The Soul Of Leeds In 50 Moments (No 19)

Black day in Birmingham The misanthropic thuggery of some Leeds fans reached its nadir in May, 1985. First there was the fighting at Birmingham that saw a wall collapse and a fan killed. That happened to be the day of the Bradford City fire in which 56 people died.
