      [quote=soccer65;32061]Hi Jill
      Same with me was a season ticket holder at Leeds untill got married and the kids came along.Take Sam down to Elland Road when we have some spare money,its a expensive thing to do every home match.Sam plays for the Kippax Athletic U13s in the Garforth Junior League,his best position is holding midfield but the team has lost a lot of players this season and he has had to play in the centre of the defence and try and help them stay up before we leave.Player of the year 06/07 & 07/08 weas well deserved.Have played at Osset a couple of years ago when the team was in Div 1 thats when they did have a good team,now stuck in Div 2.

      Hi Andy

      Just read your post, we are 1/4 way through the process and my OT is a Leeds fan and will miss his footie but sure he can access what he needs via the internet. My question is we are avid Rugby League fans and follow both UK and Australian leagues. I know we will be able to see more games via Foxtel over there, but can you tell me are there many local teams around as i know my OT will be interested in coaching youth teams again and all the major rugby teams are down the East Coast and not found any in SA.

      Hi Andi,

      I enjoy watching rugby but don't know too much about clubs in the area for this side of sport.

      But here is a web site that I have found and hope it gives you a bit more information.

      Hi Steve,
      I was honoured enough to watch the first ever game played as Adelaide united after the two Adelaide teams amalgamated, it was bad first division stuff, but I managed to get on TV that day celebrating Adelaide united's first ever goal. to be fair i'm a charlton fan and it has been a damn site worse watching them this seaon than United, my main problem was after years of taunting Man U fans that they only lived around the corner I couldn't bring myself to chant "United" it went so far against the grain.
      They have improved quite a lot over the last few years and the games are normally packed with ex-pats trying to get their football fix, sadly the Ozzies use a meaningless word made up by the Americans to describe our wonderful game some thing called a soccer? maybe has something to do with socks?

      Smile Fellow Leeds Utd Fan


      We have just recently joined the community having found this by accident. Noticed your communication and felt compelled to reply. I am a mad Leeds Utd fan, living in Wortley, Leeds I can see the hallowed ground from my garden!!. My wife is Australian from Adelaide. We went back last year and decided that Adelaide was for us. I was recently granted my spouse visa and we should be in Adelaide by September this year. Regarding Adelaide Utd we went to watch a match whilst there last year, against local rivals Melbourne. 12,000 sell out, entertaining to watch, good night for families, good ground, 7.00 entrance fee for adults. Have been watching Aussie rules on Eurosport, I'm supporting the Crows (better kit than Port Adelaide).

      Are you from Leeds yourself? (Marching on together).

      Darren and Fiona
