And back in 1948-49 season the debut of a man many critics rate the greatest player seen in English football - the legendary John Charles. The makings of the modern Leeds was sparked by the appointment of Don Revie as manager in 1961. Revie inspired the creation of a sporting dynasty. No club in modern football history can match the number of home-grown players Revie had in his championship-winning squads of 1969 and 1974. Leeds won the FA Cup for the first time in their history in 1972 - the centenary of the world's most famous club knock-out trophy. After Revie left in 1974 the club had the crazy 44 day reign of Brian Clough.

This book takes you on the roller-coaster ride of Leeds United. It's dramatic, exhilarating and, at times, astonishing.
