Book Description

3 Nov 2011 When Football Was Football
Leeds, the biggest city in Britain with only one football club. That monopoly creates a passion in the local team Leeds United had famous managers like Major Frank Buckley and Raich Carter. And back in 1948-49 season the debut of a man many critics rate the greatest player seen in English football - the legendary John Charles. The makings of the modern Leeds was sparked by the appointment of Don Revie as manager in 1961. Revie inspired the creation of a sporting dynasty. No club in modern football history can match the number of home-grown players Revie had in his championship-winning squads of 1969 and 1974. Leeds won the FA Cup for the first time in their history in 1972 - the centenary of the world's most famous club knock-out trophy. After Revie left in 1974 the club had the crazy 44 day reign of Brian Clough. Howard Wilkinson's appointment as manager in 1988 to lift the club out of the Second Division and in the last season of the Football League Leeds were again crowned champions in 1992. This book takes you on the roller-coaster ride of Leeds United. It's dramatic, exhilarating and, at times, astonishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous book 17 Nov 2011
By Z. Ride
Format:Hardcover
I bought this recently for my husband for Christmas. Upon arrival, I had a quick look at it before putting it away. When I say quick look, I could still be there now. It looks fabulous, with loads of gorgeous pictures, and I am very very impressed with it.

I hesitated before purchasing it, but now I would heartily recommend it to any Leeds United fab, pre or post Revie. Superb book.

I am a passionate life long supporter of Leeds United and so was interested in the history of the club as i live in
northern ireland and seldom get to see leeds play in person. I would recommend this book to all those who support the club.
