Jack Taylor 1959-61
QPR manager Taylor seemed to offer much when Leeds appointed him, but they were relegated in his first season
Bill Lambton 1958-59
'A nice enough man, but he wasn't a player, he wasn't a coach, he wasn't anything' - Jack Charlton

Raich Carter 1953-58
Arrogant, opinionated, superior, The Silver Fox did it all as a player. He capitalised on the promise of John Charles and led Leeds to promotion
Major Frank Buckley 1948-53
Despite all his idiosyncrasies and flamboyance, Buckley knew exactly what he was doing and built a strong, if erratic, side around John Charles
Willis Edwards 1947-48
Edwards was an outstanding servant to the club with a lengthy playing career. As a manager he was a dismal failure

Billy Hampson 1935-47
Don Revie apart, Billy Hampson held the post of Leeds United manager for longer than anyone, 12 years
 

Dick Ray 1919-20 and 1927-35
The archetypal one-club man, Ray was City's first captain, United's first manager and returned seven years later to lead the club to promotion in his first season

 

Arthur Fairclough 1920-27
The former secretary-manager of Huddersfield threw his lot in with the newly formed United and led them to a first promotion in 1924


Herbert Chapman 1915-19
The quiet revolutionary who played football in yellow boots and went on to become the game's first great managers - he so very nearly guided Leeds City to promotion

Frank Scott-Walford 1908-12
The successful candidate from a list of 90 applicants, who had to seek cheap unknowns in Ireland as City disappeared under a mountain of debts and had to seek re-election

Gilbert Gillies 1905-08
The first manager of Leeds City, who steered the club into the Football League in 1905, repeating the feat he had earlier achieved with Chesterfield and did again for Bradford Park Avenue
