Those of us who only ever saw John Pearson at Leeds may have a
slightly biased view of this tall, strong centre-forward. Our memories
may be coloured somewhat by memories of his agricultural efforts that
resulted in several good chances inside the six yard box going a good
20 feet over the bar. In fairness to the bloke, he spent 15 years in
the game, and had a decent enough reputation at Sheffield Wednesday
and had done pretty well at Charlton when Leeds brought him back to
Yorkshire. He was frequently used as a sub, but even so his
goalscoring rate was just not good enough for a first choice striker
and he found his opportunities limited.

Scon + Fletch say: JEEZUZ we had the pleasure of being his
neighbour!! Our cats went missing as well, only now he has moved has
the garden bird population started to decline again as more cats
ploriferate the area.
