1. Eddie Gray
Leeds United 1966 - 1983, Manager 1982 - 1985, Caretaker Manager 2003 -2004
One of the all time legends for Leeds. Eddie Gray was a one club man, spending 18 years at Elland Road (He was part of the Youth Team in 1965) and after retiring from playing he went on to manage the team in the early 80s.
One of the finest wingers to have ever played in English Football, Gray played with grace and skill that lead him to success in the glory days of Don Revie's Leeds team winning the League in 1969 and 1974, the Fairs Cup in 1968 and 1971, the FA Cup in 1972, Charity Shield in 1969 and EFL Cup in 1968
Voted the 3rd greatest ever Leeds player of all time Eddie Gray is best remembered for his 2 sublime goals against Burnley, where he demonstrated his superior footballing brain and ability, beating for men to score what is considered the Greatest Leeds Goal of all time
2. Frank Gray
Leeds United 1972 - 1979, 1981 - 1985
Younger Brother of Eddie Gray, Frank carved out a career and reputation as a Leeds Utd legend from under the shadow of his older brother.
Gray was part of the Leeds team that were runners up in both the FA Cup and Cup Winners Cup in 1973 as well as the European Cup in 1975 as part of Don Revie's attempts to rebuild another great squad with the Whites. He did win the 1974 First Division
After a couple of years with Nottingham Forest Frank Gray returned to Leeds United under the management of another Leeds Legend Allan Clarke. He stayed with the club until 1985 when his older brother Eddie (now manager) sold him to Sunderland
3. Steve Hodge
Leeds United 1991 - 1994
From the modern era of Leeds United Steve Hodge is a former England International who helped Leeds win their last First Division title and the last of the 'old' first division's before the Premier League was launched
Hodgey made 54 appearances and scored 10 goals from midfield during his time at Elland Road
4. John Lukic
Leeds United 1978 - 1983, 1990 - 1996
Iconic Leeds Utd Goalkeeper John Lukic made 330 appearances for the club and is considered one of the finest goalies to have played for Leeds.
Lukic's finest season for Leeds was the 1991/1992 title winning season when he kept an impressive 20 clean sheets after stepping into the number 1 jersey after the career of Nigel Martyn.
Lukic is one of only 4 men to have played top flight football in 4 separate decades having started in 1978 and ending his career with Arsenal in 2001. (the other 3 are Stanley Matthews, Peter Shilton and Steve Ogrizovic)
Hopefully we will get the final say on the Urban Legend that states his mother Mrs. Lukic was rescued from the Munich Air Disaster!
