Leeds 700 not out

Postby depechedingle » Thu May 16, 2019 7:39 am

Last night was Leeds 700th game since relegation from the top flight.

690 league games + 10 playoff games.

Amazing stat.

What is this obsession with lower league clubs?

Bet365 would enjoy that, especially with a rival betting firm being Leeds sponsor!!!

Also had an academy player in every matchday squad. When I say every matchday squad. I mean EVERY matchdy squad in their history.

I'd sooner not have 1 in and be in a higher league though...

But fair play for looking out for the local kids and providing some employment.
Who wants top flight football, when there's a stat/traditional like that to keep up.

I just it was pretty cool stat. Tbf I bet most clubs had an academy product in their squads until the late 90s/early 2000s.

The sad thing is, there is no way clubs like us deserve to be above Leeds.

We are just a small town with limited resources and a tiny fan base. Playing in an outdated stadium.

Clubs like Villa and Leeds have huge tradition. Thousands and thousands of fans. And huge media coverage.

They deserve to go up soon.

Very true , it us.
I'd heard it before, it's the 1 thing they like to mention after them being the biggest club in the world, having the best fans, winning lots of trophies etc etc.

Luckily I dont make a habit of talking football with Leeds fans, in fact I often proclaim to be a train spotter if a known Leeds fan turns talk towards football.

That was so ham-fisted a cast that he’d struggle to catch a cold with it.

There is no correlation between being a small club and not deserving success. As there is none between Leeds deserving to go up. We are where we are because we deserve it. They are where they are because they don't deserve to be promoted.

I see another myth that has taken fruition, Leeds being perennial bottlers. "It's what we've come to expect being Leeds supporters", "we just have to face it we're never going to make it" "no-one messes it up like Leeds" etc. What is it with their having to always be special at something when they aren't? Granted this season was a nebuchadnezzar in terms of bottling, but it was their first real sniff at the top table for nearly two decades, they've been average at best for most of that time. Sure they cocked it up in league one for a few seasons but they went up soon enough then languished mid table in the championship for years. They're nowt special cept' for their record breaking play off cock up last night. Being top 3 when it gets dark at 5pm and then fading down the league to an afterthought is not bottling it. Bottlers my arse, they have one decent bottle in their trophy cabinet and you can still smell the label glue which is setting on it.

Edit- DL lost to Watford in 2006 play off final...not bottling it though, Watford were better throughout the season and at that point Leeds were drinking out of Ribena cartons, not bottles.

While we're on a Leeds bashing, I drove past Elland Road a couple of a weeks ago and the stadium looked tired, almost abandoned looking. It needs a good a spruce up.
