In a recent conversation with Match of the Day’s Facebook page, former Newcastle and England striker Alan Shearer stated that he would want Leeds United to gain promotion to the Premier League alongside Newcastle United this season.
The two sides will meet this Sunday in what is expected to be a hard-fought encounter. Both are on top form currently and if this continues, one could actually expect to see them lining up against each other in the Premier League next season.
Shearer’s reasoning is that Leeds is currently one of the biggest sides in the Championship in terms of stature and their supporters deserve to have their loyalty rewarded, given they stuck with the fans through thick and thin.
