Which squad does Leeds United play when he returns to the Premier League? (Part 2)

On the attacking front, coach Bielsa is targeting striker Che Adams, who recently moved to Southampton from Birmingham for a fee of £ 15 million in January 2019. However, the 24-year-old striker was infrequently used and was only allowed on the bench, having a total of 996 minutes in the Premier League since the start of the season.

Adams was asked to borrow money from Leeds United twice (summer 2019 and winter 2020) but was rejected. Most likely, Coach Bielsa will continue to return to the striker who scored 22 goals in the English first division season 2018/19.

Along with the recruitment of experienced veterans, the football club from Yorkshire is also promoting negotiations to continue borrowing young players who have just experienced a successful season. It is Jack Harrison of Man City, Ben White of Brighton.

Will Leeds United challenge the Big Six?

Peter Reid, a former coach who led Leeds United in 2003, confirmed that the Elland Road team returned to the Premier League after 16 years and will become a counterbalance to the Big Six teams.

Will Leeds United challenge the Big Six?

The failure of West Brom and Brentford, the two direct competitors in the early 45th round, helped Leeds United officially win the English Premier League title with the Premier League promotion ticket for the first time in 16 years.

Witness the return of one of the big names of football in the fog, coach Peter Reid, who briefly led the Elland Road team, thinks they have returned to where they belonged and returned to counterbalance the Big Six.

Besides, the former captain of Leeds United also appreciated the talent of coach Marcelo Bielsa, the chief architect to help the Elland Road team to be promoted after only two seasons.

We all know how the team Bielsa leads the play. It’s football with high energy. I like this. I think Leeds United is back where they belong, “said coach Peter Reid.

In March 2003, Peter Reid turned down an offer to lead the Irish Republic to assume the role of interim coach at Leeds United after the team fired Terry Venables. It was the strategy that was born in 1956 that helped Leeds United revive and successfully relegate in the Premier League and be awarded the official contract.

However, the fact that the team was still in a financial crisis caused Reid to sell Harry Kewell and bring cheaper contracts instead. The quality of the team dropped, causing Leeds United to play poorly and after a 1-6 defeat to the newly promoted team Portsmouth, he received a casket from the team in November 2003.

Which squad does Leeds United use in the Premier League? (Part 1)

Returning to the Premier League after 16 years of absence, coach Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United is making many people curious about the squad he will bring in the 2020/21 season.

Which squad will Leeds United play when he returns to the Premier League?

The failure of West Brom and Brentford, the two direct competitors in the early 45th round, helped Leeds United officially win the English Premier League title with the Premier League promotion ticket for the first time in 16 years. Winning promotion tickets means the team’s budget will have a huge budget.

Dr. Rob Wolson, a football finance expert from Sheffield Hallam University, said the promotion will help Leeds reap about 140 million euros of advertising money. And even in the case of relegation after just one season, Leeds still received £ 70 million in royalties and achievements in the Premier League.

Auditing firm Deloitte also calculated that the amount of money Leeds received could increase to £ 290 million over five years if relegated successfully in the first season. However, if you want to stay relegated successfully, the football team from the West Yorkshire need to be strong on Techmart to upgrade the squad.

With the current staff, it will not be easy for coach Marcelo Bielsa to help the home team of Elland Road fight in the Foreign Premier League, where the fierce is far more than the first division.

Quite a few names have been mentioned in the transfer plan of coach Bielsa. Veteran goalkeeper Joe Hart, who expires his contract with Burnley at the end of the season, is likely to be Leeds United’s first rookie.

Liverpool’s young defender Yasser Larouci is also a target for Leeds United

In addition to Hart, a former England teammate midfielder James Milner is also being linked to the Elland Road Stadium. Milner has just renewed a two-year contract with Liverpool, but at the age of 34 it will be difficult for him to win his position at Anfield and this player will likely decide to return to the team he started up with since five. 1996 to 2004.

Liverpool’s young defender Yasser Larouci is also a target for Leeds United. The 19-year-old French player is currently on the payroll of the Liverpool U23 team but has not had many opportunities to step into the first team. Therefore, it is likely that he will decide to leave to develop his career.

Leeds lost consecutively in the Premier League

Coach Marcelo Bielsa dropped to 14th place after losing 1-4 to Crystal Palace in Round 8 of the Premier League.

After a good start, Leeds is slowly running out of breath with rivals in the Premier League. Coach Marcelo Bielsa’s teacher and teacher have a second consecutive defeat. In the last 5 rounds, the Premier League rookie got a victory. Failure at Selhurst field caused “The Whites” to drop to 14th place with 10 points.

