Bloody hell, talk about hyperbole! Or hyper bollocks in this case! Use the words Leeds Legend and you think Billy Bremner, Eddie Gray, Norman Hunter, Don Revie, Johnny Giles, Sniffer, Jack Charlton, Terry Cooper, Peter Lorimer, Terry Yorath and Neil Warnock but Brendan Ormsby? By what perverse definition of the word is Brendan Ormsby a Leeds Legend?
How many games for the club? 57! How many trophies won when with the club? None. Most abiding memory for Leeds fans? His mistake against Coventry in the semi-final of the FA Cup!
Surely the Yorkshire Post should be done under the Trades Descriptions Act! Ormsby was born in Birmingham and if he is anybody's legend, he is a Villa legend, but that would be pushing it given he only played 117 games for the club! A legend at Pontefract Collieries is the truth of the matter!
Mind you, Ormsby could be a comedy legend too! His latest suggestion to take over at Leeds? Alan "Turds" Curbishley no less, the man who has been out of the game for so long since his departure from West Ham that younger fans say, "Who?"
Curbishley? The guy was a specialist at little old Charlton, managing a club with zero expectations and specialising in staying one step ahead of the drop. Is this what Leeds need? Has the club really fallen so far? Well according to Ormsby, Poyet and Zola wouldn't be interested because Brighton and Watford are much more likely to be in the Prem next season! Charming! A great way to endear yourself to Whites fans still dreaming of a charge into and through the playoffs.
Ormsby a Leeds legend? If I keep this blog going, the Yapping Post will call me a Leeds legend before we know it! Hang on, there's a thought, never mind that Warnock statue, build a statue of Hammersfan outside Elland Road!
