A Leeds United Party
Bradley Johnson the United midfielder here caught on film with an extra from the party Leeds United were having in the First Division game against Gillingham at Elland Road on the 19th September, 2009.

Dennis Wise signed Bradley Johnson from Northampton Town on the 8th January, 2008 in a three year deal for a fee of 250,000 pounds. Johnson found it hard to find his place under new manager Gary McAllister and had a two month loan spell with Brighton and Hove Albion during the 2008-09 season which ended on 3rd January, 2009 Johnson scored 4 goals in 10 games for Brighton. Johnson returned to Leeds and has since established himself as one of Grayson's first choices for one of United's midfield spots.

United were looking to make it 15 league wins on the bounce at Elland Road in the game against Gillingham. Grayson kept the same team that drew away at Southend United in the previous game. Gillingham started the game brightly and it was the visitors who had the first chance on goal but the shot was fired wide, United responded straight away with a Luciano Becchio effort that was poked out by a Gills defender for a corner. Robert Snodgrass whipped in the corner for the Whites and it was Bradley Johnson who found the net with a strong header giving United the lead. Just 10 minutes later on 28 minutes it was Bradley Johnson again who found the net for Leeds firing home a low effort after a delightful ball by Jermaine Beckford that the Gillingham keeper was unable to handle. United now with a two goal advantage cruised to the half time whistle, and with just thirty seconds into the second half gone United made it three. A Robert Snodgrass ball into the box was glanced on by the head of Jermaine Beckford and Johnny Howson blasted home his first goal of the season for the Whites. On fifty minutes the visitors managed to get one back which in turn instilled a new spirit into the Gills who hadn't given up the game but that mattered little and the points were as good as rewarded on 80 minutes when Jermaine Beckford headed home his sixth goal of the season after the ball came off the cross bar from a Michael Doyle effort from outside the box. 21,026 fans turned up for the game at Elland Road and watched Grayson's men win their 15th consecutive league win on home soil.

Leeds United: Higgs, Crowe, Kisnorbo, Bromby, Doyle, Howson, Johnson, Hughes, Beckford, Becchio, Snodgrass.
Subs: Kilkenny for Crowe, Michalik for Snodgrass, Grella for Becchio.

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.

Speedo's Name Sang
The Don Revie Stand here at Elland Road in full voice singing the name of United's former Midfield Great Gary Speed. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Millwall at Elland Road on the 3rd December, 2011.

On the 27th November, 2011 it was reported that Gary Speed the Welsh International and Leeds United legend had died. Found by his wife Louise at 7.00am the same morning. She telephoned the police and ambulance service who confirmed him as being dead. His death was announced to the Football Association of Wales a few hours later.
Initial reporting of the tragedy said that Gary Speed had hanged himself. The official inquest that was taken in late January recorded a narrative verdict giving the cause of death as hanging but that: "the evidence does not sufficiently determine whether this was intentional or accidental".

The tragic news soon spread to the thousands of Leeds United fans throughout the world who immediately took to the message boards and social network sites. It was decided amongst the supporters that a tribute to the United legend should be made at the following game away at Nottingham Forest. Gary Speed wore the Number Eleven shirt for Leeds. It was arranged by the fans that on the eleventh minute of the game the United fans would sing his name for eleven minutes.
A further tribute for Gary Speed was also arranged for the next home game against Millwall. Members of the Leeds Utd Forum WACCOE got together and arranged for a banner to be made. The banner 30ft x 8ft would show the Leeds United badge that was used during Speeds era and also Speeds face with the words "GO ON GARY SPEED GET ONE YOURSELF SON". The words a reference to the television commentary that came just before his goal in a 4-0 win over Sheffield United. A win that helped Leeds win the League and gain promotion in 1989-90.

Gary Speed started his time with Leeds United at an early age in 1987, joining The Whites straight from school. It was manager Howard Wilkinson who first noticed his abilities, at the time Speed was playing in the Left Back position. It was under Wilkinson's managership where Speed made his First Team debut at the age of 19. A versatile player Speed played in nine out of the ten outfield positions but it was always on the left where Speed would shine. Gary Speed soon became a regular in Wilkinson's first eleven making 12 appearances and scoring 3 goals in United's push for promotion in 1989-90. The player went on and played an instrumental role in United's Championship win of 1991-92. Notably Speed was part of that famous United Midfield that also included Gordon Strachan, Gary McAllister and David Batty a midfield that Leeds legend Eddie Gray called the greatest Midfield lineup of the modern era. Gary Speed stayed with Leeds up until 1996 before he moved to Everton the club he supported as a boy. He made 312 appearances for Leeds and scored 57 goals.

Leeds United: McCarthy, Connolly, Kisnorbo, Lees, Pugh, Brown, Snodgrass, Howson, Clayton, White, Becchio.
Subs: Sam for Howson.

Old Peacock
The Old Peacock Pub in this shot situated on Elland Road opposite the South Stand. Elland Road was originally named after this pub because it faced the land on where the ground is built. Rugby was the dominant sport in Leeds at the time and Holbeck Rugby Club used to play at the ground. The 'Old Peacock' ground changed its name to Elland Road shortly after Association Football arrived in the shape of Leeds Woodville who shared the ground with Holbeck.

Currently the Leeds United Supporters Club run the Old Peacock.

Lowfields Snow
A snow covered Lowfields here giving the old stand a quaint Christmas Card affect. This shot taken from the East of the stadium in 1978.

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.

