Part 2 - The cups that cheer -
Results and table - printer
By the spring of 1967, Don Revie
had been in the management hot seat at Elland Road for six years.
During that time he had single-handedly wrenched Leeds United
up by their mediocre bootstraps to sit at the peak of English
His reputation was soaring, and not just for transforming United's
playing fortunes. During a two-day conference of 60 business executives
at Harrogate in December 1967, Revie would be cited as an example
by Sidney Rose, manager of the Leeds office of the business consultancy
Peat Marwick Mitchell, who explained how Revie's tactics could
be applied to industry.
"Five years ago the club was in the doldrums," he told the audience.
"On the scene came a new manager who believed in a different approach
- professional management of the highest standard. Mr Revie began
by analysing the strength and weakness of the club and evaluating
its resources. He knew it was necessary to have both short- and
long-term objectives. The first was to escape relegation, and
to achieve this he recruited a few experienced players. The long-term
objective was to get into European football and make money by
top grade performances in the English League. He had to plan the
utilisation of his playing resources, and plan for their deployment
and replacement at the appropriate time. Methods of operation
and team performances had to be continually improved - and he
knew he needed a management information system or services to
help him. He realised his information service could not be tacked
on to the day to day activities of the club, and that the people
involved had also been involved in the separate aspects of running
the club. Consequently, he needed people who could turn in good
performances whether they were employed in an operating capacity
or in using analytical skills and judgements in order to interpret
back to top
"This meant he had to have quality and ensure that it was available
in sufficient quantity to meet emergency. He first of all employed
someone to analyse competitive strength in great detail to keep
abreast of new product development in terms of tactics throughout
Europe, and to provide regular information on these matters. He
established a manpower policy, and set in motion information systems
which involved the screening, recruitment and development of young
players. He not only evaluated performances on match days, but
instituted a system of performance testing of young players in
pilot plant conditions, using the most up to date medical equipment
as measuring instruments."
The Elland Road financials had improved markedly under Revie's
stewardship. The club declared a profit in the year to July 1967
of £64,174, topping the £60,000 level for the second successive
year. Five years previously there had been a six figure overdraft.
Directors' loans of £40,000 had now been paid off and the bank
overdraft stood at a mere £453. The picture was rosy.
In terms of onfield activity, Bobby
Collins and Jack Charlton
had both been voted Footballer of the Year and won full international
caps, along with Gary Sprake, Billy Bremner, Willie
Bell, Alan Peacock, Norman
Hunter and Johnny Giles. Yet
despite all the progress made, the trophy cabinet echoed hollowly,
with just the Second Division championship trophy and a couple
of West Riding Senior Cups to show for their status. There was
a distinct fear that United would never realise their potential.
The apprehension was fuelled by the early season experience of
missing out on the Inter Cities Fairs Cup when they could manage
not a single goal in either leg against Dinamo Zagreb. Questions
were raised over Revie's reluctance to go for it in the
second leg at Elland Road; the manager had Paul Reaney at
United suffered one of their worst starts to a season for years.
After three League games, Leeds had one point and a single goal
to their credit, and were rock bottom. It seemed that the upstarts
had had their time in the sun.
Eric Stanger wrote in the Yorkshire Post after an opening day
draw, "Sunderland, tighter in defence, brighter in attack, were
full value for their unexpected point at Elland Road where Leeds
United began the new Football League season much as they ended
the last. As ever their main virtue was enormous appetite for
work, their weakness the long-standing one of inability to turn
a reasonable proportion of the chances created into goals. Until
they can find at least one consistent marksman, Leeds may continue
to mourn the fact that a major honour has not come their way."
Phil Brown of the Evening Post wrote after the game: "Only O'Grady,
although rather skimpily fed, looked a good First Division forward."
Revie had spent much of 1967 chasing a new centre-forward, resigned
to the fact that the knees of Alan Peacock could not withstand
the demands of First Division football. He had been reluctant
to meet the prices demanded and had persevered with the potential
of Jimmy Greenhoff and Rod Belfitt,
but it was clear that Leeds needed a proven goalscorer if they
were to seriously compete for honours.
After defeat at Wolves on August 28, Stanger complained, "So
bankrupt is their attack that they must be wondering where the
next goal is coming from." Don Revie played down any talk of crisis,
saying, "They have surprised me before and they are quite capable
of doing so again. While it is nice to get off to a good start,
don't forget the Football League is decided over 42 games. Last
year we got only 19 points from the first 17 games, but we were
still there at the finish."
