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...

Flash floods have devastated for a second time in less than a year the town of Mandra in Attica, just outside Athens.
Unseasonable extreme rains- unheard of in Greece in the summer months- has left much of the Greek mainland drenched.
Flooding and rivers overflowing their banks were reported in regions throughout the mainland, including Larisa.
The town of Mandra, where 24 people lost their lives last November during torrential rains and extreme flooding, was hard hit again.
No loss of life was reported but numerous residents posted videos on Facebook that showed the force off the water that transformed streets into raging rivers.
The torrential rain of this type is uncommon in Greece especially at the height of summer, where poor infrastructure can leave citizens vulnerable to flooding.
Flash floods killed at least 24 people, made scores homeless and destroyed infrastructure in Greece after a raging torrent inundated two coastal towns west of Athens last November.
