Marcelo Bielsa has decided to step down from his post as head coach with immediate effect after just one season in charge, Leeds United have announced today on their official site. The heartbreaking defeat to Derby in the play offs was the last match in charge for El Loco. He is followed out of the club by his trusted staff.
In the released statement owner Andrea Radrizzani thanked Bielsa for his relentless effort and announced Leeds will ring their centenary with the appointment of a new manager in White Wolf. Wolf has put pen to paper on a one year deal that sees him take charge as manager of arguably the biggest club in English football outside Premier League.
The new staff team consist of some high profile names such as assistant manager Dennis Bergkamp, GK coach Abel Resino, Dave Watson, Paul Robinson.
Former captain Richard Naylor was named assistant manager to the under 23, who is joined by GK coach Pedro Alba in giving a helpful hand to Carlos Corberan, who remains under 23 manager. Fitness Coach Anthony Colbert is going to join later, giving time for the current club to find a suitable replacement.

Tactics

In terms of tactic, this is my core tactic.
https://i.imgur.com/qZKZpbr.jpg
As for player instructions, depending on what players are on the field and against what team i play. i only use this 4 extra instructions, for the 2 CD and 2 wingers
https://i.imgur.com/6lGKVFF.jpg
In terms of vision, this are the chairman's request for the 1st season.
https://i.imgur.com/rmOKluR.jpg

The first thing on my manager agenda was to increase the percentage of the transfer revenue
https://i.imgur.com/9XSvHIC.jpg
With that done, besides the staff, which i already showed you, i started the most important and interesting part of the manager's job. Recruiting.
In order to get some transfer funds i had to sell some players first. The only players i managed to move on decent sums were Barry Douglas (£6.5M), Alioski (£9M) and Berardi (£4.2M).
O'Kane and Bouy were moved on small fees to release some wages, while Balboa and Ousama i preferred to move now as they are too many attacking options on the U23 team to allow a good number of games to all of them. Jack Harrison' loan was cut short
With more than £20M in transfer funds i started building the new Leeds, and my main focus was on bringing the young wonderkids that are affordable of course.
https://i.imgur.com/QC3Mnmn.jpg
The exceptions were Ferreira, the CD brought for free and Meling the LB bought for £1M from Rosenborg. Also Tavares was brought only on loan from SLB without any future transfer fee clause inserted.
The main players i missed during this transfer window are Nicolo Armini, the young CD from Lazio who decided to sign a new contract with Lazio and leave on loan and Janni Serra, a good target man in my eyes, who also preferred to remain at his old club.

https://i.imgur.com/YEfWndy.jpg
Some of the wages those young lads are on are incredible. 15 years old and earning 78k a year yes please!
Some of the wages those young lads are on are incredible. 15 years old and earning 78k a year yes please!


Yes, i agree, but in about 4 seasons, if you try to buy him, his wage demands will add another 2 zeros so this is a smart investment . I am not even mentioning the transfer fees
Preseason and start of Championship

The preseason was promising although Pablo Hernandez and Helder Costa missed most of it through injury. This gave more playing time to Robbie Gotts and Lazar Samardzic, which they took full advantage of. Also Tomas Tavares impressed me so much during pre-season i forgot completely about recalling Lewie Coyle. Only an injury sustained in the last game of preseason delayed the portuguese debut on RB.
The highlight from the preseason was the win against Ajax in Holland after a long session of penalties.
https://i.imgur.com/Db3Jln7.jpg

The odds for the Championship awards:
https://i.imgur.com/d9hetWM.jpg

And finally, the long awaited season's debut match was here. And is started brightly with a win against Bristol City
https://i.imgur.com/R7TH1ig.jpg

The transfer window closed
https://i.imgur.com/779pAhW.jpg
with some financial details also published
https://i.imgur.com/93faerS.jpg

Forest was next in line, before a very tight affair in the Carabao Cup against local rivals Sheff Wed. Leeds continued their winning ways against Wigan, Brentford, Stoke, Barnsley(Carabao Cup) and Swansea.

