However, judging the fans’ reactions, the 10,000 people didn’t include many of the Elland Road faithful.
They reacted with a mixture of horror and amusement to the new badge on Twitter.

It’s atrocious. All that ‘research’ and that’s the best you can come up with?! It looks like something from Pro Evolution Soccer in the early 2000s. Awful!!