In between the two legs of the Fairs Cup final, United got their
season off the ground when two goals by Belfitt secured the points
against Fulham, though they had to cope with the dismissal of
Billy Bremner for arguing with the referee. Peter Lorimer's goal
at Southampton was good enough for a point and then the Scot smashed
a hat trick
to see the side through in the League Cup against Luton Town.
back to top
A sound defensive display at Everton on 16 September ensured
that Eddie Gray's well taken goal after eight minutes secured
both points, and then Lorimer made the difference again with two
goals in each of the wins against Burnley and Leicester. Three
straight victories saw United eighth by the end of the month,
reassuring supporters that the early problems had been a blip
rather than a full scale crisis.
On 22 September, Don Revie smashed the club's transfer record
by paying Sheffield United £100,000 for 22-year-old Mick Jones,
the holder of two full England caps. Jones had scored 63 goals
in 149 games for the Blades and the move outraged Bramall Lane
boss John Harris, who complained "it would be the biggest mistake
the club had ever made." He came close to resigning over the affair.
Revie had been trailing Jones for a year, but had continually
been given short shrift. However, Sheffield had reinforced their
midfield by buying Willie Carlin from Carlisle United for £40,000
and the money from the Jones deal was needed to balance the books.
Revie was delighted to have got his man, though new chairman Albert
Morris claimed it was "a heck of a lot of money to pay for a player."
Jones himself claimed, "I cannot say that I am glad to leave
Sheffield, but it was too good an offer to refuse. I don't want
to leave my colleagues or the loyal supporters at Sheffield. I
hope the Leeds crowd will be as good to me." It was a muted commitment
to the Elland Road cause, but Jones' hard working displays quickly
won him a fan base in the West Riding.
Jones' debut came during the 3-2 win against Leicester the day
after his move, and he received this tribute from Richard Ulyatt
in the Yorkshire Post: "Mick Jones did not find his new distinction
of being Yorkshire's costliest footballer too burdensome … Jones
did not score and until the 50th minute did not get a chance of
scoring, when his header, from an almost impossible position,
was just wide of goal, but he looked to be far and away Leeds
United's best centre-forward since John
Charles first left Leeds in 1957. Leeds will play better than
this and there will be more tangible evidence of Jones' value,
but there was no doubting the excitement he caused as he turned
and twisted in the air or tussled, usually successfully, on the
ground with Sjoberg for possession."
In an attempt to keep their own finances close to balance, as
September ran into October United agreed two departures, with
Willie Bell moving to Leicester for £40,000 and Alan Peacock to
Plymouth Argyle for £10,000.
Bell had been a stalwart of the side since 1962, but grew restless
when an early season injury saw him lose his place to Terry Cooper.
The former winger turned in some outstanding performances, using
the role as a platform for strong attacking surges. Bell feared
a lengthy stay in the reserves and was granted a transfer.
Peacock had made only 6 starts in the previous 18 months after
a succession of serious injuries. He came close to selection for
the 1966 World Cup squad, but his fragile knees let him down just
at the wrong time.
The two internationals had given sterling service to the club
and Don Revie was sad to see them depart, but it was a clear sign
of his commitment to youth. Earlier in the year, Bobby Collins
and Jim Storrie had also left the club.
The development programme that Revie had nurtured was proving
a conveyor belt of Britain's finest young talent. Eddie Gray,
Terry Hibbitt, David Harvey
(all 19), Mick Bates, Peter Lorimer (20), Jimmy
Greenhoff, Rod Belfitt (21), Gary Sprake, Paul Reaney (22),
Terry Cooper, Paul Madeley, Norman Hunter (23), Billy Bremner
and Mike O'Grady (24) were
striplings next to the 'old hands' of the squad, Albert
Johanneson, Johnny Giles (27) and Jack Charlton (32). Rarely
has there been such an outstanding set of youngsters at one club
- only O'Grady and Giles had cost a bean.
One could sense the pride in Revie whenever he paused to think
his young gems. It had taken six years of hard work and late nights,
but he was now reaping a wonderful harvest.
