I for one would prefer to stay in the Championship under Bielsa (and I think we will) than be promoted under say, Warnock.
The Premiership is fairly shit unless you have money (by which I mean more than the money you get for being up there). The second division is a more exciting league and seemingly anyone can win it. There are so many big clubs down here now it doesn't seem like much of a difference anyhow. Until we have a wealthier owner there's little point being up there anyhow.
On a certain level, I guess I sort of get this, but on a better level? Fuck that. I want
Leeds to test itself against the best.
The Championship may very well be “a more exciting league” much in the same way it’s probably exciting to watch street cars race at 100 mph because they’re relatively even. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t rather watch the Indianapolis 500.
If fucking Bournemouth can figure out how to sustain Premier League status, surely we can. We might even luck out and pull a Man City ownership upgrade and be rich as fuck.
