Leeds United 1983-84 No.0138

Submitted: 03/17/11 (Edited 03/17/11)
Description: A bad start for Eddie Gray's Leeds United for the season 1983-84 almost immediately ruled the team out for any sort of promotion push. United lost six of their opening nine games which included a humiliating 5-1 away defeat to Shrewsbury Town. In the Football League Cup and an even bigger embarrassment in the First Stage after Leeds lost to Chester City 1-0 at Elland Road. At the time Chester City were placed 92nd in the Football League which has 92 member club's. In the replay United made amends with a 4-1 win at Sealand Road but Leeds were dumped out by Oxford United in the following round after a replay by the same score. The FA Cup didn't fair much better for The Whites, United were knocked out by Allan Clarke's Scunthorpe United at the Third Round stage after two replay's. It was looking grim at Elland Road the crowds were down and there was no money in the kitty for Gray to add to his squad. Gray's young team eventually managed to turn it round somewhat in the second half of the season, at times showing promotion form. From the end of January through February Leeds won five on the trot. United eventually finished the season in 10th position.
