Leeds United 1980-81 No.0130

Submitted: 03/16/11
Description: To the surprise of many fans of the club Jimmy Adamson was still in charge of Leeds United for the start of the 1980-81 season. In an effort to bring creativity to a team that was sadly lacking Adamson brought in Argentine Alex Sabella from Sheffield United for 400,000 pounds. It wasn't to be for Adamson though, a bad start for United prompted the board to act. Adamson was out and into the role stepped Leeds' FA Cup Hero Allan Clarke. By the time Clarke took over Leeds were second from bottom and already out of the League Cup. After a shaky start and a third round exit from the FA Cup at the expense of Coventry City Clarke managed to somewhat turn it round. United won seven of their last 12 games including a famous win at Old Trafford where The Whites beat Manchester United with a solitary Brian Flynn goal. Leeds eventually finished the League in 9th place.
