Description: 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.
