Anthony Clavane, a son of Leeds born of Jewish immigrant forebears, is a passionate Leeds United supporter. In his book Promised Land charts the club’s rises and falls from inauspicious beginnings, through the era of Don Revie – who transformed a club who were a laughing stock in 1961 into the most feared, and reviled, club in Europe by the time he left in 1974 – the European Cup final disaster of 1975, the false dawn of a League Championship title in 1992 and the financial meltdown under the chairmanship of Peter Ridsdale. Clavane's book explores the relationship between Leeds United and the Jewish community in the city.
