We’re still not down from Cloud Nine yet after the brilliant 2-1 Leeds United win against Man City on Saturday.
Some amazing commentary that’s emerged from the City Xtra channel certainly hasn’t helped.
It was the biggest and best win of the season for Leeds but for every high, there’s a low and that’s been illustrated here beautifully and in real-time.
The commentary was played on the latest episode of the Propaganda podcast by The Square Ball crew.
Daniel Chapman introduced it saying, “City Xtra we dealt with quite a lot in the previous podcast when they were hanging around in a computer-generated bar.
“They don’t seem to have used it for this one. It’s two lads, they’ve started calling each other bro, which they weren’t doing for the game at Elland Road.”
Michael Normanton picked up the baton and said, “They’ve ditched the bar but they seem to be on separate webcams but in the same bedroom.
“They’re definitely sitting next to each other. You can see them looking across but they’re doing this split-screen thing.”
Chapman said the clip – which you can watch from 2hrs:23mins in on the YouTube video below (and we’d seriously suggest you watch it as the text doesn’t do it justice) – was “the Winner” of the podcast.
Bro 1: “I mean, three minutes of injury time, three minutes, is that enough time?”
Bro 2: “Of course it is… It might be enough time for them.”
Bro 1: “Oh no, no, no, no, no…”
Bro 2: “They’re in behind…”
Bro 1: “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no…”
Bro 2: “It’s Leeds 2-1.”
Bro 1: “Yo, I said it. They had chances to score.”
Bro 2: “I can’t believe it.”
Bro 1: “They had chances. That’s what happens when you miss chances guys. We did it against Dortmund. Today we missed our chances and lost the game because we are not clinical enough. Spend £150m on Haaland because this club has too many players that can’t score.”
More goal-scorers needed
Too many players who can’t score?
This is amazing. Man City have scored 67 goals in 32 games, by far the most in the Premier League.
Admittedly, they’ve only scored two in two games against us and only taken a point from a maximum of six, but you can’t have it all.
The answer from the Bro fans is for Pep to go out and spend £150m on a new striker.
It’s definitely one way of approaching a problem in football but it’s not what got Leeds the three points at The Etihad.
This was a result born from character, effort and a squad togetherness and fitness that has created a never-say-die attitude among the players.
The positivity from Leeds at the moment is so bright you need to wear shades to watch them.
You look back at some of the results where we haven’t taken the points when we should have – like the 0-0 against Arsenal – and wonder where we might be if we’d turned all dominance into points.
Mid-table is amazing. And it could get even better, as the Bros know.
