Remember Bros? You know, that more talented version of Jedward plus a bloke called Craig? One of their ditties was called ‘Cat Amongst the Pigeons’. It wasn’t up to much, not going to lie to you there. But that title pretty much sums up the effect achieved by this tweet…

…which links to this article.

It doesn’t take much to get Leeds United fans acting all fluttery when something such as this happens. As soon as Leeds United fans noticed that Rodrigo de Paul wasn’t in the Udinese squad…cat firmly in amongst the pigeons and everything a-flutter.

It’s understandable. De Paul is the type of player who would slot into Leeds United’s midfield engine room with consummate ease. His high-energy, all-action style is made for the type of football Bielsa has his team playing.

There’s no news of any niggle coming out of Udinese regarding De Paul whose absence from the lineup tonight is somewhat puzzling. This is the type of game that you would expect him to get some measure of game time with the new Serie A season just around the corner.

As it was, he didn’t. He wasn’t even in the squad, let alone the starting XI.

For some Leeds United fans, that can only mean one thing – announce Rodrigo de Paul.
