This would have been bad news like two months ago, but it doesn’t really matter now.

Pablo Hernandez, who has been the best player for Leeds this season, is likely to miss Sunday’s final match of the 2017-18 season against Queens Park Rangers.

Yeah, it would have been nice to see him play at Elland Road one more time this season, but it doesn’t matter at all. The team’s performance against Norwich City was shameful, and it would sully the good name of Pablo Hernandez to have him feature any more this season with this lot.

Go and enjoy spending some time with your family Pablo, you’ve earned it. The rest of them need to run some sprints or stairs or something.

On to the links.
