Leeds United fans debate the current reputation of their club

Leeds United fans have given their thoughts on the way the club is perceived across a number of areas.

Leeds United fans reacted when a list compiled by the Daily Mail showed them as the 13th ranked club in terms of the biggest teams in the Premier League and Football League.

Leeds have one of the biggest support bases in the country and regularly attract massive crowds for every home game, with Neil Redfearn’s team well supported on the road in every away match.

There’s plenty to be positive about for Redfearn, the supporters and the club even if the side’s position on the table does seem a bit low.

Redfearn has created a competitive environment for his young side to improve in and they are well supported and backed up by the fans who follow the club everywhere.

With the side now stabilised in the Championship and away from the threat of getting drawn into a battle near the bottom of the table, the challenge for the boss will be looking ahead to next season.

Providing he gets a new contract, the main aim for the boss next season will be to challenge for promotion and considering the strength of the youth ranks, if the club adds well over the summer, that’s a very achievable aim.

Here’s what HITC readers had to say about the club’s position on the list.

LeedsLad: The position of Leeds is unrealistically low - Leeds remain a remarkably big club. Their "fan base" is far higher than the 23rd ranking

Danzo: Someone clearly has no clue, or most likely purposely put Leeds in the Crowds and Global Fanbase positions to wind people up. According to this, Stoke, Sunderland, West Brom, Southampton and others have a larger Global Fanbase than Leeds? Never seen such nonsense

Counte of monte fisto: Utter garbage all made up with minimal reality applied

Henrymouni: Forest & Leeds should be up near the top.

Fanbase - Leeds must be in the top 5. They are all over the place!!

Aclarke72: Crowds / Leeds 14 / Sheff Wed 12. Which doesn't take into consideration ticket prices - Just imagine if Leeds did a £10 and £5 game you'd be talking 30,000 plus. I'm guessing Wednesday's game against Charlton will see approx 21,000
