Former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes was speaking to Talksport’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on Tuesday morning and the topic of Leeds United came up.

For Moyes, he was incredibly positive about the club, praising the fans and stating that ‘the Premier League’ needs us back owing to the support, but it garnered a strange reaction on social media as although people seemed to like, and agree with his words, plenty were also quick to point to the fact that we’ll be back in the top flight when we earn it across a season.

I can understand the sentiment really, especially as last year looked so positive for so long with our promotion chase under manager Marcelo Bielsa, but with the year ending with disappointment as we missed out on both automatic promotion and then the Play-Off route, whilst everyone hopes we will go one better this year with the experience under our belt, lofty expectations and assumptions don’t help anyone.

Plenty thought it was a bit of an overreaction, but as said, I can see the point given the criticism we take as a massive club, but not playing in the top tier – allied to the EFL’s reliance on us for the broadcasting deal.
