    Morning all,

    I'm afraid I'm fresh out of bin Laden memes, but I do come bearing a podcast episode in which I'm very pleased to have Benjamin Bloom join me as a guest.

    You'll almost certainly have seen his videos (possibly seen him around the Lane as well, he's quite distinctive and really does have lovely hair) but if not: he is a Championship enthusiast who covers games very extensively on YouTube. He also has a huge soft spot for the Blades which I'm sure you'll gather by listening.

    We covered:

    - falling in love with the Blades
    - his strangely-powerful Leeds hoodoo
    - where it all went wrong at Elland Road
    - the Championship playoff drama
    - possible players United should look at targeting next season
    - next season's Championship dark horses
    - the future of his beloved Ipswich Town

    And plenty more.

    Hope you enjoy this as much as I did, cheers for listening!

    I like him! And not just because he's the biggest Jonah in the history of Leeds United.

    And he does a very passable live version of Bohemian Rhapsody.

    Good stuff, keep it the great work and it's always good to hear from Ben, his YouTube channel is worth a subscribe.

    No-one forced you to listen.

    A great listen Ben and thanks for putting the effort in. BB is a character and with the current United love-in, it was a great call.

    Other podcasts are available.

    Have you tried "Mardy arse footy chat for ingrates" as I've heard theirs are really good.

    Benny Bloom is a video version of Deadbat.

    Some think he’s too detailed with his videos being over long and kind of boring
    But like Deadbats match reports, if you can’t make it and want all the detail (as though you’re there) then Bloom’s your man.

    He’s so knowledgable about the Championship, has real in-depth knowledge on virtually every club.
    He knows far more than your average tv pundit.

    In fact, it makes me laugh how he seems to know more about our players, tactics and formations than most of our fans.

    Hmm Google says we played Rotherham on 24th Nov then Brentford away 27th (it was midweek for sure). The Rotherham game was straight after a break and we were crap, probably our worst performance of the season.

    If you can, listen to the last 10mins of Mr Bloom’s match report of our home game against Ipswich - an excellent summary of the Wilder revolution and to hear an outsider speak about the Blades in such glowing terms nearly brought a tear to my eye and made my heart swell with pride.

    I'll give it a listen and great work getting Benjamin Bloom on, always like his videos and as you say it was funny when all the Leeds fans kept having a go at him not to attend their games because they kept losing!

    As for next season's dark horse put your money on Sheffield Wednesday, they've got a brilliant squad they just need players free from injuries and it'll be HMS piss the League! :D
