Em’s Viking Poetry
In the absence of Pat (legitimate excuse – preparing for a midweek game) and Jermaine (spurious reasoning: the jury’s still out), Matt and Emma welcome a special stand-in guest to chew over the 2-2 draw with Everton and other recent goings on.

March 18, 2021
With the kids beginning to return to school, Jermaine Beckford, Matt Lewis, Emma Jones and Pat Bamford reflect on their own experience in education – Pat’s non-football playing school, Jermaine navigating sometimes vicious street football matches and Matt’s balancing of his studies with a burgeoning career aged just 5.

On 7th March 2020 more than 36,000 fans piled into Elland Road for the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town which continued the march towards promotion to the Premier League. Since then not a single fan has been back in to watch Marcelo Bielsa’s side in person. This week Patrick Bamford, Jermaine Beckford, Emma Jones and Matthew Lewis reflect on that fact as we approach the year mark since the stands fell silent. With more promising times on the horizon and a hopeful return of fans in the coming months, members of the Leeds faithful tell us what they’ve missed most and what they’re most looking forward to, from journeys to the ground to time spent with friends and family and some of the more suspect odours they now long for. Pat gives us an insight into what it’s really like playing in empty stadiums, and the team look forward to the time they can cheer on the Mighty Whites in person. Let us know what you’re most looking forward to using the hashtag #LUFCPod.

Dallas is on the Brut
Pat floats into the recording studio (his house) high on the feeling that comes with scoring against Southampton the night before as Marcelo Bielsa’s men stormed to a 3-0 win. Along Emma, Matt and Jermaine (recording from a random car park in Liverpool - we don’t know either) he breaks down a win that lifted Leeds into the top half of the Premier League. And we also delve into pre-match preparation – the weird traditions players may have, the goings on in the team hotel, why Pat smothers himself in aftershave before each game and more.

It’s been a hectic run of games and Emma, Jermaine, Pat and Matt are here to dissect it all. The guys breakdown the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, a game in which Pat scored the 100th goal of his career (though Becks and Matt are keen to ensure the episode isn’t an entire Pat-praise-fest and analyse his first-half miss too). We hear about Jermaine’s acting debut, Pat drops a language bombshell and Matt’s feeling the effects of his match viewing the night before.
