Thomas Christiansen said after the match that it’s been a “very good week.”

The battering at the hands of Wolverhampton made everyone freak out a little bit in midweek, but let’s not forget that Leeds hadn’t won at Barnsley in over 20 years, and the team beat a Middlesbrough team that has had buckets of money invested in it. And while maybe Leeds should be beating teams like Boro, losing to Wolves is no shame.

So has this been a good week? Two wins out of three matches and still only three points out of the playoff places is pretty decent. December is not going to get easier, so hopefully the club can go back to the team that looked great in August.

On to the links.
