Mike L. Goodman for Grantland:
Ultimately, Marseille were brilliant for two-thirds of Sunday’s game before finally fading away. It’s reminiscent of their revolutionary Argentine manager’s career: Come out on fire, blow people away with your energy, and then flame out in a blaze of glory before reaching the finish line. It’s not that Bielsa’s methods don’t work; it’s just that, as Marseille found out yesterday, they don’t work for long enough.
Fascinating match review slash analysis on Bielsa. Goodman is one of the best — if not the best — football writer around.
