Well it didn't take long for the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Express to derail did it? Week one and 33,000 poured through the turnstiles to cheer Leeds on to an epic 2-1 victory over Brighton No Hope Albion; week two and just 23,766 traded the KFC Family Bucket and 20 cans of Carling from Tesco for the opportunity to watch the once mighty Whites squeak a draw against local rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
So, three games in, two of which were at home and only one of which was against a team likely to challenge for a place in the top 8, and Leeds have settled into familiar territory, 9th place in the Championship, with two teams below them - Wigan and Doncaster - having a game in hand; and should either win, Leeds will slip to tenth.
Of course, the good news is that Leeds remain unbeaten after 3 league games and one Cup game; the bad news is that 3 league games in and only 3 goals have been scored, with McCormack - who may yet leave - bagging two of them! McDermott is busy looking for a centre half when clearly a goal scoring striker is urgently needed.
Mind you, Leeds fans who listened to me will be a little bit richer tonight. I predicted 1-1 before the game and I had a tenner on at 13/2. I hope others followed my lead - because then they might be able to afford that family bucket and attend a game!
