About this book
A fascinating journey into the dark heart of the ill-fated Leeds Utd FC, in the tradition of "The Damned United". In the last 50 years, the club has had a chequered history, from Don Revie's Dirty Leeds to Peter Risdale's Greedy Leeds to their fall from grace and their current position in the 2nd tier of league football. Part memoir, part sports book, part social history.
Anthony Clavane loves Leeds - certainly the football club, but also the city, and the tribes that make it. Now that he is an exile in the South, his frequent pilgrimages to the stadium speak for themselves. But he no less loves the rarely-glimpsed back-streets of his youth. This is a book about football.
