Echoes of Revie as Leeds earn sweetest of victories at Bolton
Up to sixth after an away win at Bolton (just as Jack predicted on this blog), the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond is back on track, and with a vengeance! And how sweet was that win?
The Trotters were amongst the pre season favourites for promotion and their campaign is already dead and buried. A play off place may yet be possible - they are only 9 points adrift of sixth placed Leeds after all - but it is one hell of an ask from here.
Better still, at right back for the lacklustre Lancashire team was one Matt Mills, a player Bolton tried to offload to Leeds throughout the close season. The victory and clean sheet were a great way of saying, 'Who needs him?'
Better still, the Leeds team featured instead young Wootton who, based on a couple of performances, is beginning to look like a real catch from the Scum.
Better still, former Leeds United goal machine Jermaine Beckford came off the bench and got the script all wrong again, failing to live up to the Unwritten Law of the Ex. The guy really is looking like a shot bolt now and Bolton are paying him ridiculous wages.
Better still, Reg Varney scored again, suggesting that McCormack doesn't have to Mccarry the Mcgoalscoring Mcburden alone all season.
Better still, there were no negatives at all - except perhaps for Hunt who remains goalless and increasingly a candidate for cockney rhyming slang jibes.
Father Brian will be full of benisons as he takes prayers this morning. I wonder what hymn he will suggest? Too early yet, it seems, for "The First Noel" but with things going so swimmingly for the bald headed maestro who walks on water, surely even that is only a matter of time!
