No one else here support a Football team too?

This may be Bannable but I am a Leeds fan myself!

We currently have an owner that is as mad as a box of frogs.

Oh that's no good Mav, I'm a Man Utd fan. I'll have to consider your position on the team :lol:

I always thought Leeds and the Wendies shared a mutual respect (of sorts), based mainly on laughing at the Blunts?

All the Leeds fans I know (that are not mouth breathers) would love to see more Yorkshire clubs in the Prem (except the Blunts again) - obviously as long as we are there too!

Every club that has ever had contact with the Blunts tends to routinely loathe them.  This may sound all too predictable from a Wednesday fan, but I am well travelled with Wednesday and have often come across a 'you lot are alright, whilst they are scrubbers' mentality.  Like all clubs we have our morons, but generally we travel well and enjoy road trips in the right way and have plenty of boozers near Hillsborough wherein home and away rub shoulders together pre and post match well.  Not sure the same is ever said of the great unwashed.

Ahem

Can I just express my joy at Wednesday securing a league home win today, the first since September the 20th!  It kind of makes up for the painful anti-football spectacle that I saw them and Rotherham turn in to a 'fine art' two weeks ago.

I am assuming that Mav must be glowing as well after seeing of Derby!?!?

Just moved into a new house so I missed the football tbh, I just hope we can string some wins together as we have much better players than our position suggests, now they have played together for a while we should begin to reap the rewards.

Have you heard the breaking news today on Cellino?  The Football League have banned him from controlling Leeds due to tax irregularities, he has 14 days to respond.  Not sure how this latest wave of unrest will go down at Elland Road, I know that he is pretty unpopular there but more disruption is hardly good for the fans?

he is fairly popular actually, I expect the FA will back off as they are actually bending the rules pretty far to do this.

I expect his lawyer will soon be ripping them a new one, again.

Maybe the Leeds lads that I work with are the exception rather than the rule on him.  I think you may be right on the FL front and certainly expect him to come out all legal guns blazing.  He does not come across as someone who is quick to back down.

Ban upheld, though why go through so much to make him appear not in control till April is beyond me!

Regarding Celino, he is mental yes, he is controlling, he does also think he can manage the club as he owns it.

But for all he does wrong you can see it is because he does it for the right reasons, football reasons.

After years of asset stripping I am happy to have someone that while wanting to keep finances under control is looking at the playing squad.

Very baffling indeed, but not surprising as I have long given up trying to understand the modus operandi of numerous governing bodies in football.  Why have reasoning to bat someone off, but only effectively until a few months later? Nuts.

Well Wednesday have just been taken on by a Thai consortium.  Dare I dream?  Does this mean that we will stop buying cast offs from other teams at our level whilst being told by the board that we should be excited with this new purchase? Will we now buy players that we actually want, ones that are genuinely better than what we have got? Will my boys actually get to see good Wednesday sides compete, like I did in the 80s and early / mid 90s?  I almost feel giddy just at the POTENTIAL prospect alone!

Time will tell I guess - UTO!

Be nice to see Leeds and the Wendies both in the Prem, god knows Yorkshire have not been properly represented in there for a very long time.
