It’s been a better week for the club in 2018 this time around – though we have of course not had it completely perfect.
Indeed, it wouldn’t be Leeds if we didn’t temper good news with bad and so, naturally, we preceeded the Pablo Hernandez contract deal with the idea that we’re off to Myanmar – of course.
Whilst we wait to see if that actually goes ahead, though, let’s focus on the Spaniard signing his next couple of years up to stay with us and the positivity that’s surrounded that.
For sure, it’s probably the brightest bit of news we’ve had in months and, with this from LUFC DATA on Twitter in mind, it’s small wonder so many of us are so happy about it:

One of my favourite players at the club in recent years, these stats just show how important he has been to us.
Indeed, if we’d lost him it would have been a real kick in the teeth so, credit where it is due, fair play Leeds for getting this one over the line.
