Leeds United fans were left agreeing with a fellow supporter about a key moment in their Championship season this campaign.
The idea was raised by Twitter user Andy P, that the red card Kalvin Phillips got against Queens Park Rangers could be ‘worth it’ for the club by the end of the season. However, he isn’t the only person who seems to think the sending off was a good thing for the outfit with The Athletic’s Phil Hay also believing the offence against the west London outfit did Phillips ‘the world of good’ as it gave him an ‘enforced break’.
One fan called the fan’s tweet a ‘positive spin’.
Love a positive spin!!! 👏👏👏👏. It was worth it!

He has earnt rave reviews for his performances since his return to the side with former Whites striker Jermaine Beckford claiming the club were missing him after his comeback against Brentford (Sky Sports via HITC). Meanwhile, another former player, Noel Whelan, lauded the £9.9m-rated, as per Transfermarkt, 24-year-old for his display against Bristol City (via BBC).
Fans were in agreement with one of their own over the moment including the Yorkshire-born ace. Here are some of the reactions:
Seems to have done him the world of good somehow

Perceptive. I was at Brentford. The way him, Bill and Coops went abut their business was a credit to themselves. Those three showed the way forward; “all I have is the ground I stand on, if you want it, you’ll have to take it”. We’re back.
