In the first of his new monthly columns for the YEP, BBC children’s presenter and Leeds United fan Ben Shires is filled with the belief that Bielsa has instilled in players and supporters alike.

After all the fanfare of promotion, the joy of winning the league, the sheer relief of returning to football’s top division for the first time in sixteen largely dismal years, the uninitiated could be forgiven for expecting that Leeds United’s initial Premier League matches might fail to live up to the hype.

Opening fixtures are notoriously tricky to judge after all, and early matchups against last year’s runaway champions, followed by the potential banana-skin of a fellow newly promoted side didn’t appear, on paper at least, to offer the most promising of returns. And yet, this is Leeds United, where expectations were long ago replaced by something far more potent; belief.
