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?
