Ex-Leeds and Boro man offers thoughts on former clubs



Middlesbrough and Leeds are the pacesetters in the Championship at this early stage, with the two clubs recording 2-0 victories yesterday.

The Whites ensured they remain the only side in the league with a 100% record when they beat Rotherham at Elland Road yesterday.

Meanwhile, Boro have played one more game than Leeds and top the table after securing an impressive victory at Bristol City.

It means Tony Pulis and Marcelo Bielsa will be delighted with the early-season form of their sides, with the two managers differing in how they approach the game.

Pulis has his side playing a direct style, built on a solid defence, whilst Bielsa encourages a high-tempo, attacking game.

And, former England international Danny Mills, who played for both these sides, commented on the contrast between the sides.

Leeds Live report how he was also in no doubt about which team he would rather have played for when speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live.

Leeds, no doubt. They (Leeds) remind me of the side I played in although we were a little dirtier.”

The Verdict

You can’t really argue with what Mills says here, there’s no doubt that Leeds are playing great football under Bielsa.

They look to control possession, attack in numbers and are very stylish. All players would love to play in this environment.

However, football is about winning games and Pulis has shown that there are different ways to play to get results and it’s part of what makes the Championship such an exciting league to watch.
