Jabba's Comments

Ian Snodin was a creative midfielder, 3 years younger than brother Glynn, who was sold to Leeds by Billy Bremner when Bremner was in charge at Doncaster, and it was Bremner who sold him again when he was in charge at Leeds. Not that Billy had anything against Snodin: he was a very talented player who played 4 times for the England U-21 side while he was still at Doncaster. In just 18 months at Elland Road, Snodin became a key part of the team and was hugely popular, but to allow him to further his career - and to bank some money - he was allowed to move to Everton. Switching to right-back, he picked up a League Champions medal in 1987 and was on the point of breaking into the full England side when hit by a long-term injury that seriously restricted his career. He ended up with Doncaster - relegated from the Football League - and was manager there from 1998-2000, with the odd and very occasional appearance himself when the need arose, his one mistake being that he failed to realise that he was their best player and pick himself more often.

Graham Cant says: Ian Snodin is the best footballer I have ever seen play live. This was for Doncaster Rovers in the days of the late great Billy Bremner. Rovers knocked QPR (then top division) out of the FA Cup and Snodin was superb that day, totally eclipsing the then England international John Gregory. Surely Ian should have played for England...sadly injuries took their toll.

Dave Ward says: Snodin but for injuries would have been a regular England player for years. He had everything a player needed. Pure class

ian snodin jnrsays: ian snodin is my dad

zoe snodin says: yes i have a comment even though he tells me to tidy my room all the time im proud of him and couldnt ask for a better dad!

Chris Marsden says: After Bremner and Batty the best No. 4 Leeds Utd have ever had. The best passer of a ball I've seen at Elland Road and a amn nice bloke - enjoyed a pint or two with him at a Worksop Supporters club 'Player of the Season' night (after he'd moved to Everton).

Peter Stannard says: Ian Snodin Jnr plays for same junior team as me !!! (Rossington Boys)
