Dirty Leeds: The First Title: Don Revie, Harry Reynolds and the Team of the Sixties

There will never be another story like that of Leeds United Football Club in the 1960s.


Out of grime and obscurity came Don Revie and Harry Reynolds, two self-made northerners and their handcrafted club, and this is their story, from their perspective.


Revie’s Leeds were like Marmite, loved by the faithful, reviled by the rest, forever branded Dirty Leeds for their uncompromising approach. Within five years, Leeds had been champions once, runners-up twice, FA Cup finalists once, semi-finalists twice and raised the League and Fairs Cups but are characterised as the ultimate example of serial bottlers.


The partnership of Revie and Reynolds was made in heaven. Revie couldn’t have succeeded at another club or without Reynolds - they transformed a dreary football club into an industrial giant, but never forgot the little people.


The story of Revie, Reynolds and Dirty Leeds is truly unique.


This is Dave Tomlinson’s fourth book about Leeds United.
