Jabba's Comments

John Grattan Hendrie (not named after the catalogue to the best of my knowledge) was a talented - if injury-prone winger who spent the Division 2 promotion season at Elland Road, although he missed nearly 3 months of the campaign with assorted injuries. His crosses and runs played a big part in the promotion campaign, and even though he rarely completed the full 90 minutes of a game. His best period as a player came during a 6 year stay at Boro where he finally found a bit of fitness and used his pace to good effect. He later had a spell in management with Barnsley and occasionally appears on TV as a summariser or pundit for Sky.

Stephen Hendrie says: Autobiography sums up most of his antics as a youngster. i.e. boy that was picking on him john peed on his head (Don't ask how).

Thomas Hague says: John Hendrie had to be one of the best players to put on a Bradford City shirt. I just loved watching those bandy legs fly down the wing or the great use of his backside to turn defenders and his great diving skill to win penalties. What a guy.

Eggman says: John Hendrie is still is great, great player. I played along with him in a soccer six charity event on Sunday, he was amazing and cos of him, we won!Brilliant!
