After a memorable cup night at Elland Road, Whites fans give their verdicts on the penalty shootout victory over Norwich City.
I spent 50 minutes at the congested East Stand ticket office last night, getting in late by 12 minutes, just in time to see Norwich score!
The United team showed lots of endeavour, played with big hearts. The second half was great to see them all working hard for the famous Leeds shirt.
Poor Lewie Coyle going off injured gave Norwich the advantage, but the lads fought back from 2-1 down, showed great drive and equalised from a great run from Hadi Sacko with Chris Wood in the right place to mop up the scraps from a parry.
Then came the fantastic performance from Marco Silvestri and some great penalties. The last taken by a very young man in Ronaldo Vieira with an old head on his shoulders, calmly placing it in the net, well done lad.
A brilliant night enjoyed by a great crowd, the best fighting, never-give-up performance for many a long year.
Well done to every player in the white shirt for sure we’re in a very good place with Garry Monk as our head coach.

Well, I said I hoped Garry Monk gives some other players a run to show they are part of it all! And boy did they show what faith Monk has in them and how they have bought into his methods.
Another game which showed this team are heading in the right direction under Monk. They have showed promise for a few games now, they might not all be world beaters, but boy do they work their socks off.
What a night, we will also have downs, but we are making great progress. I’ve not seen anything like last night for many a year!

A great game and a great result.
A spirted performance last night. Credit to the players. It was great to have Gaetano Berardi back, Marco Silvestri was excellent in goal, and is now banging on the door.
Also having young Ronaldo Vieira playing as he did, shows we do have a little strength in depth and to top it all, a goal from Marcus Antonsson.
We have always been concerned about selling and losing good players. But I do think they should be more concerned about losing Garry Monk and staff. I know it’s early doors and you should never blow your own trumpet but the loss of them, would be worse than selling the players we have done recently and might do in the future (Charlie Taylor). See what things are like January and begin negotiations with them, if we don’t they will be gone!
We do need stability as everyone knows and we’ve got good coaching staff to start that with.
