Armfield Stand

Description: A shot here of the Armfield Stand at Bloomfield Road. The stand named after the ex Blackpool player and Leeds United manager Jimmy Armfield. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on the 17th April, 2012.

For the 1974-75 season and after the sorry affair with Clough the Leeds board finally turned to Jimmy Armfield. Armfield took over at Leeds on the 4th October, 1974. Armfield had been a successful and loyal defender for Blackpool, winning 43 England caps. He was manager of Bolton when the Leeds officials offered him the job. Armfield took over a Leeds United that had made a bad start to the season and any hope of success in the league had gone. Armfields attentions were focused on the European Cup and he led the team to the final beating Barcelona the competition's favourites on the way. This was probably Armfields biggest achievement with Leeds and would have been his and the Clubs greatest achievement if it wasn't for some appalling refereeing. Leeds lost the final to Bayern Munich and Armfield was left with the task of dismantling the great Revie side and re-building Leeds United. The popular Armfield managed The Whites from 1974-1978.

Leeds United: Lonergan, Lees, O'Dea, Bromby, Robinson, Snodgrass, Clayton, Pugh, Webber, Paynter, McCormack.
Subs: Becchio for Paynter, Forssell for Webber, Connolly for Clayton.
