I’m now back from Elland Road after watching Super Leeds United win 1-0. A nice way to end the last home league game of the season.

The game was a little frustrating, Leeds had so much of the possession, Crewe weren’t in it but The Whites simply couldn’t get the damn ball in the back of the net. They did try however and that pleased me, hard work and commitment is all I ask from my team.

In the second half ex-England international Steve Stone came on. Poor Stoney has been out all season with a nasty injury which has been a major blow for Leeds, after all he is a very good player. When he came running on the crowd really got going and their enthusiasm rubbed off on the players. It wasn’t long until David Healy slammed home the winner. 1-0. Everyone went mental.

Full time came and the stewards became very wary of a pitch invasion. Last year 15,000+ fans ran onto the pitch which did not impress the grounds men. It is important this year that the pitch is kept in good order as there is still one more game to play on it, the Play Off semi final next month.

Luckily most of the fans behaved themselves and remained in the stands. A few morons ran on but were rugby tackled to the floor and dragged into the slums of Elland Road, probably to be strapped down and farted on by Michael Ricketts.

The players and managerial staff did a lap of honour, walking around the pitch applauding the fans and receiving praise in return. All in all a nice end to a decent game. Roll on the Play Offs…

  • 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.
