First of all, I want to say a massive thank you to our fantastic Leeds United fans for the support since we have released our 3 CD compilation of over 200 terrace favourites from almost 60 years. Celebrity Leeds fan and all round top bloke Ralph Ineson took time out of his hectic TV and film work to record a promotion for our CD online. The minimum cost for this 3 CD compilation is just £10 with all profits going to the Leeds United Academy/Foundation. Many thanks to everyone who has bought or is about to buy this little gem.

There are many outlets to purchase, including myself Heidi Haigh, who will be in the Peacock back room next to the back door at home games or can be found in the Kop. I will also have some with me at away games. Mick Hewitt can be contacted via his email hewittprog@aol.com for any mail orders. Contact can also be made on our Facebook pages Heidi Haigh and Michael Hewitt or via dm on Twitter. The Autograph Shed kindly agreed to sell some too.

Warning: To maintain the authenticity, these recordings contain the odd sweary word or two.

Booked: Roberts, Raphinha, Harrison, Klich and Bamford.

With Pontus Jansson back at Elland Road leading out our opponents, I know there was plenty of booing but not from me. I credit him for bringing the team and the crowd back together again and for that I will always be grateful.

As the game kicked off, I found out that I’d been on the TV again as I was getting messages sent on my phone from fans around the world including Toronto and Malta. I was even mentioned on the latter as being a big Leeds fan which is appreciated. I hadn’t seen anyone pointing the camera at me this time though.

Leeds were turned around so they were attacking the Kop for the first half. Things were fairly even for the first 15 minutes before Cooper had to go off injured. When Harrison was brought on for him, there were quite a few comments as to why we hadn’t replaced a centre half with another centre half as Cresswell was on the bench. At first it looked ominous as we looked at sixes and sevens with the new formation before settling down and started attacking. Raphinha made a great pass from the wing which was cleared but he got to the clearance putting another cross in which was met in the middle by Roberts, who put the ball into the net to give Leeds an early lead. Roberts had another chance shortly afterwards but was prevented by the keeper from getting a second goal. James was once again putting in some runs but any crosses we put in were too high and easily headed away by Jansson. It was nice going into half time in the lead though.

The second half saw Leeds on the attack and won a free kick on the right when James was brought down. Raphinha sent a fantastic cross in which Ayling connected with and his header was brilliantly saved by their keeper when it looked like it was heading into the top corner of the net. Phillips went down injured and received treatment. I can’t say what happened next in the right hand corner to us as I couldn’t see, but the Brentford player got his cross in which deflected for another of their players to score.With Phillips stood at the side ready to be subbed that may have had something to do with it. With some of their tackles on us let go, but any on Brentford given straight away, the referee was surpassing himself once again. Brentford were now in a bouyant mood and their counterattack nearly brought them a second goal but Ayling made a great block to deny them, then they had another chance headed over the goal. They broke away again and this time they put the ball into the net in front of the Kop. The antics of the Brentford player then were absolutely ridiculous as he goaded fans in the corner to the left of us. It didn’t end well for him as he was on the recieving end of a plastic bottle which scored a direct hit. Whilst not condoning it because we have to be better than that, it was a stupid action in the first place and the referee was not in control of the game. After this Brentford continued to time waste as they were now leading in the game with plenty of players feigning injury. If I thought the referee was incompetent, the linesman in front of the West Stand should never be allowed to run the line at a game again. When we were caught offside so many times even when the ball hadn’t left our half, I think he needs to go back to school.

Bamford was brought on for the final onslaught to try and get something out of the game. It was good to see him back as Leeds kept attacking and Dallas came close before Roberts shot was saved by the keeper. At that time it felt like we would never get an equaliser but I said there was always time until the final whistle blew. Well my words couldn’t have been more accurate as with our corner right at the death, Bamford equalised to send Elland Road into delirious rapture. Meslier had gone up for the corner and I think he put off their defenders. Raphinha saw his corner headed on by Ayling before Bamford getting on the end of it to score. That was just desserts for all the time wasting we’d had to endure from Brentford and poetic justice as far as I was concerned. Not getting beaten at the death was very important as we got another important point and deserved it.

For those who are asking about my husband, we will know the results of everything this Thursday and will find out what his treatment options are. Your comments and thoughts are greatly appreciated. After having further bad news this week about another member of my family I’d say, make the most of things and enjoy your loved ones because you never know what is around the corner. See you at Chelsea and I look forward to meeting up with those who have ordered CDs or my book. A big thank you to Ken, Craig & Michelle and Gary for buying my books today.
