CAPTAIN FANTASTIC: Leeds United's Billy Bremner.
Have your say

HE was the red-headed tiger who inspired Leeds United during their glory years of the 1960s and 1970s.

Billy Bremner, memorably once described as 10st of barbed wire and a player whose achievements will never be forgotten at Elland Road.

It will be 20 years on Thursday, December 7, since King Billy’s death and, to mark the anniversary, the Yorkshire Evening Post will be running a special commemoration of his life and times.

YEP readers can add their own words to the coverage by e-mailing or writing to Paul Robinson, Yorkshire Evening Post, No.1 Leeds, 26 Whitehall Road, Leeds LS12 1BE.

Tributes for inclusion in Thursday’s YEP can also be left on our Leeds United Facebook page.

Bremner made more than 750 appearances for United between 1960 and 1976, skippering the Whites to two league titles, an FA Cup triumph and a host of other silverware.

He also managed Leeds as they reached the FA Cup semi-final and Division Two play-off final during the 1986-87 season.
