This afternoon I went to Cheltenham Town Football Club. Had I been going a few years ago, I would probably have been watching Bath City play; instead, as things are nowadays, I was sadly watching Leeds United.

Whaddon Park, Cheltenham’s ground, is very small, so I wasn’t able to get tickets in the away end. Instead I bravely entered the lions den and stood alongside the home supporters. They quickly realised I was a Leeds fan, and I quickly realised that I wasn’t the only one. I would say 40% of the ground was full of Leeds supporters from up and down the country.

The Cheltenham fans I met were very commendable and a credit to their club. We had some friendly banter and discussed both Leeds and Bath City, both of which they were very complimentary about.

Anyway, back to the game (something I have been trying to avoid). Despite totally dominating the game, Leeds lost 1-0 to a late Cheltenham goal. Gutting. Still, I will disagree with anyone who says Cheltenham didn’t deserve their win. They had their chance, and they took it; unlike Leeds.

I still believe that Leeds will win the league – it is just a shame I wasn’t there to see them score a goal or win a match.

Here’s some pictures from the game.

The old bill realise there may be Leeds fans in the home end, and immediately predict trouble… there wasn’t any


Dennis Wise. I cannot see his face, but I am sure his eyes are wobbling

    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.
