Re: Arsenal vs Leeds

Leeds haven't come undone, I like the way they’re playing. Good young technical players who are holding their own. Keeper looks a great find, Phillips is a class above everyone, and they’ve just brought on a young kid who’s signed from Forest Green Rovers. Lots to like about Dirty Leeds.

Don't ask the actual tough logistical questions. Just stand there shouting 'Oh Burn-eh-ley, is Won-Der-Ful' and If the club can't turn that into a global "market" then they're clearly idiots.
