Tomorrow evening, I’m off to Nailsworth to watch Leeds United play Forest Green Rovers in a pre-season friendly – my first Leeds game in over a year.

Leeds also have Newcastle United away on the same evening; therefore it has been widely reported that the youth and reserve side will be sent down to Gloucestershire.

However, after Newcastle’s display in their 6-1 defeat on Saturday, I think Leeds’ first team would benefit from a bigger challenge against the Blue Square Premier side.

Leeds will therefore probably send the under-12 side up to Tyneside, allowing their more regular players to receive a tougher test against a southern non-league outfit.

Another idea is for Leeds not to start with anyone at Newcastle, allowing the first team to play 45 minutes against Forest Green; before getting a plane up to the north-east and kicking a ball about for the remaining 5 minutes – Leeds would probably still win 2-0.

    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.
