For anyone who has a qualms or pangs of conscience about promoting without having to play out the games just pop over to Youtube and search the Leeds vs West Brom game from April 1971.

If that isn't enough fast forward to Paris 1975.

Those teams were denied the reward due to them because of ineptitude which led to injustice.

Or even look at this season.
Millwall Berras Red and the Penalty. Red overturned retrospectively but Leeds still lost the game.
Fulham Softest penalty in the history of the game
QPR " the sun glare of the sun meant the linesman couldn't see"



So the sooner the powers that be scrap this season, effect promotion and relegation the better.
Ian, History is littered with Leeds being screwed over.

Raul's hand ball

Bowyers suspension in the Champions League

Kewells transfer with unlicenced agent at 2m, which went to Kewell

Istanbul

Leeds 10 point deduction for going into admin, then a further 15 points for acting improperly whilst in admin.

These are just a few things

I wasn't aware he was injured. He should have got out on loan to get first team experience just like what we did with Beckford when we signed him. We sent him on loan to Carlisle I believe. Their fans must hate us as much as MU

Add to that & Ian's injustices

Ahh the old two wrongs to make a right theory ...If we can't play football again then a weighted PPG including SOS and venue. Plus IIRC Fulham like us have struggled v lower quality teams so I'd imagine a tough run in would have suited them plus if they beat us and Brom that really closes gaps...lets not be so arrogant to assume they couldn't ...

Without Mitrovic they would be halfway down the league.

Chatting with my accountant/Fuham fan last week, he doesn't think the cottagers are ready for a return to the premiership yet, also said they have rode their luck a few times this season however from what he has seen he does think Leeds (in particular) & West Brom are the two best sides in the championship
