The Square Ball: The First Twenty Years of the Leeds United Fanzine

A twenty year history of Leeds United as captured in the pages of popular fanzine The Square Ball, from its inception in 1989 through to its brief hiatus in 2008.

From the highs of both First and Second Division Championship titles with Sgt. Wilko’s ‘old pro’s’ and giddy European nights with David O’Leary’s ‘kids’ to the nightmare in Galatasaray and the heartbreak of the free-fall into football’s third tier following Peter Ridsdale and the PLC’s calamitous financial incompetency.

Not forgetting, of course, a healthy dose of vitriol for our friends from over the Pennines.

Written as events unfurled, and without the necessary restraints of ‘proper’ reporting, this collection captures life at Elland Road as it actually was (or how it felt at least) in a way that writing with the benefit of hindsight can never achieve.
