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.

Odour There, Odour There
The United fans pack their end at this pre-season friendly with Burnley at Turf Moor here before the 2007-08 kicked off for real. United lost the game 2-0 in front of 5,290 supporters with a massive showing of support for the Whites. The panicked Burnley officials at one point ran out of tickets, according to them they said they wasn't expecting that many Leeds fans to turn up. Just under 2,000 United fans made the trip many of them from the wrong side of the Pennines. During the game the Leeds fans held a protest against Chairman Ken Bates chanting 'Get the Chelsea out of Leeds' in reference to the links that Bates and manager Wise have had with the side in the past. Then later the United fans took a comedic approach with 'Shoes off if you hate Ken Bates' which prompted many fans to remove their shoes and wave them in the air. The protests followed the release of fresh details regarding Bates' shady purchase of Leeds United.

The Highs At Highbury
The United following at Highbury here in raptures after Leeds pull off a relegation saving win. Season 2002-03 and Leeds found themselves languishing near the bottom of the Premiership after a disastrous 8 month spell by manager Terry Venables. Venables resigned after 8 months losing 16 of the 30 games he was in charge for. Peter Reid was brought in on a temporary basis and given the brief to keep Leeds in the Premiership. Reid was left with everything to do. It started off bad for Reid losing 3-1 away to Liverpool and by the time the Arsenal fixture came up it was a win or bust situation for United. Reid's United pulled it off in an amazing game which the Whites won 3-2. United took the lead twice with goals from Harry Kewell and Ian Harte only for Arsenal to equalise both goals respectively, then late in the game up popped Mark Viduka to score a rocket of a goal which secured the points for United in front of a 38,127 crowd and secured the club from relegation.

Leeds United: Robinson; Mills, Radebe, Duberry, Harte; Kelly, Matteo, Bakke, Wilcox; Kewell (Johnson), Viduka.
Unused Subs: Bravo, Barmby, Milner, Martyn.

Outside ER - South West Corner
Here a great view from the rear of the South West Corner situated on Elland Road. On the red wall (bottom middle) you can just see the plaque that was placed there in honour of Don Revie and Billy Bremner.

The South West Corner is the only stand in Elland Road missing an upper tier. The bottom tier originally terracing was fitted out with seats when the South Stand underwent a similiar transformation. The bottom tier links the South Stand and West Stand together making for a streamlined corner albeit only on the bottom tier. The upper tier gap between the South Stand and West Stand is where the electronic scoreboard is situated.

Thanks to Tapani Olkku for this great pic.
Paul The famous picture here that the plaque on the wall above is based on.

Inside ER - The Kop
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.
