Leeds United 1985-86 No.0142
Leeds United 1985-86 No.0142
To the dismay of the Leeds fans and indeed to players and certain members of the board at Elland Road Eddie Gray was sacked just three months into the season 1985-86. Leeds had had a poor start winning just once in their opening six games with a 6-2 defeat at the hands of Stoke City being one of the lowlights. Gray did manage to turn it round, the next eight games and United progressed with only one defeat, this run included a first stage win in the Football League Cup against Walsall where Leeds won 3-0, this win came in the second leg away at Walsall after a 0-0 draw at Elland Road. The Leeds board had lost faith though and despite the turnaround they sacked Eddie Gray and his assistant Jimmy Lumsden. Angry demonstrations by fans followed the dismissal of Eddie Gray. Certain board members didn't agree with it, one even resigned and some fans called for the head of Chairman Leslie Silver. Silver soon found the answer to pacify the fans and get them back on side, with the appointment of Billy Bremner as manager. The Leeds United hero was the third Revie old boy in succession to be appointed, he had been managing at Doncaster Rover's before the approach from Leeds. Bremner bought midfieder Ian Snodin that season, who he knew from Doncaster but significant departures included Sellars and Irwin. The promising side Gray had buit was being dismantled and sold for far less than it was worth. Bremner failed to turn the season round for The Whites, United went out at the 3rd round stage in the FA Cup 1-0 against Peterborough United, in the Football League Cup United were beaten by Aston Villa 3-0 at Elland Road and in the League with hit and miss patches of form Leeds finished a lowly 14th.

Back Row: Peter Swan, Ian Baird, Andy Linighan, Neil Aspin, Stephen O’Shaughnessy, Roger Eli, Andy Ritchie, Martin Dickinson.

Leeds finished in 14th position in the league and early exits again in the cup proved a bumpy arrival for Bremner.

Leeds United 1984-85 No.0140
A great start to the 1984-85 season for Eddie Gray's Leeds United gave some hope for the United faithful that this could be the season. Unfortunately though that was soon quashed as the team lost the following three and it was this kind of inconsistency that scuppered any hopes of promotion for Leeds. Again in the domestic Cups Leeds were knocked out at the early stages, losing 4-0 at Elland Road to Watford in the second stage of the Football League Cup and again at Elland Road United were beaten by Everton in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup by two goals to nil. The up and down season for United was highlighted by some exciting football from Eddie Grays young side. The 6-0 thrashing of Oldham Athletic and the 5-0 beating of Notts County at Elland Road were mirrored by the equally impressive 1-0 win over eventual Champions Oxford United and the 2-1 win at Maine Road over promoted Manchester City. Gray seemed to be getting it together as his United side finished the campaign in 7th place.

Back Row: Martin Dickinson, Neil Aspin, Andy Linighan, Tony Brown, George McCluskey, John Donnelly.

Leeds United 1983-84 No.0138
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.

Leeds United 1982-83 No.0136
For the season 1982-83 Leeds United found themselves back in the Second Division and it was another hero from the Revie era Eddie Gray that took up the reigns as player-manager of United after the dismissal of Allan Clarke. Gray had an unenviable task ahead, crowds were down at Elland Road to an all time low and the club reported a debt of 1.5M pounds. Gray's side just about held their own in the League without ever threatening while the side exited early in both domestic Cup competetion's. After a thrilling 4-2 win away against Newcastle United in the first stage of the League Cup, where Leeds came back from 0-2 down, United sadly lost the next round at home to Huddersfield Town 1-0. In the FA Cup and Leeds eventually lost a marathon 4th Round tie against Arsenal at Highbury after two replay's. United finished eighth in Division Two on 60 points.

Back Row Mark Gavin, Martin Dickinson, Neil Aspin, John Lukic, Paul Hart, David Harvey, Gary Hamson, John Donnelly, Kevin Hird.
Front Row Gwyn Thomas, Aidan Butterworth, John Sheridan, Andy Ritchie, Eddie Gray (Player-Manager), Tommy Wright, Arthur Graham, Frank Gray.
