Yeah, so, we all know this already, but Marcelo Bielsa takes this whole “match preparation” thing pretty seriously.
Someone who was at Wigan today tells me that just the six members of Bielsa’s backroom staff were sent to the draw with Norwich earlier. I know Dean Saunders doesn’t rate it but the analysis he’s doing is off the scale.— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) April 14, 2019
Six, yes six, members of the Leeds backroom staff went and saw Wigan Athletic play against Norwich City Sunday. I mean, six. Six. And you already know that they’ve watched all of Wigan’s games this year already.
Yes, he’s El Loco, but he’s our El Loco, and we wouldn’t have anyone else. Leeds Carajo!
