Championship “Rule of 17” should give Leeds fans hope.
Rule of 17 time in the Championship. If this year follows the others, at least 2 of the current top 6 will get promoted (13/14 seasons), at least 1 of the top 3 (14/14 seasons), likely 2 of the top 3 (11/14 seasons). Half the time all 3 have been in the top 6 at this stage (7/14)— Mark Thompson (@SkyNewsThompson) November 11, 2018
17 matches into the season, and Leeds are in third place on 30 points, one point behind 2nd place Middlesbrough and three points behind Norwich City.
Leeds already beat Norwich at Carrow Road this season and have drawn against Boro, meaning that despite the two losses in the last five games, Leeds are still well positioned to achieve promotion this season.
