How else do you explain the poor guy's confusion. Despite my post explaining why a 1-1 draw was the most probable result against Peterborough, he rocked up at Elland Road taking victory for granted.
Why? Well according to the 53 game Leeds Legend, "The way I looked at it was simply Leeds United versus Peterborough; not too many years ago, it would have been a Premier League side versus a bottom-division one in a cup".
Not too many years ago? Leeds dropped out of the Prem in 2004, so that's almost a decade, and between 2007 and 2010 were in the old Third Division! Indeed Brendan, it's not so long ago that Leeds were in the Third Division whilst Peterborough were in the Championship!
In fact, Leeds have only been in the top division of English football for 14 of the last 31 years! That's less than 50%! THAT is the truth of the matter and it is the failure of Leeds fans and Leeds Legends, like Ormsby, to recognise this fact that is a large factor in the club's on-going demise.
Ormsby finishes by claiming that Leeds are "a massive club" but massive clubs don't have to drop the entry price to the cost of a KFC Family Bucket to get 25,000 into the ground, a ground they don't even own, and massive clubs don't spend 17 of the last 31 years out of the top division.
Real Madrid is a massive club Brendan. So is Barcelona. So is Manchester United. How many years have they spent out of the top division in the last 50 years exactly? One year between them?
Leeds are, at best, a big club, but that label is questionable now. In truth, Leeds have slipped further and further down the rankings, becoming a feeder club to little Norwich.
So Brendan, wake up! Time has moved on. Leeds cannot take victory over Peterborough and Huddersfield for granted because Leeds, like it or not, are anchored in the same division as these clubs and, if all goes well, may be in the same division as Yeovil Town next season.
How the mighty have fallen!
