Well, better late than never to notice how good the club has been doing, right?

The problem with these articles is that it’s literally nothing that hasn’t been written before about how good the new ownership and management are for the club, with some premature talk of promotion thrown in. And yeah, it’s nice that the club is winning, but more importantly, the club is being run like a proper football club again. Articles that pair current the success of the club in the table with the shocking normalcy of the new ownership miss the point. Yes, the people in charge at Leeds are competent, but they still would be if Leeds was mid-table right now.

Anyway, it’s still nice that the BBC has noticed. Keep up, guys, Leeds United are back.

On to the links.
