Yep, I was going to suggest looking for a Facebook page, but I see you're already on one, with 1 other
P.S. I won't mention the 1st match of the season

i started the kiwi whites page.

i dont know why i do this to myself. I do remember being at Elland Rd sometime in the late 90s and we beat Derby 4 -1.

Clutching at straws is the appropriate phrase your looking for

Remember it well!!!
Even worse was the 4-3 after we were 3 - 0 up!!!
My first away match was at Elland Road in 1972, Leeds won 5-0

Rason,
Nothing much happening on the Leeds United front! I`m not a football fan but my friend Sue has had a season ticket for many years, she travels fifteen miles to Elland Road for all home matches. There hasn`t been a win for a while. On BBC Look North from Leeds this week, the presenter said "Leeds were demolished by Cardiff!" I`m an All Blacks fan myself, can`t wait for the match at Twickenham next Saturday, I wonder if England will be "demolished" by the Kiwis?

Of course, you are right. if you support a team you are with them whatever. I`m fifteen miles from Leeds so I`m interested in knowing the results of the LU games.
On a different subject, Rugby League, Leeds Rhinos have just said goodbye to Brian McClennan, the Kiwi coach for three years. I will miss his accent, he was often on sports news from Leeds.

Brian Clough
My husband came from a village near Nottingham.
There was a programme recently about Brian Clough`s career, as I said, I`m not a football fan but who hasn`t heard of Brian Clough? I hadn`t realised he was with Leeds United for a while. He certainly had an interesting career in football.

This is one thing about going back that kinda worries me : Since returning to UK I've turned into a yob Gooner. Football was always in the background 'till I moved to NZ,then I SO missed it ??!! What happens about the pub thing/SKY etc ? I know there are 24hr bars in Auckland but can't see it happening somehow. Your thoughts ? (but not about Gooners)
Oh and re Leeds,why change a winning formula THAT much ?

Heal think you need to join my Kiwi whites page on Facebook.

Im young enough to have wished Clough would have worked out at Elland Rd, cant say i like him too much but you cant argue with the results he achieved.

Cant see Leeds on Sky as they only show the Premier League in NZ, although ive found a few dodgy websites to watch a game or F1 if it works out with work etc

come on the Whites.

I've had the pleasure of watching them since 1971 until 2 years ago since we came here, even though their not so good at the moment I really miss it.
Hopefully if we get promoted this season we'll see more of them on sky instead of having to watch them on the computer.I'll check out your facebook.

No - theres another one now. Not me, my husband - Leeds born and bred. We've just moved here to Auckland 4 weeks ago. I'll get him to join up.
