Tom Tvedt, Idrettspresident.

I en reportasje i dagens Stavanger Aftenblad bedyrer han at hans to favorittlag er Randaberg IL og Leeds United.

Må vel bli på nett.
Noen mennesker tror at fotball gjelder liv eller død. Jeg liker ikke den innstillingen. Det er atskillig mer alvorlig enn som så. - Bill Shankly

Viasat tok post match-dekningen i Champions League til nye høyder med Liverpools elleville feiring i Roma. Hadde bare Jan Åge Fjørtoft husket at han 1) var på jobb, og 2) holder med Leeds.

Er det kjent at Fjørtoft holder med Leeds? Spilt i Sheffield United og Boro!
I scored 24 goals helping my side win promotion back to the Premier League aged just 22. Then in my first season in the top flight I had bagged an impressive 15 goals by the end of January. My form earned me an England call-up. Am I a £35m striker? No. I am Michael Ricketts, February 2002.

Fjøra holdt med Leeds i barndommen. Mht "dagens Leeds" er det vel først og fremst at han har kompiser som har spilt for/ledet klubben...

Shaun McDermott Kristiansund BK sin keeper er lidenskapelig supporter av Leeds noe denne uttalelsen viser:
Sean er som faren Leeds-fan. Da kan man ikke akkurat beskyldes for å være medgangssupporter. Han har aldri grått på en fotballbane, sier han, men innrømmer at han har grått når Leeds har rykket ned.

Leser dessverre at VG-journalist Truls C Andersen er død, bare 59 år gammel :(
RIP

 
Svend Karlsen
@svendleeds
Sad to hear fellow #LUFC fan, Truls C. Andersen, a giant in Norwegian press, has passed away at the age of 59. Truls brought English football life and culture into the lives of so many Norwegians.

The 25 celebrities you didn't know are Leeds United fans

There’s no doubting that Leeds United are one of the most famous football clubs in the country.

With lots of trophies to their name and hailing from a one-club city Leeds United’s fanbase is absolutely massive.


We’ve taken a look at some of the Elland Road team’s most famous supporters from across the globe.

There are stars from the big screen, music legends and sporting icons on this list.


There will be some you know, of course, but we’ll guarantee that there will be also others that you didn’t realise were marching on together with us all.

Famous Leeds United fans

Here’s the list of familiar faces who support Leeds United, sticking with the Whites through thick and thin.

Sir Nick Faldo

Sir Nick Faldo in action
It all starts with a big-hitter and there aren’t many bigger than former golf Ryder Cup captain, Sir Nick Faldo.


Let’s hope we see Sir Nick at Elland Road this season.


Kelly Jones

Musician Kelly Jones fell in love with Leeds United back in the 1970s
The Stereophonics frontman might be Welsh but he’s a massive fan of the club.

He fell in love with Leeds during the Don Revie era as a child in the 1970s. His big brother used to hand him down old skool Admiral kits.

Tim Booth

James' Tim Booth is friends with former Leeds United favourite Gordon Strachan
The James lead singer has been a Leeds United fan since he was eight.

In his younger years, he was a big fan of Gordon Strachan and somewhat randomly the pair are now close friends.

In an interview with the Independent, Booth said: "When we released the album Laid in 1993, I was living in Manchester, and going over to see Leeds games when he was captain.

"I left some signed copies of my album for the team and Gordon rang me up and invited me to come to a game. He said ‘those dresses you wear on the cover of the album – you're not turning up in one of them are you?’."

And the two have been mates ever since.


Ken Hom

Celebrity chef Ken Hom is said to be a Leeds United fan
The world famous chef is known to be a Leeds United fan.

However, we're not sure sure whether he floats in the wind a little because we’ve also spotted tweets where he’s admitted having a soft spot for Manchester United.

Ralph Ineson

Finchy from The Office is a Leeds United fan
Famous for being Finchy in The Office and the voice of the Dacia car adverts, Ralph is a very vocal Leeds United fan.

And he even had a role in The Damned United film based on the club.

Nasser Hussain

Former England cricket captain Nasser Hussain was a Leeds United fan
The former England cricket captain’s loyalty isn’t as strong as some others on this list.

Speaking to Mail Online back in 2014, Hussain, said: "For the first 30 years of my life I was a Leeds fan but I switched to Arsenal because I couldn’t bear the thought of taking my kids to lower-division games.

"The Western Terrace at Headingley still think I’m a Leeds fan and give me a cheer and I’m not going to tell them otherwise."

Ed Miliband

Former Labour leader Ed Miliband has said he let his Leeds United support lapse
The former Labour leader is a Leeds supporter, although he wasn’t too vocal about it when he was canvassing for votes to become Prime Minister.

In the past, he’s described himself as a ‘lapsed’ fan but we hear he’s taken more of an interest in recent years.

