Personalities (Minor) - LUFC Books (60 books)

  • Alphabetically
  • By category
  • By decade

Books written by or about personalities that played a smaller role in the club's history, listed for completeness. These books may only contain a small amount of information on Leeds United and/or the individual's time at the club.

As a general rule of thumb, players with less than 50 league appearances for Leeds, and other peripheral figures (such as managers that lasted only 44 days) are found here.
