The annual “how far will Leeds fans have to travel this season” article is out, and with the addition of Swansea City, and the subtraction of Barnsley FC, Leeds fans will once again have to put in the miles to travel.
Get ready to put in the miles this season. #lufc https://t.co/75AoMBvWCU— Leeds United News (@LeedsUnitedYEP) June 5, 2018
Besides the Yorkshire Derbies against Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United, and Rotherham United, the shortest journey for Leeds fans will be to Bolton Wanderers, even shorter than the distance to Hull City or Middlesbrough. Obviously the journey to Swansea will be the longest.
Anyway, prepare to once again spend the money to see Leeds on the road this season. I’d say take the train to avoid the petrol costs, but given the train “service” these days, you’d probably have to leave a week before the match to make sure you’d get there on time.
On to the links.
