So that sucked.

Thomas Christiansen has tasted defeat for the first time as a manager in England, as Leeds lost at Millwall yesterday. No need to rehash the result anymore, but the key will not be to dwell on the loss but to rebound from it. Leeds take on Burnley in the League Cup this week and also host Ipswich Town next Saturday, so the challenge for Christiansen will be to adjust the team accordingly at get the win against Ipswich.

On to the links.
