Boro 1-1 Leeds | Whites fall two points behind Canaries

Leeds fell two points behind Norwich City after being held by Middlesbrough at the Riverside. Lewis Wing’s 47th minute effort seemed to be enough to condemn the Whites to their third defeat in four games, but Kalvin Phillips popped up with an equaliser deep into stoppage time to give the visitors a point.

The result kept Leeds three points ahead of Sheffield United, who squandered a 3-0 lead with less than 10 minutes to go at Villa Park, with AVFC securing an unlikely draw.

Since Spygate, Leeds’ results haven’t been great. They’ve won only once in four games, and that was on the road against struggling Rotherham. Marcelo Bielsa’s men will take on Swansea at home in midweek.

Norwich, who had taken top spot in the Championship following their 3-1 win at Elland Road last week, Continue reading

Are Leeds United Ready for a Premier League Return?

There is a pretty valid argument to make a case for Leeds United being the biggest football club outside of the English top flight, and they are probably bigger than many clubs currently in the Premier League. However, size and having a rich history gets you nowhere in football, and Leeds have been in the second tier for a while now. However, since appointing new manager Marcelo Bielsa, things appear to be on the up for Leeds, and they are performing very well this season. The fans are behind the club, and there is a genuine feel-good factor around, so is this the year that Leeds United are going to make a return to the Premier League? Continue reading

Llorente to Leeds? Could Spanish striker be reunited with Marcelo Bielsa?

Promotion hopefuls Leeds United have set their eyes on bringing veteran Spanish striker Fernando Llorente to Elland Road on January. Llorente has never quite been a first team regular at Spurs since his arrival from Swansea in the summer of 2017 and most of his goals for Maurico Pochettino’s side have come from the bench, with Harry Kane preferred upfront. He has only made two league appearances for the Lilywhites this season- four minutes against West Ham, and nine minutes against Watford. Continue reading
