Leeds United 1998-99 No.0174
Leeds were back in Europe for 1998-99 but after their First Round win in the UEFA Cup against CS Maritimo it was confirmed that manager George Graham was to leave Leeds United. It had been rumoured in the press that he was about to take over the job at Tottenham and after his Leeds side had just secured a Second Round spot in the UEFA Cup it was acknowledged he was to leave. Graham had yielded on the long term contract he had just signed and the Leeds board were on the lookout for a new manager. The fancied Martin O'Neill was told by his current club Leicester City that he was not allowed to talk to Leeds and so the board turned to United's Assistant Manager David O'Leary. David O'Leary had made the progression from the playing staff to George Graham's assistant and was learning the ropes. The team had only played five league games when O'Leary took over, drawing three and winning two. United's progression in Europe was halted after a two legged affair saw The Whites knocked out by AS Roma 1-0. In the Football League Cup and United were knocked out at the Fourth Round stage by Leicester City 2-1 at Filbert Street with Australian Harry Kewell bagging the goal for Leeds. In the FA Cup and United did a little better making it up to the 5th Round stage where Leeds were beat in a replay by Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane 2-0. A very good effort in the League by manager O'Leary and his Leeds side saw United finish in 4th place and with it qualification for the UEFA Cup. The Whites finished the Campaign with 67 points and scored 62 goals.
