Fiew hours and at Anfield this evening, we were privileged to see one of the best first day games of any English football season. There was no boxing, just fighting. There was no defending – or none that interfered much – just attacking. There was no caution. It was all thrown to the wind. There was no timidity, just daring. Liverpool, the champions, and newly-promoted Leeds went at it like two of the great clubs of the English game and it was worth enjoying.
A seven-goal thriller it was, a spectacle that would have graced any opening day and quite a way for Leeds coach Marcelo Bielsa to announce his eccentric genius to where he deserves to be. It’s surprising to see Leeds, returning to the top flight for the first time in 16 years and played with the kind of boldness and determination to entertain that few sides attempt here. If they continue like this, everyone especially Liverpool needs to be careful.
