Jabba's Comments

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.

russ says: i think he liked cats!!!!

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.

Liesl Alderson says: I used to work with his Dad. I went to my first match with his Dad who got me vip tickets. Went in the players lounge and sat just behind Wilkinson-fantastic day

johnny lord says: scored a cracking hat trick vs sheff utd in a 5-0 drubbing we dished out to them en all....covered in mud he was only really good memory i have of him
