Mick Quinn makes bold claim about Leeds, prestigious PL duo shunned
By Danny Wright
Former Newcastle striker Mick Quinn has boldly claimed that Leeds as a bigger club than Premier League duo Everton and West Ham.
The 55-year-old was handed a list of clubs to choose between who is seen as big and small, and aimed a brutal dig in the direction of the two prestigious top-flight clubs thanks to his decision.
Despite languishing in the Championship, Quinn singled out Leeds, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa as bigger sides while his beloved Newcastle also makes the cut after sealing their return to the top-flight with the title.
Although Forest and Leeds have recently been in League One, their fans will no doubt love the fact that the ex-Portsmouth player has shunned the likes of Everton and West Ham.
TalkSport host Alan Brazil asked Quinn to decide “are they big or small?” He then shared the results by posting a picture on his Sports Breakfast Twitter account on Tuesday.

Everton have won a huge amount of domestic honours in their 139 year history, as well as being one of the founding members of the Football League.
The Merseyside club have been champions of England on nine occasions, lifted five FA Cups and the 1984/85 European Cup Winners’ Cup.
West Ham haven’t had anywhere near the success of the Toffees but have still won three FA Cups and provided a great deal of talent to the English game from their highly successful academy.
Many credit the Hammers with helping England win the 1966 World Cup due to the high number of players in the legendary squad, including Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst.
Leeds have won the FA Cup just once and their three league titles pale in comparison to Everton’s haul.
In other Leeds news, Garry Monk has reportedly been left gobsmacked by the conduct of his players.
