Used to love Wednesday. DiCanio and Carbone were awesome together
No - not last night
Love it.. one of those games you used to love.
It was bound to happen eventually. A club that size will find its way to unfeck itself (and they were really fecked 15 years ago).
In 2004 I probably thought it would take them about 5 years maximum before they were Premier League again, but they've had a run of mad owners, more managers than you can count on your fingers and toes and the obvious money issues.
PL needs the likes of Villa, Leeds, Stoke etc back. This season in particular is the weakest, on paper, in living memory. Week after week there are drab fixtures that don’t inspire you one bit. Replace Huddersfield with Leeds today and how much more attractive does Cardiff v Leeds look. Make that Villa v Liverpool today instead of Brighton and it’s much more inteteresting.
I’d welcome Leeds back.
It's a no from me. Horrible club. Horrible fans. Horrible ground. As someone else said, the Millwall of the North.
They dropped through the divisions because of their own hubris and, personally, I've missed them like a third nostril.
I'm happy to see a club like Brighton in the Prem. They have built a state of the art stadium and climbed the divisions through hard work, financial prudence and an astute manager. I'll take that over spavined old heifers with an over developed sense of entitlement like Leeds every day.
As much as I dislike Leeds, they (and Villa) are a level above Stoke in terms of history and fanbase. Stoke can have a few years down there in my opinion.
It’s about time, much rather they be in the Prem over nothing teams like Burnley, Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth etc.
It’s unbelievable There’s actually teenage Leeds fans that have never seen them In the premier league.
Stoke are so irrelevant that I forgot they had even gotten relegated until I saw they fired Gary Rowett.
Ridsdale should have been allowed to finish the job.
The Premier league should consist of the best teams in the land regardless of size or history or fan base.
Stoke are, in my opinion, a bigger club with a more passionate support than Cardiff, Huddersfield, Watford, Fulham, Brighton, Crystal Palce, Bournemouth etc. They’d always give the top six a game and a trip to Stoke was always a game where you thought a top six rival may slip up. I’d tune in to a Sky game with Stoke because they were generally competitive, I wouldn’t go from the kitchen to the front room to watch Cardiff, Huddersfield or Fulham.
I really, really dislike Leeds. Hope it goes to shit for them.
I am happy too, just to be part of the spectacle again. Leeds vs United matches will bring out the tribalism we so miss in today's highly tactical and insipid affairs. There needs to be more passion in the game and fixtures like these will surely up the stakes.
Biesla will also add a different style and dimension to the PL - despite his unethical practices.
One of the games I’m looking forward to seeing again next season is this fixture.
Delighted they are back to be honest. Had been too long. Sometimes I want to see Arsenal do better as well (not nowadays but when they are bellow us) because I used to hate Arsenal and I want that Arsenal vs Man United rivalry back.
They're not back yet. Only 4 points above 3rd with 19 games left.
Would rather play Leeds than Fulham Brighton or Bournemouth etc
Least the Leeds matches will have bit of needle to them, especially with the two sets of supporters, Will one of the biggest games of the season and one for support to look forward too.
Leeds looked extremely fit on Friday night, no wonder Bielsa is such a hero to Pep.....
My most hated team of the last decade or so under Pulis. Rotational fouling, route 1, set pieces and long throws.
Just keep the ball out of play or in the air.
They're an interesting club. Way too many nothing clubs in the league at the moment tbh. Most of the bottom half is just a huge shrug.
Bielsa in the PL would be great to watch too.
Leeds a "small club"
Im one of these generation of people.
Younger than many on here.
I grew up finding them quite entertaining.
With Kewell,Hart,Jimmy Floyd,Viduka,Smith,Keane etc.
If memory serves they even helped us win a title by beating Arsenal.
Never knew we had such a dislike for eachother,even though i did hear a few whispers of a rivalry the last time we played.
I thought nothing of it at the time.
I started watching just after they were relegated, so I don't even remember us ever playing them in the league. Will just be another newly promoted team for me.
A tough 6 points for Utd to get while they bend over for City Liverpool and the likes. No thanks.
When Leeds got relegated and went into financial ruin I thought it was hilarious. I loved it that first season. But then I realized that when it's all said and done, what's the fun in having a rivalry if you can't beat them? I doubt our rivalry will ever get to where it was before, and they will become more like how City used to be, but it will still be fun to beat them. THey may need us a hell of a lot more than we need them, but rivalries are what makes this game great. Celtic need Rangers, Barca needs Real Madrid, and Leeds need Manchester United...
Always good to have your rivals in the same league. Not much of a rivalry when you're so far apart in the football pyramid.
Also Bielsa in the Premier League would be great with his no shites given attitude. Until he implodes and loses his job that is.
I think they should stay down there.
Possibly by results not going their way on the last game of the season.
Preferably in the dying seconds of a game that has gone into extra time after theirs has finished, in a match that means feck all to the two teams taking part, through an offside handball.
Their fanbase is vile. For that reason alone, please no.
Can't wait for the opportunity to smash the cnuts twice a season
Their fanbases' penchant for mocking tragedies for a start.
Trying their absolute best to sheg their quest for premier league football.
Anyone remember Lee Bowyer?
We all hate Leeds scum, we all hate Leeds scum...
I'd love them to never get back into the top flight.
Horrible club, horrible fans.
I don't think any club or set of fans hate Utd more than Leeds do. Even more than City or Liverpool or Stoke for some reason
They can feck off and stay in the lower leagues for eternity hopefully.
I want them back, but they're doing everything they can to mess it up.
Looks like if they come up it will be via the play off.
Keep them down there until we can get our shit together, otherwise it'll just be another team of game raising cnuts against us alone.
Get them all up. Forest, Leeds, Villa, the two Sheffield clubs and one other from Derby/Birmingham/QPR/Middlesborough.
Boot out the following: Bournemouth, Burnley, Brighton (Huddersfield, Cardiff, Fulham).
Separate names with a comma.
