I started this personal blog/website 16 years ago. In fact, my first post was exactly six days before Leeds United were relegated from the Premiership on 2 May 2004.

Just over 16 years later, and Leeds have finally been promoted again to the top-flight of English football – the land of milk and honey.

You may have thought that during all of that time blogging and waiting for Leeds to get back to where they belong, I would have come up with an incredible post to celebrate my team’s achievement. A literary masterpiece, that would be published and republished on an international scale. Retired football players would coo over my words, while members of the current Leeds squad send their love and appreciation for my kind words about them.

I am not ashamed to admit that I have not prepared any such blog post. There are two main reasons for this…

  • I am superstitious, so by writing a post congratulating Leeds on promotion, before they had finished the job would be just asking for trouble!
  • Given the importance of my club’s achievement, I thought it best to express my feelings onto my blog once the goal had been met.

The trouble is, that now Leeds have done what I have been waiting 5,920 days for them to do, I don’t know how to feel. It is if this is not real.

I am sure over the weekend, reality and joy will kick in and I’ll end up annoying any readers I have left with below-par Leeds content and rubbish attempts at humour.

Enjoy the quiet while it lasts…

  • 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.