The end of August and the table looks like this

while this is the monthly review
https://i.imgur.com/FKzHl55.jpg


September started with a very disputed local rivalry against Barnsley. With Leeds already defeating Barnsley in the Carabao Cup, the Reds were looking for revenge. They made the most of it but in the end could not stop Leeds winning ways.
https://i.imgur.com/ipeI4Ty.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/GJqDGX0.jpg
Next, it was time for Leeds to take revenge for last season PlayOffs defeat against Derby
https://i.imgur.com/y2gUooz.jpg

The first Premier League team Leeds encountered this season was no match

First hiccup

October started slower for Leeds.
First a draw against promotion rivals WBA that Leeds managed to save late in the game
https://i.imgur.com/MkHA8P7.jpg

Next game was against historic rivals Millwall and it had everything needed for the neutral spectator
https://i.imgur.com/FXlAvox.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/YNcroBZ.jpg

After this the inevitable happened. The 1st defeat of the season after a fluke game that Birmingham did not merit to win in any way, but they did
https://i.imgur.com/GSAVKPD.jpg

But Leeds managed to pick themselves up and continued with wins against PNE and local rivals Sheff Wed
https://i.imgur.com/zPmMB4S.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/Nw8Ftd8.jpg

The month ended with a 4th Rnd win at Goodison Park against Everton in the Carabao Cup

End of the Centenary year

December is always a tricky month. Hectic schedule, lots of games.
First victims were local rivals Huddersfield. They are having a torrid season and the appointment of Sam Allardyce is still early days.
https://i.imgur.com/ObR9GuP.jpg
It was time for Leeds to suffer defeat in one of the local rivalries as Hull won 2-0 at Elland Road. Although without key man Bowen injured, Grosicki was too much to handle for the Leeds defense. But the Whites bounced back with a win against historic rivals Cardiff before advancing in the Semi Final of the Carabao Cup with a comfortable win against Peterborough.
https://i.imgur.com/tjInjHA.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/yaYHQaj.jpg

There was no time to celebrate as 2nd place Fulham was awaiting Leeds at Craven Cottage. Leeds manage to make the most of Odoi's early bath to consolidate the lead ahead in the Championship
https://i.imgur.com/v0Gri48.jpg
Another victory against PNE and the revenge win against Birmingham made Leeds fans holidays more than enjoyable.

https://i.imgur.com/foPSYQ3.jpg

With Leeds doing so good in the league, rumors are already starting to surface about a possible takeover
https://i.imgur.com/odUib0C.jpg

January is another busy month. Wolves are all that stands between Leeds and the Final of the Carabao Cup. Huddersfield are the 3Rn FA Cup opponent while in the Championship WBA, Sheff Wed, QPR and Millwall will look to do as much damage to Leeds promotion push as possible.
The transfer window is not announcing too much movement in for the Whites. Maybe a new winger to cover for the 2 portuguese players Trincao and Helder Costa. But before that happens a few players have to go out like Forshaw and Dallas.
The tactic is spot on at the moment with Leeds having the 2nd best defense in the Championship after Fulham and the best attack in the league.
New year, same pace

