If there’s one thing we know about Leeds United fans, it’s that they absolutely love their club.
Even in the Championship, Elland Road has not been a happy hunting ground for many second division clubs and that was due to the atmosphere stirred up by the home fans.
But even when it comes to U23 games, the Leeds fans are great.
The Whites announced via their official Twitter account that 18,000 tickets have been sold for a Premier League 2 clash with Manchester City later in the evening.
Lewis Bate, who joined Leeds academy from Chelsea last summer, has been a omnipresent figure in the Under-23 squad this season.
Here’s how the 19-year-old responded to last night’s news on Twitter:
Yes, class is certainly the best word when it comes to describing Leeds supporters.
To contextualize their support, over half of Elland Road will be packed and if we’re talking about games for non-seniors, that’s certainly special.
Even better, the fan base is inadvertently giving the white stars of tomorrow the boost they need to make the leap from reserve football to the senior side.
It gives the youngsters a taste of senior football and they will always want more.
