Hoping that this is a wrongly heard rumour, but if true, it's very sad. What a terrible past 12 months for our club legends :cry:

One of my childhood heroes too. Always loved the way Peter celebrated his goals when he seem to miss his hands clapping with his arms raised in the air :supbo:

It was first reported Peter was very poorly back in 2017 but then it seemed he had made a good recovery.

Really sad news as a kid I always wanted to kick as hard as he did, he definitely had a super power :cry:

Very sad news and fingers crossed for him.

As a kid he was my favourite player. I had a 7 on the back of my shirt and the blue and white #7 sock ties

He's not been well for some time.

Sad and I wish him well but fear it will not be long before we lose another of the Revie legends.

He was the Scottish Raphinha ov his time. I went thru a spell of watching lots of old Docu's on Leeds and it seemed like Lorimer never scored a tap-in. Goals win games and it seemed Peter scored some corkers.

It's a pity that a lot of stuff that happened , like goals etc , weren't all available like the saturation of stuff nowadays .I think he took a free kick v Wolves one time from half way and the shot was so hard the keeper still had to party it rather than catch it , don't think footage exists though . I think it was a game I went to hence the memory .

I remember that free kick as well and I know I didn’t go to the game . I think it was at Molineux but may be wrong . I’m pretty sure it was Phil Parkes in goal for them and he pushed the ball over the bar .

What a player Peter Lorimer was .

Nice little compilation here. If he caught the ball sweet, there was only one outcome.
