Leeds United in Europe
Om Leeds United i Europæiske fodbold. Bogen er på engelsk
From their first steps in Europe in the mid-1960s during the revolutionary Don Revie era, to Champions League football, Leeds have been a force to be reckoned with in European competition.
This evocative collection of action shots, team groups, programme covers and cartoons illustrates the story of United through the triumphs and disappointments of epic struggles against the best teams on the Continent. This includes the winning of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1968 and 1971 (by virtue of beating Ferencvaros and Juventus), narrow final defeats (notable against A C Milan and Bayern Munich), victories decided on the toss of a coin (Bologna and Napoli), the scandal of 1973 and, more recently, the wins over Roma and Spartak Moscow that have whetted the appetite for Champions League action.
