After the 5-0 beat down of Burton, Nigel Clough was full of praise for Leeds, saying that the club was “excellent” from the first minute onward.
Well, of course he’s gonna say that. What is he going to say, his team was crap? I mean, they might be total crap, but Leeds were still very good Saturday and cruised to an easy victory over the out-classed Brewers.

Don’t want to travel to Millwall next Saturday? Well, who could blame you. Leeds United is showing the match at Elland Road if you care to pop on down to the stadium to watch a few thousand of your closest friends. [LeedsUnited.com]
Pontus Jansson is impressed with the goal-scoring options that Leeds currently have. He also told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he had heard from Sweden teammates that Pierre-Michel Lasogga was a “good guy”. If Pontus vouches for him, he’s good. [Yorkshire Evening Post]

Atlanta United opened their new home today with a match against FC Dallas. They’ll share the stadium with the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL, but today it was all about Atlanta United. Oh, they won 3-0 as well. [Dirty South Soccer]
Hamburger SV lost their first match without Pierre-Michel Lasogga, as they were beat at home by RB Leipzig. He’s probably more mature than me, because I’d send a text to my ex-manager saying “HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW” with the scoreline of the Leeds-Burton match, but I guess since he’s on loan, no reason to burn bridges or anything.
