MARCHING ON TOGETHER
As a Leeds United fan I’m used to dealing with despair, disappointment and ridicule. I’ve accepted this and I am at peace with it. In fact the problem this season is that we are doing quite well, playing great football and being tipped to get back into the Premier League. The hope is killing me. Hope always leads to bitter disappointment. As I write this in early October I’m guessing by the time you read this we will have lost five in a row and will have sacked yet another manager. As I write, our arch enemy Manchester United are not having the best of times. For the first time in decade I can say my team are playing attacking, thrilling football and Man United are slow, lifeless and dull. I’ll leave a space now for the editor’s comment.
[EDITOR’S COMMENT: Mr Cummings is quite correct. Thankfully the 13 Premier League titles Manchester United have won since Leeds last managed it in 1992 are some compensation for recent form.]
