 for the latest blog for Travels of a Leeds fan visit

Sunday, 5 August 2018

Start of a new season and end of an era.

Today marks the start of another season in the Championship for Leeds United and as ever expectations are running high amongst the mighty Whites legions of fans including yours truly.  Can Bielsa work his magic in the Elland Road Bear pit?  Will Bamford, the prancing Unicorn, flourish in a Leeds shirt? Will this year be Leeds' year?  All questions that will get answered over the coming season.  It is with a heavy heart that although I will be there in person every step of the way I won't be blogging my musings on the games.  After 11 years I have decided to retire Travels of a Leeds Fan together with the Urinal Philosophers with immediate effect.  Work and family commitments have made it more challenging to devote the time needed to produce the blog and with social media awash with Leeds United blogs, podcasts and websites I feel now is the time to gracefully retire.

It's been a blast writing the blog from the depths of depressing trips to Histon, Sutton, Hereford, Sheff Wed and many others to the sheer adrenaline fuelled elation of seeing Beckford's goals against Man U, Spurs and Bristol Rovers, Becchio's against Millwall and Boro and a certain Mr Delph's at a rain soaked Withdean against Brighton.  There were many more highs and lows but one constant has been the humour, loyalty and sheer bloody mindedness and passion of my fellow Leeds fans during my travels.

Thank you for reading my blog over the years.  I will still be going home and away so I will be there on the day they finally get promoted.................whenever that will be.  For now I would be happy with  3 points against Stoke City to get the juices flowing for another difficult season ahead.

Can't wait.
