I have no idea what is going on at Leeds United at the moment. I got back from work this evening to learn that they have just signed Richard Cresswell from Preston North End for £1.15million. This is in the same summer as spending big money on Rob Hulse, Robbie Blake & Daniel Harding as well as bringing in Ian Bennett, Rui Manuel Marques, Steve Stone and Eddie Lewis as freebies and Jonathan Douglas on a season long loan.

Premiership, here we come!

Where on earth are they getting the money from? Not only to make these singings but to pay the players? It is only 7 months ago that Leeds were under the old board and with massive debts about to go out of business all together, now we are behaving like the Chelsea of the Championship!

There have been rumours circulating that quality striker David Healy will be sold as something has gone on behind closed doors leaving the Northern Ireland International unhappy. Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell has denied this and today said that Healy would be staying. Although I have heard statements like that in the past which have turned out to be lies I tend to believe the manager this time.

Cresswell is a quality striker, he banged in 16 league goals for Preston last season and was a massive part of them reaching The Championship Play Off Final. Hopefully he will do wonders for Leeds as well.

Blackwell seems to like playing a burly striker (like Hulse or Ricketts) alongside a small, fast paced striker (like Healy or Blake). Cresswell is a strong, well built striker so should fit in well, maybe it’ll spell the end of Ricketts’ Leeds career. If any of the Leeds strikers are to leave I would certainly favour Ricketts (actually Ian Moore but I dunno what’s happened to him at the moment).

Hopefully Cresswell will prove a brilliant signing and maybe with this mysterious, new found wealth Leeds fans should start singing the Chelsea favourite

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
