Description

A true story of football intrigue, mystery, blackmail and skulduggery. In 1919, Leeds City player Charlie Copeland was refused a request for a pay rise. Disgruntled, he reported the club for illegally paying guest players during WW1, ultimately causing City's expulsion from the League - and the emergence of a brand new club, Leeds United.