Most of those years had been spent working closely with chairman
Harry Reynolds. 67-year-old Reynolds had announced at the start
of the season that he was to retire due to ill health. He had
suffered with arthritis for some time and relied on crutches to
get around. His replacement was Albert Morris, a director since
1961. Revie's relationship with other chairmen would never be
as strong as that with Reynolds, who had been his mentor. The
influence of the board diminished substantially following the
demise of Reynolds. Revie was now omnipotent and it played to
his ego. He now took the club on to a new and very impressive
level. Leeds' passage through the autumn of 1967 was like a veritable
juggernaut, as they pursued every trophy on offer.

The signing of Jones represented the final piece in the jigsaw.
The defensive old firm of Sprake, Reaney, Charlton and Hunter
was boosted by the flair of Cooper on the left and the use of
two overlapping full-backs offered new options. The formation
was generally 4-3-3, though it could fluctuate between 4-2-4,
4-4-2 and even 4-5-1, thanks to the flexibility of Lorimer, Greenhoff
and Gray. Bremner and Madeley provided the key midfield platform
for launching attacks. Despite being deprived of the wide men,
Johanneson and O'Grady, and playmaker Johnny Giles, United's fluid
approach was more than a match for most of the teams they faced.
After the Leicester victory on 23 September, Leeds had to be
content with a goalless draw at West Ham, but then went to town
as the new Fairs Cup campaign began. Spora were limited opponents
and United turned in a stunning performance in the first leg in
Luxembourg. They were four up at the break, with Lorimer getting
three and the other a long-range effort from Bremner. Lorimer
added his fourth in the 54th minute, pouncing on a header from
Jones. Greenhoff snatched two more after 69 and 76 minutes before
Madeley ran through the opposition to make it 8-0 with ten minutes
to go. A minute later, Jones got the reward for some fine work,
heading home his first United goal. The 9-0 result was a club
record and set United up nicely for a
home match with Chelsea.
The Stamford Bridge club was in disarray after the resignation
of manager Tommy Docherty on the eve of the game - United gave
them a football lesson. Billy Bremner was in his final game before
starting a 28-day suspension and inspired a remarkable 7-0 win.
He finished things off with a spectacular overhead kick after
being involved in five of the other goals. The rout left United
nicely poised in the table, sitting fifth, three points behind
surprise pace setters Sheffield Wednesday with a game in hand.
An easy 3-0 victory in the League Cup against Bury, Bobby Collins
and all, made it 19 goals without reply in the space of 8 days.
The absence of Bremner was badly felt at West Bromwich three
days later as United's unbeaten run of 11 matches came to an end.
Two Jeff Astle goals were scant reward for Albion's superiority.
The goals were the first conceded by Leeds in six games.
The return tie against Spora put the setback into perspective
as United ran in another seven goals without reply. Albert Johanneson,
restored to full fitness after a lengthy absence, got a hat trick.
The South African scored to wrap up a 2-0 victory over Newcastle
a few days later after a Lorimer goal had earned a lead in a scrappy
The only cloud on the horizon was a marked inability to win away
from Elland Road. In eight trips, the only victories had come
at Everton and Spora. There was no relief when United visited
Manchester City on 28 October. Eric Stanger in the Yorkshire Post:
"Unhappily for Leeds they have so far scored only twice in seven
away matches and until they learn to play to and make better use
of Jones, their defence will continue to have to shoulder an almost
intolerable burden. Without Bremner and Giles stamping their authority
on the midfield, the Leeds side is without a hub on which to revolve.
is having to do his own chasing, his own running and is mostly
being left to try to carve out his own chances. You don't buy
an expensive racehorse and put it between the cart shafts. That,
it strikes me, is what Leeds are doing with Jones.
"Leeds went into this game as they do in so many away from home
with the idea of getting a point. Everything they did suggested
that defence was their first and last consideration and their
rare attacks more designed to relieve pressure than to score goals.
Attack, they used to say, is the best form of defence. It isn't
any more - not in football. Any side which puts all its eggs in
that particular basket would soon be in deep trouble. But it is
also true that unless you score you cannot win. A 0-0 draw is
the best you can achieve."
Gary Sprake turned in a sterling performance at Maine Road, denying
City with breathtaking saves that revived memories of Swift and
Trautmann, as United held out until five minutes from the end.
