    Thanks - it was good while it lasted! Just hope our financial situation isn't as bad as some think it is.

    Hopefully Mick Dray's Charlton will join us in the Championship through the play-offs.

    actually, Leeds do seem to have a large Welsh following.

    For us that would read "made up for the wilderness years with these recent glory years"! 104 years in the wilderness! At least we aren't now the biggest City in Europe not to have a had a team in the top division!

    We Arestill the smallest place to win the European Cup???

    As for Leeds, i hoped they wouldn't get promoted today, as a football neutral Leeds vs Milwall would have been the ultimate play-off game!

    What a game that would have been. Leeds vs Milwall!

    Maybe blame Yorath for that.

    I have been in his house, you know (when he was still with Christine and the kids before the scandal)

    Congrats to Leeds. I moved to Leeds 8 years ago but support Everton. Would be nice to see Leeds come up again as it is an easy away game to get to!

    I'll even say something nice about Leeds fans

    At the recent match at Charlton a young Charlton fan with cancer was paraded around the pitch with his family before going to the US for treatment. All the Leeds fans stood and applauded as he passed them. This led to the Charlton fans applauding the Leeds fans.

    but oh were 3000 yorkshiremen quiet in the 89nth minute.

    Paragraph starting "last year I had an accident that shames me"

    Even though he had long left LUFC, the family still lived in their old house in the Ring Road very close to me - I had actually been in there to visit Christine. Terry had big drink problems and this had led to marital strife. As it usually does.

    He lost control on another stretch of the Ring Road and a young girl ended up with very serious injuries. This was not looked on favourably with the locals, as you can imagine, and they shunned him.

    More local derbies for my beloved SUFC.

    Btw, thanks for the 12 points in advance.
