who could shoot a ball with a speed that seemed to defy
the laws of physics, a member of that great Leeds side
that graced football pitches some half a century ago.
A tough Scot in a group of hard men who yet
produced moves of rarely matched sublimity
whose white kit reflected their purity and artistry
in the minds of those privileged to have watched
them play back in the day.
A proud part of that team
you were one of the best
players I have ever seen.
