Late 60's

Kid growing up in Gloucestershire - born elsewhere, dad a Geordie (but did not push it onto me), mother a scot.

Who else could I follow - there was only one team to be chosen.

First big memory was the FA Cup final / replay against the blue scum. It has been a joy and a struggle since then.
Love, light and peace!

As that unfolded I worked part-time at the Dean Court Hotel downstairs bar in York - inside the Bar Walls, probably 100 yards from the Minster. The replay against Chelscum (at Maine Road I believe) was traumatic and I refused to serve an a*shole who disrespected Leeds that evening.

A real brain-teaser there mate

Guessing Leeds played them on the last day of the season when we won a league or gained promotion

Other than that answer, I don't know

Have supported Leeds now since 1976. My came Dad came to England during the Don Review era and he started to support them. So, he rubbed off. Because I live in London its was hard to go and watch a game, but my first ever game was against Arsenal and we won 1-0.

Supported them since my first memory, when my Dad took me to Elland Road for a summer training day thing when i was 7. Went to my first game V Blackburn Rovers in the cup (they was in the second tier) Danny Mills scored a free kick i think we won 1-0.
Then second game was V Zurich Grasshoppers in then the uefa cup, also went to a few the season we got relagated.

As i got older started going to more and more game now i very rarely miss a match home or away. Got the bug & just need some more joy on the pitch now. Being nearly 24 im not fortunate enough to witness the glory days.

I would never think twice about even cheering on another club unless they was playing the scum. My dads side are Yorkshire like me & mums are scousers so i could of been a Liverpool fan but thank the lord im a mighty white.

Started supporting Leeds in 1972. FA Cup Final.
Also followed my home town team Scarborough when they were semi-pro and then into the old Division 4 (under Warnock).
Sadly now gone. Hope its the only one?!
