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...

Deadly torrential rains cause havoc and destruction in Northern Italy

Little more than two weeks after Italian scientists warned that climate change had put much of the country at risk of flooding, parts of the northwest have been inundated by heavy rain.
Torrential downpours caused the Piedmont region's Tanaro river to burst its banks, prompting local officials to ask the government to declare a state of emergency.
Two days of continual rain has had a similar impact on Turin, where the Po river also flooded.
The region of Liguria has also been hit hard, and a red alert warning for bad weather issued. Meteorologists have warned of possible gale force winds sweeping in over the coast.
In Ventimiglia, near the border with France, five migrants were reportedly swept away after a swell hit the bridge they were living under.
Four were saved, but a Nigerian man is still missing, presumed drowned.
There have been no other reports of casualties.
