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 …

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 …

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 …
