another step closer to 30

So yesterday was my 28th birthday I'm another year closer to 30 as my wife keeps reminding me but once again  I feel very lucky to have such great friends and family who made it a great day for me and especially to my wife who spoilt me once again with lots of nice clothes and to my parents & best friends Dave and Gael who contributed even more money to our savings they will between them own at least 2 thirds of what the money is going towards !

we went out for a nice meal at the Slug & Lettuce in Gunwharf (portsmouth) and followed that with a trip to the cinema to watch Chronicle.

Once again thanks to the following people , Jenny , Rob , Ally , Paddy , Jenny , Mark , Ashleigh , Danny , Jodie , Sean , Gael & Dave

Its been a while

Well it certainly has been a while since my last post , a little over 2 months in fact so I thought it was a bout time i got on with a bit of blogging . Part of the reason for my lack of posts is the absolute lack of anything interesting to write about but this previous week has been pretty busy for things I take a interest in.

Lets start with the Royal Rumble last Sunday night as a wwe ppv in the current era i thought it was a very good show the main event match the rumble it self was a step up from last years 40 man boring effort with a nice win for the great white (is that racist) Sheamus which should signal a big push for him this coming year.

It was also the closing of the transfer window on Tuesday evening and Leeds managed to do one deal for young Tottenham right back Adam Smith who came in on loan for the remainder of the season , not thrilling but a position we did need some new additions in .

But the big news coming out of Elland Road this week is the sacking of manager Simon Grayson who after 3 years of working under Ken Bates finally bit the bullet , for me i feel it was about the right time to make a change as long as we get the right man in to follow him but there have been some very disrespectful comment from chairman Ken Bates today regarding the situation and his former employee the following quotes have been taken straight from 

Bates claimed 

 "At 30 players, we have one of the largest squads in the Championship and bigger than some in the Premier League.

"We spent over £12m on wages so why are people blaming me for the recent results?
"All the money we have received has gone back into the squad. The manager decides who he wants to buy, we as the board just pay for it. I only said no once."
The last statement is one that has got the ire of Leeds fans up when looking through our team if not squad they are a bunch of free transfer players with the rest made up from loans and very low cost transfers with Ross McCormack being our highest fee paid for a player in recent years at a believed 300k .

And finally i would like to direct you all over to my friends new Wrestling blog he has quite strong opinions about WWE so hit him up here proffits piledriver and be sure to leave a comment
