Well then you get into the murky waters of club funding and it's really hard to say.

Both clubs can pack out a stadium for a big match so I'd say the local support is there.
Both stadium's are about average size for the Premier League as well.

I don't think either have a bearing on how a club performs in their first season, it's usually down to having the right manager, the right tactics and the right players.

Middlesboro are a good example, they came up last season, spend over 20 million in the transfer window and got totally smashed.

Yes Boro are a good example of how not to behave in the Premier. Perhaps part of their player problem is that they bought three of them from a crap and relegated Aston Villa and the Owls have two more of them.

Boro are exactly the same as Wednesday, even mi Boro mates round here said it, niether score enough goals, we have recently, but it does tend to dry up.

If one game sums up why a lot of people hate Leeds it has to be the FA Cup game against Colchester United
Colchester had the audacity to go 2-0 up, Leeds pulled one back but then Colchester made it 3-1.
After that the sheer brutality of the Leeds players was awful, they kicked anything that moved, horrible cynical fouls, sly digs, they just couldn't handle that little Colchester were going to beat them, but they did 3-2 in the end

Leeds United a nothing club, one famous quote I remember was from Gordon McQueen at the FA Cup Semi final v Man Utd at Hillsborough in 1977
"We were the Yorkshire club, but on all four sides of the ground it was just red and white, one journalist described it as a fried egg surrounded by tomato sauce"
