Today marks 21 years since our most successful manager to date passed away and the tributes have been flying across Twitter, Facebook and the various Leeds United websites across the net.

There’s little anyone can say that hasn’t already been said. Don Revie has now been immortalised by the Leeds United fans that worshipped him and stories of his success and character will continue to be passed down to each new generation of Leeds United fans.

Don Revie was a pioneer of the game. His meticulous planning revolutionised football and brought him great success as a manager. Sometimes ruthless, his Leeds United team was feared across the world and disliked by envious critics and opposition fans alike, who couldn’t see the hard tackling style, born from a relentless determination to win for what it was.

The anniversary of Don’s death comes at a time when he’s being remembered more than ever. He too once brought Leeds United out of the dark depths of lower division football. Leeds United’s anthem, Marching On Together, which was originally sang by his team is back in the charts and plans are well under way for a statue to be built in Revie’s honour.

An innovator, a hero and a legend. Never forgotten.

Don Revie, RIP.
