Middlesbrough v Leeds United 9th February 2019 at The Riverside Stadium

First of all I want to wish a speedy recovery to young Jack Clarke and hope that he is okay, after an incident in the dugout in the second half resulted in him being taken to hospital. This resulted in 12 minutes of injury time which also included time added for subs and time wasting …

Leeds United v Norwich City 2nd February 2019 at Elland Road

As usual things are never straight forward for Leeds United. With lots of fans staying up for the transfer deadline on Thursday evening with the imminent signing of Dan James from Swansea, I went to bed. It was only the next day that I found the deal to be off due to Swansea in fighting, …

Sheffield United v Leeds United 1st December 2018 at Bramall Lane

We caught the coach at Elland Road on another miserable and wet day to head to the lunchtime kick off that had been put back 30 minutes for Sky. Having just read on Twitter that a Leeds fan had arrived at the ground saying it was very quiet, we couldn’t help laughing when it turned …

Rotherham v Leeds United 26th January 2019 at The New York Stadium

Yesterday saw the sad day of little Toby Nye being laid to rest but not before Leeds fans lined up outside the East Stand to give him a fantastic send off. Sleep tight little man and my thoughts are with all your family and friends. On a personal level this last week is one I …

Stoke City v Leeds United 19th January 2019 at the Bet365 Stadium

It was so sad to hear that Toby Nye our little Leeds fan had lost his battle with Neuroblastoma last weekend. As soon as I heard the news the tears were streaming down my face, as I felt the pain his family will be suffering having lost a child too. It was great to see …

Leeds United v Derby County 11th January 2019 at Elland Road

When you are feeling down, the best therapy you can get is head to watch your football team. What an evening at Elland Road with the best performance of the season and a team playing for each other. After spygate erupted on social media today with Derby accusing a person acting suspiciously outside their training …

QPR V Leeds United 6th January 2019 at Loftus Road FA Cup 3rd round

With a 5.00am wake up call, I for one was looking forward to this FA Cup tie. Winning breeds winning as far as I’m concerned and I certainly don’t want the capitulation that occurred after our third round defeats in the last two years. Time will tell now what happens next but at this moment in time …

Nottingham Forest v Leeds United 1st January 2018 at the City Ground

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year and my wish is for Leeds United to keep fighting and see where we are in a couple of months in our quest for promotion. The saying that you never know what is around the corner is certainly true. As my family faces a challenging year ahead …

Leeds United v Hull City 29th December 2018 at Elland Road

I’d lost track of the days over the Christmas period and once again had to check the kick off time. I couldn’t believe there’d been three 3pm kick offs in a week for us which is unheard of, well it seems that way! My granddaughter Alexis and I went to the Pavilion first as we …

Leeds United v Blackburn Rovers 26th December 2018 at Elland Road

It’s great to see that Santa brought some of my books to fans as presents. Kevin and his wife were attending the game today from Australia and I’d arranged to meet them in the Peacock pre-game. All five of my books were personally autographed so a big thank you to them for supporting me in …

Well done to Laura Mitchell and Leeds United for organising a fantastic party for the kids today.  

Bolton v Leeds United on 15th December 2018 at the Macron Stadium / University of Bolton Stadium

After telling someone on Thursday that I don’t expect anyone to leave us in the January transfer window and also I wasn’t going to count my chickens just yet as to where Leeds will finish at the end of the season, I came home to hear the news that Saiz was on his way. Things …

Leeds United v Bristol City 24th November 2018 at Elland Road

After a week of feeling up and down and lacking in get up and go, I was woken by my youngest granddaughter Alexis age four, Facetiming me and asking if she could come to the football instead of Laura. Well that melted my heart and jolted me into action. It’s surprising what a little bit …

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 …

Blackburn v Leeds United 20th October 2018 at Ewood Park

It was still dark as we left home this morning for the noon kick off and another live game for Sky. I was meeting my daughter Danielle in Leeds and was taking my granddaughter Hannah to her first away game with me. She was really excited and looking forward to her day out with over …
