“It's been emotional”, in the words of the one and only Vinnie Jones. We all know how much Bielsa did for our great club and how much he'll remain a part of our folklore.
But the future begins today. Jesse Marsch, 48 year old American former manager of RB Leipzig, RB Salzburg and MLS clubs joins as our new manager.
I believe from the pundits he's a believer in a high energy, high press, attacking game which will wean us away from Bielsaball without reinventing us. We must hope a new voice galvanises the players and that a little bit more defensive balance will see us out of our current predicament.
This feels like the start of the 49ers regime and the twilight of Radz tenure, it would mean more money for the squad if they do exercise their option to buy, but equally we are now a conventional club trying to prosper in the PL, just like everyone else.
Sadness and optimism live together in me this week. Leicester City away is live on BT sport - what will the "new Leeds" look like? We'll soon see.
