Well, how about them apples.

Both Kalvin Phillips and Leeds captain Liam Cooper were named to the EFL’s Team of the Season yesterday.

Of course, most Leeds fans are, rightly, angry right now that Pablo Hernandez was left of the team, and Pontus Jansson probably had a pretty good case to be made to be included as well. However, two players on the EFL team of the season is still pretty great, considering how far the club, and the players, have come this year.

On to the links.
