Leeds United, the unlikely stars, never remembered

DATE: 13.05.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17

Everyone thought this would be the season to see the former greats back in the Premier League again, but it never happened
 

The greatest players of Leeds United will always be remembered as they became heroes in white, but a number of players who also played for Leeds were much like "guys in disguise" while at Elland Road.

They were like "ghosts in wrong clothes" as they appear as "legends" elsewhere. Ian Rush and Robbie Fowler will for always be Liverpool heroes, but they both also played at Leeds, but never will be remembered as "heroes".

Rio Ferdinand never did anything wrong in a Leeds shirt, but his life in football is mostly about his time at Manchester United where he was part of a historical time in football, and maybe one of the greatest defenders ever to play for "Red Devils".

Players such as Fabien Delph, Aron Lennon and James Milner are all players coming through the acadmey at Leeds United. All of them gifted talents with an England career, and they were all sold to "bigger and better".

A name that always turns up as a "misfit" is Swedish international Thomas Brolin, who joined Leeds from Parma, after a great career with the Italians and in the Swedish national team.

A name that turned up and that must be said to be forgotten was Seth Johnson. At the time when Leeds bought him he was an England international and the future looked bright, but at Leeds it never happened for Johnson.

You could go on and on about Leeds United and their "vasted" or "sold" talent, and of course Nick Barmby comes to mind. England international and mostly known for his great days at Tottenham Hotspur.

If you go back a bit you also had players such as Kenny Burns, Frank Worthington and Peter Barnes. All loved and fondly remembered for their great days with clubs such as Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Manchester City.

John McGovern is another, brought to Leeds by Brian Clough, after being a key player at Derby, winning the league and later captain at Nottingham Forest doing just the same, winning the league. McGovern's time at Leeds was like a book of "Swedish world war heroes".

Garry Monk is a manager that could get the club back to the top and hopefully he will be given the time to build on this season and start the climb back to the "Holy Land" where they belong. But then he must be able to "keep talent" and not collect more "unlikely stars".
