    Leeds United 0 Newcastle United 1 – Our Season Starts Here?

    Leeds United at Elland Road. As a (ahem) “slightly older fan” I can remember the great Leeds team under Don Revie – Sprake, Hunter, Bremner, Giles, Gray, Lorimer, etc a great side which I was lucky enough to watch regularly and which should really have won more. They were a “hard” team who took no prisoners even by the rougher standards of those days where tackling was still allowed – (compared with the beach ball football and choreographed diving we see nowadays) and it was a joy […]

    Excited About Newcastle United’s New Season? Nope, Me Neither!

    Can this year get any crazier? Leaving aside the deadly Covid_19 plague that currently has society thoroughly disrupted and our hapless, useless Prime Minister and equally inept government in total disarray, there was the small matter of events at Newcastle United.

Or more accurately, the chance which was denied us by a Premier League that couldn’t run a drinks party in a brewery. […]
