Kane in this form is the best striker of the league hands down


TheConundrum98

playing Leeds should not be relevant for that though


Accomplished-Ad-6007

I love how Son goes Messi every now and then, sad he gets the finish right only very few times


Akshath321

even if they sack bielsa, who's gonna be suicidal enough to take up this job plus there's not gonna be anyone who'll really extract something thats that much better than they are now


GentlemanlyBadger021

Nuno Espirito Santo


AnnieIWillKnow

New DDT up!


CptTonyStark

Is bielsa the most protected manager in the world?


aviral_632

You spelled sean dyche wrong


efcdoyley

All Liverpool fans are Everton fans today, which means today I’m supporting City.


JackAndrewThorne

I mean... You, like us, aren't exactly in a position where you can throw away games.


efcdoyley

Nah we’re both as safe as houses. Norwich, Watford, Leeds and Brentford are all way worse than us two


MiguelAlmiron

Don't think I agree with that mate.


AnnieIWillKnow

They're getting thrashed anyway, can't throw away what you never had


ZaDoruphin

1. Play the most physically demanding football in the league 2. Have inevitable injury issues 3. Have a small squad 4. ???


DanJamesMyGOAT

If Bielsa’s demanding football caused Bamford to get injured celebrating a goal then his football is even more demanding than I imagined


AnnieIWillKnow

Ah yes, Bamford, Leeds' only injured player


DanJamesMyGOAT

1 of the 3 atm


CptTonyStark

Get relegated.


AnnieIWillKnow

Took my 9 year old nephew out this morning whilst visiting home - he says Leeds are going down, and it's hard to disagree.


ZaDoruphin

Why does this read like one of those comments you see on your social feed on FM


AnnieIWillKnow

I have never played the game so cannot say


SKETE_HATER

Firpo is how Araujo would look playing in an actual intense league like the prem


CptTonyStark

Wonder if bielsa will change his tactics now


ThereWillBeGoals

Is he paid more or less than Tuchel. I forget.


CptTonyStark

More, but no need to spam it every time I talk about him. I might have overreacted tho, you can't blame a yanited fan getting passionate talking about Leeds.


Anardus

Leeds are such a frustrating team. They actually played really well but because of their high line they’re somehow 3-0. Also, I gather Kane has been more clinical than Ronaldo in the past 5-6 matches. Looks back to his best


[deleted]

Leeds usually do well vs us because we have no midfield. Won 3-1 last time at home. Dominated us and lost 2-1 away. Don't have good midfielders. Our starting 2 both injured atm.


CptTonyStark

Goodbye dirty Leeds, you won't be missed.


Cardealer1000

One of the least dominant 3-0's I've seen, Leeds are rubbish though.


[deleted]

Yeah. Midfield of Winks and Hojbjerg is garbage.


CptTonyStark

Squatters rights being violated.


AnnieIWillKnow

What's more embarrassing, Leeds, or people not realising they're taking the piss with their songs and getting rattled by it


msf97

I’d go for Leeds imo. 19 goals conceded in 5 games is a goal every 20 minutes


ZaDoruphin

Luke Ayling looks like Ola Englund.


[deleted]

Watching midfield of Hojbjerg and Winks fail to keep possession and not lose the ball to a press is painful.


CptTonyStark

Never a pen


anip94

that kulu lad couldnt get a looked at the tough, ferocious seria a, yet hes firing on all cylinder in the prem. so PL = Farmers league confirmed?


MauricioCappuccino

>tough, ferocious seria a


anip94

league is tough and ferocious when world class striker like lukaku scoring for fun in it


ComprehensiveClick35

the system suits him he almost had a 20 g/a season playing for a relegated side


CptTonyStark

Conte and allegri tax.


[deleted]

He was young player of the season at Parma. Struggled at Juve under Allegri and Pirlo. Has had 3 starts at Spurs. Not really a good narrative here.


Any-Quarter-9474

Leeds may concede 100 goals in a season, crazy.


efcdoyley

89 is the record so they could break that tbh


Apartment_Entire

In the PL ? Nah, they need to concede around 4 goals per game to get there.


Cien-Major

They are pretty much doing that now.


R_sensei

I remember last year a lot of people praised leeds, calling them brave while they lost by a big score again and again. wenger never got this kind of treatment.


