Fixtures for the 2019/20 Championship season were released at 9am this morning, with Leeds fans providing great reactions, as usual.
Starting with an away trip to Bristol City on 4th August, live on Sky Sports (obviously), Leeds are away in the Midlands over the new year with trips to Birmingham on 29th December and West Brom on New Years Day, ending the season at home to Lee Bowyer’s Charlton Athletic on 2nd May.
So with all this in mind, lets see how the superb Leeds United fans reacted to the fixtures, here’s what they had to say on Leeds United’s Twitter page.
Don't mean to get carried away but I don't see how we lose any of these games

Our last home game in the premier league was against Charlton, it will also be our last home game in the Championship. MOT

I really do see 46 Leeds wins when I look at those fixtures. The short break has restored my blind optimism.

Safe to say the boys and girls at Elland Road are a tad excited for the new campaign, with fear, confidence, pride, anxiety, joy, frustration and anger all exuding from the comments, it makes for an entertaining read.
That enthusiasm is understandable, especially after last season where the Whites rebounded from a disappointing campaign the previous time out under the guidance of Thomas Christiansen and Paul Heckingbottom.
It was a glorious season for the Whites fans, fans who’d grown accustomed to mediocrity under the majority of previous regimes at the club. Yet, with legendary coach Marcelo Bielsa at the helm, it was a juggernaut turned about face and pointed in the right direction for Leeds United’s voracious fans.
There’d been many counting down the days to this fixture release, now they have it and the enthusiasm is brimming to full. Next steps are the commencement of pre-season training and hopefully some new faces coming through the door.
