Book Review: Leeds United Miscellany

Other Recent Book Review Articles

By definition, this book is a mixed bag of anecdotes, statistics, facts and historical trivia covering the entire history of Leeds United. But whilst some of the particulars relate to well known games or players, we have others that have clearly evolved from painstaking research and an eye for the obscure. Do you know the full story about David Harvey’s suicidal pet monkey?

There is something in this book for everyone, but chiefly this is a concise history of the club for younger fans needing a brief introduction to the significant pain and occasional pleasure of being a Leeds fan.

Especially for them are sections covering the seven most famous occasions of us being robbed, plus a succinct history of how all our trophies, promotions and relegations were achieved; a fast-track starter course in Leeds United inner knowledge, and it’s all here in one neat package.

This is a book to cherish, a one-stop-shop for the endless oddities, glorious failures, legendary moments and painful travesties that make Leeds United unique.
