Root and Bairstow show Leeds United the way

What a great day to be a Yorkshireman! It's a real shame that Bairstow couldn't follow young Root's lead by claiming a century of his own, but their partnership was a joy to watch and proved that old adage, "If they're good enough, they're old enough."

With Nice Guy Brian looking to sign upwards of seven players, he must not overlook the kids in the Academy and the young players already in the first team squad. Maybe, just maybe, a new era could be built on youth, with Byram, Poleon, Hall and other young guns coming through under the guidance of Anthea Redfearn.

It must be good news for the youngsters that Anthea has been promoted by McDermott. Poleon got his chance against Watford and didn't let anybody down. Maybe he and Hall could inject the pace that Leeds lacked all last season.

But back to the cricketers, Root proved today that he is a real class act who promises to be a mainstay of England's batting for the next 15 years. Congratulations to the kid and to the people of Yorkshire for continuing to produce cricketing greats.

    1. That has to be the worst taste comment yet. What a disgraceful human being you are. That man was a hero, he went to war for our country (albeit I disagree with that war) and deserves our 100% respect. Hang your head in shame. Hopefully other Leeds fans will disassociate themselves from that sick comment.

    3. Unlucky HF...the guy said nothing wrong.... he merely asked you to play in the road in Woolwich, he mentioned no more than that, but you disgracefully decided to link it with a recent tragedy there...... you are utterly a digrace to mankind, it's a good job you live in a country of thieves, it's where you belong.

    Hall was bought in by Warnock so has not been coming through due to Redfearns guidance

    1. Where do I say Hall was from the Academy. He was bought from Southend for £275,000 in January (with future add ons) having been on loan before. He is young though.

  14. C'mon guys, take a serious look at yourselves. The man's only having a bit of harmless fun. If you wanna get angry about summat then how about starting with corporate greed, incompetent and uncaring politicians, fat cats and social inequality. Mot.

  15. RIP Don Revie, a true great. Just reading through his list of achievements again back when football was competitive. Really deserves to be up there with the best of them.

    The real reason behind this blog.
