Leeds slide continues as Wigan defeat Blackburn

Oh dear, another day, another place lower in the table.

Leeds are now one position lower in the Championship than West Ham are in the Premiership, and that doesn't bode too well for all those Whites fans who have marked the Hammers  down as certainties for relegation. In fact, it has been quite a sobering weekend for some, what with Leeds folding 3-1 at Pride Park, 24 hours before West Ham hammered Tottenham 3-0 at White Hart Lane.

Wigan's victory over Blackburn means that the Latics are now level on points with Friar Brian's merry men, with two games in hand. The gap to the top two is already a massive 12 points, and 6th placed Blackpool have a 6 point buffer over McDermott's side. If Nooruddychance rated promoted a "harsh" target last week, he must regard it as bloody impossible now!

Of course, West Ham are not out of the woods yet - far from it - but the world looks a darn site better tonight than it did yesterday.

Tell me, when was the last time Leeds scored three goals in a league game? And when was the last time Leeds scored in the Premiership?

  4. What are you banging on so much about West Ham for on this side of your blog?
    You are obviously so thrilled with this upset victory that you cant resist going on about it.
    Save your West Ham thoughts for that side of your Blog. This is your Leeds obsession side- keep your lifetime thrill about beating Spurs to the other side. Leeds beat spurs a few months ago...no big deal to us.

  11. no we are not all paying for the new stadium to be built, as us leeds can't even afford our own stadium, we are a nothing club nowadys and can't you see the blog here is laughing at us and rightly so, we are are laughing stock, all we hang onto is past glories because we had a few years under the arrogant big don rev where we won a few things and then we have the right to call ourselves big? i think not as we couldn't sustain it like the likes of man utd and arsenal etc, they are global brands we are not and thats why we are so jealous of them, west ham using the correct name are in the PL because they have a good manager and good squad of players and a board that backs them, and they play fast attractive football unlike our crocked team that is shite all over, we chant we are the champions of europe, no we are not and you shit b*****d at oppo keepers, have you seen kenny think he needs it shouting to him and also if you hate man u stand up, note for deluded idiot leeds fans they aren't our rivals anymore so why sing about them as they never will be again apart from maybe a cup match, their rivals are city and liverpool, and also chelsea we sing about why? because they beat us in fa cup final once that was like 40 yrs ago so get over it, our fans brand millwall fans we aren't excatly saints ourselves are we?
    leeds fans we need to grow up and accept that we are merely championship mid table or league one now and will not repeat any past glory, you all only have ago on this blog cos you know he's right.

  12. I can't remember when we last scored 3 goals in league game, perhaps ask the RA Soothsayer himself, I'm sure he could extract the relevant information from his time warped brain.

    1. LOL. He changed a comment I left on his blog after I pointed out that he was blocking up the News Now board with his jealous rants about Manchester United. I'm not sure he would know the answer though Jack because Leeds have scored three or more in a few games since the Revie era!

  18. After a lengthy period of consideration following the remarks of Man U boss David Moyes on the eve of the season, the FA Premier League are set to act in recognition that the Biggest Club in the Universe have, after all, been unfairly treated.

    Moyes had been annoyed that the Greater Manchester club, often fondly known by enemies and foes alike as the “Pride of Devon”, had been “dealt with as if we were just any club.” His complaint concerned the opening five games of the season, with Man U facing three clubs that they were scared of in the first five fixtures. “It was plainly unfair,” said the irate Scum boss. “Historically, this club deserve better than the treatment just any old club gets. Don’t listen to me, ask the gentlemen that edit the Mirror, Sun and Mail. Ask Sky TV. They’re all horrified at how we’ve just been lumped in with all the rest, let me tell you.”

    Now the FA are set to take decisive action in the face of what are being seen as compelling arguments. “Mr Moyes has a point,” an ashen spokesperson said, yesterday. “We’ve perhaps taken our eye off the ball here, and maybe we’ve forgotten just who we’re dealing with.”

    Unfortunately, it has been thought “too controversial” to expunge the results of the games concerned – Man U lost to Liverpool and Man City and could only just scrape a draw at home to Chelsea. “Unsatisfactory though it may be,” the FA announced, “these results will have to stand. However, we have ruled that it wouldn’t be fair to ask Man U to play these clubs again this season. We have decided therefore that we – ahem, they – will play Bury at home instead of City, Tranmere at home instead of Liverpool and Barnet away instead of Chelsea. The two scheduled Arsenal games will feature Arsenal Ladies, and instead of playing Spurs home and away, Man U will face a Showbiz XI captained by Mick Hucknall.”

    David Moyes has cautiously welcomed what some may see as quite a generous gesture on the part of the game’s ruling body. “I can’t really agree it’s generous,” he snapped. “We dropped 8 points in those three games, and it seems we’re not getting them back. That’s nothing short of scandalous. We’ll just get on with it though as we always do at this club. At least it’s given us some scope to redress the balance a bit. We might have only got a point or two from that unfair run of fixtures if something hadn’t been done – now I’m confident we’ll get three or four. We at Man U will just hope the game’s authorities get it right first time in the future. All we ask is for our own way in everything.”

    In a joint expression of regret and apology, BSkyB and the FA have asked Man U for their forgiveness in this sorry episode. “We are fully aware of the commercial implications of Man U failing to do well,” says the statement, in part. “We’ve seen the sales projections for Man U tat and Sky dishes in hotbeds like Cornwall and Kent and how business drops off if our heroes lose. Believe us, we’ll be extending the hand of friendship and help to Man U at every opportunity. As part of this, we can give assurances that the latest “New George Best”, Adnan Januzaj will not face any disciplinary action for his future dives to win penalties. Yesterday’s incident was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and the officials concerned have been disciplined.”

    In a further gesture of support, the FA have agreed to expunge all Title records prior to 1993, send their referees on refresher courses at Man U’s Carrington Training Complex and deduct 15 league points from Leeds United with immediate effect.

    A prime example of a jealous Leeds fan called Rob Atkinson, who can do nothing better than bleat on about Man Utd on his sites when Man Utd are nothing to Leeds anymore, what an idiot
