Oh oh oh he’s magic! Man of the moment for Leeds.
Aaron Ramsey announces his intentions to join Juventus at the end of the Arsenal deal and signs a contract worth £400k per week. We’re sure he’s going for ‘footballing reasons’ too.
Sad news as England’s top stopper Gordon Banks passes away. Many will remember his wonder save against Pele.

Leeds MOTM: Kalvin Phillips just beats Pontus Jansson for the MOTM award. Both superb.
Pontus opens the scoring, Ezgjan and Jack celebrate number two.
Marcelo Bielsa: "I think we deserved to win. It's hard to understand why we only won by one goal because we dominated the game and had many chances to score. When we win the game we can wait for the next game with serenity.”
"We would like to dedicate this win to Jack Clarke because each of us feels he deserves this win. We hope he will recover well and will let him take all the time he needs to recover."
Graham Potter: "Leeds have got as good a chance of getting promoted as anybody from what I've seen. That's as tough a test as we've had this season. Leeds are a good team and played well.”
"You saw the character of our players not to go under because you can quite easily go under here. They didn't and stayed in the game. That's a learning point for them as they go forward. You can't just dominate games and play nice football at these places. You've got to survive and dig in. We did that to enable us to at least make a fight of it in the end."
“Should have come to Leeds” Daniel James gets a consoling hug from Kiko Casilla.
Thursday 14/2 💙💛
David Watkins on a much better performance from Leeds, just need the chances created turned into goals.
Thank you David.

Close-knit spirit dragging Leeds United through as Marcelo Bielsa prepares for one final Championship push
Excellent article by YEP’s Phil Hay.
When Leeds needed a couple of good performances and points, the draw at Boro and the victory over Swansea may be just what the ‘doctor ordered’ after some displays that were short of what the faithful had come to expect.
The ten day break will hopefully put much needed rest into bones and muscles before testing games against WBA, Sheffield United, Bristol City next month. Not saying that Bolton Wanderers home, away trips to QPR and Reading will be easy games.
The Championship proves week in, week out that you take these teams easier at your peril !!
