A minute before half-time and Leeds are 2-0 up on aggregate and cruising to the Play-Off Final and a possible £200m promotion when this happens...

Are you studying French in your spare time, Cobra?  ;)  

Leeds doing what they seem to do better than most clubs....screwing up their chances to get back up. Already blew a big lead in the automatic promotion places, for the umpteenth time, it seems.

It's surprising how often mixups like that happen at very high levels, in big games....players at our level probably feel a touch of relief when they see that kind of communication problem. Probably worse than any of our current season howlers....maybe apart from the opening day :o

Any notable goal in the world of football pops up about 30 seconds later on Reddit. Quite often though the language is foreign.

Leeds have been a troubled club for some time. It's strange to think that Dundee played Leeds in a major European semi-final at one point. Both sets of fans back then would struggle to believe where their team has ended up.

Yes, having been at both legs (mystery 'bug' absence from school for away leg ;0) I used to pay attention to Leeds long after those years, and often thought that allowing for the vast difference in resources, there were a few parallels....and both were ultimately undone by excessive borrowing to fund overpriced squads.

But, in reality, there are a lot of what were big clubs in the heavy-industry decades, who have struggled in the last 30+ years, for a variety of reasons.
