Occasional poster on Reg and all-round good lad. Spotted crossing Elland Road near the McDonalds at approx 2.50pm yesterday replete in maroon top and jeans. No pics as I was driving n' that. 9/10?

There were reports of a bloke driving down Elland Rd shortly before kick off shouting out of the car window 'you bunch of fuckin mugs' and flicking Vs to everybody.

Coincidence?

As I drove past watching Dad's with their lads, couples, pensioners, and all these myriad of different folk heading to the ground, what hit me was that no matter what bastards are in charge of their beloved club they as fans will carry on and carry on going because to stop would mean that the corporate enemy had beaten them. Quite impressive and inspiring if I'm honest.

Don't worry normal service of Leeds fan bating will resume shortly.

At least we won.

Otherwise we'd have to totally duff you up.

One of the main reasons I go to Leeds games is to meet mates who I generally only see at Leeds games.  It's because of football too that I have joined two or three website forums which otherwise I probably wouldn't have gone near.  What sort of impressed you Dock yesterday, is maybe similar to the feeling a lot of us Leeds fans experience at the matches, and this camaraderie and friendship is massive, especially when the team and club is going through shit times.  A lot of us do argue like fuckwits in a nettle bed but what the hell.

Dock, do you mind me asking what you will/would say to your son if he ever says to you that he would like to go watch Leeds when he gets older?
Just wondering..

I'd take him along to watch them, or if he's old enough I'd give him the ticket money so he can go with his mates. In the final analysis he's my lad and I'd pay for him to go as I would with anything he may have an interest in when he's older. I would never let my opinions spoil his enthusiasm for anything as he wouldn't be old enough to know better. That's for him to suss out himself if at all. But it's all hypothetical anyway as we're hoping to have moved away from Leeds before he's even school age.

Yep, let him suss out what its all about and let him decide for himself.
Dont think that there will be much of a club left in Leeds by the time he'll want to go.
Where are you thinking of moving to?

Probably a smaller town or somewhere more out in the country. We are quite lucky because Mrs. D works from home so she can work from anywhere that has an internet connection so the only obstacle to us moving would be getting employment for me.

I doubt if anyone would be interested in you for Employment, but maybe a swap for The Future is Medieval is possible?

I'm more flexible, I can pretty much do nothing useful anywhere.
