Personalised Leeds United Football Book - Gift Details

Seeking a top of the table gift for a football fan? If the beautiful game’s a matter of life or death to them, our Personalised Leeds Football Book makes a fabulous gift for any fan of The Peacocks. They’ll read all about their team’s rich history through newspaper coverage written by reporters who were present at the match at that time, including the famous League and Cup wins, memorable games and the stars themselves, past and present.

Picking things up in 1905 – when the club were still Leeds City – and concluding at the end of last season, this football book is the perfect way to relive all of Leeds United’s finest moments.

One of England’s greats, Leeds United is a club that doesn’t deal in dull moments. Two golden eras tend to spring to mind, the second of which proved to be something of poisoned chalice. The first, however, during the 1960s and ‘70s saw the Whites win two First Division titles under Don Revie, as well as the FA and League Cup. All this success is covered in the book, through reprints of original newspaper reports, as are the Premier League years that saw the club competing right at the top – both domestically and in Europe. The subsequent fallout and resurgence also feature, along with the exploits of Leeds’ legends such as Billy Bremner, Johnny Giles and Norman Hunter.

All the articles are printed on luxury paper and independently cut and bound in a hardback book.

Now available with colour print option for coverage from 2006 onwards.

Enjoy a Newspaper History of United

Leeds United was founded in 1919 following the enforced disbanding of Leeds City FC. United formed a formidable back line in the 1940s and the 1950s saw the emergence of John Charles. Charles was primarily a centre back, but he also played as a striker. He soon became one of the greatest all-round football talents in the game and Leeds built their team around him. John Charles departed for Juventus in 1958 and the club began to struggle. Don Revie was appointed player-manager at Leeds United in 1961. He led the side to stability and then incredible success. United won the First Division title in 1969 and 1974 and finished in second place on five occasions. Leeds also won both domestic cups and two Inter-Cities Fairs Cups. Don Revie left the club in 1974, but the team still got to the 1975 European Cup final. United eventually won their third First Division title in 1992, reached the UEFA Cup semi-final in 2000 and played in the Champions League semi-final in 2001.

Finally – Did You Know?

  • Leeds City FC was forced to disband following allegations of illegal payments to players during World War One.
  • United have played at Elland Road Stadium since the club’s formation in 1919.
  • Leeds United AFC was elected into the English Football League on 31st May 1920.
  • Don Revie left Leeds in 1974 to become the manager of the England football team. Brian Clough was named as Revie’s replacement. This was surprising, as he had been one of Leeds United’s biggest critics. Clough was sacked after just 44 days. A film entitled “The Damned United" was released in 2009, which looked back at Clough’s short reign at the club.
  • Leeds United own a radio station called “Yorkshire Radio".
