Will Middlesbrough have the last laugh on Leeds United?

Well three bids for McCormack have apparently been rejected so Mowbray and Gibson are now trying a different tactic, seemingly shifting their focus to a new target, one Lucy Becchio no less.

Now whilst Leeds fans will be rightly delighted if the Board stand firm and tell Boro where to stick their money, it could be the Smoggies who laugh last and longest if Lucy makes the move from Norwich and rediscovers his scoring boots.

In amongst all the mutual back slapping on the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Express, it may pay to glance out of the window and see exactly where the train is heading. Yes it is great that the McCormack bids have been rejected, and yes it will be even better if the Scot is still a Leeds player in September, but it comes to something when a club like Middlesbrough feel they have the financial muscle to intimidate Leeds into parting with a key player in the first place. And it must be even more galling that the Smoggies can afford to buy a player that Leeds couldn't afford to retain.

How many titles have Middlesbrough won exactly? How many times have the Smoggies played in the Champions League? They are a much smaller club than the mighty Leeds United; so how the hell can they afford to buy Becchio?

Leeds fans will fall over themselves to say that Middlesbrough are welcome to Lucy, but if Becchio bags 18 plus goals and Leeds miss out on a play off place for want of goals, it will be the Boro fans laughing longest.

  12. Leeds don't care about anything you, you idiot say. it's garbage.
    Lucy has gone.
    I like the Wooten signing and I respect the fact that Man U have allowed Leeds to sign him. This tells anybody with a brain that they respect what Brian is building and believe its good for Wooten to progress with Leeds.
    MOT to good times.

  13. Such a good article- written with incisive wit that suggests a writer with a very high IQ- Very hard to argue with, so much to admire...

  16. What a pathetic slant on the situation this really is. Middlesbrough have done really well in recent history, far better than leeds. Simplistically, they have a chairman that loves the club and leeds dont. Leeds often get 18000 crowds despite having 5 times the population of middlesbrough. Fairweather.

    1. It would be wrong to take a head count on a boro attendance as most of the crowd have two heads. Also if boro had bates wonder what crowds they would get. Btw Leeds won League Cup in 1968 nob sock!

    2. Leeds are currently averaging 28000+ mate and that includes a lunchtime kickoff televised on Sky...bit of a "pathetic slant" by yourself on inarguable facts...

  19. The train you mention is building up a head of steam right to the premier league. It's just a matter of time as BM sorts out the mess Warnock left behind.

  20. You make me giggle. How sad are some? I'm not talking about you, it's some of the responders.
    You as a West Ham fan, know how your team is limited. Is it a matter of acceptance?
    The culture of the Leeds psyche is We Can Acheive.
    Just look at it's impressive history as a place to live and play. No I'm not talking about football, I'm talking about opportunity. This is where the psyche is born.
    You must know the history of East London. Give me some astounding facts. Please don't give me Geoff Hurst. Sugar.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am not being sarcastic, I am being honestly true. What makes East London thrive? I love the history of local places that I have lived. Please give me a gem.
    At the moment I'm doing a disertation on Town, Clubs and History. Being aware of Londons village mentality, I'd like to compare it to say Middlesboro or Leeds. What makes your team tick? I'm doing it for MIT, whoops, MOT.

  22. Such clever and well thought out retorts and arguments disagreeing with the article in here, truly bowled over by them.......

  23. Meanwhile at Dildo Towers, having scraped through the play offs, that difficult second season awaits. Nobody, except perhaps the West Ham fans, is being fooled by the euphoria surrounding their 2-0 win against newly promoted Cardif - they were at home faster all.

    No closed season signings of any note and apparently, despite the Premiership riches, they don't have any more money. Could this be the top of a very slippery slope. Still, at least Liverpool have a few more quid to play with so the money scraped from the bottom of the West Ham barrel hasn't completely gone to waste.

    Any old irony, any old irony, any, any, any old irony!

  24. Since you mention it, how many titles and Champions League appearances Have the mighty West ham made?

  25. Good morning, it sounds as if your trying to get a job in the newspaper industry pal. Middlesbrough try to recruit Ross McCormack, Ross wants to stay at Leeds, Leeds reject the offer job done. But no here goes mr muppet, as starts talking about Becchio going to Boro and what that's says about Leeds? Here's what is says pal, it means Becchio is the Middlesbrough second choice! Have you nticed Becchio hasn't done much since he left Leeds? It's because he needs to play alongside someone like McCormack who does all the running. If your going to write stuff about football get your facts write

    ReplyDelete
  26. Whilst you're making comparisons, how many titles and Champions League appearances have that 'massive' club, West Ham made?

  27. you are so two faced. I guess next you will say "I told you McCormack would stay"

  29. oh dear hf.put it to bed will you.ross is in talks over a new contract.becchio could score goals,but depended on his frame of mind.we dont want him back,and boro can have him.it might come back to haunt us,cos we are still searching for that elusive out and out goalscorer,but which club dosent.

  31. Hammer, they would be welcome to him just like Norwich were, granted he scores goals on occasions but he can't pass, can't run, his style of play encourages long balls, he swears in interviews and he has a massive lack of ambition (hence his move to delia's darlings) come to think of it how come you haven't signed him?

  33. You really have got a grudge against the mighty whites????
    Maybe it was something when you were younger,that really upset you who knows!
    But you are either a Leeds fan in disguise or ,you have a big axe to grind!!
    Why are you always trying to put poison in everyday events at Leeds utd!
    Thing that must be f***ing killing you is the whites have turned a corner and you know it!
    And we will be a force on and off the field when we return where we are suppose to be!(prem)
    All I can say your a disgrace to your so called bubble blowing club!!!
