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."

Leeds United 1992-93 No.0159
Before the start of the 1992-93 campaign Leeds took on Liverpool in the Charity Shield for the second time in their history. This time round it would be victory for the men in white, as United won the shield 4-3, with Eric Cantona bagging a hat trick for Leeds and Tony Dorigo scoring the other. Leeds had an early exit in the FA Cup with Arsenal winning a replay in the 4th Round at Elland Road after extra time and Leeds also went out early in the Football League Cup after they lost 2-1 away at Watford in the 3rd Round. In the League and Leeds just couldn't find their feet. With somewhat Jekyll and Hyde like performances, losing 4-1 away to Middlesborough in late August followed three days later with a 5-0 win at home against Tottenham Hotspur, saw them finish in a lowly 17th spot. Starting games as champions rather than underdogs didn't suit the United attitude and with the rest of the Division having a point to prove Leeds didn't have the answer. Leeds amazingly went all season without an away win. In the European Cup and Leeds disappointingly exited early in a two legged affair against Scottish Champions Rangers in Round 2. The previous round however saw one of the most memorable games ever at Elland Road. The German Champions Stuttgart brought a 3-0 advantage to Elland Road in the First Round, nobody gave Leeds a hope and they were underdogs once again. In the game at Elland Road and Leeds were unstoppable with a single-minded game plan of attack winning the game 4-1. With goals from Speed, Cantona, Chapman and Gary McAllister netting from the penalty spot. Stuttgart should have gone through on the away goal rule but amazingly UEFA ordered the game to be replayed because Stuttgart had fielded too many foreign players. At the neutral Nou Camp and Leeds won the replay 2-1 with goals from Strachan and Shutt.

Back Row: Chris Whyte, Gary McAllister, John Lukic, Lee Chapman, Mervyn Day, Jon Newsome, David Wetherall.
Middle Row: Alan Sutton (Physio),Mel Sterland, Steve Hodge, David Rocastle, Chris Fairclough, Carl Shutt, Eric Cantona, Mick Hennigan (Coach).

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.

Lowfields Remembered
Vintage Elland Road. A superb look at the old Lowfields Stand taken from the Gelderd End behind the goals. 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.

We're Leeds United
A Leeds United shirt here left by the owner with message at the feet of the Billy bremner Statute in support of the Flower Protest 2007. The words on the shirt read "We're Leeds United, We'll Never Be Defeated" MOT, WACCOE.

The Flower protest was created against a backdrop of one of the darkest periods in Leeds United's history. A time when the club was very close to going completely out of business and thus ending any representation for the City of Leeds in the Football League. It was an anonymous Leeds United fan who belonged to the Ultra's, a Leeds United supporters group, that came up with the idea. The Flower Protest was a concerted effort by the United faithful organised through the various Leeds United forum's on the internet and in particular WACCOE. It had the aim of showing love and support through the club's darkest hour with a display of flowers and club colours that should be laid around the Billy statue. The first shirt and flowers were laid on the 20th July by WACCOE user Bilks and the display soon gathered momentum as the word spread round. Fans of other teams showed their support and some offered their own colours at the Bremner statute, the media were also soon to pick up on the protest with local and national news teams reporting on the story.

The display was taken down by Elland Road officials around a week before the new season kicked off.

Hello Hell We Are Leeds
The defiant and comedic greeting the Leeds fans carried with them to the UEFA Cup Semi Final with Galatasary in Istanbul. The fans of Galatasary are known to greet the away fans with messages of 'Welcome To Hell' at the airport and in the ground, this was the Leeds United fans response. The game against Galatasary was played within 24 hours of the murders of two Leeds United fans. On the 5th April, 2000, Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight were murdered by cowardly Galatasary supporting scum. Stabbed to death, because allegedly they had made insults, towards sections of the Istanbul public. An allegation that didn't have one witness who could put Kevin or Chris at the scene of any incident. RIP Kevin and Chris.

Leeds United: Martyn; Kelly, Woodgate, Radebe, Harte; Bakke, Bowyer, Jones (Wilcox), McPhail; Bridges (Huckerby), Kewell. Unused Subs: Haaland, Smith, Mills, Duberry, Robinson.

South To East
Looking at the East Stand here at Elland Road during a break in play, with this one coming from the South Stand. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Brighton and Hove Albion at Elland Road on the 3rd August, 2013.

The South Stand at Elland Road was built in 1974 at a cost of 500,000. It replaced the old but popular barrel roofed Scratching Shed and came with state of the art facilities. The South Stand originally had a standing area at the front with a 4,000 capacity and a further 3,500 fans could be seated in the upper tier. The South Stand has 32 executive boxes and in 2006 underwent further developments which included a new facade which boxed in the existing columns and alcoves giving the stand a more modern exterior. Also an overhall of the kitchen concourse area, a new mezzanine level office area, a total modernisation of the corporate facilities above and the Billy's Bar And Brasserie, named after Billy Bremner.

