Dirty Leeds eleven -

Sprake

Mills
Kenny Burns
Molenar
Aizlewood

Collins
Vinny
Batty
Yorath

Baird
Hankin

wouldn't be the most skillfull team but could probably stop those who thought they were.

I'd add big Jack to your list but my for my "hard men" team I didn't consider those in the all time best team as initially posted, I'm sure there are a few more options but these are what came to mind.

Joe Jordan would be in for me, he was and still is as hard as nails.
We are Leeds, we have to believe our new players are good enough, encourage and support them and help them grow in to a team to be reckoned with. MoT

These kind of comparisons, whilst interesting are largely pointless because the conditions of the game are so very different.

If you magically transported a team from the 70s' and put them in today's Premier League, provided they could adjust to not being able to commit GBH when tackling, they would get trounced. The physical and metal fitness of the modern player far outstrips that of the 70's players.

That said, had George Best been born in 1980 and had Sir Alex as his manager, he would probably made Messi look like a drunken carthorse. Eddie Gray, with modern training, equipment, conditioning, diet and physiotherapy would have been sold to Real for £150m.
