    They are good to watch but sooo naive, absolute bread and butter for a Jose side. I wasn’t that confident before the game, I thought they’d show us a bit of respect and learn from Saints and Utd, but they didn’t, thankfully.

    The way it started I was expecting the worse! Thankfully Dear Jose proved me wrong yet again.
    It was a good game for us actually!

    I only caught the last 30 mins but not sure I’ve ever heard a commentary team wax lyrical and spend so much time taking about how great a coach is when his team are losing 3-0.

    The love in with Bielsa and Leeds is quite puzzling. The more they lose the ball and the more goals they concede the more praise they get.

    I have never understood the hype that surrounds him to be honest.

    We took 15-20 mins to get going, but from then on, to what you saw, we totally outclassed them.

    Hugo had a very easy game. It was a beat down, absolutely mental that Leeds got any credit for it.

    They gifted us easy possession in the final third at least half a dozen times, due to their inability to play out.

    The circle toss over them is a joke
    Same with Arsenal, win 3 games and now they are back and in the hunt for the CL, they are still 11th

    He came up with a system which unless you spend unlimited funds on a large squad (Pep) season on season the players burn out and fall away.

    I am not sure whats great about that!

    Or the league has a mid-season COVID break but don't tell the Leeds trolls I said that.

    Look at the pundits .. idiots that tactics are beyond their comprehension.

    Leeds is the classic "passun" side .. with all the stupidity that comes with it.

    He’s copying AVB, who says it gives him a better read of the game.

    We beat Leeds 3-0, were comfortable throughout really, but christ on a bike, listening to the commentary i thought we were up against Pep's Barcelona team. Absolute jizzfest over Leeds attacking.

    Leeds-elona from the sounds of it.

    Even seemingly reasonable Leeds fans get upset if you suggest that.

    This season, with its slightly higher frequency of games, seems to have brought on the annual burnout earlier than usual. What covid giveth, covid taketh away.
