Having been a key part of the Leeds United side for a few seasons now, fans love all-around utility man Gjanni Alioski. The Macedonian has been beloved for his energy, effort, and desire to get up and down the flank with consistency. However, he has also shown immense development in the way he plays the game; he is far more committed to positional discipline and attacking at the right times. His game has improved in every single way since he started to play for Leeds. His time in Yorkshire, though, might be coming to an end with talk that Galatasaray of Turkey expect him to be their player come February.Read More
As one of the most historical clubs in English football, Leeds United have had their fair share of legends wear the shirt. This is a club that has long been recognised for its outstanding contribution to the English game. However, prior to a series of catastrophic gambles financially in the early 2000s, Leeds were a genuine power in the English game. They would regularly fight for titles and for European honours – and chief among that was their legendary South African legend, Lucas Radebe.Read More
Having made headlines in the academy of Liverpool for years, eyes have been on Yan Dhanda since he was a youth player. His silky feet and gliding style on the pitch made him the perfect choice for many teams to try and sign when his time at Anfield came to an end. A move to Swansea City arrived, and he scored the winner on debut. Despite playing from time to time since, though, Dhanda has never truly held down a major starting role within the side. However, he has at times been among the most exciting young players to watch in the Championship – exciting enough to draw interest from afar.Read More
When Leeds United were promoted in the summer of 2020, it was seen as a major moment for English football. Here was a genuine powerhouse, a major name within northern football, back in the top-flight. And with that came a desire and a passion for spending money – something that Leeds were happy to do in the summer, breaking their own transfer record more than a few times. One place where signings might still be needed, though, is up-front. While Patrick Bamford has done a fine job in the top flight this time around, more numbers – and options – are likely needed to keep Leeds flying high.Read More
After Leeds United were promoted in the summer of 2020, it was expected the Yorkshire giants would make some big moves. While some transfers in the summer raised eyebrows, others made total sense. One transfer that was heavily linked but never took place, though, was the signing of Udinese midfield dynamo Rodrigo De Paul. The Argentine, who has previously played for Racing Club in Argentina and Valencia in Spain, is rated among the best midfield creators in the whole of the Italian Serie A.Read More
Football often has the opportunity to shock and excite, with the biggest shocks always involving a minnow overcoming a giant. For Leeds United, though, the feeling of both being a giant and a minnow can be relatively easy to recall. Go back to the start of the century, and Leeds were a competing for honours on several fronts; head back to the turn of the previous decade, though, and Leeds were mired in battles in the third and second divisions.
Only in 2020 did Leeds finally return to the top-flight, so even their days as Championship promotion contenders will feel fresh. Giants, though, they are – so it was pretty apt they were the largest name to fall in the third round of the English FA Cup as fourth-tier Crawley Town won 3-0.Read More
