Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Leeds United have not always played in their famous all white home kit. In which decade did they first start playing in it?

Answer: 1960s

It was just before the 1963-64 season, when Don Revie changed from the old blue and gold strip to all white. "We shall be like Real Madrid, feared by everyone, challenging for everything," said Revie of the new kit. Revie had taken charge of Leeds in March 1961.

The club had huge debts and were very nearly relegated at the end that (Revie's first) 1960-61 season, were it not for a final day defeat of Newcastle United. The board held faith in him, and sure enough, within the year, "Yorkshire's Real Madrid" won the Second Division title, and went on to further glory under Revie.
2. Leeds United first won the League Cup in 1968. Who did they beat?

Answer: Arsenal

Terry Cooper scored the only goal in the 1-0 victory, Leeds first ever domestic cup competition win. Another triumph for Revie's Leeds.
3. Before Alan Smith became well known as a footballer, what else was he well known for?

Answer: He was a BMX champion.

Smith scored with his first touch on his senior debut in a 3-1 thrashing of Liverpool on 14th November 1998. He had turned 18 just three weeks earlier. He gained national attention in the 2000-01 season forging a strong partnership with Mark Viduka, scoring 18 goals, winning two England caps, and a Carling player of the month award.
4. Leeds United lost to ______ in the 1970 FA Cup final.

Answer: Chelsea

The first game finished 2-2, which was the first ever drawn FA Cup Final at Wembley. The replay was at Old Trafford, which was the first ever replay of a final, and both games went into extra time. The only time Leeds were ever behind in either game was when Dave Webb scored with his head in extra time at Old Trafford. Heart-breaking stuff.
5. In 1970-71 Leeds United were pipped to the league title for the second season in a row, this time by Arsenal (Everton were League Champions in 1969-70). A loss at home to West Bromwich Albion in one of the final games of the season caused which controversial event?

Answer: A pitch invasion

Leeds had to play the first four games of the next season on neutral ground because of this! In the game, West Brom scored a clearly off-side goal. The Leeds players, manager Revie, and fans were incensed. A massive pitch invasion occured. The Baggies went on to win the game 2-1, leaving Revie telling the press he had "never felt so sick", but more importantly, without the vital league points.
6. Leeds United won the Inter-Cities Fairs' Cup twice, in 1968 and 1971. What famous competition replaced it after the 1971 Leeds win?

Answer: UEFA Cup

It was replaced in the 1971-72 season. As the last winners of the cup they got to play the first winners, Barcelona, for permanant possesion of it. They lost 2-1.
7. Who (in)famously managed Leeds United for just 44 days?

Answer: Brian Clough

Clough took over from Revie. However, he was an instantly unpopular appointment, as he had been critical of Leeds as a team and Revie as a manager. This obviously didn't sit well with the players, fans, or board, and Clough was quickly sacked after poor results. Armfield was manager between 1974-1978. Eddie Gray was manager between 1983-1985. Billy Bremner was manager between 1985-1988 (he was sacked barely a month into the 1988-1999 season).
8. What feat did Leeds United achieve between 18th March 1939 and 30th August 1947?

Answer: failed to win an away game

18th March 1939 (towards the end of the 1938-39 season) was the beginning of this infamous streak. During the following years the league was on hold because of WWII until the 1946-47 season. Leeds came last that season, and were relegated to the Second Division, drawing one out of 21 away games that season, and losing the other 20 (it was, at the time, the worst record by any team in the First Division - only 18 pts). Leeds finally broke the duck on 30th August 1947, the start of the 1947-1948 season.

Hopefully, they won't ever beat this record, but in reality, it wasn't as bad as it sounds. They beat Brentford away 1-0 on 18th March 1939, then lost the last four away games of that season. They then went 21 games away without a win in the 1946-47 season. At the start of the 1947-48 season, they lost the first away game, but finally beat Southampton away 2-1 on 30th August 1947, making a total of 26 games without a win, away from home.
9. Manager David O'Leary was sacked just before the start of the 2002-03 season. A major factor behind this was his autobiographical account of his four years with Leeds. Finish the title of this now infamous tome: "Leeds United ___________ " ?

Answer: On Trial

...he was a bit of a whinger anyway to be honest. Basically, revelations in the book were viewed by the board at the time to be damaging to the club's image. He was considered by many to be too outspoken, and this book turned out to be the final straw.

The Bowyer-Woodgate trial had caused a lot of negative publicity for the club, and the title of the book really rubbed salt in the wounds.
10. Finish the famous Leeds United chant. "If you're proud to be a Leeds fan _____ " ?

Answer: clap your hands

"If You're Proud to be a Leeds Fan" is also the title of an EXCELLENT book by Tom Palmer which if you are a big fan of Leeds you should read. Think Nick Hornby without the midlife crisis ...
