I’m up in Leeds this evening after watching The Mighty Whites at Elland Road in their opening game of the season against Norwich City.

I have very mixed reactions about the game today. The first half was poor. In their typical, frustrating fashion, Leeds would hoof the ball into the air, hoping and praying it reached a team mate who could perform something of more creativity. Although Leeds managed to take the lead, they were played off the field by Norwich.

The second half was much better. After a dodgy start, Leeds bossed the game, kept a clean sheet and fully deserved their victory and 3 points.

Stand out players for me included David Healy, Shaun Derry, new signing Seb Carole (who ever so nearly scored with his first touch) and my Man of the Match, Matthew Kilgallon. This kid WILL play for England one day. He must be the best centre back in the division. I hope and pray he stays. I will cry if he is sold.

Finally, I was reading the match day programme. They had a page on David Healy, asking him stupid questions about what he likes to do when he’s not playing football. Very much like what you would expect to read in a Smash Hits magazine. One question and answer amused me so much it caused me to start giggling to myself like a mad man in my seat.

“If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?”
I’d like to be a couple of inches bigger.

Some people will say that he is on about height. The immature child in me thinks differently.

Finally, here are a few photos I took from the game

The man on the right is in much need of a wig.
He may be wearing one in which case he is in much needs of a new one.

The Leeds youth players (ball boys). Hands off Chelsea!


The new season kicks off!


Believe it or not there was a game of football today.
Here’s a picture of some men playing it.


That’s what I like to see, the home side winning…
Unless it is at Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge

  • 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.
