As Reading have discovered, if you take a shot at Leeds United's Twitter admins, you'd best not miss

Copy this linkRead more about sharingIn case you hadn’t noticed, Leeds are doing quite well this season. And whoever’s running their social media accounts is not taking any lip from football Twitter either.

Elland Road has been the home of Leeds United since 1919 and remains one of English footballs great theatres. Delve deeper into the history of our home ground and find out all the information you need for making a visit.

MARCELO BIELSA: EFFICIENCY HAS IMPROVED

Marcelo Bielsa’s mighty whites played Reading on Tuesday and beat them 3-0 to go back to the top of the Championship table.

Its the same collective effort, we have the same willingness for the players to attack and we are faithful to our style, but in the last games we played, we needed fewer chances to score goals.

In advance of the game Leeds' social media bods couldn’t help but notice that their opposition’s team sheet made interesting, er…reading.

They had included “Reading fans” on their team-sheet – but only on the subs bench, which seems inclusive and yet a bit of a snub, no?

The Whites produced a sublime first half performance at the Madejski Stadium, with a brace from Pablo Hernandez and a strike from Mateusz Klich earning the Whites all three points.

Either way, Reading pointed to potential foul-play. In case you haven’t been keeping up with missives, Leeds United were fined £200,000 by the EFL in February over what’s become known as ‘Spygate’ – when a member of Leeds’ staff was discovered surreptitiously watching Derby County train, ahead of an upcoming fixture. It then emerged it wasn't the only time they had done it. They had in fact spied on every team they'd played this season. 

Whether its a ticketing enquiry, a matchday issue or a question for the Elland Road Superstore, find the right department to get in touch with Leeds United.

Reading aren’t the first big name to feel the smarting sting of a Leeds United clap-back this season. Other casualties include: 

I dont think it was an easy game, even if we dominated the game and we could have scored more goals, they had chances to score too.

If they had scored a goal according to the moment they scored this goal, the things that look accessible become complicated.

Leeds were left on hold after a deal for Swansea City’s Daniel James fell through in the January transfer window. Their response, after facing them for the first time since that business? Well, see above.

We played against an opponent that has dangerous offensive players and probably we can say we could neutralise them.

Gary recently suggested Leeds could fall short in their pursuit of promotion this year. Leeds were not slow in reminding him about the last time he wrote them off – before the first game of the season when Gary was still manager of Stoke and the two teams were due to play each other. That result? A 3-1 victory for Leeds, something that would have come as quite a shock given the Potters were the pre-season favourites.

As well as entry to all home league games, 2019/20 Season Ticket Holders will benefit from a whole host of inclusions

After a 2-0 defeat at Elland Road in November, manager Lee Johnson shared his view that the hosts had been "lucky". Leeds’ cryptic response didn’t really take all that much unpacking.

At times, Leeds United have had a reputation for not being universally popular. Well, it seems like the people behind their Twitter account don’t care.

If Leeds United do gain promotion to the Premier League this season, then the big boys better start monitoring their daily sodium intake because judging by what's happened so far, there's likely to be a lot of salt getting dished out. 

Reading are the latest to take aim at Bielsas side after the club appeared to make a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Royals team sheet on Tuesday night.

In case you hadn’t noticed, Leeds are doing quite well this season. And whoever’s running their social media accounts is not taking any lip from football Twitter either.

Marcelo Bielsa’s mighty whites played Reading on Tuesday and beat them 3-0 to go back to the top of the Championship table.

One of the prevailing narratives in the Championship this season came from when Leeds were caught spying on Derby ahead of a crucial league clash.

In advance of the game Leeds' social media bods couldn’t help but notice that their opposition’s team sheet made interesting, er…reading.

At the Madejski, the hosts named Reading fans among their substitutes in a seemingly good-natured gesture to the supporters who had turned out.

They had included “Reading fans” on their team-sheet – but only on the subs bench, which seems inclusive and yet a bit of a snub, no?

And Leeds decided to point that out on their pre-match tweet as team news dropped just under an hour before kick-off.

Either way, Reading pointed to potential foul-play. In case you haven’t been keeping up with missives, Leeds United were fined £200,000 by the EFL in February over what’s become known as ‘Spygate’ – when a member of Leeds’ staff was discovered surreptitiously watching Derby County train, ahead of an upcoming fixture.
