I’ve been following the board for a long time, which has been a great way to stay in touch with fellow Leeds fans given being in London it’s hard to get to many games, but haven’t posted before.

I just wanted to say I’m a little surprised by the level of negativity going into the playoffs. I can understand it, having thrown away automatic promotion and the loses at Ipswich and Wigan, but it’s a completely clean slate.

If you check the bookies, who are rarely wrong, we are joint favourites with Villa. Brom and Derby are both about half as likely as us to win the playoffs.

This season our best performances have all come against the others in the playoffs - both games against Derby, the comeback against Villa (and the performance against them last week was good) , the hammering of West Brom (which bettered their hammering of us) . Like other teams raise their game against us, we raise our game against the good teams. These games are massive, and I believe we will put in some big performances. There won’t be any complacency from the players or expectation that they will win, which I think was a feature of Ipswich/ Wigan and Bielsa knows how to prepare the players for the playoff teams.

I’m optimistic that we can do it, and certainly won’t start considering next season in the Championship until that is confirmed.

hey welcome brockley,

i know brockley well use to play football there and there is a theatre pub called the brockley jack which is good.

bookies are not often wrong but are wrong enough. spurs, barca, man utd, arsenal, leeds, millwall all favs at weekend and lost, plus leeds will have shorter odds as have big fan base so they have to cover themselves.

my worries is purely form. it ain't been great and teams that normally go up are riding the crest of a wave, histpricaly we ain't great with cups and playoffs but you are right it ain't over till the fat frank. sorry lady sings.

This is all the paperwork related to the 49ers investment last year. Nothing in itself to be excited about, unless it has been prompted by them doing some preparations for other share issues/ sales during/ in advance of due diligence.

I’m not sure it sends out a bad signal to the youth at all. They’re being given the chance of first team action and then the club won’t get in the way of a big move, and bigger salary, if that want it. It’s not like the transfer is to another Championship club for peanuts, it’s to a Champions League club.

Whilst I don’t think we should sell for £10m and he’s clearly worth more, I don’t think it’s a bad signal to the youth.
