Leeds fans remain nervous despite 11 point gap opening up

Leeds United went 11 points clear of third place on Tuesday evening as they dispatched Hull City in a 2-0 win while Nottingham Forest, Fulham and Bristol City all dropped points.

While going that far clear of dropping out of the automatic promotion places would be reason to celebrate for most fanbases, the Elland Road faithful aren’t your normal set of supporters.

Can you name which season Leeds signed this flop?

It’s been almost 16 years since Leeds were in the top-flight, and for the majority of that time, supporters of the Yorkshire club have seen nothing but misery.

Understandably, a number of fans still carry a pessimistic attitude as they were unwilling to celebrate going so far clear of their rivals.

To be honest, you can’t blame the fanbase for being a bit nervous in this situation as they’ve seen it all too many times before.

Still time to bottle it

The Whites have a reputation for ‘falling apart again’ for a reason, and it’s down to the fact that they’ve been known to bottle these types of situations.

Last season, Leeds famously became the first team in ten years to not go up after being top of the Championship on Christmas day, so you can understand their reluctance to count their chickens.

Another reason why Leeds fans are worried is due to the threat that Fulham pose.

The London club have a tendency to go on great late-season runs as they went 23 games unbeaten during the back end of their last promotion campaign.

Meanwhile, it seems as if Patrick Bamford’s recent comments could explain one Leeds man’s slow start.
