Can you guys/lasses remember the first Leeds game you watched life?

I`m not 100% sure, but it was either a 1-0 win against Man.City or a FA-Cup 1-1 draw with Coventry (both at home). I remember a 3-0 loss away to Southampton and getting into the wrong train landing in Plymouth I believe...and a 3-3 at home draw against West Ham stands out in memory.

All of them must have been prior to 1982...we were terrible s**t then. Probably worse than the current team. :)

1963/64 - Leeds 3-1 Grimsby

Billy Bremner scored & became an instant boyhood hero

Billy will be turning his grave with the current inept soft performances

Think it was a 0-0 vs Villa but not certain.

My very first live Leeds match was a friendly v Colo Colo in Melbourne. First visited Leeds in 2005 and watched us lose 2-0 to Ipswich at Elland Road.

First game I watched was Leeds Vs Deportivo La Coruna in the Champions League Quarter final in 2000/2001 when we won 3-0 I was 8 years old and although I had a passing love of the club at that point I was hooked for life. Even got some of the lads at school supporting Leeds until they moved onto more fashionable clubs .

1984/85 season first match of the season away to Notts Co. We were 1-0 down with a very early goal and we were still queuing to get in when Leeds equalised - Tommy Wright the scorer. Leeds went on to win 2-1. Then saw the 2nd match which was a 2-0 home win v Fulham. Later that season also went to the 1-1 home draw v Cardiff. Was a long while before I actually saw Leeds lose.
