No Glossing It Over: How Football Cheated Leeds United

The myriad misfortunes of Leeds United Football Club are entertainingly revisited by writer and diehard fan Gary Edwards, with anecdotes and commentary from various Leeds greats.

Between 1964 and 1992, Leeds United won 11 fabulous trophies, but the team were runners-up just as often. They missed out on many more titles and cups, not least club football’s greatest prize, the European Cup, in 1975. In No Glossing Over, lifetime Leeds United fan Gary Edwards reveals how the club has been cheated out of victory in many of these competitions and how it has been the victim of a pattern of serial abuse by the footballing authorities – most recently seen in the unprecedented 15-point sanction meted out at the start of the 2007–08 season. 

Featuring the views of notable Leeds managers such as Bill Shankly, Lawrie McMenemy and Sven-Göran Eriksson, and containing exclusive interviews with top-flight referees and a host of former Leeds players, No Glossing Over examines the injustices that have befallen Leeds United and sheds new light on a shocking catalogue of events that will shame the world of football.
