    LUFC = LUCK or what?

    Let's turn this situation around: if Leeds were (use your imagination) in contention for the Champions League finals do you think their chances of winning would be any different to now: down to anything other than luck?
    The differences between teams are a lot more marginal than most of us want to admit. Skills, tactics, fitness talent and strategy can be zeroed by bad reffing decisions, the ball hitting the post instead of the net, injury or just 'the rub of the green'.
    Luck is the vital element; and we can create or destroy it by embracing either the will to win or the fear of losing.
    Napoleon recruited his generals on the basis of how lucky they had been, rather than what was on their CV. Wisey has been lucky in the past and, at this stage, it would be smarter for us to invest is this and get behind him than rather than undermine him with our fear of the drop.
