LUFC - What does the future hold for Leeds?

Vital Leeds member Yorkshirepride1 has been putting his thinking cap on and wondering what the future holds for Leeds and the football clubs in general.

Thinking about the future of football in general after the recent madness in the Premier League brings me to the question, how far will Leeds be allowed to go and what can we realistically expect for the future?

Manchester City is now the richest club in football, Man United soon to be the second biggest club in Manchester (that sounds good!)...Chelsea has endless pots of money. Arsenal, Liverpool and a couple of other can compete....but where is it all leading?

Will we have a super League with six clubs that play each other two or three times a season?
Perhaps a European super League making it hard for fans to go to games?
Should there be some sort of Transfer limit so all clubs have a fair chance of attracting top players? If that happens then there needs to be a salary cap too because as Leeds fans we know money talks!

What of the smaller clubs?
Do we as a club rebuilding from our gigantic debts and stupid mismanagement have to settle as a breeding ground for players, bringing through new talent just for the money men to snatch them away?
Once we make our way into the top flight (as I`m sure we will), do we then decide that mid table is our only option as falling into the Risdale way of snapping up million pound players is not an option?

As fans do we have to accept that Premier League mid table is as far as it can go?
Or do we hope that by the time we get there some sort of sense has prevailed and we can compete on a level playing field without mounting up massive debts again?
Another scenario is that the money men start to get bored and pull the plug, leaving your Chelsea`s, Man City`s and Co in real trouble.
Imagine them spiralling down like we did....be some big names in League One then!

Maybe we find a billionaire to have our club as a play thing too, would we want that?
Personally I`d be happy to make it to the Premier without a major investor, doing it with our own young players, loyal players like Delph who ignore the calling of money. Mid table may be our best hope for the future but at least we would know we did it the right way.
What are your thoughts and hopes for the future?
