That's proper entertainment. They certainly didn't like each other and none of the namby namby, "we're pals now" bullshit you see nowadays with old rivals.Their love, and royalty for Revie was too strong, that anybody would have had hell of a job replacing him. This is depicted in the film. But this was the real deal.
Got dispatched pretty easily by them in the 1970 semi, beaten 1-0 in Leeds and 2-1 in Glasgow. My old man never forgave them for it, pretty much despised them the rest of his days.Before my time I was 5
1970 against the papes they got beat in the semi , how did they play , did they deserve to lose ?
Same here. Although Scotland now a very distant third (if I can be bothered even).They were always a team I enjoyed watching.!
After my first Rangers and then Scotland ( I know ) strips my third one was Leeds.
Still look for their results today, would like to see them back in amongst the big boys.
Wasn't a bad thing actually, they got cocky and though theyd already won it. And underestimated Feyenoord.Got dispatched pretty easily by them in the 1970 semi, beaten 1-0 in Leeds and 2-1 in Glasgow. My old man never forgave them for it, pretty much despised them the rest of his days.
They were a hard team, dirty to some, but they played some fabulous football, especially from 1969 to 1974.I used to have a video called 'Leeds United: The Glory Years, 1965 to 1975' and it's amazing how many times they were runners-up in competitions they ought to have won. They won a fair amount but they were beaten finalists in various cup competitions and runners-up in the league umpteen times, and suffered a ridiculous number of refereeing cock-ups (we know how that feels), not least the infamous WBA game in 1971 that cost them the league, and two blatant cheating performances by referees in the 1973 CWC Final and the 1975 European Cup Final.

I suppose everything is relative here, Leeds bigger than Rangers is a tricky one due to many factors, Rangers is a world wide phenomenon but a lot of that is down to what Rangers are as a club, Leeds cannot claim anywhere close to that kind of support and I would never claim it, even though for a club that has spent more than half its existence in the lower divisions we don’t do bad for global support. Now the bit your not going to like, is Leeds a more relevant club than Rangers? Absolutely but that’s just geography and the fact Leeds play in a higher profile country. There is a lot of love for Rangers in Leeds so i’m Surprised to hear your claims, although it might be put down as banter. As for top 6 support? Well no, 13th actually but then that is due to the restrictions on our ground, our natural support at home would be 45 thousand if the ground allowed it, still 3 thou behind Rangers so you can take some kudos from that, but then again 13k behind the beggars so deduce from that what you will.Worked in Yorkshire for 2 years all I heard was how much bigger club they were to Rangers and how they are a top 6 supported team in England . Cloud cuckoo land .
