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...

Typhoon Talim is centred about 200 miles west of Kadena, Japan.
Talim is tracking towards the northwest at 8 mph, having highest sustained winds of 130 mph.
Talim is forecast to reach peak intensity within about 24 hours as it veers northward over the open East China Sea.
By Friday, Talim will begin to weaken as it accelerates northeastward, crossing mainland Japan from southwest to northeast. Kyushu could suffer a destructive blow of damaging winds and flooding rains with a direct hit from Talim.
Beyond Kyushu, Talim will weaken markedly as it begins a speedy transition to post tropical by the time it leaves northern Japan Sunday night or Monday.
Meanwhile, in the South China Sea, Typhoon Doksuri is centred about 260 miles east of Da Nang, Vietnam.

RSOE Alert map
Doksuri is tracking towards the west-northwest at 14 mph, has maximum sustained winds of 75 mph. Doksuri will be a strengthening typhoon as it skirts southern Hainan Island, China, on Thursday and Thursday night, local time, then will make landfall on the north-central Vietnam coast on Friday. Destructive winds and flooding rains will pose a serious threat to life and property in areas along and near landfall in Vietnam.
Inland, Doksuri will weaken quickly over highlands, losing its severe winds.
However, excessive rainfall can extend into Laos.
