Leeds United Keen To Become Manchester United's Nursery Club

With news breaking that Friar Brian is exploring the possibility of bringing in young Scum striker Will Keane, just a month or so after signing young Scum reject Wootton, the tantalising possibility of Leeds United becoming Manchester United's unofficial nursery club is emerging.

Of course, for this arrangement to work, the Manchester giants would need to be convinced that their young kids would start games - and former Everton boss Moyes will remember how the Yorkshire club couldn't find a starting berth for England international Ross Barkley last season - and would also need to be satisfied that Leeds will remain at the right level to develop their promising talent - which is, of course, the Championship.

The mid table position that Leeds presently occupy is, therefore, ideal. With Leeds seemingly going nowhere, Moyes can send his kids across the Pennines to play in games virtually devoid of pressure in half full stadiums. If they develop, Moyes can bring them back and ease them in to the first team; and if they fail to train on, like Wootton, he can offload them to the off Whites.

Despite the supposed rivalry between the teams, this would, in fact, continue a long standing, but unspoken, relationship, as Leeds have been a feeder club of Manchester United ever since 1978 when Jordan and McQueen made the step up to the Lancashire giants; and this arrangement, of course, was cemented when Cantona was allowed to make the same move, thereby opening the door for the Mancs to dominate the English game for the next two decades and more.

Leeds fans might be a little uncomfortable with the idea but if it provides them with the opportunity of seeing Premiership players in the once famous white shirts, they really shouldn't complain.

Just imagine how wonderful it would be, in future years, to watch an England team featuring Manchester United's Keane, and Everton's Barkley and say, "I saw those guys play at Elland Road in a Leeds shirt." And when Keane fires home the goal that wins the Mancs the Champions League, Leeds fans can share the glory, drinking a toast with the guys in red and white scarves whilst proudly announcing, "It was his time at Elland Road that made him the player he is today!"

And better still, there is the possibility that if Keane turns out to be a dud, Leeds might be allowed to buy him for a million or so pounds.

It's the perfect win win situation!

  1. Judging you on the title only as that's as far I bother reading !
    Now that's as absurd as asuming that West Ham is as big a breeding ground for racial hatred as Millwall is. But then again maybe not, as there's concrete evidence to back up in my asumption.

  4. Brilliant ! Devilishly funny . Also a well researched article....though you conveniently omitted to include:
    1>>Johnny Giles who went on to be a key part of the greatest club side from the mid 60's to the mid 70's,winning the championship twice ( i.e. equiv. to the current premiership)
    2>>Gordon Strachen who was also a key player,helping us to win the last championship before the premiership was inaugurated. Not forgetting we won it on the last day of the season,beating.....Manchester United.!
    By the way..how many championships/premierships have West Ham won in that same period ?
    Footnote. my friend is a "Hammer", but then, we all have our problems, Don`t we ?

    1. You mean 'beating them to the title' surely? It reads like we played them in the last game. The season we won the title (91-92) we drew 1-1 with Scum away and lost to them 0-1 at home. We beat Sheffield United away 2-3 to win the title in the penultimate game, before beating Norwich 1-0 on the last game of the season with it already wrapped up. What a year!

    2. Good call..Yes, you are absolutely correct. Well 'spotted' When I read it back I immediately realised I should have written "beaten them to the title",exactly as you say. Was going to add a correction, should have done....Like you say, "What a year"!

  20. I can fully appreciate what the writer of the article is saying... Not the cock breath stuff, but I can't envisage it being anything but positive. Yes we need wingers and forwards and a spark in midfield to to add some quality in defence. We want a quality team but have no money! This has to be plan B and what other options are available? What if these so called man U rejects gain us promotion. Let's have some faith in BM, remember to build something you need foundations.
