As regular readers of my blog will know, I am a supporter of two football teams – Bath City and Leeds United.

Leeds, lead by Saint Simon Grayson (The Football God) had a fabulous start to the season, looking like they would be Champions by Easter. It is now March and chocolate eggs line the supermarket shelves. Yet, the silver-wear of the much sought-after League One trophy/cup/beaker couldn’t be further away from Elland Road.

Saint Simon Grayson’s angelic players are still in the automatic promotion places – just. They are desperately hanging on by their over-gnawed fingernails and are in grave danger of falling into the Play Offs – a place I would hate to see them finish, simply because of past-seasons encounters in them. Leeds’ record in The Football League Play Offs is, in fact, more painful than the whole of Jewish history… OK, maybe that was going a tad too far, although it has been pretty bleak!

In sharp contrast, my other team, Bath City, started the season poorly and had very little chance of success. Now, however, with just 11 games remaining, they find themselves comfortably in a Play Off position and in the best form since they won the league in 2007.

I know I will probably jinx my beloved City with this blog, but I really believe they have an excellent chance of ending this season on a real high and even playing in the Blue Square Premier next season.

Hopefully champagne, or rather cider, will be flowing come May, when Leeds win the league (or simply come second!) and Bath City triumph, winning promotion themselves.

    The cider will most certainly be flowing if Liverpool stay unbeaten at home for the rest 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.
