Leeds United v West Bromwich Albion (WBA) 1st October 2019 at Elland Road

I couldn’t believe a couple of the stories coming out of Charlton last Saturday. On hearing the stewards saying they didn’t know they had to deal with a guide dog (Rita) on the terraces and asking if she would wee there, was a good one. As Rita is a well-known Leeds fan along with her …

Charlton v Leeds United 28th September 2019 at The Valley

  Well it was nice to see Leeds United rattle other fans this week when Bielsa won FIFA’s Fair Play award for letting Aston Villa score last season. Whilst that is one time I disagreed with Bielsa as we had scored a legitimate goal, it was funny seeing the outrage on social media. It’s a …

After another stressful morning I could have well done without, it meant we didn’t get to Elland Road until late. As soon as my granddaughter Laura was dropped off, along with my daughter Danielle we headed straight into the ground as it was too late to go to the Peacock. As we were walking along …

My granddaughter and I headed to Leeds for our first home game of the season as for once this didn’t include any pre-season games at Elland Road. It was good to be back having got in the mood for football by playing Paul Wilson’s King of Elland Road all the way from Halifax. We bumped …
