Leeds give fans cause for optimism - Rob Smyth

Copy from Football Unlimited of 04/04/2005.

The fast-food culture clogging modern society has infused the British football fraternity with an obsession with the here and now: one game at a time, possession traded like stickers in a playground in pursuit of an immediate adrenalin rush, managers asphyxiated by expectation to supply instant results. Yet for Leeds and Wolves, who extinguished the dying embers of each others' play-off hopes on Saturday, it is all about sowing seeds that may not come to fruition until May 2006.

"Next season is definitely on the manager's mind," said the Leeds No2 Sam Ellis of Kevin Blackwell's decision to road-test a 4-2-3-1 formation. "Today was an experiment; no doubt about that. It's exciting for us to be able to play different ways. The manager has had a meeting with the chairman about transfer targets and things are looking positive."

Positive was a word Ellis could not stop using, and it captured the mood on a balmy afternoon at Elland Road. The match itself may have been one long siesta but the hopes of Leeds fans have awoken again: they are over the trauma caused by crippling debt and a proactive management team are giving hope for a bright future. These days, the glass is emphatically half-full.
