Being the nerdy type (well you know) I keep records on games I have been to. Well I gave away nearly all my away games programmes ('70s) - most of which I went to but have a rough idea how many I went to (maybe 100 as I couldn't make that many per season) but I have a much better idea how many home games I have been to.

So, ignoring minor games (reserves/youth/friendlies) I think that the home opener (v Arsenal, August) will be my 500th home game. I was pretty much at all home games Aug 71-Jan 73 and 79-82 (bar 2) and 85-92 (182 continuous) and 06-present (apart from a couple of unavoidable absences) but in between I have had to make do with what I could get to (118 over those 23 years).

I'd estimate that I've been to around 650-700 games in this time tho.

First game attended: leeds v Notts County (Feb 1992) we won 3-0 with a rare David Batty goal!!

Last game attended: leeds v Northampton 08/09 won 3-0

Biggest win you've seen (your team): 3-0 i think on several occasions.

Favourite all time player: (seen) - Lucas Radabe (unseen) John Charles/Billy Bremner

Your favourite or best team XI -
Martyn, Kelly, Harte, Radabe, Rui, Wallace, Batty, Dacourt, Kewell, Smith, Chapman

Would also say Andy Hughes (current) for pure dedication!! Seems to be in the game for the sport and not for the money, top top top bloke.


Figure of hate (own team): not necessarily hate but Roque Junior left a lot to be desired for a world cup winner.

Figure of hate (opponent): Cheating ponce that has recently been sold for a fortune that could feed a third world country for a year....

Best buy your team ever made: In recent years it has to be Beckford for 50k!, generally would day the investment made into the youth team during the early nineties.
