Things will be bad if Leeds are relegated How bad for Leeds was relegation?
Being relegated was very bad for Leeds, as it means they will get a lot less money than if they'd stayed in the Premiership.

And not just a little bit less, being in The Championship (the new name for Division One) could cost the club as much as 20m.

They're now building a new team to replace the players who have left the club, but they're not as good as the ones aho have left.

But that's not completely a bad thing, as the new players will be earning much less money than the internationals whose places they are taking.

They are also more likely to be able to cope with life in The Championship, as new boss Kevin Blackwell sensibly bringing in players from the lower leagues.
