It’s All About Leeds United Tonight
Many years ago when football had only just started being played in colour on television Leeds United were the best team in the land. However, the side under manager Don Revie were unloved and Brian Clough was not a fan of how they played. In the 1991-92 season every one loved Leeds because they prevented Manchester United winning the last First Division title before the start of the Premier League era. The current LEEDS side are playing great football and can make it five wins in as many matches in all competitions by picking up three points at Swansea in the Championship and an away win is 11/8 with Ladbrokes.
Leeds have had 11 managers in five years and Marcelo Biesla is the current man in charge. His background is football in Argentina but he likes his side to play the beautiful game in a beautiful way. One of his former players is Mauricio Pochettino who has a similar philosophy about effective football. Swansea have made a solid start to the season in terms of points won but they have had a great deal of luck in remaining unbeaten in the Championship after three matches. An away win in tonight’s fixture would take LEEDS to the top of the table and the price of 9/2 with Betfair for the title would be cut because at the moment they are the best team.
It’s the final stages of qualifying for the Champions League this week but there are no representatives from Britain. The qualifying process for this season’s group stage seemed to begin before the end of last season. The top four teams in the Premier League qualify for the Holy Grain of European football. MANCHESTER CITY were scared out of the competition at the quarter-final stage by Liverpool last season. However, they are the ante post selection to be the champions of Europe for the first time and that outcome is 11/2 with bet365.
The wonderful four day York Ebor meeting begins tomorrow and the racing today is more about quantity than quality. There are six meetings in Britain and Ireland and the most lucrative only offers £79,000 in prize money. Hamilton has a competitive handicap over one mile and one furlong at 2.50pm. FALMOUTH LIGHT goes well fresh and the horse can win this race after an 80-day absence at 6/1 with Coral.
