Sad news is reaching us that former Manchester United, Leeds and Rochdale centre-half Brian Greenhoff died suddenly today at the age of 60.

Greenhoff made 271 appearances for United between 1970 and 1979, though his most famous was surely in the 2-1 FA Cup Final win over Liverpool in 1977 that saw United nix Liverpool’s hopes of completing the treble that year…

    “And then there’s Brian Greenhoff, he’s got lots of skill, and he really needs it, to play with Gordon Hill!”
