eddie gray leeds united manager The Leeds board like the fans were now despondent, the fans had been staying away in numbers and Leeds faced the new season in division two, after so recently being one of the most feared teams in Europe. It was a boost when Eddie Gray was promoted from youth team coach to manager. The popular Revie star had two spells as manager at Leeds and in the first he took over after Leeds had just been relegated. Bringing players through from the youth team like John Sheridan, Scott Sellars, Dennis Irwin and Tommy Wright. Gray made steady progress finishing his first season in eighth place. The team played good, stylish football through Gray's reign and made decent runs. The side he'd built though, with the little money he had, didn't have the steel or nous to get out of the hardest division in England. Leeds had the likes of Worthington and Harvey who had made a come back, but the rest of his team were only promising youngsters, in a league that needed knuckle and experience. To the dismay of the fans and board members, one actually resigned, Gray was finished after the season of 1984-85. Mid 2003-04 saw Gray made caretaker manager. Starting where Peter Reid had left, a desperate mis-match of a team, sliding from the Premiership. Gray did his best, with the little time he had, but to no avail as Leeds were relegated, blameless Gray was sacked. Kevin Blackwell took temporary control for the final game.
