Best Leeds 11

Post by Cjay » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:16 pm

With a twist.

Just a bit of a distraction if anyone can be bothered :)

Today would have been Don Revies 91st Birthday.

Who should manage a greatest Leeds 11 is obvious, but who should be in it?

This has been done before so needs a twist.

Don Revie, Howard Wilkinson, David O'Leary, Simon Grayson and Marcelo Bielsa.

4 managers who did something while here that has seen them be remembered positively to differing degrees, plus Marcelo Bielsa, a manager whose reputation speaks for itself.

So the rules are.
4-4-2 , 4-2-3-1 or 3-3-1-3 formation to keep it simple.
Only permanent Leeds players allowed, no loans.
ONLY 2 PLAYERS PER MANAGER EXCEPT FOR 1 MANAGER, THE 11TH PLAYER CAN BE FROM ANY ERA BUT THERE MUST BE A MINIMUM OF 2 FOR ALL

So 2 for Revie
2 for Wilkinson
2 for O'Leary
2 for Grayson
2 for Bielsa
Plus 1 from any.