Leeds started 2020 with an away win against West Brom.
https://i.imgur.com/skpJlkA.jpg
and continued with a trip to local rivals Huddersfield for the FA Cup. The Terriers are having an awful season, being drawn into the relegation fight. They are now managed by Sam Allardyce, once England's manager. That did not seem to impress Leeds too much, as they took early control of the game. Unfortunately McCalmont's red card did offer them the chance to get back in the game, which they did but White's screamer in the 85 min was enough to secure passage in the next round of the FA Cup
https://i.imgur.com/tyWaFMt.jpg
The 1st Leg of the SemiFinal against Wolves was a tight affair that could have ended badly. Without Helder Costa, who is on loan from Wolves, the team suffered in attack but luckily Jude Bellingham scored a late, late goal to keep hopes up for a final.
https://i.imgur.com/o546LZE.jpg
Took 4 minutes for Sheff Wed to realize Leeds is a different level this season. Their Yorkshire rivals coached by former Leeds Garry Monk did not stand a chance.
https://i.imgur.com/qNuRAfC.jpg
Next was QPR, one if the 3 teams that won against the Whites. With revenge in mind, Leeds played a beautiful match, a real advert for the game
https://i.imgur.com/SrmpD0Y.jpg
News of a possible takeover were not slowing Leeds down
https://i.imgur.com/wnt8LJy.jpg
and Millwall was the next victim on Elland Road before the cups tournaments.
https://i.imgur.com/yWYeqB8.jpg
Premier League Leicester came into town for the FA Cup 4th Rnd. A chance for a few players less used to impress. And indeed they did
https://i.imgur.com/yjNXZ1o.jpg
Last game of the month was the most important too.
The 2nd leg of the Carabao Cup SemiFinal against Wolves who had a 1 goal lead from the 1st leg. No away goal rule rules and no extra time in place for the Cup. Keen to take revenge for the 1st leg loss, Leeds took control of the game and they were 2-0 up towards the final of the game. Unfortunately Diego Jota equalised with 15 minutes left to play so the game went to penalties. And is was Pedro Neto from Wolves who missed first, on the 7th try, to put Leeds in the Final against Premier League leaders Man City
https://i.imgur.com/np23tX4.jpg

Not a lot of glamorous activity on the transfer market. Leeds sold Adam Forshaw to Crystal Palace to get rid of his wage.
French wonderkid Rayan Cherki finally joined the club, as he was old enough. Martin Terrier was loaned in from OL for the next 12 month, no future transfer fee included. A player who can play in many positions, he was brought to cover the 2 portuguese wizards.
https://i.imgur.com/XTxL1mx.jpg
Diego Boza and Chris Mochrie are 2 young players who also joined the club but there are more to develop before they can start.
https://i.imgur.com/WFr5iyL.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/PTeFiwf.jpg
Leeds loaned out Leif Davis (Stoke), Liam McCarron (Barnsley), Robbie Gots and Ryan Edmondson (Preston) to further their development which prompted the free transfer of Chris Mavinga, who spend January on trial with Leeds.
https://i.imgur.com/42WJspl.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/vwmmAh3.jpg
Also Pablo Hernandez and Ricardo Ferreira will join, in the summer, for free Sampdoria and Braga.
https://i.imgur.com/SAJzQCP.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/y1rVMBC.jpg
At the end of January the Championship table was looking like this
https://i.imgur.com/gDTYTVm.jpg

1st game of February and high flying Wigan came to Elland Road to get their wings clipped.
https://i.imgur.com/Lslk2kF.jpg
Next were Nottm Forest, another club with a lot of tradition stuck in the 2nd division. Not a great season for them and Leeds pilled on the misery.
https://i.imgur.com/UQ9wwAl.jpg

Brentford were determined to stop the attacking prowess of Leeds and they almost succeeded, only for a last gasp goal from newcomer Terrier to continue Leeds winning ways.
https://i.imgur.com/9a3R2hj.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/PgtjeKY.jpg

By now it was clear Leeds march back to the PL is unstoppable
https://i.imgur.com/rW8R1cv.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/ltpUuA3.jpg

The game against 2nd place Bristol was one one of those you seem destined to lose. All my players forgot to play, making a lot of individual mistakes. The kind of match that makes you wish you can change the whole team at half time. Fortunately Leeds manged a draw that felt like a win.
https://i.imgur.com/Gzrdk9V.jpg

But Leeds got back to their winning ways against Reading
https://i.imgur.com/Xs2Mcfr.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/EVyZzDy.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/45I5XKb.jpg

