Apparently he was the Radio Leeds summariser for the game against Wednesday at Elland Road. He was calling Leeds “we”. Unforgivable.

Would we have gone down if he didn’t score that? I can’t remember!


I don’t think we’ve had a relegation decider with West Ham; could be wrong

We went into the last game of 1995/6 not mathematically safe. From memory we needed to lose and two or three other results had to go against us. We were behind going into the last ten minutes or so and Newsome's goal removed any doubt but we'd have been safe regardless with those other games so it wasn't as nerve-wracking as it might have been. I think this was the season when Man City were time-wasting in the last few minutes of their match when they needed a goal to survive.

I went to school with his fellow team mate David Wetherall who moved from Wednesday to Leeds together.

 

Different story from him, he said that their contracts were up for renewal and Big Ron didn’t offer them a much improved deal whereas Howard Wilkinson’s offer was to double their salary and that’s why they left.

...and I heard from an employee at Leeds that when Wilko was trying to put in an offer, Ron was so disinterested when he was 'clearing his desk'.

Leeds didn't know if the their price they offered for one would in fact purchase Weatherall  AND Newsome, (but they wanted them both).

I always thought Wetherall was better than Newsome

Says it all. Never trust a man who doesn’t let a cuppa brew properly. Be weak as pi$$ being ready that quickly.

Hate it when he does co commentary on away games, he always likes to slag us off and when we score he sounds disappointed, complete opposite to John Pearson and Brian Laws.
