Leeds were off this weekend, but one of their players played in a big game nonetheless.

Yosuke Ideguchi came on in the second half and Cultural Leonesa came from down 1-0 at half-time to win 2-1 over Sevilla B to pull itself out of the relegation zone.

It good to see Ideguchi playing well, even if we could have used him in at Leeds this season. It’s also good to see Leonesa get themselves out of the drop zone in La Liga 2, as the “partner” club in Spain needs to be playing at a high level if the team is to benefit from the deal. And, after all, All Aspire Aren’t We?

On to the Links.
