Ten days before the start of the season 2000-01 O'Leary's Leeds team played TSV 1860 Munich at Elland Road in the 1st Leg of the 3rd Qualifying Round of the Champion's League. United won the game 2-1 with goals from Ian Harte and Alan Smith. Two weeks later The Whites finished the job and qualified proper for the competition after Leeds won the away leg 1-0 with another goal from Alan Smith. Manager O'Leary spent big for the upcoming season bringing in Australian Mark Viduka from Celtic for 6M, French Midfielder Olivier Dacourt was signed from Lens for 7.2M breaking the transfer record at Elland Road and a month into the season O'Leary swooped for Dominic Matteo coming from Liverpool for 4.75M. In the Football League Cup and Leeds were knocked out at the first stage by Tranmere Rovers 3-2 after extra time at Prenton Park. Darren Huckerby netted both the goals for Leeds. In the FA Cup and Leeds didn't fair much better, after beating Barnsley at Elland Road in the 3rd Round 1-0 with a Mark Viduka goal they were knocked out at the 4th Round stage by Liverpool 2-0 again at Elland Road. A different story in the Champions League for The Whites saw O'Leary's unfancied side reach the Semi Final stage with some memorable performances in Europe. United eventually met Spanish side Valencia in the Semi Final where their European adventure ended. After a 0-0 draw at Elland Road The Whites lost the away leg 3-0. In the League and O'Leary's young side finished 4th in the Premiership. A decent finish for United but 4th position meant no Champions League for the following season. This was significantly a crucial loss of revenue for a Leeds team that had spent big. They did however qualify for the UEFA Cup, topping off one of the most exciting seasons since the 1992 Championship win. United won 20 games, scored 64 goals and finished on 68 points.

The season 1999-00 was the first full season in charge for manager David O'Leary and for the new campaign the Irishman made numerous signings. Danny Mills came from Charlton for 4.37M million, Eirik Bakke penned for 1M coming from Norwegian outfit Sogndal and Michael Bridges came from Sunderland for 4.5M which underlined the talent O'Leary was bringing to the club. Not much progress in the Football League Cup saw United knocked out in the 4th Round by Leicester City at Filbert Street after a penalty shoot out. Leeds went a round further in the FA Cup making the 5th Round only to be knocked out by Aston Villa 3-2 at Villa Park with Ian Harte and Eirik Bakke netting for Leeds. In the UEFA Cup and Leeds United made it all the way to the Semi Final where they met Turkish side Galatasary, Leeds lost the game over two legs, The Whites went down 2-0 in Istanbul and drew the game at Elland Road 2-2 with both the Leeds goals coming from Eirik Bakke. In the League and Leeds finished in their highest spot since they won the League in 1991-92 under Howard Wilkinson. O'Leary's young team finished in third spot and with it a place in the Champion's League. United won 28 games and scored 58 goals in the process.

This season however will always be remembered for the wrong reasons. O'Leary's achievements with his young side will always be in the shadow of two incidents that are now unfortunately cemented in the history of Leeds United. The first involved the two United players Lee Bowyer and Jonathan Woodgate. While out drinking at the Majestyk night club in Leeds January, 2000 they got themselves involved in an incident which saw a man suffer injuries that resulted in an eight day stay in hospital. What made this matter worse and prompted the papers to have a field day was the man receiving the treatment was Asian. Bowyer and Woodgate were charged with causing grievous bodily harm in an allegedly racially motivated attack. The case lasted for nearly two years and from the outset the judge made it very clear that the incident was not racially motivated. This did not stop the newspapers at large heaving an all out assault on Leeds United and it didn't stop opposing fans from chanting obscene, expletives at every following game without any recourse from the authorities. It could however have stopped Leeds United from having an even more memorable time in the League. Playing under such appalling and ludicrous conditions, a result of the national newspapers assaults, must have had a significant affect on the team.

