Imagine what Bielsa could do with better quality players? What he's achieving with some very average players is very impressive. Or would it be more difficult for him to get more technical, higher quality players to run themselves into the ground like this Leeds team do? A lot of their game plan seems to be based on being fitter than the opposition. As a result, they always seem to be able to get overloads all over the pitch.

problem in the past as with bilbao and Marseille is his teams fall off a cliff fitness wise late in the season

 

will be interesting to see if that happens again or they stay the course at this level.

 

wolves proved you can bank in a do a number on them though, thats bielsa teams heel a low block

maybe the wrong clip to use as It’s very easy to do when 3 nil up and the opposition have to blow their tactics out the window.

Couldn't disagree more, it's far harder to instill the motivation to commit that many forward in the last seconds of the game when it's already won.

Ok and is it hard to install showboating also when the game is won...?

 

It is very easy to commit because to a agree its not manager driven but the players on the pitch running away with the moment, take Spurs 3 nil up u think Jose would have been impressed with them bombing forward to end up 3:3?

He would have went berserk at them at FT that is no way a manager would want his players to manage a game that is a fans view of managing a game!

Leeds could have a field day with us in our present form. Our midfield isnt energetic or mobile enough to cope with the numbers they get forward. 

 

We'd have to have a very very precise day in possession.

Errrm, you mean, just like Man.city..:)

Perfect example there of bad refereeing in PL.....Minimal contact on Mahrez who goes down screaming...AnthonybTaylor buys it and gives free kick....The ref we had on Thursday would have told Mahrez to man up and wave play on 

Also just seen Rice break away and he got pulled back but no card???

 

Man City get away with so many tactical fouls like this and then they have the audacity to moan about everyone else.

To be honest, of all the weird shit happening in the world in 2020, Antonio, Calvert Lewin and ****ing Bamford being productive premier league goal scorers is by far and away the strangest. 

 

It's no wonder Rodgers has recalled Slimani, he obviously recognises we're living in opposite world.

Didn't they change the rule on that, so the card is negated by the advantage?
