I don't know if it was the fans who voted for this top 100 or if the list was issued by the club.

Well Cantona is at number 35 and he was there a very short period of time and they have Granville Hair jst behind all the well known greats, he must have been a Superstar in his day, I'm gonna google him to find out.

A bit sad this.


Grenville Hair (born 16 November 1931 in Burton-upon-Trent, England; died 7 March 1968 in Bradford, England) was a footballer who played his entire professional career for Leeds United between 1948 and 1964. He later became the manager of Wellington Town and Bradford City. He died of a heart attack, aged 36, after supervising a training session at Bradford City.

GH was an exceptional all round sportsman. He played 443 games for Leeds and word has it if he had played for a London club he would have been capped for England. I'm pretty certain he did his national service alongside John Charles. I think again he hadn't been at Bradford that long when he passed away. I'm going to have to look now for the signed photo and I'll put it up on here, now where to start looking first :roll:
