Well Brentford are only 2 points behind the automatic promotion spot in the Championship so might need a manager with PL experience.

Was he there 'with' the Man Utd officials, or did both attend the game separately for their own reasons?

Utd officials may have been there to look at Ollie Watkins, and Poch may have been there because he knows the Leeds manager.

The Utd 'official is their new PR man, who used to be a sports reporter, and someone who may have previously interviewed Poch.

Yeah spot on, however,we try not to let Geordies into our village as there are over 500 horses here and some of them are quite valuable so it's not worth the risk

So you probably have more horses than humans in your village then? These wouldn't happen to be Travellers horses by any chance
As for nice people in Leeds then none of them must support Leeds United or they are all from different parts of the UK.

We only get the travellers when they are enroute to Appleby in June and they normally stop for a week or so on the common land. The resident horses do travel a bit and 2 of them placed in the St Leger back in September.....

How many sheep in your village?. Are they jealous of the horses getting all the attention from the locals? Plus the horses have an advantage in that their backside is a lot higher off the ground so not as easily accessible.

The Northerners have turned on themselves, it's literally perfect. They'll wipe themselves out!

you need to improve your geography this isn't Wales. Not many sheep as the farms have been bought by the horse training fraternity. Sheep are higher up the dale where you can't farm anything else.

Being blunt, I couldn't care less.
Being more polite, it's very true, I'd rather have a beer with a Manc than someone from Portsmouth. In fact, I'd rather be tea-bagged by a goat than have to spend too much time with a proper 'Pompey' pikey. *Shudder*
