    If this thread curses them, good. But let's assume it doesn't and they're coming up.

    How does them coming up make you feel?

    Loved it when they went down in 2004 but tbh they've been gone far too long from premier league so no issue with them coming back.

    Certainly got the style that can cause many premier league teams problems as Wolves have shown.

    I'm delighted too.

    Premier League should consist of the biggest club and clubs with a history and wide fan base.

    Would like to see them go up. They play good modern football, the faster we replace the shit teams the better for the league.

    Would also love to hammer em twice a season.

    Good. I'd much rather play them than fecking Huddersfield or Cardiff. While we're at it, let's get Wednesday and Villa back up.

    Had no issue with them coming back as its a rivalry but this Bielsa stuff has soured me on him and them.

    Would be great to have them back in the top league again - they are far too big a club to not be there.

    Another team that hates us, so we better get our act together before they come up. Don't need 3 sets of fans laughing at us.

    Bielsa is entertaining too.

    It should consist of whatever teams are good enough to get to (and stay in) the premier league, regardless of their fan base or history. I like seeing the smaller clubs make it, they often have the most loyal and dedicated fanbases and they're not as entitled as some of the fans of the bigger clubs. Bournemouth are a really small club but they've been a delight to have in the league IMO, far more so than so called bigger clubs so stunk the place up for years. Wigan were great fun to have around as well.

    That said, Leeds seem to want to play good football and Bielsa is quality entertainment, so I hope they go up. Can't imagine why United fans wouldn't, I get they're a hated rival but it's not like they're going to be anything close to a threat to you .. it's just two more big, entertaining derbies that you're far more likely to win than lose.

    Their team and fans are scumbags. It will be another small club who will put in 100% against us whilst getting hammered by the other top 6 sides. Their fans have a hatred toward whilst most United fans don’t give two fecks about them.

    Do not want them in the Premier League!

    Sick. Only club I really feel hatred towards. Nothing good about that club and it's supporters. This coupled with Liverpool winning the league would make this an awful season.

    Good- it’s fun to have rivalries- more exciting than playing Bournemouth or Huddersfield.

    If I get to see them relegated next season then I guess there is a silver lining to having them get promoted.

    This is the only reason for them to come up.

    Insufferable bunch.

    Good to see one of our major rivals back - the games always had an edge to them, largely because their fans always seemed like massive cnuts. Bring them on.

    Think he’s referring to the spying on derby thread.

    Bielsa has admitted that he’s sent someone to spy on Derby. Said he’s done it before and there’s nothing wrong with it etc.

    There’s a thread about spying on the homepage.

    Another reason why I don't get the "it would be great to see another of our rivals". We have enough cnuts to deal with.

    This.

    Visiting them, City and defending Premier League Champions Liverpool next season in addition to the unwinnable Stamford Bridge fixture, West Ham's cup final as well as the north London clubs is a lot to cope with when we're trying to get our act together.

    Leeds get promoted.

    Liverpool wins the league.

    City wins the CL.
