genomeOld Man AndrewsFrom Despair To Where? The problem with Leeds, and I'm removing my shit tinted spectacles with regard to them just for a moment, is fourfold.
Firstly, I see 2 glaring holes in their team; up front and in goal.
Secondly, they don't have enough strength in depth which is why they always struggle when their key players are out.
Thirdly, Bielsa flogs his squads to death
Fourthly. The level of expectation for a club that has been in League 1 more recently than the Premiership is staggering. The moment the first three things take effect, the fans will get on the players' backs and they will shit themselves further.
So I'm summary, Leeds will fall apart again.
Oh, and for all the big club bollocks, they don't actually have the money to compete at the top end of the Premiership.
Last point is certainly not true. Over £250m will be pumped in by investors if they go up. There are a number of interested parties waiting in the wings, they just need promotion before they declare their interests.
That seems odd, though, when you look at what happened with Wolves.
Wolves had a very different business model. They had/have a super agent working with them who feeds them his clients on the cheap from selling clubs he also works with in advisory roles. Wolves started building for the Premier League whilst in the Championship where as Leeds are a bit limited until they get there because the cash won't come in til then.
