Leeds United: Leeds United Retro (1980s)

Leeds United



My passion for leeds united was really ignited during the 1980's when I was finally old enough to start going to the games on my own. Admittedly it wasn't the most glorious decade in the football clubs history but it still brings back lots of happy memories.

My favourite player at that time was Neil Aspin, my brother met him when they were both at Park Lane College and he used to get us free tickets. I always used to arrive at Elland Road hours before kick off, the pre-match entertainment wasn't quite Las Vegas standards; but who needs Vegas when you can watch a police dog display team and sing hope you sink when you're fishing to Grimsby Town supporters.



So, you know Neil Aspin gets my vote but what about fellow leeds united fans old enough to remember the Burton days.

It was about 10 yrs ago we travelled from Leeds to (*can't even remember what match it was now), but anyway, we picked Aspin and his kid up and they came to the match with us. Nice stuff.

Really bothers me now what match it was... It might have been Feb 1999 Villa away...
