Football and the First World War

I am currently writing a book on Football and the First World War based on the article of the same name on this website.

I am very keen to contact any football fans who have information about players who joined the army during the First World War.

We Are Leeds!

 

Ever wondered what the odds are of bumping into a fellow Leeds fan when standing on top of the Empire State Building?

 Ever wondered how many Leeds fans there are in Scandinavia? Australia? Malta? Wherever?

If you have ever pondered such questions then this is the book for you.  It takes the form of a virtual tour around the world taking a unique look at supporters' stories ranging from the scary, to the funny and fascinating. "We are Leeds" focuses on Leeds United supporters scattered around the world and their own personal stories of their experiences following the West Yorkshire club. It starts with supporters' tales in Leeds itself and then goes around the west side of England, into Wales, across to Southern and Northern Ireland, over to America and Canada, down to the Caribbean, further south to Brazil and Argentina, and continues around the globe to places such as South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Zimbabwe, Azerbaijan, Russia, Norway, Iceland and many more. It ends up going up the east side of England and back into Leeds again where more home grown supporters tell their stories. Throughout the book there are tales of the author's experiences following the club and there are three chapters where 'super-fan' Gary Edwards, who has missed one Leeds match, including all pre-season friendlies anywhere in the world since 1968, gives his views on various aspects of the club throughout its history.  In case you are wondering, the reason he missed one game was because of an air traffic control strike in Spain, from where he was due to fly out to Canada to see Leeds in a pre-season friendly!  The book is a very passionate and entertaining read to which every Leeds fan, and every football fan, will relate.
