Leeds United and every other Football League club (apart from Southend and Southampton who played yesterday) will start their Carling Cup campaign this evening.

Leeds will face League One side Oldham Athletic at Elland Road. Leeds are the favourites and will probably win the game although nothing can be taken for granted in cup competitions.

The last three seasons have seen Leeds progress to the third round of the competition so it would be nice to see a better cup run this year especially with the new players at the club.

The opening few games haven’t always been the best quality football either. I was at the Huddersfield game last August and although Leeds won 1-0 it was a dire game.

Memories of losing to Sheffield United, losing to the Man Utd reserves and having to rely upon a last minute equalising goal from goalkeeper Paul Robinson to beat Swindon Town are all best forgotten about (although Robbo’s equaliser was a true magic moment).

Still, onwards and upwards, Marching on Together. We can win tonight. C’mon Leeds!

    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.
