Typical. But then we''ll still have the last laugh I reckon, I can''t see them finishing any higher than mid-table. And by mid-table I mean a spectacularly mediocre finish, like 14th or something.

Same thing last season, it`s was all about Dirty Leeds, we didn`t really get a mention until we had won the league.Even local tv news puts us down the pecking order

Leeds may well have a lot of history but they are where they deserve to be and no team has a divine right to be in the prem,  the only player they have signed that I would have had is Billy Paynter and he''s as much of a gamble for them as Jackson is for us. Mid table at best imo.

There expectations are sky high, and they will not reach them. We on the other hand will have very little expectation (from the media) and do much better.

it didn''t really say abything about our chances dogger. It was more an interview with Adam Drury ''''the only member of the current squad that played for Norwich whilst in the Premiership''''

There was a little piece in the pull out that Bristol City were their outside tips to win the Championship

[quote user="ſilly ſauſage"]After we sued them, does anyone really think they do us any favours?  [/quote]The libel action may have been a big deal for Norwich City but it was a commonplace event for the News of the World, and certainly not important enough for the paper to start holding a grudge.And IF the paper was going to take it out on anybody it would be its own idiot reporter who wrote the defamatory story.

Why are you surprised!

 

We''ve always been largely shunned by the National media apart from the UEFA cup run which they treated us like a non League club getting to the 3rd round of the FA cup!!

 

Last season it was as if we wern''t in League 1 since it was all about Leeds. Even now the fact we won that Division by 9 clear points (and even then it should of been more if we''d of been interested in playing football against Carlisle on the last day!) has been overlooked!

 

If Leeds had won League 1 by 9 clear points, Alan Green and his crooines at radio 5 would have had an orgy celebrating!

 

Members of the public who don''t follow the stats to hard still think that we''re a little club with a small support, but who cares, facts are what count not urban myth!

The one thing that niggles me about last season and the media was that it must be a record that the team who ''walked'' the league did not have one live league game at home.

Most sensible Leeds fans recognise that we are where we are for a reason and that it could be many years before we get back to the dizzy heights of the Champions League. Things are looking up and the summer signings are okay but having a chairman like Bates always makes you suspicious that at anytime we could be back in League 1 or worse.

Well, according to them (it was them, wasn''t it?) we should no longer exist...

So frankly, what they think is irrelevant drivel.

Leeds are scum, hope they go out of business, the way the big hard fans pick on women and children make me sick.
