Adrian Durham and Darren Gough have hit back at Leeds United critics in the Premier League this season.
Numerous pundits have come out and questioned the Whites, claiming that they need to change their system if they want to succeed in the Premier League.
Leeds are currently sitting in 12th in the Premier League, and have a 12-point barrier to Fulham in the relegation zone.
Speaking on talkSPORT Drive on Monday evening, Durham remained shocked by critics of the Whites and Marcelo Bielsa.
“The most bewildering thing of the season for me,” he said. “Why do Leeds have to change?
“What’s the problem? No one has explained it, why do they have to change?”
Gough admitted that he agrees with Durham, claiming that they are playing without some of their better players and are still succeeding.
“I agree with you, I think the way that Leeds play is unbelievable. Yes, they make a lot of defensive errors, but they’re missing some of their best defenders.”
Leeds will always be one of the most talked about clubs in England, whether they are in the Premier League or in the Championship.
The worst thing about the criticism this season is that it turns into praise when the Whites pick up impressive wins – Paul Merson changes his mind every single week.
Gough makes the perfect point.
Leeds have picked up six points out of nine during the Christmas period, and that is with Luke Ayling and Pascal Struijk in the heart of the defence. It is hard to think of any other coach who could do that with such limited resources.
The Whites will always have their critics, and it is brilliant to hear two pundits come out in our defence, finally speaking some sense for once.
