Having returned from their pre season tour of Australia, Leeds now turn their attention to their last two friendlies against Girona and Cagliari this weekend.
The players surely had a good workout during their time abroad with many younger and fringe players also getting their chance to stake a claim to the first team during the tour.
With the likes of Mateusz Bogusz, Jack Harrison and Gaetano Berardi showing fine form in Australia, Whites supporters will have high hopes of finally seeing their team get back to the top flight this time around.
Another big reason for the high levels of optimism around Elland Road is the fact that Marcelo Bielsa will be at the helm this season as well with the veteran boss making quite an impression with the fans during his first year in charge.
The Argentine managed to get the club playing some very attractive football last season and were favorites to secure promotion for large spells of the campaign.
But it wasn’t to be, as an unpredcedented loss of form during the final games of the season and a shock defeat to Derby County in the play-offs prolonged their 15 year absence from the English top flight.
While the end result wasn’t what the club hoped to achieve, the road to the play-offs was certainly entertaining as the Whites blew away opponents throughout the season with their intense style of attacking football.
The powers that be at Amazon also noticed the noise coming out of Elland Road it seems as the company’s video streaming platform Amazon Prime decided to release a new docu-series featuring the Peacocks.
Covering the club’s push for promotion during the 2018-19 season, the six-part series, which has been narrated by Academy Award winner and Leeds fan Russell Crowe, features exclusive footage of the players and staff, covers the ‘Spygate’ scandal involving manager Marcelo Bielsa and also addresses the controversial uncontested goal against Aston Villa late last season.
With the Argentine boss perhaps being the most influential aspect behind Leeds’ drastic change in footballing style it wasn’t surprising to see Bielsa being heavily featured in the trailer of the upcoming series.
Fans seemed to love Bielsa’s appearance in the trailer and despite the disappointment of missing out on promotion, they seem to be definitely backing the manager this term as well and have high hopes on the Argentine once again overseeing some brilliant football when the Championship kicks off in August.
