There have been many occasions during my time as a Leeds fan where I have been left feeling very angry. The two relegations, losing to Histon in the FA Cup and two play off final defeats are just a few instances. Then there was Ken Bates, who sold our best young players (mostly to Norwich) and sacked my favourite manager, Simon Grayson.

All of these events would have enraged any football fan, had it happened to their club; and I was certainly not the only Leeds supporter to be angered by them.

Despite Leeds entering their 12th season outside the Premier League and playing crap football for as long as I can remember, my tolerance of the club has been kept relatively mellow lately. That was, until today, when the Leeds owner, Massimo Cellino, sacked the current manager and hired Steve Evans as his replacement.

I was not angry about the sacking (although it was a little harsh). My wrath was at the appointment of the successor – Mr. Evans. In my opinion, he is a repugnant man and possesses a vile temperament, which I have witnessed with my own eyes and ears, when his Crawley Town side played Bath City at Twerton Park. He has previous criminal convictions (just search Google) – something which Leeds United does not need right now. What’s more, he hasn’t really done anything in The Championship, where Leeds play their football.

What few supporters Evans has will argue that he won promotion with Boston, Crawley and Rotherham. Those two clubs had money and the success came in lower divisions. Still, if Leeds are relegated back to League One (which is looking ever likely), at least we’re set up for it. Although it does make me depressed to think that we’ve basically become Boston United and Crawley Town.

The only thing I can do to cheer myself up, is look through the huge collection of “Yo Mama is so fat” jokes on the internet, swapping the words “Yo Mama” for “Steve Evans”.

    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.
