Why Leeds are a good bet to win the Championship next season

Reading, QPR, Wigan, Nottingham Forest, Leicester and the losers of Watford and Palace are likely to head the betting and whilst it may seem a bit early to have a dabble on Leeds to win the Championship, I will take anything around 14-1 on an each way bet.

The Leeds squad aint great but will get better, with McDermott apparently under no pressure to sell and chasing down five, six or seven new signings. Leeds weren't that far off the pace for much of last season and have the core of a decent squad: Byram is the best young player in the Championship and will be better next season; Podgy Kenny and Warnock Junior offer good experience at the back; Lees shows promise and Peltier is a decent understudy.

In midfield, Green is a decent player but needs more support - this has to be a priority area for McDermott, as does the recruitment of a couple of decent strikers. Can young Poleon emerge as a Championship star next season? It's not impossible and the same applies to Hall.

By Championship standards, McCormack and Hell Hadji are also on the right side of decent, and Morison may yet come good if his confidence is rebuilt in pre season.

Meanwhile, McDermott has a track record of success in the division and will be a breath of fresh air on the training ground after the halitosis of Old Big Gob Warnock. If Leeds can get off to a good start, confidence could surge and, with the passionate fans behind them and the shadow of Master Bates all but removed, Leeds may gather the momentum of a runaway train.

  2. This is a incredibly sensible post but I would actually say over optimistic on Leeds chances!
    Not that most of us will have anything against reading something other than doom and gloom once in a while.

  10. Thrown a curveball in there haven't you HF. I suspect you found the bicycle repair kit this morning and, whilst smoking that post-coital cigarette, you were overcome by some alien feelings of positivity. It will soon wear off - you heard it here first.

    3. looool mega banter that. tbh this is why i luv 2 read the articles - theyre oddly entertaining- especially with the banterous comms! but there is always 2 sides to a coin, and judging by most ppl responses, these articles are inflamous and will further add hatred between our belovedclubs legendary supporters. and hf knows this, i would welcome hf view on this observation!

    3. Well I could be at a BBQ, but elected to stay home to watch the Headingly test. Will be back in UK for the Lords test against the Aussies, after my trip to Dubai and a holiday in the heel and toe of Italy. Out to the casino tonight. Pissing down in Bucharest at moment so looks like a good decision not to go to BBQ, but forecast to be 80 degrees plus all next week. Yep, it's a tough life for me.

    12. You assume being in a hot climate is good, well it doesn't suit me or everyone else in England, the sun is bad for you, and so is the heat.
      As for your weak attempt at writing a story about Leeds again, you yet again give nothing, my pet hamster could have written something like this just as well.

  15. Did you get one of the bigger boys in your street to write this for you? Don't waste your pocket money until you see whether the talk materialises - we've heard it all before "he's going nowhere" "he wants to stay" "we need some quality and pace in" etc - then our best players usually leave - and there will likely be bids for Lees, Byram, McCormack and Diouf.

  20. I'm sorry, but there's just no way Leeds will get promoted next season & your claim looks all the more fanciful when considering your view "... with McDermott apparently under no pressure to sell and chasing down five, six or seven new signings" ... you don't even know who he will sign yet so how can you claim that they will be a squad capable of mounting a promotion challenge?

    Well written? ... it's too full of speculative assumptions for the content to be of any value
