Nice to see Leeds United really on form against such classy opposition, scraping a win against a League 2 side (and with only one player sent off).

How the mighty have fallen.
 
The days of Don Revie are well and truly gone Brian Clough would be loving it.

Up The Rams.


Wets.
 
This just about says it all, the best part of The Damned United.



Wets.

Dirty Leeds.......yep, & that's just the way we like it! Wasn't it Dave Jones who called us vile animals.......well to us, that's a badge of honour. If you're not Leeds you wouldn't understand.
 
Harvey, Gray, Reanie, Cherry, Madely, McQueen, Bremner, Lorimer, Clarke, Jordan, Gray. That was a team!

Didn't do to well against Millwall though did you?
 
Ahh, Peter Lorimer - The original biter. He only did legs though.

No, you're thinking of Norman 'bites yer legs' Hunter. Peter 'Hot Shot' Lorimer was the guy with the hardest shot in football. Goalkeeper Peter 'The Cat' Bonetti of Chelsea, once believed he'd got his body behind the ball and saved Lorimer's shot, only to find he'd been put in the back of the net with the ball!


Those were the days, when players had 'proper' nicknames instead of unimaginative crap like 'Giggsy' or 'Gazza' or 'Scholesy' or 'Becks' etc?

1975, watching the 1975 European Cup final on a black & white tv in a flat in west London. Bloody hell, what a magnificent team and then to lose to a bunch of German "bankers" who blocked their goal for 88 minutes to win on a couple of rebounds. If I had been in Paris that day I would have been tearing the seats out as well.

You are absolutely correct sir. Thanks for reminding me.

I first went to Elland Road when I was about 7 or 8 so it would have been 61/62.

Billy Bremner was fouled in the penalty area and insisted on taking the kick himself even though he could barely stand up. Naturally he missed. Only cost half a crown in those days. (12 and a half p for any snapper whippers).

That`s all I remember.

I had the privilege of seeing Leeds last game in the Prem League, snigger.
