All the signs are starting to appear positive, now it’s just a case of whether or not you believe them.
Having got off to such a tremendous start this season, Leeds find themselves top of the table with 40 points from 19 games, which should mean something rather exciting come the end of the season.
The podcast @LeedsThat pointed out that, in the last 5 seasons – only 1 in 10 of the teams automatically promoted, has had more points at this stage, so unless there is a dramatic drop off in terms of production at Elland Road, the Marcelo Bielsa’s men are well on course the finally make their way back to the Premier League.
We were in this sort of situation last year, when Leeds were top on Christmas Day and despite the statistics that favour those at the top at Christmas, but they couldn’t get the job done, so take it with a pinch of salt.
That’s what these fans did, as they were rather pessimistic about what a stat like that meant.
Stop it you jinxety jinx box

Means nothing. Leeds can break records for not going up like last years playoffs.

Similar to last seasons stat “only one team in the top 2 at Xmas hasn’t been promoted” stats meaningless #onegameatatime

Yeah ,every team top at Xmas has gone up…oh wait a minute 🙄 but a couple of quality additions in Jan plus keeping white and I can't see us making the same mistake …Hopefully. Mot!

Will Leeds get a better chance at promotion than this?
Do you believe in all these ‘jinxes’, or are you more optimistic?
