The lads just had an operation on a Brain tumour wish him all the best, a top legend at Leeds United and some other team - Scotland

ba***rd disease.


Hoping he gets a full recovery, depending on what level the tumour was, will determine the quality, longevity of life for him. The countries fastest , growing cancer, more under 40's die from brain tumours than any other form of cancer, there as been a 100% increase in under 19's dying from them in the last 10 years yet still only 1% of all cancer funding goes toward research into this area of the disease.

Hate to see him in that condition but we all have to deal with that we contract.

Best of luck Dom and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Good luck to him with his fight , I hope it goes well as he’s only 45 with 3 kids.

Loved his attitude during his time with us and showed his love for the club by asking to stay when other players were jumping ship during our relegation but the board saw an asset and sold him.

Probably best remembered for his f*****g great goal in the San Siro which ensured our qualification to the knockout stage of the Champions League and which I was fortunate to witness first hand along with in excess of 7,000 Leeds fans.

Get well soon Dom
