This is all just an overreaction to the Ben White situation. Still though, I think the team we currently have would bulldoze Brighton as it stands. I look forward to putting them in their place next season after a couple of good signings and continued improvements in our own players.

Are you sure you are supporting the right club? you seem like a young girl who just seen Jason Donovan when u mention Leeds,

It speaks to the rationale of most fans. Perfectly valid viewpoint countered with an insult of no argumentative worth whatsoever...

I don't think the current squad is likely to bulldoze anyone next season as it didn't really happen last.
Brighton having been resident in the PL for 2/ 3 seasons and obviously have more financial clout than Leeds. Better(bigger) club as they seem to think on their board, historically no presently there is an argument they are. But amusing reading nonetheless. Fans do tend to suffer from a lack of objectivity both here and elsewhere.

Regards White if it's true he wants out at Brighton then you can't fault them trying maximise the profit.
Better he is gone than kicking his heels somewhere he doesn't want to be.

Think Kent could do better than Leeds tbh

Leeds aren't even that big of a club anymore - the game has moved on drastically from the 90s and early 2000s. There's every chance they could be back in the Championship next season, which I expect them to be.

The only worrying factor is wages.

In terms of club size, poential for winning things, European football, playing in front of a large passionate crowd then Rangers trumps Leeds (and by some consdierable distance) on each of those counts
.

https://www.followfollow.com/forum/thre ... 67/page-17

Wasnt overly fussed about Ryan Kent (had hoped our ambition would expand beyond old targets from when we were a division below).

But having read that i hope we get him now.

Personally always considered Scottish Prem football to be at best Championship level with many of them not even that.

Not hard to win a league where only 2 teams have any hope.

European football yes, but only if your ambition is to maybe reach the last 16, Rangers havent troubled the Quarters of Europe for 25 years.

Passionate fanbase sure, more passionate than us, doubt it.

A Premier league club will always be more attractive than any Scottish club, any Premier league club and quite a few Championship ones to.

Lol, that made me laugh. Opinions are often based on an inadequate understanding of facts. This is a case in point.

My mate who supports derby thinks this thread is hilarious, says they are going to roast leeds on there everytime we lose. Probably just winding me up but he seems so excited about it more so than Derby games.

What a sorry bunch of w**kers a lot of other fans are. Obsessing over another club rather than focusing on their own team. The Brentford love-in on here was bad enough for me, threads dedicated to other clubs would be enough for me to move on. Sad

As Leeds United turned into a left-wing political organisation all of a sudden? I am not sure where all this despising of us is coming from. Oh wait a minute, we are successful again. That'll be it. :)

I say keep it coming. :P

I like reading other fans forums when we've pissed them off or they're struggling.

Not interested in their opinions otherwise.

Actually makes me smile to read comments like 'they'll get found out' and 'clever coaches will exploit them'.

We've heard it all before. And proven it all wrong. I don't expect fans of other teams to have intimate knowledge of all our games and the finer points of our journey so far. But that's why I'm smiling. It feels like that complacency is yet another weapon in our arsenal. It feels like our prey are unwary, and we need only pounce.
