2006
Leeds complete the signing of defender Hayden Foxe on a five month deal.


2007
Having been deducted 15 points before a ball is kicked in Leeds first season in League One, the players show the fighting spirit that will see them make a determined start at Tranmere.

Tranmere had led through a Chris Greenacre goal before Matt Heath equalised for Leeds.

Tresor Kandol sparked great scenes in the final minute when he stooped to head the winner for Leeds.

2008
Gary McAllister installs Fraser Richardson as the new Leeds United captain for the coming season.

2010
Leeds find out that they will be un seeded when the second round of the Carling Cup takes place later in the week.


2011
Robert Snodgrass scores his first international goal for Scotland as he scores the winner in the 2-1 friendly win over Denmark.

Leeds were handed a local derby in the Second round of the Carling Cup. Leeds will make the short trip to the Keepmoat Stadium to face Doncaster Rovers.

2012
Leeds United have completed the signing of El Hadji Diouf.

Diouf has signed for Leeds on a non-contract basis after being released by Doncaster Rovers at the end of last season, where he made 23 appearances.

Leeds start the season with a 4-0 win over Shrewsbury Town in the League Cup at Elland Road.

2013
Leeds United battled to a 0-0 draw at Leicester City in a dour game at the King Power Stadium.

The first half was almost a non-event. Leeds started brightly with Rodolph Austin having shot blocked and Jason Pearce heading over.

Leicester`s best chance was a Danny Drinkwater shot that was deflected wide but neither keeper had a shot to save and the half was summed up with the final kick of the half when Ross McCormack found row z with his shot.

The second half continued in much the same vain. Andy King headed over for the hosts and Drinkwater shot over the bar.

The game came to life with the introduction of the substitutes. Knockaert was battling in midfield for Leicester and Dominic Poleon added pace to the Leeds attack.

James Vardy forced Paddy Kenny into the first save of the game on 73 minutes and minutes later, he beat Kenny to the ball but he couldn`t keep it on target.

Chris Wood replaced Vardy and he came closest of all to scoring when his left foot shot cannoned back of a post.

Leeds substitute Matt Smith almost won the game in injury time but Kasper Schmeichel tipped his header around the post.
