'Superior' - Russell Crowe responds to Leeds fan with joyous Twitter message

Hollywood actor and Leeds United fantastic Russell Crowe has taken to social media to send a joyous message to one supporter.

The A-lister is a renowned Whites supporter, and even narrated Take Us Home, the Amazon documentary on Marcelo Bielsa’s first season at Elland Road.

And it would appear that the New Zealander is still absolutely buzzing over his beloved side winning promotion back to the Premier League.

Responding to a fellow Leeds fans praising his performance in latest film Unhinged, the 56-year-old wrote on his personal Twitter account: “This is a solid review, however, you have to keep in mind that Leeds fans will currently be finding every single thing in their daily lives superior on account of the fact that WE ARE GOING UP!!!”

This is brilliant from Crowe, and it’s clear that he is still feeling the exact level of excitement that the rest of us are too.

A few weeks might have passes since we secured promotion, but the buzz hasn’t subsided any, and if anything, the closer the new season gets, the more palpable it is.

Whether he intended to or not Crowe has really hit on the crux of what promotion means to Leeds too.

It isn’t just about a club reaching the Premier League, it’s about the optimism and unity it will bring to the city as a whole.

There have been some dark times for Leeds fans in recent years, but the fact that we have weathered that storm and have now come out the other side is testament to the loyalty and perseverance of the fanbase.

Crowe’s comments are a nice reminder of that fact.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites have made an approach for this English midfielder.