But then Summerbee's fine chip to the far post was headed in by
Bell. Cooper cleared the ball, but it had already crossed the
City's victory saw them overtake Leeds in the table, but United
were back to form the following week when they hammered Arsenal
3-1 at Elland Road. Jones headed home his first League goal from
a Gray corner after 25 minutes before limping off at half time.
Lorimer added a second from the penalty spot in the 56th minute.
A deflected effort by McLintock deceived Sprake to leave the points
in danger until Gray made the game safe nine minutes from time
by slamming home a Greenhoff centre.

The Gunners had threatened a late equaliser, but in the end victory
was comfortable, as Phil Brown reported: "United finished the
match playing better football than they have for some weeks …
I fancy it is not realised as deeply as it might be that not just
the team but its individuals have been suffering from the absence
of Bremner, Giles and O'Grady … Jones was playing well when he
touched up an ankle which, while not thought serious, has been
bothering him since his transfer … The service to him had appreciably
improved and at last one felt United had a real threat in their
Four days later, Leeds added the scalp of second-placed Manchester
United in exciting fashion.
Phil Brown: "Billy Bremner, emerging like a rocket from the vacuum
of suspension, can be proud of his team as well as of his own
shining display. He played as if he had been out of football for
10 minutes - control, anticipation, play reading and sharpness
were all there. He forced United's forwards into onward aggression,
seeing and widening and making openings like nobody else in the
The only goal of the game came after 23 minutes when Jimmy Greenhoff
shot home from an oblique angle with Alex Stepney expecting a
cross. Leeds were well worth the win, which took them fourth,
two points behind leaders Liverpool.
After three high profile encounters with table topping opponents,
the Whites stumbled to a 1-0 defeat at struggling Sheffield United.
For fully 81 minutes, the Blades held Leeds at bay with winger
Alan Woodward depping for England keeper Alan Hodgkinson, withdrawn
with a dislocated finger. Hill's headed goal after 61 minutes
left Don Revie's men with a sinking feeling.
Two Greenhoff goals in midweek secured a fourth round win in
the League Cup at Sunderland, but United struggled again when
they entertained bottom club Coventry City at Elland Road on November
18. They were still missing a number of internationals and their
forward line included Bates, Hibbitt and Belfitt. Phil Brown:
"Once again United's finishing let them down with a bump. Their
approach play, even with its over fondness for the high ball,
was quite good enough to have won the match comfortably, even
against a side dedicated in the main to a point. But the old faults
of being in the wrong places for the right balls of flurry at
the moment of shot or header kept bobbing up. The forward line
was once again young. There was not a mature player in it, and
Setters' experience as well as his considerable football ability
told time and again in his penalty area, even when Bremner went
up into attack."
Peter Lorimer gave Leeds a 25th minute advantage, but City keeper
Bill Glazier kept them out thereafter, and Coventry snatched a
second half equaliser to leave the home team cursing their luck.
An even younger forward line, featuring 20-year-old Denis Hawkins,
a Welsh Under-23 international, in only his second League game,
was on duty a week later for a difficult trip to Nottingham Forest,
while David Harvey came in for a rare start in goal. United enjoyed
a return to form and blistering second half strikes by Lorimer
and Greenhoff put the icing on a hard working performance as Leeds
On November 29, United resumed their European campaign with a
visit to Partizan Belgrade. A couple of years earlier, Partizan
had beaten Manchester United in the European Cup semi final before
losing to Real Madrid in the final.
Leeds went into the first leg without Sprake, Giles, Jones, Johanneson
and O'Grady, but took a surprise lead in the 24th minute through
Peter Lorimer. He hammered in
a trademark free kick from 28 yards. Goalkeeper Curkovic could
not keep out the thunderbolt, despite getting both hands to the
United brought Bates on for Gray at half time and continued to
be the more dangerous side, with Belfitt adding a second goal
eight minutes after the break, shooting home after Jack Charlton
headed a corner across goal.
The goal roused Partizan from their torpor and they had a period
of pressure - Norman Hunter had to clear off the line with Harvey
well beaten. It was a rare mistake by the young keeper, who pulled
off a string of excellent saves.
At about three quarter time, Turkish referee Rabaca dismissed
Bates after an incident with left-back Damjanovic; Bates kicked
out in retaliation after he was fouled.
United rallied under pressure, but Partizan used their numerical
advantage, carving out decent opportunities. Nevertheless, there
were only three minutes to go when defender Paunovic headed in
after a goalmouth scramble.
