Would Grayson favourite make the class of 2018/19? Polled Leeds supporters are divided



Leeds United are looking impressive under Marcelo Bielsa, with the Whites winning their opening two fixtures of the new Sky Bet Championship season.

Bielsa’s impact has been evident, with a squad made up of last season’s players, playing in a completely different style, with their attacking approach already applauded by many.

The Elland Road crowd hasn’t been treated to this quality of football in a very long time, with Simon Grayson perhaps the last Leeds manager to have his side playing in such an attacking style.

One man who was key under Grayson was Max Gradel, with the Ivorian winger helping Leeds to promotion from League One, before having a huge impact in the Championship, as Leeds went in search of play-off football during the 2010/11 campaign.

That season, Gradel, 30, scored 18 league goals, as the Whites finished seventh under Grayson.

Here at FLW, we wanted to know if Leeds’ supporters believe Gradel would be able to break into Leeds’ current starting XI.

Our poll on Twitter had Leeds’ supporters divided, with 51% of voters believing that the Ivorian would be selected amongst Leeds’ current crop.

The remaining 49% weren’t convinced despite Gradel’s heroics during his time at Leeds, with that percentage not believing he would be selected over Ezgjan Alioski and Pablo Hernandez.
