Lazy journalism: Leeds fans shoot down John Cross’ criticisms

Leeds fans have bashed John Cross’ article in The Mirror after he labelled the club’s season a ‘glorious failure’ should they fail in their quest for promotion.

Cross criticised Marcelo Bielsa in his piece saying that the board’s choice to spend big on a manager rather than the playing squad may prove to be a costly mistake.

Fans took issue with The Mirror journalist’s synopsis that the season would be a failure if they don’t go up again.

The Whites have already secured a play-off spot just one year after finishing 13th in the Championship, which proves that huge progress has been made.
