Deputy Editor: Craig Scott

A regular at Elland Road, Craig is still prone to bursting into tears whenever we talk about the fact fans weren’t there when Leeds got back into the Premier League. Craig has always had Patrick Bamford’s back through thick and thin and is more-than-delighted to see him start life in the top-flight so fast.

Paul will bring you the latest insight and news each week, along with world-class punditry on the current Leeds team.

Pundit: Keith Hackett
