Re: Heckingbottom *really* sacked

It's exciting.  I love the way people who don't know Leeds. Think it's just another manager sacked after a short reign.  All the pieces would be in place for Radz to make a real push now.  FFP check, Ideaguchi and Roberts in the squad check, Bartley and Hernandez to come in, Bielsa taking over.

If all that happens and we still finish mid table something is very wrong.

Re: Heckingbottom *really* sacked

I just read an article on him, seems many top managers have worked with him or usve somevessence of his methods. Guardiola, pochettino, Conte. Even Klopps high pressing game is based on his philosophy. We’ll see what happens, if we do get him, it should be quite funny. Suspect he’ll only last a season with us though.

Bielsa? Lazy research.

I'll take that bet. There's always been something wrong with this team. Sutton, Newport in cups, 8 wins in 9 followed by 10 defeats in the league. If the almighty would resurrect Bill Shankly and he agreed to manage them, they would go wrong somewhere.
Wtf is Bielsa? Looks like the escaped convict in the film of Great Expectations. Don't think he has a soft center either. Ah well, I'll put that relegation bet on again. Got to come up sometime.

Sorry, based on Frank’s system who had been inspired by Sacchi at AC Milan who played the same system as Bielsa, who himself was inspired by Menotti.

Re: Heckingbottom *really* sacked

Whatever you think of Heckingbot it's quite shitty to sack him whilst he's away on a family holiday. It's not as if the season has only just finished.

Aye and apparently they’ve been talking to the Argie for 3 weeks or so. Kinnear reported to have flown over to meet his team.

Football has to be one of the most classless industries out there.

Re: Heckingbottom *really* sacked

Unless the ownership give the new manager their full backing and let him stay for a season... ( at some point they have to be accountable for the decisions and appointments they make ) and the fans give the next poor fucker a fair go before getting on his back then it doesnt matter if its ZZ, Fat Sam or the new Messiah who walks through the door.

Re: Heckingbottom *really* sacked

Back to the point of the thread, I am just mightily relieved that The Heck has gone. Nice bloke, but not very effective at all. The current squad is far better than the run-in of results they achieved would suggest, I am absolutely convinced of it.

Bring in the nutter Argie

Let's roll with the ups and downs - it'll be fun

The static generated from The Kop and South Stand will send him into melt down with more (and more) elaborate implosions at each discharge

After the half season he's just had I think he's got some balls going on holiday.

Re: Heckingbottom *really* sacked

They waited until June 1 when his compo went down on from 1 mill to 500 grand. I won't be shedding any tears for the fella. Relegated one team, took another backwards, here's half a million, lad!

Everything about Leeds gets more bonkers by the season.....management, players, fans.  Let’s recruit serious bonkers and excel in something we are good it.  It’s not as if we are ever going to be any good again, is it?

In a sanitised world, run by Sky and accountants, we could become the antithesis of modern football.
