Remember The Young Leeds United Fan Crying On The Day They Got Relegated? This is Him Today.

Remember The Young Leeds United Fan Crying On The Day They Got Relegated? This is Him Today.


If you watched the Bolton wanderers vs Leeds United match on the 2nd of May 2004, you will be familiar with this picture.

This is one of the most famous picture that year. It went around the world catching people's attention. In the picture is a young boy later to be known as Ricky Allman (11) crying as his beloved club Leeds United succumbed to a 4 - 1 scoreline at the Reebok stadium. The result saw them relegated that year and they would spend the next 16 years in the championship.

Ricky Allman, probably, like every other fans and player thought they could salvage something. But when the worst became obvious, even the coming to the away stand to console their fans was not going to be enough for the young man.


Accross his chest was the inscription "LEEDS TILL I DIE"

In a sky sports interview recently he said "the relegation never left him". But he was happy they eventually got the deserved promotion.

Leeds United won the skybet championship with two games to spare in July 2020 after West Bromwich Albion, their closest rival, lost to Huddlesfield.

This is Ricky Allman now celebrating Leeds United winning the Skybet Championships This July 2020.

Who do you know in Nigeria that is comparable as a fan?

Would you still follow your present club to the lower league?
