…Here we go again! Its been almost 3 months since Jermaine Beckford knocked the ball in the back of the net and send Leeds United up to the Championship at the third time of asking.
For too long, Leeds languished in League One, the effect of some bad management in the past and the pinnacle of our freefall from the days of the Champions League days. But when that ball hit the back of the net on 8th May 2010, we knew we were on our way back.
Today it all comes to a head. After a crap World Cup campaign and 3 months of wondering how we would fare with “this team” back in the Championship, we will all find out this evening.
Derby County will make the short journey up the M1 to Leeds for the opening day of our season. Last night, Watford beat Norwich 3-2…Norwich the team that cruised to League One victory last season. Will we struggle or will our new signings in Baby Schmeichel, Baby Bruce, Lloyd Sam, Billy Paynter etc elevate us further? Time will tell.
Until we know…we’ll go through it all together…and we’ll have our ups and down…
