Jabba's Comments

Eddie Gray picked this centre-back from non-league obscurity and although he played a few games for Leeds, he never quite made it as a regular. He played 5 games with Doncaster Rovers on loan before making the move permanenent and going on to become Rovers' captain in a two year spell at Belle Vue.

Cheers to Rochdale's programme editor Mark Wilbraham for the photo.

Martin says: Worked with Tony Brown at Royal London Insurance circa 1992. He became a financial adviser but left to pursue other areas soon after. He was a nice guy and I believe Dennis Irwin of MAN U is one of his close pals, oh well I suppose Dennis is about the best of a bad lot. Where r u now TONY! do you remember me.. Martin Josephson, Norman Potter (rip) and David Silver email me please.

Jim Lofthouse says: tony is now manager of Eccleshill United. they are having an above average season with supatony in charge

Andy Brown says: Tony's team Eccleshill came 8th in the league WELL DONE

Umayr Azam says: Tony Brown was one of the best players I have ever seen play at centre half. I was extremely upset when we sold him to Doncaster, where he proved himself as an extremely capable player.

Cian Armitage says: Cian loves you, Tony!

Nicky Walker says: Tony Brown was the most underated center half that has ever played for Leeds. He was absolutely fantastic for the club and i was really upset to see him sold to Doncaster!

Dale Howard says: The only True word to go with Tony is legend ifit was up to me i would put a statue of him up next 2 billy bremner. Hes the best center half ive ever seen in leeds united colours,true legend.

Dale Hunter says: uncle tony 4 liverpool managers job, ne 1's better than houllier, forget o'neill get super tone!

Horace (leeds fan) says: I thought tony was the best centre half ive ever watched his awareness was the best ive ever watched and i was upset when he was sold

It's mark brown! says: We love you, daddy. Love mark and andrew xxx

It's Dale Hunter + Adam Bennett says: He's the best uncle boys like us could have. We love you Uncle tony!!!!! yeah yeah yeah

Steven Dresser says: Tone had everything- awareness, great tackler, great header, not the fastest but could read the game perfectly. He's currently managing Eccleshill United in Bradford, he's doing v.well! Dennis Irwin used to clean his boots, he shouldn't have got past that stage!

chris bizzell says: he was a dogs bollocks of a defender!

Marinus Van Kerckhoven says: Tony is one of the greatest players in Rochdale history. Leeds, Doncaster and scunthorpe all made the mistake of lettin him go. Rochdale benefitted for 4 great years. He was part of the most famous Rochdale side in history when they got 2 the quarters of the F.A Cup and lost to palace + Do You Vont Cheese?

stuart todd says: I now work with Tony at a company in Shipley, he's recently shaved his moustache off so dosn't get recognised as much. he talks all the time about his days as a professional footballer, i think he really misses it.

Steven Dresser says: Tony Brown is gonna be the next Bradford Park Avenue manager after Trevor Storton's resignation. Watch this Space!!

blinz says: tony is great

Graham Lofthouse says: My Big Bruvver knows Tony Brown. I think that Tony Brown should now take over as Manager of the mighty Leeds, providing that Leeds can afford to pay the mighty Eccleshill United enuf compensation. (Which is doubtfull)
