Bielsa Snubbed This Temptation To Come To Leeds United: Why He Can Go Into Club’s Folklore

By Ayush Chaurasia There is no doubt that Marcelo Bielsa has been able to transform Leeds United in a short span with a minimal number of signings. ‘El Loco’ as he is often called took the gamble to come to the English second division even though he has experience of managing national teams like Argentina and Chile. Latest reports suggest that the Mexican national team wanted Bielsa in the summer after the World Cup. However, the Argentine manager was keen on staying and working with the Whites. It’s not only about the results, but the brand of football which the Whites are playing that has brought such level of optimism around the club. One doesn’t usually see teams building from the back and playing with such high-intensity with or without the ball. The forwards are always on the move and most of the players are fluid and flexible in their approach. Hull City manager Nigel Adkins gave a big testament on how Bielsa has managed to change the Whites. He had said,”Leeds are one of the best sides I’ve seen in the Championship for a very long time. We’re not on a level playing field with them, and they’ll take some sides …read more


Roofe, Berardi and Hernandez To Return | 4-1-4-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup Vs Blackburn Rovers

By Ayush Chaurasia Leeds United have stuttered, huffed and puffed in the last few games. However, they are still just two points off the top of the table, and they would be looking to kickstart things after the international break against Blackburn Rovers. United will also see some of their key first team players getting fit in time for this tough away game at Ewood Park. Blackburn Rovers have played well in patches, but they haven’t managed to get any sort of consistency going and are rightfully sitting on the 10th spot at the moment. Keeping the free-flowing Whites forwards in check would be a massive task for the Rovers’ defence. Team News Kemar Roofe, Gaetano Berardi, Pablo Hernandez and Conor Shaughnessy are going to be available for selection after their injury layout. Roofe and Berardi recently played for the u-23 but Hernandez was still missing so maybe the Spaniard is yet not a hundred per cent. Luke Ayling will miss out due to suspension, and Barry Douglas continues to remain absent. Leeds United’s Predicted Lineup vs Blackburn Rovers Formation (4-3-3) Defence Bailey Peacock Farrell has had some testing times in goal, but overall he has done well. He should keep his place over Jamal Blackman. Liam Cooper and Pontus Jansson …read more

Leeds owner calls for a Premier League Two to replace Championship

By David Conn • Andrea Radrizzani says Championship is unsustainable• Radrizzani claims lack of cash leads to crisis and takeovers The Leeds owner, Andrea Radrizzani, has called for a Premier League Two, saying the Championship does not make enough TV money for the division to be sustainable, which condemns its clubs to repeated crisis and takeovers. The Championship is blighted, he said, by EFL money being too little and shared with clubs in Leagues One and Two, and the “huge gap” with clubs relegated from the Premier League benefitting from multimillion-pound parachute payments. Radrizzani, who took over Leeds in January 2017, said fellow chairmen, who he did not identify, agree a reconstruction is needed.
