Well, this is just a depressing stat.
Leeds have now picked up just 7 points from their last 36 available, no Championship side has managed fewer.— LUFCDATA (@LUFCDATA) March 7, 2018

Despite being around the playoff places for months this season, Leeds have been on an absolute dire run of form lately. Sacking Thomas Christiansen hasn’t had the effect that everyone thought it would have had, and the club is still looking for answers during this long, dreadful spell.
Will a trip to Reading start to turn things around? Or should Leeds do just enough to prevent relegation and press the reset button in the summer? This is almost the same squad that was top of the league back in August.
What the hell happened?
