OK I just about resisted the tempation to put my head in the oven on Sunday afternoon, but hey it's not that bad. Some of our posters (including me) think we would get mullered in the Premiership, but cannot think of a mechanism where we positively don't get promoted - perhaps now that is not so difficult. We can still go into the semis with some good play and a bit of luck. We are the France of the Championship - can beat anybody but sometimes don't show up. Lets hope we do show up, starting on Sunday, at the "correct" time of 3.oo p.m. and with no pesky Sky cameras in sight.
Onwards and upwards!
Only post on this message IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING POSITIVE TO SAY.

Got home early enough on Sunday to tidy up a bit in the garden. It's looking nice now.

Re: Positive comments only
all this depression is nothing a good win against bedford wont cure!

leeds need to believe in themselves, they are more than capable of beating anyone in the champ. we may get humped in the AP if we go up but what are we afraid of? so would everyone else

we need to turn up on sunday and make some noise

Saved a bit of money by not going to Long Bar, as I usually do at home matches.

Having had a few sharpeners in Woodies after the game I decided that instead of slaving away in the kitchen for two hours knocking Mother's Day lunch together I would take wife and offspring for a Chinese instead. A very good thing.

Lancaster should get the England job. Which can only be of benefit to us. Hopefully he'll have it tied into his contract about needing a prem side in Yorkshire. Here's hoping!!!!

Re: Positive comments only
Talking of Lancaster did anybody hear Graham Rowntree's ringing endorsement for him on R5 last night? When somebody such as the 'Wig' says that working with this squad is even better for him than the Lions then it's time to sit up and take notice!

Re: Positive comments only
want to be positive, we'll soon know which league we'll be in so don't need to invest in an expensive squad. Ohh and on a similar theme we should be able to kiss goodbye an expensive waste of money from the squad too- two big positives there.(Sm161)

Thanks, it made me laugh any way. I'll have another drink that makes me smile. I'm a happy drunk, its being sober that brings it crashing back down!

I think we are talking our way to a victory on Sunday. Whether you think you are going to lose or think you are going to win you're probably right!

From the Offy:

"The AudienceView solution intelligently offers customers added value tickets or products during the purchase process, resulting in increased revenue through up-selling and cross-selling. The teams can then use this transaction data to improve target marketing to enhance the online experience and, ultimately, increase the average revenue earned per customer."

Our worries are over!

Re: Positive comments only
I'm positive things could be worse, i also follow Leeds United and they were on the wrong end of their worst ever home defeat in the league on tuesday 3-7 and this was after conceeding only 2 goals in the previous 5 games. Sometimes things happen. We are after all only 80 minutes away from getting back on track By 4.45 on sunday afternoon we might have learned once and for all where we will be playing next season.

I will be disappointed if we don't go up but it isn't the end of the world and i will be again looking positively at next season.

I had a 3G Moby signal, IN DIGBY, the other day!

Granted it only lasted 2 mins, but all the same, I had a 3G signal!

Now that is positive!

Good result for Lotus F1 in Sepang great progress for the team and glad to see Fernando on the top step of podium again



Some say he has a Tykes flag with team signatures on.
Others say that he's doing the same to the Carnegie flag,
All we know is that he's called Leeds carnegie signed flag.
