I suppose Leeds fans deserve some sort of credit for being diplomatic about the whole thing.
Although you wonder how Luke Ayling feels about the whole thing. He’s had his big moment taken away by people who are busy looking in the other direction.
The Leeds defender was named in the EFL Team of the Week on Monday, helped I’m sure in a huge part by his performance in attack as well as in defence. And whilst there were a number of fans who were happy to see him pick up the honour, it seemed as though the majority of Leeds fans had other things on their mind, as they were more concerned with who didn’t make the team rather than who did.
There were some who felt that his teammate Kalvin Phillips deserved to be given the same honour, and even more shockingly, that Bristol City goalkeeper Daniel Bentley didn’t get anything for his part in the proceedings as he made five saves to keep the home side at bay.
Think the Bristol City Keeper should’ve been in there too, he kept them in the game

Not sure how the Bristol keeper didn’t get in that team.

Fair,how KP isnt in is beyond me though…..he absolutely dominated the game

How Phillips isn’t in there is beyond me. Pinpoint passes in those conditions, his game has moved up another level since the ban.

Phillips not there is an actual travesty, what on earth

Does Ayling deserve to be our full-time captain?
Yes, he's proven himself
No, it's still Cooper's
As I said, it’s good to keep things diplomatic, but let’s not take away from the man of the hour, let him have his moment. So kudos to you Mr Ayling.
