Leeds United have been promoted back in to the Premier League after 16 years, which means they will once again be playing Man Utd.

The Leeds v Man Utd games are like a war zone.

Sorry to hear about the recent death of former Leed's players Jackie Charlton and Norman Hunter both of whom came from the North East of England.

Quality club with a large following...I’m glad they’re making it back to the PL and hope they’re able to stay up for awhile. I’m a West Ham fan and cautiously optimistic they’ve avoided relegation for now, though some long term changes will be necessary to right the ship.

The Hammers need rid of David Moyes.

Moyes has been crap since leaving Everton, the Man United fans couldn't wait to get rid of Moyes and Moyes left a mess at Sunderland.

As for Leeds I wish them well, and just hope that not too many people are injured in the Leeds v Man Utd fixtures.

I thought Pellegrini would have been the difference at West Ham, unfortunately that did not work out either

Will see what Leeds can do, have been impressed with Bielsa, who just got a street named after him in Leeds. Leeds-Man Utd will be interesting to say the least. More interesting is who gets the other auto bid up, Brentford have Barnsley who's at the bottom, West Brom have QPR, so I favor Brentford to move up. Fulham grabbed a win over Sheffield Wednesday and they're right there too.

watching West Ham v Watford was weird. I saw a completely different side of West Ham again after seeing that urgency at Norwich and vs Chelsea. If only they could replicate that earlier in the season. I agree Moyes needs to go but West Ham have not had stability at manager for the past few years now.

Not to take the thread off-track, but it seems the problem runs much deeper than Moyes. WHU is one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world, so they really have no excuses for what happened:

How much of the "value" stems from the stadium deal? Relegation can have a continuing impact on club finances. Some clubs sink like a stone.

i grew up an Arsenal fan and absolutely hated the Leeds teams of the 70s, the likes of Bremner, Hunter used to in my opinion play a dirty game. Admired Johnny Giles though he had talent

it looks like Bournemouth are doomed after a cruel L to Southampton. They need Watford to lose big to both City and Arsenal and beat Everton. There won't be that many small clubs in the Prem next season.
