Leeds United Football Supporter character jug modeled by Stanley J. Taylor and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1992-1999. Leeds United is an English professional football club established in 1919. They have been playing at their ground, Elland Road ever since. The most successful period of Leeds' history to date was during the Don Revie era. Revie was known as the Master, ranked up alongside Matt Busby and Bill Shankly as one of the top managers in the game. The legend of the Don still lives on at Elland Road, with United naming the old kop after him. Under Revie, Leeds won promotion to Division 1 in the 1963-64 season; two league championships, 1968-69 and 1973-74; League Cup in 1968; Fairs Cup in 1968 and 1971; FA Cup in 1972 and FA Charity Shield in 1972. Leeds United has never since reached the glory days of the 1960s and 1970s; however, under Howard Wilkinson, Leeds won the league in the 1991-92 season. Falling into financial difficulty over the past several years, the team was reconstituted as Leeds United Football Club in May, 2007, as a limited company. A team colored scarf forms the handle of the jug.
