Leeds play Blackburn in The Carling Cup tonight (should have just kicked off as I type). Have very mixed feelings about this game, while I always like to see Leeds win games, especially against stronger teams (like The Mighty Blackburn Rovers) however I think a long cup run would be detrimental for Leeds’ season.

Teams who have been chasing promotion in the past and also had successful cup runs have ended up not being promoted ( Sunderland in 2003/4 and Sheffield United in numerous seasons are good examples). Some Leeds players are also carrying injuries and although can just about manage their league games, I think a cup game could flare up any potential problems.

Chelsea can keep their Mickey Mouse Cup for all I care

Therefore I am pleased to see that Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell has fielded a somewhat weaker team for this game.

Anyway, good luck to Leeds, hope you can do the best with the team you have fielded. Not too bothered of the result though, would far rather beat Reading on Saturday, a game which I will be going to!

    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.
