    True , got some great young talent, BUT dont forget they were cheating for two thirds of the season with the spying, definitely gave them an advantage and this fact is shown by they're results in the last third .. before they got caught.. 5 points clear at the top of the table to ending up 11 points adrift of top spot , without cheating they would have ended the season around 15th.

    Yeah that's fair, Bielsa himself was definitely aiming for promotion.
    Bielsa's teams have a history of finishing season's very poorly and that added to the fact that Leeds have consistently not scored as much as they should've done makes me think that the bad run of form wasn't because of spygate.

    It sounds far worse than it is in terms of the Bin Laden stuff... but the court case is very eye opening so far :(

    How do you think it will end? Hope it doesn't effect any recruitment over the summer, you've a good basis but definately need a couple of signings. Hopefully it's all resolved soon so you can use the money to invest.

    It kind of makes your promotion all the more special with so much going on in the background.

    In all honesty I have no idea. It's still in the opening stages so you can't really gain anything from it. It wouldn't surprise me if the judge ruled that they're both fools and they both keep 50/50!

    The budget has already been agreed for next season so realistically it shouldn't affect any planning from that point of view. It does show how well Wilder has done, especially considering he very nearly walked at the end of last season because of all this!

    Yeah, backroom issues usually impact onfield performance, Wilder's ability to ignore all the goings on behind the scene and deliver is impressive.

    Wilder us one of (if not THE) best managers in the league and fair play to him managing Sheff Utd to promotion considering the shite he's had to deal with.

    I doubt somehow but would like to hope the blades are little more cautious in their critisism of our chairman now.

    We'll have to be careful with them now we know their hooligan firm is actually ISIS......:eeek:hmmm

    It's not exactly great to be linked with that surname but it's not as if it's come from him :laugh:

    Before you show your ignorance even more I suggest you do a bit of research on the Bin Laden family.
