The myriad misfortunes of Leeds United Football Club are entertainingly revisited by a die-hard fan
Between 1964 and 1992, Leeds United won 11 fabulous trophies, but the team were runners-up just as often. They missed out on many more titles and cups, not least club football's greatest prize, the European Cup, in 1975. Here, a lifelong Leeds United fan reveals why the club has dramatically lost out on victory in many of these competitions, and how it has been the victim of a pattern of serial abuse by the footballing authorities—most recently seen in the unprecedented 15-point sanction meted out at the start of the 2007-08 season. Featuring the views of former Leeds players and managers, as well as top-flight referees and diehard fans, this book examines the injustices that have befallen Leeds United and sheds new light on shocking events that have long rankled with the club's supporters.
