Satire: A Manchester United Fan’s Opinion On Leeds United’s Recent Talk Of Promotion

Leeds United have a sour history with Manchester United. One club an English great, the other a forgotten case; a brilliant example of how a club mustn’t run. Leeds United seem to be en route to promotion from the Championship. Having being relegated in the 2003-04 season, the once former ‘greats’ might finally be playing in the Premier League again if Garry Monk can keep up his good work.

The only promotion they can probably make to the league is some crappy chants from the fans regarding their rivals. Their return to the Premier League can guarantee one thing – a drubbing in every game that will impel a sombre return to the championship.

The fans? Are naïve!

On some recent interviews with HITC sport, some of the fans seem to remain delusional about their chances in the Premier League. While they haven’t been promoted yet, the fans speak like they deserve to be here. Having been in the purgatory of the Championship for quite some time, some fans feel that they are better than half the clubs in the Premier League. I’m willing to bet my money that they can’t even beat the likes of Sunderland or Hull City let alone the other teams. These are the set of fans who called Reading boring while they couldn’t even score more goals than them in the championship (as it stands).

They are better off in the championship

Leeds United are better off in the championship. In this manner, they can at least keep the fans happy by winning games there. Should they be in the Premier League, witnessing some actual football (from the opposition) can be the only consolation! The fans will have to travel the extra distance only to watch Leeds disappoint again. So, staying in the championship and winning a few games here and there would be in the best interests of both.

How will their squads cope up?

The Premier League is as competitive as it can get. Sure, they can win a game or two here if they get lucky; but how do they expect to compete against the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United, and Liverpool? I’ll be damned if they win even 3 of their first ten games (if they do get promoted that is). To think their defence can handle the likes of Hazard, Sanchez, De Bruyne is beyond imagination. So, if anyone wants to witness a goal bonanza, tuning into a Leeds game might be ideal. Taking their attack into consideration, their best goal scorer has 13 goals to his name. This would be fine in the Premier League, but to have no stellar name in the squad and then come marching into the top tier would be disastrous.

Do I want to see them here?

Do I want to see Leeds United here? Well, in all honesty, I do. I want to see Leeds United back in the Premier League. When they visit Old Trafford I want that streak of not beating us to continue. A bashing from our side will be their welcome gift and a remembrance of what they truly are –a lower tier club with a guest appearance in the Premier League.

Do I feel bad for them?

To be honest the only good thing that came from Leeds were Cantona and Ferdinand. They did choose wisely so I can’t really count it as a contribution from Leeds but I’ll say that Cantona was indeed a nice thing to happen. To put my feelings in actual accuracy, I don’t really care whether they get promoted or not. Where Leeds go, disappointment follows. The fans are no less than annoying, their chants vile and personal and their sense of respect is absolute zero. When Sir Matt Busby left us, a moment of silence was observed by all football clubs but Leeds decided to act in a special manner. They decided to spoil the tribute by singing – “There is only one Don Revie.”

So, we will see whether the mass at Old Trafford will be singing more of “we all hate Leeds s***” next season, or will Leeds build up hope only to retain their rightful place in the Championship. Time will tell but either way, I just can’t wait. The hatred between the two can reignite the sparks of the past. The fiery bitterness between the two could be a thing yet again.
