Re: List & Odds for Next Leeds Manager

Definitely not Steve McClaren according to Phil Hay so that’s one bullet dodged .

Re: New Club Badge

Phil Hay is reporting that there will be a rethink based on the feedback today . Doesn’t sound like it’s going ahead in its current guise .

Re: Greatest Manager Of All Time

I googled this and it was Ferguson every time . And his achievements at Aberdeen ending the Old Firm domination ( at the time ) cannot be overlooked .

Re: The things you detest about Christmas

I was in the same boat mate spending over thirty years in retail management. In the end I had to get out before I had a nervous breakdown Welcome back Billie :tup: how did the house move go ? Retail definitely got harder post 2008 . It was all about cost cutting until there was nothing left to cut ...

Re: The things you detest about Christmas

As a retired retailer , my two pet hates were being the last person out of the shop on Xmas Eve ( anything between 8 and 9pm ) . Or being key holder over Xmas . I’ve spent many an Xmas Day in store sorting out alarm problems , freezers and fridges breaking down etc .

Re: Rodney Bewes

Grew up watching Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads . Loved it . Funny and occasionally very moving . Read on the news that James Bolam and Rodney Bewes fell out 40 years ago and haven’t spoken since . How sad .

Re: Harry Kewell on the Brink

Are you staying Sussex Billie ? We’re moving to the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. I think my nearest league side is probably Cheltenham Town , an upgrade ( just ! ) on Crawley Town . Haven’t moved house for 16 years ( we moved around Crawley a bit before then ) so it’s been a pretty hectic few mont...

Harry Kewell on the Brink

I’m moving house on Friday and leaving Crawley after living here 20 years but Harry Kewell may be gone before me ! Clearly hated by the fans

Re: Rest in Peace, Malcolm Young

They were great live , although would have loved to have seen Bon Scott . I was going to see them again last year but cancelled when Brian Johnson had to quit because of hearing problems . Probably now time for them to call it a day .

Re: Brentford v Leeds - Team,News,Reports & Ratings

I remember reading David Niven’s book “ Bring on the empty Horses “ . He was very good friends with Errol Flynn . He said of him “ you always knew exactly where you were with Errol because he always let you down “ . Sums up my ( and I suspect a number of others) relationship with Leeds United .
