The Reading Perspective

https://www.google.com/amp/s/thetilehurstend.sbnation.com/platform/amp/2019/3/15/18266179/reading-fc-0-3-leeds-united-the-alternative-view-royals

This is an article on the game written, I can only assume, by a Reading fan. It contains a lot of fairly reluctant praise for the way we played, and, I detect, a lot of bitterness about the result and the way it has been reported.

What stuck out to me was the assertion that this Leeds team was "40 million pounds and three years in the making" and how we were buying the league similar to Wolves last season. Now, I don't think this is accurate, but I wanted your thoughts.

Are we spending our way to promotion?

We have had the same core players for 3 years now. Jansson, Cooper, Phillips, Roofe, Ayling, Pablo, Berardi. Alioski and several others have been there for a couple of seasons. The 40 million Wolves model is laughable, we spent a lot on the christiansen side, Alioski, Saiz, Weidwald, Ekuban, Grot, Forshaw, Cibiki etc, this season we spent 13 million on 2 players although we sold 7 million Viera for that to happen.

Like you, I can't see why Reading and other fans sing anti Leeds songs and want us to do badly.

£40m!

We haven’t spent anything.
Wood 15m
Vieira 7m
Taylor 5m
Cook 6m
Byram 4m
McCormack 11m

There’s 48m incoming in past few seasons

I’d like to see the 90m we have apparently spent on this side.

The most hated club in the country according to a survey a couple of years ago

More people want us to get promoted, than liverpool winning the league.

That article is painfully bad, it's like what nobofleeds would write if he was a reading fan.

It's actually that bad

I don’t agree Mattyp
So many Mickey Mouse clubs hate Leeds United
I could give you examples from my life.
