method since repeated by Guardiola, but the deal-sweetener was that journalists could ask him anything and he would answer in detail. One press conference went on so long – more than four hours – that many members of the country’s fourth estate had to leave early or risk missing deadline for their evening editions.

Never one to do anything by halves, Bielsa finds it impossible to switch off. A frequent de-stress technique is to go for a run. At 2am. While listening to his favourite coaching mix tape detailing the 22 formations he believes are possible on a football pitch.

So engrossed was Bielsa while running through the grounds of Argentina’s Ezeiza training complex in early 1999, he couldn’t hear local police shouting at him. Finally noticing a dozen guns pointed at him, he hid behind a tree, pleading: “Don’t shoot! I’m Bielsa!”

NEXT: An inspiration to Simeone, Pochettino and Guardiola

Watching Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds was better than the Champions League

By Oliver Holt for the Mail on Sunday 21:33 22 Sep 2018, updated 07:04 23 Sep 2018
Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds have made a superb start, topping the Championship
Bielsa has long been a cult hero of management and is now in English football
Leeds won in midweek with football that would have suited Champions League
Bielsa's teams often burn bright before fading - we should enjoy it while it lasts
Marcelo Bielsa's post-match press conference in Howard's bar at Elland Road was coming to a close on Tuesday night when a French broadcast journalist decided to try his luck. He asked the Leeds United manager if he might take him aside when the questions were over and interview him for his radio show.

Bielsa did not look up. He had barely looked up once during the previous 10 minutes. He clasped his hands together and then unclasped them. He spoke in Spanish, each short sentence translated immediately by the man at his side.

'For the last 20 years,' he said, by way of polite refusal, 'I have only communicated with the public through press conferences. But thank you for the invitation.'

Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds have made a superb start to the season, topping the Championship
If the response sounded rather regal, that was OK. Those of us who had been lucky enough to watch Bielsa's team demolish Preston North End earlier in the evening already knew we were in the presence of royalty.

Bielsa has been a cult hero for a long time, revered even by men like Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino. To watch Leeds on Tuesday was to get a glorious glimpse of why.

Yes, there were exciting things going on elsewhere. Liverpool were locked in a thrilling five-goal battle with Paris Saint-Germain that went down to the wire and Spurs were blowing a 1-0 lead against Inter Milan at the San Siro, but I promise you that being inside Elland Road felt like more than a match for all that Champions League glamour. It felt like being let in on a secret.

Bielsa has long been a cult hero of management, and it was a surprise to see him in England
It felt as if there was nowhere you would rather be. And it felt as if people have not yet quite cottoned on to what is happening at one of English football's great old institutions.

Leeds were fluid and they were intense. They pressed hard without the ball and played fearlessly with it. At a club that has been an ill-used plaything of either unscrupulous or hapless owners for far too much of its recent history, Bielsa has finally brought some of the magic back.

However badly we want the Bielsa experiment to succeed, there are always going to be setbacks, too, and the intoxication of an unbeaten start was given a reality check on Saturday when Leeds slipped to their first league defeat of the season with a home reverse to lowly Birmingham City.

It will take more than one defeat to prick the optimism, though. Leeds are still top of the table, after all. Bielsa's reign here is in its infancy but it already feels as if Leeds are the damned United no more.

Leeds lost to Birmingham on Saturday, but that should not prick the optimism in Yorkshire
For now at least, they have been blessed. Outside Graveley's fish and chip shop, opposite the ground, a cluster of Leeds season ticket holders talked before the Preston game about how Bielsa had turned footballers they had viewed as little more than journeymen into players they scarcely recognised. The team had been hit by injuries to big names like Pablo Hernandez, Patrick Bamford and Kemar Roofe but the side hardly missed a beat.

To anyone like me who had not seen them under Bielsa before, Leeds were a revelation. They played the best football I've seen any team play this season. Yes, of course, they're playing at a lower level than the best teams in the Premier League and they were playing against a Preston side without a win in seven games but Bielsa's creation was still a sight to behold.

Leeds had quality and ball- playing confidence throughout the team. Samuel Saiz, their brilliant play-maker, was probably the pick of the bunch but the way that he and Mateusz Klich and Ezgjan Alioski made space for each other and picked out each other's runs and pinged short, clever passes to each other was a joy to watch. Jack Harrison, only in the team because of injuries, was superb out wide, too. At the back, Pontus Jansson, was the personification of calm and class.

Bielsa's devotees are still pinching themselves that he is in English football at all. He has been described as the most influential football coach since Johan Cruyff, a man who has inspired a generation of his former players, including Pochettino, former Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino and Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone, to follow him into management.

