Feels Like An Opportunity Missed - Rory Smith

Last updated : 01 June 2024 By .

New York Times football correspondent Rory Smith has been discussing the competitiveness of the Championship next season after Leeds missed out on Promotion on BBC Radio 5 Live's Monday Night Club:

"Leeds will expect to lose [Crysencio] Summerville, [Wilfried] Gnonto. They'll do all they can to hold on to Archie Gray, but that might be quite tricky. Even Georginio Rutter possibly might go.

"The saving grace is that the three teams that are coming down don't look like they'll necessarily be perfectly placed to go straight back up.

"It feels like it might be a little bit more of a traditional Championship next season and that would would play into the hands of Leeds.

"But it feels like an opportunity missed because they had the individual talent on the pitch that you felt might be decisive."
