As Blackpool leave Cardiff City behind and head for the Premier League, thoughts turn to the remaining place in the Championship which will be filled by either Millwall or Swindon next weekend. For Leeds United fans around the world, the play-offs hold some sad memories, and it was with that in mind, we started 2009-10 determined to do it the easy way (at least that was the plan anyway!)

Next year however, it’s an entirely different situation. In a league featuring some much larger teams with a lot more financial clout than League One, Leeds are no longer an enormous fish in an ornamental garden pond.

It was with the above in mind I opened a new TSS poll to see what Leeds United fans thought was a realistic target next season. After Leicester’s successful season finishing in the play-off places and despite the parachute payments afforded to those exiting the Premier League, 57% of you thought the top six was a realistic target.

Almost 1700 people voted, and the largest single selection was the dreaded play-offs. Three failed play-off challenges in four years sandwiched between relegation to England’s third tier means most Leeds United fans have anxiety attacks at the thought of another play-off attempt, but be that as it may, the majority of you seem to think it’ll be our fate.
