Inside Your Matchday Programme: Leeds United

Take a look inside tonight's programme as Leeds United visit Griffin Park under the lights one last time

11 February 2020

There are eight games to go at Griffin Park, with Leeds United coming down to West London this evening. Have a look inside issue 19, with a front cover based on 1952's classic template.

"They are a good team and they will give us perhaps our biggest challenge at home this season."

Pontus Jansson welcomes you to Griffin Park, taking a look at his former team Leeds and how they'll shape up in this evening's From The Field feature.

"The move back to West London with Brentford generated widespread hysteria."

Dan Long profiles former Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea star Tommy Lawton, once captain of England who sensationally moved to The Bees in 1951.

"Leeds were going 13 points clear of third place, then collapsed in the second half"

Hot Off The Press comes from Jonathan Buchan of BBC Leeds, analysing United's season from behind enemy lines.

Greville Waterman goes back to the 1952-53 season for this week's Cover Story: "Lawton had cost a club record £16,000 fee and his signing was headline news."

Nick Bruzon continues his Park Life column with a look at the quirky lives of modern fans: "Hands up who has any connection with, or empathy for, West Ham United? Thought not."

Ben Burgess presents a look at developing the next generation of superstars in The Last Word: "This new philosophy though, gives players a real insight into what a why we do things on a football pitch."


Also inside: Bryan Mbeumo is our pull-out poster, Sean Kelliher gives us the low-down on his ideal season in Away Fan Q&A, there are 12 pages on our visitors from Yorkshire, plus Rob Jex goes back to April 1953 for our Fixture In Focus this week.