Leeds held on to secure a valuable victory and Phil Brown was
lavish in his praise: "With the same indefatigable powers of dissection
that they used in beating Forest 2-0 at Nottingham last Saturday,
they beat Partizan in Belgade 2-1, and darn nearly repeated the
2-0 … United's stupendous work rate all round the side was much
too high for Partizan. Their highly esteemed forwards lost their
touch and sometimes their heads - centre-forward Haanagic had
some sinister moments as Jack Charlton's face and Billy Bremner's
legs testify today - for most of the match. Fast challenging and
shrewd marking blunted their attack, and their equally esteemed
half-back line, or back four, was uneasy from start to finish
against United's fast breaks from defence."

Spurred by victory, United returned home to see off Stoke City
2-0 with goals from Lorimer (his fourth in four games) and Madeley.
Terry Cooper was the star performer with a wonderful combination
of defensive and attacking moments. He was proving one of United's
The second leg against Partizan found Leeds guilty of complacency.
Lorimer gave them the lead after half an hour but they were wasteful
with their opportunities, and centre-forward Petrovic equalised
after 56 minutes. He had earlier hit the bar.
United went into their shell, content to play out time, though
it looked like they had miscalculated when Kosic put the ball
in the net six minutes from the end. Referee Huber disallowed
the goal for offside.
It was a fortunate win and Don Revie acknowledged as much afterwards,
saying, "They are a very fine side by any standards. We played
very well in the first half, but I was glad when we had won the
A nine game unbeaten run was unceremoniously ended three days
later when United lost 2-0 to
Liverpool at Anfield. The Reds thus reinforced their second
placing in the table, leaving Leeds in the fourth spot they had
occupied for three weeks. The Whites were nowhere near their best,
but the defeat spurred them on to new heights during the weeks
Bremner and Lorimer goals secured a routine Elland Road victory,
seeing off Stoke City in the League Cup quarter finals. The win
was the twelfth in 16 unbeaten home games, during which they had
conceded just eight goals.
They needed an equaliser from Eddie Gray to earn a 2-2 draw at
Sunderland but returned to winning ways against Hibernian in the
Fairs Cup third round.
The Scots adapted the better to frosty conditions and a bone
hard pitch, though United welcomed back Jones and Giles. It looked
plain sailing when Gray gave Leeds a fourth minute lead after
his first effort was blocked. Eric Stanger: "Despite their early
lead, Leeds did not have a comfortable first half. Hibs were some
time settling after that early blow but later they kept Leeds
fretting with some neat football, much of it inspired by Cormack,
a most talented player, who made the most of generous latitude
allowed him in midfield by Bremner.
"The most controversial incident of the first half was when Stein,
the bustling Hibs centre-forward,
challenged Sprake on his line. Sprake, instead of throwing the
ball away, dallied. When he bounced it at Stein's feet, Stein
prodded it into the net. At first the referee pointed to the centre,
but then disallowed the score on a linesman's signal. Certainly
Stein had a foot up during the encounter but one would have had
scant sympathy with Sprake had the goal counted."
Lorimer had a goal disallowed for offside after 62 minutes, but
United were relieved to win. It didn't look to be enough, but
Don Revie put on a brave show afterwards, saying, "I thought Hibs
mastered the conditions better than our boys - but we are not
out yet. It is bound to be difficult now but all matches are hard
for Leeds these days, so that is nothing new to the players. If
we get one goal up there, Hibernian have to score three to beat
us. We usually save our best performances for away games."
Terry Lofthouse in the Evening Post: "What of the return of Jones
and Giles? The best that can be said is that the match practice
would be invaluable. Jones was never able to put his biggest asset,
his heading ability, to use due to poor service, and Giles came
tellingly into the picture only in the last quarter."
Eric Todd in the Guardian: "Leeds were as disappointing as I
have known them. They had practically nothing to offer up front
apart from one or two sorties by Gray and Greenhoff, and they
showed an unwanted carelessness … Bremner and Hunter did all that
was required of them in the first half, but after the interval
they became almost as dilatory as the rest."
United were lacking again three days later against Wolves, failing
to turn decent possession into goals. After Derek Dougan gave
the Midlanders a 42nd minute lead, Wolves kept their cool under
some frantic United pressing and seemed on the way to both points.
