'Story's become interesting' – Phil Hay hints at possible u-turn over Leeds off-the-pitch deal
Athletic journalist Phil Hay has hinted that a second season of Take Us Home, Amazon’s Leeds United documentary, could be on the cards after a very “unique” season.
Take Us Home was a fascinating look behind-the-scenes of Marcelo Bielsa’s first season at Elland Road, although it didn’t have the ending that Leeds fans wanted.
Leeds are on the brink of promotion for the second season running under Bielsa but the Coronavirus outbreak has seen football suspended since March.
Hay responded to a Leeds fans who said, “I bet Amazon are regretting leaving” by replying, “Interested to see what Amazon do tbh. The story’s become pretty interesting (and unique).”

Hay had said previously that the cameras have been at Elland Road this season, although far less high-profile than they were in the 18/19 season and the feeling at Leeds was that there wouldn’t be a second season.
Take Us Home coming home?
We really think there’s a massive chance of Take Us Home coming back now – especially if the Championship season resumes and Leeds win promotion.
It’s been the most unique season of our lifetime and having that chronicled alongside Leeds finally winning promotion back to the Premier League is a heady mix.
We really hope Amazon do come through with Season 2 and the story is then surely open for a trilogy if Leeds do secure promotion to the top-flight.
Amazon could hit the jackpot, with Leeds set to resume their rivalry with Man United in a season where Bielsa will take his Championship squad and put it up against the very best in England.
It will suddenly be a high-profile, mainstream story that every football fan in England will be interested in.
Amazon, we’re looking at you.
If you haven’t watched the first season yet it’s available for free if you’ve got an Amazon Prime subscription.
It’s the perfect build-up to the Championship potentially restarting on June 20.
