Thanks to the YEP.
“Ayling at the back, Bamford in attack. Leeds are going to the Premier League!” Ayling just can’t stop scoring and Patrick’s just glad he got his first one since his brace in the 3-2 win over Millwall back in January.
Man of the Match: A tough one because many in white had good games but Stuart Dallas for me just gets it for a superb shift at left back. For me this season’s Player of the Season.
Leeds' Marcelo Bielsa: "Maybe the competition will finish with the last match, maybe before. We have 27 points left to play for, and we don't know how many we are going to need, but we have nine matches to get them.
"Of course, there will be anxiety until we get what we are looking for, but this is the same for every team in the league. The most important now is what happens when the competition gets to the finish. A few months ago we had 11 points difference (to the play-off places) and we lost it. What we have to do is wait until the end to see what happens."
Huddersfield's Danny Cowley: "We had to hang on to Leeds in the second half. We saw the best team in the league playing at the top of their game today. They were relentless at times.
"I've had 13 years as a manager, and that was right up there in terms of an opponent's performance. I thought they were outstanding. That was a blueprint in terms of their physical quality and intent. They have so much purpose."
David Watkins on the easier than he thought it would be victory over Huddersfield and another ‘double’ added to the impressive list. Yesterday’s was fifth in a row for Leeds.
Thank you David. I think you need to be thinking about getting a really ‘special’ malt whiskey for the beginning of May, maybe a little earlier to toast the lads with.
The last nine games. Who plays who and where.
Stuart Dallas on Ayling’s goal and the game with Huddersfield Town: "He doesn't normally strike them like that but I've got to give it to him, he did one exactly the same in training yesterday.
Luke Ayling’s ‘humdinger’ against Town.
“I'm sure you'll see it on his Instagram or something at some stage. It was a great ball in from Jack, great technique and it's a great start for us."
“I think we were comfortable in the end but in this league you are one mistake away from conceding. You have got to concentrate for the full 90 minutes and it was a good professional job.
"There's a lot of things we can improve on and we will have a rest day on Sunday and we will come back in on Monday and prepare for Cardiff."
Due to the Coronavirus, Leeds United have temporarily closed Thorp Arch to all but first team, U23s and U18s. Women's side and other academy teams to be relocated. Training ground also closed to all "non-essential visitors". No date at this stage for return to normal use.
Looks like no pre game interview with Marcelo Bielsa for a while unless they do it via social media or journalists put their questions on a hastily organised WattsApp group chat page!
Liverpool are only six points from claiming their first Premier League or old Division One title since 1990 because manure beat Man. City 2-0 at old farmyard. Ironically the same season Leeds were promoted from Division Two.
Pablo Hernandez. 150 up and all the goals he’s scored in them.
Leeds have kept 17 clean sheets this season(46% of our games), more than any other side in the top four tiers of English football. We haven’t conceded a goal in 515 minutes of football(over eight & a half hours)and are averaging just 0.81 goals conceded per game (30/37).
Thanks to @LUFCDATA.
Bielsa cam. Whilst the entire back room staff and subs celebrate Ayling’s wonder strike Bielsa sits unmoved on his bucket.
Heidi Haigh pre match nerves and a meeting with a few Leeds legends in the Pavillion, one that remembered meeting her at a Selby Player of the Year ‘do’ back in 1985. All this and her superb blog and pictures of the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.
Thank you Heidi hope you enjoyed your ‘special’ day.
WALL’s very own Ryan Ingham took friend Luke Waite on the to Fanzone for what is an entertaining match.
Top of the league and still unbeaten, a great way to end a pretty tough week publicity wise for the club due to the details of the Kiko Casilla incident at Charlton being released.
Berardi shows his value. Graham Smyth on why ‘the warrior’ is definitely worth a new deal to keep him at Leeds.

Quote of the weekend also from Graham Smyth of the YEP “Things are not falling apart, they appear to be falling into place for Leeds United.”
A clown visiting the ‘dog botherers’ with his circus produced this masterclass of nonsense. A reminder that Leeds won both games this season by a 2-0 scoreline. Fact not Fiction.
Last words on the excellent win over Huddersfield come from one of their players. Harry Toffolo on why Leeds are so good: “It was the most suffocating a team has been against us and that's why they are up there.
“It's a fair reflection of the league and they deserve to be up there. They have an exceptional manager and the players were top class.
“I thought Leeds were exceptional and the movement of the players was the best I have come across in the league so far in what I have seen."
7,700 tickets for Blackburn Rovers away were sold out in less than an hour today. Incredible support once again.
Carlos Corberan names a strong Leeds United U23’s side with Douglas, Shackleton, Alioski, Poveda and Roberts all starting against Barnsley. The game ended 1-1 with Bobby Kamwa getting the Leeds goal.
Leeds United defender Luke Ayling has been nominated for the PFA Bristol Street Motors Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for February.
After a losing start to February, the full-back helped Leeds go on a five game unbeaten run for the rest of the month, which included four wins and four clean sheets in a row.
He scored the winning goal in the 1-0 victory over Bristol City at Elland Road and also scored the opening goal of Leeds' 4-0 away win at Hull City. He previously won the award in December 2019.
By no means is this job done, nine more ‘cup finals’ to come and every single point will have to be earned by Leeds, starting in Wales on Sunday lunchtime when Leeds travel to meet Cardiff City.
Although quite a few gave ‘Jacky’ Harrison the MOTM for his terrific performance on Saturday and he was so unlucky not to register a goal for the second week running. Myself though I picked Stuart Dallas, he worked throughout the 90 plus minutes stoically and he must be in the frame for the Player of the Year award at the end of the season.
On to Cardiff City!
