Look how much spons Leeds miss out on every year they fluff promotion

https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2017/may/15/hull-sunderland-middlesbrough-relegation-premier-league-championship
"Hull will receive 47m in parachute payments next season and 38m in 2018-19 (had they been in the Premier League for more than a single year they would also have been due a third instalment of 17m, in 2019 20)"

No Leeds fan needs reminding of that. I'd say having money from just one of the big transfers and contracts of the Ridsdale era would represent some lift now.

I thought that Fulham would have been favourites to go up but they fell at the semi-final stage this evening. Hope the winners of Wednesday and Huddersfield make it to the Premier League now.

Galling when you see how poor both Reading and Fulham were last night - come on the Owls.

Hard to believe a team with Paul McShane in it has a chance to go up.  Surprised at Fulham.  Hope Wednesday go up.

Just when things were beginning to look up with the takeover of Radrizzani. Gutted by this news and it's a real blow to the Club.

I get a sense, trying to read between the lines of the BBC Report that the Club was trying to tie him down long term but although willing to stay, he did not want to commit to the long term.

I heard the opposite Rufus, he wanted a 3-yr contract, but he was only being offered 12-months.

I don't think the new owner ever wanted Monk. He'll bring in his own obscure foreign manager and Leeds will be back to square one.

Definitely appears to be versions here Billy that are conflicting to a degree.

I see early talk of Aitor Karanka. His Premiership tenure with Middleborough was very uninspiring but he does have a promotion on his CV.

He appears to be a bit of a diva - he'll fit in well with the board so.

And you're playing us today, probably the easiest three points  Leeds will get this season?
This is one of those proper "grudge" matches, at least amongst the fans it is.
