Re: ALL NEW 49ERS ERA LEEDS UTD THREAD : Thu Apr 18, 2024 7:34 am  
If Leeds don't go up this time it could be a long time in the wilderness unless the 49's are prepared to throw a money at it.

They just need a run of the ball and some 50/50 decisions to go their way. They have shown they have the ability to beat all the teams in the league - Southampton apart. Farke needs to show some bottle stick to tried and tested and deliver.

Watching the PL the skill level and speed at which these skills are delivered is on a different planet to the Championship. It is no surprise that the bottom 3 in the PL were the top 3 in the Championship and almost visa versa the previous year. I suppose its quality over competitiveness. It must be more seeing your team win the majority of their games than losing the majority.

Agree with all of that, unfortunately the big money is in the premier league. That’s what the American investors have in mind. Unfortunately if we don’t achieve promotion, we may suffer losing some decent players.


Yeah agree. we have to be up there, the club has spent best part of 2 decades outside the premier league and it needs to change. I am sure it will as the new owners seem to be very sharp. feels like a well run club now with a lot of financial clout.

Conversation for another day but probably 2 of Summerville, Gnonto, Rutter would be sold. I think there's no way Summerville stays as i think a good premier league club will pay good money for him. Be a crying shame as we could build around him in the Prem... but of course this is all hypothetical as hopefully we won't need to :)

They've 2 seasons to go back up before serious financial restrictions will apply making it very difficult. No need to panic this season if we don't go up but obviously makes it that bit harder next year, having said that, the teams coming down aren't as financially strong at Leicester Southampton or Leeds so you could argue the quality won't be as high at the top end

the 49ers will be the 6th richest owner in the PL.
but aren't allowed to spend it!
the top clubs looking out for themselves. there will never be another jack walker team winning anything. very sad really

If they don't go up there will be key players leaving which will make the task harder. Hopefully they can win the last three games and that should be sufficient. Burnley and Sheffield Utd will be no pushovers - Luton will be an interesting team to watch will they be another Wimbledon?

Thats where the current PSR rules aren't fit for purpose. They are being abolished but need to help clubs have a crack at the top clubs when they can afford to.

Here`s one for discussion chaps.
If we were to get promoted with all our current squad i.e nobody sold.
How many do we think are PL quality?
Re: ALL NEW 49ERS ERA LEEDS UTD THREAD : Thu Apr 18, 2024 3:14 pm  
amadou
gray
summerville
Anthony
possibly rodon. positioning is awful but his pace gets him out of trouble.
gnonto

and that's it I think.

5 quality players needed.
GK
LB
CM
CM
CF

9 points would guarantee promotion but I think as little as 4 could do it if results go right
