There have been highs and lows for Leeds United fans across the 2018/19 Championship campaign, and there were also significant highs and lows for a few players, with Northern Ireland international Stuart Dallas significantly featuring when it came to the usual scapegoating as tempers frayed and frustrations came out.
The 28-year-old played a big role in the side and was called on by manager Marcelo Bielsa 13 times from the start of games, and he also made 16 substitute showings. Having contributed four goals across the season his starting appearances saw him plug gaps in seven different positions on the pitch as we dealt with massive injury problems across the year.
Left back, right back, central midfield, midfield left, defensive midfield right, forward left, and forward right and with so much criticism going his way, his efforts in the Play-Off battles were certainly applauded and this week as people reflected on his overall contribution he came in for even more praise.
Showed he has what it takes for big games in playoffs…..was awesome. And he is a top bloke pic.twitter.com/7mv0mpSIJU

Every team needs a Dallas in their side. Bit like James Milner. Gives 100% and can play in several positions

I know he as his critics but for me a top player and injury free you will see his true potential.