Leeds beat Preston in midweek playing football that would have suited the Champions League
The Argentine, 63, is revered for his eccentricity (he gained the nickname El Loco because he is an obsessive-compulsive whose attention to detail is so fanatical it makes people smile), and in his early days at Leeds, he made the players pick up litter at the training ground for three hours to give them an appreciation of how hard fans had to work to pay for a ticket. His preferred method of watching games at Elland Road is to sit on an upturned blue bucket placed next to the dugout.

But his eccentricity is a mask for a man who is regarded as the pioneer of much of the attacking football in vogue across the top European leagues. Bielsa is renowned for his attention to detail and for the style of football he teaches. From his first big job in charge of the Argentinian side Newell's Old Boys to spells at the helm of Argentina and Chile and stints with Athletic Bilbao and Marseille, his legend has grown.

He lasted just two days in charge of Lazio in 2016 and when he signed for Leeds in the summer, there were many who predicted a fiery and early end. It is still worth sounding a note of caution because Bielsa's teams often start fast and then wane under the pressure of the physical and mental demands his style places upon them. Some will interpret the loss to Birmingham as the first sign of that pressure telling.

Outside Graveley's, they still sell scarves that say 'Dirty Leeds' as an affectionate nod to the club's reputation in its 1970s halcyon days but Don Revie's Leeds were always about far more than steel and thunder.

There is hope that Leeds, after years of mismanagement, may finally be returning to the top
They were tough but the famous sequence of passes in that classic 7-0 dismissal of Southampton in the 1971-72 season showed they could play a bit, too.

That is one of the reasons why what is happening at Elland Road under Bielsa is capturing the imagination so easily. This Leeds team are not trying to hack and lump their way out of the Championship. They trying to pass and move and press their way back to the Premier League, which they have not graced for 14 years.

In Howard's, I asked him whether he had been worried that his style of play might have been overwhelmed by the physicality of the Championship.

'Among the championships around the world you observe, at least in the big countries regarding football, different styles, he said.

'All the styles are legitimate. To struggle to implement our style is always a challenge, it doesn't mean that the style is better than another one. To play well, no matter the kind of style you choose, is hard, so I would say the Championship has many different styles.'

Bielsa may blaze a trail across our game and then be gone as soon as he arrived but if you get a chance to see his Leeds team play, take it. He is a cult hero for a reason. We should celebrate him and his football while we can.

Synes Bielsa roterer lite og da er det litt tydelig av enkelte ikke tåler den store belastningen her, sånn som f.eks Kalvin som enten er genial og spiller som en konge eller så er han ræva og må tas av etter 30 min!!! mulig at dette går på taktiske disposisjoner som Bielsa uttaler men jeg synes mer det ser ut som om han er sliten og/eller ikke har dagen og trenger en kamps hvile innimellom.

Akkurat nå så lider vi helt tydelig av at vi ikke har et tydelig valg på angreps plass, vedder på at vi hadde vunnet med Roofe eller Bamford på topp i helga. Roberts er helt ok men synes han enda er langt fra å være spiss på et lag som jager opprykk. Håper virkelig at Roofe snart er tilbake. Samt veldig spent på hva Izzy Brown kan bidra med!!

Mateusz Klich opens up over 'military' life at Leeds United under Marcelo Bielsa

Joe Urquhart
Published: 13:42 Thursday 27 September 2018
Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich says life at Thorp Arch is like "being in the military" under Marcelo Bielsa and has opened up over the Argentine's training methods.


Klich has been one of the major surprises of the campaign for Leeds having spent the second half of last season away from the club on loan at Eredivisie side FC Utrecht.

 Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich.

The midfielder has started the Championship in red-hot form notching three goals and two assists in the opening nine games with his performances resulting in a first international call-up with Poland for the first time in four years.


The 28-year-old though has now opened up over life under El Loco in West Yorkshire after reviving his Whites career in fine style.

“It was a shock, very different," Klich told The Telegraph of Bielsa's training.


"We don’t play games, it is tactics, tactics, tactics and fitness. Pre-season was so hard, so much running, so much work in the gym and then tactical shape every afternoon.

Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich.

“We were exhausted. I was so tired. Yeah, some of the lads, they grumbled, it happens, but we respected him and we quickly understood what he was trying to do.

Leeds United coach Marcelo Bielsa discusses Thorp Arch changes


“Maybe we were worried it would not work in English football, in the Championship especially, because you play, on average, every three days, but I think it can work anywhere.

“It’s a really nice way of playing, the fans love it because we are always on the front foot. We defend high and we worry about what is happening in front of us.

Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich.

“We have managed to impose our game on the opposition so far. We like to go forward, to create danger in the opposition half. It really suits me.

