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...

At least 22 people have been killed including a baby and dozens more are feared dead after a huge 260ft section of a highway bridge collapsed during a fierce storm in Genoa, Italy.
Cars fell 300ft along with tonnes of twisted steel and concrete debris into a river, railroad tracks and an industrial zone below when the Morandi bridge gave way at 11.30am local time.
The head of the local ambulance service said there were 'dozens of dead' in what the transport minister called 'an immense tragedy.'
One witness described the carnage as an 'apocalyptic' while rescuers are fearful damaged gas lines could explode.

Incredibly, two people have been pulled alive from cars found in the mangled ruins of the bridge.
The raised highway in the Italian city of Genoa collapsed Tuesday, leaving a huge chunk of the structure missing as witnesses say vehicles may have also plummeted when the roadway crumbled.
A witness tweeted he feared there may be victims and a reporter for Italian news agency ANSA, Claudio Accogli, also said there may have been many vehicles on the highway when both roadways of the A10 motorway crumbled.
A rescue mission was underway, though Italian officials didn't immediately confirm any casualties. Authorities suspected structural weakness was the cause of the collapse, ANSA reported.
Images posted by state police and witnesses showed a huge section of the bridge missing.
Parts of the structure also landed on the rooftops of nearby buildings.