There were only five minutes left when Jones prodded the ball
home after goalkeeper Williams could only parry Bremner's shot.
With seconds to go, Charlton pulled off an unlikely winner when
he bundled home from a Cooper cross.
It had been a narrow squeak and the sign of a team in need of
a break - they had played seven games in the space of 22 December
days. But they were now into the rush of festive fixtures and
on Boxing Day made the short trip to Sheffield to face a Wednesday
side that was snapping at their heels in the League.
back to top
United recovered some of their composure, as reported by Phil
Brown in the Evening Post: "After making very hard work of beating
Wolves 2-1 at Elland Road, they went to Hillsborough and smartly
demolished Sheffield Wednesday's unbeaten home record, which extended
to last March. The score was only 1-0, and a penalty by Giles
at that, but it gives no idea at all of United's mastery … their
winning grip was tightened before Giles scored just on the interval.
United could have been three up by the break … with crisp and
well carved football all over the field."
The return pairing came on 30 December and was a thrilling encounter,
as reported by Richard Ulyatt in the Yorkshire Post:
"There were many opinions to be formed and conclusions to be
drawn at Elland Road on Saturday and perhaps the only unanimous
one was that it was an exciting match, a credit to both teams
and to the Football League.
"Some of my own impressions were that Jones is now becoming the
powerful centre-forward that Leeds United needed, that Leeds United
are a much better team when Giles is at inside-left, that Hunter
lacks confidence only in the accuracy of his right foot and that
while the result reflected the overall play Wednesday would not
have been greatly flattered by a draw.
"On the first half form there was only one team in it. Only because
the referee and the nearer linesman were unsighted was Charlton
deprived of a goal in the third minute when the ball hit the underside
of the bar and bounced down over the line, I thought. Always competent
and sometimes brilliant goalkeeping kept the score down to 2-0
by half time, at which stage Leeds were playing so fluently that
the merit of Wednesday's efficient defence was obscured by the
cleverness of Jones, Giles and Gray.
"It needed a clever and persistent piece of foot craft by Jones
to beat the challenge of Ellis and Smith on the touchline before
he crossed the ball for Greenhoff to score the spectacular first
goal and the movement was almost repeated before Gray headed the
second goal. On that occasion Jones' cross eluded friend and foe
before, as the ball ran loose, first Bremner and then Branfoot
realised the possibilities. Bremner narrowly won a race for possession,
whipped the ball back into the goalmouth and there was Gray, poised
to head what seemed a match winning second goal with 10 minutes
of the first half left.
"Half an hour later the score was unchanged and only the first
inklings that Wednesday retained hope were to be seen. Jones,
who found Mobley a much more formidable centre-half than Ellis,
the official one, pulled a thigh muscle, treating which brought
a two-minute delay, and a welcome breather for Wednesday.
"They were a different team afterwards. First Ritchie scored,
getting two kicks at the ball in a confused goalmouth amid unchallenging
opponents and then Whitham equalised with a shot which was deflected.
It was frustrating to most spectators who had expected an easy
win for Leeds and there were many anxious moments with close shaves
for Sprake before, to the relief of Leeds rather than Wednesday,
the referee started looking in earnest at the seconds finger of
his stop watch.
"But when he blew his whistle it was not for full time but for
a foul by Mobley on the harmless Madeley three yards outside the
Wednesday penalty area. Had Wednesday moved the requisite ten
yards away from the ball before the kick was taken all would have
been well, for Giles' lob was easily cleared.
"But the referee was not satisfied, moved the players back and
ordered the kick to be retaken. This time Giles tapped the ball
back and to his left and Hunter, rushing up like a tank, hit it
with his deadly left foot through the defensive wall of players,
past the unsighted Springett and into the back of the net, which
surprisingly remained untorn.
||Top of Division One - December 30, 1967
"It was a goal in a million, a fitting end to an exciting if
sometimes disappointing year at Elland Road and it was Leeds'
29th goal of the season in League matches on their own ground.
Critics who discredit Leeds' scoring ability will be surprised
to know that only two other clubs in the first two divisions have
scored more goals at home this season than Leeds."
It had been a breathtaking local derby and wrote a positive finis
to what had been an exciting twelve months. Still no trophies,
but a run of just one defeat in 13 games had left Leeds in the
hunt for four major trophies.
