On the contrary, Leeds going down would be the best thing to ever happen to the Championship and Sir Kev can claim to have single handedly raised the level of the 2nd tier.

London will go down, but it'd be nice if we sent Huddersfield and Wakey down with em. Crap clubs.

:IDEA: Good idea that, send three crap clubs down and promote three other crap clubs in fact why stick there, lets include Leeds and KR two more crap clubs, then SL really will be buzzing next season :roll:

On the crapness scale, 10 being really crap, 1 being a bit crap, Wakey are at least an 8. I struggling to think of a single redeeming feature of the Wakefield Club.

Wakey were good in the 1960's I suppose, and I like Fifita, he's good.

You certainly have, like Gotcha who is Leeds own ‘Mr Deluded’ who reckons you’re way better than your league position suggests. Or others who reckon your roster is way better than bottom of the league, but how many of that roster get in to other SL teams? Not many at all.


He is the worst for it. Constantly during and after games under McDermott everything was dreadful and we were lucky and you’d barely get one positive comment out of him about performances even when we were winning trophies, when we finished 2nd in the league table in 2017 it was only because all the other clubs were poorer. Now every game he’s Mr Positive and saying performances are much better and we deserve to be higher and everything ok.

He’s one of those that I mentioned that thought the grass would be greener when McDermott left and hated the guy. These people would have constant weekly stories of being told by people/players at the club that were always heavily critical of McDermott and Hetherington, never stopping to question the agenda of these people whose main aim seemed to be to undermined BM and GH and get stories out there into the fanbase that painted them in a bad light whilst giving all the credit to certain guys.....guys we now conveniently see getting roles at the club including most of Hetherington’s role - who if anybody thinks wanted to give up all that responsibility midseason just like that are well and truly kidding themselves. It’s true when Sinfield said the club was rotten but those responsible for that aren’t the ones Leeds fans think. Those senior players have been politicking their way into roles for several years

And Peacock, disaster seems to follow his appointment

London will go down, but will fight all the way.

They would down already if Saints didn't rest players in their two home games.


If Sinfield didn’t give HKR Garbutt who’s been a big performer this season and then Parcell who got MOM on debut vs Hull then HKR could easily be at least a couple of wins worst off right now which would probably be too much left to make up and have all the other teams safe including Leeds. Masterstroke.

Wakefield are a top 5 side these days aren't they? Who is to blame for them being down there? it certainly can't be themselves.

Oh how i'd laugh if it was them

Nah they're on a par with shudds atm, it's a good job we've beaten you three(3) times already this season or we'd be in a worse pickle than what we are in now, and talking of which If I'm honest it would destroy me if shudds actually went down and we helped do with those wins over you, I wouldn't laugh at your misfortune, no seriously :lol:

You do realise that were the 3 clubs you suggest all drop from SL, yours would then be the crappiest by some distance.
As the phrase goes, be careful what you wish for.

It's strange that in the round ball game, stadia and attendances count for little and they worry about what is taking place on the green stuff.
Football is huge and has many faults but, at least the talk is about the sport itself.

RL could learn a lot from that.

Btw, why dont you include London in your hit list ?

Yep hilarious, just what SL needs is the best run club (off the field) with the largest attendance figures and huge corporate numbers to not be in SL.

I get that other teams find it funny that Leeds with all their success are in this position, and if we finish bottom under the current system we deserve to go down but I'd say be careful what you wish for.

I get your point but, as RL is supposed to be a sport, success should be measured by results on the field of play and not by your bank balance or attendance figures etc.
