A good player who we let go too early, in my opinion. Hampton was one of those who came through in the post-Revie era who - like most of his peers - just wasn't quite as good as their predecessors (although he made his debut under Don Revie).

But I still think Leeds would have better still having the likes of Hampton, McNiven and, of course, Yorath around than a lot of the squad that took us down in '82.

My main memory of Peter Hampton is that he played in that ill-fated FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United in 1977 - a match which I've always though was a real turning point for Leeds and effectively signaled the end of the road for Revie's boys.

Much more so than either Don Revie leaving the club or the 1975 European Cup Final as most people assume.


Welcome to the forum :thumbup:


Many thanks, Nottingham White :thumbup:

I've been lurking around for a few weeks now and thought it was time to take the plunge.

It is, in my opinion, a really good forum and, as a lifelong Leeds united fan, I'm delighted to be on board.