Jabari313

Do you have Dementia


Ball_Knowledge

i see so many comments complaining about people praising leeds but i don’t see very many comments praising leeds


R_sensei

well browse last year's reddit, at least I'm sure some media praised bielsa and leeds.


Ball_Knowledge

they deserved praise last year they finished 9th


AnnieIWillKnow

That's because it was last year


Ball_Knowledge

they finished 9th last year so what’s the problem


Jabari313

I'd defend Bielsa but then I'd have to defend Leeds


Accomplished-Ad-6007

Thats a clear penalty, definitely used his hands to block the shot


MrIrishman699

Hit his body then his arm. That's not a penalty under the rules


Professional_Ladder

Let's not get too carried away, it's Tottenham, they're more than capable of messing this up.


Accomplished-Ad-6007

Leeds will absolutely thrive in Bundesliga, might even grab a top 6 finish if they played there for 4-5 seasons


CubedMadness

They’d get absolutely run over. Bundesliga relegation sides play the same football better than they do and they’re getting demolished.


Accomplished-Ad-6007

Abhh yes the fan of second placed Bindesliga team who got demolished by a Scottish team is the ideal person to trust regarding the quality of Bundesliga


suedney

I genuinely think Magdeburg from the 3. Liga would put 4 past them


Agricultural_Expert

Barclays enjoyers are so wild


Accomplished-Ad-6007

I never said La Liga or Serie A, any league whose teams can defend properly with structure will demolish Leeds, unfortunately Bundesliga isn't one of those leagues


pagalpun

>Seems something happening in the PL How can I make this about [non-PL league]


CptTonyStark

I reckon they'd make top 4, the runners up just got battered by a Scottish team.


Fati25

They are absolute shit. They wouldn’t survive in Bundesliga either.


Darkmninya

Mate u overestimate the Bundesliga. Ranger scored 6 goals against the second place


stickia1

You should see Spurs’ recent results in Europe


CubedMadness

And City lost to a team managed by Beierlorzer.


SKETE_HATER

Lyon scored 3 against english Champions 💀💀💀


Competitive-Panda-89

I hope this Leeds collapse makes people realise how much better of a contribution Stoke were to the premier league. We may not have had the best attack but we were a pain to play against for any team and we put 6 past Liverpool in Stevie G's final game 😘


yuripavlov1958xxx

Correct... Players did suffer excruciating pain after playing anti football Stoke. No, the Prem will never miss the type of football you played and the anti manager Pulis. Shawcross was a dirty dirty...


Competitive-Panda-89

😘😘


ComprehensiveClick35

we want you back it's the yanks who always complain about 'anti football'


CptTonyStark

Always rated stoke, need you back in the prem so we can properly evaluate whether a player is a fraud or not.


Meeeeehhhh

We always knew that bb x


msf97

I'm proud of Leeds. They are playing the game as it should be played. Positive and offensive in their approach always. It doesn't matter if they get battered or even relegated. Good football.


Nuri__Sahin

I am all for good, progressive attacking football. And I respect Bielsa for his time at Chile, Bilbao, and in part Leeds. This has been straight up embarrassing. From the very start of the season where they learned absolutely nothing from being thonked last season at Old Trafford. Injuries have been awful, but to persist in this manner is suicidal football to the most extreme end.


msf97

I’m joking obviously. It’s beyond embarrassing for Bielsa now.


AnnieIWillKnow

Easy opinion to have when you're the beneficiary of a 6-0 trashing


Competitive-Panda-89

Their fans will be very proud of their attacking football when they're getting on the train to go to Bristol City away. Good football isn't getting pasted every other week.


LemureTheMonkey

I hope this is sarcasm.


tyetforsyth

Every club should wave a Thank You Bielsa flag when he relegates Leeds


[deleted]

[удалено]


Mr_Rafi

Kind of embarrassing that some of you guys are falling for the Leeds chanting bait. You think they don't know how shit they've been? They're taking the piss. "hurr durr 3-0 down". No shit, man.


Meeeeehhhh

Lmao Leeds. However, I’m unfortunately in Leeds right now so #pray4meeeeehhhh


AnnieIWillKnow

Get yourself back down the M1 lad


Talentedpiper

Kalvin Philips value going up every game he doesn't play


fuckthisshitttlmao

Spurs fans are chanting fs


CptTonyStark

Where will bielsa go next


FIJIBOYFIJI

Retirement


yuripavlov1958xxx

Last time a team conceded 3 goals or more in 5 successive games in the top division was 1959 apparently. Lol. Leeds are really shit. How can their fans put up with this? Bielsa has to be the biggest fraud in football management.


