Yes, I gathered :)

Probably picked the wrong Sheffield club.

Leeds Road
Roker Park
and yes you did pick the wrong one !

Missing one is Hillsborough

The first 4 games at neutral grounds was IIRC the FA punishment for the crowd reaction after the WBA Astle (non) OS goal the end of the season before - I'm sure 64 will correct me if I've got that wrong.

Sprake
Reaney
Cooper
Bremner
Charlton
Hunter
Lorimer
Clarke
Bates
Giles
Madeley

Ges - if you're putting Bates in for Jones that gives you 10 out the 11

Absolutely spot on Cat

One of the greatest robberies of all-time, Tinkler should have been strung up from the West Stand rafters

So I'm presuming he came in for someone other than Jones.

Clarke?

Revie's team were similar to Bielsa's line-ups choosing his favoured XI only using the likes of Bates, Yorath, Hibbitt, etc when required. Of course Don had Madeley the rolls-royce at his disposal who could play in any outfield position so was always a starter in his team.

Amazingly the well known Revie XI that included Eddie Gray only played together once.

I'd forgotten Johnny Giles was injured early in the season

That really is odd. I would never have thought or guessed that

Have you ever asked that as a question at one of your Trivia Nights?

No Harry I've never used the question on my quiz nights, it's one of those unusual facts that has been mentioned by Leeds fans for decades

So to reiterate this Revie team only played together once :

Sprake

Reaney Charlrton Hunter Cooper

Lorimer Bremner Giles Gray

Clarke Jones

Primary due to the fact Eddie Gray was often injured & of course at times the rest of the team also were absent sidelined with knocks/suspensions.

Revie having a jewel in the pack in Madeley was a godsend, Paul wore every shirt number apart from the No.1 in his 536 games for Leeds

Madeley also played in four different positions for England

An interesting question that is often floated about by Leeds fans

What do you consider Madeley's best position?

I can't answer that question as I haven't seen him play

But, can you imagine what a Paul Madeley would be worth in today's market.

Leeds v Mansfield in the 5th round of the FA Cup in 1970 Steve

Clarke & Giles scored the goals

Incredibly nearly 50,000 turned up at ER for that game which was the norm in those days for cup matches

Pleasure Steve

Sadly Paul Reaney who played in that cup-tie broke his leg towards the end of the 1970 season unluckily missing the cup-final v Chelsea with Madeley stepping into his boots, also made him unavailable for World Cup selection too
