Love them or hate them, it is undeniable that Leeds United are one of the best known clubs worldwide.
Renowned for their passionate fans and intense rivalries, the club has a huge online presence, most notably a number of blogs. Here, fans and admirers can engage in fierce discussions about their beloved club.
In first place is The Scratching Shed which flaunts the most eye catching design of the three. It enables fans to submit their own articles whilst keeping them informed about the latest news and transfer rumours. The bright home page welcomes users, giving them an unsurprising reach of 27500 twitter followers, the highest of them all.
Leeds United Mad has the most corporate feel of the three, not surprising as it is a sub section of a wider football blog, Footy Mad. It encourages discussion by offering the chance to join a Leeds United forum as well as keeping supporters updated through regular statistic updates and match reports.
Bringing up the rear is one mans blog; Life, Leeds United, the Universe & Everything. Author Rob Atkinson posts spirited, heartfelt posts that reflect his personal opinions and feelings about his cherished club. It offers a space for other fans to join in discussions, giving the blog a modest twitter following of 4374.
All three blogs, driven by loyal fans that truly love the club, give a welcome alternative to the official website which ensure you get an honest insight into the clubs trials and tribulations.
