Topic: Peter Lorimer

In hospital, seriously ill with brain cancer. May not be everyone's cup of tea in the last few years with some of his views but a true Leeds United legend. Wish him nothing but the best.

Re: Peter Lorimer

Yes all the best, a player i underated as a kid, didn't appreciate how good he was until seeing youtube clips of some of his footwork.

I never gave a shit about his mouth piecing for Bates etc. Lets face it he probably needed the money and it elevated him from being just a landlord in a low grade pub (I have never been there so don't know for sure) to someone with a nice sideline being paid to yap.

Lets be serious what influence over the fans did he have? Very little. Bates was wasting his money.

Re: Peter Lorimer

I remember feeling what a pointless signing he was when Eddie Gray signed him in 83. I few weeks later it became apparent that he was actually our best player.

Although to be fair Sheridan did miss most of that season !
