Legends Sign For The Faithful
Legends Sign For The Faithful
Leeds United legends of the Don Revie era here sit around the table to sign pictures and memorabilia for the United faithful. Pictured from left to right are: Norman Hunter (Defender 1962-1976), Paul Reaney (Right Back 1962-1978) and Mick Jones Forward (1967-1975). Created by Barnsley born sculptor Graham Ibbeson the statue is a result of the Don Revie Tribute and is situated opposite the new development at the East Stand side of the Elland Road Stadium.

The Don Revie Tribute was set up by Birmingham City fan Jim Cadman. Jim Cadman is passionate about the game of football and has experience in setting up Tributes for past Legends of the game including Tom Finney the Preston North End Forward. It was the eventual sculptor of the Don Revie statue Graham Ibbeson who originally contacted Jim looking for help with the funding of the statue after the sculptor had been approached. The statue would cost around 90k. Jim decided the best way to get the funds and the best way to honour Don would be to set up a Tribute Fund and ask the supporters of Leeds United to contribute. A number of functions, dinners and auctions including a theatrical tribute and magazine were set up by Jim Cadman which were focused around the players from the Don Revie era who gladly gave up their time to help the cause. It was called the Don Revie Tribute and the supporters of Leeds United raised the cash. The Don Revie Statue was unveiled on the 5th May, 2012.

Sniffer & Speedy
Sniffer & Speedy
Leeds United legends Allan Clarke and Paul Reaney caught here in the East Stand at Elland Road before kick off. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Middlesbrough at Elland Road on the 13th August, 2011.

Manager Don Revie signed Forward Allan Clarke on the 24th June, 1969 from Leicester City for 165,000 and broke the Leeds United and British transfer record in the bargain. Clarke made his debut for The Whites in a Charity Shield match against Manchester City at Elland Road on the 2nd August, 1969 which United won 2-1 in front of 39,835 fans. In his first season for Leeds Clarke scored an amazing 26 goals which earned him the nickname "Sniffer", he went on to be United's leading goalscorer in four of the seasons that he was with the club. Clarke will always be remembered by Leeds fans for one special goal that came in the Centenary FA Cup Final against Arsenal in 1972. It was Sniffer that scored the only goal of the game with a diving header handing Leeds United their first FA Cup Final success. While at Leeds Clarke scored 151 goals in all competitions and started 359 times for the men in White. While at the club Clarke also won 19 caps for England scoring 10 goals. In June 1978 Clarke was sold to Barnsley for 45,000 where he became the player manager and won promotion for the club in 1979 to the Third Division scoring 12 goals himself. Sniffer made a return to Leeds in 1980 as the manager taking over from Jimmy Adamson who resigned. Clarke spent two season's in charge at Elland Road, in his first season Clarke's United finished 9th but the following season United were relegated and Clarke was sacked.

Paul Reaney started with Leeds United as a member of the groundstaff team in October 1961. Paul was born in Fulham but moved to Leeds when he was a baby and attended Cross Green High School in Inner City, Leeds 9. His debut for Leeds came less than a year later after he joined in the away game at Swansea on the 8th September, 1962 which United won 2-0. Reaney as a Right Back went on to make 39 appearances for Leeds in all competitions in that first season. He soon established himself at Elland Road and was part of the team that won promotion under Don Revie in 1964. Reaney soon settled in to Top Flight football missing just a handful of games in the first four seasons as United battled it out for honours at the top of the pack. He also acquired a new nickname "Speedy" on account of his ability to quickly run into attack and knock tantalising crosses in for the Forwards. An ever present in Don Revie's famous Leeds United side Reaney made 745 appearances for The Whites in all competitions giving him third place in United's all time appearance list behind Jack Charlton and Billy Bremner, he also scored nine goals. While at Leeds the player made three appearances for England and received many admiring accolades from the greats of the time including Northern Ireland International George Best who said of Paul that he was one of the best players he had ever played against. In 1978 Reaney joined neighbours Bradford City on a free transfer and completed his playing career in Australia with Newcastle KB United.

Leeds United 1977-78 No.0123
The season of 1977-78 saw Leeds Utd better their previous season in the league by one place finishing in 9th position. Armfield again dipped into the transfer market that season bringing in Arthur Graham, Brian Flynn and Paul Hart. In the FA Cup and Leeds went out at the first stage to Manchester City but in the Football League Cup United went all the way to the Semi Final only to be beaten in a two legged affair by eventual League Champions Nottingham Forest. It seemed with the success of the Revie side still entrenched in the board at Elland Road and the minds of the United public that it would seem nothing short of a miracle for Armfield to impress. Jimmy Armfield did steady the ship at Elland Road and produce a little success but with expectations still high, the board decided to end his time at Elland Road.

