The new twitter account created for the website has slowly taken shape over the last few days and nearly 600 Leeds fans have taken the vote on who is their number one choice in the most competitive position on the park, the wings. Running away with the vote Kemar Roofe with a staggering 44% of the votes.

The votes will be coming into focus more than ever in the coming months as the Player Of The Year awards begin to take shape. It’s very hard to pick stand out players this season and the vote will certainly be interesting to see the outcome. This vote was much more straightforward and Leeds fans backed two clear winners but one was way out in front.

Who is your first choice winger at Leeds?

Winner – Kemar Roofe – 44%

Roofe has had ups and downs in his first season at Leeds United but one thing we can say for sure is that he has certainly fitted in with Garry Monk and his plans. He is lively and has great movement as well as being brave, running at players and on his day the opposition can’t cope. He will need to add goals to his game, that is a fact and he has time to do that. He will only improve withy games and working with Garry Monk.

Second Place – Hadi Sacko – 26%

Sacko divides opinion. There is a twitter account named “Indecisive Sacko” and it does read true to an extent. Sacko has all the attributes to make him a top player but fails almost every time with the same one, decision making. He adds an outlet to the side that shouldn’t be underestimated and he works very hard but with a final ball he would do some serious damage. With a decent chunk of the votes he comes in at second place. He is up against Sheffield Wednesday left back Pudil tomorrow, a player who simply couldn’t cope with Sacko earlier this season.

Third Place – Stuart Dallas – 21%

Stuart Dallas was our most effective player last season and was the go to guy when it came to making things happen. After impressing at the Euro Championships he has struggled this season, only recently making an impact, scoring goals at Blackburn and Ipswich. He doesn’t seem to have the same influence on the side and that reflects in the votes. His pace was always a stumbling block but it wasn’t so obvious. With the likes of Sacko and Roofe coming into the side his pace has been exposed but he has to solve that problem by playing to his strengths.

Other – Doukara, Pedraza and Barrow – 9%

The other three options didn’t get much backing, 3% of the votes each as the others took centre stage. Doukara has played his part this season but the other two have struggled to settle with very little game time since their arrival in the January window. Who will start tomorrow is firmly in the hand of Garry Monk.


About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
