West Bromwich Albion v Leeds United 10th November 2018 at The Hawthorns

It was a 5.30 pm kick off that beckoned today but things got off to a bad start when the coaches didn’t turn up on times due to a mix up. I was on coach two today but as coach one got ready to go with our driver from last week, there were reminisces from …

Wigan v Leeds United 4th November 2018 at the DW Stadium

It seemed such a long time since we’d had a game with this Sunday lunchtime kick off with a large support from Leeds once again heading to Wigan. I surpassed myself this morning by forgetting we were leaving Leeds at 9am; the realisation hit as we were getting ready to leave the house at 7am! As my daughter …

Leeds United v Nottingham Forest 27th October 2018 at Elland Road

Before I start my blog today, I wish to pay my respects to our oldest and longest Leeds United fan Edna Newton, who died this week aged 94 years. Having a season ticket for 64 years was a fantastic achievement and the game needs more fans like her. It was a proud moment seeing my …

Leeds United v Ipswich 24th October 2018 at Elland Road

We were later than usual getting to Elland Road for this night game as there seemed to be loads of traffic everywhere. On hearing the M621 was closed in both directions we came off at Tingley instead and got there 40 minutes before kick-off. By the time we’d walked to the ground it was too …

Leeds United v Brentford 6th October 2018 at Elland Road

As my granddaughter Hannah and I headed into Elland Road for the early kick off after leaving at 8.30 am, I realised that despite feeling tired, many of our long distance fans would have already been on the road a long time before. I was due to meet Christophe a French journalist for an interview …

Hull City  v Leeds United 2nd October 2018 at the KCOM Stadium

This was the second time in a week that I was heading to an away game straight from work only this time the Fullerton Park coach was taking the strain. I arrived at Elland Road at the same time as my daughter Danielle and had a chat to Fiona Hanley the Supporters Liaison Officer (SLO) …

As soon as I finished work, I got quickly changed into my Leeds things and headed over the tops to Wakefield from Brighouse as I was driving to the game today. After making good time I picked up my daughter at Junction 39 and although there was some traffic as we pulled off the M1, …

I did an interview with Hatty when we played Aston Villa away on 13th April 2018. I’m looking forward to seeing the full version in due course. This doc explores the extent to which sexism is experienced by female football fans. Unfortunately, due to copyrighted material, the full version cannot be put up until Hatty …

Leeds United v Birmingham 22nd September 2018 at Elland Road

With today’s game a sellout, it was good to see our worldwide fan base coming together. Although I missed our Hong Kong Whites who were outside the Peacock when my daughter Dani arrived, it was good to know that plenty of our Scandinavian fans and Irish fans would be here today. As my granddaughter Laura …

Leeds United v Preston 18th September 2018 at Elland Road

Today saw the first of two homes games in a week. With Preston having beaten us in the Carabao Cup, I said that we wouldn’t make the same mistake again but it wouldn’t be easy. As I was meeting Vicky in the Peacock who had bought my new book Back to Reality, Leeds United 2017-18 …

Millwall v Leeds United 15th September 2018 at the New Den

When I got up at the unearthly hour of 5.20am it could only be for one thing, a Leeds United away day and as it turned out a 17 hour round trip. This was the first game after the international break so it was nice to see the football back. It was quite dark and …

Leeds United v Middlesbrough 31st August 2018 at Elland Road

As my granddaughter Laura and I headed to Elland Road for the near sell out clash, I found I literally had to drag myself there. It was a real effort as I felt that bad but I realised that work overload issues had affected me more than I’d have ever thought. With the Peacock buzzing …

Leeds United v Preston 28th August 2018 at Elland Road, 2nd round Carabao Cup

What can I say but a big thank you to all those Leeds fans who have stood up to be counted and given me fantastic support for sharing my blogs. After receiving some abuse from someone about the fact my blog showed up in approx. 10 different Facebook groups, the reaction I have had from …

Norwich v Leeds United 25th August 2018 at Carrow Road

With an early start beckoning, what I didn’t expect was to be wide awake for most of the night. With my Fitbit showing I only had 1 hour 21 minutes sleep, I felt like death warmed up. As I got to Leeds I realised why I’d been cold as the temperature was at a low …

Swansea v Leeds United 21st August 2018 at The Liberty Stadium

The coach was leaving Leeds at 9.30am today and I got there in plenty time. After a quick look at some of the Bremner Stones, with pickups at Wakefield, Chesterfield and Tamworth, we headed to Porthcawl for our pub stop. After sunshine most of the way down, it started raining but luckily it stopped by …

Leeds United v Rotherham 18th August 2018 at Elland Road

On our way to Elland Road we heard that the game was now a sellout from a Leeds fan’s perspective with the only tickets available in the Rotherham area. After a quick trip to the White Rose we got to the ground at 1.15 pm the earliest for a long while, as I was meeting …
