The 2010–11 season saw Leeds United A.F.C. return to the second tier of English football for the first time in four years with them finishing in a respectable 7th position in The Championship, just missing out on the play-offs. In other competitions, the club performed poorly in the League Cup, going out in their first match, however made it to the third round of the FA Cup forcing Premier League giants Arsenal to a replay in the process.

For the first time since 1990-91, Simon Grayson's team saw four players, Becchio (20), Gradel (18), Somma (12) and Howson (11), make it in to double figures in the scoring charts. After a disastrous end to the previous season, Gradel rejuvenated himself and picked up both the Fans' and Players' Player of the Year with Young Player going to the much improved Howson.[1] Off the field, Chairman Ken Bates consolidated his ownership of the club by purchasing a majority shareholding in the club.[2]
