Dirty Leeds 10:31 - Apr 27 with 608 viewsOldsmoker

Eeeee, when I wus a lad, Leeds were known as 'dirty' Leeds as they kept kicking their opponents. With no subs back then, they figured that if the other side went down to 10 men they'd win the match. They usually achieved this within the first few minutes of a game as the ref was always reluctant to send anyone off for their first foul.
Fast forward to today and guess who's bottom of the Fair Play league?
It's Leeds, 486 fouls in 33 matches. 93 yellows.

93 yellows? That's almost as many as Morsy, etc etc

Probably more to do with the alignment of their headless chicken style of play - and need for points.

They’ll always be dirty Leeds to me, as I constantly remind an LUFC supporting chum of mine.

This article on the 1970 Cup Final replay is worth a read. There is film out there of this game. Brutal doesn’t really cover it.

They don't call it murderball for nothing.
