LUFC Season review August
Magnificent seven for Grayson`s men
With the new season just under ten weeks away I thought it was about time that we worked our way through the rollercoaster ride that was the 2009/10 season.
We will start with August when Leeds hit the ground running making a 100% start to the campaign.
Leeds started the month with an impressive win at Burnley who were getting themselves ready for the Premiership. Goals from Mike Grella and Andy Robinson earned Leeds a 2-1 victory.
After many rumours throughout the summer, young midfielder Fabian Delph joins Premiership side Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee.
Leeds sign midfielder Mike Doyle from Coventry City on a season long loan on the eve of the new season.
Jermaine Beckford starts the season in fine fashion with both goals as Leeds overcome a dogged Exeter City side at Elland Road on the opening day of the season.
A solitary Enoch Showunmi goal at Darlington is enough for Leeds to progress to the second round of the Carling Cup where they are drawn against Watford at home.
Leeds make it three wins out of three in the opening week of the season, Luciano Becchio scores the only goal of the game at Wycombe Wanderers.
Two goals in the final seven minutes earn Leeds another win this time at Walsall, Bradley Johnson gets his first of the season and Beckford scores his third in three games as they continue to set the pace in League One.
Leeds turn in their best performance of the season so far when they rollover Tranmere Rovers 3-0 at Elland Road. Bradley Johnson makes it two in two, another for Beckford and Luciano Becchio`s first of the season secure the points in a game that Leeds could have easily have scored six or seven.
Robert Snodgrass scores both goals as Leeds progress once again in the Carling Cup, this time against Championship side Watford.
Leeds are rewarded for the win when they draw Liverpool at home in the third round.
Leeds make it seven wins out of seven in the month of August when they win 2-1 at Colchester United.
Bradley Johnson continues his fine start to the season with his third league goal in as many games and Jermaine Beckford scores his fifth of the season.
Despite their 100% start to the season Leeds are second in the table as Charlton Athletic lead on goal difference having also won their first five league games.
Join us next week when we take a look back at September as the Leeds continue their great start to the season.
