5.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for my brother inlaw for Christmas ! 2 Jan 2013
By Denny
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
He rates it 6 star as a life-long Leeds fan and best book he's ever read about his club. He's now passing it around the family but I'll give it a miss being a life-long Man-Utd fan ..... A must (I am told) for the dedicated Leeds fan.

The history of Leeds United is an illustrious one and under the Revie regime Leeds United had their most successful period in their history, however they could and should have won so much more. This book shows the history of Leeds United and how they were on several occasions robbed. Edwards in depth look into the European cup final in Paris, to other wrong doings such as the West Brom offside goal and other incidents. After spending a lot of time reading into the history of Leeds United I was aware of all the moments however it is very good at introducing the history for the new era of Leeds fans. Edwards has sources that for the first time really brought the stories to life. Many non Leeds fans may look at this book and think, its just sour grapes and I have to admit before reading it might have been a bit bitter but I was proven very wrong. The book makes references from the Risdale era and up to the 2010-11 season. Edwards does it again with a fantastic book, Leeds fan will live to love the book although it is a book that makes you angry at the injustice are club has suffered. However if you want the facts from the heat of Leeds United get this book and find out more about our history, it will create many emotions but the main one is that its a great thing to a be a Leeds fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Football really did cheat Leeds United 8 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Anyone who knows anything about football in the 1960s/70s will enjoy this book, even if it is only to re-affirm their hatred for 'Dirty Leeds'. As the book points out Leeds United were without doubt the finest team in Europe during their pomp between 64 and 74. The number of trophies they actually won is undeniably less than they should have. What this book helps to explain is how many poor refereeing decisions, dubious decisions from referees who had been bribed and the Football Leagues hatred for Leeds and Don Revie, undeniably cheated Leeds out of many more trophies. There is no glossing over it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth Uncovered 5 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is perfect. it exposes all the injustices dealt to leeds united over the past century, the ridiculous 15 point deduction which leeds overturned in style however, no-one gave leeds any credit, and it tells the tale of the tactical genius and masterclass manager Don Revie and leeds' cruel fall from grace around 2002/2003. this is an absaloute must read for all leeds utd fans, and all fair football fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 6 Nov 2011
By Brett
Format:Paperback
Having read Gary's previous books, this took a different line as it was all about LUFC. I couldn't put it down and thought his research was as thorough as anything I have ever read. A must for all football fans, and not just fans of Leeds United.
