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...

Strange times: Two fully-grown, "aggressive" wild boars attack people in Heide Germany injuring four after entering shops in the city

Four people were injured after squealing boars descended on the small city of Heide in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein on Friday morning.
Two fully-grown, "aggressive" wild boars - a male and a female - stormed into the city center shortly after 9 a.m. according to local police statements.
The male then entered the building of a local bank and began attacking people inside before a local hunter was able to shoot and kill the animal.
The second boar managed to escape amid the commotion.
Before the shot was fired, emergency services had used ladders to evacuate people from the building's upper-story windows.
Earlier in the day, the male boar had injured a woman after entering an optician's.
Christina Norden, a local journalist, shared on Twitter a video of the boar roaming the shop.
News agency dpa reported that the boar had injured the bank's branch manager's leg.
Local broadcaster NDR said one man had lost part of his finger in the attack.
The town's mayor, Ulf Stecher, had witnessed the incident and told dpa that police had allowed the hunter to shoot the boar because their own weapons were too powerful.
The police said local hunters were unable to find the sow, which was now likely to be roaming free on the outskirts of Heide.
They've advised the public not to approach her.
Friday's incident is the second high-profile wild boar attack in Germany this year.
In January, an errant herd of boars injured three people near Berlin's Tegel airport.
Berlin is particularly notorious for wild boar attacks in the winter months when around 4,000 to 6,000 Central European boars enter the urban areas of the city.
Speaking on Friday in Heide, Stecher told dpa it had been "a very unusual situation."
"I would have never thought that we would ever find ourselves in such a dangerous situation."
