Sweet Sixteen: Life in the void with Leeds Unite‪d‬ The Football Pink Podcast

    • Sports

If a baby had been born in Leeds on the day the local football team was relegated from the English top flight in 2004, they could have been legally married by the time they saw Leeds United back in the top flight. Admittedly, they wouldn't have had long to plan their wedding, and it would be a bit pricey for a 16 year old to pay for nuptials in the peak summer wedding season - but you get the drift. In the time Leeds spent out of the top flight, our hypothetical Yorkshire bairn would have gotten old enough to drive a moped, joined the armed forces, buy a lottery ticket and witness five General elections. Now that the Yorkshire giants are finally back in the top flight, host Roddy Cairns (@RoddyGCairns) is joined by Matt Abbott (@MattAbbottPoet) and Matt Leslie (@Matt_Leslie96) to ask the question on everyone's lips - what took you so long?
