Trophy Time

We’ve reached the end of season 6 and there’s a familiar look about many of the competitions – but can I finally get my name on the honours board? Are the good times on their way back to Elland Road?

League Cup

I’m still drunk.

League cup championsA disaster of a start, but Tricky Trev galvanised us. Chelsea then kicked us a lot and broke Pessotto’s leg, but there was bedlam in my front room when Collins scored – and it had to be re-taken. The board are delighted and I get manager of the month for my efforts

Unfortunately, winning the League Cup doesn’t even get you a place in Europe. It is a very pointless endeavour, but buys me some favour with the board.

Premier League

Nothing exciting here really, Man Utd win it again. It looks like it might be a four horse race but Kinnear’s Tottenham fall apart, I’m partially responsible

Marco incidentally is the re-generarion of George Weah, signed for all of £5k. He’s some boy. I took no pleasure in this:

leeds league moneyAfter the cup final we had a great run to finish a respectable 11th. Not great but could be a lot worse. Arsenal survive on goal difference, which is incredible really. It’s obvious where our problems lie when you look at how many we scored, but look at how many we let in. The signing of Mickael Landreau from Liverpool, who was a constant menace to me at Auxerre, should help. Meanwhile, the axe is out

Champions League

Juventus deny Fergie a final spot, where they’ll face Milan, in an all Italian final, in Italy

Join us next time where we’ll find out who gets the France job and if I can get Leeds back into the top 6
