General (including LUFC) - LUFC Books (67 books)

  • Alphabetically

In general, books about players, matches, teams etc, not focused purely on Leeds. In most cases, the book has been selected for having at least one significant chapter or part of the book related to LUFC.

This is not a fully comprehensive list (understandably), but particuarly good or unusual material has been included where appropriate.
