Season summary

David O'Leary took Leeds United to their first European Cup semi-final since 1975, where defeat at the hands of Valencia ended their chances of a repeat of the ill-tempered 1975 European Cup clash with Bayern Munich, who beat Real Madrid in the other semi-final. Still, this disappointment was less of a dampener on a season where Leeds had fielded a predominantly young squad. They finished fourth in the final table, which meant that their place in Europe for 2001-02 would be in the UEFA Cup rather than the European Cup.

Failure to qualify for the Champions League was viewed as merely a disappointment by fans of the club, given the success in reaching the semi-final. In fact, the directors of the club had secured tens of millions of pounds of loans on successful Champions League qualification; the failure to qualify was a calamity that would see the club suffer financial disaster and be relegated twice in the coming seasons.
