Leeds United: Player Statistics
There are nearly 45000 'player appearances' in these stats, and
over 6000 goals. They've been gleaned from a spreadsheet generously
provided by Graham, 'Leeds United - A Complete Record 1919-1989' by
Martin Jarred and Malcolm Macdonald, 'Leeds United - The Official
Illustrated History' and 'The Essential History of Leeds United' by
Andrew Mourant, from my extensive pile of newspapers, programmes and
Rothmans yearbooks. I've now double-checked all of these numbers twice
- but I may have missed something during one of my more cross-eyed
sessions. Let me know if you see something obviously wrong: I'll be
re-reviewing the numbers here against these sources over time.
Take a look in the gallery for
a few pictures of players past and present.
To make life a bit simpler (and quicker for everyone), I've stored
the player results alphabetically: pick a letter from the list below
to see the stats. I have not included games from the
war league and cup games in the overall stats, although they do appear
listed in each individual's page. Pre-season games, the Charity Shield
and 'friendly' tournaments such as the Festival of Britain games and
the Makita Trophy are not counted for any purpose.
Below the index, you'll see the top ten appearance and scorers lists
- it's no surprise that the majority of these players are from the
Revie era - you're not likely to see such longevity or loyalty in the
modern game. Next up is a list of all the hat-tricks scored by Leeds
players, followed by a list of rarities: one game and one goal wonders.
Interestingly, nobody appears on both of the latter lists (though Steve
Balcombe came perilously close). There's also a list of players who
managed to score on their debuts - some of whom went on to much
greater things than others!