The last game of February brought a terrific game. Leeds decided to rest all the players who are going to start in the Final of Carabao Cup, so the line up from the Boro game consisted more of fringe players.
Things started good for Leeds and McCalmont opened the score quickly. But Boro had a great response and 15 min later they were up 3-1. Some inspired substitutes did bring Leeds back in the game and offered an otherwise lackluster Nketiah the chance to bring the win in the 89 min.
The comeback kings were here and what an inspiring story before the final.
https://i.imgur.com/aClqGc0.jpg

End of February Championship table looks like this

Highs and lows of an amazing season

After that electrifying game against Boro, Leeds were off to Wembley for the Carabao Cup Final.
This year's Final brings face to face the leaders of the 1st and 2nd division of the English football. Man City, Premier League champions, current cup holders and leaders at the time of the PL versus Leeds United, the awakening giant leading the Championship.
https://i.imgur.com/6VI246q.jpg
About the game, not much to say. A penalty decided it. Liam Cooper was shoved by Rodri and Klich sent the keeper the wrong way to score it. I would have expected a lot of pressure, especially towards the end of the game, but Man City did not seem to have an inspired day. Leeds won their 1st trophy since the 1992 Charity Shield vs Liverpool.
https://i.imgur.com/21IKkX2.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/OqMMkgw.jpg

There no time to celebrate, as another PL team was expecting Leeds to measure forces in the FA Cup 5th Rnd
Spurs started better on home ground and open the score after 7 minutes, but Leeds found a quick response through Arsenal loaned striker Eddie Nketiah. Trincao brought victory to the Whites in the 72 min but things could have turned out completely different if Harry Kane's 89 min penalty would not have been parried by Kiko Casilla.
https://i.imgur.com/pSAZIWR.jpg

Leeds did not slowed down and secured promotion after the against Huddersfield.
https://i.imgur.com/HtxknUq.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/4lYSmHO.jpg

After the international break, Leeds also clinched the title
https://i.imgur.com/yugclmS.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/ocbrIFK.jpg


After the victory against Fulham, which meant loosing Tavares for what i thought would be the rest of the season, the form in the Championship dipped abruptly.
https://i.imgur.com/Mc3CPqz.jpg

Thankfully, the players were still showing up in the FA Cup. At least some of them. QPR provided a stern resistance in the Qtr Final but in the end Terrier's form was too much to handle
https://i.imgur.com/HnklJAN.jpg

Leeds enter into a down spiral form wise so i am not going to insist on it. But it did allowed me to test some youngsters. Congratulations to Rayan Cherki for establishing a new record for the Championship
https://i.imgur.com/XfEFbr3.jpg

By the end of March the table was looking like this
https://i.imgur.com/X7H18XK.jpg

The FA Cup Semi Final brought the rematch of the Carabao Cup final. Leeds and Man City locked horns again on Wembley.
Without much success for the Citizens, again. Leeds were 2-0 up at the break
https://i.imgur.com/33L7IVf.jpg

Tactic wise, this is how the team looked
https://i.imgur.com/EAeeoUP.jpg

Just before Phillips deflected Bernardo Silva's shot i did change the tactic. McCalmont replaced Samardzic and tactic change to a 4-1-4-1, with Phillips dropping as a DM, McCalmont a DLP in place of Phillips and Klich as a AP. In the last 10 minutes, i went for a direct counter attack style, with a defensive mentality and with the 2 wingers dropped lower. Enough to claim another win.
https://i.imgur.com/r8uVcxn.jpg

Rumors of a possible takeover are still hot in the news
https://i.imgur.com/q2GLL1P.jpg

