Everyone's Making The Same Joke About Leeds United's New Badge
Leeds United have revealed a new club badge and it's to literally no one's taste! The whole of social media is ganging up on the Championship club and there's one joke no one could stop themselves making.
About a year ago Juventus revealed a new club crest that went away from what many would consider a traditional club crest and looked more like a marketing tool or a symbol for a new designer clothing range.
Leeds United changed their club colours in the early 60's with Don Revie deciding the team should play in white rather than their traditional yellow and blue. Lord knows what Twitter would have thought if it had existed, back then.
Now they've changed the club badge and it's a crime against football. According to the club they spent six months consulting 10,000 people and somehow came up with this. Which people did they ask?!
So many people made the same joke and it's hard to disagree.

Leeds United are now rebranding as Yorkshire White and playing in the Master League, judging by their new crest... https://t.co/kRrNpMcArK

It's atrocious. All that 'research' and that's the best you can come up with?! It looks like something from Pro Evolution Soccer in the early 2000s. Awful!!

looks like something of a computer game when they don't have the rights to use the real badge

Vile. Looks like something I made on pro evo when I was 12

I'm pretty sure this badge is already taken by West Yorkshire White on Pro Evo 2003. https://t.co/7FT7V0PYfE

'Six months of research'! Looks like a rejected crest for one of the old Pro Evo games https://t.co/uUwhb2ZdPd