The football team from West Yorkshire pushed up the squad after the opening whistle, but the quality of the visitors’ attacks was not mutated enough to penetrate the Crystal Palace defense. The defender took the initiative and suddenly got a goal in the 12th minute, after Scott Dann’s header. The ball goes off the edge of the bar, then lies in the net

Leeds lost consecutively in the Premier League

5 minutes later, Patrick Bamford equalized for Leeds, after a delicate touch when facing goalkeeper Guaita. However, this goal was not recognized when the VAR discovered that the upper body of the No. 9 striker was higher than the home team’s defense.

Shortly after being stripped of the goal, the football team from the West Yorkshire conceded for the second time. A young player born in 1998, Eberechi Eze shined with a beautiful free-kick from a distance of more than 20 meters, helping “Blue Eagle” lead 2-0.

Illan Meslier did what he could, but gave it up. Both ends of the home team sent the ball to the edge of the bar, before going into the net.

Leeds persisted and had a goal to shorten the score in the 27th minute

Bamford continued to concede Crystal Palace. His goal this time was recognized. The striker born in 1993 has 7 goals in the Premier League this season, the performance is only inferior to Son Heung-min and Calvert-Lewin (8 goals).

Bamford’s goal is also what Leeds United did in front of the host. 3 minutes before the break, Coach Roy Hodgson’s teachers and teachers had a goal to increase the score to 3-1. Van Aanholt’s horizontal stretch hit Helder Costa’s foot. The ball changed direction to the corner near the Leeds goal. Goalkeeper Meslier stepped up to catch the opponent’s cross, so he could not back up to save the visitors.

2 consecutive rounds passed, Leeds had to admit defeat with the score 1-4. Before that, coach Bielsa’s army lost a lot to Leicester at Elland Road’s home field.

Leeds United lost 1-4 against Leicester in the 7th round of the Premier League

Leeds lost heavily to Leicester despite having home advantage in the match in the 7th round of the Premier League on November 3.

After an impressive 4-0 victory over high-form rivals Aston Villa, Leeds returned home to welcome Leicester City. “The Whites” held the ball up to 67% but allowed the opponent to concede the net 4 times, after a sharp counterattack.

Harvey Barnes opened the score for “Fox” in the second minute, then in turn Youri Tielemans (21 ‘and 90’), Jamie Vardy (76 ‘) brought joy to the visitors.

The efforts of teachers and coaches Marcelo Bielsa only helped them to have an honorable goal at the beginning of the second half scored by Stuart Dallas. This is the first time, Leeds has lost two consecutive home games under coach Bielsa.

Leeds held the ball 65% in the first half and also had many notable attacking forms. After a hat-trick against Aston Villa, Patrick Bamford had a bad day, when he missed two delicious opportunities, even though only goalkeeper Schmeichel was left in front.

Leeds lost 1-4 against Leicester in the 7th round of the Premier League

Pressure on the Leicester defense increased in the second half. Leeds attacked quickly, and there was a goal to shorten the score, after Dallas’s uncomfortable ball suspension. Liam Cooper shot high but did not touch the ball. Goalkeeper Schmeichel was startled and could not save the visitors in time.

After the opponent had a goal, Coach Rodgers did not reinforce the defense, instead, he sent two attackers, James Maddison and Cengiz Under, into the field. The correct decision of this military leader helped Leicester to have 2 more goals in the remainder of the second half.

In the goal to increase the score to 3-1, Leicester needed 4 passes from home to conquer the football team from West Yorkshire. The ball went through Schmeichel, Maddison, Under, and was neatly finished by Vardy into the empty goal.

After 217 appearances, Vardy has 110 Premier League goals, more than many players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, Ryan Giggs, Didier Drogba.

At the last minute, Maddison also earned a penalty. Tielemans ended Leicester’s impressive day with a successful kick to make the score 4-1. “Fox” has 15 points after 7 rounds, thereby rising to 2nd place. This is the best achievement of the home team at King Power since the 2000/01 season.

Leeds United returns to the Premier League

The defeat of the second-place team of West Brom against Huddersfield on the evening of July 17, helped Leeds win the first promotion place in the English First Division this season.

After 16 years of absence, Leeds will play in the Premier League from the 2020-2021 season. Marcelo Bielsa’s teachers and students have 87 points after 44 games, five points higher than West Brom. With West Brom having only one game left, the football from West Yorkshire took the place to first place. Third place is Brentford with 81 points. Brentford will follow Leeds up for promotion if he wins the other two games.

Leeds fans flocked to Elland Road to celebrate the home team’s return to the Premier League

West Brom lost their autonomy to promotion with a 1-2 defeat at Huddersfield, though they were leading most of the season. The host opened the score thanks to Chris Willock in the fourth minute, the earliest match of round 45.

West Brom equalized at the end of the first half with a goal at Dara O’Shea. But at the 86th minute, Emile Smith-Rowe scored the score to set the score 2-1 for the homeowner. Willock and Smith-Rowe both grew up from Arsenal’s training ground.

