Leeds fans have been feeling short of reasons for optimism after a recent blip in form has seen them slip down the table, particularly following the defeat to Queens Park Ranger on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old has been surprisingly left out in recent weeks, up until a substitute appearance in London, but remains positive about the feeling around the camp and what it could mean.
“It’s different teams, you know and I’ve heard this question a hundred times, but you can’t compare,” he told LUTV.
“What we’ve got this season is special and unique. The spirit we’ve got with the boys in the dressing room is something that you rarely come by in your career. So it’s a special time and hopefully we can create special memories.”
Having won promotion as a regular in Nuno Espirito Santo’s team last season, he will be keen to achieve back-to-back promotions with Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.
The one cap Scottish international has often spoken out about his positivity and that around the camp, despite results fading off, and Bielsa must embrace such emotions to lift his side again.
Douglas may be hoping that any promotion would be a positive for him, rather than another negative, but only time will tell if these claims come to mean anything.
