Best memory has to be beating Man United in the cup.
A few of my personal favourite matches:
QPR at home, Gradel with a brace. 2-0 Leeds.
Brighton at home, Wood brace and an electric atmosphere in a Leeds win.
Beating WBA 4-0 at home. What an atmosphere that night.
Derby away last season. Confirmed we were the real deal under Bielsa.
Been some cracking games amongst all the sh*t.
Highlight surely has to be Haye's mention of us being confirmed as the real deal against Derby. Still get goosebumps thinkingnof that night and how ****ing good we were after years of being crap.
Other highlights for me;
* Beckford, Somma, Snodgrass, Saiz, Klich
* Norwich 0-3 Leeds
* Lassoga v Millwall to make it 3-2 with ten men
The 16 years for me can be summed up with the memory of joining the lust members for last game of season v Leicester with the aim of Bates protests.
Bates must have been alerted to the 200 ticket changes into the east upper and sent an army of heavy security staff who repeatedly ejected people for singing against Bates. Was a nasty experience and just sums up the shysters we have had at the helm.
Henry’s winner in the FA Cup is my favorite Leeds memory
doing laps of my then office when Howson scored v Carlisle, Wembley and back in a day, nearly contracting frostbite at ER on more than one occasion, meeting some of you fine people, and LiW. Too much to mention.
Getting my picture on page 3 of the national papers after the Man U game,
Stood in the rain at Histon,
Play off despair twice,
Visiting all the grounds in div 1,
Getting my season ticket renewal form from Mr Bates and finding the cost had doubled for the championship,
Meeting Cellino at York races and him telling the lads i had scary eyes,
Season ticket costing me £80 a game for a couple of seasons around the end of Bates reign as i couldnt be bothered to go,
But I've been going since 1969-70 season so been lucky to have seen the great times so accepted it was what it was, we could say we've seen it all these last 16 years and its time to get back to where we belong, think we have been blessed with Bielsa the football has been great but he is also a truly wonderful human being, whoever follows him will have a hard act to follow, i will be glad when we get up more for our younger supporters who wont have seen the really good times and the club in general, me ? Cant say i will look forward to the PL anymore than the championship, its my club and i have done and would watch them wherever we played.
Hiding behind my chair at 1-1 against Bristol in last game in League One just before Beckford scored!
Other than that, my jaw on the ground with the way we beat Stoke in Bielsa's opening game after I'd been dreading playing the newly-relegated Prem side with pretty much the same team as before MB arrived.
I remember thinking "why on Earth is he playing Phillips?" (who I'd spent berating for most of the previous season). I really thought we were going to get a pasting!
Oh, my infamous 3/1/2010 bet.
Meet ups at whistlestop
Meeting gbz on train
Having 2 kids and getting them into leeds
Man U win
Somma goals v millwall
Bielsa’s first match
Kalvin Philips coming good
I would say around about now Mike and LIW's respective lasses are getting nervous.
