Don Revie, Donald was born on 10 July 1927 at 20 Bell Street, Middlesbrough. He was educated at Archibald secondary modern school, Middlesbrough, and left school at fourteen to become an apprentice bricklayer, before joining Leicester City Football Club in 1943. Hull City bought him for £20,000 in 1950.
transferred to Manchester City in 1953, and reached his peak as a footballer
in the mid-1950s, winning six England caps and being voted footballer
of the year in 1955. Manchester City won the FA Cup in 1956, using what became
known as the ‘Revie plan’, with Revie, as centre forward, lying deep while
feeding the ball to the other forwards and then moving through in the final
stage, a tactic copied from the successful Hungarian team by the Manchester City
His ambitions for the club were not confined to the domestic scene, and in 1968 Leeds won the European Fairs cup (the UEFA cup), beating Ferencváros 1–0, the first British club to win the cup. Despite these successes, Leeds had the reputation of being perpetual runners-up: they lost to Liverpool in the 1965 FA cup final, came second in the League championship in 1965, 1966, and 1970, lost to Chelsea in the FA cup final in 1970, were runners-up to Arsenal in the League championship in 1971, and lost to second-division Sunderland in the 1973 FA cup final.
In 1974, after Leeds United
had won the League championship, remaining undefeated for the first twenty-nine
games of the season, Revie resigned to take up the position of England team
manager, following the sacking of Sir Alf Ramsey after England had failed to
qualify for the 1974 world cup finals.
Revie died on 26 May 1989 in Murrayfield Private Hospital, Edinburgh, of motor neurone disease. Leeds United legend Terry Cooper once said ‘He was a great man and a great manager who looked after us by wrapping us in cotton wool. On the field of play he made you feel 10 feet tall, so that you wanted to die for Leeds United.’
