Another part of my childhood away, absolutley loved him as a nipper.
Helluva player, dynamite in that right boot of his.
Part of a great Scottish national team and, infamously, curator of the "Helga incident" also known as the "Big Helga incident" during the 1974 World Cup.
Had a goal disallowed in the controversial 1975 European Cup final against Bayern, a game Leeds should have won.
RIP fella, a fair thinning out of that great Leeds team of the early 70s going on.
Don't know a thing about him, but I know what it's like losing childhood heroes.
I remember him well from the days when Leeds were a team to be reckoned with. As you say, a fair number of them no longer with us.
