Roy Hodgson loves Leeds?

Jack Harrison open to permanent Elland Road stay

 I want to do everything I can to help them get the Premier League and hopefully I could still be with them next season. We never know what is going to happen but it's hard to describe if you're here every week and you see the fans, you kind of get the sensation and you understand how much it means to them.

Who remembers this?

Everyone can relate to this!

Bielsa was 'offered' Girona job last summer

 According to journalist Tim Rich, Marcelo Bielsa was offered the managerial role at Spanish outift Girona last summer - but choose to stay loyal to Leeds United. 

We all waited in that summer for him to go somewhere else more exotic. I know he was offered a job by the City football group to take charge of Girona, which they own. He’s obviously quite close to Pep Guardiola but he kept on at Leeds but I think that’s a tremendous tribute to Leeds United.

New resumption date reported

 A video conference of all 20 Premier League clubs is due to take place this Friday in order to discuss and outline a tentative schedule for the resumption of the league in the coming weeks. But sources have told ESPN that the EFL, which includes the Championship, League One and League Two, is working towards games being played from June 6 onwards after an initial three-week mini pre-season starting on May 16.
