A sort of football related question without wanting a football discussion. More it's effect on the city.

If Leeds "Go up" will it have a positive or negative effect? Personally I'd sooner pay not to watch football (I'm a rugby man), but has Leeds' recent lack of success made us a nicer city as football takes a back seat to normal life? or does having a premiership team add vibrancy to the city? I don't go into town during the day on a Saturday, so is it "different" when Leeds play "whoever" rather than when they played the Chelseas of this world? Is it a better place now?

I,m a big Leeds supporter so I think we belong in the Premiership. Any supporter of any club will tell you that they belong there however.

I think that old chestnut about 90% of Man U supporters never having seen old Trafford proves that a football team isn抰 the city. If so neither Cardiff or Bristol would have come on leaps and bounds and anyone who tells you that Middlesbrough and Portsmouth are vibrant have never been. Anyway if its about raising the profile the money escapades at Leeds over the past 3 years have got the city more mentions in the news than any premiership matches ever could.

It's hugely relevant to soccer fans I'm sure but not to the rest of us.

I think it's the prem that's better for not having Leeds <biggrin>

I have to agree my fellow Toffeeman. The Premier League is better for not having small teams like Leeds in it.<smiley>

The down side of promotion. Hoards of blue shellshuts crossing the Pennines.
<yikes>
That explained this drop we have had in crime figures for the past two years.

How about Rugby Union. The Tykes seem to have let Phil Davies out of his cage again. He was on the radio today talking about how Leeds must concentrate on getting into the Heineken cup again (they need to come high up the league).

Leeds are adrift at the bottom of the league. :(

Adrift by 2pts. Not exactly Sunderland like up the creek without a proverbial.

A win against Northampton tomorrow and we are off the bottom. We are on form and there is still plenty of matches left. It looks a lot better now than it did before Christmas, so no throwing of the towel in yet.

Just massive world famous super exciting and successful non mediorcre sides like Everton then - Wayne just couldnt take the bright lights could he.

Cities that feel represented by the quality of their football teams are a little lacking dont you think. Bristol seems to do alright with lower league sides - think Leeds does too. Take the point on Boro and Potsmouth - Reading is no great shakes either

What has Blackpool got to do with this Dingle boy, Oh i forgot, the Seasiders are now a championship club and Leeds are now in the football wilderness.

Why is this Leeds board full of the same boring posters day in and day out, you seem to have a lot of spare time on your hands as well, tell me are you all on the dole or incapacity benefit, your whole day seems to revolve around insulting folk who do not agree with you and your Liberal left fascist thoughts, maybe you should all take a bit of time to look in the mirror, you might just see some of these so called chavs you are always insulting.

Roll on more rain to wash you lot out of West Yorkshire.

Don't know if Leeds is better without a footy team in the top flight but the prem is.

I think you'll find Everton are the 5th most succesful English club ever and only recently did Arsenal overtake them (who've never won a European trophy)They also entered the new millenium having amassed more league points and top flight goals than anyone and hold the record for the most league goals in a season and the youngest prem scorer (no, not Rooney)

I can understand if the record books are something Leeds supporters wouldn't bother with.

Think you will find that most of Evertons honours occured in the 1950's and earlier - apart from the Kendal sides of the 80's - this means that you have been leapfrogged by your more illustrious Red rivals and can share the same memories that Preston NE and Huddersfield Town do - blow the dust off and enjoy the records

I think you'll find your wrong. Our most honoured captain was Kevin Ratcliffe from 84 - 87 and we last won the league only 3 years before Lfc did and we won the f.a. cup in 95 in fact we've won a major honour in every single decade since our beginnings in the late 1800's. But don't let lies get in the way of a good story prod <ok>
