'Payback time', 'Don't even get on the coach' – Leeds fans excited after official club update
Leeds Under-18s reached their divisional play-offs today with a 3-0 win against Ipswich – and fans are delighted that at least one of their teams is doing okay this season.
The Leeds first-team have had a disaster, with just two wins since new manager Paul Heckingbottom took over from Thomas Christiansen.
The only players to have covered themselves in glory are the Under-23 stars like Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Tom Pearce, and Leeds fans are delighted that the Under-18s are on a roll too.
Goals from Theo Hudson, Nohan Kenneh and Niall Huggins saw Leeds stroll to victory at Thorp Arch, and a win in their final game of the season against Bolton could see them win the league.
One fan proclaimed the team as the “Man City” of the Under-18s and another said he’d love a play-off involving Charlton as it would be “payback” time.
Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans to the heroics from their Under-18s:
