Marcelo Bielsa is a genius. Luke Ayling had been struggling since his return from injury, so a few days ago he made a comment on how vital and important Ayling is to LUFC (which he is) and he put in a close to MOTM performance against Swansea.

Players really buy into the positive reinforcement from gaffers (which is a big reason Mourinho failed at Manure)

Seen some real jerkoffs as manager of Leeds over the years (FO Terry Veneables) so its a surreal feeling having a gaffer of Bielsa's ilk at the club, easily the best thing to happen at LUFC since we got relegated from the Premier League. #MOT

Watched this mornings game and Ayling was better then he had been but still gives the ball away too easily and gave away a ridiculous penalty which could have been costly. Hopefully he continues to improve.

He was better, but did give away a stupid penalty.
Pontus was clear MOTM for mine, Phillips would’ve been 2nd. Harrison’s best game for the club I would’ve thought.

Not for Championship clubs mate.
I don’t know much about Leeds’ finances but I’m pretty sure 200k is not going to damage them. It’s a slap on the wrist but enough to make them persist in doing it again. Would damage one or two in the championship, obviously Bolton for one but I can’t think of too many others

There are plenty of C'ship clubs who operate on pretty tight budgets.

You tell me why it’s not unfair. Have Leeds lodged an appeal? If not I assume they believe it’s fair too? An unfair punishment would have been a points deduction. You can’t complain
Hahaha deflection at its finest. You said it was fair, I’m asking how you’ve come to the conclusion that a 200k fine is fair?

West Brom beat QPR 3-2 overnight to close the gap to Leeds & the Blades to 1 point. (We have a game in hand though). It’s getting mighty tight up top.
Another injury with top scorer Kemar Roofe out for possibly the rest of the season.

All on Bamford now. At least he's been in reasonable form

What’s there to explain? It’s self explanatory, I think a £200k fine fits the punishment for what Leeds did. I expect they looked at the finances of what you could afford and thought that amount was sufficient. What’s the point in handing out a fine that you is not even going to impact you in the slightest? Got to hit clubs where it hurts when they do wrong
