The Soul Of Leeds In 50 Moments (No 10)
Barry Davies condones crowd violence Leeds were top of the table and going for the 1971 title when the most notorious offside decision not given undid them. Ray Tinkler was the ref, West Brom the visitors and Jeff Astle the scorer. There were 23 arrests, players jostled the referee and the game was held up for five minutes. "The Leeds fans are going absolutely mad and they have every right to," Davies said in the BBC box. Arsenal duly won the title by a point.
