Good Morning. It's Wednesday 2nd December, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...

Ballot to decide which Leeds fans return to Elland Road

Leeds United have issued a statement on their website informing fans how they plan to decide which fans should take precedent once the Government decides that restricted numbers are allowed back. Unfortunately, Leeds fans are not happy and have taken to social media to express their displeasure!

According to
return at a reduced capacity. The size of the allocation will be dependent on the capacity available. All 2020/21 Members will be included in a ballot to gain access to these tickets. The club have also compensated members for the reduced access to tickets on top of receiving an exclusive gift pack which will be dispatched in the coming weeks, Leeds United ‘My Leeds’ Members* will also be entitled to the following:

Adults: £20 retail e-gift voucher
Juniors: £10 retail e-gift voucher

Gotts starting to make in roads at Sincil Bank Stadium

Leeds highly rated academy prospect Robbie Gotts is finally delivering on the pitch for Lincoln City. Gotts will be aware that at 21 year old, he'll be expected to be playing lower league football week in, week out as well as catching the eye of gaffer Michael Appleton. Recently, the versatile midfielder earned himself the man-of-the-match trophy in an EFL Trophy win over Manchester City’s Under-23 side; though this may have had something to do with hundreds of Leeds fans hijacking an online poll.

Gotts broke into the starting eleven against Swindon Town (with Jordan Stevens playing for Swindon). Gotts played at right back, and helped Lincoln win 1-0! Last weekend, despite a 2-0 FA Cup loss to Plymouth, Gotts earned a second MOTM award, this time in midfield. Gotts has 18 months on his contract. Let's hope he continuous to impress!

It has not been an easy season so far for many of Leeds’ loanees. Alfie McCalmont is struggling to establish himself at Oldham Athletic, Ryan Edmondson has scored just twice in 11 games for Aberdeen and Real Oviedo are hoping to convince Leeds United to cancel Rafa Mujica’s loan spell. Although not pulling up any trees, Jordan Stevens has ten appearances under his belt for John Sheridan's Swindon Town!

There's better news for Bryce Hosannah. His displays for the Bantams have earned him a new contract at Elland Road. Why are the Leeds youngsters finding it so hard to progress to the next level?

That would make sense.

The other thing you could do, is to allocate extra ballot tickets depending how long you've had a season ticket.

You've been a season ticket holder for 10 years. Here's 10 tickets for the ballot!

Season-tickets holders should get priority
I assumed that they meant season ticket holders. They should get priority.

Ex-Leeds star Alex Sabella moved to intensive care in ‘delicate’ condition after picking up virus from hospital

FORMER LEEDS and Sheffield United star Alejandro Sabella is in intensive care and a ‘delicate’ condition in hospital.

The 66-year-old Argentine, who managed the his home nation until 2014, was rushed ‘urgently’ into hospital from his hometown La Plata to a facility in Buenos Aires last Thursday.

TYCSports claimed that Sabella attended the Cardiovascular Institute of Buenos Aires due to fluid retention in his legs.

They claimed the condition was not believed to be as serious as originally feared as he was making steady progress.

However, the same outlet now states he has picked up a virus while in hospital.

And now he is suffering with heart problems.

Sabella has been moved into an intensive care room and is receiving respiratory support.

The hospital has also provided a statement on his condition, stating he is in 'reserved prognosis'.

It revealed Sabella has a ‘dilated heart disease secondary to coronary disease and cardiotoxicity, with cardiogenic shock and previous infection, leading to a reserved prognosis’.

There has been a huge outpour of support from within Argentina, with ex-Manchester United and Chelsea star Juan Sebastian Veron leading them.
