I’m still not 100% sure what makes a club a ‘big club’.

But if you want to dictate it by how many fans they take to even the smallest of events, then last night’s game at Old Trafford would be a pretty good indicator as to how big Leeds are.

The U18 side’s FA Youth Cup campaign came to an end last night as they fell 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford, but you could make the argument that the big story of the night didn’t happen on the pitch, but rather in the stands.

1,400 fans turned up to support the young lads last night, and they made quite the impression it has to be said as their presence was plastered all over social media.

And when the footage of the fans made its way round to the supporters who didn’t make the trip across the Pennines, they were more than happy to jump on the bandwagon and throw their support behind the fans who did, with many of them agreeing that it was indeed a great indicator of just how big the club is.

How many of these young players will make their first-team debut by 2022?

Less than 5

Less than 5

5 or more

5 or more

When you have fans of other teams pointing out how good it is, I think you’re onto something.