The other regrettable and devastating incident involved two Leeds United supporters. Leeds United faced the Turkish side Galatasary in the Semi Final of the UEFA Cup. The night before the game on the 5th April, 2000 two Leeds United fans Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight were murdered by a group of Galatasary supporters. Stabbed to death because allegedly they had made insults towards sections of the Istanbul public. This allegation didn't have one witness who could put Kevin or Chris at the scene of any incident. It goes without saying that if the absurd and incompetent officials within UEFA had have cancelled the following days game Leeds might have done better on the park. The game went ahead in an extremely hostile environment with little care from the Turkish police. Hateful chanting went on over the Leeds team who lost the game 2-0. As if that wasn't enough the referee was distinctly biased in the Turkish sides favour. We'll never know how badly this affected Leeds United, it was heartbreaking for everybody involved with the club. Peter Ridsdale the Leeds chairman throughout the duration of this hard time was amazing, bringing many favourable and respectful comments from people outside of the club. The baleful deeds of the Galatasary supporting scum that night will never be absolved by Leeds fans and the memory of Chris and Kevin will always be in our hearts.

Early exits again for Wilkinson's Leeds United in the season of 1993-94. In the Football League Cup and United were knocked out at the Second Round stage by Sunderland over two legs. United went down 2-1 in both legs, in the first leg at Roker Park Gary Speed netted the Leeds goal and for the second leg at Elland Road it was Noel Whelan that delivered the single goal for The Whites. In the 3rd Round of the FA Cup United beat Crewe Alexandra 3-1 at Elland Road, a goal from Brian Deane and two from Jamie Forrester gave United a fourth Round ticket but progression was soon halted, Leeds lost the next tie after a replay against Oxford United. Leeds drew the game at the Manor Ground 2-2, a goal each from David Wetherall and Gary Speed secured the replay only for United to lose 3-2 at Elland Road, David White and Gordon Strachan bagging the goals for Leeds. In the League though it was a vast 5th place improvement for United with The Whites scoring four or more in a game no less than four times, including a last match 5.0 thrashing away at Swindon, with goals from David White, Chris Fairclough, Rod Wallace and Brian Deane scoring two, this rounded up a reasonable effort in the League. Wilkinson's men finished the campaign on 70 points, winning 18 and scoring 65 goals.

Before the start of the 1992-93 campaign Leeds took on Liverpool in the Charity Shield for the second time in their history. This time round it would be victory for the men in white, as United won the shield 4-3, with Eric Cantona bagging a hat trick for Leeds and Tony Dorigo scoring the other. Leeds had an early exit in the FA Cup with Arsenal winning a replay in the 4th Round at Elland Road after extra time and Leeds also went out early in the Football League Cup after they lost 2-1 away at Watford in the 3rd Round. In the League and Leeds just couldn't find their feet. With somewhat Jekyll and Hyde like performances, losing 4-1 away to Middlesborough in late August followed three days later with a 5-0 win at home against Tottenham Hotspur, saw them finish in a lowly 17th spot. Starting games as champions rather than underdogs didn't suit the United attitude and with the rest of the Division having a point to prove Leeds didn't have the answer. Leeds amazingly went all season without an away win. In the European Cup and Leeds disappointingly exited early in a two legged affair against Scottish Champions Rangers in Round 2. The previous round however saw one of the most memorable games ever at Elland Road. The German Champions Stuttgart brought a 3-0 advantage to Elland Road in the First Round, nobody gave Leeds a hope and they were underdogs once again. In the game at Elland Road and Leeds were unstoppable with a single-minded game plan of attack winning the game 4-1. With goals from Speed, Cantona, Chapman and Gary McAllister netting from the penalty spot. Stuttgart should have gone through on the away goal rule but amazingly UEFA ordered the game to be replayed because Stuttgart had fielded too many foreign players. At the neutral Nou Camp and Leeds won the replay 2-1 with goals from Strachan and Shutt.

