Marching On Together


Marching On Together I have had a romance with a lady since my childhood just like thousands of other people around the world who are also in love with her. I have remained in love with her through the many bad times and the few good times, my love for her has never faltered and never will. My lady's name is Leeds United and she is just five games away from returning to the English Football Premiership, after sixteen years in the football wilderness. In the sixties, seventies and early nineties my lady was known as "Super Leeds," however in 2003, my love was relegated from the English Football Premiership due to financial miss-handling by her owners. "Super Leeds," dropped down to the third tier of English football. If Leeds United can grab ten points from their last five games my lady will be back where she belongs in the higher echelons of English football and I can once more embrace my love with happiness.

Leeds 5 v 0 Stoke, 7 points needed from 4 games... Swansea City 0 v 1 Leeds United, 4 points needed from 3 games...

A strong typhoon made landfall on southwestern Japan on Tuesday, bringing heavy rain that caused floods, forcing flight cancellations and prompting local authorities to issue evacuation advisories for more than 600,000 residents.
Typhoon Malakas is expected to head northeast along Japan's Pacific coast towards Tokyo before going out into the Pacific Ocean by early Wednesday morning, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.
It will likely be downgraded to a depression by 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, the agency said.
In six prefectures in western Japan including Kumamoto, which is still recovering from strong earthquakes that hit the region earlier this year, evacuation advisories were issued for about 632,500 people, Jiji news agency said.
Jiji said two people were slightly injured in southern Kyushu, while public broadcaster NHK reported more than 100 domestic flights have been cancelled.
The Meteorological Agency said torrential rain is expected on Japan's Pacific coast towards Tuesday night, and has advised caution against floods, mudslides and high waves.
