It’s actually closing in on a sell-out but looks like it may fall just short of the 33k needed to fill out all the home seats. The opening of the upper tier against Fulham on a Tuesday was staggering for Leeds fans who have seen 17k at times for a mid-week game, but now that tier filling up…great times.

The home end was completely sold out on Saturday, and against Preston North End in the opening home game at Elland Road this season and judging by the feel-good factor and form we will probably sell-out in our next home game against Ipswich in a couple of weeks. Every game is huge at Elland Road, it always has been but the crowds haven’t always suggested that theory. At times in the last few years it’s been a struggle getting 20k through the gates during the week, but that won’t happen this season because we have sold over 20k in season tickets alone.

Leeds are easily averaging the highest attendance at home in the league so far this season and tomorrow night will do that no harm at all. The game is tough, Birmingham haven’t had a good start but under Harry Redknapp it’s probably a matter of time before they start hitting form and we need to make sure we keep up the levels of performance that have been pushing us to the top end of the table in the early stages of the season. A bumper crowd on Saturday, many young fans came and that will help the fans come back in the future, a quality performance from the players means entertainment was at a premium.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
