    Promised Land ePUB ñ Paperback promised pdf, land download, Promised Land EpubI expect I’m in a minority of football fans who are fairly ambivalent about Leeds United It was a little before my time but I’ve heard plenty stories over the years about Don Revie and his ‘Dirty Leeds’ But then they had a very strong core of Scottish players that I looked up to in my childhood Mcueen Jordan Arthur Graham or heard others raving about their predecessors Bremner Lorimer Eddie Gray At one point Revie had seventeen Scots on the books Even later Leeds sides had the odd sprinkling of Scottish swagger think Gordon Strachan Gary McAllister or rec

    Promised Land ePUB ñ Paperback promised pdf, land download, Promised Land EpubA fabulous book Well written intertwining social history of Leeds with the development of Leeds United Insights into the psychology and make up of the Revie era in particular and the author represents the somewhat tainted yet glorious crusade it is to support Leeds United Growing up in Leeds during the 1980s I found the context for the book poignant and a provocative interpretation of this Northern city An excellent read

    Promised Land ePUB ñ Paperback promised pdf, land download, Promised Land EpubI found this book really interesting as it has a lot of personal resonance to me As both a football and a cultural book it’s most definitely worth a four star ratingClavane the author is a Leeds lad and a Leeds United fan and his memoir about the city of Leeds and the club weave around many common threads Although the fourth biggest city in the UK is uite obviously presented as developed and multicultural within these pages a racist insularity permeates with divisions and loyalties being presented and uestioned sporadically Clavane also uses the device of presenting his own Jewish identity to help explain some of the sociological history growth and development of the city and almost in diary and memoir form he also tracks Leeds United’s history growth and development along with all the snakes and ladders that most football clubs face from era to era‘Leeds’ as a concept and actual place proves different to many and differen
