Leeds fan in peace, with a pair of binoculars, pliers and a change of clothes

Don’t mean to be funny but we have sold out every allocation in minutes this season. We sold the allocation you gave us. For away games we sell to season ticket holders first, then members who get 20% after that. We have none going on general sale ever. Norwich who we play start of Feb Sat eve 5.30 same prices as you for Friday have sold 1,500 on the first day of sales. I think your at about 1,200 ?  Mentioned prices but Derby should sell more than Norwich for an away game surely ?  You brought 952 last season which let’s be honest is poor. There you go Leeds fan no longer in peace ! 

Are you a bit odd? needy? No one, anywhere, needs reminding that Leeds have great away support, a fanbase full of twits but good numbers.

You build yourselves up to be like Man Yoo or summat when in essence your catchment size is woefully underused, you get more exiles than locals at home.

You said Leeds is cosmopolitan, the only place it's cosmopolitan is WH Smiths.

Leeds gave you one they borrowed

 

"twenty yards or thirty yards everywhere we go"

"forty yards or fifty yards, Reach is scoring goals"

I preferred the 'take your flag, eff off home' 🙂

It made us all laugh Derby (behind enemy lines) & Leeds

Surprised our lot didn't go all Dale Cavese on them. Maybe some 'since I was young' #tinpot 😄

They used to park the coaches at the back of cotton lane cop shop.

My old man used to park in the small Royce’s car park round the corner from the football tavern I think it was called, away pub anyhow from my very young memory.

The toilets were on Bateman Street just off the junction with Ossie Road.

it was a flashpoint there as the away fans escort came over the bridge toward the station.

Can’t recall them but the old man made us as nippers, walk round their mobs, clutching his jacket, I used to think he was rock hard. Now I realise he was a lazy bugger and couldn’t be arsed to walk any further than he had to. Plus he had something on the car park guy, because I never once saw him pay. 😂

That corrugated alley we walked up, used to scare me silly, he’d push us through the police lines, on the way back, we’d go down it squashed with the away fans some days, learnt all my accents. Have to say the scousers always were comedians but it was a bit mental going over that bridge back to the car.

No idea what that walkway was, but it brought you up to the away end or entrance to the Ossie end, it’s forever etched in my childhood memories, am I traumatised I wonder 😂

That was Black alley and there used to be a social club for the foundry workers on the lefthand side as you headed away from the BBG.

Not backing Leeds but you did reduce their allocation to 2k which was odd and hope it isnt setting a precedent.

 

Police reduced it as no trains were running from Leeds to Derby at that time. Sounds odd, but that was why.

One of the chaps I stand with used to work a Saturday morning at Leys, have a few pints in the club, then straight to the ground.

I was a trainee accountant - until I saw the error of my ways.  Mind you, that was 25 years or so ago.....
