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 …

Bolton Carabao Cup 1st Round 14th August 2018 at Elland Road

As my granddaughter Hannah and I arrived at the ground our first stop was the club shop. I’d met my publisher Steve unexpectedly yesterday and he said that three of my books were on sale in the shop which was good to hear. The book area had been delayed as the sale of the home …

Derby (A) 11 August 2018 at Pride Park

Good news for me, I have now proof read my latest book Back to Reality, Leeds United 2017-18 and sent this back to my publisher. Fingers crossed it will be out in the next few weeks. I have approximately 200 photos (including collages) from our journey to games last season in the book as it …

Norwich City v Leeds United 28th April 2018 at Carrow Road

It wouldn’t be Leeds United without more controversy happening at the club. With a post season tour to Myanmar formerly Burma on the cards, my first instincts were of fear for the fans as I thought the Foreign Office had banned all travel there due to the unrest and atrocities going on in the country. …

Leeds United v Barnsley 21st April 2018 at Elland Road

The sun shone brightly in Halifax as I set off for Elland Road making it perfect weather for a football game. Singing along to the greatest showman also made it a very happy journey. As I was meeting Dean at Billy’s statue at 1.30 pm for a live interview I made sure I set off …

Aston Villa v Leeds United Friday 13th April 2018 at Villa Park

I was going early to the game today as I was meeting Harriet who was going to film me for an interview for a Fan Girls Documentary. Whether this ever gets into the public eye I’ve no idea, but it went really well and Harriet’s comments later were that she had watched the footage and …

Preston v Leeds United 10th April 2018 at Deepdale

As we headed to Preston at 4.00 pm I thought we were going straight to the ground but luckily despite the crawling traffic a few times we managed an hour stop in Leyland. From there we got to the ground with a police escort just before 7.00 pm. I was meeting Martin and his son …

Leeds United v Sunderland 7th April 2018 at Elland Road

After I took a photo of the plaque at Elland Road on Tuesday remembering Chris and Kev our two fans who were murdered in Turkey, I mentioned on the WACCOE forum that it was hard to read and whether there was anything we as fans could do to remedy this. I’m very pleased to say …

Fulham v Leeds United 3rd April 2018 at Craven Cottage

Before I start my blog today I wish to pay my respects to the families and friends of our fans Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight who were brutally murdered in Istanbul on 5th April 2000. Never forgive and never forget that they went to a football game to watch Leeds United and didn’t return.  Leeds …

Leeds United v Sheffield Wednesday 17th March 2018

Today saw a poignant day for my family as we should have been celebrating my daughter Charlotte’s birthday. Despite her short life of 17 days when she was taken from us suddenly and unexpectedly, she found fame as a Leeds United fan. She attended her first game against Crystal Palace at six days old. On …

Reading v Leeds United 10th March 2018 at the Madejski Stadium

Before I start my blog today, I would like to say the following. If any fan is interested in buying my books at a game, please note that I only carry one of each book with me on the day. If I know more than one copy is required, I can sort this in advance …

Leeds United v Wolves 7th March 2018 at Elland Road

I was on BBC Radio Leeds this morning before heading to work. I was asked how many points I would give Heckingbottom out of 10 since he has been here. Maybe I surprised myself and did him a disservice, but I said none although I did say he could have a point after our recent …

Middlesbrough v Leeds United Friday 2nd March 2018 at The Riverside Stadium

Well what an end to the week with horrendous weather from the Beast from the East which saw heavy snow hit the north of England and Scotland. Storm Emma headed south yesterday and caused further havoc. In amongst these was a football game that was taking place tonight at Middlesbrough. Will it be on? Will …

Leeds United v Brentford 24th February 2018 at Elland Road

As we set off for Elland Road today, despite how cold it was, the sun was shining and the sky was blue. In my eyes this was a perfect setting for playing football in. When we got into the Peacock I said that I was expecting a win today seeing that we had been beaten …

Derby County v Leeds United at Pride Park 21st February 2018

For once this game worked in my favour as the holiday period timed in with me not being at work this week. Arriving at Elland Road in time for the coach departure I headed for Billy’s bar but then did an about turn after seeing they had some new bags in the club shop window. …

Leeds United v Bristol City at Elland Road Sunday 18th February 2018

After a week of feeling lethargic, irritable and generally not feeling well, it was a relief when my daughter Dani said she’d drive us to the game today. With it being a silly kick off time of 4.30 pm courtesy of our usual change for showing the game live on Sky TV, we called in …

Sheffield United v Leeds United 10th February 2018 at Bramall Lane

Well it’s certainly never dull being a Leeds United fan after another week of sacking our manager and getting another one in. I know I was wavering last week after the defeat against Cardiff but I so wanted to see stability and things work out and knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. The lad stood next …

Cardiff 3rd February 2018 at Elland Road   

Yesterday saw a big gathering of Leeds United Supporters who came together to say goodbye to Eric Carlile. With fans arriving from Norway, East Anglia and Wellingborough and many others, it showed how well respected Eric was for his service of over 50 years to the Leeds United Supporters Club and to our members. With …

Hull City 30th January 2018 at the KCOM Stadium

Well what a week it’s been as a Leeds United fan. Seeing the club launch a new crest that was underwhelming due to it being a Leeds salute, this went down with the fans like a lead balloon. Now don’t get me wrong I love the Leeds salute and it’s something I do all the …
