William John ‘Billy’ Bremner is one of the true greats of British football. He captained Don Revie’s Leeds United during the late 1960s and early ’70s – the most successful period in their history – and went on to make 587 appearances for the club, as well as winning over fifty caps for his native Scotland.
The diminutive Bremner was the archetypal midfield general, renowned for his tenacity and tough tackling but also an astute and intelligent user of the ball, characteristics that helped guide Leeds United to two First Division titles, a Second Division title, the Inter-City Fairs Cup, FA Cup and a European Cup Final in 1975, which they lost to Bayern Munich. In Billy Bremner: Fifty Defining Fixtures, passionate Leeds fan Dave Tomlinson takes a look at Bremner’s career and remembers the games that defined Leeds United’s greatest ever player.
