My view will shift with achievement (or not) , again its very binary ...... win or lose.
Your point re Maximus backs my point in that he fought as he did and he won...(doing it the right way) , if he’d fought well and being slain first time out, you wouldn’t be talking about him now.
Not sure comparing fighting to the best sports coach that’s ever lived is relevant anyway, but each to their own.
Your opinion on MB doing nothing wrong is fine, but for me the facts speak otherwise. And whilst yours might be a popular view amongst Lufc fans, in football more broadly it would be the minority position. If you were allowed to watch other teams sessions, you wouldn’t need to do it from a path outside the ground!
Competitive wise, Wilder has done more with less, not sure with Farke.
He hasn’t had top jobs because he doesn’t win things, it’s not rocket science. Even West Ham turned him down a while back.
We could afford more as a club if we weren’t paying the manager so much!
Agree Wilder has done a great job, if you read back on this forum you will see I've been impressed by the way they play since they came to ER and schooled us last season. This season he's managed to build on that rather than see if fade away - he deserves huge credit for the job he's done. I don't fully*
agree he's done more with less though, he's built that team, they're his players and he's kept them together/added to it for over 3 years. Essentially they're Grayson's Leeds** except rather than rip it after missing play-offs they've stayed the course.
As for what MB has/hasn't done wrong, I'm sticking the binary stance within the rules, I thought you might like that. He didn't break any rules, the fact he was punished for not breaking any rules was ludicrous but it was better for our season to not fight it.
*Undeniably they have, they had a smaller wage bill and spent less on players last season, I expect that'll still be the case when this season's accounts are published. But the associated context is worthy of note IMO. I do think the value of consistency in a team sport is often understated and I'm fully prepared to accept the level of consistency Bielsa has benefited from is a factor in this season's improvement.
**I'm aware this doesn't fully work, we made a lot of signings when we came up but the core was consistent.