CptTonyStark

Paying him more than Tuchel for this shite. Dirty Leeds lol


ThereWillBeGoals

You’re like that kid from Jerry Maguire who keeps telling everyone the weight of a human brain.


DanJamesMyGOAT

Why do you keep spamming this on the DD when I literally told you why


three_shoes

Bielsa goes as far as to send spy mission to Derby training ground in the Championship but wont go as far as defensive tactic vs a team proven that cant do shit vs defensive tactic...


anakmager

record for new Genoa manager so far: 5 games, 5 draws, scored 2, conceded 2 the new prince of shithousing may be here


stinkyholetime

Tottenham will keep kulu or does he go back to Juve?


ZaDoruphin

If he starts 15 games it’s going to be a permanent deal.


ComprehensiveClick35

it's a 2 year loan if we make top 4 in either season or he plays a certain amount of games in either season we have to buy him


[deleted]

If he performs as he does now, will ofc buy him. 3 starts, 2 goals and 1 assist so far. It's an 18 month loan anyway.


moe_moe_kyunn

LAMPARD >> Biesla.


VZ-Faith

Leeds are so shit every time I watch them play. Why is there always so much hype around them?


AnnieIWillKnow

They are a different team this year to last


MauricioCappuccino

Because Bielsa squats and has a very strong philosophy. So strong in fact he'd rather see his side get relegated conceding 3 goals a game than adapt to teams


msf97

Last season they were good and fun


Apartment_Entire

They basically play suicide ball. If it comes off, they win.


MrIrishman699

I make 19 goals conceded in February alone for Leeds in 4 and a bit games. Genuinely disgusting defending


Mumutr

Liverpool beating these lot 6-0 doesn't look all that impressive anymore


msf97

Everton beat them 3-0. I’m not sure it was ever said to be impressive


[deleted]

Shame that Leeds are going down. That's like 9 goals a season wiped off for us.


ZaDoruphin

Lmao how are these Leeds fans singing that we get battered everywhere they go when they’ve conceded 3 to us in 30 minutes lmao


Mr_Rafi

It's banter. They're taking the piss out of themselves on purpose. It's not uncommon for fans of weaker teams to just completely let go after a battering and start a funny chant.


FIJIBOYFIJI

Is it actually the Leeds fans singing it? I thought it was the spurs fans taking the piss


Cien-Major

They are playing into Spurs hands perfectly, Bielsa is genuinely embarrassing.


fuckthisshitttlmao

What are the Leeds fan chanting while their team is this being battered


AnnieIWillKnow

Because they can laugh at themselves. Self-deprecating humour is a core part of British football fan culture.


[deleted]

"Tottenham get battered everywhere they go" sing the Leeds fans. 3-0 down by 30 min. Having lost 6-0 in their last match.


matematematematemate

I'm pretty sure that's the away fans singing it ironically


[deleted]

Oh really? How can u tell?


matematematematemate

It's a song you usually sing about away teams, "everywhere they go" so they're maybe playing on that Sounds very much like a London accent saying "Tottenham" too edit: singing something else now and you can tell it's the same, Spurs fans in the match thread say it's them too, maybe they've done it before


sul01

They don't sound Northern and just an educated guess


BarbaricGamer

I can already see it at the end of the season, Kane will end with 15 or so goals and some chucklefuck will comment ''But Reddit told me he was having a bad season''.


[deleted]

He started badly. But since Conte, he's been very good.


Numerous_Fan7673

The bottom half quality in the premier league is atrocious


MiguelAlmiron

Hey were playing good now!


shxxxdy

Reminds of me of La Liga from 2012-2015. The big teams are the best in the world but everyone else is embarrassingly bad


rScoobySkreep

Waking up to PL slander 😋


matematematematemate

I hereby propose that every Leeds game until the end of the season is televised. Would be a big boost for the nation's morale right now.


mintz41

Leeds fans are so shameless man. Singing "Tottenham get battered" whilst down 3-0 inside 30 mins 🤣


ComprehensiveClick35

i respect it i'm not even mad


[deleted]

Having lost 6-0 their last match.


