I think the Wolves “ controversy “ may be about the allegations that Don Revie tried to bribe them to throw the match . This also led to Gary Sprake becoming persona non grata for the part he played in the affair . As I remember the FA did agree to a postponement provided that Leeds agreed to not field Hunter , Madeley or Clarke who had all been picked for England duty ( 2nd leg of European championship game versus West Germany )!
This is entirely new information to me.

Is there any proof ?

Ive heard "Leeds, dirty on and off the pitch", ive had that said to me before, but i always assumed it was the hooligan stuff :duno:

I think Gerry Byrne was also injured early on in the game . The game was pretty dull by all accounts which Liverpool did deserve to win . Bremner’s equaliser was brilliant !

Hi Cjay , it’s an allegation that’s done the rounds for years . It was never proven . The attached is a long read but gives you a flavour of it

It was a dreadful game, Billy's goal the highlight of the game for this eleven year old at the time.

What a season after our promotion to Division One

Runners-up to Man U pipped on goal average & FA Cup finalists

Hi Leon , so near yet so far . I think Leeds lost at home to Manchester Utd ( having previously beaten them away and also knocked them out of the FA cup ) and drew their last game against Birmingham 3 - 3 away .

Yes mate that defeat at ER was a killer punch to our title hopes with just a few games remaining of the season. I was at the game & the semi-final at Hillsborough when I was hit on the head with a sharpened down coin. Mum refused me to allow our kid & I to go to the replay as it was a night game & we had school the next day.

Thanks for that, very interesting :)

He sounds very much like Bielsa, which is nice.

A bit of a revolutionary who seems to have been almost airbrushed from history outside of Leeds :(

I dont know if he was guilty of what they say, never proven, so its just a rumour, means nothing without proof.

I enjoyed that thanks :)

Says we were runners up in 64/65 69/70 and 72/73 so we must have been in 4 with the one we won?

And hurry up getting on the Brentford forum, its all stuff 20 years before i was born. :)

It was four FA Cup Finals, my mind went blank there
On there now as you can see, no hanging around waiting for approval with the Brentford boys :)

Interesting stuff.
Theyre not kidding me though, they'll fancy their chances.
Hopefully 7000+ will see otherwise.
