While things may go to pot on the pitch or the club might step on rakes and suffer through PR disasters of their own making, Leeds fans still show up.
Leeds has had attendances of more than 30,000 on 17 of the 22 home matches so far this season. That’s quite the accomplishment, especially given just how bad the team has played since Boxing Day. Leeds has averaged just under 32,000 fans this season, with a average league total of 31,590, second only behind Aston Villa.
Sleeping giant indeed.
On to the links.
