Leeds United fans know all about the talents of ‘Digital Wilson’, the man on the club’s Twitter levers.
And, the rest of the footballing world was introduced to him today as Henry Winter devoted column inches to his prowess following the 3-0 win against Fulham.
Writing in his regular column in The Times Winter said, “Their Twitter account is Premier League class, arguably Champions League class. It’s innovative, informative, funny and pure Leeds in its defiance. The person behind it is the club’s social media manager, Craig Wilson, who fans rush to salute whenever he unleashes another gem.
“In the build-up to Saturday’s match Scott Parker, the Fulham manager, described Leeds as ‘scripted’ and ‘patterned’ in their play, though in fairness he wasn’t being critical. After a comprehensive 3-0 win, Leeds tweeted: “A ‘scripted’ and ‘patterned’ Leeds defeat Fulham.” That got 8,000 likes.
“During the game, when Fulham’s Neeskens Kebano was sent off, there was a nice nod to modern football folklore with a picture of the Chris Kamara cardboard cut-out in the stands and the words: “There’s a red card at Elland Road @chris_kammy, but who to?” That garnered 12,000 likes. Laughing on together.”

Few escape the merciless wrath of Digital Wilson.
And he was at it again on Sunday when he retweeted the odd post that Fulham put out ahead of the game, celebrating a blatant foul on Pierre-Michel Lasogga.
They posted, “Seeing more perfect tackles tomorrow” and Wilson hit back with a clip of substitute Neeskens Kebano getting his marching orders after a foul in injury time.
If you come at Leeds on Twitter then you have to finish the job, otherwise you’re going to get schooled by Wilson.
That happened after the Fulham players were schooled on the pitch and Scott Parker was schooled by Marcelo Bielsa.
It was the perfect weekend for Leeds.
