'Frauds', 'Quality not quantity' - Leeds fans react to Andrea Radrizzani Twitter message
Leeds United U18s are the Premier Development League North champions after beating Bolton Wanderers 1-0 to claim the title.
A Kun Temenuzhkov effort in the first half was enough to take maximum points from the match and confirm the championship as theirs.
The only blot on the day was the red card to forward Ryan Edmondson.
After the victory, club owner Andrea Radrizzani took to his Twitter account to congratulate the youth team and wrote, “Congratulations Well done! Great team spirit. Enjoy and keep working hard…more trophies are waiting for you boys.”

Supporters of the club weren’t about to let the opportunity to communicate with the Elland Road supremo pass without delivering their sentiments on the progress the first team is making in comparison to the youngsters.
There has been a lot talk about the excellence of the Leeds youth team and fans are keen to see more of the club’s up and coming talents of the U23s.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Paudio O’Connor and Tom Pearce are the latest three to have made the step up to the senior side but there could be more.
Leeds’ season has fallen away since Boxing Day to a point where they have won just twice since the festive period – a fact that supporters are massively unhappy about and want to see changes at their club.
Here is what the Whites faithful had to say in response to their owner’s Twitter message:
Academy has improved, let's do the same with the first team now! #lufc

Can’t say the same about 1st team hope your working hard to replace Orta – this is what the fans want unless we are facing a relegation battle next season – No idea how buying Cypriot league players will ever be good enough for the league we are in #luff
