    That's right! A thread dedicated to THE best team in the WORLD. The mighty Leeds United. Deep down I know you're all Leeds fans at heart. What isn't to love? All white kits to show our angelic side. Real fans that know how to make noise at a game. Plus, most other fans hate us so it makes it even better!

    So join now because if you all start supporting us in a couple of years you'll be called glory fans as we'll be back in the Champions League by then :D

    I'll leave you with this to get started.


    Honestly the loudest noise i've experienced watching sports. I ended up two rows in front with a big ginger guy kissing my head.





    And to those who don't care about Leeds :moon:

    League One is basically the 3rd div but Leeds is in the Championship which is the 2nd div...

    I like Leeds... Thank you for Cantona, Rio and even Alan Smith until he got hurt... It's nice to have a good feeder team below you....

    oh Loved the Damed United as well.... other than that.... eh

    Ha! I knew that would come up soon enough! My dad was at the game. Couldn't believe how Montgomerie (I think that was the keeper) kept Leeds out.

    The day a second division team beat one of the best in the World. For those of you that haven't followed British football for ever, Leeds were one of the best in the World in the 60s/70s.

    As for losing in the League Cup. I always like to concentrate on the league anyway :wink2:

    Hey, does the 1st division play on the same size pitch with the same amount of players as the EPL?

    :) Just having a laugh.

    The Championship is where REAL football is played. Well, if real football means kicking the ball as far down the pitch as possible hoping one of your strikers will get a head to it.

    It's only temporary anyway, we got bored of the top division and everyone hating us. We thought we'd find new teams to hate us.

    The movie was good, as was the book, but it didn't show Leeds in the best light. Clough was a genius of a manager but was the worst possible choice to manage Leeds who he hated so much.

    Plus the casting for some of the players was, well, a bit iffy lets say. Johnny Giles was about 6 inches taller than he really was! It would be like casting a skinny actor to play Charles Barkley.

    I've always liked Leeds, and it's a shame they went down. I hope they make it back someday.

    I too liked Damned United. The movie was quite well done.

    Is Mike Grella still at Leeds? I haven't seen him play but he would have been a high MLS pick out of college had he not gone to England.

    Ah, Grella. He is on the bench for pretty much every game but rarely gets more than 10 minutes. I think he has a lot of potential but he needs a proper run of games to get his confidence up. The transfer window closes next week and we should bring in a striker by then. If we do I imagine Grella will go out on loan to a League One side.

    IMO this is the best thing that he could do. It will give him a chance to play and score then hopefully come back ready to play for us. He is clearly a skillful player. Most of the other players in the team describe him as the most skillful player in the squad, but he needs to toughen up a bit.
