Starting with an easy one who is Leeds United's top Premier League goalscorer this season?

Before the game, Leeds players wore the same t-shirts as opponents Liverpool were one of the clubs who intend to join this Super League.

However, it was Orta’s actions that drew the attention of these Whites fans who were very happy.

He gets it. I really hope he’s here for a while yet. Need more of those people who get it, and get Leeds”

Did you like Orta doing this?

The backlash to the ESL has been extreme, with the British government also strongly against the idea, along with FIFA and UEFA.

So, it will be interesting to see what happens, but it was great to see Orta representing the fans, and this post continued to draw in Whites fans who had their say.

What a boy”

The whole situation is moving quickly, but two of the English clubs committed to the league are apparently having doubts, so perhaps there is a chance the entire thing collapses, which could be fantastic news for those battling the proposals.
