Sutton FA Cup 4th Round 29th January 2017

Before I start my blog today I am skipping to the end product. Disgraceful Leeds United, treating both the fans and the FA Cup with such disrespect. 14 away games fans had to attend to get a ticket for today with some people up at 3.30 am and others arriving here the day before showing …

Nottingham Forest 25th January 2017

It was going to be a very cold evening with the temperature dropping as we headed to Elland Road. My granddaughter Hannah was very excited to be going to the game and her highlight would be seeing Lucas the Kop Cat hopefully! I’m very proud that in a couple of weeks Hannah will be having …

Barnsley 21st January 2017

It was touch and go at one stage this week as to whether I would make the game today. After my surgery on Monday evening I went in to work for a meeting late on Tuesday afternoon and went back in on Wednesday. I only lasted an hour on the latter day before being sent …

Derby 13th January 2017

Setting off to work in snow this morning it was good to hear that it wouldn’t last and the game wouldn’t be affected tonight. Although it was to be cold that was good to know. We didn’t arrive at the ground until after 7.00 pm and I’d thought we wouldn’t get to the Peacock but …

Cambridge FA Cup 3rd Round 9th January 2017

This one was going to be a late set off and I was lucky that I was being picked up by a friend who was doing the driving. We had a good journey there and were able to park up opposite the ground albeit with a ten minute walk away. With it being close to …

Rotherham 2nd January 2017

Happy New Year everyone and today I’m looking forward to a change in fortunes for Leeds United this year. Yesterday Leeds put the sold out notices up again apart from the part of the West Stand allocated to the Rotherham fans with approximately 500 of them coming to the game. Although it was 12.30 pm …

Aston Villa 29th December 2016

After having only played Villa at home at the beginning of December it felt weird already travelling to the return fixture.  Villa Park is a ground I have visited many times before with many memories for the wrong reasons although some good ones. My first visit in the early seventies had no issues in the …

Preston 26th December 2016

After all the Christmas celebrations over the last couple of days, it was back to normality today with our trip to Preston North End. With Simon Grayson our ex manager there it wasn’t going to be an easy game. We stopped off in Leyland for our pub stop where I took an interest in the …

Leeds United Kid’s Christmas Party 20th December 2016

It was nice to see so many happy faces enjoying themselves at the Kid’s Christmas Party today. My granddaughters said it was “amazing” so well done Leeds!

Brentford 17th December 2016

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone whether a friend, family or acquaintance a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. There are many people I know who are battling their own illness or who have lost someone close to them recently. I hope that you get through things in the …

Reading 13th December 2016

After struggling to walk all day due to pain at the top of my leg, I was driving to Elland Road when all of a sudden I had an overwhelming urge of exhaustion that made me want to burst into tears. I decided then to stop off at the White Rose Centre so by the …

Brighton 9th December 2016

Firstly I want to pay my respects to the family of Billy Bremner on the anniversary of his death two days ago. Billy Bremner always was and always will be my hero. He epitomised what being Leeds is all about and instilled in me the love and loyalty of supporting my team. You will never …

Aston Villa 3rd December 2016

Although the kick off wasn’t until 5.30 today, we set off early as I was going to the LFU meeting first and my husband was going in corporate hospitality. What I will say is that Leeds United totally outclassed Huddersfield Town in the hospitality stakes so well done!! On the way to the Peacock I …

Liverpool 29th November 2016 5th Round of EFL Cup

As soon as the draw was made for the next round of the League Cup as I still call it, it was obvious that tickets would be like gold dust. I’m so glad that I’ve got the automatic away cup tickets in place because I don’t think I could have coped with the stress! As …

Rotherham 26th November 2016

Before I start my blog today, it looks like my ambition of getting recordings of the Leeds fans singing our old songs is going to happen. I am in the process of getting all the songs I know put down on paper together with some other Leeds fans who have wanted to do this for …

Newcastle 20th November 2016

As we set off for Elland Road it seemed such a long time since we’d had a game. With our last one being away from home at Norwich before the break for the internationals, the break had come at the wrong time for me. There again I’d be happy to ditch the breaks as I …

Norwich 5th November 2016

Before I start my blog today I want to mention a couple of things. Firstly as Remembrance Day grows closer with more silences before kick-off, I want to pay my respects to all those who we owe so much to. Even though my dad was on the opposite side in the war, he made sure …

Burton Albion 29th October 2016

By the time I reached Elland Road today I was later than anticipated due to an unexpected happening. By the time I picked my granddaughter Laura up though I had seen three magpies together so immediately thought we would win. When someone outside the ground had asked how we would do today, I had said …

Wolves 22nd October 2016

Before I start my blog today, I want to pay my respects to Helen Eyre and her family on this difficult day. Today marks the one year passing of young Leeds fan Skye Thompson who died suddenly aged 17. She will always be remembered by her family’s brave decision to donate four of her organs …

Wigan 18th October 2016

There was a nip in the air and it felt icy, so I wasn’t looking forward to being cold as we headed to Elland Road. We pulled off the M621 onto the roundabout and were the first in the queue as the traffic lights turned to red. How your life can flash in front of …
