The last 12 months has been a year like no other for Leeds United fans, which – considering our history – is quite a statement. So, I was over the moon when the Leeds United Supporters’ Trust approached me to write this poem to commemorate it for World Poetry Day 2021.

It features a huge range of voices from across our fanbase, including a Hollywood actor, a Kaiser Chiefs member, a Leeds United Women player and a Bhangra singer. Say no more.
