Leeds United back in the Premier League

After the highs and lows of 16 years in the lower divisions, we’re absolutely overjoyed to see Leeds
United promoted back to the Premier League where they belong.

They did it in style to exorcise the demons of last season’s fall from grace, where they crashed out of
the automatic promotion places and suffered play-off heartache.  This time around Bielsa’s young
team put together six straight wins to see them crowned champions by ten points.

Leeds thoroughly deserved the title

In a season where the Whites have celebrated their centenary, lost one of their greatest servants in
Jack Charlton, and the small matter of a worldwide pandemic, it’s clear that this team is thoroughly
deserving of its crown.

They’ve played exactly like a Marcello Bielsa side: pressing high and strangling the life out of teams,
but with a quality and incisiveness on the ball that’s made them a pleasure to watch for fans and
neutrals alike.

The Championship is notoriously hard on players, with games every three days for most of the
season, and at least ten teams with genuine aspirations for the automatic promotion spots at the
start of the season. Despite this, and how hard West Brom pushed them, Leeds United stuck to their
principles and won the division the right way.

How will Leeds fair in the Premier League?

The big question is whether Leeds’ return to the big time will be a short-lived stay or the beginning
of a new era? With owner Andrea Radrizzani openly talking about further investment or even a
takeover of the club, it’s possible that Bielsa will have plenty of money to spend to reinforce his
squad.

One thing’s for sure, Leeds have a world-class manager who knows how to deal with superstar
players and get them playing in a manner suited to the most exciting league in the world. We’re sure
that the club will be looking at this as the first step in a journey back into the Champion’s League and
silverware.

The team at Trafalgar Street car park are all big Whites fans, and we can’t wait to see where this
adventure takes us – we’re already looking forward to reviving old Northern rivalries with the likes of
Liverpool and Man United (especially now we know that we begin our campaign at Anfield!).

Whatever happens in the future, we’d like to thank everyone at the club for making the 19-20
season one to remember, and wish Leeds United the very best of luck in the Premier League next
season.
