Good Morning. It's Tuesday 24th November, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road


Fans to be allowed back into stadiums in England at end of lockdown

It is understood that the Department of Culture, Media and Sport have submitted proposals to the Cabinet Office for spectators to attend games in areas where coronavirus infection rates are low. If successful, once lockdown is lifted on the 2nd December, we could see fans back at Elland Road, but only a small percentage!

Stadiums in Tier 1 will be permitted to hold up to 4,000 spectators; grounds in tier 2 can welcome up to 2,000 fans; grounds in Tier 3 must continue to hold events behind closed doors. Although cases in Leeds are now falling, we were poised to go into Tier 3 before the national lockdown came in. Is Leeds likely to be in Tier 3 from 2nd December, will it still be soem time before fans return to Elland Road?

Outdoors stadiums in tier 1 areas - deemed to be medium risk by the Government - will be allowed to hold up to 4,000 socially-distanced fans or half of their maximum capacity, depending on which is fewer. Once restrictions are lifted, how is it worked out who should be part of the 4000?





Leeds Offered Chance to Sign Barcelona’s Ace on loan

Leeds are one of several sides who have been offered the chance to sign Barcelona central midfielder Riqui Puig on loan for the remainder of the season. The talented 21-year-old is seen by many as one of the brightest in boss Ronald Koeman's squad yet the former Saints Manager has only used the youngster once this season, a three minute cameo role!

Puig's agent is keen for his client to progress and has had conversations with RB Leipzig,Monaco and Leeds about a possible loan move in January. Bielsa's possession-based style of play is seen as the ideal system for Puig to showcase his skills, but there are several other English sides in the conversation for the 21-year-old's signature.

Coldest I felt last season was in the away end at Forest, mind you my pals & I were on the front row near the corner flag. I had to nip up to the concourse & buy a chocolate bar & a coffee to warm myself up. I found a seat higher up in the stand for the second-half.

Not a great day although I'll always remember the Forest fans singing 'Leeds Leeds are falling apart again'. Silly tits thought they were going up after that victory, they missed out on a play-offs & the rest is history

Ironic as Forest are in the relegation zone this season
And I've bet on them for promotion [emoji3526]
