  • - Leeds clinched the title at Anfield. A defeat for Leeds might have swung the championship towards the home team, but Leeds held out and won the title. When the Liverpool players left the pitch, the Leeds players didn't know what to do with themselves. Walking towards the Kop, they were unsure of the reception they'd get from the 53,750 fans packed inside Anfield.

    One Leeds player raised his hand towards the Kop and then the others followed suit. At first there was silence, then the applause started and it just didn't stop. The reaction from the Kop that night is legendary.

    "To stand there as a Leeds player and be cheered by the Kop that was something," claimed Charlton after the game. "I'll never forget it." Don Revie enthused: "It was simply fantastic, What a great gesture. You would have thought their team had won the league!"
