It’s happening again. The annual winter choke. This is nothing to do with a cold or fly-type virus. I am referring to Leeds United, yet again doing their very best to mess up promotion.

Leeds have won just one league game, from the previous six played.

Between early August and mid-December, Leeds conceded only 10 goals.

Since mid-December, that same team have shipped 13! Unlucky if you’re a Leeds fan. Hilarious if you support a rival team.

A very similar course of events took place last season. I predicted Leeds would bottle promotion and maddeningly, they did.

Is the same going to happen again? I bloody hope not. Throughout this season, I have backed my team, maintaining that this time, they will finally finish the job and get themselves promoted.

Understandably, I am now getting worried…

More out of pure stubbornness than anything else, I will stick with my original prediction. I’m hoping that in the same way that I accurately foresaw Leeds’ collapse last season, this time, by keeping faith in the players, they’ll do it.

Come May, we’ll all be celebrating with champagne, instead of the annual passing out on a park bench, having drowned our sorrows with a three litre bottle of Diamond White cider.


Which one is it to be then, Leeds?

Whatever beverage you end up with, you can be sure of three things – a trip to A&E to get your stomach pumped, a public order offence and a lifetime ban from the local library.

These days I am as good as tee-total, but even I may push the boat out and enjoy a Baileys with ice, should the unthinkable happen…

    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.