Leeds managed to pickup some records, barely.
https://i.imgur.com/6CDoR42.jpg

End of centenary season

Last game of the season brought an historic rival, Chelsea, in the FA Cup Final. The Blues finished PL on 4th place in the 1st season under Lampard. But that does not mean too much for the Whites, especially as the opportunity for revenge is there, after last season's Play Off defeat against Derby managed by Lampard.
While Chelsea had the initiative in the beginning, Leeds had the 1st strike thanks to a set piece finalized by Badiashile. A product of the Chelsea youth academy, Bamford hit next, soon after the break and the Whites were in line for the last trophy of the season. Changed my tactic to make sure Chelsea will not have the chance to make a comeback like Derby last season.
https://i.imgur.com/yT8asul.jpg
Ben White finished an impressive loan season with the final goal. 3-0 and this is the way we ended
https://i.imgur.com/hSvRD67.jpg
Badiashile won the POM with an impressive outing, both defensive and attacking.

And the season review
https://i.imgur.com/EPxfrEP.jpg
The Whites are back

Preparing for the new season, together with the Olympics, made the start of it quite hectic to deal with.
In terms of transfers, i decided to change most of the squad to make sure i can face the competition of the PL but also be able to compete in Europe.
Defense was changed almost completely, only keeper Casilla and defender Badiashile were kept. Keeper Woodman, Aarons (RB), Piccini (RB), Pongracic (CD), Holding (CD), Bella-Kotchap (CD), Chilwell (LB)and Del'Orco (LB) are the new faces in defense. The midfield also suffered changes with the additions of Cataldi (CM), Bowen (LW), Rafinha (CAM) and Buendia (CAM) while for strikers i went with Isak (ST), Bozenik (ST) and loaned Esposito (ST) from Inter. 3 times a new record purchase for Leeds was made this transfer window. First it was Aarons from Norwich, than Chilwell from Leicester and in the final hours of the transfer window Emi Buendia from Norwich. I would have bought Holding now but i did not had the money so i had to settle for a loan with an obligatory fee to buy.
https://i.imgur.com/ZqA9R6v.jpg
I would have loved to raid Norwich and Leicester, the relegated teams, but i did not have enough transfer budget to do it.
https://i.imgur.com/skEXs6y.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/vV0tbpC.jpg

One of the highlight of the season will definitely be Marcelo Bielsa's visit to Elland Road. After Pep left the Citizens at the end of last season, the board decided the new man to take charge is the former Leeds manager. The Elland Road fans are still keeping him in high regard.
https://i.imgur.com/TLudWtb.jpg

U23 manager Carlos Corberan left the club and joined La Liga Malaga as manager.

And the season started with the Community Shield against current PL and Champions League winners Liverpool. Leeds put a brave fight and managed to get over getting equalized in extra time to win the 1st trophy of the season after penalties. Very hard to resist the Reds. Klopp managed to make an explosive team and i am curious how the season will continue for them

Transfer window roundup
https://i.imgur.com/ts7LfcL.jpg
The Olympic tournament - off topic

Besides preparing the Whites for the 1st PL season after a long time, i decided taking my chances at the Olympic tournament. France U23 was my pick.
The Olympics is a special tournament football related. As a manager, you can only pick a squad of 18 players and you have to find versatile players in order to try to make it as far as possible. The schedule is tight and you have at most 3 days of rest in between matches. Also, although age related they are eligible, you cannot pick players who were already called for the final tournament played by the big side. So no Mbappe.
U23 were in group C along side the U23 nations of USA, Australia and Nigeria. Easy group which was won after 3 victories, 7-1 goal. South Korea was next in the Qtr Final. 3-0 and the chance to play against rivals Spain in the Semi Final. The first tough game of the tournament and France needed an 120 min extra time goal to make to make to the Final.
The Final had even more drama than the Semi. The brazilians were 2-0 up at the break. Now, what the match chronicle does not tell you is that France had not 1, not 2 but 3 goals ruled as offside and at least the 1st one was not an offside. Things started changing after Gustavo Assuncao's red card from the 57 min. Terrier brought the hope back after a goal was finally allowed by the referee. Todibo equalized late in the game to send it to extra time. And there Ben Yedder scored what proof to be the winner.
