Debut delight for Showumni

Debut delight for Showumni

Sorry for the lack of updates of late everyone. There were two people writing the site, but it seems it has now fallen solely down to myself, and I’ve been offline since the end of last season.

Anyway, with the bitter taste of Wembley still in the mouths of every Leeds fan around the world, it was important to get off to a good start and ensure we’ll be fighting for an automatic spot come May 2009. Leeds have never faired well at Wembley, and I don’t think us die-hards could bare another season in this division, or another trip to the smog.

Luckily, Gary McAllister’s lads provided us with the victory we needed, after falling 1-0 down early on. Leeds did very little to cause a threat in the first half, but came back after the break looking like a different side.┬áNew signing Showumni scored on his league debut to level the score at 1-1 before Leeds favourite Jermaine Beckford fired on to secure all three points.

A vintage second half performance as good as Leeds have given in years will have fans feeling much more optimistic about the forthcoming season, and perhaps help to wash away the bitter aftertaste of Wembley defeat.
