    OK.

    Seven years on. Time to bump.

    Half way through the season and sitting top. Playing well even with the injuries. In Bielsa we trust.

    At least I posted some when my team was relegated :D

    Where'd our resident local Sunderland fan go? lol

    It had been too long since I watched EFL. I saw the Leeds/Villa matchup yesterday. Such an incredible display. Too bad there had to be a loser, but I bet Milgod enjoyed the result. Love to see that style of Football. Thankfully Everton mimicked the same philosophy vs. Spurs...

    As for the table I had not realized Norwich shot up the table like that. I tried to follow early on because they are close to me, but I lost connection. Looks like Ispwich Town are staggering.

    Haha...I see what you did there. There's not much League One talk on here, but they are flirting with an EFL comeback.

    I just finished "Sunderland Til I Die" on Netflix, which followed their disastrous 2018 campaign. Was very interesting.

    Leeds fall today and Norwich City get a draw. I went to portman road and watched Ipswich Town lose to Milwall 3-2. I heard the Town's attacking in the first half was some of their best attacking football in a while. sadly they only got one goal (should have had 3 or 4)...their defending was horrid in the 2nd. Looks like they are going down.

    Still going well. Just got to hold on now.

    Whatever happens, it's been the most enjoyable season since 2010. Bielsa is an absolute god. He's transformed a squad that barely scraped 13th last season into promotion candidates (even with the insanely high number of injuries we've had).

    Already renewed the ST for next season. Let's hope it's back where we belong.

    Having Bielsa is a hell of a journey. I watched him transform Chile and completely change the way we used to play. It was a joy and you should enjoy it for as long as it lasts.

    It's potato quality, but this is fantastic to watch now:

    I've just about recovered from celebrating. Head a little worse for wear, but we've done it!

    16 years and it's finally over!

    First: Congrats to Leeds! It's been way, way too long to not have them in the Premier League.

    A little surprised to see you back, though. You've been MIA from the forum for some time. Then again, so has English. I guess it's hard to be positive and be around all the PL news when your team isn't in it. Well, in any case, welcome back.

    I've had a lot of time away from all my forums. Life just got in the way (very annoying when it does that).

    Excited to be back, but we have got to keep hold of Bielsa first and foremost.
