Leeds travelled to Millwall today where they won 1-0 from a injury time David Healy goal. It’s always good to snatch a winner so late on in the game. This was indeed Leeds’ 3rd consecutive league victory, the last time they strung as many league wins together was almost three years ago when Terry Venables was in charge. I’ve made another montage of the game which can be downloaded here.

The game was overshadowed by a small minority of idiotic Leeds fans who failed to observe the minutes silence for George Best who died yesterday. Best was of course a Manchester United legend so with the history between Leeds and ManU a negative reaction from some fans was always inevitable although certainly not excusable.

There were also reports of booing during the silence at the Manchester City – Liverpool game, both teams are big rivals of ManU. There was also trouble at the match between Wigan and Tottenham.

While I am a die hard Leeds fan who doesn’t really like ManU or their players I do respect the greats like George Best and was saddened by the small minority today, however I feel these minutes silences for football legends are a bad idea. In a crowd of 20-60,000 there will always be a small cluster of idiotic fans that dislike the deceased player and will do their utmost to ruin the remembrance.

For future circumstances, when other deceased football legends after remembered fans should be encouraged to applaud their life. Therefore any morons who decide to boo or shout abuse will be drowned out by the majority of fans who show respect through clapping. This is very common in Scotland and was also demonstrated during the game between Wolves and Southampton today.

Still, well done to Leeds today, marching up the table and with Sheffield United losing 4-2 to Leicester and strong rumours that their manager Neil Warnock is leaving for Portsmouth it seems that The Mighty Whites may even finish above the Blunted Blades come the end of the season.

    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.
