Yesterday marked one of the most infamous moments in our history – the 1975 European Cup final.

Of course, we don’t really want to think too much about the anniversary because, of course, it’s proved to be one of the most contentious issues in our past.

We should, really, have become European Champions for the first time against Bayern Munich but for reasons we’re all aware of, that didn’t come off.

Let’s take a look, then, at the response to the tweet the club put out to mark the occasion:

The Verdict

Obviously, getting to the final was an achievement and we could only dream of getting there now as things stands but, even so, it still hurts.

We were good enough to take the trophy back to West Yorkshire and had it basically stolen away from us.

What do you remember of it? Let me know!

  • I was there in 1975 and it still haunts me to this day.Even now I can still see Beckenbauer chopping down sniffer in the box and the ref not giving a penalty.Worst day of my life.And the wife wonders why I won’t take her to Paris

  • Watched it at Pontins in Morecambe Mum,Dad and Brother watching it with loads of Leeds fans, as an 11 year old I was heartbroken, some things never change. Robbed !!! Watched a programme about Bayern Munich and even their players couldn’t understand why we didn’t get a pen and the goal was dissallowed
