If Leeds get investment from the man city owners cousin, they will be hard to beat. They will probably get some good man city players on loan.

Next season can’t come quick enough really. No World Cup to break up the off season is going to be a killer.

Should be a fairly even season - I don't rate any of the teams coming down.

Wednesday will probably still middle about. Financial strain limits us from making a strong push

I think in a lower division, Fulhams defence will be less of a problem, especially if they go out to try and improve it in the summer.

Luton Town did a triple relegation from 2006-09 and are in line for a triple promotion. It's highly unlikely but it would be pretty incredible, as far as I know, a triple promotion has never occurred in the football league.

Think you're a bit confused. Leeds are potentially getting investment from Qatar, it's Newcastle who might be bought by the Man City owner's cousin, who by all reports isn't nearly as rich anyway.

Good to see you still staying up to date with everything Leeds. MOT.

Will be interesting to see who threatens. Huddersfield I think will struggle given how poor they were last season (and even their last season in the Championship I think they went up despite having a negative goal differential?), Fulham were also s**t last season and will likely lose a lot of key players, and Cardiff simply don't seem all that strong (they'll probably finish Top 10 at least, but not so sold on a promotion challenge).

Could see as many as 10-12 sides challenging. Who saw Norwich and Sheffield get automatic promotions?

I don't see how that post proves obession. It wasn't an attack at all. Literally anyone else could've posted that and you wouldn't have cared.

Haha I don’t care, SM just loves posting about Leeds because we are his rival, so I like to remind him. The cheek goes both ways, it’s all good mate.

You're a bit weird and definitely do care.

I also mentioned Newcastle in that post.

And if anything it was actually a positive post about Leeds, Qatar would have more money than the potential Toon owner.

We should be there abouts in terms of promotion next season despite our pathetic showing in the premier league this season. We’ll lose a lot of our players, but they are what led us to this position were currently in anyway. Didn’t really sit well with me basically buying a new starting XI right before the start of the season. If we can retain a lot of our 2017/18 championship play off winning side that’ll be a good start. We have an owner who’ll do anything for this club to succeed (despite that being to his detriment this season with all the s**t that he brought) so we should buy well despite more than likely losing the likes of Cairney, Sessengon, Mitrovic etc. We have a kid who is an absolute gun named Harvey Elliot who debuted in the prem at the end of the season just after turning 16, who’ll no doubt be a permanent feature of our side moving forward. I’m fairly optimistic with our chances of going back up straight away.
