The Year of The Hock draws nearer its end and as Leeds United fans celebrate Santa’s birthday, one can only imagine the kind of chaos our Massimo Cellino-led crisis club will embark on in 2015.

Approaching our seventh year following the ups and downs (mostly downs) of Leeds United, The Scratching Shed is perhaps lucky to be covering the most chaotic and unpredictable club in world football. I’d planned to write about my hopes for a calm and steady year of progress, but if I’m totally honest, we’d probably be bored with that by the end of January. It’s just not the Leeds United way.

So here’s to being Leeds United and all the drama and heartache that entails. To all you long-suffering Whites fans in every corner of the globe; here’s to the trials and tribulations, chaos and absurdity. And here’s to doing it all again next year.

Merry Christmas everyone. MOT. Merry Xmas
