Not United related, but just want to comment on how Leeds have started the season.

The way Bielsa has them working hard is great to see. They get players forward to overload the opposition defence. City couldn't cope with them last night. They were attacking with 5 or 6 players at a time, and their full backs were sprinting forward to provide overlaps and width.

They defend in numbers as well. It's like they are playing with several box to box midfielders, all working hard to get up and down the pitch to overcrowd the opposition.

It will be hard to keep up that style of play over the course of a full Premier League season, but if they do, they will be fine and I can see them taking points off other teams in the top 6.

Bielsa is clearly a top coach and his players leave it all out on the pitch for him 👏.

{Ed047's Note - they only have the league and FA Cup to think of too.

I think if he stays fit and they bring in Telles who can cross a ball he could be a good addition.
Worrying we are going down this route but does not change the possibility it works.

What is the general opinion on Bielsa, why doesn't he get offers from "top" clubs? Is it his personality perhaps?

Leeds have looked good, but it’s Everton who have impressed me the most. I’m tempted to put a few quid on them winning the title, but I have a feeling they might start to fade come January-February time.
