There was a time when Leeds United were one of if not the most feared team in England as the Peacocks utterly dominated the rest of the division under Don Revie till the 70s and were considered one of the mainstays in the Premier League during it’s early years. But the Whites suffered relegation in 2004 and haven’t been able to get back to the top tier of English football for more than a decade amidst constant shuffling in ownership and management.
But things finally look like they are about to change this season as a Marcelo Bielsa sparked revolution has got the Peacocks firing on all cylinders in the Championship. The home fans have been flocking to Elland Road to watch the brilliant football being played under the Argentine’s watch.
While attendance has always been on the higher side at Elland Road, a new graphic released by Depor&Finanzas underlines how the fans have especially gotten behind the team this season.
According to the graphic, Leeds United rank third in average attendance taken across second divisions in all of Europe with an impressive 32,942 supporters walking through the doors at Elland Road on an average during matchdays.

Elland Road has indeed been rocking this campaign and the numbers clearly signify the positivity that has been brought back to the club following Biesla’s appointment.
