Has Bailey Peacock-Farrell done enough to be the starting goalkeeper next season for Leeds?

Peacock-Farrell was quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post as saying:

I don’t feel out of depth and I’m enjoying the moment.

In my opinion I can do it. But it’s up to the gaffer for next season, who he decides to play. It’s far away.

Obviously there’s room for improvement in all my performances but I’m happy to keep the shirt and keep the number one spot. Hopefully I can finish the season and play the rest of the games.

Honestly, his play has been one of the few bright spots this season, and while it might be nice to get an experience back-up next season, there is no reason that BPF shouldn’t be the starting keeper day one of next season.

On to the links.