Leeds United had started slumping a season earlier, in the face of financial turmoil. The home club Elland Road has to sell many pillars such as Rio Ferdinand, Robbie Keane, Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, or Robbie Fowler. Although there are still a few good players like Mark Viduka, Alan Smith, Jermaine Pennant, or James Milner, they are still 19th and relegated with Leicester and Wolverhampton.

Leeds fans congratulate the players at Elland Road

Leeds suddenly reached the semi-finals of the 2000-2001 Champions League, stopping against Valencia. But the West Yorkshire club had to play in the second division (EFL League One) for three seasons, from 2007 to 2010.

How did Radrizzani bring change to Leeds United (Part 2)

Radrizzani even answered La Gazzetta Dello Sports that he was willing to pay Conte £ 20 million if Conte secured Leeds back and relegation in the Premier League. 20 million pounds is the dream money of the top coach at the top club today.

But then Bielsa answered. And when they talked for the first time on the phone, both Orta and Radrizzani were surprised to learn that Bielsa had watched 7 Leeds games.

Until Orta and Radrizzani flew to Buenos Aires to meet Bielsa in person, they were even more terrified when Bielsa watched all 17 Leeds games, and at the same time read on how strong and weak the Leeds players were, including reserve player.

However, the third time they met, also in Buenos Aires, the Leeds executive team was completely overpowered. Bielsa presented a series of charts on the table, just confining the advantages and disadvantages, the play style of all Leeds’ opponents in the First Division of England.

Returning to England, Leeds chief executive Angus Kinnear still couldn’t believe such a detailed person was. Kinnear himself said that there was even a candidate for a coach in Leeds, but could not remember a name in the Leeds squad at that time.

Radrizzani became the man that brought change to Leeds United

However, Kinnear also told Radrizzani that he did not understand if the Bielsa plan would be successful, lest such a “master” be willing to work in the First Class and it was not known how he would demand his salary.

Ultimately the impossible, as Orta said and like Kinnear’s fear, became possible. Bielsa accepted. Salary is less than 1/7 of the amount that Radrizzani is willing to pay Conte. Only 3 million pounds only. However, that is also the record salary for the First Class. Bielsa came to England and got to work.

One of the ideas was that he suggested a bed, a PlayStation for the players at Thorp Arch. He also took a bed there so he could stay.

How did Radrizzani bring change to Leeds United? (Part 1)

Radrizzani arrived, and the first thing he did was buy back the legendary Elland Road, a valuable asset that had been sold to pay off debts when Leeds went bankrupt. It was a decision that created a great impetus when it brought to life the spirit of the West Yorkshire’s football team in the community.

Radrizzani also re-established the club’s women’s team. However, he understood that the most needed was still the Premier League. To conquer there, he needs a coach at the “elite” level.

Radrizzani brought to life the spirit of the West Yorkshire’s football team

Since the failed gamble project with David O’Leary, Leeds has employed 20 coaches for nearly 20 years, of which the number of full-time coaches is 17. In Leeds United, people used to use the “right hand of the president” coaches like Dennis Wise, the legendary Elland Road field like Gary McAllister, as “relegated saints” like Niel Warnock.

Radrizzani, the man bringing change to Leeds

No one is delivering results. Radrizzani understood that the problem was systems. Must complete the new system to calculate the story of finding teachers

And when he was cracking down on building a system, Radrizzani thought of the coach. He understood Paul Heckingbottom wouldn’t be enough to bring the football team coming from Yorkshire back. However, who is the name that you need to choose?

Radrizzani, the man bringing change to Leeds

Just then, sitting in the car with him to the Elland Road yard was the Sports Director Victor Orta. Orta suggested: Marcelo Bielsa but with the comment “may be impossible”.

Orta’s judgment seemed correct. Although Orta had a close relationship with Bielsa, he was unable to contact the Argentine coach. The phone does not answer. Texting did not reply. As for Radrizzani, there were other plans in mind as well.

The first is to pull Roberto Martinez out of Belgium, right after the 2018 World Cup. And second, but more priority, fellow Radrizzani: Antonio Conte, who has just been fired by Chelsea.

Leeds won the second match in a row of the Premier League

Rookie Leeds defeated the host Sheffield 1-0 with a goal in the 88th round of the 3rd round of the Premier League.

The fate of the match at Bramall Lane is decided just two minutes before the end of the official match time. From the middle, Rodrigo opened the ball to the left for Jack Harrison to cross into the penalty area for midfielder Bamford to hit the ground, beating Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

The 1-0 result in favor of the visitors seemed unfair for Sheffield

Sheffield  worked so hard in the second half of the second half but was a worthy reward for Leeds United. Being a guest on the football field was seen as a phenomenon in the Premier League last season, but Leeds held the ball 64.3%, launched 17 shots and nine of them took place in the opponent’s 16m50 area.

