I’m not saying anyone is right or wrong, I’m just trying to understand the logic.
Of course the league isn’t 23 games long, but surely what happened more recently is a better indicator of future performance than something that happened 8/9 months ago?
If you think Bielsa can get auto promotion here, then he needs to get back to pre Xmas form. He had 23 games to do that this season...and didn’t.
So, again I ask, why will next year be different to these last 23 games.....what needs to change.? What will change?
Your argument is that pre Xmas Leeds is the norm, when all the evidence points against that been true.
The likely truth lies between the 2 positions, I.e. playoffs again...maybe.
I've already stated what we need - and it certainly isn't a new coach. We need a striker that can actually score goals.
Its no coincidence that as soon a Roofe got injured and Bumford came in, our results dipped. Added to that the loss of Saiz in the final third. Again, if we had a decent striker all season, like Gayle, we would be in the PL. Anyone can see that.
