Guess I am likely to be one of the oldest here. Born in Wortley, then primary school in Beeston. By the time I was 7 I was hooked. We could hear the crowd from our house (edge of Cross Flatts Park.) My dad took me to Elland Road on Boxing Day 1956. We played Blackpool and won 5 1, but I went through half my life thinking it had been 3 1 till I actually looked it up! Since then I have lived in Leeds, Liverpool, Chester and now just north of London. Season ticket till early 2000s but now just get to games when I can, especially the London ones.
Failed to get a Charlton ticket for first time ever, so if anyone ends up with a spare?!

Supported Leeds from about 8 years old, Peter Lorimer was a favourite back then, caught the imagination with his ferocious shooting. First ER
game was v University Craiova and I remember us winning, being pelted by coins at the bottom of the kop and then watching a police cavalry charge in the car park afterwards! Was last a season ticket holder in the 1989/90 season and was a regular for years thereafter but being a Parkinsons sufferer means I now only get to occasional games when funds/illness permits. I remain optimistic that i'll see my beloved LUFC in the Prem whilst I can still appreciate it.
Favourite player Tony Currie (With a special mention to Batts). Of the current crop you've gotta love Kalvin but for the story of how we nearly let him go and the real fist of it that he's made since, it's Klich (well apart from THAT penalty!).
MOT, ALAW.

Welcome Steve to MOT

Some great Leeds legends you've mentioned there

Sad to hear you can only manage limited games due to your illness
