A wonderful player, in a Leeds team that were unstoppable. Can see him hitting them free kicks now. RIP Peter

Another one bites the dust.

Those of us lucky enough to watch football in the sixties and seventies will recall Lorimer and his fiercesome cannonball shooting.

My word, he could hit a ball like a rocket. Few have ever matched that. Charlton perhaps.

Very sad news.

He was slightly before my time, but wasn't he regarded as having the hardest shot in football?

A fine player - wasn't the greatest fan of that Leeds side under Revie, but he was a hell of a player. If memory serves, he scored in that European Cup final in Paris and had it ruled out?  Leeds were robbed that day.  One by one, all those players on my football card collection in the 1970s are going to the great stadium in the sky.
