When Steve Evans was first appointed manager of Leeds, I was furious. I’ll be honest – I still don’t like him and or want him at my club. However, I amazed myself at the weekend, when I felt sorry for the man.

Leeds had just finished the season, with a 1-1 draw against Preston. Like every season for what seems like the last hundred years, Leeds did nothing and finished mid table.

As always, the Leeds fans travelled to Preston in their numbers. I’m an ‘armchair’ Leeds supporter, who listened in on the old wireless (ok, a dodgy link over the internet) and the fans sounded amazing. If this is what they can do when we have a crap season and achieve nothing, what will it be like if the club actually won something? Scary.

Steve Evans was very emotional at the end of the Preston game. He has never managed a club the size of Leeds and appeared totally overwhelmed by the support, which was as good as any club in the country.

Given his rather dodgy past (just Google him), I shouldn’t really care what Evans feels, but hearing him on the verge of tears in the post-match interview, wasn’t nice to listen to. He appeared to be so upset because he doesn’t seem to know if he’ll still be in a job next week, let alone next season. He is being messed around by Leeds owner, Massimo Cellino. I won’t go into his past either (again, just look on Google), but needless to say, it could be regarded as a little sneaky.

Evans rightly fears for his future. Along with many Leeds fans, I fear for the club next season. Will we go up (no way), will we go down (increasing likely), or will we have yet another season of joyous mid table mediocrity.

    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.
