2010, Leeds United has ended, and the club closes the book on the events of the decade when on Sunday in Birmingham City won with a score of 5-4.
Despite the fact that Leeds United spent almost all of the decade stuck in the Championship, it has usually been violent for the past ten years.
Bright owners, financial collapse, outstanding players, exciting Academy prospects, centennial celebrations and the appointment of the most high-profile head coach in their history mean that there is a slight threat that Leeds will lose its status as one of the most exciting trips of English football.
Earlier this month, we developed a list of the best players wearing a Leeds T-shirt and gave you the opportunity to choose your best XI of the 2010s.
We ourselves tried to perform a difficult task here, as some excellent players had to stay away.
You sent your XI in the thousands, and now we were able to compile them all to develop your most popular XI.
You can see the command below, and we will go through XI here …
Goalkeeper – Casper Schmeichel
It is difficult to argue too much here in terms of pure abilities, although the question of whether his exploits were after joining Leeds has in some cases been clouded by judgment.
Defense – Luke Ailing, Ben White, Liam Cooper, Charlie Taylor
The Leeds United defense this season is a cut above the competition in the Championship, and this is reflected in your vote.
Isling, White, and Cooper all cut with Charlie Taylor, who is being covered on the left. It is not surprising that the latter were included, since the position of the left back was a headache for various Bely managers for a decade.
Pontus Jansson may find it difficult to handle Sam Bayram’s performances on some of the terrible teams that are also worthy of inclusion.
Midfielder – Robert Snodgrass, Calvin Phillips, Pablo Hernandez, Max Gradel

Here’s a neat split between the two best sides of the Leeds decade.
Snodgrass and Gradel saw the Leeds begin a decade in a row, following the Manchester United victory in the FA Cup, moving back to the Championship, and if it weren’t for the modest actions of Ken Bates in the boardroom, they could both go back to the promotion Sigh.
Home-grown Phillips is perhaps the most popular player of the decade among fans of Elland Road, and Hernandez is the most talented. Both are easy choices, with Lewis Cooke here is a big omission.
Forward – Luciano Beccio, Jermaine Beckford
There are some tricky options here – Ross McCormack was the decade’s most productive striker for the Leeds T-shirt, and Chris Wood was arguably the best season.
Jermaine Beckford makes his XI
But the partnership between Beckford and Beccio was too good for you to break up. The former secured two of the best moments of the decade with his goals against Manchester United and Bristol Rovers, while the latter ended his time in Elland Road as one of the club’s top ten scorers of all time.
