Leeds United Latest - Salerno's Concrete Hypothesis

Cellino's best mate Nicola Salerno must have been reading Romeo & Juliet because, as oxymora go, his description of Leeds Disunited as a 'concrete hypothesis' has to be up there with any of the Bard's best!

Mind you, we could trot out any number of Shakespeare's very best and apply them to the once mighty club. "O brawling love! O loving hate!" could be applied equally to the 'vile animals' fan base or to the dirty dirty players of the Revie era.

'Feather of lead' resonates beautifully both with the club's dreams, which time and again fail to fly, and with a whole succession of owners who arrive promising gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh and, who, instead, deliver a far baser metal, Frankenstein monsters and mire. 

There is a cast of thousands qualifying for the titles of "honourable villain" or "fiend angelical', although David Haigh and Cellino seem to be the chief contenders at present!

"Dove feathered raven" is self explanatory given the kit; "sick health" sums up all the so called rescue packages; "Serious vanity" could have been coined for a club that crawled up its own arse in 1968 and hasn't climbed out since; and "misshapen chaos of well seeming forms" could describe either the team's tactics under a succession of failed managers, or the club's accounts under a whole succession of exploitative or incompetent owners!

The future under Cellino? How about 'bright smoke" (screen)?

But the one that best sums up the entire club?

No doubt about it, "Poor living corpse, clos'd in the dead Revie's tomb!"

  16. 'Serious vanity'
    And yet still jerk offs purporting to follow other clubs take time out to write articles about us, sometimes several times a day. Perhaps they should ask themselves if their club generates the same amount of international interest and if not, why not?

  19. That’s put a damper on it! The only Shakespeare we know up north is a block of flats in Burmantofts in Leeds. However there was an old bloke lived on the eleventh floor called Leo Tolstoy who saw West Ham play and told his mates, "not only did I feel no delight, but I felt an irresistible repulsion and tedium... Several times I saw West Ham, and I invariably underwent the same feelings: repulsion, weariness, and bewilderment”.

  23. Must have taken you sometime to trawl through the spotty teenagers book of basic Shakespeare quotes, looking for analogies to align them to our team....was probably tucked in between your trainspotters books! Keep it coming though. Is amusing.

Nothing gets past Massimo.so all those thinking of making a quick buck might as well do one now.For the first time in a long time we have an owner who will do what has to be done.Taking issues in order and sorting them out cos we have a lot of baggage tbh.The sun will eventually shine through the dark clouds once again.MOT
