Fresh starts have occurred so often at Leeds United they are in danger of losing their lustre but the latest contains hope under Thomas Christiansen, their eighth manager in three years, and the new owner, Andrea Radrizzani. It was substantiated on the opening day with a clinical, punishing and highly entertaining win over Bolton Wanderers.Kalvin Phillips struck an unexpected double and Chris Wood scored as a matter of routine to defeat Phil Parkinson’s team, who overcame a poor first-half display, and the financial gap that exists between them and many Championship rivals, to unnerve their guests. “It was everything I expected from the game but the heart rate went up a lot,” said Christiansen of his managerial bow in English football. “To start the first game away with a win has big importance. We have to continue with this. It is just the start.” Related: Football League: Bristol City make dream start as Luton romp to 8-2 win Related: Hull City equaliser denies John Terry a winning start with Aston Villa Continue reading. . read full article