For those interested, brother David is an Arsenal fan.

Ardal O’Hanlon

The Irishman is famous for his role in the iconic comedy series Father Ted
The Irishman, known to millions as Dougal from Father Ted, absolutely loves Leeds United.

Speaking to The Guardian, the funnyman revealed who is favourite player is: "Johnny Giles is my favourite Leeds player, without doubt.

"He was a fierce competitor. I met him once, at a black-tie event in Dublin, which was one of the great nights of my life. Tony Currie was another great favourite, even if he only played for a short time at Leeds.

"His wife told me once that she was a big fan of My Hero (the BBC comedy show). These are the moments I treasure."

Mel B

The former Spice Girl and X Factor judge, originally from Harehills, has always been scarily passionate about her team.

Appearing on Soccer AM back in 2012, she asked: "Why are Leeds not top of the Premiership?"

Something we all ask ourselves every day.

Jeremy Paxman

The Leeds born star is a fan of the club
Many don’t actually know Paxo was born in Leeds, let alone that he’s a Leeds United fan.

The masterful interrogator would have no trouble negotiating with agents and thrashing out a good transfer deal or two.

Colin Montgomerie

Monty was known to be a Leeds United supporter
Another golf legend and, unfortunately, another who seems to have strayed.

After being a loyal Leeds United fan, Monty is known to have a fondness for Chelsea now as well.

Ricky Wilson

Pop star turned Voice judge Ricky Wilson
The Kaiser Chiefs frontman and his bandmates are Leeds United mad.

We all know the story of their love for Lucas Radebe inspiring the group’s name.

Gareth Gates

Pop Idol singer Gareth Gates
You remember him right?

The man who was runner-up on the first series of Pop Idol. Well, he makes our list of legendary Leeds fans.

Jack P Shepherd

Coronation Street's David Platt is a Leeds United fan
The man who plays David Platt in Coronation street is representing on the wrong side of the Pennines.

We don’t envy him!

Co-star Colson Smith, who plays Craig Tinker, is also known to support Leeds United.

Julian Barratt

Another comic with great taste.

Some of the random things which have happened to Leeds United down the years would probably be too far-fetched for his show, The Mighty Boosh.

Chris Moyles

The famous DJ has spoken about his favourite club on the air for many years.

The former Radio 1 man, who now hosts Radio X’s breakfast show, has even made the odd song or two about Leeds United.

Amanda Palmer

Amanda Palmer performing the Leeds United song
Speaking of songs about Leeds United, Amanda Palmer made a song about the club back in 2008.

Her track, simply called Leeds United, was inspired by losing a Leeds United football shirt given to her by Ricky Wilson of Kaiser Chiefs fame.

Stefan Edberg

The Wimbledon champion is known to be a Leeds United fan
Ask Pontus Jansson, Leeds United are massive in Scandinavia.

And tennis grandslam champion Edberg’s fandom just about proves it.

Mats Wilander

Another tennis star who is a Leeds United fan
To further emphasise our point here’s another Swedish tennis player who is a Leeds United fan.

You know what they say about Scandinavians and Leeds.

Dave Clark

Sky Sports presenter Dave Clark
The Sky Sports legend is known to be a big Leeds United fan.

He also has a huge following for the good work he does on the darts coverage.

Chris Edwards

Kasabian star Chris Edwards
Okay, so as we all probably know Tom and Serge from Kasabian are big Leicester City fans, but that isn’t true of all the members.

Guitarist Chris is actually a fan of the Elland Road side.

Josh Warrington

Boxer Josh Warrington and Leeds United's Angus Kinnear at the launch of the club's new city centre club shop
Our very own boxing champion loves Leeds United.

He was the guest of honour opening up the club's new city centre shop and he won his first world title on the hallowed turf at Elland Road.

Hugo Speer

Actor Hugo Speer
The Leeds-born Full Monty star is known to be a fan of the club.

He’s often seen at the stadium when he’s not filming TV shows and films.

Matt Bowman

Pigeon Detectives singer Matt Bowman
Leeds United have a healthy supply of musician supporters.

The performer was pleased to welcome Marcelo Bielsa’s appointment earlier this summer.

Russell Crowe

Oscar winner Russell Crowe is a passionate Leeds United fan
Yes, this is probably the one you all know but undeniably the Oscar winner is the most famous Leeds United fan.

There were rumours at one time that he was part of a consortium planning to buy the club from then-owner Massimo Cellino.

So there you have it - our guide to Leeds United’s most famous fans. Make sure to keep your eye out for them next time you are down Elland Road.

Arill Riise
@TV2Arill

Mine lag er #Aafk, det norske landslaget og #Leeds. Der har du mitt fotballiv.
Tell me - I've got to know
Tell me - Tell me before I go
Does that flame still burn, does that fire still glow
Or has it died out and melted like the snow
Tell me  Tell me
