Read Promised Land 107 Download ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB » Anthony Clavane Ll club but also the city and the tribes that make it Now that he is an exile in the South his freuent pilgrimages to the stadium speak for themselves But he no less loves the rarely glimpsed back streets of his. I found this book really interesting as it has a lot of personal resonance to me As both a football and a cultural book it s most definitely worth a four star ratingClavane the author is a Leeds lad and a Leeds United fan and his memoir about the city of Leeds and the club weave around many common threads Although the fourth biggest city in the UK is uite obviously presented as developed and multicultural within these pages a racist insularity permeates with divisions and loyalties being presented and uestioned sporadically Clavane also uses the device of presenting his own Jewish identity to help explain some of the sociological history growth and development of the city and almost in diary and memoir form he also tracks Leeds United s history growth and development along with all the snakes and ladders that most football clubs face from era to era Leeds as a concept and actual place proves different to many and different to most in fact with its own uniue City personality being characterised in the book I would say that this very personal appeal of this book holds both plus and minus points If like me you are familiar with Leeds and the economic and social context of the West Riding interested in the culture of football as well as the pure goals and stats empathise with a Jewish heritage and appreciate the nostalgia of local culture and cultural change THEN this book will be valuable to you Within it holds a weaving narration between all these elements and the associated human characters Also featured heavily is a conscious unconscious dream like respect of the Don Revie years and the despair of seasons and challenges left unfulfilled for a long time afterNot being empathetic to any of the above factors would make this book a tedious read for those relatively uninterested in any of the above as Clavane s tapestry is rich well researched and detailed as well as full of personal anecdotes and commentaries Let s face it many of us are speculative and accumulative readers and as far as books are concerned we will try often anything and potentially many This book definitely needs a discerning reader to do its uiet genius justice To them it will shine a new light on an old and historical city club and context To me it inspired a new love for people and places I have always be fond ofRecommended to those above see above Digest wonder and enjoy

I expect I m in a minority of football fans who are fairly ambivalent about Leeds United It was a little before my time but I ve heard plenty stories over the years about Don Revie and his Dirty Leeds But then they had a very strong core of Scottish players that I looked up to in my childhood Mcueen Jordan Arthur Graham or heard others raving about their predecessors Bremner Lorimer Eddie Gray At one point Revie had seventeen Scots on the books Even later Leeds sides had the odd sprinkling of Scottish swagger think Gordon Strachan Gary McAllister or recently Robert Snodgrass So I have never hated Leeds United Elland Road Stadium is neither the promised land or hell on earth to me even if both Leeds players and fans have often been associated with the uglier side of the game It may be harder for partisan English football supporters to read this book with such an open mind but it could allow you to see the club in a slightly different lightWhether or not there s any truth in this dirty Leeds stuff as with many things related to football there s a pantomime villain element to it I ve seen enough clips to know that those Leeds United teams of the 60 s and early 70 s did not enjoy their successes through brute force or intimidation alone One thing that comes across in this book is that Dirty Leeds did not always win ugly In part because they didn t actually win that much At least not as many trophies as they could have They were not nearly as dominant as say Liverpool in the 80 s or Manchester United over the last decade or two All too often Leeds blew it at the final hurdle In fact Promised Land starts with a description of their biggest nearly moment when they could have won the European Cup in 1975 were it not for an offside flag A few years earlier Leeds were said to have been denied a championship due to an offside goal West Brom s Jeff Astle scored against them This is the writer as a fan coming to the fore because supporters will always point to a critical moment that stopped their dream from becoming a reality For the rest of us Leeds didn t win the title that season or the European Cup a few years later End of story Anthony Clavane is a Leeds United fan The book is none the worse for its lack of neutrality On the contrary as with many of the best football books it is all the better for being written by someone with a genuine passion for the subject matter And he doesn t shy away from talking about the club s darker side at times In addition to the football Promised Land is a personal and family memoir of the Jewish community he grew up in He has recently published another book about the Jewish presence in English football called Does Your Rabbi Know You re Here He touches on some of that in this work which also has some very interesting social history of Leeds in the twentieth century and explains how both the city and the club came from nowhere to become a powerhouse in the land
