Seven games unbeaten, and counting

Good Morning. It's Monday 25th November, and here are the latest Leeds Utd headlines...


Leeds leave it late

Lady luck shone on the Whites (for once) as an injury time own goal helped catapult them back to the automatic Promotion places. It was no more than Leeds deserved having dominated three quarters of the possession, and recording 21 shots, half of which were on target; largely down to heroics from Hatters stop stopper James Shea.

Leeds opened the scoring on the break. Former Leeds loanee Izzy Brown looked like he was taken out by Phillips, but the referee waved play on. The ball was fed to Bamford at the left hand side of the penalty area, and the number 9 fired it past Shea from an acute angle. Izzy Brown was instrumental in Luton's equaliser as he delivered an inch perfect cross to Collins at the far post, for the Republic of Ireland International to head across goal.

Leeds continued to press and were rewarded in injury time when Harrison latched on to a through ball from the far right hand side, and sent a low cross in Bamfords direction who was waiting at the near side of the goal. The pressure from our leading scorer caused West Yorkshire born and bred Matt Pearson to glance the ball into his own net at the dismay of 10,000 Luton fans.

Leeds completed the most passes in the Championship last weekend (540) and were second with the amount of tackles (23). The Whites also led the rest of the Championship with shots on target, possession and passing accuracy.



What could Leeds do with Izzy Browns creativity

Who was impressed by Izzy Brown? Excluding setting up the equaliser, the 22yo, alongside Cormick dominated proceedings for the Hatters. Only poor finishing from Luton denied the Chelsea loanee from collecting two or three assists. Given the chance, who would have Izzy Brown in our squad?

Reaction to the Sky Blue kit

What is your reaction to Leeds new sky blue kit? Did you like it? Will it grow on you?

Does it matter what colour our kit is; even if it was red?

Izzy was great when he played for Huddersfield and helped them to promotion
but then his injury put him out of action for almost a year. But if I were looking for
a classy midfielder I would go for Eze from QPR. That boy has talent. Runs with the ball
as though it is tied to his shoelace, and is always looking up and aware of what is going
on around him.
Eze showed glimpses when QPR came to Leeds a few weeks back. But I liked how Brown was able to use strength against us.

Eze looks good. Stays fit too.

Matt, hopefully you'll be using the same headline on Wednesday morning, as we're 6 unbeaten at the moment. :)

Izzy Brown. He put himself about, was a handful at times, so if it was a coin toss between him or Clarke then Brown showed enough quality to play for us.

Morning folks.

Great to put together a run. Three wins in three and looking at the fixture list we have four very winnable games before it gets trickier. Klich especially needs to find his shooting boots. He had so many chances from the edge of the box on Saturday to add to his total. Has his pen miss affected him?

Blue strip looked white at times on the screen so all is good :)
