A Leeds United XI made up of Elland Road cult heroes - from Vinnie Jones to Luciano Becchio

A cult hero is a hard thing to define at any football club never mind Leeds United.

The Whites have had legends come and go through Elland Road's doors - while others have left with little fuss in West Yorkshire after failing to make a huge impact.

A cult hero lies somewhere between the two, not quite a fully-fledged legend but someone who gave their all for the shirt and could relate to supporters in a way that maybe others struggled to do so.

Some entrenched themselves into United folklore with their on-pitch (or off pitch) actions while others are remembered for a particular standout moment.

Leeds have had plenty of characters represent the white shirt over the years and each person is forever part of the LS11 family - but few made inroads quite like those with 'cult hero' status.
