Leeds United 1987-88 No.0147
High hopes for the season of 1987-88 for Leeds United after the achievements of Bremner's side the previous season which saw United reach the Semi Final of the FA Cup and the Play Off Final of the Second Division. The bookies had The Whites down as firm favourites for the title and confidence was high among the support. A bad start to the season which saw Leeds win only twice in their first nine games soon brought the camp at Elland Road back down to earth and by mid season after Leeds had only won six of the opening 20 League games everyone concerned was beginning to fear the worst. In the Domestic Cups and United failed to venture through the early stages. The Football League Cup saw Leeds reach the second stage only to be beaten by Oldham Athletic 4-2 in the replay at Boundary Park, the first game at Elland Road ended in a 2-2 draw. In the FA Cup and United failed to get past the 3rd Round after being beat 2-1 at Elland Road by Aston Villa and in the Simod Cup United lost out to Millwall at the Den 2-0. Following the Simod Cup loss Leeds put together a five match winning run in the League which brought the pre-season belief back to some but unfortunately it wasn't to be as up and down form plagued the rest of the season and any hope of that promotion had gone. United eventually finished the season in a disappointing 7th position, out of the automatic promotion position's and six points behind a Play Off position. One of the highlights of the season did see the emergence of the Leeds born youngster David Batty coming through the ranks, where he made seven League appearances for The Whites and scored a rare goal, a beauty too coming in a 2-1 win against Manchester City at Maine Road.

Gary McAllister and Eric Cantona shoulder to shoulder here after another United goal in the game against Chelsea that was played on April 11th, 1992 during the 1991-92 season. United won the game 3-0 with goals from Eric Cantona, Lee Chapman and Rod Wallace in front of 31,363 fans at Elland Road. Howard Wilkinson's men went on to win the Championship that year, only United's second season back in the top flight beating Manchester United into second place by a clear four points. This Championship is also significant because this was the last Championship before the Premier League took over. The Chelsea game came on the back of a three match run that only brought Leeds two points but with four games remaining United romped to the league drawing at Anfield and winning the last three against Coventry City, Sheffield United and Norwich City.

Eric Cantona here taking a breather during the Premier League match with Sheffield United that was played on October 17th, 1992 during the season of 1992-93. United won the game 3-1 with goals from Gary Speed, Chris Whyte and Lee Chapman in front of a 29,706 crowd. Cantona only made one more start in the league for the Whites after this game before he left for Manchester United. The Frenchman was signed by Howard Wilkinson during the Championship season of 1991-92 on February 4th, 1992 for 900,000, coming from the French side Nimes. Cantona fast become a favourite at Elland Road with his special goals and overhall contribution, also popping up at Wembley in the Charity Shield to score a hat-trick for the Whites in the 4-3 victory over Liverpool. A record was also cut when the United fans 'Ooh Ahh Cantona' chant was cut to vinyl with added lyrics. It all came as a shock when on the 12th November, 1992 Wilkinson decided to sell Cantona to arch rivals Manchester United for 1.2M. His form had obviously dropped and he soon found himself out of the starting eleven in 1992-93, it was a different Cantona the fans were seeing now compared to the Super Sub the crowd loved in the season before when United won the Championship. Despite his lack of form It was still hard for the fans to come to terms with Howard Wilkinson's decision of who to sell Cantona to. Cantona made 34 appearances for the Whites in all competitions, 10 of those coming on from the bench and he scored 11 goals.

Leeds United: Lukic, Newsome, Dorigo, Batty, Fairclough, Whyte, Strachan, Cantona, Chapman, McAllister, Speed.
Subs: Shutt for Cantona.

points, not the best form considering Leeds United were in a battle for the First Division title with Manchester United who at this stage in the race were ahead on points. After United were beaten 4-0 away against Manchester City the papers and pundits had already given City's neighbours the title. After a magnificent finish to the season though Howard Wilkinson's men won the league with four clear points. United won four of their last five games and drew the other 0-0 against Liverpool at Anfield. The last ever First Division title belonged to Howard Wilkinson and Leeds United.
