    I love how Leeds fans have suddenly become experts in how much preparation and analysis every other manager does.

    Fair enough, I don't recall that. But still, I'm pretty sure that's outside my stipulated decade so I'm ok 😄

    I'm sure Bielsa is great, but this is the first thing to irritate me from all of this nonsense.
    You don't know how much prep every other manager does. Therefore you don't know how much less, or more, work any individual manager puts in than Bielsa.
    Bielsa being "famous" for his attention to detail simply means that he talks about, which he does. I've seen tons of interviews with players of tons of clubs, talking about their manager, who acclaim their boss's "attention to detail".
    Also, every club also has groups of staff who spend their whole days in a room watching games of the opposition, collating detailed reports etc. 
    I'm not saying Bielsa definitely doesn't put in more work than anyone else, cos (amazingly) I don't ducking know - but the idea that that (really basic) presentation is proof that no-one else puts in the same amount of work is objectively absurd.

    Tomori has been dominant. That's his first mistake and its not as big a mistake as it looked, Redmonds run was very well timed.

    Don't be absurd, needs to be dropped so we can sell him for £10m in the summer

    But hey, dragging up a matter we'd moved on from and having a 70 minute targeted meltdown in front of the media... that's fine.

    I've noticed a lot of goalies standing behind the goal line these days to get a jump out.  We are Derby and it would have been disallowed

    He's not a thinker, at least in interview scenarios. The only downside of his captaincy imo 😄, not that that element matters even a little in comparison to the qualities of leadership.

    It'll be very Derby to win this in ET, have a sluggish series of league games, then lose at Accrington.

    There was one Southampton foot at the back which played about 6 of our players onside.
    They even highlighted this by making the line flash as if to say "Look, we got one right!"
