The contenders for the Louis Erard Moment of the Month for November are:
Back-to-back home wins
Following a disappointing evening at West Brom, Bielsa’s boys showed true character to bounce back with two home wins in a week. First-up they beat ten men Bristol City 2-0 with goals from Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez before a Stuart Dallas goal and a Bailey Peacock-Farrell penalty save sealed victory against Paul Clements Reading – both in front of the Elland Road faithful.
Bailey to the rescue
1-0 up against Reading, man of the match Barry Douglas’s marginally miss timed tackle gives away a last gasp penalty and The Royals a chance to leave Elland Road with a point... until home-grown keeper Bailey Peacock Farrell dives to his right to push Mark McNulty’s penalty past the post. A huge moment for the Northern Ireland international who went on to keep his place and a clean sheet in the win against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Izzy Brown back in action
Summer window signing Izzy Brown had many potential suitors in the Premier League and Championship when he joined the club. An injury sustained last season forced the talented attacking midfielder to have an eye on making an impact in the New Year. Brown delighted his team mates and Leeds supporters by making his comeback a little earlier than expected though, featuring twice for our Under-23 side during November. Brown is now set to make his first-team debut in the coming weeks and could prove an important part of the squad as our promotion push continues.
Perth and Sydney games announced
A summer tour down under was announced during November with The Whites set to take on Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United in Perth before heading over to Sydney to face the Western Sydney Wanderers. The games have been met with huge delight by Leeds fans, with thousands already purchasing tickets to the game against our Lancashire rivals.
Get Well Soon, Jamal
Sadly keeper Jamal Blackman was seriously injured playing for the Under 23-side during November meaning the popular stopper had to end his stay at the club and return to Chelsea. This prompted Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips and goalscorer Kemar Roofe to race to the bench after scoring the opening goal against Bristol City to reveal a goalkeeper shirt with ‘Get Well Soon Jamal’ printed on the back in front of the North Stand. Together.
Our home game with Bristol City was also the clubs chosen fixture for the annual Rainbow Laces Campaign. In support captain Liam Cooper wore a rainbow armband, rainbow corner flags were displayed on the pitch and various members of our supporter group Marching Out Together and their family members created a guard of honour as the players entered the field – all to show our deep support to the LGBT+ community. This is just the latest in various activities Leeds United have engaged in over recent years to ensure that all supporters feel welcome at Elland Road and a part of our family.
Leeds United Ladies seal Cup victory
The Leeds United Ladies side are enjoying a solid season so far and furthermore November saw the side progress to the second round of the FA Cup with a victory against a strong Brighouse Town side. Hannah Campbell’s strike seven minutes from time was enough to send them through, setting up a thrilling tie with Doncaster Rovers Belles this weekend which ended in a 4-3 win after added time.
