Also value added in enjoying going to Elland Road again and the feeling around the place. I look forward to going to games in a way I haven’t done for years.
Young fans are engaged again, which is massive.

Yep. I haven't enjoyed watching Leeds as much as this in years.

If you look at our goals for/against column, and didn’t know what had happened here you’d be forgiven for thinking that we were playing dull boring football a la George Graham

Instead we have been majestic to watch. An utter joy. Love this man and everything he stands for

Ooh, I'd take that Rhian lad off Cess if Eddie goes. Sounds like it can't happen though.

Phil Hay mentioned yesterday in his Q&A that should Eddie Nketiah leave, Rhian Brewster is a credible loan target in January. Also mentioned Cenk Tosun at Everton.

I can't see the logic in the article suggesting that a further on-loan keeper might be required, as the current on-loan keeper is untested. Meslier has played for France at every level up to U20 and was the subject of a €10m bid from Monaco in 2018. Admittedly his goalscoring record is poor but you can't have everything.

Has any manager of the month award winner ever immediately continued the form that won them the award in the first place? Asking for a friend.
I like it. What is it?
