Eddie's younger brother made close to 400 appearances, almost unnoticed. Frank Gray (1971-79 & 1981-85) 404 apps, 35 goals A very reliable full back and sometime midfield player, Eddie's brother was all unfussy efficiency and, to this memory, the slow side of shuffling. That said, he was positively fuel-injected when compared with the steadily deflating space hopper that was Ian Harte. Gray never let Leeds down, though, and kept a rock-steady beat before going to Nottingham Forest to win the European Cup. Allan Clarke re-signed him for Leeds and he made around 400 appearances, almost unnoticed.
