Thought provoking, insightful and very plausible post that.'Watching Take Us Home: Leeds United Season 1, Episode 4', and reminds me how Bielsa's behaviour makes me think of Pep's comment that he has to earn his contract here.
This kind of thinking aligns with Bielsa's approach, taking complete responsiblity, and wonder if Pep has learned this from him or is also why he loves him so much.
"Spy gate," Bielsa revealed as ridiculous following his "PowerPoint lecture," yet Leeds was still fined, most likely out of some kind of nonsense, yet when the club was fined 200k he ensured that he paid it himself!
The same man who let Villa get a free goal because he thought Leeds had scored unfairly! This is a man of high integrity.
When Pep says to us he has to earn his contract, my cynical side says this is a way for him to get out of jail free, but watching the series reminds me that it may be he genuinely thinks he possesses highly similar personality traits as Bielsa, where self-criticism and being honourable in the context of demanding perfection of himself and others is what this is really about.
