Description

Following Leeds United is anything but easy. The ups and downs as the club has marched on together range from huge highs to near extinction. As the Whites celebrate 100 years since they came into existence in 1919, James Buttler chronicles a dramatic history through the eyes of the 36 managers that have taken their turn in the dugout. From Don Revie and Howard Wilkinson, who both took Leeds United to the pinnacle of
the English game, to Brian Clough, Dave Hockaday and Darko Milanic, whose tenure came and went in a matter of days. The 36 managers of Leeds United have stepped up, excited, enjoyed and endured. Whether successful or not, they took on the challenge.
Relaying their experiences through extensive research and exclusive interviews with
Kevin Blackwell. Simon Grayson, Howard Wilkinson, George Graham and Eddie Gray, the tale of a great club is told.
100 years where dreams, careers and legends were forged. Where trophies and titles were won. Huge European evenings and stylish football, which made Leeds United the best team in the game. And relegations, financial calamities and strife, which tested them all.
100 years of Leeds United has often frustrated, sometimes delivered dreams, but has
never been dull.