After rejecting Luke Ayling’s shot, the 22-year-old goalkeeper flew with his fingertips to push the ball over the bar from the Stuart Dallas leg. Leeds also defeated Ramsdale in the second half, when Dallas took the way and tricked the goalkeeper. But the goal still did not come to the visitors, as Chris Basham stepped back to break the ball on the line.

Ramsdale then shone again, blocking the shot from Ian Poveda – the player Bielsa came on in the 66th minute. But Leeds’ attack effort also paid off with Bamford’s at the end of the second half. This is the striker’s third table three times with the football team coming from West Yorkshire this season. This was after the Liverpool net kicked in on an opening day, and then Fulham in the second round.

Sheffield is not bad at playing

All game, Sheffield had 14 shots on goal, but only two of them were clear opportunities. In the 29th minute, after a harmonious arrangement between Osborn and McGoldrick, John Lundstram ended the ball in the low corner, but could not win the reflex and great reach of Leeds goalkeeper Illan Messier. In the 40th minute, it was George Baldock’s turn to be disappointed with his cannon shot at the top corner denied by Messier.

A 1-0 win gave the West Yorkshire’s football club another three points after a 4-3 win over Fulham – rivals with the same promotion last season – in the second round. This will be the basis for coach Bielsa and students to be more confident when heading to the match against Man City in round 4 on October 3.

Interesting things about the legendary football team from York (Part 2)

In the 2000/01 season, Leeds entered the Champions League semi-final round. Their turnover in 2000 was £ 83 million, minus all expenses and debt payments, they earned £ 10 million. That revenue came from a 33% increase in admission ticket sales, and 40% in brand name sales. Gambling looks good and bright.

In the 2000/01 season, Leeds entered the Champions League semi-final round

However, losing to Valencia in the semifinal ended all hope. The revenue dropped immediately. Meanwhile, the cost is too high. Leeds spent sporadically as if such a waste showed it deserved to be on the same tray as the big guys in Europe.

It was a Leeds player that told that day, just about the plane traveling to the Champions League, Leeds also played brand names. While Liverpool itself, at the 2005 championship, only flew with a Boeing 737 with so narrow space that the trophy had to sit in one seat like a regular passenger.

The difficulties

After that failure is the situation that was charged with debt. Leeds owed a total of £ 83 million, paying one million pounds a month in debt. Salary funds were still suffocating, and they began to cut it down by selling their stars. The more you sell the weaker. The weaker the more broken.

And one day in the early summer of 2004, they were relegated to start the tragedy. They were controlled, penalized, sent to 3rd place. From a rich traditional team, winning England three times, they became number 0.

Leeds United faced many difficulties in the past

President Peter Ridsdale’s mistake in building overly naive business that day is still a great reference today. Simply the story of the social gap due to the Covid-19 translation, causing the pitch to have no audience, has caused many clubs to struggle.

A club cannot rely solely on commercial revenue. At this point, people can see the value of television rights, investment owners hiding under the name of a sports company, or some football investment fund.

Coincidentally, at the very moment of the Covid-19 pandemic that could turn some clubs into Leeds’ situation nearly 20 years ago, Leeds returned to the Premier League, with the sole investor owner, Italian billionaire Andrea Radrizzani. After three years of buying a 100% stake in Leeds, he brought the club back to where it belongs.

The football club from West Yorkshire returned to the Premier League

The presence of Leeds United, the football club from West Yorkshire, will be the spice that is worth the wait for the 2020/21 Premier League season.

In the early match of the 45th Championship round (second place under the British system), West Brom lost 1-2 at Huddersfield Town, indirectly helping Leeds United soon win promotion tickets to the Premier League.

The army under coach Bielsa currently leads the group with 87 points after 44 games. Even though they are promoted, they still have the goal of earning at least 1 more point in the last 2 rounds to win the championship.

Leeds United fans were thrilled

Leeds United fans have been waiting for this moment for the past 16 years. Since dropping out of the Premier League in 2004, Leeds experienced many struggles, sometimes down to League One (third place under the British system).

The Elland Road team also repeatedly approached the promotion ticket, but often fell off the horse at the decisive time. It was not until Coach Bielsa appeared that Leeds changed.

Leeds United used to be a special team of the Premier League

Leeds United is has a liberal, sassy image, ready to challenge the giants. Leeds also owned many famous players such as Eric Cantona, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka, Alan Smith, Robbie Keane, Rio Ferdinand, Robbie Fowler, James Milner…

After relegation, Leeds United continuously fell into debt. Due to financial difficulties, they had to sell all their stars and even had time to drop to second place (League One). But then overcoming many events and ups and downs, the white shirt team got up and realized the dream of returning to the old roof.

The return of the 100-year-old team in West Yorkshire was a big event with foggy football. Even, it also created an echo like the championship after 30 years of waiting for Liverpool.
