Leeds lost to Wigan this afternoon… Wigan!

A team who looks certain for relegation.

A team who have won just three of their last 37 away games. Two of those three victories were against the same club. I’ll give you one guess which one.

For crying out loud! Wigan didn’t even score! The only goal of the match was an O.G. – scored by Pablo Hernandez – a player who should be scoring FOR Leeds!

I’m sticking by my prediction from the start of the football season, that Leeds will get promoted this time. However, I am finding it increasing difficult to ‘keep the faith’.

I’m telling you, Leeds United will be the death of me.

2-0 down, at home to Millwall. Promotion as good as over. I don’t know whether to weep or write a ranting blog post. Probably the latter.

Leeds somehow win 3-2! When the third, winning goal was scored, I think I must have experienced what taking heroin is like.

You big, beautiful bastards! However, if next time you could avoid scaring the poop out of me, it would be much appreciated. Ta.

When Leeds United manager, Marcelo Bielsa, asked for a coffee in order to wake him up, I don’t think he envisaged the drink being served in the manner it was…

At least he would have woken up.

The coffee video was taken in Bielsa’s pre-Leeds days. This isn’t to say that he is any less entertaining now he is in England.

Leeds lost again today…

My brain is trying to tell me otherwise, but…

We’re not going up, are we?

I keep hearing people say that Leeds are on a rollercoaster of a season.

I can only assume that they were on about Oblivion – The vertical drop rollercoaster at Alton Towers.

It’s happening again. The annual winter choke. This is nothing to do with a cold or fly-type virus. I am referring to Leeds United, yet again doing their very best to mess up promotion.

Leeds have won just one league game, from the previous six played.

Between early August and mid-December, Leeds conceded only 10 goals.

Since mid-December, that same team have shipped 13! Unlucky if you’re a Leeds fan. Hilarious if you support a rival team.

A very similar course of events took place last season. I predicted Leeds would bottle promotion and maddeningly, they did.

Is the same going to happen again? I bloody hope not. Throughout this season, I have backed my team, maintaining that this time, they will finally finish the job and get themselves promoted.

Understandably, I am now getting worried…

More out of pure stubbornness than anything else, I will stick with my original prediction. I’m hoping that in the same way that I accurately foresaw Leeds’ collapse last season, this time, by keeping faith in the players, they’ll do it.

Come May, we’ll all be celebrating with champagne, instead of the annual passing out on a park bench, having drowned our sorrows with a three litre bottle of Diamond White cider.


Which one is it to be then, Leeds?

Whatever beverage you end up with, you can be sure of three things – a trip to A&E to get your stomach pumped, a public order offence and a lifetime ban from the local library.

These days I am as good as tee-total, but even I may push the boat out and enjoy a Baileys with ice, should the unthinkable happen…
