A lot of Leeds United fans have rushed to comment on a post by Phil Hay.
From our Unwritten series, a piece on David Batty.
– taken on by Tingley after answering an advert
– the trial which opened the door to LUFC
– “quiet kid” but an “animal” on the pitch

Absolute class of a player ?

Great read Phil. Underrated by those who don’t realise what he brought to a team (think Rio said that too). Never gave the ball away, top player ?.

My all time favourite. The player I wanted to be. Loved seeing him take the ball off the opposition and giving it to Strachan, Speed and Gary Mac ?

My fave, top boy

I’ve got something in my eye… I’ve been going to Leeds games for 44 years. I just missed out on seeing the great Revie side. For me Batts epitomises Leeds, not just the club but the city. As always, thanks Phil for capturing that.

Your best article yet for me, Phil. Loved it.

What do we think?
Is David Batty a Leeds legend?
The piece focuses on Batty’s rise from Tingley Athletic to Leeds United.
So, it is no wonder then that many Whites fans enjoyed this latest piece from Hay.
