SM, with all due respect, you're clearly showing bias here. Leeds are 3rd and 1 point off of the top 2. Of course they're a chance of promotion. Add to being a historically big club with a large fanbase, there's clearly potential for interest.

Not sure what all these PL plastics are doing in here, you clearly have no clue about the way of the world in the Championship.

Leeds is also the 3rd biggest city in England, Leeds United being the only team there. If you can’t see the potential in the club you’ve got no idea.
And ? Millwall is fighting to keep there home stadium from getting turned into apartments ?

If we have leant anything clubs come and go. Doesn't hull in theory have the biggest following ?

Exactly. Clubs come and go. Clubs are competitive for a period and then aren’t and vice versa. So Leeds could have been bottlers for a while but may not be in the next ten years. It’s not a hard concept to understand. Surprisingly SM hasn’t grasped this one for some reason.

Leeds are in the top 10 for average home attendance, which includes premier league clubs. We also average nearly 4000 away supporters for every away game. Hull are irrelevant, if they were seen as a decent club with strong support and history then no doubt someone would come knocking. But why would someone want to invest in a mid table championship side that lucked a few premier league seasons?

Wasn't hull found out to be cheating on social media?

Come on lucked? Hull held steady in the top flight and if not for Snodgrass breaking in half might still be up.

They have twice the amount of social media followers too. I hope both clubs fold to be honest but are you really comparing the too?

How many managers have you had the past 10 years ?

The last 15 years have been the worst in the clubs history and Hulls best. Yet here we are, a massive consortium seeing potential in Leeds and willing to pump millions of dollars into it as we sit 3rd in the league chasing promotion. Hull are 12th.
That’s my comparison.

We sit 12th despite being one of the only clubs in the Championship in a profitable position, with our wages the lowest as a proportion of our turnover in the division. We are punching massively above our weight and probably have the best two wingers in the division.

Are Leeds the only Championship club to have played in the Champions League in it's current format?

Lads, SM is clearly trying to wind Leeds supporters up and has done a pretty good job TBH.

Richmond is a prime example of a club being able to turn things around.

Leeds has more followers on Twitter than Hull actually (admittedly not that much, only 17 k more or so).
