Leeds fans on reddit are praising our academy due to Gelhardts performances this season, even though he joined from Wigan 18 months ago :tearsofjoy:

Interesting to see Angel get a run for Lille the other night(had forgotten about him), hasn't really come on as expected.

Still a pup at 21. Best thing he can do is continue to get regular first team football. He has the talent.

Big game with Everton vs Chelsea coming up, if they lose the much lauded Chelsea academy will be pretty much relegated to PL2 Div 2.
I see we lost.

PL2 is a weird one as our academy kids in that age group are already playing first team football either at Chelsea or some where else in the league. There'd be over a dozen or so gone what's left is just the dredges pretty much running down there contract(for us anyway).

16,000 tickets sold to Leeds vs Man City, looks like the PL2 attendance record is likely getting broken.

Great experience for our kids to play in front of a great crowd for that level (20k plus by all accounts). And great for us to win the league back to back.

I forgot Kayky is a lad from the Manchester Streets.
Beswick common. Stones throw from the academy training ground.

One day they'll change the rules so academy teams can play someone born more than a bees dick from the training ground.

Jan Paul van Hecke was named as Blackburn Rovers’ player of the year for 2021/22 and in doing so became the first loanee to win the award.

The Dutchman was crowned the winner ahead of Rovers’ final home game of the season against Bournemouth.

The 21-year-old has started 25 consecutive matches and become a mainstay of the Rovers side since joining from Brighton & Hove Albion on loan.

Leeds unlucky that Chelsea had to put first team players in a youth fixture to avoid relegation. 🤡
