English clubs, especially those with such a rich tradition as Leeds, often have a number of clubs against which games are usually more than just football. Locally, they hold many grudges against Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United, Bradford City and Huddersfield Town. On a wider scale, the list of their rivals includes clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea and Millwall.
As for the international stage, two Leeds fans were murdered by Galatasaray supporters when the two sides met in the UEFA Cup in 2000, and the enmity that was instigated then was fuelled further when former Leeds winger Harry Kewell moved from Liverpool to Galatasaray in 2008.
In 1919, a club that went by the name of Leeds City FC was disbanded by the Football League, and that led to the formation of the club we know as Leeds United who took over the former’s ground at Elland Road. It remains their home to this day.
They started out in what was then the Midlands Football League, and it took them only five seasons to move through the ranks and reach the top flight, in 1924. They’ve played in the First Division for the most of their history, even earning the crown of the champions of England on three occasions - in 1969, 1974 and 1992. They’ve added the 1972 FA Cup and the 1968 League Cup to their trophy cabinet. They were also the runners-up of the 1975 European Cup, as well as the UEFA Cup Winners Cup two years before.
It hasn’t been all glory and stars for them though. There were several periods of crisis, the last one starting with a financial disaster which resulted in relegation from the Premier League in 2004. They even went further down to League One in 2007, but they returned to the Championship three years later. Will 2020 be the year of their Premier League return? Let’s wait and see.
