Big Jack and Don wanted the Cup.
Paul Trevillion wanted to thrill.
Elland Road, 1972: 50 days that changed Leeds United forever.
Celebrating 50 years since Super Leeds wowed the world and won the 1972 Centenary FA Cup, The Square Ball are proud to work with legendary artist Paul Trevillion to produce this range of merchandise.
This t-shirt, screen printed to white Gildan heavyweight tees, features original Trevillion drawings of the 1972 FA Cup final team, and a collage design by AcidFC creator Ed Cowburn
Proceeds from this range will be used to work with Leeds United Supporters’ Trust on future Trevillion projects.
In 1972, Leeds United were the best team in the country. Respected, revered, feared. But not loved.
When manager Don Revie picked up the phone to call Paul Trevillion, he thought he was getting a public relations expert. What he got instead was a true born artist, a whirlwind of ideas and action, a charismatic tempest. Revie soon nicknamed him, ‘The Beaver’.
The new look Super Leeds stunned football. Sock tags, tracksuits, tricks and chart hits: what Trevillion achieved with Leeds in 50 days is as fresh 50 years later as it was in 1972.
