MARCH­ING ON TO­GETHER

Cotswold Life - - CUMMINGS’ GOINGS - Email: cum­mings@bbc.co.uk

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.]
