This season is shaping up to be an amazing one for Leeds United. The supporters have been lucky enough to get Marcelo Bielsa in as their new gaffer and after a brilliant 3-1 win over Gary Rowett’s Stoke City on the opening weekend, fans are confident for promotion. The good news keeps coming, though, as the new away kit has been revealed on the Leeds website, and the fans are in love with it.
| The new 2018/19 #LUFC Away Kit was launched earlier today! What do you think of the new strip?

This season has so much promise for the fans. Elland Road can be a fortress again in the Championship and with the style of football that Bielsa plans to use in Yorkshire, it’s hard to see a way that they won’t be near the top of the table come to the end of the season. The only issue some of the fans have is that the squad is thin, but that shouldn’t be an issue for the fans if they rotate well and keep their star players injury-free.
The next nine months of football promise to be spectacular for The Whites, but Bielsa is keen to get it into is players early that they take it one game at a time and see where it takes them. It’s about time the Whites had a crack at promotion after the last couple of seasons. Last year saw the club capitulate after a strong start to the season whilst the year before they missed out on a playoff spot in the last few weeks after being in the top six for most of the campaign. This year, though, with Bielsa and their gorgeous new away kit, things will be different.

It’s amazing, it’s awful, it’s a bus seat, it’s brilliant, it’s 80’s or 90’s, it’s a bit weird, it’s not yellow, it’s I love it, it’s wtf, it’s all the above but above all it’s a Leeds United shirt and if my team is wearing it I’ll love it #lufc

Just from this, it’s clear to see that the supporters are in love with the new strip and will love it even more if they can get a win against Derby in it tomorrow.
