It has been a pleasure bringing Leeds United news and opinions to you here at Through It All Together this season, and really since I started covering the team here in 2015. I’m not going anywhere, this isn’t that sort of post.
But even with Brighton coming up on Saturday, our staff is kind of in the doldrums. The loss at home to QPR on Saturday was as boring, as depressing as they can come for a team in the play off spots. James touched on it a bit on Sunday: rough in the midfield, no creativity when needed... it wasn’t good.
So that didn’t really help. Our staff has struggled to write this month: I think we’re all just nervously awaiting our fate, scared to hope and dream, worried about a potential collapse.
Leeds Twitter has seemed quiet too. Maybe you’re all in this with us right now too. Who knows.
And then... THIS HAPPENED.

WHAT THE **** IS THIS??
Our friends at We Are Leeds posted this video on Sunday, cryptically, with the sunglasses emoji, and my world melted. I wanted to simultaneously vomit and throw something off a bridge.
Other people LOVED IT.
WHAT IS HAPPENING?
I’d really like you to discuss this in the comments section below. I need someone to explain what’s happening here. This is not okay.
Here’s the best I can figure out, seriously, from stalking We Are Leeds’ Twitter account. (No, this is not hard-hitting journalism, I just need answers, people.)
@Jharrold1995 HOW DARE YOU!?!? This is our official playoff song!!! ... all jokes aside it apparently is our playoff/chairty song. Not good.— We Are Leeds (@weareleeds_) March 12, 2017
@adriangrubb54 we as fans had absolutely no say in this. It's apparently our "official" play-off song, you can imagine the hate it has got— We Are Leeds (@weareleeds_) March 12, 2017
@martinp10984 that was the rumour going round, was leaked by the charity & had a music video shoot before QPR apparently its embarrassing— We Are Leeds (@weareleeds_) March 13, 2017
@Samwoodlufc @Reverend_Makers the club are playing their part in this monstrosity though. Original video got taken down due to copyright.— We Are Leeds (@weareleeds_) March 13, 2017
So really, who knows. Sounds like this is some sort of official song that got leaked, but I don’t really care. I need it out of my ears/brain as fast as possible.
Thanks for reading, sorry I cursed you with it. All credit to We Are Leeds, send all love/hate their way please.
Looking forward to Saturday. MOT.
