In our third and final part of Fans React, the beloved Heidi Haigh talks about the emotions she went through as Elland Road returned home.
And we play all the way for Leeds United,
Elland Road is the only place for us,
with heart and soul for the goal that’s clearly sighted,
We’re out to toast each other from that silver cup.
These words from the record Leeds United kept playing over and over again in my mind once I heard the news yesterday 28.6.17 that Elland Road was ours once again.
Then I kept bursting into song before getting all emotional and the tears started falling down my cheeks. The news gives me so much hope for the future and that once again we are being run like a proper football club.
Seeing the back of all the upset in the background couldn’t come soon enough for me. Buying Elland Road back also shows the intent of our new owner Radrizzani in that he said he would buy it back and he has done!
Elland Road is my second home as it is with thousands of other Leeds United fans and means so much to me.
Our worldwide fan base started to come back over last season where we were once again reconnected to the club and the atmosphere returned.
This is something I love and Elland Road with the fans in full voice will always be special in my eyes. Welcome back! Marching on Together!
