Interesting quiz question which is relatively easy to answer because of the Internet but I pose it nonetheless for several reasons:

1. Mild amusement
2. Illustrates our demise
3. A trick question
4. Real answer is actually "doubly true"

Who was the last Englishman to score a goal for Leeds United at Wembley?

Why is the answer "doubly true"?

Why is it a trick question?

Baz will get the answer and post very quickly no doubt but how many of you know it without research?

Hmm

I believe you may be referring to the great Allan " Sniffer" Clarke as the last "Englishman" to score a goal for Leeds United at Wembley ( Cup Final 1972 win vs Arsenal)

Tony Dorigo scored for Leeds United at Wembley against Liverpool in 1992, but although he played for England . being born and bred in Ausland with his distinctive Aussie accent he is no more an "Englishman" than hatrick hero Eric Cantona.

27 May 2024 16:19:31
Baz I'm shocked you got it wrong. You got the Dorigo part right but Sniffer is the incorrect answer. Would you like to guess again? Anyone else want to try?

27 May 2024 17:11:34
Hmm Trevor Cherry

the 1974 Charity Shield rumble in Wembley jungle with Liverpool

I eradicate the 44 day Clough debacle from memory . hated it.

27 May 2024 17:35:27
George: Trevor Cherry in normal play is the last Englishman to score for Leeds United at Wembley in 1974 Charity Shield 1 1 . and if you are referring to pen shootout part Trevor Cherry also I believe

The Clough 44 day debacle is something one wishes never happened and forget.

27 May 2024 18:23:46
Is the correct answer Bazinald almost half a century ago. Trevor got the Bobby McCall during normal time and scored the 5th spot kick in the shootout before Harvey failed with his in sudden death. Hence the double answer feature. No English man has scored for Leeds United at Wembley since that day in 1974.

In honour of his memory, Trevor Cherry RIP.

27 May 2024 18:49:25
Indeed Georgey. RIP Trev Cherry ๐Ÿ’

So just to reiterate Tony Dorigo not being an " Englishman" was the " trick part "? .

27 May 2024 19:36:40
Correct Baz. What's also interesting is Dorigo and Cherry both LBs. Plus Terry Cooper LB got the winner in the League Cup final. We used to do well with decent LBs and then we could not give Alioski a renewed better deal and he liked to score a few. But yes to answer your question, Melbourne is just outside England.

27 May 2024 20:08:51
Indeed George,

Leeds United have had a plethora of excellent LBs scoring quite a few important goals Cooper, Cherry Frankie Gray, Harte, Dorigo, Gianni . Should have been Leif Davis too.

26 May 2024 21:56:02
Stayed away from this forum intentionally all season because too many others were all too vocal about the fact that the current squad was good enough and all too many were clueless to see it.

Well my god!?

Lots of grovelling better ensue!

Agree1 Disagree0

26 May 2024 22:59:21
Chris indeed.

27 May 2024 09:39:57
This squad was / is good enough, but should have sealed it. The Welsh demise, and the international break (eff knows why) put the skids on. Any other season, and we would have been champions.

Donโ€™t hold yer breath waiting for anyone to grovel! What?, we're all too clueless to see it?

27 May 2024 12:46:11
Try harder Brighter


Midfield mediocre
gk appalling
Manager overrated
Didn't play good football for most of season relying in individual brilliance of forwards .2 of whom didn't really want Leeds to get over line
Deja vu end of season meltdown.2 seasons in a row.

27 May 2024 13:09:37
What brothers Chris and Baz say.

27 May 2024 13:24:47
Jebus Baz! Just read back what you have written, and think again.
Amps started season in MF, and was excellent. Kamara and Gruev have been well above solid 95% of the season, and helped the defence deliver some of the strongest stats we have had in recent times as well as in the division.
We have played some beautiful football for a lot of the season, and been entertaining to watch, and recorded some record breaking returns as a result.
This overrated manager now has two promotions and a playoff final to his name in a very short career, and dare I say, is responsible for the turnaround in performances of a preciously cack Dan James, now one of our must keep players.
We finished 3rd with 90 points for Gods sake!
And you consider yourself a realist!? Comedian at a stretch, yes. Overly negative without foundation, defo.
Without doubt, that is your worst, most pointless and inaccurate post to date. Fine, we are all disappointed, but โ€œkeep it realโ€ if youโ€™re going to claim thatโ€™s what you are!

