What station was that documentary on?  Heard it being discussed on the radio.

Amazon Prime, I think.

You can get a one month trial for free as long as you remember to cancel it within the deadline. It is beautifully filmed and very atmospheric, and, while it should really have been shorter, the six episodes fly by. While Russell Crowe's script is a little cliched, it also has its iconic moments and you are left with the sense of a club which is more determined than ever to get back to the Premiership. A huge game awaits on Saturday against Swansea, who have matched the start by Leeds and are only one behind on goal difference.

There is another great leeds documentary on Amazon prime called "do you want to win?" its about the 90 promotion and 92 champions team. Very very good watch.

Good win at Barnsley at the weekend. Derby at home on Saturday.

Leeds United and their manager, Marcelo Bielsa, have won the 2019 Fifa Fair Play Award at the governing body’s annual award ceremony in Milan.

The Championship side won the award after Bielsa ordered his team to let Aston Villa score an equaliser at Elland Road in April. Mateusz Klich had put Leeds ahead while Villa forward Jonathan Kodjia was down with an injury.

Klich’s goal led to a melee between both sets of players, with Anwar El Ghazi sent off for the visitors. When play restarted, Albert Adomah was allowed to run through and level the game – although defender Pontus Jansson still tried and failed to tackle the Villa winger....