Mr_Rafi

Which team had the most recent double digit scoreline victory amongst Europe's top leagues?


LargemouthBrass

Guessing Bayern Edit: just looked it up, it was >!Borussia Mönchengladbach beating Eintracht Braunschweig 10-0 in 1984!<


fuckthisshitttlmao

Maybe raphina does come here then


DanJamesMyGOAT

Oh well, I enjoyed the prem


aviral_632

Thrashed by liverpool is one thing , getting thrashed by spursy is another. Get him the fucking sack now


anip94

whos your team to replace russia when fifa kick them out?


CanLlorenteCarForMe

Hungary, the third best unqualified Nations league group winner.


msf97

3-0 at home? Id be getting the feelers in for Raphinha about now


[deleted]

You switching to Bayern next season?


msf97

Raphinha RCM. Quadruple incoming


[deleted]

Lmfao, good luck with that.


ManLikeNiz

That was the most perfectly timed run by a striker I've ever seen.


Ball_Knowledge

Kane is just insane best in the league when he’s playing like this


FIJIBOYFIJI

Strip Bielsa of his coaching license, the man has clearly gone senile


Murakami241

But he inspired so many managers


Talentedpiper

Leeds are absolutely atrocious man


KimmyBoiUn

Just sack him at half time.


CudaBarry

Sack Bielsa


[deleted]

Yeah. Kane is good.


a_magic_wizard

🤢🤢🤢


[deleted]

Spurs lacking Bentancur and Skipp hurting them quite a bit. No midfield control without them.


mintz41

You don't need midfield control against Leeds fella


[deleted]

Yeah. But you do want it against everyone else. Leeds capitulated already.


mintz41

No combination of Spurs midfielders will result in control against any decent team


[deleted]

Bentancur Skipp would do alright together. Yeah, maybe not vs top 7/8 midfields in the league, but still a significant number of teams.


CornflakeNumber9

Bielsa's tactics are to play into the hands of his opposition


CptTonyStark

Can't wait for ppl to wank bielsa off by saying he's so brave to stick with his playing style.


thesmallprint13

One wingback to another must make Conte hard at this point


Any-Quarter-9474

The less I say about Leeds the better.


Agricultural_Expert

I still wonder how Specy feels seeing Emerson play for Spurs


ElKaddouriCSC

Russian Premier League is still being played. Interested to see if theres any banners, displays etc regarding the conflict. Pro or anti Russia


MrIrishman699

Tbf life is basically normal in Russia so it would be surprising if they stopped playing, many of them don't have a clue of what's really happening either thanks to media censorship


Scalenuts

Of course everyone knows what's going on, lol


ComprehensiveClick35

unless they wanna get nicked i doubt it


Competitive-Panda-89

They'd be very brave, I'd imagine they'd all get novichok'd.


[deleted]

Spurs are 100% conceding this game btw. Need to rack up goals as a buffer.


CptTonyStark

Bye bye bellend road, have fun in the championship.


efcdoyley

Firpo is up there as worst player in the league


DanJamesMyGOAT

Moshiri will drop 30 million for him and you’ll like it


efcdoyley

Thank god for Russian sanctions or you’d be correct


thesmallprint13

Kulusevski, Elanga and Isak front three is gonna cause some mad damage. Sebastian Larsson off the bench too just for a good free kick every now and again


TomasRoncero

bielsa is such a fraud


a_magic_wizard

Spurs can capitulate at any minute. Still in this. Need a controversial ref call or something.


AdObjective4017

More likely that Leeds will concede 4 more


Agricultural_Expert

Have some shame


Nebuchadnezzar_V

Really having to resist the urge to laugh at Leeds until after our game cos no doubt we will be equally shit


[deleted]

Weird, I had so many people telling me Kulusevski is shit because they've only watched him play in Juventus, a team that didn't fit his play style and didn't utilize him properly when he's been good in every other team he's played in 🤔


Nuri__Sahin

True. But there were also quite a few people arguing several months plus ago he'd be a smart pick up for Dortmund, Arsenal or Roma(?). General opinion on him shifted thanks in large part to Juve fans.. as Juve as a whole played like shite. It was always nonsensical.


[deleted]

It's been 3 starts tbf.


Daniel-Soto

80% of this sub doesn’t watch football matches


Agricultural_Expert

It’s Leeds
