Remarkable stat

Marcelo Bielsa has won 49 of his 91 competitive matches in charge of Leeds. Bielsa has the highest win ratio of any permanent Leeds manager in the club's history (53.8%)

That's why I made the point in the Bamford thread about him having scored 2 crucial goals in our 4 matches since restart. get our noses in front and it means we can play a way that we are better suited for, attacking with pace against opposition that don't park the bus. People made a huge deal about Tyler Roberts getting 2 goals when he replaced Bamford against Hull but those goals were both in the last 10 minutes of the game and we were 2-0 up at that point and there were gaps all over the place. Yesterday we really should have put more past Blackburn after going 3-1 up - that for me would have been a great time to have brought someone like Roberts on as Bamford must be knackered by that point as he always puts a shift in - fresh legs of a pacy striker in the last 20 minutes when we are in cruise control would be ideal.

Really not understanding you point Weasel? You're saying that as our AMF hasn't scored since the restart he's not as good a striker as Paddy? Is that the gist?

Saying Bamford probably fits Bielsa's system better and I am not anywhere near yet convinced that Roberts is a better option as the striker. He has potential, shows flashes but like Bamford has a catalogue of poor misses this season and last.

Roberts only played as a striker in a handful of games at the beginning of last season when we were without Roofe and Bamford.
After that Bielsa tried to make him into an AMF which I feel hasn't helped his development.

Plus he is pacier, stronger, and is a better header of the ball.

Looking a decent polish up and sell for 15-20M next season.

Bamford's heading of the ball is a mystery to me given that he is 6 ft 1 " tall.

LANDMARK : Marcelo Bielsa becomes the first Leeds United manager to secure consecutive top-three finishes across any divisions since Don Revie (3rd in 1972/73 and 1st in 1973/74).

The obvious comment to add is, let's hope Marcelo emulates those achievements to the letter!
