Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how long you've supported the Mighty Whites?
I'm Dan, I'm 22 and I am a freelance football commentator and massive Leeds fan. I've supported Leeds since around the turn of the millennium when I was 5/6. My first game was in 2004; an FA Cup Third Rond tie against the invincible Arsenal side, after getting the tickets as a Christmas present.
We lost 4-1 but I vividly remember the Leeds goal. We took the lead after eight minutes when a Jens Lehmann mistake let Mark Viduka tap in. The roar was the loudest thing I'd ever heard! After that, I knew I was hooked for life.
Why Leeds United?
My Dad was a Leeds fan which helped of course. Him and my older brother had a season ticket during the O'Leary era and they'd come home and I'd read all the programmes and know all the names of the players and what position they played. I'd then start to watch the odd game on telly before attending my first games. I think bizarrely enough, I became an even bigger fan once we'd dropped down to the Championship, probably because I was a bit older and had more of an understanding of the game.
Some of the other kids at school were diverting their support away from Leeds because they were struggling. But I stuck with them so I knew it was Leeds for life.
Your favourite ever players to play for Leeds?
From the Premier League days I'd say Mark Viduka, because he was such a giant powerhouse figure, but was still technically incredibly gifted and scored goals. However, from the recent era I'd say Max Gradel. He epitomised everything that a Leeds player should have. So much energy, directness and work rate, but also had matchwinning quality that others in the league simply didn't have.
What is the era that you remember the most?
The League One and Simon Grayson era. It was a tough time to be a Leeds fan, but once Simon had got his team and his ideas instilled in the set up, we played some of the most exciting attacking football I've ever seen.
Best Manager/Head Coach in that time?
Simon Grayson of course! Though Garry is a very close second.
Where is your favourite away ground or ground you've been in?
I've never been able to get to many away games due to cost and travel etc, but I'll go with the Stadium of Light. Very impressive ground.
Best game you've witnessed at Elland Road?
The Bristol Rovers game at home. It was one of those classic football fairytales that seemed so improbable, especially when they took the lead while we were down to ten men. But the spirit showed and the ball was almost like a magnet towards the Kop! Jermaine Beckford's winner is still my favourite goal by far.
It's only now you realise how significant that result was. If we 'd have bottled it after being in the top two for virtually the whole season, I'd have really struggled to see us come back up, because three failed promotion campaigns in a row would have hurt the side very badly.
Funniest, or strangest moment you've seen watching football?
I think the game was when Leeds played Watford in 2011? But I remember Luciano Becchio scoring a late equaliser, then this giant fan, must have been around 20+ stone, managed to somehow evade security and run onto the pitch. He then started slowly running away from stewards as they tried and failed to rugby tackle him to the floor! It took about five of them to finally get him off the pitch. I'm guessing he's not been a regular visitor since...
Your thoughts on the season so far?
It's certainly been a lot better that we all expected. At first, I thought Garry had made too many signings and was trying to change things too quickly. Obviously, changes were needed after last season's horror show, but I thought he overdid it, and the side looked confused early on.
Fair play to him though, he's found a way of playing and has managed to integrate all the players he brought in. The defence is without question the strongest it's been since dropping out of the Premier League; I no longer get too nervous when other teams attack us, because Kyle and Pontus are so solid, you know they'll be in the right place to head or block any effort on goal. Also, in Chris Wood we have arguably the best and certainly most in-form striker in the division. The best thing about this season is that we can grind out results without playing well, Birmingham on Friday being a prime example. Any other season, we'd have capitulated.
If Leeds do end up in the playoffs do you expect joy or heartbreak, either in the semi finals or Wembley?
We've not had the best record in our recent forays into them. Seeing as though my time supporting Leeds has coincided with disappointment, then I'll always expect heartbreak! I think it's all down to who we face. As it stands, Huddersfield will be by far the most dangerous opponents. I think we're easily good enough to dispatch Reading and Sheffield Wednesday. I'll stick my neck on the line though and say we'll win the playoffs.
We'd like to thank Dan for answering our questions and hope that he gets a chance at commentating the playoff final when Leeds win promotion.
