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...

One of the most powerful storms on record is still a fierce threat to life as rivers rise: Storm Dennis was the 2nd once-in-a-lifetime storm in a week with another storm forming and expected to hit the UK at the weekend

The second most intense Atlantic storm ever battered Ireland and the UK this weekend bringing massive flooding and hurricane-force winds. Many communities had to be evacuated while others were totally cut off by rising waters.

The winds were incredible, gusting at more than 100 mph, (160 kmh). This was the second once in a lifetime storm is just one week and another powerful storm is forming in the Atlantic and is expected to hit the UK once again at the weekend.

Storm Dennis is sweeping across the UK this weekend, bringing with it winds of up to 70mph, heaving rain and flooding. In some areas, more than a month's rain is expected to fall in just two days. The weather chaos comes in the wake of Storm Ciara, which last weekend flooded 800 homes and left half a million people without electricity

A man has died after falling into the River Tawe in South Wales as three major incidents have been declared. A multi-agency response has been triggered as rescuers battle to get to victims by helicopter and boat. Major incidents have also been declared in Hereford and Worcester. Storm Dennis has also meant the Environment Agency declared the highest number of flood warnings and alerts on a single day in England.
