1973 was probably one of the most controversial European Cup Winners Cup Final's ever as an injury and suspension ravaged Leeds United took on champions elect of Serie A, AC Milan. Only days after Leeds United had suffered a shock FA Cup Final defeat by Sunderland rumours were abound that Don Revie would leave the club to take over the vacant manager's job at Everton following the departure of Harry Catterick. Without the suspended Billy Bremner and Allan Clarke as well as injuries to Johnny Giles and Eddie Gray a patched up team would have to face the Italian giants. Much as been written about this match but what is certain Greek referee Christos Michlas would never take charge of a game at international level again.
