Jabba's Comments

John Pemberton joined Leeds in 1993 to help shore up a defence that had lost its way after winning the Championship a year previously. He did a great job, playing mainly at centreback, with the fans appreciating his whole-hearted - if sometimes clumsy - interventions.

Chris Hobson says: pembos the most underrated leeds player ever(cheers for autograph pembo) ur my fav all time player.

johnny lord says: best thing he did was nack collymore

Luke Cullen says: Pembo was spot on. As the caption says, he wasn't the best defender technically but always gave 100%. He used to always have run ins with Andrew Cole, too. Oh, and he was on Blue Peter once singing Crystal Palace's 1990 FA Cup fnal song.

Julie says: I was his biggest fan when he was at Crystal Palace. I remember seeing him in our victory over Liverpool in the 1990 FA Cup semi final, his gorgous legs in those shorts... wow (I am a female by the way, love to know what he's doing these days.

Mark says: I remember him playing against Middlesbrough at Elland Road in about 1995. John Hendrie had been flattened down by the North East corner flag. He berated the clumsy Pembo for nearly killing him. Pemberton waited until the ref turned his back and wallop! He twatted him right in the mouth, knocking him down. That is my favourite Pembo moment.

Sue says: I remember John from Crystal Palace, a trip to Villa and how his run changed the whole game and then of course a trip to Wembley to meet Man U. WHERE IS HE NOW. (and yes I agree he did look good in shorts and very cute!)
