When I started to support Leeds, they were good. We were playing in Europe and beating Manchester United (I know everyone does that these days, but it was a big thing back then). Leeds have since became shit. I feel partly responsible. I became a football fan later than most. Generally people become supporters during childhood, I waited until my teenage years, before dedicating my life to the sport.

I only had a couple of seasons of glory. Since then, I have been forced to watch my beloved team battle it out in the lower leagues, with crap players, terrible managers and inept owners. What did I do to deserve this? I shouldn’t have bothered with football and remained a computer geek, when the only misery I would experience would involve losing a battle on World of Warcraft.

In all seriousness, I don’t regret anything. I love football and for some strange reason, still love Leeds. Most importantly, had I not become involved in football, I wouldn’t have met my wife.

Leeds have had lots of owners during my time as a fan. None of them have been good enough to bring my club back to where I believe they belong (Champions of the World). Our latest owner is Massimo Cellino. An Italian famous for sacking managers – it would be fair to say, he gets through them, like I get through Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The managers he does sign aren’t very good either! I sound like right moaning bastard.

However, this may all be about to change! Over the last 24 hours, Leeds have been linked with Darrell Clarke, from Bristol Rovers. I really rate Darrell. He took ‘The Gas’ from the doldrums of non-league to League One. He did lose to Bath City in the FA Trophy, but everyone makes mistakes.

He’s a really likable man too. My only concern is that he took time to build a good side at Rovers – something, which based on Cellino’s history, he won’t get. Unless our new manager wins the European Cup, finds a cure for AIDS and solves world hunger, he will most likely be sacked before we’re putting the pumpkins out for Halloween.

Still, I’m willing to live the dream that Clarkey will join The Mighty Whites, be allowed to put together the best team in the land, and be supported by Mr. Cellino. Yeah right. I doubt we’ll even get him. He’ll stay at Rovers, get another promotion and we’ll be relegated. Sigh.

  • 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.
