Ten of the best Leeds United goals
In part one of our 10 of the best Leeds United goals we saw screamers from Jonny Giles, Harry Kewell, Bradley Johnson, Luciano Becchio and Tony Yeboah. In part two we see some goals with fancy footwork, lightning fast dribbling, waltzing wingers and perhaps another Yeboah thunderbolt.
Mark Viduka, 4th November 2000
Leeds United 4, Liverpool 3
Leeds found themseleves two nil down after 18 minutes against Liverpool but Mark Viduka struck back leveling the scores with goals before and after the break only for Liverpool to take the lead again on the hour. It was then that Mark Viduka latched onto a pass from Dacourt, twisted and turned past two defenders before slotting the ball into the net for his hat-trick. He went on to complete the victory with his fourth a minute later but for me the pick of his goals that day was the hat-tick goal.
Rod Wallace, 17th April 1994
Leeds United 2, Tottenham 0
I love Rod Wallace but he is not perhaps the most remembered Leeds striker of all time. If Lionel Messi had scored this goal however, everyone would be going absolutely mental about it. After a cleared free kick Wallace picked up the goal mid-way in his own half. He crosses the half way line, knocks the ball between two defenders, then a third. Still going he reaches the edge of the area, confronted by two more defenders he curls a shot inside the right post, genius.
Eddie Gray, 4th April 1970
Leeds United 2, Burnley 1
If any goal demonstrates why they called him 'Eddie the Last Waltz Gray' then it's his second versus Burnley in 1970. His first was just as good, a delightful chip from 40 yards but his second is the one that takes the plaudits. A drag back, a shimmy, another turn, another drag back before a clinical finish. A masterly goal from Eddie Gray.
Allan Clarke, 6th May 1972
Leeds United 1, Arsenal 0
Allan Clarke will always be a big part of Leeds United history having scored the only goal in Leeds United's only ever FA Cup final victory. Mick Jones evaded Bob McNab down the right hand side beofre crossing in, Clarke waiting in the box as ever set himself and powerfully headed the ball home for one of Leeds United's most important goals of all time.
Tony Yeboah, 23rd September 1995
Wimbledon 2, Leeds United 4
I know everyone loves the goal against Liverpool, it was an absolute screamer but for me the goal he scored just a month later against Wimbledon was better. The control on the chest, the knee forward, the control to take it past two defenders then he unleashed that right foot. Goalkeepers didn't stand a chance with Tony Yeboah around, the crossbar was pretty lucky to come out of it unscathed as well.
