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...

The worst outbreak of Portugal's fires in 2017 killed 64 people in June, with many dying on a road as they fled the rampant flames in their cars.
Wildfires are also ravaging north west Spain where at least three people have been reported killed and two more are missing.
The bodies of two victims were found in a van which had been travelling through burning woods in Pontevedra province.
After a weekend in which more than 100 fires started in the region of Galicia, the city of Vigo has been described as being under siege from the flames.
Weather experts say the fires on the Iberian peninsula are being fanned by strong winds from Hurricane Ophelia.
