Leeds played Watford today and lost 4-1. Reading the online match report, a quote jumped out at me. “I thought we came here and did a very, very good job”.

Given the fact Watford had just thrashed Leeds by four goals to one, anybody of sound body and mind would naturally assume these were the words of someone connected to Watford Football Club, most likely their manager. You wouldn’t blame the Watford boss for saying such a quote either. To beat any team 4-1, you would have indeed had to of done “a very, very good job”

You may be wondering why, as a Leeds United supporter, I am bothering to blog about the words of the opposition manager. You would be right to wonder that, except for the fact the man responsible for the above quote was not the Watford manager, nor were they from an employee of the club, a fan, or anyone connected to Watford Football Club whatsoever. The man who thought his team did “a very, very good job” was none other than Dave Hockaday, the coach of Leeds United. That’s right, LEEDS UNITED – the team who LOST 4-1! Don’t believe me? Here’s the proof.

Errr, Dave… You do realise you LOST?

How the hell Mr Hockaday feels he can justify making such a ridiculous statement is beyond me. I can only assume he is insane and believes it was his team that won 4-1. Being a modern day organisation, Leeds United Football Club is almost certainly an equal opportunities employer, and I would support this. However, there is a limit, and when that limit involves the head coach of the football club thinking that his own team getting raped by the opposition is “a very, very good job”, then it’s time to go back to wherever he came from. Incidentally, in Dave Hockaday’s case, it’s the dole office, after he was sacked by non-league Forest Green Rovers, ten months ago.

Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it is OK to completely fuck up at what you’re paid to do. If that is the case, please, somebody correct me, as I will go into work, after the Bank Holiday weekend, smash up all the computers, urinate into the water dispenser before curling up into a ball and having a nap under the desk. Presumably, in Dave Hockday’s eyes, that is doing “a very, very good job”?

    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.
