With just six games to go in the Championship, it would take a minor miracle to ensure that Leeds United will not start the 2015/16 as a Championship club, again. The wait to return to the Premier League will soon tick over into its 12th year.

Having gone from the heights of reaching a Champions League semi final in the year 2000, the Whites have plummeted to the depths of League One and come back up as far as the second tier again.

The Elland Road will one day return to the Premier League, you can have no doubts about that, and when you do - they will look on the time from 2004 until however long it take as their darkest days.

Takeover talks

News that Red Bull are at an advanced stage of talkover talks will surely lift the spirits of the fans who have been forced to suffer so long. If they can do it in Formula One, surely Red Bull can give Leeds the wings for a revival. 

It has been a horrible time for the fans, but they have certainly had some great talents in the lower leagues.

Who have been the brightest sparks in that time though? Take a look at my best XI and decide whether you agree with me.
