The Only Place For Us: An A-Z History of Elland Road

Leeds United's Elland Road home is one of the most iconic sporting arenas in Britain, yet it started life as a desolate patch of land surrounded by coalfields. The Only Place For Us pulls together the never-before-told history of the developing stadium and its changing local environment, revealing the background stories behind Elland Road's most famous features and characters, and the astonishing events it has witnessed. Along the way there have been fires, gypsy curses and a host of cherished memories including the diamond floodlights, the West Stand facade and escapee pantomime horses. Using archive research and insiders' insights, fascinating photographs and fans' memories, Jon Howe retraces an intriguing historical journey to show how Elland Road became one of Europe's most feared football grounds. Through triumph and adversity, neglect and redevelopment, Elland Road has emerged as a fine, modern stadium that's alive with history. This is its unique story.

New second edition out in 2021!
