Leeds United’s latest signing Habib Habibou has already caused a bit of a storm amongst Whites fans for a duck throwing incident at his previous club.

When play is stopped due to a duck invading the pitch, Habibou calmly chases down the offending animal before launching it across the advertising boards – clearly unimpressed at the inconsiderate actions of the duck.

In a rather amusing twist, Leeds United have handed Habibou the number 22 shirt. It’s unclear as to whether this is in tribute to his exceptional duck flinging skills, or whether it was merely a happy coincidence. Either way, we found it pretty amusing.

    My immediate reaction was whether he would be able to dispatch our lovable president unelect out of ER with as much effect

    At last a blog that serves to talk about sensible things (relatively speaking!) – I wish Leeds fans would stop commenting on that unnamed weapon from West Ham. He will go away if people lose interest..! Back to Leeds matters – happy with business in the window. Lost a striker, gained two more. Hopefully we can extend Barkley and maybe get a PL winger on loan, and we’ve got a shot at the playoffs for sure
