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 -
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
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!)
