Once again, Leeds United is going about things the right way.
The club has announced that it will buy the Peter Lorimer memorabilia that was recently announced to be for sale, including medals and caps from the Leeds United legend. The club also announced that “Our intention is to house Peter Lorimer's caps and medals in a museum at Elland Road, which will launch as part of our centenary celebrations.”
Part of doing things the right way is to never forget the past of Leeds United, and the purchase of the Peter Lorimer memorabilia is honouring the past of the club, and should be celebrated. It’s the “little” things like this, or the painting of the mural by Elland Road, sprucing up of the ground, etc., that shows the total commitment to the club by Radrizzani. While it’s easy to focus on the footballing side, it’s also important to remember that it’s not just the results on the pitch that determine a well-run club, but how everything works behind the scenes as well. Good on them.
