The Square Ball: The First Twenty Years

A twenty year history of Leeds United as captured in the pages of popular fanzine The Square Ball, from its inception in 1989 through to its brief hiatus in 2008.

From the highs of both First and Second Division Championship titles with Sgt Wilko's old pros and giddy European nights with David O'Leary's kids to the nightmare in Galatasaray and the heartbreak of the fretful into football's third tier following Peter Ridsdale and the PLC's calamitous financial incompetency.

Not forgetting, of course, a healthy dose of vitriol for our friends from over the Pennines.

Written as events unfurled, and without the necessary restraints of 'proper' reporting, this collection captures life at Elland Road as it actually was (or felt at least) in a way that writing with the benefit of hindsight can never achieve.

This comprehensive history of TSB was compiled by its founder and original editor, Ian Dobson. All proceeds go directly to Ian with our thanks.
