Inside Old Elland Road
A great shot here from the back of the Kop at Elland Road looking down at how Elland Road used to be. At the South of the ground you can see the old Scratching Shed formerly known as The Terrace, in the 1920's this stand was covered with the barrel shaped roof we see in the picture and The Terrace became known as the Scratching Shed. Around the same time the stand to the left of the pitch was built that run along the entire length of the pitch, this stand acquired the name The Lowfields. Both the Lowfields and Scratching Shed are no longer part of Elland Road. The Scratching Shed was pulled down in 1974 and in its place came The South Stand we have today. The Lowfields stand was demolished in 1992 to make way for the East Stand.

Those Lowfield Gates
Claasic shot here of the rear of the Lowfields Stand at Elland Road. The gates shown in the pic were for the Leeds United fans which were exactly adjacent to the away supporter turnstiles. The Lowfields Stand was erected in the 1920's and the lower tier terracing ran the entire length of the East side of Elland Road. The seated upper tier with roof stretched over half the distance of the terracing. In 1992 the Lowfields Stand was demolished to make way for the new all seater East Stand.

The Bench Swap
The Leeds United manager in front of the new Leeds United dugout, formerly known as the away dugout, at the bottom of the West Stand here. The United manager decided to use the dugout that used to be for the away team for the start of the 2013-14 season, the new dugout is nearer the Gelderd End and gives a better view of the action at that side of the ground. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Brighton and Hove Albion at Elland Road on the 3rd August, 2013.

After Neil Warnock resigned from his position as Leeds United manager on April 1st, 2013, the Leeds board didn't waste much time in finding his replacement. It was less than a fortnight later on the 12th April that Brian McDermott was appointed as the new manager. Signing for the club on a three year contract Brian brought with him Nigel Gibbs, the two have experience working together at Reading, with Nigel becoming the clubs new Assistant Manager. McDermott's previous managerial stint saw him achieve promotion with Reading to the Premier League in 2011-12, the Berkshire club won the Play Off final after winning 15 of the last 19 games in the Championship. McDermott told Radio Leeds after he joined the club, "This is probably the only club I would come to at this stage of the season. I just want to get going now." The manager had previously stated that he would wait till the Summer to resume his managerial career. Brians first game in charge for Leeds was a tough test in the Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road, the game coming on the 13th April just a day after he signed for Leeds. United won the game 2-1.

Leeds United: Kenny, Peltier, Pearce, Lees, Warnock, Green, Murphy, Tonge, McCormack, Varney, Hunt.
Subs: Poleon for Hunt, Drury for Warnock, Smith for Varney.

Leeds United 1983-84 No.0138
A bad start for Eddie Gray's Leeds United for the season 1983-84 almost immediately ruled the team out for any sort of promotion push. United lost six of their opening nine games which included a humiliating 5-1 away defeat to Shrewsbury Town. In the Football League Cup and an even bigger embarrassment in the First Stage after Leeds lost to Chester City 1-0 at Elland Road. At the time Chester City were placed 92nd in the Football League which has 92 member club's. In the replay United made amends with a 4-1 win at Sealand Road but Leeds were dumped out by Oxford United in the following round after a replay by the same score. The FA Cup didn't fair much better for The Whites, United were knocked out by Allan Clarke's Scunthorpe United at the Third Round stage after two replay's. It was looking grim at Elland Road the crowds were down and there was no money in the kitty for Gray to add to his squad. Gray's young team eventually managed to turn it round somewhat in the second half of the season, at times showing promotion form. From the end of January through February Leeds won five on the trot. United eventually finished the season in 10th position.

Back Row: Scott Sellars, Martin Dickinson, Mark Gavin, Neil Aspin, Tony Brown, George McCluskey, Tommy Wright.
Middle Row: Keith Mincher (Coach), Peter Gunby (Coach), Peter Barnes, Andy Ritchie, John Donnelly, Andy Watson, David Harvey, John Sheridan, Barry Murphy (Coach), Geoff Ladley (Physio).

