I lived in Burntisland for a while as a kid ...just across the water from Edinburgh. We used to go to Raith home games

All you guys are novices at longevity as far as Leeds support goes,,,,many many years ago I was banned from this forum (under another name) for insulting Twiggster (who I think still writes a load of crap on here) so I lost any desire to contribute on this forum, I still follow LU even though I have lived in the best country in the world without doubt for 50 years (oy oy oy.) I will just remind some of you juniors of 60 or 70 years old I saw my first match at Elland road against Sunderland in 1937, I still recall Willis Edwards & one of the Milburn brothers even though I was 7 years old. I will say goodbye now as I expect Twiggster will complain about me and demand my expulsion again.

Twiggs is long gone (The "Twappening" killed him off here and waccoe,) so you're safe to post if you feel like it. I think he's exiled to facebook now.

Good to see you posting again after a few months absence Benny

Twiggs hasn't posted on MOT for years

May I ask what username did you use to post under ?

Born and brought up in the New Forest (between Southampton and Bournemouth), with no car in the family and terrible public transport.
My dad (from Edinburgh) was a mad footy fan (followed Heart home and away before moving down south) so we always watched football on the TV and played in the street. The only team I could follow closely was Leeds (who because of the scottish players were always featured in my dad's scottish paper).
It was Leeds - is Leeds - and will always be Leeds.
I chose my university (york) so I could get to games and have frequently held a season ticket. It's in the blood now, for better or worse - mostly better this season (fingers crossed).

Your dad sounds a good lad. Hearts and Leeds in your family. 8-) :tup:
