A professional, businesslike, well-run football club enters pre-season. Who wins? Not Leeds United much.
When Marco Silvestri left the club in July, he left a mixed legacy of wonder saves and horror blunders, a family that made the city their home and a red mark on his back. It’s time to reflect on his three years at Leeds.
Back in March 2011, TSB published a centre spread by Wayne Gamble of The Beaten Generation, bringing all 54 of the players Leeds United had signed on loan since 2004 together in one handy graphical guide — 54 players who played for Leeds (well, most of them) who weren’t even ours.
There’s a fresh feeling at Leeds United, like we’ve never played a home league game ever, or at least, like the worst of the last five years since Simon Grayson was sacked never happened.
