jimmy adamson leeds united manager After Stein left after his brief spell for Scotland the Leeds board put Maurice Lindley in charge as caretaker manager until a replacement could be found. Surprisingly Leeds offered the post to Jimmy Adamson, the man who had failed to turn it round at Sunderland was given the task of trying the same at Leeds. Adamson had been a successful player. Winning the league title with Burnley in 1960 and the Footballer of the Year award two years later. His footballing talents however did not stretch too far into the managing side of things.
He arrived at Leeds with the team winning just four of their first ten games and he managed to pull things round with the team finishing in 5th position.
Unsettled Tony Currie left and faces from Revie's side Clarke, Reaney and F.Gray were to leave, leaving Adamson making decent signings like Kevin Hird, Alan Curtis, Brian Greenhoff, Gary Hamson and Derek Parlane but he couldn't get the best out of them. The team struggled badly and the fans either stayed away or joined the ranks of protestors who wanted 'Adamson Out'.
After losing four of the opening five games in 1980-81 the Leeds fans got their wish with Adamson resigning. A positive note for the Adamson era was the emergence of Terry Connor, the local lad who scored on his debut, being the silver lining of this sorry time.
