Cheers Zigzag Some good answers there :)

Cheers, some tricky questions there, so here goes

1, Why Leeds?
As I was born & bred in the Dewsbury/Batley area they were my local team, my dad supported them as well, and at the time I became interested in football (early 70s) they were the best team in the country, which did of course made it easier to support them.
2. All time favourite player Leeds or otherwise?
Over the years Ive had many favourite players in the side of the time, any of the great Revie era players, through to Currie, Worthington, McKenzie, Baird, Chapman, Kewell, Bridges, Bowyer, and even Michael Brown. But to pick my all time favourite I would go back to my first favourite player, Sniffer number 8 Allan Clarke.
3.Should the fans have more of a say in the running of the club? (trick question lol)
Tricky. Though I would like to see some form of fan representation on the board I fear that that is a utopian ideal. Its hard enough to get a bunch of fans down the pub to agree on all things football, widen that to a broader fan base and a consensus becomes harder to achieve (particularly as with most things not just football or Leeds I tend to think there is a vocal minority and a silent majority with opposing views), add in an owner, any owner, who has invested £Ms of thier own money and why should they listen to the fans who havent brought as much cash, if any, to the table. Id like it to happen, but can only see pitfalls if it does.
4. Three words to describe how you feel about Leeds?
Joy frustration equally
5. What is your best ever football moment? Leeds or other...
A great many good moments, the first time a caught a volley sweetly and scored a screamer aged about 8, a brilliant goal at school aged about 14 that I can still replay it in my head today, Clarke at Wembley in 1972. But probably my best moments are from the 1991-92 season, I cant define one specifically (ducking the question), but that season has many special memories for me.
6. What team do you hate the most and why?
Can I duck this one too, as Ive grown older Ive lost my hatred for other clubs, in fact as money has increasingly taken over the game Ive lost interest in most of football outside of LUFC, I despise the Premier League and what it has become and I have no interest in it, as a consequence I dont hate any other teams as Im not interested in them.
7. Favourite TV show of all time?
So many to choose from, I wont go for a comedy as my tastes have changed as Ive got older, I do enjoy a good drama and Morse is a contender here, Wacky Races, Scooby Doo, and Blue Peter were unmissable as a kid, but if I have to go for one show that has provided me with entertainment throughout most of my life it would be Match of the Day
8. Who was the first celebrity you had a crush on?
Can I have all of Pans People
9. Girl of your dreams happens to live in Lancashire. Do you 1. Dump her right away 2. Get her up the duff then dump her 3. The war of the roses is over and go for it big time
3) Nothing should get in the way of true love, so if shes seen the light then why not let her enjoy going out with a Yorkshireman, though she would have to move over the Pennines if it were to last
10. Beer Wine Spirits?
In the pub, beer (lager actually), or decent scrumpy cider (luckily I now live in a good cider producing area)
In the garden on a hot summers afternoon listening to TMS, then a G&T goes down well (thats the only spirit Ill entertain)
But my main choice of tipple is a bottle of wine shared with the Mrs watching the telly, I have a fondness for New World wines but am finding reds increasingly disagree with my stomach unfortunatley as I do like a good strong red, so now Im almost exclusively whites and despite its fall from fashion my favourite would be a Chardonnay.

Nice one
