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 to get that win. Having 3 points will do a heck of a lot to improve the confidence of the team and let’s hope this is the start of more to come!

A long day starting at 5.30 am and getting home at midnight saw Leeds lose 3-1 with Mowatt scoring our goal. With Neil Redfearn in charge I was hoping for a better performance which unfortunately wasn’t to be. There is a long way to go but we need to start picking up some points quickly starting with our next 2 home matches against Charlton and Blackpool. to ensure we escape from the latter end of the table very quickly.

Another day with a game of two halves. All we ask for is 90 minutes of football, it isn’t too much to ask is it? After a first half where we looked in control for most of it, we capitulated spectacularly in the second half. Defending so deep was always going to invite the opposition to attack us. I also think the first substitution was a big mistake when Mowatt was taken off and replaced with Murphy. News has now reached us that Darko Milanic has been sacked and we have now got Redfearn back in charge. He is too important to lose to the club in the long term but has my backing. Cardiff beckons next week so let’s see what difference a week brings. MOT.

An early morning start to get down to Brentford early for some of our fans who managed to get corporate tickets in the end. Back on the terraces for the first time in a long while but had a fantastic atmosphere in the first half with a proper WACCOE. Too late I realised where the video recording button was on my camera! First half wasn’t too bad with a few shots on target although Brentford missed a penalty. It’s a pity the first half seemed to have a long extension of time where Brentford scored. Unfortunately for the second half, we weren’t in it and Brentford deserved their win. It felt like we had gone backwards this week with having a new coach in Darko Milanovic but i would have liked to see Neil Redfearn assisting him for the first couple of matches and build on where he left off. Onto the next match now with Reading on Wednesday so see you there!

Well what can I say about today? We saw some of the best football seen at Elland Road for a very long time together with a fantastic atmosphere from the Leeds fans! Seeing and hearing the whole ground (apart from the town fans) singing so loud and celebrating was great. Loved it and it was great to come out of the match feeling on top of the world! Hats off to Redfearn and the team today and looking forward for more to come. A great 3-0 win which started with a fantastic strike by Austin, wow! Thought we were giving town too much sight of the ball just before half time when we broke away to the south stand when Bellusci was unlucky to hit the crossbar I think, only for Antenucci to reach the rebound to send us further into the Leeds right on half time. Couldn’t have been a better time. Doukara got a third to send us into raptures. Even when we ended up with 10 men we showed town how football should be played. A great result, 3 points and well done to everyone. Marching on Together!

Nice to see a great turn out once again from the Leeds fans but I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many empty spaces at Brum in their stands. Unfortunately I won’t be posting any photos from Bournemouth itself as I can’t get time off work for far away mid week games. I would much rather be there in person but will have to watch the beam back instead. Will be there in soul if not in person. Nice to see us get back into the match in the second half and a good goal from Mowatt. Definitely work in progress but some good signs to build on.

Nice to get a win today, although only one goal in it courtesy of a Warnock cross, it was important to get the three points after Hockadays sacking mid week. Nice to see Mowatt and Cook playing from the start too. A completely different team as of late and Silvestri performed a miracle at the end of the match to stop Bolton from equalising.

Out of the League Cup but probably best that we don’t have any extra matches than required. Murphy getting sent off meant that we were up against it from early on. A very lively Bradford side but was glad to go in at half time still at 0-0. We defended very deep in the second half and Matt Smith put us ahead with 7 minutes to go. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough for us to win the tie when they scored a cracking goal to level things. They scrambled a winning goal in the last few minutes. I felt that our players tried hard and a win may have boosted the team. Not to be so onto Saturday and see what the Bolton match brings, but it is a must have 3 points match!

We carried on the family tradition of introducing them to Leeds United from birth. My baby granddaughter Alexis attended her first match at 10 weeks old against Dundee United along with her sisters, following her mum who attended her first match at 8 months and still goes to matches. My two youngest daughters Danielle and Emily both attended their first match at 5 weeks old and have had season tickets all their lives.

Once a Leeds fan, always a Leeds fan! I am proud to announce that my second book has an official publication date of 1st September (sorry for the clash Gary Edwards but I will be getting yours!).
My book is about still following Leeds United despite the ups and downs the club has been through. It has some entries from my seventies diary, includes many more matches I’ve been to including some abroad and has memories from other fans. The memories cannot be taken away from us and are what makes our fan base special. This book also has 50 photos in it.
* I am expecting a delivery of books myself next week prior to this date.
Those people who have said they want to buy an autographed copy can therefore make arrangements direct with me.
*I can either meet up at a match and you can pay cash
*Buy one through my paypal account but please note if postage/packing is required this would be in addition to the cost of £12.99 to buy the book. Please use the contact form for postage costs and further details.
Please share this information with anyone who you think may be interested and thank you. Heidi Haigh