The wholesale dismantling of the Leeds United side continued for the season of 1976-77. Manager Armfield did invest in new playing staff bringing in the talented Midfielder Tony Currie from Sheffield United and Ray Hankin a powerful, burly Center Forward from Burnley. The season wasn't a good one on any front for Leeds, United finished 10th in the First Division and went out of Football League Cup at the second Round stage losing to Stoke City 2-1 at the Victoria Ground. A little better showing in the FA Cup saw Leeds reach the Semi Final only to be beaten in a close game 2-1 by Manchester United at neutral venue Hillsborough.

The season 1975-76 was a transition period for Leeds united and Jimmy Armfield, post Paris and Armfield was faced with the job of dismantling and rebuilding the Leeds outfit after the unavoidable break up of the great Don Revie side. Despite the wholesale changes in the playing staff at Elland Road United still made a good showing in the League finishing a solid 5th. In the Cup it was a different story with Leeds going at at the 3rd Round stage in the Football League Cup at the expense of Notts County and in the FA Cup United didn't fair much better after they were beaten in the 4th Round by Crystal Palace.

Brian Clough took over as manager of Leeds for the 1974-75 campaign. The same man who had previously called the team cheats. He tried to put his mark on the club, drafting in John O'Hare and John McGovern. One league win in seven, plus the discontent of the Leeds team and crowd, forced the board to get rid. He left after only 44 days with a more than generous payoff. Jimmy Armfield replaced Clough as manager and brought about some cohesion to the club. Leeds under Clough had had a bad start to the season and Armfield never managed to turn that round finishing 9th in the league. A little success in the FA Cup reaching the quarter final stage but eventually lost out to Ipswich after three replays. It was in the European Cup though where Leeds would shine. Reaching the final of the cup beating Barcelona on the way. 50,393 fans at Elland Road watched Clarke and Bremner score in the first leg of the semi final, making the tie 2-1 to Leeds. 110,000 saw a Peter Lorimer goal at the Nou Camp deliver a European Cup final ticket to Leeds United after drawing the away leg 1-1. Yet again, in the final against Bayern Munich at Le Parc De Princess in Paris, the Leeds fans witnessed the most appalling and ludicrous refereeing by the Frenchman Michel Kitabdjian. Leeds scored a perfectly good opening goal, a trademark thunderbolt from Peter Lorimer ruled out because it was seen that Billy Bremner was interfering with play. The linesman was already running back to the halfway line thinking he had seen a perfectly good goal but Kitabdjian ruled it out with the bizarre reasoning that Bremner had interfered with a ball travelling at 70mph. The outcome of the game seemed inevitable, especially after the two clear penalty claims were dismissed. Leeds who were by far the better team, finally succumbed to the bent referee and two Bayern Munich goals.

1973-74 and Leeds had an early exit from Europe, going out to Portugese outfit Vitoria Setubal. Losing 4-2 on aggregate in the UEFA cup. 47,128 fans at Elland Road unfortunately saw Leeds go out of the 5th round of the FA Cup to Bristol City, in a replay. It was in the First Division where Leeds shined that year. Losing only four games all season in the League saw Leeds lift the Championship for the second time. Leeds were unstoppable winning the first seven games on the bounce. In fact it wasn't until February that Leeds lost. Despite goals from Clarke and Bremner Leeds lost their first game of the season away at Stoke 3-2. March proved a tricky month with Leeds losing three times to Liverpool, Burnley and West Ham but this just proved to be a blip as Leeds went on to lift the coveted trophy with 62 points.

The league campaign for 1972-73 saw Leeds finish in a worthy third spot on 53 points. Leeds United showed their strength more in the cup competitions. Again though it was bad luck and bad refereeing decisions that cost Leeds what would have been another memorable season. In the European Cup Winners Cup Final several unbelievable decisions cost Leeds United dearly. The ref' awarded the Leeds opponents AC Milan a doubtful free kick in the first five minutes from which they scored, this goal proving to be the decisive goal. Leeds were denied two definite penalty claims by the Greek referee Christos Michas. Machos was suspended by UEFA directly after the game for his appalling performance. Anyone watching the game including the Greek crowd had Leeds United down as the real winners. Despite the suspension of Michas Leeds were never allowed to replay this game, or justifiably play for the cup under the control of a honest referee. In the FA Cup and Leeds reached their fourth final in less than ten years, playing second division Sunderland. No one realistically gave Sunderland a chance but an incredible goalkeeping display from Sunderland keeper Jim Montgomery and an Ian Porterfield goal saw the cup go North East.

