Six decades of Cardiff City v Leeds United matches.


I’ll post the answers on here tomorrow morning.

60s. This Leeds player from the early sixties turned out for Lancashire county cricket club and had a spell as a manager in the old First Division, can you name him?


70s. The goalscorer in this picture was only 17 when he netted for Leeds on his debut for the club, who is he?


80s. Four players to identify in this picture of a Leeds squad from the mid 80’s. Who  scored for Leeds at Ninian Park during this decade, who scored the winning goal in an FA Cup Final, who is the man described as pound for pound the best signing I ever made by a legendary manager and who is the current day comedian who has a 1966 World Cup winner as his dad and a member of the great Leeds side of the 60s and 70s as his uncle?

    Amazing – I got one straight away!
    60’s is Freddie Goodwin.

  2. The other Bob Wilson says:

    Freddie Goodwin is correct Clive.

  3. Dai Woosnam says:

    Yes, I got Freddie too.
    Perhaps because he was in my mind with him having died just over a fortnight ago.
    He was living in Washington State, just south of Seattle.
    Turns out I was about 5 miles from his home, when driving in the USA three years ago.