Leeds United 2000-01 No.0179
Ten days before the start of the season 2000-01 O'Leary's Leeds team played TSV 1860 Munich at Elland Road in the 1st Leg of the 3rd Qualifying Round of the Champion's League. United won the game 2-1 with goals from Ian Harte and Alan Smith. Two weeks later The Whites finished the job and qualified proper for the competition after Leeds won the away leg 1-0 with another goal from Alan Smith. Manager O'Leary spent big for the upcoming season bringing in Australian Mark Viduka from Celtic for 6M, French Midfielder Olivier Dacourt was signed from Lens for 7.2M breaking the transfer record at Elland Road and a month into the season O'Leary swooped for Dominic Matteo coming from Liverpool for 4.75M. In the Football League Cup and Leeds were knocked out at the first stage by Tranmere Rovers 3-2 after extra time at Prenton Park. Darren Huckerby netted both the goals for Leeds. In the FA Cup and Leeds didn't fair much better, after beating Barnsley at Elland Road in the 3rd Round 1-0 with a Mark Viduka goal they were knocked out at the 4th Round stage by Liverpool 2-0 again at Elland Road. A different story in the Champions League for The Whites saw O'Leary's unfancied side reach the Semi Final stage with some memorable performances in Europe. United eventually met Spanish side Valencia in the Semi Final where their European adventure ended. After a 0-0 draw at Elland Road The Whites lost the away leg 3-0. In the League and O'Leary's young side finished 4th in the Premiership. A decent finish for United but 4th position meant no Champions League for the following season. This was significantly a crucial loss of revenue for a Leeds team that had spent big. They did however qualify for the UEFA Cup, topping off one of the most exciting seasons since the 1992 Championship win. United won 20 games, scored 64 goals and finished on 68 points.

Back Row: Michael Bridges, Michael Duberry, Robert Molenaar, Danny Milosevic, Nigel Martyn, Paul Robinson, Jonathan Woodgate, Eirik Bakke, Mark Viduka, Matthew Jones.

Tall Diamonds
When in place at Elland Road these were the tallest floodlights in Europe. Constructed in 1974 at a whopping 260 feet tall, initially three floodlights were erected. Two at either side of the Kop and the other in the South West corner. The other was put up in the South East corner adjacent to the old Lowfields four years later. The diamond shaped lights could have been seen for miles around and each light contained 55 lamps.

Besiktas Blue Line
138 admirable Leeds fans make the trip to the Besiktas Inonu Stadium, Istanbul, Turkey, with over two policemen for every one of them. A high police presence and limited ticket allocation for this game in Istanbul because of the two Leeds United fans that were murdered in the same city the season before. The Champions League 1st stage match ended in a 0-0 draw which was good enough for United to progress to the next stage. 34,485 supporters attended the game.

Leeds United: Robinson, Kelly, Woodgate, Mills, Harte, Bakke, Bowyer, Burns, Matteo; Bridges (Huckerby, then McPhail), Viduka. Unused Subs: Jones, Hay, Evans, Hackworth, Robinson.

Leeds United 1999-00 No.0176
The season 1999-00 was the first full season in charge for manager David O'Leary and for the new campaign the Irishman made numerous signings. Danny Mills came from Charlton for 4.37M million, Eirik Bakke penned for 1M coming from Norwegian outfit Sogndal and Michael Bridges came from Sunderland for 4.5M which underlined the talent O'Leary was bringing to the club. Not much progress in the Football League Cup saw United knocked out in the 4th Round by Leicester City at Filbert Street after a penalty shoot out. Leeds went a round further in the FA Cup making the 5th Round only to be knocked out by Aston Villa 3-2 at Villa Park with Ian Harte and Eirik Bakke netting for Leeds. In the UEFA Cup and Leeds United made it all the way to the Semi Final where they met Turkish side Galatasary, Leeds lost the game over two legs, The Whites went down 2-0 in Istanbul and drew the game at Elland Road 2-2 with both the Leeds goals coming from Eirik Bakke. In the League and Leeds finished in their highest spot since they won the League in 1991-92 under Howard Wilkinson. O'Leary's young team finished in third spot and with it a place in the Champion's League. United won 28 games and scored 58 goals in the process.

This season however will always be remembered for the wrong reasons. O'Leary's achievements with his young side will always be in the shadow of two incidents that are now unfortunately cemented in the history of Leeds United. The first involved the two United players Lee Bowyer and Jonathan Woodgate. While out drinking at the Majestyk night club in Leeds January, 2000 they got themselves involved in an incident which saw a man suffer injuries that resulted in an eight day stay in hospital. What made this matter worse and prompted the papers to have a field day was the man receiving the treatment was Asian. Bowyer and Woodgate were charged with causing grievous bodily harm in an allegedly racially motivated attack. The case lasted for nearly two years and from the outset the judge made it very clear that the incident was not racially motivated. This did not stop the newspapers at large heaving an all out assault on Leeds United and it didn't stop opposing fans from chanting obscene, expletives at every following game without any recourse from the authorities. It could however have stopped Leeds United from having an even more memorable time in the League. Playing under such appalling and ludicrous conditions, a result of the national newspapers assaults, must have had a significant affect on the team.

