About this book

Leeds United, the Revie Years: A fan's memoir

Self-published fan's perspective on the golden era of the club.

As the 1950s turned into the 1960s, life in Leeds was very different to that we know today. Quieter, slower, less colourful. The city's football team remained mired in mediocrity: a club with no history, and in which the fans had no real hope for the future. The arrival of Don Revie changed all of that. As The Beatles brought colour to the lives of ordinary British people, The Don of Elland Road kicked off a revolution at Leeds United. First rescuing the club from descent into the third tier of English football, then inspiring the team to a decade of English and European success never seen before or since. In 'Leeds United, the Revie Years', lifelong fan Con Egan tells the story of Don Revie's time at the club from the perspective of the supporters on the terraces, hitch-hiking to games, and sleeping on station platforms. The key games are described in detail, and stats recounted.
