Leeds fans have been reacting in a triumphant manner after a full list of injuries suffered by their players was published by the Yorkshire Evening Post on Tuesday morning.
The list came after it was announced that Barry Douglas would miss the rest of the season due to injury, making Leeds fans reflect on their bad fortune in the medical department this campaign.
Leeds have had a staggering 31 injuries totalling in a combined 165 games missed between all players. Yet somehow they still remain second in the Championship.
Leeds fans have reacted in a defiant manner expressing pride in the fact that the team has managed to maintain such a strong league position despite missing key players throughout the campaign.
Marcelo Bielsa has certainly spread optimism throughout the fanbase as fans were able to make light of their misfortune taking solace in the fact they have been able to be promotion contenders even with a packed treatment room.
Here’s what Leeds fans had to say on Twitter…
and yet we’re still 2nd ?

Shows how good we are doesn’t it. Essentially the same squad that finished 13th last season. Bielsa and his staff have worked miracles simple as that
