LUFCFANZONE - Leeds United Podcast
#16 David Haigh (1/2)
In the show David spoke to us about the finances involved in the deal between GFH and Ken Bates, how the Iranian Government helped finance the deal, and how he was instructed to fire Brian McDermott at half-time during Leeds’ 6-0 loss away to Sheffield Wednesday in 2014!
#14 David Hockaday
We spoke to David about approaching Massimo Cellino about signing Virgil Van Dijk but getting Giuseppe Bellusci, how him and the players had to bring in their own pack lunch for training at Thorp Arch, and how he was approached for the job when he was sitting in his back garden - initially thinking he would be joining as a role within Leeds’ academy!
#13 Lee Chapman
We spoke to Lee about scoring the goal at Bournemouth to secure the Second Division title, scoring 16 goals in Leeds’ First Division title winning season less than two years later, and celebrating with Gary McAllister, David Batty, and Eric Cantona on his sofa on live television!
#12 Tresor Kandol
We spoke to Tresor about spending time in prison less than 6 months before his move to Elland Road, scoring the winning goal in Leeds’ first ever match in League One, and of course, backflips!
#11 Tommaso Bianchi
We spoke to Tommy about his switch from Italy to Elland Road and the main differences both on and off the pitch, and why him and the rest of the overseas arrivals in the summer of 2014 couldn’t compare the quality in the Championship to the Second Division in Italy!
#10 Chris Wood
We spoke to our former number 9 about scoring 30 goals in all competitions in his second season at Leeds, how he dealt with negativity from a section of Leeds fans during his first year at the club, and why he didn’t play against Sunderland just days before his £15million move to Burnley in 2017!
#9 Rodolph Austin
We spoke to Rudy about the impact Massimo Cellino had at Leeds United, the disallowed goal he scored from the half way line against Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup, and what it was like to play against Lionel Messi in the 2015 Copa America whilst captaining Jamaica!
#8 Casper Ankergren
We spoke to Casper about Leeds’ relegation to League One for the first time in the club’s history in 2007, keeping a clean sheet at Old Trafford in Leeds’ famous FA Cup win over Manchester United, and how he made his greatest ever save when Hartlepool United visited Elland Road over 10 years ago!
