I was never a Leeds fan, but watched in awe at their great side of the 70s. So sad to see so many of that team passing away in the last 12 months or so. As a Scot in exile, I’m also mourning a Scottish great from a happier era for Scotland football. RIP Peter.

One of things that regularly pops in to my mind for no reason whatsoever is the commentator Coleman on MOTD exclaiming 'LORIMER!' as another thunderbolt flies in to the net. The balls were much heavy then too!
I was just a young kid then but always shouted Lorimer when I struck the ball! and scored
He was a superb striker of the ball and I shall always remember those days.
RIP Peter Lorimer

Only time I'll say these words, I wish this was another social media so we can all see and ask the down voters why? He was before my time but seen documentaries about the great Leeds side he was involved in. Oh and as a fellow Scot, he scored in WC, many up here haven't even seen us in one.

A truly great player.
Just one memory will do.
At White Hart Lane, in the snow. Orange ball.
Free kick fairly central 35-40 yards out.
PL builds a little tee in the snow. Carefully places the ball on it.
Everyone knows he’s going to shoot, including the great Pat Jennings (in his prime).
Never in doubt.
The ball flies straight in, pure accurate power. Nothing the keeper could do.

Lorimer certainly helped complete the 'dirty Leeds' team.

They had Norman 'bites ya legs' Hunter, Johnny 'right hook' Giles and Billy 'bone breaker' Brenner. So they needed a diver to complete the set.

Lorimer was that man.

I can clearly hear him say " watch Lorimer he's going to shoot" and even then I knew he was something special. My dad also got really annoyed that Joe Jordan was my favourite!

Speak for yourself, plenty of fans care about each other. Not everything has to be toxic and viewed as a child.

Lorimer was a great player in a great Leeds team from the late 60's through to the mid 70's. I remember some fierce clashes but each team gave as good as they got, something players and fans of today won't understand.

RIP hot shot, YNWA.
