    I hate them with a vengeance... and always will.
    I'd love to see them fall in to the 3rd Division... their supporters deserve it 'cos when they were flying high, they were the most arrogant bunch in the country.

    point taken I HATE THEM TO.The point is though they took a big gamble trying to break into what is now known as the big four,very nearly made it,didnt come off and now they are paying the consequences,It must be off putting for any other club to go for it now,and makes the premiership a bit more boringly predictable

    I never minded Leeds all that much and supported them in europe when they made it to the semi's (great achievement).

    They need to be back in the prem we're they belong....

    It was always great games when it was Leeds v LFC, or Leeds v Man U.

    Leeds United are hated because of the cynical sterile football they played in the 70's. They epitomised what was wrong with the game. They had Norman "Bites your legs" Hunter - who was a complete hatchet job. Billy bremner - who they have a statue of outside their ground - who was one of the dirtiest "players" I have ever seen. Most famously he was sent off with Kevin "love it" Keagan for fighting in the Charity sheild.
    I hate them with a vengance and I am A Chelsea supporter - and it was great beating the Northern B*stards in the 70 FA final - albiet in a replay, Gits.

    What I found funny was that this cynical bunch chose to play in the colours of Real Madrid.

    What you say is true, but they had guts.

    I really loved it when Clough took them over and said to the team: you've won loads of trophies but they don't count because you cheated to get them.

    It wouldn't help. Some people have a problem with the concept that a team can be hard and skillful.

    No they were the Dick Dastardly of football.

    They could have won loads of trophies without cheating, but they didn't. Their away tactics were to kick their opponents black and blue. Just like Dick Dastardly, it was a defensive mentality that backfired, it is why they were the biggest serial runner ups in football.

    Who says you were people's 2nd favourite team?
    Which public poll was that?
    ...an outlandish, unsubstantiated claim if ever I heard one!

    L**ds v S6 Muppets.... not sure who I'd want to win.... all to die on the way to the ground would be a result I s'pose.

    ...and when I mentioned arrogant, I meant the fans, not so much the players.
    I've never had a problem with ManYoo.

    Fool? I would expect that sort of response from someone suffering from amnesia.
    There is absolutely no denying that Leeds had some real classy players at the time. Johnny Giles was probably the best midfielder of the time, Eddie Gray had fantastic speed and Peter Lorimer the hardest shot in football.
    Taking all that into consideration if their opponents deemed to attempt to play football they were kicked off the park.
    As for the 1970 finals which were horrific, Chelsea fought fire with fire and gave as good as they got. Which obviously Leeds couldn't handle.

    Let us not forget their manager at the time, that slime ball Don Revie, the guy that run out on England to take the Arab Riyals, was the root of everything that was crap in football at the time.
