1. 12 cities of your choice ?
Europe - Leipzig & Copenhagen
Africa - Cape Town & Jo'burg
Asia - Tokyo & Hong Kong
Australasia - Wellington & Perth
South America - Havana & Montevideo
North America - New Orleans & Nashville

2. Promotion or the FA Cup ? Real world finish and round of the cup ?
If anyone answers with the cup, they need their heads read :wtf:
Play-offs and 5th

3. What were your schoolboy dreams with regards to career ?
From 5 up : astronaut, pilot, policeman, teacher, layabout
Pretty much nailed one of 'em ;)

4. You are taking your loved one for a meal at a Italian Restaurant - what do you go for ?
I'm not going to answer this one.
I think some of you have been married too long !
What about us blokes who haven't been ? I wouldn't begin to guess, assuming you're asking us to choose for the other person ?
I've dated a lot of vegetarians for a start so that's dodgy ground from the get-go.
Besides, I really don't think I'd be with anyone who couldn't make up their own mind : I'd find that really weird and I don't think I have ever been out with a woman who'd say that to me in the first place.
I'd order olives to start with though, so we could both take our time .. :problem:

5. Pick your all time Leeds team using only Irish and Welsh players ?
These are getting silly now - what next, players born on a Tuesday ? Only water signs ? Only blue eyes ? :D

Mate, please don't take it the wrong way. I LOVE this section of the forum :)

But yeah, something else eh ??

How about the best oppo players you ever saw against us ?
A team of players you hate ?
A team of players we were rumoured to sign but never did ?

1. You've won a round the world holiday which involves visiting 12 cities of your choice, which would they be ?
One rule - They have to be two in each continent

Europe - Seville, St Petersburg
Africa - Cape Town, Marrakech
Asia - only two, ffs? :lol: Tokyo, Tbilisi
Australasia - Perth, Auckland
South America - Buenos Aires, Asuncion
North America - done most of the interesting bits, so could I swap two more European/Asian destinations? If not I'll take San Francisco and Boston.

2. Well it is start of the new season so what would you prefer, Promotion or winning the FA Cup ?
Promotion

And in the real world where do you expect us to finish and which round of the FA cup will we reach ?

Both enormously difficult SW. TC plays his second string at, eg Tranmere, in January? I'm not confident in the way I wasn't confident with so many unknowns at the beginning of last season, so a similar finish beckons

3. What were your schoolboy dreams with regards to career ?
I dredged up some old stuff that I wrote at school a while back and it said basically I'd work internationally. I very definitely wanted to emulate my father, who was a Technical Director with Alfa Laval

Did you fulfill them ?
Yes, but with major differences and downfalls

4. You are taking your loved one for a meal at a Italian Restaurant and She/he asks you to choose what do you go for (options below) ?

All served with chips and salad or potatoes and vegetables of the day
Bistecca alla Cacciatora - Sirloin steak in a mushroom, onion, peppers and cooked in a tomato red wine sauce  
Bistecca alla Formaggi - A sirloin steak topped with dolce latte cheese, asparagus, spinach served in a creamy white wine sauce  
Filletto Porcini - Fillet steak cooked in a wild mushroom, sundried tomato and red wine sauce
Filletto Sardinia - Strips of fillet steak cooked with wild mushrooms, peppers, onions and pepperoni with a touch of demi-glace sauce
Pollo Diavolo - Pan fried chicken breast strips cooked in a sauce of peppers, onions, pepperoni and fresh chillies and tomato sauce
Pollo Mediterranean - Pan fried chicken breast topped with peppers, onions mushrooms spinach and tomato sauce gratinated with mozzarella cheese -
Pollo alla King - Pan fried chicken breast strips served with King Prawns and mushrooms in a creamy white wine sauce topped with Parma ham, pecorino cheese in a creamy sauce
Agnello all Menta -Rump of lamb served in a port and minty onion sauce and served on a bed of sliced sautéed potatoes
Duck dello Mamma - Half a crispy duck on the bone, served in our own plum and brandy sauce
Duo of Pork Chops - Two pork chops grilled and served with a cremosa stilton sauce
Salmone dello Casa - Fresh fillet of salmon served with a creamy dill sauce
Filletto di Spigola -Sea bass fillets served with king prawns, cherry tomatoes in a garlic, white wine and butter sauce

Sorry but I really wouldn't give my patronage to an 'Italian' restaurant that had ANY of these things on their menu

5. Pick your all time Leeds team using only Irish and Welsh players ?
Only got as far as Sprake, Kelly, Harte, Healy, Giles, Yorath, Dallas

1. You've won a round the world holiday which involves visiting 12 cities of your choice, which would they be ?
One rule - They have to be two in each continent (Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia, South America & North America).
Aarhus in Denmark to see my mate Ole and his family, and Innsbruck, Austria.
Lalibela, Ethiopia, to see the churches carved out of the rock, and Marrakesh.
Kashgar, China, for a jaunt along the Silk Road over the Khunjerab Pass through the Korakoram mountains to Pakistan, and Ayutthaya, Thailand.
Perth, Australia and Wellington, NZ.
South America is a bit of a blind spot, to be honest. Probably somewhere up in the Andes and Rio.
San Francisco and Seattle.

2. Well it is start of the new season so what would you prefer, Promotion or winning the FA Cup ?
And in the real world where do you expect us to finish and which round of the FA cup will we reach ?

Automatic Promotion, but I'd accept the drama of the Play-offs. Not bothered about the cup, I'm afraid. It's a luxury we can think about when we've been promoted.


3. What were your schoolboy dreams with regards to career ?
To play sport for England
Did you fulfill them ?
Did I 'eck as like.

4. You are taking your loved one for a meal at a Italian Restaurant and She/he asks you to choose what do you go for (options below) ?

I wouldn't dare try. I'd only pick the wrong thing. Having said that she'd probably go for a decent lasagne

5. Pick your all time Leeds team using only Irish and Welsh players ?
That involves far too much thinking. ;)
