You have to laugh. According to John Boy Carew, we are the Manchester United of the Championship and that's why every team raises their game when they play us. That is so much cobblers on two levels.
Firstly, we are no bigger than Leicester and Leeds have a much more glorious history than we do. How many titles have we won and how many European Cup finals have we reached exactly? Leeds have three titles to their name and have been runners up 5 times. They've also won the FA Cup and League Cup and two Fairs Cups. Makes our three FA Cups, one Cup Winners Cup and an Inter Toto piss pot look pretty paltry doesn't it? And when was our last trophy? 1980. Leeds won the title in 1991 and reached the European Cup semifinal the following season! What is the most we have paid for a player? £7.5m for Ashton? £8million for Savio? I don't know. Leeds paid us £18m for Rio! And we are the Manchester United of the Championship? Yeah and Norway is the economic powerhouse of Europe John!
But anyway, when did Manchester United last lose a home league game exactly? The Manchester United of the Championship? In our dreams, then we would be pissing this division!
Danish pigs must be flying over Oslo as John Boy Carew speaks!
Night Sue Ellen!
