From a Tottenham Hotspur fan with respect.!
After watching all the episodes in the 2 seasons in just one sitting, I lost my voice but gained a new love: Leeds United. The documentation of the journey was superb. Of mention is the capture of the raw and moving emotions, passion and vulnerability of director of football, Victor Orta and owner Andrea Radrizzani. That gave me a tender sweet feeling for the club and the confidence that the career of and the boys is in good hands. These men are emotionally wrapped up with their club but not at the expense of making rational boardroom decisions.

Marcelo Bielsa. What can I say? Marcelo Bielsa!! His response to his created spygate was an honorable one. More respect to the man.

It is evident this is a UNITED family not just in name but actions. The executive team treats the players and support staff like family. Respect for all is felt in the interactions especially with robust hugs whenever they greet each other. I like that the owner and executive members always greet the players in the tunnel after each match with hug and pat of reassurance. They laugh and smile a lot. That says much about the high team morale.

The players. Oh my creeping christ, the bloody players. They are a joy to watch. They are fierce, skilled, tactical, dedicated, passionate, and most of all HAPPY! There is no doubt from watching all the episodes that they are all-in committed to this journey to "go up" and even win against the big boys.

Kalvin Phillips (with his gram) is definitely one to watch for the future. I do not know his leadership skills, but I see him captaining this team soon. I pray he doesn't leave.

After their valiant 3:4 rendition against defending champions Liverpool, I went searching for their history. This is the team to watch this season. I knew about then in the 70s but...

So based soley on the executive leadership, technical management, dedicated and skilled players, support staff and the ever so voraciously committed fans (Zoe, Luke etc), barring unnecessary injuries of course I would not be surprized if they play for 2nd place in the league and quarter to semifinals in the Champions League. Ok ok ok. Cool your bridges. That may be a tad farfetched, too ambitious perhaps. BUT... So may we agree that with balanced finances and a fit team, Leeds United will not be relegated this season?

March(ing) on together LEEDS UNITED!

Cheers!

Reacquainting with my childhood team - UPDATED July 18,2020
*UPDATE* How about one more episode, Amazon? Tell the story of how the team rallied from the heartbreak of 2019, dealt with the pandemic break, and triumphed as CHAMPIONS!!!!

Since I knew the ending, I wasn't sure I would have the stomach to sit through it all. I am so glad that I did.
Resident in the USA, I hadn't watched Leeds regularly for years until ESPN+ started showing Championship games. Even watching all last season, I didn't feel the same personal connection I felt with the team as a youngster, reading local Leeds papers, listening to games on the radio, hoping they were on Match of the Day or the Sunday afternoon football highlights on Yorkshire Television.
This solved the problem. I know more now about the players, the leadership, and of course Marcelo, and in a well-made documentary that is ultimately, optimistic about the team's future. MOT. ALAW. IBWT.

Great insight spoilt by overscripted football commentary
As a Leeds fan I was really looking forward to this behind the scenes look into the club. It doesn’t disappoint on that and I have a renewed respect for Orta and Kinnear from this series. They care as much as we do. Why then only four stars... well sadly they have added plastic after the event commentary on the actual football pieces. Adam Pope is a great at the moment commentator, but asking him to overdub the action is wrong and frankly cheap. It doesn’t work for those of us who listened live. Next series pay up for the at the timereactions, not studio scripted stuff.

Almost superb!
You definitely don't have to be a Leeds United fan to enjoy this. Gooner checking in to say I enjoyed every minute (and not in a mean way). The videography and editing are just outstanding - head & shoulders above any other footy series I've seen. The series was definitely edited for story arc and tension - the viewer really FEELS it in that title race. My only criticism, and it's minor, is that I wish there could have been even more inside info than there was. I would love, for example, to know what the team talks were like, or what they actually talk about in the board room. Instead we got footage and a voice-over. That transfer fiasco was a nightmare, and that I felt was really well handled. There was a wealth of lovely little detail, such as the obvious warmth and kindness shown by locals to the foreign couple who made their first visit to Elland Road. Footy fans are brilliant, no matter which team you support. Oh - and the end of the season was so Arsenal-like it was painful. :-P Felt that too. Best of luck to Leeds this season! Highly recommend this series.

Glorious LUFC!
I loved everything about this series showing Leeds battling to reach the Premier League after sixteen years in the Championship league. I loved getting to know the major players in the club--the owner, and coach Marcelo Bielsa who seems like a lovely man and the dedicated football players. Best of all,, the fans who are so invested in their club that it becomes part of their life, and don't hesitate to let the club know how they feel in their chants and songs during the game. The fans of course are an integral part of the club because one wouldn't exist without the other and in return, the football club is involved in the community in so many ways. I found the business of football to be really interesting, the amounts of money involved in the buying and selling of players staggering and wish the series would have showed more of the inner workings of the club.

Captivating from start to finish.
As a Leeds fan living in the USA I've only been able to visit Elland Road on two occasions in as many decades, and each time they lost, but being there was the best part. On one trip I walked to Elland Road from Leeds train station and remember seeing people coming out of their houses and walking to the pitch as well until I was surrounded by Leeds fans all walking to Elland Road.

I got that feeling again watching this series, like I was actually there, and then half way through the season even local Leeds fans end up in my situation, watching the second part of the season unfold as if from millions of miles away. Seeing team members waving and smiling from windows, playing in empty stadiums.

It all felt like it was happening on a different planet for every fan now, but little did I know there was a camera crew following Leeds the whole season with an actual documentary in the works about how it all unfolded, and this is it.

An absolute must see for anyone who wants to get their spirits uplifted, whether a soccer fan or not.

A Wonderful Story and Journey!
I am am Man U fan. I felt this was a story not only of the Leeds club but of the city and their attachment through the years to the football club. I felt the pain of this missing out on the Premiership at the end of last season. To the ups and downs of this season, especially with the pandemic hitting when they were starting to be on a roll. Finally them putting everything together and finishing strong and securing a place in the Premiership. Congrats Leeds and may you have many more years in the Premiership!

An American who's knows nothing about football, but loves anything to do with Sports
I've been on a kick watching anything to do with English league football, and this is one of the best I've found. A must watch for anyone who appreciates good sport. I don't know anything about football either, don't know the positions, the strategy, nothing, but this show is simply amazing to see the behind the scenes.
