An outstanding first season back in the top flight saw Leeds dubbed the entertains, prove pundits wrong and finish ninth as Bielsa’s burnout boys shocked the league to finish in the top half of the table. Well, that was my view. But how did social media see Leeds United’s first season back in the top flight?
Many Leeds fans were left emotional following the departure of Pablo Hernandez after a brilliant Leeds United career.

Another story coming out of the final day at Elland Road was Patrick Bamford’s 17th league goal this season. The English striker has certainly proven his doubters wrong this year.
@Patrick_Bamford ramming his critics' words down their throat.
If he doesn't go to the Euros, it's a scandal. 17 goals 👏👏👏

Some even felt he should be taken to the Euros.
How is @Patrick_Bamford being in the @England squad 🏴 for #EURO2020 even still a debate? Second top English goal scorer in the Premier League (17) and at a newly promoted team. I seriously don't understand why he wouldn't be included. #LUFC

The victory saw Leeds finish above Everton – a side tipped by some to finish in the top four this season.
We finished above Everton 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

There was some bad news for the Whites with the injury to star player Kalvin Phillips.

Having finished the season in fine form, Leeds fans took to praising Marcelo Bielsa once again and reminded everyone just how wrong they were about United’s prospects this season.

Bielsa's football won't work in the PL.
They'll burn out.
They're too naive.
Ok, well they've reached their ceiling.
Oh but Wolves and Sheff Utd.
More points, more wins, more goals. What a year. Bring on next season. #lufc

Promoted because of Covid…
They'll burn out like they always do… (we dont btw)…
Bielsas over rated… (hes not)
Proving doubters wrong all season. BIELSA IS GOD. MOT

Ultimately, it was a great campaign for Leeds United. But what did you make of it and what will come for Leeds next season?
