This place is not a place of honor… no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here.
The first house I bought. Number 43 (whitewashed). When I owned it, it did not have the curious second front door on the entrance to the gennal. The guttering needed replacing when I owned it, and still does now. <a href="http://www.geobloggers.com/">geotagged</a>
At the time of the Hillsborough disaster, I had left Liverpool but not yet arrived in Sheffield. At the time of the 10 year anniversary though, I was living on Leppings Lane, just a few hundred yards from the stadium. A lot of Liverpool fans came and paid their respects that day. It was very moving. And remember kids, we never, ever, buy <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillsborough_disaster#The_Sun_newspaper_controversy" rel="nofollow">The Sun</a>. <a href="http://www.geobloggers.com/" rel="nofollow">geotagged</a>
When I first moved into Leppings Lane, Wednesday were in the premiership. Attendances were high, but the police presence was too and they cordened off the surrounding streets for residents. Then Wednesday got relegated (twice!) and the Police lost interest in shepherding the poor lost souls from the lower leagues and I could never get near my house again on match day. I haven't forgiven them for that and wish them nothing but continuing misery and misfortune. My dream scenario for this season is promotion for Sheffield United and Rotherham and another relegation for Wednesday. <a href="http://www.geobloggers.com/">geotagged</a>