Due to crowd trouble, following the WBA farce of the previous season, Leeds were forced to play the opening four games of the 1971-72 campaign on neutral grounds. This didn't affect the Leeds campaign who yet again put in a solid season finishing in second place. It could have been a different story if the FA hadn't been so uncompromising. Leeds had to play Wolves just two days after thier FA Cup final appearance against Arsenal. It was Leeds United's third appearance in the FA Cup final that would at last produce the cup. Allan Clarke headed home from a Mick Jones cross to score, giving Leeds a 1-0 win over Arsenal. With an early departure from Europe and the League Cup it was the centenary FA Cup final that gave Leeds fans cause to celebrate that season. Not to mention one bit of televison history. Barry Davies who on Match Of The Day commentated, on one of the most repeated open play sequences ever seen on the programme. "To say that Leeds are playing with Southampton is the understatement of the season, poor old Southampton just don't know what day it is. Every man jack of this Leeds side is now turning it on, it's almost cruel". On the 4th of March 1972 Leeds beat Sothampton 7-0 at Elland Road. It wasn't just the score, but the way Leeds achieved this win, that makes it so memorable.

Leeds United 1970-71 No.0104
Leeds United had gone from relative nobodies to one of the countries finest, most respected sides... On April 17th 1971 Don Revie after the league game with West Bromwich Albion said "Tinkler ruined nine months of work". A home win was essential to Leeds United's title hopes, but down to one of the most memorably bad refereeing decisions ever televised, Leeds lost their home game against WBA. It was Jeff Astle who scored the infamous goal, that was so obviously offside, to the thousands that saw it in the ground and the millions who later that evening saw it on the telly. It was referee Ray Tinkler that awarded it. That goal in all probability lost the 1970-71 championship to Arsenal who won it by one point. Leeds had had a solid season, ending the term with 64 points, the highest tally ever for a second place side. It was feet back on the ground for Leeds in the FA Cup as well, when top of the table Leeds went out to fourth division Colchester 3-2 in the 5th round. Goals from Giles and Hunter were not enough for Leeds as the underdogs scored three in front of their home crowd. An early exit in the League Cup 2nd round at the hands of Sheffield United sums up a soul destroying domestic season for Leeds. In Europe however it was more silverware for Leeds. Leeds United lifted the Fairs Cup for the second time. On the way beating Liverpool in the semi final. Bremner scoring the only goal of the two legged affair away at Anfield. On to the final and Leeds beat the Italian giants Juventus. Bates and Madeley scored one each in a 2-2 draw in Turin. While Allan Clarke nets at Elland Road in a 1-1 draw which earned Leeds the cup on the away goal rule.

Leeds started season 1969-70 on the back of a Charity Shield win, beating Manchester City 2-1 with goals from Charlton and Eddie Gray. Leeds again were up for several honours and worked their way to the FA Cup final for only the second time in their history. The game went to a replay after Leeds drew 2-2 with Chelsea at Wembley. Leeds lost the second game at Old Trafford after extra time 2-1, with Mick Jones scoring in both games. Turns out the London club were a bogey for Leeds in the domestic Cups, they managed to put Leeds out of The League Cup earlier in the season at the 3rd round stage after a replay. In the league it was a different story as United comfortably did the double over Chelsea beating them 2-0 at Elland Road with a goal from Lorimer and a Johnny Giles penalty and at Stamford Bridge The Whites went on a rampage thrashing the Pensioners 5-2 with goals from Jones, Clarke, Cooper, Lorimer and another Giles penalty. In the European Cup and Leeds faced Celtic in a two legged Semi Final. Leeds lost the first leg 1-0 and second leg 2-1, with Billy Bremner scoring the Leeds goal at Hampden Park in front of 136,505, an attendance which is still the British record today. To top this frustrating season for Leeds they finished as runners up again in the League, two points clear of bogey side Chelsea. A nearly season for Leeds United and things could have been different if the fixture list had have been a little kinder to Leeds. At one stage Leeds United found themselves playing 12 hard fought and important games in 31 days.

At the start of the 1968-69 season it was Don Revie that famously told his players that they were going to win the League Championship and do so without losing a single match. It was like a reversal of trends from the previous season, this time Leeds stormed the First Division. United went out in the fourth round of the League Cup away at Crystal Palace and lost out at the third round stage in the FA Cup to Sheffield Wednesday. Leeds also went out as holders in the fourth round of the Fairs Cup to Ujpest Dozsa. The story of this term is the magnificent season Leeds United had in the league. Amazingly they went 28 matches undefeated and conceded only 26 goals all season and never lost at home. Leeds United won the championship with a hefty record of 67 points. The First Division Championship was finally brought home to Elland Road by a formidable Leeds United outfit.
