Leeds fans on Twitter were in ecstasy after incredible late scenes

Leeds fans on Twitter were in ecstasy after incredible late scenes

Being a Leeds fan at the moment could not be more enjoyable. Not only have the Whites won their last seven games on the spin, but they’ve also come from behind in their last two, giving their fans a Christmas rollercoaster to keep their spirits high, and yesterday could not have been more enjoyable.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side found themselves 2-1 down after Charlie Mulgrew scored for Blackburn in the 90th minute. However, a lot of the fans somehow still believed that they’d be getting all three points, and Kemar Roofe completed the most unlikely of turnarounds when he scored in the 91st and 94th minutes to give the home side one of the most memorable victories that they’ll likely ever have.

Leeds fans watching on at home would have been fuming to see their side go 2-1 down, but it’s never over until the final whistle, and Bielsa’s side proved their never say die attitude yet again. It seems mental to think that this Leeds side is mostly the same one that faltered to a 13th place finish last season, and that makes the current form of the Whites even more impressive, as it’s just Bielsa’s brilliance squeezing every last drop of talent from the team.

The Whites are desperate for their side to stop giving them heart attacks, but whilst they’re winning games they really can’t be complaining.
