For fucks sake! There’s about five minutes left of the Leeds game but there is absolutely no way of even getting a draw. Sheffield United are winning 4-0. This could well be the first nail in manager Kevin Blackwell’s coffin…

This is a terrible result, especially against local rivals. The last 4 games have all been draws, 3 of the games Leeds should have won easily. The latest string of results has been totally unacceptable.

New chairman Ken Bates will be looking for promotion next season. If Blackwell stays as manager for the 2005/6 season and does not sort Leeds out it is more likely to end up in relegation.

Blackwell is making obvious mistakes…

#1 He still refuses to play David Healy, quite possibly the best striker in the team as a striker. How can he play at his full potential in midfield? Healy will no doubt hand in a transfer request if this continues…

#2 Blackwell refuses to use the traditional 4-4-2 formation even though his other tried and tested formation of 4-4-3 has failed.

#3 Blackwell picks players who are totally crap and do not deserve to wear the white shirt (Jermaine Wright) but leaves out key players (like Sean Gregan this evening). When he finally realises his mistake and makes a substitution it’s too late.


Wish I didn’t make this now…

Chairman Ken Bates is putting the season ticket prices up by over 100%. This has obviously received a lot of criticism from fans. Bates will understand the fans anger and although he won’t change the ticket prices, he will demand success. If this continues I can easily see a new manager at Elland Road next season.

    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.
