Happy Birthday Kalvin!

It’s sometimes hard to forget just how young the central midfielders are at Leeds United. Ronaldo Vieira and Kalvin Phillips have been key parts of this squad, and Phillips just turned 22 yesterday and Vieira is still only 19 years old. Their combined ages are still only 41 years old and they really are playing beyond their years, even if they do make a occasional daft challenge.

Anyway, this just reinforces just how lucky Leeds are to have a midfield that is pretty much set for the next 7 or 8 years.

On to the links.
