About this deal

In all of these comments Bielsa comes out very positively and Hay creates the impression that all who cross paths with Bielsa admire and are in awe of him.

An excellent book that details the rise of Leeds United under Marcelo Bielsa, as well as giving an in-depth look at the owner Radrizzini and his right-hand man, Victor Orta (Director of Football). When Marcelo Bielsa was appointed head coach of Leeds United in the summer of 2018, the club had just finished 13th in the Championship – their 15th consecutive season outside the top flight – and were defined as much by their excesses and disasters off the pitch as their lack of success on it. This is a must-read for any Leeds fan, but equally, there's enough here to keep any football fan entertained.If we didn't already have an idea about how badly the club had been prior to the arrival of Radrizzani as owner the tales are so farcical that you wouldn't believe them. THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER The behind-the-scenes story of the Marcelo Bielsa revolution at Leeds United and their first season back in the Premier League after sixteen years of hurt. FEATURING FRESH PERSONAL INSIGHT FROM MARCELO BIELSAOn 27th February 2022, after 170 matches in charge, promotion to the Premier League and some of the most exhilarating football the English game has ever seen, Leeds United parted company with their most beloved and successful manager in a generation: Marcelo Bielsa. Bielsa performed miracles, turning football into high art and making an extraordinary cultural impact on the city of Leeds. The recap of the Premier League season was interesting as we are told of some of the ways in which a football team runs behind the scenes.

This book has been completely revised, expanded and updated for a modern audience tackling issues and problems that did not exist when J. Radrizzani, Orta and Kinnear (the men who run Leeds United) come out of this book very well and are clearly far superior to the previous custodians of the club.About the Author: Phil hay grew up in Penicuik in Scotland and left to study journalism at the University of Sheffield in 1998.

The one thing I will say is there wasn't much in here that I wasn't already aware of, but that is a minor point and I'd rather it that way around than things included which are not verified, which I know Phil Hay would never do anyway.

Ralph Ineson, the most well-known of modern British Leeds’ fans, does an excellent job of narrating. You experience the ups and downs of the championship, whilst learning about the great Marcelo bielsa. FEATURING FRESH PERSONAL INSIGHT FROM MARCELO BIELSAOn 27th February 2022, after 170 matches in charge, promotion to the Premier League and some of the most exhilarating football the English game has ever seen, Leeds United parted company with their most beloved and successful manager in a Marcelo Bielsa. I bought this just before he left the club, but it didn’t matter, I was just as keen to hear about this unusual and private man who was happy to give up lots of his own time to fans that he met on the street or in the supermarket or wherever. Where this book comes into its own though is through the chapters exploring the recent history of the club.

Biography: Phil Hay grew up in Penicuik in Scotland and left to study journalism at the University of Sheffield in 1998. Some startling revelations such as Ashley Barnes not being signed because Luke Varney who was already at Leeds was rated on Football Manager or Massimo Cellino dismissing the catering staff and leaving nobody to replace the milk in the fridge at the training ground. As a devout Huddersfield Town fan, I probably shouldn't be reading books about the manager of our bitter rivals. Phil Hay grew up in Penicuik in Scotland and left to study journalism at the University of Sheffield in 1998.

If Bielsa is half the manager this book portrays him to be it won't be long before Leeds regret their decision and long to have him back.Leeds fans know the mediocrity of the ownership of Ken Bates which dropped them down to League One, then years of mid-table mediocrity under GFH then Massimo Cellino. Wonderfully woven together, touches all the interesting parts of how Bielsa is, how he coaches, how he affects players and teams, how he prepares, how things came together in that magic promotion season, that mad first year back, and what went wrong.
