With it now being February, I changed the month on my Leeds United Desktop Calendar at work. The calendar contains memories of many of the glory years experienced by Leeds. To be honest, they did well to find twelve triumphant events to fill the calendar. If it was all the bad stuff which has happened to the club, I could be turning over a new page every day.

This month remembers the 3-2 victory over Arsenal, from the “beginning of the end season”, where manager, Terry Venables would have relegated a team which was playing in The Champions League just two years previous, if it weren’t for the fact he was sacked and Leeds were saved by Peter-fuckin’-Reid.

Reminiscing over the game today, I couldn’t believe when I realised it was almost 11 years ago. It seems like it was only yesterday. OK, not yesterday, maybe a good few years, but not more than an entire decade!

The game was bittersweet. Yes, Leeds secured their survival, which on hindsight turned out to be a stay of execution. The downside was that in their victory, they denied Arsenal the title, allowing that now mid-table club from Manchester to win the league.

Oh, and Mark Viduka’s last minute winner was offside. A conspiracy theorist would say that the referee allowed it to stand to please Alex Ferguson…

  • About Me

    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.