Jimmy Armfield Shows His Medal
Jimmy Armfield and his wife Ann on the England Team Bus leaving 10 Downing Street for Wembley on June 10th.

Before 1974 only the eleven players who played in a World Cup Final recieved a medal. It was in November 2007 that Sepp Blatter announced that all the squad players between 1930 and 1974 that were part of a World Cup winning side should be given the medals that they should by rights have recieved originally. This was a grand gesture that was well recieved and meant that Norman Hunter the Leeds United centre back of Revie's Golden era and also Jimmy Armfield the Leeds United manager from 1974 to 1978 would finally recieve their World Cup medals. This was a justice served for the playing staff but it still overlooked the people who's contributions off the field were essential to any teams success and in England's case it was Sir Alf Ramsey the manager, United's own Les Cocker the team physio and Harold Shepherdson the team trainer. In May, 2009 however the non playing staff also looked set to recieve their medals after it was made known that 14 medals were being minted for each World Cup winning Squad, 11 for playing staff and a further 3 for coaching staff with the final decision on the recipients going to the countries regulating bodies. This meant that almost certainly Les Cocker Leeds United's backroom stalwart of the sixties and seventies would finally recieve his acknowledgement for the vital contributions he made towards England's achievement in 1966.
Les Cocker who died in 1979 did recieve his medal, his son David Cocker accepted the award on his behalf, along with Norman Hunter and Jimmy Armfield. The awards were handed out by Prime Minister Gordon Brown in a ceremony at 10 Downing Street on June 30th, 2009.

Outside ER - North East Corner
This shot of the North East Corner was taken from the north east of the stadium footprint just inside the Gelderd End entrance gates.

The North East Corner at Elland Road was built in 1970 at a cost of 200,000. This corner stand would eventually join the East Stand which was built in 1993 helping further streamline Elland Road, although before the East Stand there was a gap between the North East Stand and the Lowfields upper tier. The lower tier of the North East originally had terracing and was used to house the junior supporters at Elland Road, the stand was known as the Boys Pen. After the recommendations in the Taylor Report that was published in January 1990 the lower tier of the North East stand was made all seater.

From Kevin
A plaque here for Kevin Phillips that will be situated on the plinth of the Don Revie statue. Kevin Phillips was one of the major donators to the Don Revie Tribute Fund, his name and tribute 'There's Only One Don Welcome Home' can be seen on the plaque. Created by Barnsley born sculptor Graham Ibbeson the statue is a result of the Don Revie Tribute and is situated opposite the new development at the East Stand side of the Elland Road Stadium.

The Don Revie Tribute was set up by Birmingham City fan Jim Cadman. Jim Cadman is passionate about the game of football and has experience in setting up Tributes for past Legends of the game including Tom Finney the Preston North End Forward. It was the eventual sculptor of the Don Revie statue Graham Ibbeson who originally contacted Jim looking for help with the funding of the statue after the sculptor had been approached. The statue would cost around 90k. Jim decided the best way to get the funds and the best way to honour Don would be to set up a Tribute Fund and ask the supporters of Leeds United to contribute. A number of functions, dinners and auctions including a theatrical tribute and magazine were set up by Jim Cadman which were focused around the players from the Don Revie era who gladly gave up their time to help the cause. It was called the Don Revie Tribute and the supporters of Leeds United raised the cash. The Don Revie Statue was unveiled on the 5th May, 2012.

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.

Robert Getting Some Love
Robert Snodgrass United's Scottish International Forward gets the plaudits from his teammates here after he scores his second for Leeds. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Burnley at Turf Moor on the 19th November, 2011. Snodgrass played the full match for Leeds and scored two goals in the game against the Lancashire outfit.

Gary McAllister beat a host of other clubs when he signed the highly rated Robert Snodgrass in late July, 2008 from Scottish outfit Livingston on a three year contract. After some excellent match winning performances 'Snoddy' soon established himself as one of Grayson's automatic choices for his first eleven and with two years left on his current contract he was offered a new four year deal with United at the beginning of the 2009-10 season. The Members Club Player of the Year for 2008-09 was delighted with the offer. "It`s been great since I came down here last summer and I really love the club. From the fans to the back-room staff and the other players..."

Leeds United: McCarthy, Connolly, Kisnorbo, O'Dea, White, Snodgrass, Howson, Clayton, Sam, McCormack, Keogh.
Subs: Nunez for McCormack, Becchio for Keogh, Lees for O'Dea.

From The Kop
A great shot here from the Kop at Elland Road taken during a break in play. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Watford at Elland Road on the 10th November, 2012.

The Spion Kop at Elland Road was built in the 1920's and attained its name from a hill in South Africa. During the Boer War 322 British soldiers lost their lives on the hill and many football teams named their stands after Spion Kop hill in tribute to the fallen men. The original Kop was all terracing and built on an embankment, at this time the Kop had no roof. In April 1968 the old Spion Kop terracing was stripped away in no less than six weeks and in its place the new Kop was built complete with a roof and new name. The Elland Road Kop was now known as the Gelderd End. The new stand cost 250,000 to build. In 1994 as a result of the recommendations in the Taylor Report which was published in 1990 the Gelderd End became all seater. 7,000 seats were added to the terrace reducing the stands capacity by just under 3,000. The Gelderd End was the final stand at the Elland Road stadium to acquire seats. The new look Kop was officially opened in October by the President of the club, Lord Harewood and Mrs E Revie the late Don Revie's widow. The Gelderd End was renamed after the great manager himself and the stand is now officially known as the Revie Stand.
