Wigan 7th March 2015

I’d had a late night watching Gladiator and after all the recent Russell Crowe frenzy on Twitter, feel that is a good omen for Leeds Fans LLP and fan ownership at Leeds United!  I was dragging my feet when I suddenly realised it was 9.30 am and the coach was due to leave Leeds at …

Ipswich 4th March 2015

A big thank you to Beano from the South Stand with his score prediction pre game.  The last words he said to us just before we left the Peacock, were that Leeds were going to win 2-1 and to trust him!  Varney was back playing for Ipswich and after two minutes it looked like the …

Watford 28th February 2015

Just as I was leaving the Peacock, I was asked what I thought the score would be today.  I said I didn’t know, as again there were things going on off the pitch that always seems to affect how we play.  So it was a great surprise when we took the lead within 7 minutes …

Boro 21st February 2015 – Leeds won 1-0

Today was going to be a hard fought game, but I was hopeful of taking something from it. As it was I had it spot on!  We got there just before kick-off and although there was a large police presence which I don’t think was needed, I didn’t see any problems.  One of these days …

Millwall 14th February 2015 – Leeds won 1-0!

I went into this game knowing that it was a six pointer fixture today.  With Millwall below us in the table, it was vital we got the points to put a bit of a gap between us and the bottom few teams.  After a visit to the Peacock first, I met Martin who I hadn’t …

Brentford 7th February 2015 – lost 1-0

What started off as a game with high hopes, ended up with a lot of frustration around Elland Road.  Accepting losing is one thing, but inept referees contributing to it is another.  We had started off brightly enough and weren’t playing too badly, but didn’t have that killer edge to us today.  We also left …

Fan Ownership of Leeds United – 24th January 2015

I attended the Together Leeds meeting 2 today with an open mind.  I wanted to find out more about the Fan Ownership of Leeds United and had agreed to send a video in of me supporting this.  There were many familiar faces from the different fans groups such as The Supporters Club branches, LUST, SS5 …

Leeds United 1 Bournemouth league leaders 0 – 20th January 2015!

For the first time in a long while I predicted we would win! It would be a small crowd and expectations would be low so it meant all the indications would work in our favour! I am over the moon to say that we did indeed win the league leaders with a fantastic goal from …

Birmingham 17th January 2015

It took a bit of motivation to get going this morning, but I would still be going to Elland Road no matter what!  There was snow on the ground in Halifax before we set off, but it sounded like there wasn’t much in Leeds so there were no issues with the game being called off.  …

Bolton 10th January 2015

As this wasn’t too far away from Halifax, it made sense to drive there.  This meant a leisurely morning and my daughter and I got to Bolton in plenty time and parked near the Beehive pub. We went into the Beehive pre-match and it was nice to meet someone who had got my book Follow …

Sunderland 4th January 2015

An early morning start at 5.30 am after a sleepless night wasn’t a good start, only to find it was -4 and it took me 20 minutes to de-ice the car.  On the way to Leeds, BBC Radio Leeds were asking about superstitions so I tweeted a message once I had parked up.  I told …

Derby 30th December 2014

Met up with the publisher of my books Follow Me and Leeds United and Once a Leeds fan, always a Leeds fan before the game.  He is a Derby season ticket holder and we met at their statue.  I wouldn’t include that in the pictures because old habits die hard!  We went into this game …

Wigan 26th December 2014

Where do I start? An actionless packed first half where we were the bearer of a Christmas gift to Wigan with an own goal by Cooper. Although when the cross came to the right of us in the kop, there didn’t look to be any danger and I thought the ball should have been Silvestris. …

Forest 20th December 2014

Over the top stewarding, turnstiles so tight it’s a wonder anyone got through them, plus going back to the dark ages by having bars of soap in the loos!  Now I’ve got those bits out of the way I’ll concentrate on the game.  With the game being live I’m sure many have already seen the …

Fulham and Leeds Christmas party 13th December 2014

A very disappointing defeat today. I know we had a few chances in the first half from Byram and the great header from Mowat, but I couldn’t shake off the fear that Fulham would score every time they came near our penalty area. Although neither side did well in the first half at least we …

Ipswich 6th December 2014

The early morning start at 6.15 am was treacherous ice and -3, eventually getting home to Halifax in good time at 9.30 pm to +6!  Another great day from a fan’s perspective minus 85 minutes of the “football” in between!  We had a great start to the match after 4 minutes going a goal in …

Derby 29th November 2014

After a very shaky start when we were under severe pressure and panicking, it was nice to see the lads grow in stature. We had a couple of misjudges between Silvestri and the defence but then they sorted themselves out. They managed to take the game by the scruff of the neck and it was …

Blackburn 22nd November 2014

Very disappointed to come away with nothing today. In the second half when we were still a goal up Redfearn should have made changes. Bianchi had started losing a few tackles and we could see what was going to happen, although I think we see a different game higher up on the terraces to down …

Blackpool 8th November 2014

A tale of two halves again but what a great performance in the first half! Going in 3 up was great especially as we had been turned round to face the kop in the first half! Unfortunately the second half didn’t live up to the first and although we conceded one goal, it was important …

Charlton 4th November 2014

A shame that we didn’t get our first 3 points under Redfearn although I thought we were going to do until the ref gave them a penalty! Fingers crossed we get the win on Saturday against Blackpool.
