On 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. His parting gift was to embrace the crowds of adoring fans who turned up to say thank you as he left the club's training ground for the final time.

In And it was Beautiful, The Athletic's Phil Hay chronicles Leeds United's glorious first season back in the top flight - which saw them finish ninth - after a chaotic sixteen-year absence. Phil pulls back the curtain on the hallmarks that now define the Marcelo Bielsa era, from his gruelling training schedule - including his infamous 'murderball' sessions - to innovative tactical methods that elevated Championship regulars into Premier League stars. Bielsa performed miracles, turning football into high art and making an extraordinary cultural impact on the city of Leeds. The result is a unique and fitting tribute to a Leeds United icon.

    When we go down, I'd love to see him back to do it all over again.

    Don't think he'd come back after how the board treated him, unfortunately (edited)

    Never thought i'd say this but we actually deserve to go down. The guys in charge of the club are an absolute joke!

    I'm a Chelsea fan. Your owners and our owners need to be banned from football. Your fans deserve PL though and our fans are so bad and we've been given so much we deserve instant relegation to League 2.

    Big mistake to get rid of him, klopp, Pep took years to build their sides. (edited)

    Given the situation there's a fair argument for sacking him, but I would rather have him and the failing to properly replace him has proven that to be right
