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...

More flooding on the way! Ex-Tropical Storm Sebastien is set to smash the UK and Ireland: Sebastien has undergone a sudden strengthening in force, leaving scientists baffled


Ex-tropical storm Sebastien has transitioned into an overnight and is now re-organizing and is expected to bring severe winds into Ireland and southern England tonight and tomorrow morning along with the next batch of torrential rain which is expected to cause more flooding.

The new threat comes just hours after rains of "historic" intensity hit France and Italy once again with almost half a year's rainfall in 48 hours.  Many parts of France and Italy are once again flooded after a 'historic' amount of rain hit Western Europe once again over the weekend. In France, four people died after massive flooding that has hit southeastern France since Friday, causing major damage in the region. The historic Italian city of Venice is once again underwater just a week after the high tides caused its highest flooding on record Full story

Heavy rain is moving northeast across England and Wales. Tonight, heavy rain will continue across northern Britain. Further heavy rain and strong winds will reach the southwest by dawn the 26th. More heavy rain will push north across the UK tomorrow, along with heavy and possibly thundery showers with strong winds in south and west. The outlook for Wednesday to Friday: Wet and windy weather. The Met Office already has almost 50 flood warnings in place, see pic below.

Tropical Storm Sebastien has sparked travel chaos warnings ahead of its expected landfall on Tuesday. The storm system is heading directly for the UK after the US National Hurricane Centre (NHC) confirmed it had suddenly intensified in strength. The Atlantic’s 18th named storm of 2019, which formed last week, had initially been predicted to weaken quite quickly. However, it has undergone a sudden strengthening in force, leading to official Met Office weather warnings. Even scientists the NHC were left baffled by the surprise storm strength. The Met Office has warned that flood-ravaged areas could face yet more heavy rain over the next five days as Sebastien bears down on the country, according to The Daily Express
