RIP Kev & Chris and the end of a long season.
Elsewhere in football there is an annoying inevitability as the Salford Yanks change gear and hit form just at the right time of the season as their noisy neighbours begin to choke on the run in to the climax of the season. Much as their success offends the very soul of a die hard Leeds fan such as yours truly you can not fail to have grudging admiration for the way they gain a post Xmas impetus every year to catapult their trophy winning momentum to the fore as the season comes to an end. On a different level Barcalona's wondrous style of football has carried them through to a Champions League Semi Final clash with Chelski and the potential dream final against Real Madrid. Watching Lionel and his mates pass the ball around as if they were weaving a complex spiders web between Milan's defence was awesome. That definitely isn't the same game that other mortals play such as Billy Barndoor and big Enoch!
Not long to the end of the season now. Leeds being Leeds there will still be a few surprises on the way, the unexpected win, who is the major signing Neil has lined up? Will Capt Birdseye find some more cash in the transfer war chest for next year?..................all right maybe not. Still............
Can't wait................for the end of the season!
