Sean's Stories

Last football season was almost the death of me. Never has the phrase ‘It’s the hope that kills you’ been more apt.

Leeds flirted with the promotion dream – a dream that eventually died… something I predicted and will never let people forget.

With the season over and no football for another two months, I welcomed the stress-free break.

Then this story appears on my Twitter timeline…

Like promotion, there is no chance of a success-hungry billionaire buying my club. I support Leeds United. Good things don’t happen to Leeds United.

But if they did, I would like to think the club directors would install a new swimming pool for themselves…

The Bucket Man is staying for another year!

He must be crazy…

If watching Leeds get knocked out of the play offs last night, wasn’t enough to reduce me to a quivering wreck, the sight of a devastated Pontus Jansson broke me.

A grown man crying. It’s enough to make a grown man cry.

Poor Pontus. I hear he is still sat inthe same spot right now.

I’ve said it time and time again – primarily when blogging about Leeds United – but I hate being right all the time.

Here are the comments I made at the weekend, after Leeds beat Derby County in the 1st Leg of the Play Off Semi Final…

No doubt it’ll all end in misery for Leeds fans on Wednesday, when Derby visit Elland Road, for the second leg, of these horrendous play offs…

Lampard is a ‘dead cert’ to beat Leeds and reach Wembley, so that he can face his former Chelsea Chum and all round disgusting human being, John Terry, who is currently involved with Aston Villa…

It was the all-important second leg tonight. Guess what happened?

I’ll give you a clue…

Derby are known as ‘The Rams’. One would assume that their nickname was inspired by a particularly brave, plucky sheep.

After Saturday, it looked like Leeds fans would be dining out on lamb chops…

Not one piece of mutton will be passing my lips – and not just because I am a veggie.

The reason why The Rams won’t become chops, is because they turned themselves around and devoured every single one the Leeds United players…

RECONSTRUCTION

What I am trying to say, and please excuse my language, is that Leeds fucked themselves over.

They got beat and became the first team to lose the Play Offs, after winning the first leg away from home. Or something like that. Ask a football stato, like Des Lynnam.

If ever there is a team to break a football record, for all the wrong reasons, you can always depend on Leeds. The bastards.

Good luck to Derby in the final. They were by far the better team in the second half of tonight’s game.

I even hope they proceed to win the final and get promoted. I’m sure you all think that I am showing great sportsmanship; but in all honesty, I just want Aston Villa – who employee the odious John Terry – to lose.

This blog post aged well.

Written in December 2018, I fantasized about various outcomes, come the end  of the season…

Leeds to finish as Championsha! We couldn’t even get second place in the end. Sure Leeds are in the Play Offs, but there is more chance of me running the London Marathon, than my team getting promoted.

Liverpool to win the Premier League While my wife, Claire, was able to enjoy her team giving their league rivals a good many more problems than Leeds did theirs, the Reds ultimately fell short – losing the title this afternoon, to that lot in Manchester. No… not Manchester United. There’s more chance of me WINNING the London Marathon, than that team winning anything.

Bath City to win the Play Offs – It was the Play Off Final this afternoon. City were supposed to be playing. Well, according to my fantasy, from five months ago, they were! City weren’t even involved. This is because they had lost to Wealdstone, in an earlier knock-out round. Wealdstone then went on to lose themselves, so didn’t get to the final either. Overall a waste of time. Oh, fiddle-sticks.

Casting my fantasies aside, I also made some actual predictions. I would say that they are scarily accurate, apart from the fact that it was flippin’ obvious I would guess correctly…

Leeds to miss out on automatic promotion and bottle the Play Offs So far, so predictably shite. Automatic promotion is but a distant memory. Leeds are still in the Play Offs, but the brewery has the bottles all ready to… well, bottle!

Liverpool to finish second, behind Man City All over the news. This seems to have received more coverage than 9/11. I know this blog is just adding to the hype.

Bath City to finish outside the Play Offs Not officially a prediction, as to my friends, family and fellow supporters, I’ve been saying the opposite all season. I thought being negative about everything, would make my blog post appear better…  it works for Jack Dee and Simon Cowell. City did make the Play Offs, so proved me right, but sadly fell short.

While Bath City’s season is well and truly over, and won’t play a competitive game until August; Liverpool have a small matter of a Champions League final, while Leeds remain in the Play Offs – for now!

I predict Liverpool will be victorious, with Leeds ending calamitous. These are my serious predictions, but I would be delighted to jinx things and for Leeds to go up, even if in doing so, it costs my wife’s beloved Reds – sorry, Claire!
