Shambolic

20070504_leeds So, Leeds United's relegation was confirmed yesterday.

They went into administration which means a ten point deduction, leaving them bottom of the Championship. The glimmer of hope that they would somehow win 6-0 or something like that at Derby, whilst Hull were heavily defeated elsewhere, is gone.

Declaring administration now is a fairly transparent ploy to avoid having to do it in the summer and therefore starting next season in Division Three on minus ten points.

Of course, should the results go the way Leeds needed to avoid relegation later today, it will look a pretty stupid gamble. Either way, it is a terrible end to a torrid season, which wasn't helped by the embarassing pitch invasion at Elland Road last week.

Danny Mills, who made an excellent appearance on Fighting Talk earlier this year, wrote a piece about the decline of Leeds in the Daily Mail this week.

Still, I did get some football cheer this week.

The Spanish team I support, RCD Espanyol, are through to the UEFA Cup final, which this year is being held in Glasgow.
