'Incredible', 'Amazing', 'Wow' – Graham Smyth and some fans react to brilliant new Leeds merch
Wow. That’s the only word you can use to describe the new Leeds United Mishmash print from Alex Bennett.
Bennett claims that he’s been working on the artwork since August 2020 and is hoping to get it completed by January 2021.
By then, he estimates he will have spent 1,000 hours working on it. That’s 1,000 hours very well spent in our opinion.
In the latest ‘work in progress’, Bennett says that “new additions include the 1992 Champions, Michael Bridge’s debut goal, Hasselbaink celebrating vs Man Utd, Terry Cooper’s League Cup Final winner & the pantomime horse pitch invade in 1975!”

If you’ve got good eyesight or a magnifying glass you can read all the Leeds moments that are in the print on the sides of the image above. Click through to see it full size.
Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth described it as “incredible” and we completely agree.

It’s a shame it’s not going to be ready before Christmas as we think this is the perfect present for the Leeds United mad fan.
However, you can pre-order it and be one of the first to get your hands on it. It costs £24.95 for a print on 170g paper with a gloss finish.
We absolutely love it and these Leeds fans do too…
This is amazing. Great work.
Looking for Andy Hughes. For me this is an iconic moment. He gets what it is to Leeds and what that meant to us. pic.twitter.com/PYvNF2W1aM

We had some correspondence a while ago about the scoreboard. I’ve just ordered. It’s brilliant. One extra random addition – cult hero Gaetano Berardi once scissor kicked James Beattie on his debut in the league cup. Sideways-on. Pretty cool image if you find it!
