What do you mean, again ??

:lolno:

He’s played 2/3 times hasn’t he (from the bench).
When you retire, you switch bosses - from the one that hired you, to the one that married you.

I presume some Leeds fans had the good sense again to start checking the flights out of Yorkshire to figure out where Radz has gone to give us a clue on the player he intends signing this week. Hopefully they were not too hungover/drunk to remember their commitments to the club. We are premier league now and everyone has to up their game!

I hope we give him an extension on reduced terms, and continue to house him for his rehabilitation. He could've left on June 30, but he didn't; and now he's out for 9 months. I think Berardi deserves such, after his years of service to the club.

I would suspect he'd be looking at ageing quality pro's (with the right attitude for Bielsa) who are free agents in the summer.
We need to strengthen that spine so I'd expect experience to come in at GK, DC, MC and possibly even up front, though pace and finishing would be my top priority there.

I think 8-10 for the first team is very unlikely. I doubt Orta will repeat the errors of his first summer here, particularly with Bielsa in charge and with his fondness for a small squad. I also doubt we'll be looking to sign cheap 30 year olds too. I agree that we'll probably look to reinforce the spine though. Supposedly we're targeting domestic players.

Definitely, he deserves nothing less, and some of our new found Premiership income should be put to one side to do the right thing by Gaetano. :clap:

Joe Gelhardt is a genuine target according to Graham Smyth.

It might be that someone like Jan Vertonghen fancies a season or two under him before retiring ?
I wonder if there's anyone from his recent clubs (Bilbao, Marseilles, LOSC) who appreciated him enough to want to work with him again ?


A certain Messi apparently stated that he would have loved to play under Bielsa.......... :wtf: :D


I think I would literally wet my pants if this happened.
