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...

As tens of thousands of residents have evacuated homes in northern New South Wales and Queensland Australian authorities fear many people may have drowned as flooding from Cyclone Debbie still grips the two states.
Yesterday flood waters continued to rise as some areas had up to “three times” their monthly rainfall.
"There could be people overnight that perished in that flood, we don't know at this stage," said Mark Morrow, from the New South Wales State Emergency Service.
"There could be some very distressing news."
Many pleas for help had gone unanswered because it was too dangerous, he said.
The worst-hit areas included Lismore and Tweed Heads in NSW, and the Gold Coast and Beaudesert in Queensland.

"Now is the time to leave. Do not delay. Evacuation orders are mandatory," New South Wales State Emergency Service said on Twitter on Thursday.
Authorities said flooding in some towns had not yet reached its peak.
In other developments:
More than 2,000 Queensland schools remained closed on Friday due to flooding
About 80,000 people lost power in NSW, adding to tens of thousands without electricity in Queensland
One town, Upper Springbrook, recorded almost 80cm (31ins) of rain on Thursday
Firefighters had "saved the lives" of at least 85 people trapped in floods, Queensland authorities said

Emergency crews may not reach some areas until Saturday, Mr Morrow said
