When he arrived at Elland Road he seemed to be a useful prospect -
if he was half as good as the previous left-back we acquired from
Chelsea, he'd have done very well. However he didn't figure much in
the early half of the 1998-99 season - a notable contribution being a

George Graham at Spurs, but he started 1999-2000 on loan at Man City
and the move became permanent in October. With King Kev expanding the
squad and competition for places hotting up at Maine Road, Granville
moved back to London and became a regular for Palace.
Jimmy says: I met Danny at a wedding he is a quality down to earth
geezer and deserves to be a pro footballer.
Steve Simson says: Danny is a good friend of mine. When we were
younger Danny used to play in the flats with me and my mates. Danny
was a few years younger than us so maybe we helped him play against

with the ball trying to score alone,but what a fantastic thing that
turned out to be and we are all very proud at what Danny has turned
out to be and achieve in his career - i.e. euro cup winners cup medal
winner. So good luck Dan.
Tony Hawkuns says: only once on TV did I see Danny and as one of