“I don’t think we knew how good we could be. That changed against Stoke on the opening day. They had just come down from the Premier League and we played so well to beat them."


The Pole also compared the Bielsa regime at Thorp Arch to that of "being in the military" and conceded that United's players have no time to take their foot off the gas under the Argentine.

“He is very strict, it is like being in the military,” Klich added. “We go to the gym every day, before training, then we go out on the pitch. Every single meal, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, is together as a team.

Quiz: Can you identify the Leeds United player from their FIFA 19 avatar?

“There is no time to relax. It is harder than I have ever worked, but we enjoy it, honestly. All the players believe he can make us better, that we need to listen.

“Can we do it for the whole season? Hopefully, but there are 46 games in the Championship and it is one of the toughest, most competitive leagues in Europe. We know it will be hard, but it’s a really nice style of football to play and we as long we maintain the same intensity we have showed so far, I think we can get promoted. Leeds are a club that should definitely be in the Premier League.”


Klich also discussed the high press system that United have put in play this season believing the style of Bielsa's team is all about building trust with your team-mates.

“The system is about trust, you have to be able to know that the man alongside you, or behind you, is going to come with you," he continued. "There is no point pressing as one man, you have to do it as a team and you have to do it instinctively.

“When I go forward, I don’t even check who is with me, I don’t look behind, I know that the rest of the team have got my back. If you hesitate or are unsure, it doesn’t work. Everything is built on that bond, knowing you are part of a pack, trusting the man next to you.”

Klich:


Mateusz Klich opens up over 'military' life at Leeds United under Marcelo Bielsa

Hadde tenkt å sette dette intervjuet i Bielsa-tråden jeg også. Jeg syns Mateusz får frem mange 'nye innblikk' i life under Marcelo:


Om treningene:

"We don’t play games, it is tactics, tactics, tactics and fitness. Pre-season was so hard, so much running, so much work in the gym and then tactical shape every afternoon.



De var usikker før de første kampene, akkurat som supporterne:


“Maybe we were worried it would not work in English football, in the Championship especially, because you play, on average, every three days,
but I think it can work anywhere.


Ã…pnings-seieren mot Stoke åpnet øynene til spillerne, faktisk:

“I don’t think we knew how good we could be. That changed against Stoke on the opening day. They had just come down from the Premier League and we played so well to beat them."


Militærliv!

“He is very strict, it is like being in the military,” Klich added. “We go to the gym every day, before training, then we go out on the pitch. Every single meal, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, is together as a team.



Også de er urolig mht om de holder hele sesongen:

“Can we do it for the whole season? Hopefully, but there are 46 games in the Championship and it is one of the toughest, most competitive leagues in Europe.

Man må stole på hverandre!

Litt av problemet mot Birmingham:

“Each player was frustrated,” he said. “Nobody thought we would lose and this was the problem. But it’s good that each player thinks it’s not good when we lose. We know what was wrong.


The winger revealed how Bielsa’s “hatred” of losing led to a hard week of training at Thorp Arch following Leeds’ first defeat of the Championship season last Saturday.

“It’s better not to lose when you have Marcelo as a coach,” he said. “He hates this. You see him and how he is.

Det viktigste som skjer det neste kalenderåret er at vi beholder Bielsa gjennom hele denne, og inn i neste sesong.

David Prutton: Why Bielsa’s man management skills have been so impressive at Leeds United

David Prutton
Published: 06:00 Monday 01 October 2018
When you hear a manager saying he’ll take responsibility for a poor game, you’re not always sure what he means. Is he conceding that the result was essentially his fault? Or is he saying that when all’s said and done, it’s him who’ll pay with his job if his players don’t get a grip?


Taking responsibility for a team who let you down is very different to taking responsibility for the way you prepared them.

 Marcelo Bielsa.
Marcelo Bielsa.
It’s possible to hold your hands up while at the same time listing individual errors and basically saying ‘look, once the players cross the white line…’

In other words, point the finger elsewhere.

With Marcelo Bielsa, I doubt he cares about PR or bothers with calculated statements. It seems to me that he says what’s in his head.

So when you read about him blaming himself for Leeds United’s defeat to Birmingham City – and not only that, specifically outlining where he went wrong – there’s no suggestion of him fishing for headlines.

As an example of good man management it’s right up there. But he won’t always be this forgiving.

David Prutton
As one of his players, I’d appreciate that style of management immediately.

I’d be a little wary too because Bielsa’s temperament tells me that he probably pulled no punches when his squad got back to the training ground last week.

The biggest problem might have been his formation and the role that Kalvin Phillips was asked to play in front of the back four but there were errors over the course of 90 minutes which won’t have gone unnoticed.

I read some quote
