Looking for Eric is the story of his quest to track down the legends of Elland Road and discover if they lived, breathed, ate, slept, loved, and hated Leeds just as he had—or was it merely a day job? In the course of his journey, Broadbent gathers first-hand accounts of the best and worst moments in the clubs history, including the championship triumphs, cup shocks, and European controversies, as well as unearthing a plethora of stories and anecdotes. We hear Peter Lorimers description of Don Revies neuroses, learn the real reasons behind Gordon Strachans departure, witness Tony Curries battle with the bottle, and discover who had a bust-up with the legendary Pele.
