QPR v Leeds United 9th December 2017

Up at the unearthly hour of 5.00 am can only mean one thing, a football away day with Leeds United. I daren’t have that extra 25 minutes sleep before my alarm was due to go off just to make sure I didn’t miss it. It was going to be a cold one today before all …

Barnsley Away 25th November 2017

Yesterday evening as usual I’d changed into my Leeds shirt to go to an event, any excuse to wear my colours. As soon as I walked in I heard my name shouted and then the Leeds salute done which I reciprocated. Later when we had a chat, although he wasn’t going to Barnsley (he’s a …

Wolves away 22nd November 2017

First of all I would like to give a big apology for forgetting to mention Wayne Ogden in my blog on Sunday who escorted me to Elland Road in his little yellow car. He recognised my beret as he passed my car and I recognised his registration plate so thank you lol!! Today was going …

Middlesbrough Home19th November 2017

It’s been such a busy week in the background. Monday evening saw me travel to Leeds to be in the Trust’s Podcast and it was nice to see someone tweeting about it from America. Also saw someone today who said they were the one who’d said it was a great listen so thank you. Yesterday …

Brentford away 4th November 2017

Good news with the fund raising for Toby Nye as £150,000 has been raised so only £50,000 to go; this should be achievable by Christmas with auctions and other events being done. I’ve also had an appearance on Radio Yorkshire Thursday morning where as usual I talked a lot. As I was told afterwards that is …

Derby County 31st October 2017

As we made our way to Elland Road I wasn’t looking forward to the cold, there again I think it was colder in our house than outside! After a quick trip to the ticket office and club shop we headed to the Peacock. I was meeting Garry to personalise the two books he was aiming …

Leicester City away Carabao Cup 24th October 2017

It was a late set off today but then ended up being even later as the coach we were travelling on had broken down earlier in the day, so we had to wait for it to get back on the road to take us to the game. Despite this and the traffic being quite heavy …

Bristol City away 21st October 2017

I can’t believe how quick my new book “The Sleeping Giant Awakens, Leeds United 2016-17 has appeared on Amazon and will be in the Leeds shop at the end of the month! Great stuff! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sleeping-Giant-Awakens-United-2016-17/dp/1780915675/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1508623507&sr=1-1&keywords=the+sleeping+giant+awakens+leeds As usual I will be getting a quota to sell and will autograph copies for those who want them through …

Reading H 14th October 2017

My new book The Sleeping Giant Awakens, Leeds United Season 2016-17 is in the final stages. Having got the draft back for proofreading yesterday, I was doing this late into the night yesterday and this morning which meant that the early start for Elland Road didn’t happen. Falling asleep all the time didn’t help though! …

Sheffield Wednesday A 1st October 2017

Yesterday saw us with free time with the game being tomorrow so I attended the Leeds United Supporters Trust meeting first and then headed to join other fans for our singing practice. Unfortunately because of the latter I had to leave the AGM before Allan Clarke spoke which was a shame. Allan is still as …

Cardiff 26th September 2017

You know the feeling when you are trying to help another Leeds fan get in touch with someone you know without success? I then tried to ring the number only for it to be unattainable, oh dear.  Mmm that had alarm bells ringing especially when I realised all the texts I’d sent to the “new” …

Ipswich Town Home 23rd September 2017

Waking up to the sun shining made it feel like a good day for football. As Leeds United have another sell out home crowd, today is going to be buzzing around Elland Road and I can’t wait. Talking of not waiting is my granddaughter Hannah. When I picked her up last night I didn’t even …

Burnley Away 19th September 2017 Carabao Cup Third Round

I was looking forward to the short journey to Burnley today as I was getting a lift with Jo and Carmel. When we’d parked up we headed straight to the cricket club and enjoyed sitting on the balcony enjoying the sunshine. There were quite a few people we knew in there so I took a …

Millwall Away – 16th September 2017

It was pitch black when I woke up 20 minute before my alarm was due to go off so instead of going back to sleep I got up. I had visions of me missing my alarm if I did that. Getting up at the unearthly hour of 5.10am could only mean one thing, an LUFC …

Birmingham 12th September 2017

I always go on about our fantastic worldwide fan base but it’s true. I always wear my colours whenever I’m not working and did so when we travelled to Florida last month. Having stayed at The Great Western, Altrincham the night before, a minibus was coming to pick us up to take us to the …

Burton 9th September 2017

Having missed the last two games to Newport and Forest due to the opportunity I had to take it was good to be back at Elland Road after the international break. Having managed at long last to go to Florida and Disneyworld on holiday with my family and swim with the dophins it was something …

Sunderland 19th August 2017

Chris who?????? I’d given Gaz and his daughter Ella a lift into Leeds for us to catch the Fullerton Park coach today. It was nice to see that that the timeline outside Billy’s Bar had been updated with our 1974 League Champions win although our European Cup Winners Cup Final in Salonika in 1973 is …

Fulham Home 15th August 2017

We’d gone to Castleford Outlet prior to the game and when my granddaughters met a young lad in the playground with a Leeds shirt on called Oliver, they thought I should know him! As we were expecting a big crowd again, I knew it would be busy so I thought I’d avoid the motorway and …

Preston 12th August 2017

I was due to meet someone at Elland Road around 2pm who was buying my second two books only to find that due to traffic and other things we didn’t get there until 2.30 pm. Sorry Richard and I will get there earlier on Tuesday! Fans were still streaming down to the ground as my …

Port Vale Carabao Cup (League Cup!) 1st round 9th August 2017

As I set off from home with my daughter Dani and two granddaughters Hannah and Laura, we didn’t get very far. As we hit the main road we were turned around by the police as the road was cordoned off due to a road traffic accident. This was still in place on our return to …
