My first game I saw at Elland road was in 1937 when I was 7 years old my uncle took me to watch the Leeds v Sunderland match and they have both been my favourite teams ever since,I emigrated to "GODS COUNTRY" Australia in 1967 and Leeds are still "my team". after our recent loss to Cardiff City it jogged my memory back to the late 40s or early 50s when Leeds were drawn at home three years in a row to Cardiff in the FA cup, and on EVERY occasion Cardiff beat us 2-1 I think they are obviously our BOGEY team.......incidentally the two players in the Leeds team on my first visit to E.R.that I always remember were Willis Edwards the captain and Milburn at fullback......I must be close to being L U longest supporter, ...80 years now and still going strong.

In 1937 my uncle(who was a Leeds supporter) took me,(aged 7) to Elland Road to see my first soccer match,Sunderland were the opposition team, and I have been a staunch Leeds supporter ever since so I must be one of United's longest serving supporters (80 years) I'm afraid I deserted the Mother country in 1967 to emigrate to Australia but I still think of Leeds as "MY TEAM"...my only true disappointment with the team was in the early 1950s when for 3 years in succession they were drawn at home in the 3rd round of the FA cup to Cardiff City and lost 2-1 every year. I think the league defeat to Cardiff a few weeks ago will cost them promotion this year, however I will keep my fingers crossed and HOPE. :tup:

I think we have now blown the chance for promotion,Losing the last two games is bad for the players as much as the supporters,their confidence will be shattered,( as well as mine),......I am 88 years old and I have been saying for several years now "I shall never see my team in the top division in my life" there is SOMETHING" missing at Elland Road that was there in the 70s,I am not sure what it is ...maybe money. or is it really "good talented players?"

It now boils down to this - Leeds win , Fulham lose and overturn a 13 goal difference . Easy peasy .
