About me

David Watkins spent 33 years in industry working as a Finance Director for various organisations before he “retired” in 2011. ‘Leeds United in pursuit of the Premiership’ was his first published work and he followed that with six further books documenting his travels following Leeds United home and away. He has followed the fortunes of Leeds United since the 1960’s and is now a home and away season ticket holder.

We're waiting on the printers for the improved colour options. LS and CPI do already offer colour printing but it requires every page to be sent to the colour printer which is very expensive. LS are installing a new type of colour printer which will make the cost of printing the whole book much lower. CPI are experimenting with colour insert options (about £0.30 a page which is two sides). It is looking like it will be a month or so before we can start working with them to offer this service. Give me a bell if you need a hand with anything in the mean time. All the best, Oli (more) and received+3

It is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. When people like yourself tell me they have enjoyed something I have written it makes all the hard work really worthwhile. It is so easy to get a book professionally produced at little cost these days that everyone can do it. A warning though, it can take over your life! I am hoping to complete the manuscript next week after saturday's game with Leicester. Thenit is a matter of how long my various proof readers take to get through it. With a fair wind i would like to think it will be available, certainly on CN at least, by the end of May. So, go on, get your own done! (more) and bagged+3

I am closing in on completion of my second book, the manuscript should be ready in a couple of weeks. Do you remember many moons ago i asked if it was possible to include photographs in our books? Has anything changed at all in respect of this? As with all sports books, I would love to be able to include a few glossy photo pages in the middle of the new book - are you aware of any way that can be achieved within the confines of the CN /LS system?

Warnock reckons he has told those he doesnt want next season so it must be very difficult for them to give everything in that situation. I have recently done a bit of research into the emotions of watching sport and we should remember that when we do ultimately get promoted, it will be all the more sweet because of all of the negative emotions we suffered along the way! If you are ever in the Pavilion at Leeds, be sure to seek me out. Best wishes, DLW (more) and bagged+3

I cannot believe the players have given up, it's unfair on the 20,000 fans who turn up through thick and thin. Being a supporter of our once great club is not really good for your health or your wealth. But as ever On On On Keith (more) and earned+3
