Bolton A 6th August 2017

Today the football was back for Leeds United and I was looking forward to our away game at Bolton that was kicking off at 4.30pm due to Sky. I was very upbeat even though we have had a takeover complete, Elland Road bought back, a manager change and new players coming into the squad as …

Oxford United (H) 29th July 2017

It was good to be going back to Elland Road today even though it was a friendly against Oxford and not the start of the Championship games. Others seem to think the close season has dragged but for me personally it has flown due to so many things going on. Having seen my youngest daughter …

Wigan 7th May 2017

I left home with the sun shining only to arrive at a very cold and windy Elland Road. I’d also passed four individual magpies too so thought that wouldn’t be such a bad omen for the result today. I hung my banner around Billy’s ankles to take some photos and wanted to climb up and …

Norwich 29th April 2017

I’d put my Yorkshire Evening Post Leeds shirt on today as a tribute to the Last Champions – Leeds United in 1992! Being pregnant in those final days I will always have a constant reminder of the year as my daughter Danielle is pictured with her dad and the cup when she was five weeks …

Burton 22nd April 2017

Today I was picking up Jo in Halifax so had some company on my way to Leeds. After travelling with Jo to Cambridge earlier in the season, we had a good sing song both on the way there and back so I put a Heartbeat CD on for us to enjoy. As we were on …

Wolves 17th April 2017

When I arrived back from the Newcastle game I found I was wide awake for most of the night so only had a couple of hours sleep, probably due to buzzing about our ending to the game. Last night I found I couldn’t sleep either due to an active mind, but also knowing I’d to …

Newcastle 14th April 2017

It’s been a pretty stressful week. Being sat at a funeral wake on Tuesday to hear my granddaughter was on her way to hospital from the doctors to rule out meningitis meant everything else went out of the window. Whilst I wouldn’t wish acute tonsillitis on her, the relief to know it was that rather …

Preston 8th April 2017

I’d sent a tweet to LUFC this morning “Come on Leeds, a win today will keep our hopes alive #LUFC @LUFC Perfect weather for football at Elland Road, see you there!” The weather was glorious as I went to pick up my granddaughter Hannah. The difference it makes to a footballing day is unbelievable in …

Brentford 4th April 2017

I was glad that I’d have plenty to occupy me today as it marks the anniversary of my baby daughter’s death. Amidst those sorrows, all Leeds fans will be remembering the families and friends of Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight on the eve of their tragic deaths in Turkey. Always in our hearts, gone but never …

Reading 1st April 2017

Not a great start as I was setting off to Reading when I saw my car tyre was as flat as a …… Just what I didn’t need! Luckily I had allowed myself plenty of time to get to Leeds for the coach as I tried to get a lift. I didn’t want to drive …

Brighton 18th March 2017

As it turned out I was very grateful that we had a late kick off today as I felt totally exhausted for some reason. At least it gave me chance to come round before I set off for Elland Road with my daughter Dani and granddaughter Hannah. Once in the Peacock we met Per Steinar …

QPR – 11th March 2017

I was aiming to be at Elland Road earlier than usual but by the time I’d picked my granddaughter Laura up it was 1.45 pm by the time we reached the Peacock. Another 30,000+ crowd was expected at Leeds today and the Peacock was packed. I had arranged to meet someone who was buying my …

Fulham 7th March 2017

I had a later set off time today but at least it meant that I could get to the game and thanks once again to fans who helped me achieve that. We arrived at the game not long before kickoff but got there in time. Getting through the turnstiles was an achievement in itself whilst …

Birmingham 3rd March 2017

Birmingham 3rd March 2017 – Thank you to David Watson from Linthwaite and Bobby Joyce for these reports. Thanks for the photos Bobby! A big thank you to Vaughan Milliken for his photos too as they are greatly appreciated. So, in the absence of Heidi Haigh who couldn’t make it to the game (sorry you …

Sheffield Wednesday 25th February 2017

As we headed to Elland Road to see the game in front of a 35,000+ crowd, I was still adamant that we should play to our strengths, enjoy the game and let Wednesday do the worrying. That should enable us to get something out of it! After a visit to the Peacock I met a …

Ipswich Town 18th February 2017

As I set off from home it felt eerily quiet even though it was 7.15am but at least the sun was rising making it light. It gave me a positive feeling to the day as I stopped the car at the side of the road to take a couple of photos.  Our pub stop today …

Bristol City 14th February 2017

Lucky for me I was heading to Leeds from Halifax so my car journey took approximately 20 minutes. Fans coming from the opposite direction had to endure snail paced traffic due to an incident west bound on the M62 which backed up along the M621 and the ring road in Leeds. I was due to …

Cardiff 11th February 2017

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I drew back my curtains this morning, to see a damn magpie sat on my lawn mocking me!! I decided to put it to the back of my mind as I tried to work out who we played in our last game as well! When I realised eventually it …

Huddersfield  5th February 2017

I didn’t set off until 10.30 am today as I was driving to it. As I listened to BBC Radio Leeds on the way in they were saying that lots of fans were already turning up and the roads around the ground were getting busy. I decided to drive the back way in and got …

Blackburn 1st February 2017

I picked up Gary and his daughter Ella before heading to junction 25 where the coach was picking us up. This worked really well and although we had some queuing we only had to do a diversion nearer Blackburn. We pulled into the services for the police escort but didn’t get off the coach as …
