I also leave a little bit of headroom volume wise for if we need a goal...

I'm fully aware how ridiculous all of this is!


I watched the Blackburn game in Spanish language and when we won I went for Spanish language for the following games. I have Skysports and BT so it meant i wasn't quite watching the games live which for some reason relaxed me (slightly)
I also put predictions in the predictions league here for the last 3 games after the first one i did won. (after last few seasons I banned myself from predictions after we lost one game)
I started again because we lost to Cardiff and everyone knows the game in Cardiff in the FA cup caused all of this haha

I am not even slightly superstitious in normal life but supporting Leeds for 30 years makes you believe in voodoo and gypsy curses.

I even question why Radz hasn't looked for a gypsy to update the Revie era Elland road curse protections because something is clearly wrong.

I think its the normal day to day of being a Leeds fan. After a time It turns into a psychosis.

I was just leaving work when yesterday's match kicked off, so I streamed it in the phone. Got home 15 mins into 2nd half, but because we were winning, I continued watching on the phone, sat in front of a blank 50 inch tv :roll:

Game was on while I was at work. reception's terrible in my office.
Boss wanted to know why I missed an important meeting and was outside checking plumbing?
Well if somebody reports a foul or dangerous smell in the factory we got to check it out, ;)
Everything seemed OK.

I think wearing the same shirt or T shirt is a common thing.
Not LUFC but ITFC but I bought a new ITFC T shirt in 2014 and wore it for the first time at Blackpool a couple of days later.
We won there and that T shirt got worn during a run of games that went WWWDWWDWWW, it did get washed sometimes in between.

Now if I wear a T shirt for a game and we win that is the T shirt worn until we lose-in the last two seasons I have been frequently changing T shirts regrettably.

Never believed in superstitions or curses. I find them disrespectful to the players who put in the effort to prepare and play the game.
I can understand the mental aspect of players and managers having a superstition/routine but from a fans point of view, i find the whole thing a bit self indulgent.
