    I know Pablo scored some important goals, but I never watched a game where Berardi didnt put himself on the line 100%. Class player, really hope he gets a coaching role at the club.

    Missed seeing him play this season, Hernandez, too. I love Barardi. He’s a nut, as hard as they come & would happily BLEED fe his shirt, literally usually. That’s rare nowadays. He would’ve fit right in with Revie’s squad of the 70s glory years. He & Hernandez will be missed. True servants of Leeds Utd, they will always be remembered fe their integral part of the Championship team & promotion. Hernandez reminded us all what we will miss yesterday. Best player on the pitch performance wise, & got a good bye goal. Class. I’ll always look back at the games they played, Barardis moments of madness, crunching flying two footed tackles, bloodied face, his only ever pro goal & Hernandez fe his sublime skill & superb goals, with a HUGE grin on my face. They truly typified Leeds United. I wish them both all the best in their future endeavours. Once a Leeds player, always a Leeds player. Can tek the player outta the club, but never the club outta the player. Thank you both so much fe the amazing memories! MOT ALAW.

      He wanted to go home, at least at the end of his contract last season before his injury, so seems unlikely he'll go to a club in England.

    The only Cellino signing who bothered to learn, adapt and acclimatize to English football - and became a cult hero in the process

    • Oscar


      17 天 前

      ​@Mick WilcocksonI mean yeah that's true - but Pablo wasn't actively sought after by Cellino though, he would've sanctioned the transfer once Garry Monk requested him but Berardi was purchased by Cellino without any opinion of the head coach

      @Oscar know what you are saying but the fact is when Gary Monk signed Pablo he was working for Cellino who would have sanctioned it. .

    • Oscar


      18 天 前

      @Mick Wilcockson No he didn't - Garry Monk signed Pablo. Berardi, along with Bianchi, Bellusci & co, was just a cheap signing that Cellino made when he first joined because he thought Serie B was a higher standard than the Championship
