What has he club said about it?

Angus Kinnear, Leeds's managing director, said he hopes the documentary will show people how special the club is.

He told the YEP this week: "I think anyone who is not a Leeds fan who watches it will realise there's something special about this club and anyone who is a Leeds fan and watches it should have a sense of optimism and confidence for the future when they know quite how hard everyone is working behind the scenes to deliver the success we think this club deserves.

"That was our objective, to give supporters and people interested in sport an insight into how the club runs and why we think it's special.

"Whilst we would have loved to have scripted a different ending, we still think it achieves our mission objective."
