Georginio Rutter, in his bench coat after the Swansea game, flinging his arms up towards the Kop in delight
Georginio Rutter makes football fun. So do Crysencio Summerville, Joel Piroe, and Dan James.
Three images side-to-side of Sam Greenwood celebrating his free-kick against Leicester. I'd love to tell you who the Middlesbrough player is jumping on his back, but I don't know who he is, because he's a Middlesbrough player
With a little help from our friends
There were Leeds United fingerprints all over Boro's win against Leicester, albeit some of them belonged to a manager we'd rather forget.
A drawing of Pablo Hernandez as the kings on a playing card
Stop making sense
When Pablo Hernandez retired he wasn’t done. Rob Conlon follows El Mago to Twitch and the Kings League, into Gerard Pique’s fever dream of football’s online future.
A photograph of the band Static Caravan, sitting in two rows like a five a side team
Bop it!
Static Caravan are the only band we’ve ever seen sample a ‘Bop It!’ toy live on stage and hand biscuits out to their audience.
Sam Byram celebrating with Summerville, Gnonto, Piroe and Kamara against Huddersfield, looking all happy and smiling
From the wilderness
He doesn't play like an old Sam Byram. He attacks like a young Max Gradel and defends like a… well, I'm not used to a Leeds left-back defending well, so I don't really know.
Crysencio Summerville looking delighted to see Georginio Rutter. He's ready to give him a hug, like he's been stranded in a broken down car and The AA has just arrived
Keep the faith
If a goal is scored but you cannot see or hear it, does it really count?
Two photos side by side of David Somma celebrating scoring for Leeds, with his arm in the air on the left, and with Luciano Becchio on his back on the right. Somma looks sickeningly handsome
Bring it on
Joel Piroe is the latest gunslinger in town, but he's not as quick on the draw as Davide Somma.
A photo of Josh Warrington with a towel over his head after being knocked out by Leigh Wood, next to a black and white photo of Josh draped over the ropes afterwards, gutted
Out of order
After going to Sheffield for Josh Warrington's fight against Leigh Wood, I hope Marcelo Bielsa is right on this one.
Mart Poom saves Brett Ormerod's penalty, and our Rob learned never to trust a loanee again
Glory Days
I never wished Ormerod any particular ill, but I think it’s fair to say we’re even.
A composite image of two photos, one of Sam Byram taking a throw-in, the other of Jamie Shackleton on the ball. People are already calling them Sammie Shackleram
Shack up
There's something just downright lovely about Shackleton and Byram playing full-back in the same Leeds team.
This is a terrible celebration by Raphinha. Barcelona you do not want this!
This week's manager
How can a fixture that was relatively recently contested in the Premier League feel so quintessentially Champo?
A scrapbook style collage of images of Leeds Cougars American football players, with the headline 'Bad Boys and Dirty Cougars' and the slogan 'Comin' at ya!'
Leeds would punch you in the mouth
The one club city everybody has a problem with: Leeds. Only this time the sport was American football. Rob Conlon speaks to players and coaches who brought the Leeds Cougars razzle-dazzle to 1980s Elland Road.
