Despite being one of the top ten most supported club in England, it would appear that Leeds United isn’t doing justice to it’s fans’ largesse at least in so far as expectations from the clubs are concerned.
After finishing an abysmal 13th in the just concluded Championship season 2012-13, the Whites aren’t favoured to finish in the top 6 next season either. According to SkyBet, the best bet for the club is to finish between the 7th and 12th positions at odds of 2.88, while the second most likely outcome is between the 13th and 17th position at odds of 3.25. A top six finish looks rather unlikely though with a top 2 berth carrying odds of 9, while a finish in the play-off berths has odds of 4.50.
While Leeds United has 3 previous first division crowns, it would take a herculean effort for them to appear in the Premier League again any time soon. And the fans of the clubs will no doubt be praying for a miracle to drag them out of the state of mediocrity they are in at present and return them to their rightful place amongst England’s elite.