27 May 2024 14:14:01
Ampadu good in mf yes but he has been playing in CD for over half a season so wasnt referring to him

Farke 2 promotions yes but plenty of failure at Norwich too in relegation and in being sacked after one season in Germany

This season 3 teams and managers have been better than Leeds and Farke . and its his woeful game management that is uber concerning

As for your

" beautiful football for a lot of the season ". hmm more Hyperbole Bright.

27 May 2024 15:23:35
Check what negative hyperbole is in that little Thesaurus of yours Baz, as your perspective is unnecessarily and inaccurately excessive in its negativity.
Top in March, 41 from 45 points to bring through 2024, however many that win streak was, etc.
โ€œ2 of them didnโ€™t really want Leeds to get over the lineโ€ or whatever utter drivel is above? For real? Utter codswallop pal. Zero credibility left if you stand by any of that.

27 May 2024 16:04:24
Wouldnt expect your opinions and your soggy cabbage hyperbole to concur with my posts Bright

More than cool with dat fella โ˜บ.

26 May 2024 19:04:40
Didn't turn up as usual. An awful performance.

Yep and yep.

Shortside Upper Level Wembley ยฃ1305.00 per ticket! Iโ€™ve been a member since that format began, and I was on hold online for 4 hours today and could only get one ticket so went on ticket website and for the seat next to me is ยฃ1300! Why are the football clubs not supporting those who continually support them? Apparently itโ€™s not a club issue because they are selling their allocation legally but those who are buying them are then selling illegally! Itโ€™s about time fans started to boycott these big occasions until someone takes note and sorts it! Rant over and so is going to Wembley, I will not be held to ransom, Leeds city centre big screen on I think ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.

{Ed025's Note - good on you Woody....sod these greedy bastards mate..

Agree2 Disagree0

20 May 2024 21:38:46
Cheers Ed, just fed up of companies or people who think itโ€™s clever business to rip off customers who want to have or watch their favourite things! When does it stop Ed, how far do you go before you say enough is enough, well today that was a far as I go with it all! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.

{Ed025's Note - its all around us woody, not just ticket prices but merchandise and kit prices as well and thats without TV subscription mate, i dont know how people with kids do it?, its a massive rip off if you ask me..

21 May 2024 07:42:52
I honestly canโ€™t believe those prices. How do people afford that. Thatโ€™s huge for one day out. Ridiculous.

21 May 2024 19:13:14
You just have to deny your kids everything nice and feed them on leftovers. Simples.

{Ed025's Note - love it alf..

21 May 2024 23:57:49
No kids Alf, so that will just be the wife then? lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘.

22 May 2024 11:31:06
I have just the one child Woody but her mum spoils her so I can go to Wembley.

17 May 2024 23:43:19
Baz DF's DF hysterical ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2024 13:40:01
Lmao his DF impression and script is his best and funniest esp anything Delia related ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜.

It even surpasses Agent Rafa that was my previous fave.

18 May 2024 22:52:38
Just watched it George, absolutely brilliant, DF is some talent eh, have you seen the Harry Kane one where he is trying to get to sign for Man City? So so funny! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

19 May 2024 07:24:23
๐Ÿชตy Seen them all.

Baz My top 3 favourite impressions are:

1. DF
2. Bruce
3. Don Carlo

I also love his "course" Stevie G.

Conor Moore is probably the more talented as an impressionist but Farley's material is superior imo.

19 May 2024 08:16:41
Whatโ€™s the comedians name?

19 May 2024 11:39:49
Daniel Farley Aus, heโ€™s on you tube doing his impressions, heโ€™s bloody brilliant ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.

19 May 2024 12:19:51
Yeah good choices there George. they are all good . I like his Big Sam and Fat Frank too

Aus :
Darren Farley is his name.
Google :' Farley TV youtube '

17 May 2024 19:47:36
I see tge ticket gods are against most again. Members have to have attended 9 games to try and get one, and if any left it goes to members, soo frustrating. Golden wonka bar again.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 May 2024 19:30:54
Does it not present security concerns with Ambrosia fans attending the same location the previous day? For sums of money people are about to pay, many will make a weekend out of it. What are the ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿš” going to do to ensure peace? Seems like a recipe for disaster. Talking of recipes, your boys got cooked ๐Ÿ˜‹ Delia ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 May 2024 18:28:55
35,796 tickets is our allocation for next Sunday. I did think we would get more but it is what it is, again a lot of supporters will miss out.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 May 2024 16:53:09
Not that I really care but on purely football terms as a football fan sacking Wagner was a ridiculous decision from Norwich
However we don't know the ins and outs obviously.
