Leeds United vs Manchester City, 1971-72 Season (Video Highlights)

Leeds United was a powerhouse in the early 1970’s and you can see why in the above video.

Featuring stars such as Allan Clarke, Billy Bremner and Peter Lorimer, who scored a spectacular goal in the above video, Leeds went on to finish the season in second place. First place went to Derby County, managed by Brian Clough (as glorified in the film, The Damned United).

Manchester City, meanwhile, finished the season in fourth place. As you can see in the above video, Manchester City’s away strip from the ’71-’72 season looks quite familiar for those of you who watched City annihilate Spurs last week.

Enjoy the video.

    Wow, half of the big strikers today would have put those balls in the 12th row. Quality play! I also dig the sideburns… 😉

    In 1972 Leeds United win the FA Cup for the first time in their history by beating last year’s winners Arsenal 1-0 in the Wembley final. Allan Clarke scores the winning goal.

    Would love to see Leeds back in the premier league for no other reason than it would be another big rivalry game for us.
