But, but.... they're a BIG club, aren't they...??

Be nice to have proper big clubs like Newcastle and Dirty Leeds back up in the PL again soon... I miss the enjoyment of seeing United ramming their bleating obscenities back down their Yorkshire gubs at Bellend Road every season... really hope Monk brings them back up this year, it's been too long.

I don't mind Newcastle. They are the big regional club in the Premier League in my opinion.

Leeds United got what they deserved and I've loved every moment of their ongoing demise. It goes back to an incident I had with a Leeds fan on a Magic Bus on the Oxford Rd in Manchester back in 1999. That following week Darren Anderton and Ginola put them to the sword in a cup game and the club has been cursed into damnation ever since.

Does anyone actually like Leeds? They used to think they were a massive club in the O'Dreary days, when they truly weren't. Peter Risdale is a horrible man, and it's a shame he's still allowed to play a role in football.

That said, I used to love Tony Yeboah.

Yes.

For some years they were well known as "Dirty Leeds".

Bowyer and Woodgate were heavily involved in a mob that performed a racist attack off the pitch as well.

Take your pick Chelsea, Fulham, QPR, Brentford even Tottenham. First Div ! game I ever went to was at White Hart Land. 1950-51 season.

Back then winning the FA Cup was bigger than winning the league.

The thread is about the Premier League. Apples and Oranges. Having been in the US for several decades, I haven't a clue if they exist.
It's only in the last few years we have been able to see PL games for Christ sake. I'm from the Div 1 era.

I didn't know he worked at Spurs but have recollections of his playing career.

A lot of praise from the football world for the man mountain.
