I’ve been a season ticket holder since the 1998/99 season, and have seen the club through thick and thin, and thin, and more thin. Happily, I’ve never been more optimistic about the clubs future.
Leeds United. The team that has the best and definitely most patient fans in the world.
As a follower of a team that give more heart attacks to their fans than their pre-game burgers can, I’m a little optimistic for this season coming.
Well, Euro 2012 was certainly entertaining wasn’t it? We had some absolutely stunning displays of football, from the older generation and some new starlets. Ultimately, Spain’s superiority shone through and they won an unprecedented third major tournament on the spin. UEFA have made their selection, but we think there were a couple of unfair omissions. So sit back and enjoy our Euro 2012 XI – and let us know your XI in the comments section or by tweeting @tffblog.

How can we possibly tolerate people diving?
If I was a little bit older, I could justify this view with a long speech about the old days. I’m going to do it anyway.

Wayne Rooney has come out in the press and said that England can “hold their heads high” after their dramatic penalty exit to Italy on Sunday night.
In my opinion, Rooney shouldn’t have regained his place.
