Well it worked for Cardiff, so why not for Leeds? True Cardiff ditched the blue shirts and went for a much more drastic change of look - trading Everton for Liverpool - but after years in the doldrums, Leeds have decided to freshen things up and go with a new, Persil style, blue whiteness. Change of colour, change of luck, perhaps.
Or maybe it is an attempt to ditch the associations with surrender, a feature of recent seasons.
Anyway, the new kit, with its blue centre stripe, looks cute. Maybe Nice Guy Brian is trying to turn Leeds into Reading in little stages!
