Season Preview – Leeds have seen somewhat of a plummet in the last 10 years, after being one of Europe’s most dominant forces. They were relegated in 2004 after 14 years in the top flight.
Financial difficulties and point deductions then lead to them being relegated to League One for the first time in 2007. They did however regain promotion to the Championship in 2010 under Simon Grayson.
Despite having some good talent in midfield with the likes of Max Gradel and Jonny Howson, they still lack a little in defence and upfront that could falter them when pushing for the play-offs this season.
My Prediction – 11th
