LUFC On this day July 18th - Leeds lose in Berlin

The former Portsmouth defender is without a club after being released by the south coast club in 2005. (Foxe did not join).
Leeds make their first signing of the summer with winger Seb Carole joining on a free transfer from Brighton and Hove Albion.
The tour to Germany didn`t have the best of starts as Leeds fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Regionalliga Nord (III) side, FC. Union Berlin at their Alte Försterei stadium.
Leeds United Squad:
Loach (Hamman 46), Richardson, Marques, Heath, Parker, Douglas, Prutton, Thompson (Weston 59), Lewis (Carole 59), Kandol (Constantine 59), Beckford (Elliott 71). Subs Not Used: Delph.
Leeds are being strongly linked with a move for Wolves striker Jay Bothroyd. Boss Gary McAllister admits a deal has been agreed to sign a unnamed player. (Bothroyd did not join)
Leeds end their three game tour of Ireland with a 3-1 win at Glentoran. Goals from Robert Snodgrass, Jermaine Beckford and Enoch Showunmi ease Leeds to victory.
The trip to Leicester City in November is moved back 24 hours to Sunday November 6th to avoid a clash with the rugby union at Leicester Tigers on the Saturday.
Leeds United boss Simon Grayson admits they negotiated a new deal ahead of schedule with Patrick Kisnorbo to protect their assets.
