Morning friends!

Leeds United links are below, but I wanted to take the time to repeat that the club has absolutely lost its mind hyping up Jay-Roy Grot, the new teenager that just signed for the club. For £750k. From a team in the Netherlands that was relegated from the Eredivisie.

Gary Speed? Eddie Gray? FFS.

How about just letting the kid come in and play and not hype him up so much that the fans turn on him?
