    It was my 29th birthday. Leeds got a lucky win because the "passback" rule (yes I know it's a law) had just been introduced and their goalkeeper (Han Segers?) was put under pressure by Lee Chapman and Leeds scored seconds later. We became the first league champions since Noah was a lad to go a whole season without an away win.

    I was at Bramall Lane when you won it, lucky win that day TBH but you had a decent team and a little ginger @&)@ in midfield....

    I was also there. April 26 1992. A day that lives long in my memory. Leeds won 3-2 at your place (God bless Brian Gayle) then Liverpool beat THEM 2-0 at Anfield where we had eked out a 0-0 draw just a week before (Easter weekend). I left the ground and travelled to Doncaster where I caught the train to London for a week long course. The tutor was one of THEIR supporters. It didn't pass unnoticed.
