The Don Revie Story

Published on 7th February 2016 by

Don Revie has gone down in history as one of the greatest football managers the UK has ever seen. Revie had a decent career in football as a player and it was at his last club as a player, Leeds United, that he would be given his first opportunity in management in 1961. It was the beginning of a fairy tale relationship which lasted 13 years and saw Leeds win two league titles, one FA cup, one League cup, and two European competitions. He went on to replace the World Cup winning England manager Sir Alf Ramsay in 1974.

The Don Revie story is a 1989 Yorkshire Television biographical documentary which looks back at the life and career of Revie and features appearances from numerous people who were connected with him through football. The film was made as a tribute to Revie who had died earlier in the same year.


If you want to learn more about the life and career of Don Revie, particularly his time at Leeds, then consider purchasing the book The Unforgiven: The Story of Don Revie’s Leeds United. The book was co-authored by Rob Bagchi and Paul Rogerson and is available to purchase in paperback, hardback and kindle formats.
