Oppos View – Leeds Part 2

A bit about you:

Name: Tony Edeson 

Current home town:  Leicester (although it is a City!) 

Birthplace: Driffield, East Yorkshire 

How long have you supported your team? 45 years – 24 as Season Ticket Holders (me and my son). 

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: Atmosphere, size and passion of crowd (even through recent hard times) and playing surface. 

Favourite match played by your team & why: Everton, home in 1967 – my first trip to ER. 

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Tony Currie – what a masterful player and in an era of showmanship he was ‘Billy Smart’!! 

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Ross McCormack – had hard time when he came but persevered and has had his rewards this season. He tries 100% all match, chases back and has scored some great goals this season (none quite as good as Adam Clayton’s 25 yarder at Leicester though!!). 

Player in your squad we should most fear and why? Billy Paynter – if he plays, he is so average that he may well score a fluke hat trick!

Oppos View – Leeds Part 1

A few opposition viewpoints for our final game of the season, here's part one

A bit about you:

Name:  Brian Brookes

Current home town:  Leicester 

Birthplace:  Coventry 

How long have you supported your team? 44 years 

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: Close proximity to Pie Shop 

Favourite match played by your team & why: Leeds –v- VFB Stuttgart 4-1.(1992) We were 3-0 down from the first leg and tickets were easy to come by so I took some Leicester fans with me to show them what European football was like. 4-1 would still normally mean that we were out but the game had to be replayed as Stuttgart played an ineligible player. We won that game 2-1. Man of the Match in the 4-1 win was a certain Gary McAllister – thank-you Leicester. 

Favourite player of all time who played for your club:  Gordon Strachan 

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Becchio. Constantly working and pops up with those late goals. 

Player in your squad we should most fear and why?  Snodgrass. If he is on song then he will make the difference
