Selby White wrote:1. Why did you become a Leeds Fan ?

My parents were from Hull but supporting the Tigers growing up in 1960's London got me no cred at school so I switched to another Yorkshire club

2. If you could spend a evening meal in the company of any current Leeds player who would it be ?

I think Alioski would have a few tales to tell but I'm going to plump for Stewart Dallas as he seems a decent sort, not your typical thick footballer

3. If you could spend a evening meal in the company of any former Leeds player who would it be ?

Vinnie Jones would be pretty entertaining as would Frank Worthington's stories of clubbing in Leeds but I'm going for Johnny Giles in the hope of hearing some previously unknown gem about the Revie years

4. What is your favourite Leeds match of all time ?

Of those that I attended I could justifibly say my first ever which was a 5-0 thrashing of Fulham at Craven Cottage in 1968. We also beat Derby at their place by the same score in March 1998 (?) which I saw on TV; Harry Kewell was just emerging

5. Biggest disappointment

The injusticies of the 1975 European Cup final

6. How many Leeds Shirts do you own ?

Two, neither of which fit me :oops:

7. Any other Leeds collectable items ?

Plenty of programmes from the 70's and 80's. A small postcard autographed by Billy Bremner

8. Favourite current player ?

Phillips for his development and consistency

9. Favourite player of all time ?

Tough call between Norman Hunter and Tony Currie

10. Do you believe we will go up next season ?

Gianni Alioski, to see how long he could sit still for.

Hilarious! :lol: :lol: :lol: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Selby White wrote:1. Why did you become a Leeds Fan ?
Have 2 elder brothers who were Leeds fans when I started to get into football, so I just followed them. Despite the fact we lived in Huddersfield, all the family except me were born in Barrow-in-Furness so they didn't have any allegiance to the town.

2. If you could spend a evening meal in the company of any current Leeds player who would it be ?
Probably Ayling or Jansson, both seem like they'd be good for a laugh


3. If you could spend a evening meal in the company of any former Leeds player who would it be ?
James Milner to try and talk him into coming back for next season or any player from the Revie era

4. What is your favourite Leeds match of all time ?
Leeds 2 Leicester 1 1990. Last home match of the season and on the brink of promotion, for a few minutes everyone thought we'd done it on that day.

5. What is your biggest disappointment been a Leeds fan ?
15 minutes either side of half time against Derby in the play-off this season.

6. How many Leeds Shirts do you own ?
Around a dozen

7. Any other Leeds collectable items ?
A few signed shirts including a replica 1972 Cup Final shirt signed by 9 players which is my most prized Leeds item. Also a couple of player issued / worn training tops from a few years ago (one of them is Ben Parker's)

8. Favourite current player ?
Stuart Dallas, always gives his best no matter what position he's asked to play

9. Favourite player of all time ?
Eddie Gray

10. Do you believe we will go up next season ?
Yes if Bielsa stays and we don't suffer as many injuries as we did this season
There's light at the end of the tunnel.

1. Why did you become a Leeds Fan ?
My grandad took me to my first game when I was around 5 or 6, I don’t remember much other than it was against Liverpool. The atmosphere was fantastic, even though we were sat down in the West Stand

2. If you could spend a evening meal in the company of any current Leeds player who would it be ?
i chatted to a few of the players at the Player Of The Year Awards, I’d probably go with Pontus

3. If you could spend a evening meal in the company of any former Leeds player who would it be ?
Billy Bremner

4. What is your favourite Leeds match of all time ?
I always answer this one with the FA Cup game against QPR many years ago, when we came from behind to win against higher league opposition. I was on the KOP that day, when it was all standing, still remember seeing a bloke walking up Beeston Hill missing a shoe which had come off in all the mayhem :lol:

5. What is your biggest disappointment been a Leeds fan ?
As with most Leeds fans, several situations spring to mind, but I think I’d actually go with the Derby play off game this season. Heartbreaking at the end.

6. How many Leeds Shirts do you own ?
Including polo shirts, easily into double figures

7. Any other Leeds collectable items ?
Various programmes collected over the years, sadly gathering dust in the loft, autograph books, mugs, belts, dog collars (for my actual dog :D). Not sure whethe r they are ‘collectable items’

8. Favourite current player ?
Saiz was one of the best players I’ve seen in a Leeds shirt, absolutely one of my all time favourites, but I’d go with Berardi now, always had a soft spot for him, although my patience is getting tested with his disciplinary issues.

9. Favourite player of all time ?
Easy, David Batty.

10. Do you believe we will go up next season ?[/quote]
We need to get to get to that elusive 90 points, which pretty much guarantees automatic promotion. To do that, we will need to cut out the silly losses we had this season, e.g Birmingham, Hull and QPR.

Fair point Sir John, there are a few others too.

Yes spot on. That's when I knew we wouldn't go up.
