Hi Davy, I’m in south Australia in the hills about 50kms out of the city of Adelaide in, believe it or not, a little settlement called ......Harrogate. :lol: It’s a farming/rural area and I have about 110 acres of it. I don’t farm it though (too hilly) we just have 5 horses, three cows and a hell of a lot of peace! The animals are just pets.

For a relatively sparsely populated area, when I first arrived here I was surprised and pleased to learn that the barber in the nearest Town to me (Woodside, about 20kms away) is.... a Leeds United supporter. Not having a hair on my head I popped into his shop just to meet him and saw his Leeds clock on his wall and he proudly showed me his ‘Leeds United’ tattooed arm. His Ute with the registration LUFC 7 was parked down the street. I think he lives in another nearby town called Lobethal so you could add him if you like. It’s just the opposite side of Woodside to me. He was originally from Selby and we obviously chat a few times every week (in the season). Unfortunately, he’s not as upbeat as I am about our prospects this season but I’ll keep working on him. :thumbup:

That's you added to our map. Sound like my kind of place. I've been trying for a few years now to get her indoors to move to Spain but no joy (Kids/grand kids etc) so Oz is deffo out.

Keep posting mate and get the "hairdresser" to join in as well (is he a big fella?)

No mate, about 5’9”/10” slim build, fair (thinning) hair. Pete Lupton is his name and he’s on twitter and Face book I think. I’ll try to recruit him ;-)

For me my father supported Leeds and took me at a very early age. I did not make a choice it was always Leeds. They have been in my life from as early as I can remember and will remain so.

After yesterday's diabolical result, I can only think that it must be masochism!

After Forest win today and if they win their game in hand, they are only 2 points adrift.

Just been scrolling around on Youtube. Came across 'Movie archive - Time of Our Lives'. Big Jack, Paul Reaney and Norman Hunter being interviewed. Brilliant. Video done about 18 months ago.
