… Garry’s gone 🙁

It’s never easy being a Leeds fan.

There is only one man who can save us now…

Leeds United have picked the worst possible time to start playing crap. After a season of success and competing in the play off positions, they’ve started losing games. Yesterday afternoon, Leeds lost at home to Wolves. They are now outside the play offs, for the first time in months. There’s only three games left. Don’t do this to me, Leeds!

I support two football teams. Yes, I am committing the cardinal football sin. My crime is just one step away from changing sides, because your team is doing crap; or worse, becoming a Manchester United fan, when you live in Middlesex.

I have reason to support two clubs. I was born in York. I am therefore an exiled Yorkshireman. Leeds United is my “big team”, and because of my past, I have good reason to follow them. My second club is Bath City. I live in Bath. It should be the football law that you support your local side.

An unlikely event happened on Saturday. Both Leeds and Bath City won. Not only did they win, but they destroyed their opposition. Leeds beat Preston 3-0, while Bath travelled to deepest, darkest Essex and pummelled Concord Rangers 5-0. An amazing turnaround, considering City lost 5-1 at home the previous week!

Who knows what’ll happen to my beloved clubs next weekend. I suspect both will lose. Managers and players of Newcastle United and East Thurrock must be licking their lips.

Part of my recent autograph hunting involved contacting Leeds United, asking for a signed photo of the manager, Garry Monk. I played a sympathy card, saying how I lived far away from Yorkshire and it was my birthday in March.

I didn’t expect to receive anything. However, the day before my birthday, the postman rang the doorbell and delivered a signed team photo. Claire was gutted that she didn’t film me, as I opened the envelope, as my face was apparently priceless. I was in shock, that I would be sent something so special.

A few weeks later, the photo has been framed. I am just thinking of somewhere to put the thing. Meanwhile, I am trying to undertake another task… identify each signature. Twitter has been a great help, but many of the autographs remain a mystery.

Whoever picked the photos for this year’s Leeds United calendar needs to be sacked. Why put a Huddersfield Town player right in the centre of February. This photo was taken last year, when Leeds got beat by Huddersfield in the home game. To rub salt into the wounds, we lost to them away yesterday, and because of this calendar, I am not allowed to forget it!