The start of the 1991-92 season saw manager Wilkinson make more invaluable purchases to add to his squad. Tony Dorigo joined from Chelsea for 1.3M, Rod Wallace came from Southampton for 1.6M and David Wetherall from Sheffield Wednesday came for another bargain at 125,000. Irishman Gary Kelly also made his debut that term. United made the 5th round of the Football League Cup beating Everton at Goodison Park on the way by 4-1, with goals from Gary Speed, Lee Chapman, and Rod Wallace getting two. Eventually Leeds were beaten by Manchester United 3-1. It was Manchester United who also put Leeds out of the FA Cup at the first stage by a single goal at Elland Road. In the League and Leeds United went the first ten games without a loss. Losing their eleventh game by a single goal away to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. That was one of only four losses all season for Leeds United as Wilkinson's men went on to take the Championship in only their second season back up. Arguing for most of the season in a two horse race with Manchester United for the top domestic prize it would be Leeds United who would avenge their cup exits and take the First Division Championship back to Elland Road. A magnificent season for Leeds winning the third Top Tier Championship in their history. In only his third full season in charge at Elland Road Wilkinson had achieved a minor miracle. United won 22 games, scored 74 goals and only lost four all season. Champions.

What a comeback, the first season back in the top flight for Howard Wilkinson's men was more than the most optimistic Leeds fan could have hoped for. The season 1990-91 saw Leeds United reach the Zenith Data Systems Northern Final, losing in a two legged game against Everton. Drawing the first leg at Elland Road 3-3 where Lee Chapman netted twice and Mel Sterland bagged the other. In the away leg though Leeds lost the game 3-1 with Sterland scoring again. In the Football League Cup and Leeds battled all the way to the Semi Final. United beat Aston Villa on the way 4-1 at Elland Road in the 5th Round with goals from Welshman Gary Speed, Lee Chapman scoring twice and Gary McAllister who had signed from Leicester for 1M. Goalkeeper John Lukic made a return that season also for the same price tag. Unfortunately Leeds lost the Semi against Manchester United in another close fought two legged affair. Leeds went out at the first stage to Arsenal in the FA Cup after three replays. In the League and Leeds finished a lofty fourth position, winning 19 games and scoring 65 goals. In their first season back Leeds made the fourth placed spot in January and stayed in that position all season. A very worthy return for Leeds United back in the Top Flight, Wilko had worked his magic and United fans were looking forward.

Howard Wilkinson's first full season in charge of The Whites for the season 1989-90 and the manager added to the previous season signing's of Gorgon Strachan and Chris Fairclough with players like Mel Sterland, Vinnie Jones, Chris Kamara and Lee Chapman. Leeds fans were quick to take note and believed that Wikinson meant business. Leeds finished their Domestic Cup campaigns again at the early stages. In the Football League Cup and Leeds were knocked at the first stage by Oldham Athletic over two legs. In the FA Cup and United didn't fair any better as Ipswich Town beat Leeds in the 3rd Round at Elland Road 1-0 and in the Zenith Data System Cup Wilkinson's side made the 4th Round only to be beaten by Aston Villa at Villa Park 1-0. It was in the League though where Leeds showed their force. In December 1989 Leeds went to the top of the table after a 2-0 win at Middlesborough, with goals from Shutt and Fairclough and that's where Leeds stayed for the rest of the season. 12 players made their debut in that season, which notes the often overlooked genius of Wilkinson. In his first full season, after Leeds had spent the seven previous seasons in the Second Division, he did the deed. Leeds United were promoted as Second Division Champions.

A bad start to the season of 1988-89 saw the end of Billy Bremner as manager of Leeds United. After six League games with only one win United's Chairman Leslie Silver decided to call it a day on the Leeds legend and looked to the First Division for his replacement. Howard Wilkinson who at the time was having a successful go at it with Sheffield Wednesday caught Silver's attentions and he persuaded the manager to join Leeds. This probably proved one of two things, either Silver had the gift of the gab or Leeds United were still a very big pull. Wilkinson went down a Division to manage The Whites and started about the business of getting Leeds back to where they belonged. Into the season and Wilkinson didn't start any fires at Elland Road an exit in the Football League Cup at the hands of Luton Town at the 3rd Round stage, losing 2-0 at Elland Road was followed by an exit from the FA Cup at the 4th Round stage when United lost 2-0 at the City ground to Nottingham Forest. Leeds also lost again to Millwall in the Simod Cup 2-0 at the Den. In the League and steady form delivered a 10th position to the side.
