This blog is my own personal view on – well, just about everything. The actual blogging area is here. It will (hopefully) reflect my feelings about the world and the rest of creation in roughly the order suggested by the title. Life comes first – this includes the ladies in my life, wife Tracy and daughter Kate, family and friends, the Theatre and everything else I love. Following closely behind, as you can see, is Leeds United AFC.
I’ve made a separate category for Leeds United, because – although I do love the club, deeply (far too deeply for my own health and sanity) – I frequently feel ambivalent, and occasionally I just hate, loathe and detest the sight or mention of the very name. I guess this is fundamental to the nature of any passion – the dividing line between love and hate is fine, and often so blurred that there’s hardly any distinction at all.

NB: Since this blog was accepted onto the NewsNow platform, the readership figures have gone through the roof, which is most gratifying obviously. The change from before NewsNow to afterwards is in the order of 25000% – so it’s made a massive difference. In deference to this, the blog now has a more concentrated LUFC-based feel to it; however, I shall still be bothering people with my take on other matters.
To all new readers (i.e. most of you) – Welcome, lovely to meet you. It’s an honour to have you spend a little of your time on these pages. Here you will find all things Leeds United but more besides – please feel free to explore and browse, and do share your comments on the Contact page.
I would also welcome more followers, both of the blog itself and for my Twitter account @RobofLeeds – and happy reading.
