About this book

Gianluca Iuorio Urbone Publishing

Leeds Campione

There has been another "LEICESTER" in the recent history of English football.


... even if we have to go back about a quarter of a century.


This team is LEEDS UNITED.


It is 1991-1992.


The last season of the "old" First Division.


From the following season everything will change in English football.


SKY's money will come, great players will come from all over the world, glorious stadiums will be torn down to make way for new cathedrals.


The English championship will become in a few years "the most beautiful (and richest) in the world".


In this last season with an ancient flavor, Leeds United, which only two seasons before was in the Second Division, turns out to be strong and fierce.


In their ranks there are players of absolute value such as Gordon Strachan, Gary Mc Allister, Lee Chapman, David Batty and Gary Speed.


A talented, charismatic and slightly crazy Frenchman will also arrive mid-season.


His name is Eric Cantona.


Their leader is Howard Wilkinson, visionary and determined coach that when he took over Leeds two and a half years earlier he promised that in 5 years he would bring Leeds to the top of English football.


In fact, he was wrong. It only took 4.


Leeds are considered nothing more than a mere outsider in the title fight that season.


Nobody believes that the Yorkshire team can compete with Manchester United, Arsenal or Liverpool.


But things will be different.
