Can we avoid this question? Are Leeds United bad again now?
Leeds are still looking up, and looking forward.
At Leeds over recent years we’ve beat our heads against the trope that doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is a form of insanity. Well, I guess that’s why they call Marcelo Bielsa ‘El Loco’.
Leeds swaggered away from Hillsborough with esteem intact; not even Adam Reach’s absurd goal had damaged them.
Leeds United’s unbeaten run ended at full-time. The recovery started an hour earlier.
Preston came to Elland Road like a greatest hits of things that might work against Leeds. Didn’t work.
Leeds United might burn out this season, but they’re not going to wither away.
The lingering impression from seeing Bielsa take on Pulis was not that one style of football works better than another
Things have changed so much at Leeds United this season, and getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup didn’t change anything back.
It’s a joy to watch a footballer take control of a game and produce something beautiful, almost architectural, that they designed and planned.
