Why do sky think Leeds are never out of the game

Hammered every other game, but they're hammered entertainingly so it's okay.

Would still much rather be in their boat, but they're not even close to the best side to come up.

I genuinely do like Bielsa though, even though he's achieved no more than Steve McClaren.
Seems like he manages in football to make it entertaining above all else.

I like Bielsa as well but I don’t think he willingly concedes all these goals, I bet he is planning a wholesale rebuild of Leeds defence - if they have the money - otherwise it will be a serious relegation battle next season.

The only club who consistently gets praise for letting in 3s and 4s. I simply don't get it.

They are happy to roast other clubs defending. They have a go and it's pretty. I would rather that than Boros absolute none event under Karanka (I'm not sure we ever went kitchen sink)

They are safe. Then again that's down to a pretty premier league. You could relegate the bottom 6 and it would be no worse for it.

There's only West Brom who have conceded more than Leeds, yet the love from SkySports would have you think Leeds were in a title race and the best team since Barcelona of 2008-2012.

They're not too bad going forward, but my goodness, their defending is embarrassing at times.

I can't bear the Leeds lovin
I'm afraid I'm part of it these days. Im a convert. When I see that a Sky game features Leeds I definitely look forward to watching it more. They are entertaining. Yes they concede more, but they are very mobile, and keep on attacking. It's good to watch.

Arsenal v Burnley for example would have been nowhere near as good to watch yesterday as Arsenal v Leeds was. In fact Arsenal v [most teams] wouldn't have been as good to watch.

As for never being out of a game, it's true really. Even at 4-0 down they got two back. Bamford should have had a peno, and after that who knows.

Very entertaining. Well done Leeds (y)(y)

Arsenal had a penalty debatably turned down, hit the post twice and had numerous other good chances, yes leeds could have had 4 but then arsenal could have had 10

Must say I do enjoy watching matches they are involved in as there is always goals. Premier league teams i have enjoyed watching the most this season are Man City, Leeds, Southampton, Villa and Leicester.

I’m in the camp where I think Leeds defending was an embarrassment and the two goals they clawed back just swept some of the damage under the carpet.

And as we all know the two go together, if you commit too many players forward in the hope of scoring you leave big gaps at the back.

I dislike Leeds as much as anyone but from a purely football point of view they are pleasing to watch as their games are not typically boring. I am enjoying watching them which the me of 10 years ago would hate me for saying.

We all knew on here watching Ayling ,Cooper ,Alioski , they are terrible defenders who were bully boy defenders in the Champo, ok when it went their way , moaned like hell & nasty when it did not . Been found out totally against better players in the PL , like stated earlier a major rebuild required of their defence at that level . Think he will be mighty peed off when the required money at that level will not materialise , sides are skint now !!!!

Arsenal absolutely battered Leeds yesterday definitely. The two goals from Leeds were both born out of mistakes, although I was surprised to learn that Arsenal currently have the the second best defensive record in the league behind Man City.

Leeds got a bit more of the ball when Willian came on for Arsenal as that lazy b***r never tracks back 😂

I dislike Leeds. I think its mostly their fans and the thuggish element who always like to portray the childish 'hard man' image. Usually by doing things like setting fire to the waste paper bins at the Riverside, or smashing the toilets. That said, I do admire the way they play their football. It is at an incredible pace, so much stamina, and very exciting to watch. Their games guarantee goals at both ends. Looking at some stats earlier around ground covered in games by premier league teams and they are way above the rest. Whether they can keep up the fast, relentless pace until the end of the season is another matter.

To be fair to Arsenal, the had to play the last 20 minutes or so with 10 men versus 12 after Leeds brought Willian on...
