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.

A powerful "Monster" bomb cyclone Brendan continues its explosive development and rapid intensification while moving towards the British and Irish Isle: Hurricane-force winds expected

As expected, a powerful bomb cyclone Brendan continues its explosive development and rapid intensification while moving towards the British and Irish Isles – Brendan is becoming a *monster*! Central pressure is already below 945 mbar, continues deepening. Gale force winds are being pushed towards western Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, while conditions are expected to significantly worsen through the next hours as the cyclone moves closer.

Expect hurricane-force winds and major waves to deliver life-threatening conditions. Very strong winds and severe gales will impact the UK and Ireland through Monday. A large Atlantic low-pressure system, named Storm Brendan by the Irish meteorological service Met Éireann, will sweep eastwards across Ireland early on Monday, bringing very strong winds to many parts of the UK. Severe Weather Europe

The Met Office has issued a yellow wind warning for Monday afternoon and evening, this covering Northern Ireland and much of the western half of the UK, as well as northeast Scotland. Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders, said: “The UK and Ireland will turn increasingly windy on Monday, as Storm Brendan approaches, and there'll also be some heavy rain. It’s going to be particularly windy across the western half of the UK, with gusts reaching 60-70 mph along Irish Sea coastlines, the west of Scotland and perhaps some English Channel coasts - maybe even 80 mph in a few exposed places.

This is likely to cause some disruption to sea, road and air travel. “As Storm Brendan moves eastwards, strong winds will also develop across eastern parts of the UK, particularly northeast Scotland where there is also a wind warning in place.” Met Office
