And We've Had Our Ups and Downs: 100 Years - Leeds United and Leeds City 1905-2005And We've Had Our Ups and Downs: 100 Years - Leeds United and Leeds City 1905-2005

Professional football in the city of Leeds was initiated in August 1904, when 50 people at the Griffin Hotel on Boar Lane were told: 'the time is ripe for a good association club in Leeds' and a resolution to form Leeds City was passed. Telling the complete story of Leeds City and Leeds United, "and we've had our ups and downs" charts the history, season by season, from City's admission to the football league in 1905, the expulsion of the club in 1919, the rise of Leeds United from the ashes and the adventures of the club in domestic and European competitions. Supported by statistics for each season, every championship triumph, promotion, relegation, cup battle and tale of woe are recalled during a century of drama, mishap and adventure. And recalling the deeds of stars from yesteryear to the present day - Billy McLeod, Jim Baker, Ernie Hart, Willis Edwards, John Charles, Billy Bremner, Norman Hunter, Gordon Strachan, Gary Kelly and Lucas Radebe - the nostalgia is unrelenting.

Leeds United on Trial: The Inside Story of an Astonishing YearLeeds United on Trial: The Inside Story of an Astonishing Year

Leeds on Trial is the explosive inside account of the season that transformed a youthful, inexperienced side into one of the most feared in Europe, in the process confirming their young manager as the brightest prospect of his generation. It was a season of high drama both on and off the field: the trial of Lee Bowyer and Jonathan Woodgate dominated both headlines and players' thoughts alike; the 18 million signing of Rio Ferdinand broke the British transfer record; an incredible run of injuries to key players such as David Batty and Harry Kewell saw Leeds drop twenty points at home by Christmas and slump to fourteenth place in the table.

But in Europe, O'Leary's young team had grown from boys to men. Leeds came through a group boasting Barcelona and AC Milan, and then one featuring Real Madrid and Lazio. And once O'Leary's side was restored to full strength, the team powered through the early months of 2001 towards their season's extraordinary climax: a high tension Premiership duel with Liverpool and a battle with Valencia for a place in the Champion's League final. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Leeds United: Trials and TribulationsLeeds United: Trials and Tribulations

Leeds United's freefall from championship contenders and Champions League semi-finalists in 2000 to relegation battlers in 2004 is one of the most spectacular stories in Premiership history. Theirs is a story of financial mismanagement on a grand scale, brought about by a naive belief that their living dream would go on forever. Under the chairmanship of Peter Ridsdale and management of David O'Leary they thought big, spent big and won nothing, leading the club to the brink of administration. Against this background of financial uncertainty, Leeds United have had a roller coaster four years on and off the pitch. The trials of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer and Michael Duberry following a late-night affray in Leeds city centre were a daily distraction for a club holding such lofty ambitions. Yet they continued to play well until Christmas 2001 when O'Leary went into print with his outrageous tome, Leeds United on Trial, following which he was sacked and replaced by Terry Venables. After a short and turbulent period as manager, Venables was then replaced by Peter Reid. A poor run of results saw Reid sacked and he soon became the third manager in quick succession to be owed a substanti

Looking for Eric: In Search of the Leeds GreatsLooking for Eric: In Search of the Leeds Greats

Ever since a 'dodgy' referee and a crackly transistor radio reduced his family to tears as they listened to the 1975 European Cup final, Rick Broadbent has been both blessed and cursed to be a Leeds United fan. This is the story of his quest to track down the legends of Elland Road and discover if they lived, breathed, ate, slept, loved and hated Leeds just as he had - or was it just a day job? In the course of his travels, Broadbent gathers first-hand accounts of the best and worst moments in the club's history, including the championship triumphs, cup shocks and the European controversies, as well as unearthing some stories and anecdotes. We hear Peter Lorimer's description of Don Revie's neuroses, learn the real reasons behind Gordon Strachan's departure, appreciate Tony Currie's account of his battle with the bottle and discover who had a bust-up with the legendary Pele. Weaving portraits of players such as Billy Bremner and Eddie Gray into a history of the club that has inspired such extremes of emotion, this analyses the effects of the court case that tore the club asunder, the sacking of David O'Leary and the sale of Rio Ferdinand. Including are contributions from Dominic Matteo, the new captain, and a candid interview with Peter Ridsdale, the chairman.

Love Hurts: Motorways, Madness and Leeds UnitedLove Hurts: Motorways, Madness and Leeds United

Most relationships between fans and a favourite football team go way beyond the casual. It has been described as a love affair that seldom satisfies and, most of the time, just plain hurts. So it is for the supporters of Leeds United, a club with a big reputation but little to show for it in recent years. This book tells the story of some of those supporters during the 1996-97 season, detailed and photographed by an author for whom following Leeds is a labour of love.

Marching on Together: My Life at Leeds UnitedMarching on Together: My Life at Leeds United

Gray takes readers back to his home city of Glasgow, explaining how he developed his skills as aboy. No less intriguing is Gray's account of what life was like for him in the ten years in which he was not involved with Leeds and the upsurge in his fortunes since his return to the club in 1995.

The Leeds United StoryThe Leeds United Story

Formed in 1919 from the ashes of Leeds City, Leeds United have a proud history, although they had to wait until the dawn of the Don Revie era in the 1960s before they began to achieve major honours - League Championship, FA Cup, League Cup and Fairs Cup, as well as a place in the European Cup Final. A spell in the old Second Division followed before Howard Wilkinson restored the club to the top flight and in 1992 guided them to another League Championship. That year The Leeds United Story was first published by Breedon. The authorititave text was warmly received by United supporters and became a sell-out. Ten years on, the authors have revised and updated their book as United look towards the 2002-03 season with an exciting young team and high hopes of Premiership glory. The result will prove compelling reading for Leeds fans of all ages. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
