Ian Porterfield, R.I.P.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You shocked the mighty Leeds
With your FA Cup winner
You became a household name
We even talked of you over dinner

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You’ll forever be remembered
Part of the folklore of ’73
And on Wearside they mourn you
That much is plain to see

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But there’s appreciation elsewhere :
Fond memories down at the Bridge
Also in Armenia, Zambia, Trinidad & Tobago
World Cup Qualification – you took them to the ridge

Ian Porterfield, died Tuesday 11th September, 2007, aged 61
