It has been an interesting decade for Leeds but supporters and the current ownership should feel overjoyed with the progress that has been made and the fact they are now in a much better position than in 2010.
The Whites were still in League One at the beginning of the decade but they ended their first year of it as promotion winners, so it would be fitting if they could do the same in the 2020s.
Marcelo Bielsa has placed them in a great position to do so, and though there are now several top performers in the current set-up, Pablo Hernandez is being singled out by fans for a special reason.

The Spaniard has been at the club since 2017 and in that time he has been named Player of the Year on two out of two occasions, with some believing that his consistent performances mean he has been the best player for the club this decade.
Pablo, head and shoulders the best quality player we have had, we are so fortunate he plays for Leeds

Pablo, always consistent, always has heart, he’s one of the oldest on the team and I’ve never seen him lose quality

Pablos been the best player we’ve had since leaving the prem. moment of the decade would have to go to beckford at the Stretford end tho

Pablo, he magic, and makes the hardest things look easy.
Also arguably the best player in the best team we’ve had this decade.
A different option is Dallas, plays everywhere, and plays well, never questions it and just gets on with it.
Great player on great team.
And been with

The playmaker has undoubtedly been a crucial part of Leeds’ recent success, and the fact he has maintained such high standards despite now being 34 highlights the quality he has.
If he spurs the Whites on to promotion he could cement a lasting legacy at the club, and it would be exactly what he deserves after contributing 30 goals and 34 assists thus far.
A true test for any Leeds fan: Can you match these iconic images with the right results?
As mentioned, there have been ups and downs for the club this year. However, the club has always seemed to enjoy prolific goalscorers, from Chris Wood to Luciano Becchio, as well as Ross McCormack and Jermaine Beckford, whose goals helped Leeds up from the third-tier in 2010.
Fans have also taken the time to praise some of them for their contribution, with suggestions that they should also be considered for the player of the decade.
Jermaine Beckford. He is the most iconic player we have had this decade easily, involved in the most important moments in the clubs history in the last 10 years. Man U away, Bristol at home, captain for promotion, tons of goals, Leeds through and through. Can’t be anyone else

McCormack made it exciting when it was bad

Dark horse could be McCormack, without him we could be in League One right now, almost certainly would have been relegated without his goals
