I was disappointed Tomori and Guehi were but then this guy has come from the clouds and is outperforming both of them. Well deserved new contract and our academy producing another gem.

* me our academy kids are good. Not just filling the squad but winning us games on the biggest stage.

Home grown is the best.

Much needed win for Leeds over Liverpool today, we were finally able to play a few of the younger guys in the u/23's, given they have all been required for the first team bench for the last few months.

8,600 at Elland Road for the game as well. 👏

PL2 Div 1 Table is in an interesting spot atm, with Chelsea currently in the relegation spots.

United are through to the final of the FA Youth Cup and will face either Chelsea or Nottingham Forest. Decent crop coming through at the moment. Just need a manager who will commit to playing a few of them in the first team.

Just turned 16 a few days ago, from the great Leeds/Gray dynasty. Frank is his grandfather.

10,000 at the u/23 game also...

Won't be long until we see him with a Leeds debut, he's been on the first team bench a number of times and captains the England underage sides.

The wraps are off the scale on his younger brother Harry, with him being mentioned on PL telecasts (even at this point) as a generational English prospect. Going to see him come through the English u/18 system very shortly, so will be interesting to see how he goes as a 14/15 year old. Stories of him knocking in 10-15 goals a game in the English underage comps are pretty regular. I believe he scored 8 on the weekend in the u/16 comp.

17 years old. Must be pretty rare for a player to get called up for a top mens national team before making their senior club debut.

Needs to be in the first team squad next season. He's really developed his allround his game this season.
