Let's all laugh at Leeds!

Let's all laugh at Leeds!
We were the lucky ones - travelling up early and enjoying an afternoon in the city's alehouses (especially the wonderful Grove) before our team applied the coup de grace. We saw it all - ruddy marvellous!

It reminded me of my trips to the Bell at Tillington where the gents urinal at one stage consisted of a large white marble slab which was emblazoned with the single word 'Leeds'. Many an evening found me taking a certain childish pleasure as I recycled several pints of Wye Valley Bitter all over 'Leeds'. Now my club Hereford United have done it for real.

Sadly the marble has now been replaced by a soulless and anonymous trough. Perhaps its yet another metaphor for the decline at Elland Road.

The night after our triumph in Leeds we went for more celebratory beers at the Chequers in Leominster. My eye was immediately drawn to a pump clip bearing the words 'Leeds Pale'. I wasn't sure if it was a beer, a newspaper headline or just a description of how Leeds' fans were feeling at the time.

Anyway it tasted pretty damn good and all the sweeter for the triumph the night before. The new, young Leeds Brewery seemed to have more going for it than the ailing football club.

Leeds' plight was probably summed up by their desperation in the transfer market. How could a club that once fielded a strike force of Mick Jones and Allan Clarke wste what little money it had on that much derided donkey Anthony Elding?

Lets face it, he was cr*p at Stevenage and, much as I like having a laugh at Leeds' expense, even I felt a twinge of sympathy for anyone prepared to take a chance on 'Eldinho'.

Mind you, they probably deserved each other.

Oh look you hate us yet 41% of your poll at the moment cannot wait for us to come. Leeds once again will subsidise most clubs in this Division by ensuring your highest gates of the season.