The East Stand at Elland Road was built in 1993 at a cost of 5.5m. It replaced the old Lowfields Road stand which was demolished in 1992. The East Stand runs along the length of the pitch and is the latest stand in the Elland Road family. The stand has 25 executive boxes that are housed between the two tiers. The top tier of the East Stand holds 7,000 fans and the bottom tier has a capacity of 10,000 making the enormous East Stand's capacity 17,000. The East Stand's cantilever stand model is one of the largest cantilever stands in the world. Originally the bottom tier catered for the family stand members that were relocated from the South East corner after the stand was built in 1993. This has since been changed and now either side of the bottom tier is the area for Members Club members and season ticket holders with juveniles. A large concourse runs under the East Stand that contains shops for Leeds United merchandise, fast food, bookies and a restaurant. In March 2011 the first phase of a multi million five phase redevelopment of the stand took place.

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 1979-80 No.0129
The season of 1979-80 saw Leeds make the lowest finish to the season since they were promoted in 1963-1964. United finished the season in 11th spot winning only 13 games. They also had an embarrassing exit from the FL Cup losing 7-0 away to Arsenal after a 1-1 draw at Elland Road. The FA Cup and again not good for The Whites as the team were out at the first stage losing to Nottingham Forest 4-1 at Elland Road. Europe didn't prove any better for Leeds losing out to Universitatea Craiova by 4-0 on aggregate at the second round stage. The writing was on the wall for manager Armfield, he had won himself a reprieve from the board after he was given a two month ultimatum in November, an improvement in the performances at home allowed the team to avoid relegation but the fans were not so forgiving. The chants loud and clear at Elland Road were a resounding Adamson Out.

Back Row: Keith Parkinson, Paul Hart, John Lukic, Neil Firm, David Harvey, Ray Hankin, Byron Stevenson.
Middle Row: Kevin Hird, Alan Curtis, Gary Hamson, John Hawley, Eddie Gray.
Front Row: Brian Flynn, Paul Madeley, Peter Hampton, Trevor Cherry, Arthur Graham, Carl Harris, Gwyn Thomas.

One Side Of Vinnie Jones
Vinnie Jones here on his pre-match ritual of meeting the disabled supporters and members of LUDO at the North side of the West Stand Elland Road. Vinnie Jones would make a point of doing this before every home game. Notorious for being the bad boy of football this is the one side of Vinnie the football media always leave out. Wilkinson signed Vinne Jones in June 1989 from Wimbledon for 650,000 to bulk up his midfield for United's promo' bid. Jones made 43 apppearances in the league for the Whites in the promotion season of 1989-90 and he made a significant contribution to the push scoring 5 times in the league and never recieving a red card. After United won promotion Wilkinson felt Vinnie had done the job he was bought for and sold him to Sheffield United in September 1990 for 700,000.

Elland Road Snowed Under
A rare view here of the Elland Road pitch under snow. This shot taken from the Lowfields terracing is from 1978 when the Kop still had terracing. The Kop was the last stand at Elland Road to be housed with seating. All clubs in the top two divisions were required to become all-seater after recommendations in the Taylor Report were published in January 1990. The seats were put in the Kop in the close season of 1994.

The Cheese Wrapper
The exterior of South East corner caught in this one from the Elland Road point of view. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Barnsley at Elland road on the 6th October, 2012. The South East corner known around Elland Road as the Cheese Wedge because of the yellow seats was once the stand allocated to the visiting supporters. It was decided early in the season of 2011-12 to re-locate the away supporters who visited Elland Road to the south of the West Stand. The area has an allocation of around 3,000 for visitors leaving the entire South Stand and South East corner or the Cheese Wedge for the United supporters. The first game that saw this re-location was the match against Portsmouth on the 1st October, 2011. According to officials at the Club the move proved a success. A new compound for visiting coaches was also used for the first time situated on Fullerton Park adjacent to the new away turnstiles.

Leeds United: Kenny, Peltier, Pearce, Lees, White, Byram, Austin, Brown, Tonge, Diouf, Becchio.
Subs: Norris for Tonge, Gray for Becchio.

Leeds United 1944-45 No.0056
Football League was suspended with the outbreak of WWII during the 1939-40 season and it couldn't have come at a worse time for Billy Hampson and his young Leeds United side who were just beginning to gel. The Football Association did allow football to continue during the war on a non professional level but there was restrictions on the players wages and games could only go ahead with the permission of the local constabulary. Many clubs closed down for the war but United continued with the assistance of guest players. It was hard for any club who played through the war to rely on players because of conscription and players from other clubs often guested for teams when needed.
In the 1944-45 season United played in the Football League Northern Section and in the team pictured guest players from Barnsley, Chelsea, Sunderland and Celtic are featured. United finished in 32nd place out of a final table made up of 60 teams.

Back Row: Bob Roxburgh (Trainer), Frank Butterworth, Bob Shotton (Barnsley), Jim Twomey, Jack Milburn, Robson Campbell (Charlton Athletic), Sam Weaver (Chelsea).
Front Row: Eddie Burbanks (Sunderland), Cyril Coyne, Gerry Henry, Tom Hindle, John Paton(Celtic).

From The Cheese Wedge
A view here from the South East corner at Elland Road alternatively known as the Cheese Wedge. The Cheese Wedge is where the away supporters used to be situated at Elland Road but they were moved to the south of the West Stand in 2011.

It was decided early in the season of 2011-12 to re-locate the away supporters who visited Elland Road to the south of the West Stand.
