Bookies favourites...

for a reason.
- continuity and stability in the coaching side of things, with Corberan and Bielsa to build on their experience and learning from last season
- key players coming into their second season at Leeds - remember how much McCormack, Wood and Roofe improved? I'm really looking forward to seeing what Bamford, Roberts, Forshaw and Douglas will bring to the team next season
- Excellent nucleus of young players coming through from the u23's - Bogusz, Shackleton, Edmondson, Clarke will all play at some stage - and Wilks will surely stay with us next season
Yes, there are gaps to be filled, but if we get it right, we can power our way out of this division. Let's cut down on the drama and quietly go about our business.

I think both would be used out wide. Playing on the right is where Wilks has been so effective for Donny this season.

Like the look of Wilks and hope he gets a chance

I too like the look of Wilks and to be fair don't really think Grot got a fair chance the season before last.
You can almost see what Radz was going on about when he said we would be concentrating on the loan market and the talent already at the club.

I watched Donny in the play-offs and thought Wilks was pretty good when he was on the ball. He provided the assist for the equaliser in the second game and looked a handful for the defence. He's nowhere near the finished product, but if Bielsa works his magic, I can see him becoming as important to us next season as Roberts is now.

It's a huge pre season for Wilkes.a real chance to muscle his way into Bielsa's plans. The lad clearly has some ability but we might see how much he wants it now.

I’d imagine we’d naturally have good odds, coupled with loads of people putting cash on us would be much more likely to be the reason

not sure the bookies offer much insight to be fair.. we're likely favorites because Leeds fans slap a load of money on us

bookies just play the numbers, they're model is maths, nothing more

...and they did have us in the running for relegation last season.

They actually had us to scrape into the top 6. I remember thinking the odds on skybet on us to miss out on the top 6 were worth taking based on our pre season performances and lack of change in the squad.

Spanish, bookies odds compilers need to be excellent otherwise they would go bankrupt.
Of course they get things wrong with their initial process and will get hammered.
Fortunately for them they have many mug punters.
Based on some of the comments on here it could be them, SKB is the exception.
