Leeds & West Brom look certs to go up

Post by tiger76 » Tue Dec 10, 2019 11:11 pm

I know the Champ is an unpredictable league and a long slog,but unless one or both the top 2 implode,it's hard to see how they won't come up automatically,the chasing pack keep cutting each others throats,and the gap is growing by the week.

Leeds have a guarantee of being bought out by the same lot that own PSG if they are promoted apparently

I hope so - Leeds are a massive club and should be in the PL. It would be great to see them playing Brighton - a credit to the PL and a big game.

Not saying they won't go up but this time last year they were second in the table, a point behind Norwich, five points ahead of Sheffield United and ten points ahead of Aston Villa.

They're going up and like mentioned will have a lot of money behind them next season.
It was only a matter of time unfortunately, but they have failed massively over the last 15 years or so.

Now there's a criticism I wasn't expecting. :lol: :lol: Brighton are the better club really on account of the fact that they have much nicer fans. They are a credit to football and more fans should be like them. :D









Now THAT should do it. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I can't see Leeds mucking it up this time. I'd certainly fancy them to be competitive in the Prem with their support and Bielsa as manager.

Here's hoping a big EPL club come in Bielsa, preferably before the New Year.

If the Weeds do get promoted, does this mean they won't be our feeder club any more? :cry:

Absolutely no incentive there for the players whatsoever. If that’s even remotely true, 90% of those that got them up would be replaced.

Anyway, Xmas ain’t here yet, and we know what happens to Leeds after Xmas. :lol:

Why would their support make them competitive? They're not on the pitch. Well, hopefully not. :D

Elland Road is one of the few grounds in the country where the fans still create an atmosphere. If they get promoted it will be rocking, won't be an easy place for teams to go.

Would love to see Leeds go up. The Premier League would be better for having a big club like Leeds in it and it would be a bit of a cup final for our fans to get excited about and up for

One of the many downsides though is that with the money they'll have, the atmosphere like you point out, I don't think they'll go down. And if Fulham come up, they'll no doubt have learned from last season. It'll be like Wolves.

Ultimately, it would make it tougher for us, as we want teams coming up who can't live with the Premier League.

I understand your point but im not gonna spend my time worrying and second guessing how other clubs success and failures might impact Burnley in the future

Sheff Utd looked a perfect team from our perspective to come up and they ran rings around us and look like they'll stay up at a canter

Exactly Sheff Utd have shown you don't to splash a 150m to be competitive,whereas Villa who have splashed the cash are sitting just above the drop zone.

We can''t impact on other team's fortunes(apart from beating them on the pitch) all we can do is run our ship to the best of our ability,and what will be will be,as the song goes.
