Leeds United, despite having a rather difficult season in which the team appeared as if it was bound for promotion, only to crash and burn after January, leading the team to finish in 13th place, still had the second highest average attendance in the Championship.
Unbelievable support once again. #lufc https://t.co/leW7m9muoo— Leeds United News (@LeedsUnitedYEP) May 21, 2018
Leeds fans show up, no matter how dire the situation gets. Aston Villa may have had a bigger average attendance, but Villa Park is larger than Elland Road and they actually had a great season that has resulted in a playoff final.
So once again, Leeds fans are the best. But we already knew that.
On to the links.
