Had a gift left on my doorstep yesterday from Leeds United and what a gift it was! It must have been worth anything up to £2! They have really exceeded themselves!

I was sent the gift as I became a “Leeds United Club Member” back in the summer for £30. Club members are able to purchase tickets for away games which is why I signed and paid up, hoping to go to Reading, Southampton and Plymouth this year (hopefully amongst others). The gift from Leeds was a bonus and probably the only way they could possibly justify the £30 membership fee.

Needless to say the gift wasn’t great, a box of crap probably made in China, Taiwan or somewhere similar in a factory where the workers get paid a dollar a day…. “allegedly” (for legal reasons!).

The pack included –

A drinks bottle – more like a hip flask. Leeds fans may find this useful for sneaking alcohol into the ground.

A cap – cheap and nasty, will be appreciated by the chav fans.

A card holder – supposed to hold your credit and debit cards. I think mine is faulty as there is no slot in it!

Mobile phone holder – My Nokia 6230 falls over when placed inside. Holds the Sky+ remote well though.

Sticker – similar to one you would get from the dentist as a kid. Stick it on your lunch box.

Tri-Wrist Band – 3 rubber wrist bands consisting of Leeds colours looped together. Not great but not awful.

Key Ring & Badge – decent enough, probably the only thing of value.

All were in a chocolate box style container, surprised that the club didn’t try promoting this as one of the gifts, certainly better than the crap cap. Basically all a load of tack. I’ll enjoy the away games though!

Most importantly though Super Leeds won yesterday, Rob Hulse first half hat trick against Derby. 6th in the league with a game in hand. C’mon!

  • About Me

    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.
