It’s odd how positive some fans are feeling after a defeat.

Just goes to show how great a performance it was, that people are talking in such a glowing manner about it even if it wasn’t the result that we were perhaps after. Leeds showed in the game against Arsenal that they are more than capable of playing with the so called ‘big teams’, with the BBC stats from the game showed that Leeds had more possession, total shots and shots on target.

And that’s why Leeds United defender Barry Douglas, speaking to the club website after the game spoke about how the club need to keep up that level of performance for the rest of the season if they are to have any chance of getting promoted:

“We’ve set the standard, that’s the demands we put on ourselves and what the manager puts on us and it is up to us to sustain that now.”

Words that were pretty much music to the ears of Leeds United fans, as they responded in one of two ways. Either praising what he said and reflecting on just how good the performance was, whilst others chose to reflect on how well he did on the night, saying that he deserves more of a run in the first team than he’s currently getting.

Does Douglas Have A Future At Leeds Now?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Now let’s just hope these words don’t come back to haunt us.
