Leeds and Chelsea have a massive rivalry too to be fair.

They hate Utd more but they hate Chelsea a lot and I think the feeling is mutual. Not sure how it started, need a Chelsea fan to explain it. @duffer ?
1970's FA Cup final has a lot to do with it. It was something that was also born out of Chelsea being the flashy team or the late 60's/early 70's and Leeds being the hardnuts. Also, both their firms loved a barney.

Personally I think Leeds being up is a good thing. Brings more needle to games. PL misses a lot of that these days.

Personally, I would love to see Millwall sneek a play off place and win promotion as when they go to Dipperland it will be like a Mad Max film.

They also have a bit of a rivalry with Sunderland I think...

In fact I think a lot of teams just hate Leeds.

That's true actually.

Lot of people right now saying how nice it is to have Leeds back in the Premiership.

They won't be saying that after the Leeds fans have visited their stadiums next season, if fans are allowed back in anyway. Horrible fans.

Leeds and Liverpudlian accents are by far the worst. Coincidence? I think not.
The Manc accent is hardly music to the ears.

Genuinely pleased they're finally back in the league. Might try and get to a few games if I can.

Great for the league. A big game at a brilliant stadium and the wins will be all the sweeter.

Just hope the fans are around to watch this game next year at Old Trafford. The stadium will be extra noisy.

Let’s hope we get over the line for top 4 as we may be looking at the unholy trinity of -

Liverpool - Champions
Leeds - Promoted
City win the Champions League...

Eirik Bakke, former Leeds player on the promotion: "To be back in the [top flight] after so long is bigger than winning the Premier League." :rolleyes: :houllier:

This is a topic of conversation for some Bournemouth fans as well today. People rueing the fact that if Bournemouth stay up the area will have to host Leeds for a game... We really don't like them down here.

Hate this lot with a passion, remember one of there last season's in the premier league at Old Trafford. Usual police escort to the ground and some tit of a Leeds fan thought it would be a good idea to square up to a copper on a horse. Horse decided he's had enough and brought his jaw/chin straight down on the blokes head. Needless to say he went down like a sack of shite ...sparko. horrible fans horrible team!!

The James Milner Treble.
The only man who could play for those three clubs and not even be a candidate for hate figure on here. A football version of the Lighthouse Family, playing in front of a beige coloured set.

Can’t wait to play them, as a United fan and a South African, watching them when Lucas Radebe played for Leeds in the 90’s and supporting them doing well against other teams was terrible!
Imagine supporting a team you hate against other teams, except them playing Liverpool, did my head in!
Thank feck I have no reason to support these deckers anymore.
We will smash them. White vs Red!

I live in Leeds, half a mile from Bielsa and can confirm they hate us the most (and it's not even close).

Thank god i'm not back in the work place until August 3rd.

Yep.

There’s lads who played a handful of times for only one of the terrible three who are more hate figures than the bland Milner is. Some achievement!

After a 17 year wait the Roses rivalry is back. Looking forward to watching Man United picking up 6 points in those games.

Not massively. Maybe a bit with the Dippers in the early 00's.

They despise us more than any other team (Dippers and City included) and there's a fair bit of hate reserved for Chelsea also.

Edit:Just seen you are a Chelsea fan.
