David Watkins retired from his role as a Finance Director in Industry in 2011 and since then has devoted himself full time to following his beloved Leeds United. He is a home and away season ticket holder and rarely misses a game. This is the tenth season he has documented his travels and the fortunes of the team, every detail, on and off the pitch.
Marcelo Bielsa arrived as Head Coach at Elland Road with a huge reputation behind him and a huge task ahead in getting Leeds United back to the Premier League. Marcelo joined Leeds at the start of the 2018/2019 season and had an immediate impact. Leeds narrowly missed out on promotion in his first year with a heartbreaking defeat to Derby in the Championship Play-Off Semi Final but Bielsa vowed to have another go. In a famous quote used in the wonderful Leeds United documentary series "Take us Home", Chief Executive Angus Kinnear assured Leeds fans that this time "We're not dicking around with the play-offs anymore!" During the season we lost three legends of the club - Norman Hunter, Trevor Cherry and Jack Charlton and Norman Hunter famously told reporters back in October that it was his dream to live to see Leeds back in the Premier League and it became unthinkable that we would miss out again.
This season began in almost identical fashion to the previous one with Leeds sitting atop the Championship at Christmas but this time they kept the momentum going and, despite the enforced interruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic, secured promotion in the club's centenary season.
This is the complete story of this historic season, on and off the pitch; it's possibly the most comprehensive record you will find, as seen through the eyes of one fan who was there every step of the way from the pre-season tour of Australia to the winning of the title. This is the tenth book in the series and once again it captures all the fun, frolics and controversy of one of the most iconic clubs in the land.
