Plenty of Leeds United fans have rallied around talkSPORT presenter Adrian Durham following his comments on their style of play.
It has attracted a lot of debate in recent times about whether or not it is sustainable in the Premier League, especially after their 6-2 defeat at Old Trafford leading to head coach Marcelo Bielsa to come out and launch a staunch defence of his system. It happened again after their 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, with former Leeds man Rio Ferdinand saying (on BT Sport, via Leeds Live) things need to change going forward.
But it appears as though the ever-controversial pundit Durham appears to be one of the people sticking up for Bielsa’s men right now. Speaking on talkSPORT recently, he claimed that Leeds United will probably stay in the division, and do it in style, a perfect combination.
This led to a flood of praise for him from Leeds United fans on social media, using his comments as a sort of rally cry to stick up for their side:
“People want him to change to fit in with the boring stereotypical English manager that has attended all the Uefa Coaching coarses. Otherwise it shows up how dull the Uefa perception of how they think the game should be played is.”
Are you a fan of Leeds United's style of play?
You do start to wonder at what point this debate will be put to bed, and if we’re going to have to go through it again next season if Leeds stay up.