The other regrettable and devastating incident involved two Leeds United supporters. Leeds United faced the Turkish side Galatasary in the Semi Final of the UEFA Cup. The night before the game on the 5th April, 2000 two Leeds United fans Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight were murdered by a group of Galatasary supporters. Stabbed to death because allegedly they had made insults towards sections of the Istanbul public. This allegation didn't have one witness who could put Kevin or Chris at the scene of any incident. It goes without saying that if the absurd and incompetent officials within UEFA had have cancelled the following days game Leeds might have done better on the park. The game went ahead in an extremely hostile environment with little care from the Turkish police. Hateful chanting went on over the Leeds team who lost the game 2-0. As if that wasn't enough the referee was distinctly biased in the Turkish sides favour. We'll never know how badly this affected Leeds United, it was heartbreaking for everybody involved with the club. Peter Ridsdale the Leeds chairman throughout the duration of this hard time was amazing, bringing many favourable and respectful comments from people outside of the club. The baleful deeds of the Galatasary supporting scum that night will never be absolved by Leeds fans and the memory of Chris and Kevin will always be in our hearts.

Inside ER - The Cheese Wedge
The South East Corner at Elland Road commonly known as the Cheese Wedge on account of its yellow seats was constructed in September 1991 linking the Lowfields and the South Stand together. This new stand gave the away supporters at Elland Road a full corner stand to themselves, previously away supporters were housed in the paddocks at the south of the Lowfields terracing. The South East corner was initially used as the family stand until the membership outgrew the capacity of 1,710. The family membership were then moved to the bottom tier of the East Stand.

Turf It In
The Elland Road pitch here undergoing its annual makeover. Every year the turf is taken up and re-laid during the close season. Work started on the hallowed turf in mid March with groundsmen working round the clock to ensure the pitch will be ready for the new season. Norman Southernwood head groundsman told the official site, "After the last game of the season we had about a fortnight where there were several activities on the pitch, such as seven-a-side games. "Then last Thursday the top came off, on Friday it was power harrowed before we tried to get it levelled on Saturday. Since the start of the week we've been working on the edges of the pitch, as you can't work on the entire pitch with machinery. "Everything's looking alright at the moment. The weather's just gone in our favour now because the sun's come out and that warms up the ground and helps to kick on the seed. Usually within ten days after re-seeding everything's looking a bit greener."

Shane And Casper
Shane Higgs and Casper Ankergren here during their pre-match warm up at the Bescot Stadium on the 18th August, 2009 before United's League One clash with Walsall.

Ankergren was signed on loan by Dennis Wise on 31st January, 2009 from Brondby IF of Denmark. After establishing himself in the side making some match winning saves in the second half of the 2006-07 season he soon won the Elland Road faithful over and his loan deal was made permanent on 6th August, 2007 for an undisclosed fee signing on for a year. United's first choice keeper up until the start of the 2009-10 season when Ankergren lost his number one spot to Shane Higgs.

Shane Higgs was signed by Simon Grayson on the 3rd July, 2009. Coming to Leeds from Cheltenham Town while on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers Higgs signed a one year deal. Higgs put in some excellent performance during the 2009-10 pre-season friendlies which earned him the Number One jersey at Elland Road taking over from Casper Ankergren as the first choice keeper.

United were looking for their third successive league win in the game against Walsall and manager Simon Grayson chose the same side that beat Wycombe Wanderers just three days earlier. United looked the most assured outifit in the first 45 minutes and were the dominant side as Andrew Hughes, Jonathan Howson and Jermaine Beckford all added goal attempts to their tally in the first half. Beckford again had attempts on goal in the third quarter of the game testing the Walsall keeper several times. Grayson made a couple of changes on the 72nd minute bringing on Andrew Robinson and Neil Kilkenny but it was Walsall who looked the different side and their improved play brought them a penalty on the 80th minute when it was harshly decided Rui Marques brought down a Walsall player in the Leeds area. Walsall scored from the spot but United fought back almost immediately pushing up in numbers and on the 83rd minuted Leeds equalised as Bradley Johnson headed home his first goal of the season. The goal spurred Leeds on more and within four minutes United had taken a deserved lead as Rui Marques delivered a ball upfield from the defensive lines which Beckford gladly took on and the striker hammered home his third goal of the season. United kept the lead until the final whistle blew sending around half of the Bank's into raptures, 8.483 watched the game and somewhere in the region of 4,000 Leeds fans travelled from up and down the country to the West Midlands to support their team in this one.

Leeds United: Higgs, Crowe Kisnorbo, Marques, Doyle, Howson, Johnson, Hughes, Beckford, Becchio, Snodgrass.
Subs: Kilkenny for Doyle, Robinson for Hughes, Prutton for Snodgrass.
