The Peacock and Smiley provides a fresh fan-based voice to the daily goings on at Elland Road, fronted by Charlie Sopp in his extended love affair with Leeds United and the city as a whole. Charlie’s passionate and driven, and will strive to bring you the very best, the very latest, and the very top quality opinion and news pieces coming out of Leeds several times a day.

The P&S is a joint venture between Charlie and his years of Leeds coverage, and The72.co.uk and their development and publishing expertise. With the undoubted fandom Leeds possesses, there was never a doubt that Charlie could and would make a successful blog, with the scope to be so much more in the future. If you have any ideas what you’d like to see, please get in touch with suggestions.


More about Charlie

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.
