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) …

Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds United 28th September 2018 at Hillsborough

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, …

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 …

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 …

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 …
