Many Leeds supporters have been recollecting their memories of former Whites centre-forward Lee Chapman.

During his 18-year career, Chapman spent two stints at Elland Road, having first joined United on a permanent transfer in the winter of 1990 from Nottingham Forest, in a deal TransferMarkt note set us back £450,000.

The Lincoln-born striker would spend the following three-and-a-half years in West Yorkshire before moving on to south coast side Portsmouth, but he had already left a lasting memory to those associated with Leeds.

Three years after his exit, the former England U21 international would then return to Elland Road for a short-term loan deal from Ipswich Town, as he saw out the final months of his career with us, Swansea, and Stromsgodset.

Over the course of his career, he would represent 14 clubs across England, Wales, France and Norway, but it was with us where he enjoyed his most time on the field and where he would score his most goals.

Altogether, Chapman made 70 outings for United across his two stints at Elland Road, in which he scored 26 goals, and played a part in our 1992 old First Division title-winning season.

We were, in fact, also the only side he would strike double figures with, and the only club where he would reach a half-century of appearances.

Twenty-three years after the final of his appearances for United, Chapman is still remembered fondly by these supporters…

  • So, the favourites with the bookies is Leeds, NOT WITH THIS SQUAD THEY ARE NOT!! Hell make jansson captain and build around him, he is the only Leeds player with any heart, the rest are garbage.Ive been loyal since 1957 but Im close to saying NO MORE!!!! NO DEFENCE< NO REGULAR GOAL GETTERS, Bielsa will need a mirracle to get them into a top 6 place this time.Bamford can get on his bike as well as mr pony tail defender and at least another 5 to get rid of.A solid keeper is needed too.No,2019/20 will end the same.

  • I agree with making Pontus captain, Liam Cooper or Captain Calamity isn’t fit to clean the boots lett alone wear them. Big game big disappointment sums him up. Make or break for Bamford, who knows he might surprise a few,but I won’t hold my breath. The team needs more passion
