Leeds United made a bold decision to hire Marcelo Bielsa in the summer and have not looked back.
After their fast start, perhaps it is worth turning attention to the doubts surrounding Bielsa before he took over.
One of the highest profile doubters was former Leeds boss Steve Evans.
Evans said: "Will he know what it's like going to the New York Stadium in Rotherham on a Tuesday night? I'm not so sure.
"But I'm looking at Steve Bruce and Mick McCarthy - English managers with track records of getting out of the Championship - and why are they not knocking on those doors?
"You would think the Leeds fans would be ecstatic if one of them is appointed."
The only celebrations if Leeds appointed Steve Bruce would have come from Aston Villa fans.
Evans' commented were derided by Leeds fans at the time, and Bielsa's early success makes them look even more misguided.
Bielsa may be a novice in English football, but he came prepared.
He claimed to have watched hours of video footage of the Leeds team, opponents, and it shows.
Leeds sit top of the Championship after eight games and are unbeaten.
A trip to Rotherham awaits in late January.
