Looks like your right

Happy 94th LUFC

here's something on the matter

Following the disbandment of Leeds City by the FA due to illegal payments made to players during the first world war the entire playing staff of the club was auctioned off at the Metropole Hotel in Leeds on 17th October 1919. After the auction a group of more than 1,000 loyal Leeds City supporters held a meeting at the Salem Hall in Hunslet where Leeds United AFC were formed.
Owners come and go but Leeds United will be there forever, for the fans - keep Marching on Together.

Could you get a 1000 to chip in at today's prices? £20,000 get's you £20,000,000 (no idea how much we're worth). Makes you wonder!

Happy birthday.

I imagine everyone nipped over the road to celebrate in the Adelphi once the club was saved.
When I was young I said to my mum, 'are the hills in the distance America?'

Saw this yesterday. Reasonably young for a football club aren't we ? Most clubs seem to have had a centenary, let's hope we are a Premiership club when celebrating our.

Happy Birthday Leeds United.
